“This was my first time seeing a psychiatrist or therapist of any kind, and Dr. Asrat made me feel extremely comfortable, took the time to listen, good sense of humor and understanding, and no rush to medicate (which I had feared). I chose her based on these other reviews and they do not lie! Highly recommended!

Mental Health

The World Health Organization defines mental health as “a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her own community”.

Mental Illness

One in four adults experience a mental health disorder in a given year, but only one-third of them will receive mental health services. Anxiety disorders, which include panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, are the most common class of mental disorders. They are generally higher in developed countries than in developing countries

Very professional and thorough in evaluation. Definitely recommended for anyone trying to make sense of hard times. Less than 3 months ago by a Verified Patient

Amazing. This was my first time seeing a psychiatrist or therapist of any kind, and Dr. Asrat made me feel extremely comfortable, took the time to listen, good sense of humor and understanding, and no rush to medicate (which I had feared). I chose her based on these other reviews and they do not lie! Highly recomended!

She’s so personable and empathetic, without being patronizing. She also does a fair deal of “real talk” that makes me feel that she’s not just telling me what I want to hear, but that she actually gets me. I wish she did regular therapy sessions too- I love talking to her. Less than 6 months ago by a Verified Patient

Dr. Asrat was very understanding and thorough in her first visit. She sat with me more than an hour and a half and seemed to genuinely want to understand my situation and my goals. What was surprising is that she was not a pill-pusher in any way, and only discussed the possibility of medication with me after I initially brought it up. Only one visit so far but looking forward to seeing where this goes!

I have been seeing Dr. Asrat for over a year now and am extremely pleased with the treatment I have received from her. Unlike other psychiatrists in NYC she has taken time to get to know my issues and explore potential treatment options, doesn’t just throw prescriptions at the issue. Less than 6 months ago by a Verified Patient

She spent an entire hour with me in order to get to the bottom of my problem (not all psychiatrists are willing to take that sort of time)

I really enjoyed meeting with Dr. Asarat. She was kind and attentive, and engaging. We talked for about 2 hours before she made her final assessment and recommendation, and we are scheduled to have a follow-up. Less than a year ago by a Verified Patient

Dr. Asrat is a good listener and easy to talk to.
