Dr. Trivedi is an angel.

Dr. Trivedi is an angel. I have struggled with anxiety and depression for over 13 years. I am in my early 20’s. I finally decided to seek professional help and I thank God I did because I found this Doctor and this practice. He made me feel so comfortable and willing to open up. It’s never an easy thing to ask for help. But he has changed my life. He helped to get me on the right prescriptions the first time around. He is so knowledgeable and willing to do anything it takes to help you. I feel like a completely new person. After all those years of dealing with tremendous struggle and pain, I now know what it feels like to be a “normal” person. Going to see Dr. Trivedi was the best thing I’ve ever done. My life is on a completely new, positive path. I am so grateful for all he has given to me and my family. I could not recommend him more.

"I feel like my SELF again."

As with all women, at a certain age we find ourselves in the “change of life”. Sometimes it comes on suddenly, sometimes it is more subtle. Mine snuck in the back door, silently, slowly and making changes so small that I didn’t even realize they were happening. What I DID realize is that my normal happy upbeat personality was being replaced with fear and anxiety! Don’t get me wrong, I am not a laid back person. I am animated and creative. I wake up easily and require little sleep. But this was different. It was fear – terror actually and nothing was really wrong….

I had no patience, I was losing my temper over the smallest things, and clearly unable to cope with the larger things. That was a huge problem as a single parent to two teenagers. My family doctor suggested medication, an idea that I detested. After a another month of misery I relented and went to see Dr. Trivedi. My experience with him has been wonderful. We decided on a very low dose of an anti-anxiety medicine, but he took it much farther than that suggesting meditation techniques and resources. I have always loved the holistic approach to health and was very comforted in knowing that he was not only supportive, but encouraging and open to many different techniques. I feel like my SELF again. My co-workers are happy to have my playful spirit back and my children are happy to have their silly and loving mother back. Ladies, please don’t wait!! Don’t suffer thru the change because you think there are no options. Please see Dr. Trivedi and get yourself on the path to wellness.”

"I made a decision that has given me new life."

t’s amazing what time can do. I think of this almost every day now after 10 years of dealing with anxiety. I sometimes question why I didn’t do something sooner, always telling myself that I had the power to deal with my issues on my own. Early in the stages that was true, but as my dealings and issues got more complex, it took a professional to help me.

I began having panic attacks when I was in college and this, morphed with mild claustrophobia, convinced me that I had something wrong with my body. Every tinge or mild pain I had led me to this conclusion as well. After receiving physicals sometimes twice per year and a constant reassurance that there was nothing wrong with my body, I managed to give myself some relief. This, however, was always only temporary. My feelings of anxiety grew from different stimulus from driving by myself (worried that something might happen to me) to stepping foot in an elevator (sometimes triggering panic). Starting in the fall of 2011, I began to regress after extensive traveling with my company for the year and all of the old feelings of anxiety began popping up, and doing so more frequently. I became depressed thinking I would never be able to control this problem. I look back today, almost 11 months after visiting Dr Trivedi for the first time, and realize that I made a decision that has given me new life. I was always the strong willed person that could control my problems head on but this was different. I was always putting a new layer on comfort over my old anxiety and never truly fixing it. When this all collapsed on me was when I decided enough was enough. Since then, with the help of Dr Trivedi’s methods for dealing with anxiety, and medication, I have challenged these discomfort zones and succeeded. I have instilled a level of confidence that brings a great deal of happiness to me. Anxiety for things I have been dealing with for 10 years has become controlled. Dr Trivedi’s understanding of dealing with the problem with managed medication as well as meditation, exercise and challenging your fears, has been incredibly healing. Yes, it takes time, but having back the future is the time that I wanted, and thanks to Dr Trivedi, I have that time now.

"I began to see things clearly and feel so much better and HAPPIER!!"

Dr. Trivedi saved my life! I had experienced depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. In my 20′s, I was put on Paxil by my primary care physician. Ten years later, I experienced a downward spiral filled with negative thoughts, was acting on negative emotions, and not taking care of my mental and emotional heath. I used to look at people and wonder why they were so happy and wonder what was wrong with me. I didn’t realize that I was sick and that the way I was thinking was not my fault.

After seeing Dr. Trivedi, I learned that years of negative thinking and not dealing with and taking responsibility for my thoughts and actions resulted in my mental breakdown. Several appointments later, with help of cognitive behavioral therapy, correct medication, and psychiatric care, I began to see things clearly and feel so much better and HAPPIER!! I never realized I could feel like this and wish that I would have gone to him sooner!!

"He listens to me and treats me with respect."

Dr.Trivedi has helped me in so many wonderful ways! Not only has he successfully figured out what medications will work for me but he did it with me at his side always putting into account how I felt. He listens to me and treats me with respect and although I’m fifteen he treats me with the maturity as if I were an adult. He has taught me to be self-aware and to believe in myself to be the most mentally healthy I can be! I adore him so much!

"I highly recommend Dr. Trivedi and his staff because they care."

I am a 59 year old male diagnosed as Bipolar and having OCD in June of 2010. Since diagnosis, I have gone to 57 appointments with my previous psychiatrist and attended 167 group and individual cognitive therapy sessions.

