He was the worse DR on the face of the planet I have ever went to. He had me on 6 different meds at one time. I was not able to function, work or do anything. This guy is awful. I think he tries to get you hooked on the pills to keep you coming back. He has no real concern for the patient. If you value your health, stay away from him.

Dr Laldawala is a dangerous, uncaring psych dr. He put me on very heavy dosage of klonopin for anxiety, then when I dev an alcohol problem and got help spending 2 months in an inpt rehab ( still sober btw. this happened 3 years ago) When I saw him after rehab his attitude completely changed, now I was a DRUG SEEKER lookin to get high, I have an 18 yr documented battle with panic/anxiety and depression and he disregarded that. He made me feel like garbage for GETTING HELP!!! HELLO!!! He told me to go to an AA meeting and I will feel better. He's a dangerous dr , AVOID AT ALL COSTS PLEASE!!!!!

Wow, it is amazing this man is still around... In 1999, I was treated by him while hospitalized at Charter in Tampa; I was diagnosed with major depression w/suicidal ideations and an anxiety disorder. He prescribed Zoloft and Xanax.

In 2007, I had a relapse so massive that I knew it was time to go back...thinking that I had had the same diagnoses....now it is 2009 and I am not any better and back to where I was in 1999. I think now, I am a rapid-cycle bipolar which explains why I never felt like I got any better...I also have an eating disorder and use self injury; my husband just learned of the self injury last night....up til now, I've been able to hid most of it...I typically scratch enough to feel better, but last night during a manic state, I was crying and found myself digging into my leg harder than ever, now I can't hide my bruises...I typically bite the inside of my mouth and scratch places that can be conceled like my scalp......or something that I can blame rather easily...now I am screwed... I been doing a lot of online research and learned that bipolar typically is misdiagnosed as depression... Thanks Dr L. for taking the time to really learn you patients. Looking back, he didn't really ask a lot of questions. It was more like I was a number and it didn't matter what he prescribed me...he was safe because I was just like the other wack jobs in that place. Really not, I remember bonding with some other ppl that I, ironically worked with...some w/eating disorders and depression, others, just w/depresssion...and we all sat around saying, I am not as crazy as these people, who heard voices, or just acted like they were psyco...maybe now I can get better, despite me losing my job...yup, I'm in the miltary and it is an automatic MEB...well maybe it is better to be MEB'd at 16+ yrs than at 7 yrs...at least I'll get severants pay at a minimum...

He misdiagnosed me with generalized anxiety disorder and prescribed me Zoloft and seroquil for my insomnia. The Zoloft made me jittery and bounce off the walls like I had so much energy that I couldn't contain it all. The seroquil gave me seizures on the left side of my body. I told him of my concerns and he wrote it off as if I was lying to him about the side effects I was having. Since then I switched to Dr. Hussein, whom I have to say is far more personable and actually wishes to help his patients. I was diagnosed correctly this time with Bipolar spectrum disorder and borderline personality disorder. All the symptoms fit. If Dr. Lakdawala had taken the time to listen to all my symptoms I wouldn't have had to go through withdrawal symptoms from seroquil and Zoloft. Now I'm on Lamctil and Abilify and feel more even. I will never go back to Dr. Lakdawala and advice anyone that sees him to change doctors asap, he's in the profession of making money, not helping others.

Frankly I don't understand how this man is a psychiatrist. He and his office staff were terribly rude and unsupportive. He has treated my mother for dementia, mostly pushing expensive drug samples that will not be covered by her drug plan. I also tried to arrange for family leave so I could care for my mother since my dad is having difficulty and he absolutely refused to provide documentation of her dianosis (federal form), clearly expressing a lack of knowledge of family leave policy for such conditions.

Went to see the doctor for a few months. He was not believing anything I said about my problems and assumed that I was lying. He just pushed meds at me, spent fifteen minutes each session, and just told me what to take and when. Needless to say, his program didn't work. I left for good.

PROS: None whatsoever. Playing lotto with meds.
CONS: Required to see and pay him once a month

I met with Dr. Lakdawala at an inpatient facility. I felt like he was kind of cold and presumtuous ("It doesn't matter if you don't want to talk to me; I can tell how you are by your face." before even being given an opportunity to speak, which i was more than willing to do.). It just seemed like he was trying to get through as many patients as possible and didn't really care that much. He also prescribed antidepressants for me, even though I was under 18 and obviously needed therapy, not drugs. Definitely not my top choice for a psychiatrist.
