My experience with Dr Aleem has been excellent. He is an exemplary model of professionalism and dedication to serving others, specifically the psychiatric population. He is patient and takes the time to listen and makes multiple suggestions. He involves patients in the process of getting well.
The staff is excellent, the same people have been there in the four years Ive known him....thats great in psych care. Their patient and kind and are serving a very difficult population. The acute ill psych post hospitalized and severely ill. It will take patience and time for patients to understand that a Dr. who has as many multiple duties tasks as this office and Dr. does is bound to run a little late and often be backed up. But hes definitely worth the wait. Ive never had to wait more than an hour. Hes kept me well more than any length of time for my major mental illness and out of the hospital. Im very grateful to him, his staff and all he does. !!!!!!!

I have had this psychiatrist for 13 years. He has always been professional and attentive to my needs. He immediately calls me back if I page him. This might be do to the fact that I do not page him unless it is an emergency. Other people (2 reviews) complain about the service they received. I may have waited an hour before seeing him. But that is not the norm. He has an incredible memory and can recall what medications i am on and what strengths.
I feel like i am in a partnership with him when determining my treatment path. He listens to my concerns and we come to a mutual agreement what the next step in my plan will be.
I treat him with respect and he treats me with respect back. He is by far the best psychiatrist in Atlanta.

This is my very first message. Last Thursday on my off day, I caught the bus to see my psychiatrist a little after 3:45. By the time I walked from the bus stop to the office by 4:07, the psychiatrist was getting to be way behind schedule. There were a lot of people there at the office waiting for him and other different doctors. It became severely aggravating. I asked the receptionist how many people were in front of me. She said, ""Six"". I got increasingly annoyed and aggravated. By the time 5:00 p.m. rolled around, it was time to see my therapist. My therapist even told the office (or better yet my nurse) to knock on the door, letting them know that it was time to see me. Well, 5:30 to 5:40 rolled around. And no signs of my seeing the psychiatrist! Boy, this is a lack of decent customer service. By the time I got through seeing the therapist (I cut her service a little short because I had to catch the bus), there was no one to be found. Everyone but the receptionist had gone home. I do not know what to do! Maybe it is time to switch doctors because I've had this psychiatrist for almost 7 years. It is senseless for him to be behind schedule. And it makes matter worse when I have to fight traffic from Dunwoody to College Park in the evening time just to make a trip to see him!

I was referred to Comprehensive Psychiatric Care by my Primary Care Physician for Suboxone Treatment. Suboxone is a medication the relieves withdrawal symptoms in patients who have discontinued long term opiate usage.
I have visited the office 5 times. At my first appointment, I was placed in an exam room 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment time and saw a doctor about 15 minutes after that. This was slightly annoying, but all too typical of doctors. It got progressively worse from there. The second time I did not see the doctor until 3 hours after my scheduled appointment time. The third time, I saw him 2 1/2 hours after my appointment time. The forth time was between 2 1/2 and 3 hours. The fifth time, I waited for one hour and walked out.
My visits have consisted of a nurse coming in and doing vital checks and a general ""how are you feeling"" questionnaire, which lasts 2-3 minutes. During the first visit, I spent about 10 minutes with the doctor. He asked me some background questions, wrote my prescriptions and I was done. During the next three visits the 2 minutes with the doctor each time have consisted of him asking if I was feeling 100% back to normal yet. I have said ""no"" and started to explain just to be cut-off and told that he would up my dosages and see me back in a month.
The kicker is that all over the office are signs saying that a patient will be charged for missing appointments or appointments rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice. Patients late to appointments will be rescheduled and charged for a missed appointment. They refill request number and website say that any refills requested because of missed appointments or rescheduled appointments will be charged $25.00. It is unbelievable that someone who obviously respects nobody's time but their own has the gall to post so many policies involving patients' punctuality. It has to be someone's idea of a cruel joke.
