Dr. Saini has been the absolute coolest doctor and I for one am extremely standoffish and skeptical of doctors. I was in a very severe car wreck a few years ago and now every time I visit an orthopedist I leave without an appointment, without a referral, a hefty bill, and an extremely depressing feeling that I am a junkie. One doctor actually told me
&quot;You just want to spend the rest of your life taking xanax and lortab and I refuse to prescribe them to you.&quot; Dr. Saini at RR Pyschiatry however was willing to meet me halfway, initially trying me on klonopin while maintaining an incrementally increased regiment. As I found the a bit debilitating and indeed unsafe as it made me so sleepy, he respectfully explained the abuse potential of xanax (like all benzos though moreso), its mechanism of action (as a GABA agonist with a short half-life) and prescribed enough of the medicine to cope with my PTSD and anxiety problems. He's a fairly young guy that I shared some non-medical interests with. He seems to be one of the very few doctors that doesn't stereotype those who've sought his help as simple drug seekers and even referred me to a couple pain management centers, though I haven't been to yet due to my aversion to doctors. In fact my pain is a lot more manageable now that my stress, depression, and anxiety have been dealt with. I still have some insomnia and night terror issues he is helping me with. I would without a doubt recommend Dr. Saini to my friends and/or their children. The only drawback is often the waiting room is full, which I simply attribute to him being a well sought out doctor and word has gotten out that this is who you need to see, his warm demeanor and attention to detail allows me to open up to him and say what's on my mind, not just answer the questions that are asked. I truly admire this man. Also his rates are entirely reasonable, I believe $150 out of pocket is the cost per session, which means with medicare you only pay $30 per visit.
Thank you Dr. Saini!
