Having had the worst psychiatrist in Louisville (Charles Bensenhaver...stay FAR away from him), I know that Dr. El-Mallakh is the best psychiatrist in Louisivlle. He spends time with you and listens, his bedside manner cannot be beat. You will find no one better with medications to balance the chemicals in your brain. He really knows his stuff!

25 years have now elapsed since my first psychiatric experience. It took an astonishing 18 years to get the correct BP diagnosis. I have been on a journey to find the right meds to live a reasonable life. Starting seeing Dr. El-Mallakh two months ago. He spent an incredible HOUR gathering information, giving me treatment options, information, reliable feedback. I am so grateful to his clinic. Yes, one will have to wait, sometimes hours. But that is a miniscule price to pay to get quality treatment and care.

Dr. El-Mallakh just cannot be topped. His knowledge of medications and the way it works in the brain is beyond compare. He is one of the kindest doctors I have ever met (and I have numerous health problems besides bipolar disorder) and spends time with you and does not rush through your appointment. I highly recommed him as a psychiatrist!! p.s. the wait time can sometimes be long, but he is worth every minute of the time you spend in the waiting room.
