LINDSAY N. | Apr 07, 2023

My wife has been to 3 different psychiatrists before. We finally found someone that listened to her and added a small dose of a previously unprescribed medication that seems to be helping. She has finally found a friend that she feels is going to get her through her illness. Thank You and we loved our first office visit. It was on time and a great experience.

BHARATI S. | Apr 01, 2023

The doctor is patient and sharp. But it is difficult to make appointment in 2 weeks.

ELIZABETH "ASTER" J. | Mar 30, 2023

Am new to the practice, but so far it's been great. Dr. Sathpathy seems very kind and easy to talk to, as does everyone else i've interacted with. They've all been patient and extremely helpful. The operation also seems to be efficient and well-run.

C S. | Mar 10, 2023

He listened to my needs, understood my history, I didn’t feel judged, I felt that he had my best interest in mind. He went as far as putting in a referral for a treatment plan that other psychiatrists denied unless i tried more extreme antidepressants, when denied trying 7th or 8th different medication, I ended up having to pay out of packet for the treatment I felt worked the best for me. I felt that he actively listened and wants to give me the best possible outcome.

REBECCA G. | Mar 06, 2023

We proudly accept Tricare and are located near Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
TMS is a groundbreaking treatment for Depression that uses MRI technology to restore the limited neuronal activity of a depressed brain. It is FDA-approved, non-invasive, covered by insurance providers, and virtually free of side effects.
TMS is highly effective for patients with tough-to-treat depression. Over half of patients respond to TMS and more than one-third achieve remission. This is remarkable news for those who have tried multiple treatments without hope of getting better.


We accept most insurance providers. If you have specific questions regarding your coverage, please contact us for additional information.