On February 25th I had my first appointment with Dr. Trivedi. I had completed the new patient packet, signed in at the front desk and took a seat in the reception area. Dr. Trivedi personally welcomed and directed me to his office.

After verifying personal information, he provided a brief explanation of his services and we discussed the reason for my visit. Dr. Trivedi began taking notes and drawing a simple graph of my symptoms as I described them. Twenty-five minutes later, he turned the paper so I could see and we discussed how he would treat each symptom. It all made sense. He explained how each medication works and affects the others. He gave me the graph with his notes and asked that I give them to my therapist for discussion in future therapy sessions. When I got up to leave, we shook hands and he said, “You will see a difference in how you feel by your next appointment in two weeks”, and I did. 

Thank you Dr. Trivedi for your insight that made it possible for you to understand my symptoms and provide the hope that I will be able to manage and re-wire my brain, short circuited my entire life. I highly recommend Dr. Trivedi and his staff because they care.

"Dr. Trivedi possesses extreme competency, compassion and candor."

As a patient, I had spent close to 20 years searching for solutions to manage my ADHD, anxiety and depression. I followed every doctor’s advice, lived a healthy lifestyle and was committed to my care. In retrospect, nothing was truly working and despite my best efforts I lived a restless, unfulfilling and difficult life. When I first saw Dr. Trivedi I immediately knew he cared and was willing to actively solve this problem with me. He asked questions, listened to my answers, and skillfully led me towards new treatments.

By actually listening to my experiences and making very minor adjustments, Dr. Trivedi has helped me to completely change my life! After spending my entire life anxious, sleepless and unproductive I now rise early, work hard and can focus without anxiety. It’s truly amazing. Dr. Trivedi possesses extreme competency, compassion and candor. These are rare traits in a physician, and Dr. Trivedi has them in spades. It is a pleasure to write this testimonial, and help guide others to his care. I believe you will be absolutely satisfied with the care!

"Dr Trivedi has been amazing. He is very informative and helpful and really listens to your concerns."

I just moved to Florida in January from Dallas. The psychiatrist I went to in Dallas I found after doing months and months of research. I wanted to find a doctor that wanted to help me rather than just medicate me. I was very concerned I would not find the same doctor when I moved back to Florida however, Dr Trivedi has been amazing. He is very informative and helpful and really listens to your concerns. He goes over and beyond to really find the core issue of why you are experiencing the problems you are having. I have already recommended him to my family and friends. I highly recommend Dr. Trivedi.

"I have Dr. Trivedi with his Mind, Spirit and Soul philosophy that has saved my life."

Today, while getting ready for the day I saw a different me looking back in the mirror! I never had hope or faith that things would ever change for me. I have been suffering with panic/anxiety/depression for 30 years. I have tried many medications, doctors and therapist. Sometimes were harder than others but in my late 40′s I was at my worst, adding severe paranoia and OCD to my list. I was so tired of trying to pretend that I was fine when I was dying inside. All I wanted was relief, all I wanted was out.

But, I couldn’t find a way out no matter how I tried. So, I ended up knowing there was only one way out and that was suicide-the last resort. Only for my children and grandchildren I tried again for help. I was recommended to Dr. Trivedi and from our first meeting I understood more about my illness than I ever had. Dr. Trivedi shared with me our plan of attack together one step at a time to get well. His goal for me was to enjoy life again. I trusted him. Now, one and a half years later I have accomplished way more than I ever thought, I can go anywhere and do anything and I am fine, I am happy, I am blessed. My husband is so happy to see me well again. My children are so proud of me and are amazed at the things I do now and the places I will go. For years I have prayed to God to help me be the best I was created to be in mind, spirit and soul and low and behold I have Dr. Trivedi with his Mind, Spirit and Soul philosophy that has saved my life. Coincidence? I think not.

"Just upon entering his office you can feel the serene calm peacefulness."

What a true GEM we have found hidden in Florida Medical Clinic, with Dr. Trivedi, Just upon entering his office you can feel the serene calm peacefulness that everyone craves for – and that feeling grows further as you encounter his kind and patient staff, and then is complete almost immediately when you meet him. He is patient and really listens to what you have to say. His interest is in helping you, step by step, being there and really listening to what you have to say.

On one visit we had to wait a little longer than normal to see him, only to find out that he was running late due a patient having a crisis –that is not only the kind of doctor everyone wants – but the wonderful type of people everyone wants to be surrounded by.

"I thank Dr. Trivedi from the bottom of my heart for his
expertise."

I can not believe how if feel now. I’ve been depressed for about 20 years. Now in my late 40′s I started feeling a lot of anxiety and did know what was going on with me. My therapist referred me to Dr. Trivedi and I was so skeptical about seeing him because I knew he was going to give me medication that was going to make me have all kinds of side affects and that it was going to be on medication after medication to find what is right for me and then to get addicted.

I thought it was going to be a nightmare. He spoke to me very sincerely about the medicine that he will prescribe and that it was not addictive and was going to make me feel like I should be feeling (not depressed and anxious) It wasn’t long at all before I started feeling better. I feel so much better than before. I can think clearly and do things that I never done before. I thank Dr. Trivedi from the bottom of my heart for his expertise.
