Dr. Mona A Alvi has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

We experienced Dr. Alvi through UBH Denton. She was inarticulate, distracted and seemed to have spent a very minimal amount of time with our son. She mainly just read the notes from the admitting doctor. Avoid Dr. Alvi and UBH at all costs. We tried to get our son released early from UBH, after the counseling sessions were clearly not happening as described (the children spent most of their time in front of of the TV). We were threatened by her and UBH that they would delay the planned release for no reason other than they could or it wasn't convenient for them. No medical justification was given. As many other former patients and families have described, UBH seems more intent on maximizing fees than providing quality care for patients. I wonder if Dr. Alvi receives extra fees for keeping patients at UBH longer??
I read the reviews, then went to appt. I do not understand why ratings so low, Dr Alvi took time to answer all questions, review all material, and all medications. I can only guess that the negative reviews are from patients who did not like what they heard. Dr Alvi, in my experience, is very up to date on latest treatments, questions and verifies all diagnosis not confirmed by herself, spends adequate time to establish trust, and shows great respect to her patients. I can recommend Dr Alvi without any reservations.
I was referred to her and had to wait 3 months to see her. So I thought that since I had to wait so long that she must have been a great doctor. This is my first impression of her. She has no bedside manners. She lacks knowledge when it comes to medications (I've been in the Pharmacy business for 18 years). Within seconds of sitting down to start the appointment her cell phone rings and she answered it! Not only is that rude but a true violation of the HIPAA government law. While she was on the phone, I was able to hear everything she said...and I mean everything. I knew the patients full name and date of birth, what medications he was on, which pharmacy he used, what the dosage was etc.... She had no empathy what so ever. Her mentality was "It's my way or the highway". Not to mention she doesn't listen at ALL. I had to repeat myself a dozen times because she didn't listen the first time I spoke. I do not recommend going to her. Don't waste your time and money.
