I was on medical leave from my employer and was referred to a psychiatrist by my primary care physician. Dr. Choksi extended the medical leave. During the third visit, I was experiencing side effects from the meds and he realized that the diagnosis was incorrect and he change the prescription. Although he has a sign in the waiting room stating that he will complete paperwork, the next week, he refused to complete the one-page document for my employer. Since he is the doctor who extended the medical leave, I am now facing losing my job because I don't have the completed form. His assistant stated that he "fills out forms for some patients." I don't recommend this doctor.
I saw Dr. Choksi for my first time and was sort of impressed. He did listen, but seemed to be in a hurry. I wanted to ask him about other possibilities of anti-depressants but he was stuck on the two things he wanted me to take.
I then had to call him a couple weeks later due to having a procedure done where I couldn't start the anti-depressant when he prescribed it for me. I also questioned him about taking one of the two medications he prescribed and did I have to take both of them, as that one really put weight on you. He proceeded to tell me, in a not very nice tone, that he didn't have time to discuss things like this on the phone and to take what he prescribed for me. He was so rude, I couldn't believe it and I spoke very nicely to him and only was on the phone 5 minutes, but that was to much time for him. I won't be going back as I won't be spoken like that by a doctor who acts like he is God.
Saw him in the Hospital. He is extremely rude! Doesn't understand the definition of bedside manner. Do not go to Dr. Choksi. His awards have gotten to his head. He rushes you through your appointmentment and doesn't let you explain yourself at all. He gave me the run around and lied to me about my treatment. I think he's a workaholic and is taking on way too many patients. Good luck if you see him and God Bless!
