Amazing place. The staff here is excellent. Needed an appointment on short notice and BG and Caroline were extremely helpful in setting it up as soon as possible. Doctor Keeling even worked outside of her normal schedule to meet with me and I truly appreciate it. I highly recommend Savant Care.

We have consulted with Dr. Vidushi Savant about once a month for treatment of our Bipolar I condition since April 2016, and are consistently impressed by her quality of care. (We are plural, meaning multiple personalities, and usually speak using plu...ral pronouns.) Dr. Savant is whip smart, thinks creatively outside of the box while remaining grounded in scientific method, and knows her pharmacology. Of central importance to us, given these qualities, is that she can handle our idiosyncratic hypersensitivity to and intolerance of medications that has baffled all of our many previous psychiatrists, makes us difficult to treat, and in her words, her most "clinically challenging" patient. Dr. Savant is the first psychiatrist who has been able to ascertain what, when, and how much to prescribe to us. If we were an easy to treat patient, a bi-monthly office consult would suffice, with little communication in between. As is the case, Dr. Savant periodically extends herself to us to a considerable degree between monthly office appointments, using her clinic's Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) compliant (i.e. confidential) patient web portal, through which patients can message their doctors and receive replies, and also upload and download documents. On this note, she is keen to maintain continuity of care with our other clinicians, so she reviews labs ordered by them that we upload, as they might be relevant to her prescribing. For our part, we try to keep our portal comments succinct, especially if we are manic or hypomanic and thus prone to more "pressure of speech" styled verbosity than we normally are. As the French philosopher and scientist Blaise Pascal said, "I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter." Also, Dr. Savant respectfully collaborates with us rather than copping the "doctor knows best" attitude that many physicians take toward their patients. One disadvantage of her SavantCare clinic for us is that it does not have an after hours psychiatrist on call. But the average psychiatric patient whose body does not totally flip from medications like ours does will not have a problem with this. Dr. Savant aside, the only downside to the SavantCare *clinic* is that it relies on high-tech that often fails. Some aspect of the above noted web portal is on the fritz about 5% of the time. The clinic's Android phone app never worked on our Android phone even though the phone's operating system was compatible, and the iPhone app only partly works. The self-service vitals machine in the lobby, which records one's weight, body mass, temperature, blood pressure, etc., is usually out of paper, so one cannot get a printout, and there is no way to access the data in one's clinic account. The iPad app in the lobby that patients use to sign in has rarely worked in the past three years. But while these constant tech glitches are annoying, we deal with them, given that we are getting excellent care from Dr. Savant. Last, chronic negative reviewer Kathryn B. is grasping at straws. In her updated April 10 review she winges, "The recent article in the Los Altos Town Crier ("Local psychiatrist claims bogus city award on employer website" 04/03/19) about fake awards being posted for Dr. Parikh (who is the doctor I saw), once again illustrates the unethical behavior of Savant Care." However, the Town Crier updated their article on April 10 to indicate that SavantCare had, like many other businesses, fallen victim to a nationwide scam in which fraudsters convince businesses that they have been voted the "best of" whatever city they are doing business in, and can buy a plaque saying so for $149 to $229 [1]. The updated Town Crier article includes the fraudster's awardedbest.org web address, and a link to a Better Business Bureau article, "Award Scam A Big Loser," warning business about the scam [2]. Some people like Kathryn just have an axe to grind. [1] losaltosonline.com/news/… [2] bbb.org/northwest-pacifi…

As many of you know, finding a mental health clinic and schedule an appointment is very difficult. I was very pleasantly surprised that BG and Caroline in the intake dept. make this process so easy and enjoyable. BG even took into the next step and followed up my call to the clinic. I also wanted to say that I feel that this clinic and its employees carry and run themselves in a very professional/helpful manner. Looking forward to seeing Dr. Sorensen.

My daughter has been to Savant Care for over a year and half. She is happy with both the psychiatrist Dr. Keeling - although it would be nice to schedule an appointment easier, and the therapist Jennifer Gilman. My daughter went to a different therapist somewhere else for quite a while, but I did not believe she has been helpful. My daughter has been very happy with Jennifer Gilman ever since we had the change, definitely prefer Jennifer over the therapist from another practice.

My wife was actually seeing the doctors here, she had a really good experience with the care provided. This review is regarding the billing practices and refund policies. We changed insurance mid year and my wife did not know the exact dates. I perso...nally reached out to Scott in billing and he was able to refile the claim to the new insurance company in time. Also the refund was quickly processed but added to internal credit. Reached out to Scott again to get a check in the mail, but he suggested a wire transfer which was quicker and better than receiving a check in the mail. Quick resolution and great customer service, exceeded my expectations. Thanks Scott.

This review is regarding the intake process I had with BG, a very patient and polite man. We went through some health insurance questions and where I would like to see my Psychiatrist (he has a couple locations) based on the proximity from my home. Then, a couple of texts back and forth, and a signature on the website and I was approved for an appointment in TWO days! Very easy and to the point, as it should be! I haven't been seen by the Doctor yet but that will be a separate review, if needed. But, as far as the intake process goes, BG gets 5 stars!!!

Caroline was amazing at coordinating my intake and first appointment as a new patient. It felt seamless and extremely smooth with her help! Would recommend SavantCare and Caroline specifically!

