Face to face consultation
- A personal meeting with the patient and family/friends is useful for initial assessment and diagnosis
TeleConsultation (via video call, phone, mail or chat)
- If you or the patient is unable to come to the clinic for a face to face consultation, there are several options that can be used.
- The best option is to do video consultation via Skype (ID: manpsych75), Zoom or Whatsapp (8587970897).
- If bandwidth is a problem/video is not clear, we can do an audio consultation as well.
- If you prefer to be anonymous then you can consult via email as well.
- Any advise given in these situations is dependant on the information that is provided. Such a consultation and the resultant advise may not be helpful in an emergency.
- The teleconsultation guidelines of India restrict the number and type of medicines we can prescribe when a patient teleconsults for the first time (or six months after the last face to face consultation.)
- Payment in these situations has to be made in advance via ‘Paytm’, bank transfer or the payment options on this website.
- Once a diagnosis has been established, a treatment plan is decided and agreed
Marital Therapy/Relationship Counseling
- People in a relation going through a rough patch need to be able to express the pain, frustration or anxiety that they are going through.
- We provide a safe, secure, comfortable and confidential setting, led by an experienced and qualified psychotherapist.
- Therapy is provided in 50 min – 1 hr sessions, which should preferably be prebooked outside normal working hours. Charges vary.
- Regular follow up is important when dealing with mental health problems.
- Whether it is further consultations, phone calls or email support, it is essential that the patient and psychiatrist monitor how effective the treatment is and what, if any, changes need to be implemented.
Inpatient assessment and treatment
- Patients suffering from depression, psychosis, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, suicidal intent, dependence on substances like alcohol, opioids or alcohol etc; can be admitted to a private hospital.
- The patient should have some degree of agreement to stay in the hospital.
- We do not offer involuntary admission i.e admission to patients who do not have any willingness to be admitted.
- In cases of emergency, we can assess and evalute the condition of a person suffering from severe mental illness, and if required refer, guide and facilitate transfer and admission to a licenced psychiatric hospital.
- If you have been under treatment for mental health problems and are looking for a second opinion, please feel free to contact Dr Maneesh Gupta. It is essential though that you have most, if not all details of the treatments you have had.
- Second opinion may be required for a court report or medical negligence claims. (Extra charges will apply)
- Courts in India are often seeking detailed assessment and evalution reports from qualified and experienced psychiatrists of the emotional condition of one of the plaintiffs.
- These reports are essential in cases of child custody battles for the court to understand what arrangements would suit the young person’s behavioural, emotional and developmental needs.
- In some criminal cases, especially those related to murder, manslaughter or homicide, an evalution of the defendants mental condition related to his capacity to stand trial is important.
- In some circumstances, a person accused of a crime, who was under the treatment of a mental health professional may also need a report from an independent psychiatrist to advice the court on whether the psychiatric condition influences the liability/punishment of the alleged crime.
- In cases of domestic violence, crime against women or divorce, courts can be moved by a report from a psychiatrist on the possibility of the couple being able to live/thrive together OR on the possible emotional consequences on both parties if a separation were to be allowed/to be ordered.
- Dr. Gupta is also keen to work with social organisations to study the impact of police brutality on marginalised and disempowered communities.
