Family Member Quote
“Dr. Minhas is a very impressive and knowledgeable psychiatrist. He has a good bedside manner and answered all our questions with clear, concise answers. He takes a conservative approach to treatment and showed good judgement in treating our daughter. He is the first psychiatrist who clearly explained to me why it had been so difficult to diagnose my daughter, that it is challenging to distinguish her substance abuse symptoms from her psychiatric symptoms. My daughter’s psychologist has high regard for Dr. Minhas as well, stating ‘I love Dr. Minhas.'”
