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.

Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school.

Dr. Bhalla was the worst psychiatrist I ever met. Within 5 minutes of meeting me he called me a train wreck. I went to him for support and was feeling depressed. I left feeling much worse. He had nothing to offer me but negativity. He diagnosed me wrong as well. This doctor needs help. Thank goodness I found someone else to help me who is much more professional and a better doctor who accurately diagnosed me, describing symptoms that I feel are very much me. If you want a professional who is compassionate avoid Dr. Bhalla.
Arrogant, blunt, laughs constantly at his own jokes, types frantically while no interaction or conversation is going on to make notes on, books next appointment, updates Meds and you are out of there. Talk about a quickie! If you are looking for a doctor who spends time with you, treats you with respect, has any interest in you except the 10 minutes you are in the office- look elsewhere. He also puts down his colleagues and curses frequently. There is no other staff so if you can't reach him directly you are out of luck. He seems to be a one man show. He also answers his phone during appointments.
Finally and Excellent loving caring doctor who takes his time and doesn't make you feel rushed. Thank You Dr. Bhalla for making me feel whole again, hoping you can inspire other people you meet to feel the same. I can not thank you enough for all your help sorting my life and my feelings out, NEVER hold grudges or say hurtful things because in the end they will come back to you ten fold, best advise ever!
Dr. Bhalla is nothing short of the most unprofessional human being I have ever met. I called him out of concern for my children who had an appointment with him that their father made and never told them about. I called as a concerned parent because my oldest daughter was having a panic attack on her way to his office. He told me and I quote, " I do not have time for you, I am seeing the father and the daughters, hang up, call back and leave me a message." Only after my daughter refused to get out of her father's car and walk in his office did he call me back threatening me to use my influence on my daughter or else..... This man is a vile ugly man.
Dr. Bhalla threatened me to get me to force my daughter to speak with him. He is unprofessional, unethical, rude and pushy. He is a medical Dr. That has no business treating children. He cursed to my daughter several times during her visit. He should be banned from treating anyone psychologically. He is being reported to the medical board.