When we reached out for a fresh intake appointment, BG from the intake team was very helpful. He proactively track of waitlist and cancellations and provided an earlier appointment than originally scheduled. He is also very proactive in helping with the follow-up appointments

I have an awesome experience with Dr Keeling she is a well manner and compassionate Dr I only had 3 sessions with her and I feeling Im heading in the right path, thank you also to Paul and Richard awesome guys always ready to give a hand

Dr Sorensen is excellent and has helped me with my anxiety and depression. I’ve never had this level of service and dedication. It has saved my job and changed my life. I highly recommend him. It takes a while to get an appointment but it’s worth the wait. Beth in San Jose

Savant Care does an amazing job of taking the administrative pain out of mental health care, which makes things easier on the patients and also seems like a big help to the clinicians. I've been impressed with the doctors I've worked with and with the responsiveness of the admin team. Highly recommended!

Love love love the care I’ve received here!!! Dr Sorensen is an outstanding psychiatrist and very helpful. Love this place!!

I just recently moved from Texas to California, and was having the most difficult time finding a psychiatrist until working with BG at Savant Care. BG listened to my concerns and truly empathized with my situation. He went above and beyond to make sure I found a doctor who was local and met my needs. He is valuable member of the Savant Care team and should be recognized! Still have not seen Dr. Keeling yet, but if she is anything like her staff then the experience will be excellent.

Coming to Savant Care was the best decision I could have made. Dr. Mehta really goes the extra mile and is truly amazing at what she does. She's caring, understanding, helpful, yet professional and firmly stands her ground on recommendations and solu...tions when needed with patients best interest in mind. I went to Dr. Mehta during one of the hardest periods of my life. And at a time where I truly thought I wasn't capable of making it out, she supported and encouraged me to feel more than capable and still continues to do so. I can honestly say that In a sense she saved my life. Additionally, Savant Care Admins, Stephanie and Amy are awesome, especially under pressure which they have encountered from me one time or another. They have always continued to remain understanding, responsive, professional, and extremely helpful which I greatly appreciate!

I have been seeing Dr. Savant for close to two years. She has provided excellent care in all respects. She is caring and compassionate and also knowledgeable in regards to new medications and interactions between medications. I also saw Dr. Emaya Anb...alagan on two occasions and was equally impressed with the quality of her care. The only negative experience I've had with the practice was a minor technology glitch but Savant Care acknowledged the problem and worked to resolve it quickly. I've seen other psychiatrists in the past and in comparison, the care I've received from Dr. Savant is far superior. She has made a significant impact on my life.

So glad I found this place. It was very hard for me to find a practice that took both my insurance, new patients, and could assess for the condition I was concerned about. Dr. Keeling is efficient, competent, and well-versed in the latest research. Her assistant Richard is incredible at finding the right appointment times, helping get sooner appointments, and assisting with any issues with prescription orders. I am very grateful to them for all the work they do continually to help me.

Savant Care has definitely helped me in turning my life around. Dr. Sorensen is very helpful and informative with whatever issues or questions I may have, and makes sure that things are always flowing smoothly in terms of my mental and physical health. And on top of that is his assistant, Austin. Austin is always quick to help; to go the extra mile to make sure that problems of any sort are resolved. I highly recommend Savant Care and their incredible staff!

I've received an abundant service of support from Dr Parikh and SavantCare. Parikh is efficient with treatment plans, offering kind and genuine support with my struggles. Regardless of the circumstances, Parikh is flexible and tries her best to accommodate to your health needs. Service management is also very helpful, as they are quick to responding to phone calls, medication refill, and appointment updates/reminders!

When I had a mental health care issue I needed help for, this was the only psychiatric practice near me taking patients in the next 3 months. I called EVERYWHERE, and no one else could fit me in the schedule or deal with my specific issue.Savantcare ...scheduled me within one month and worked hard to get me seen sooner than that upon request. I am so grateful for them being able to see me so promptly. My psychiatrist is an excellent fit. She is well-versed in recent developments in the field, and is able to discuss her recommendations in a way I understand. She also makes sure that she and I are making decisions together. I am comfortable with my treatment plan and feel able to raise concerns if I have any.we problem solve together. The support staff are beyond excellent at returning phone calls, emails, etc and taking care of any urgent issues IMMEDIATELY. I would highly recommend this practice.

My experience with Dr. Keeling has been great. The first appointment I had with her was 90 minutes, and she asked lots of questions about my background and mental health history. I've never worked with such an attentive psychiatrist, and she quickly ...put me at ease. She welcomes questions and is always willing to explain her reasoning behind decisions about medication or diagnoses. Dr. Keeling's assistant, Richard, is also great to work with. Whether it's a question about scheduling appointments, an issue I need to have addressed by the doctor, or a last minute refill request, he's always on top of things and quick to get back to me.

I have been seeing Dr. Marta Keeling for over a year and I have never had a negative experience. She is patient, supportive, and knowledgeable. The service is efficient and professional. Richard, the doctor assistant, has helped me greatly. As a college student, I am not always able to meet or be in contact but they are extremely flexible which makes my life easier. I am thankful I have both of their support!

Savant Care is a noteworthy mental health program that works very hard to take care of their patients. I noticed my symptoms reduce while i have been in their care and much like my psyquiatrist.

Dr. Sonia Parikh is the best thing that has happened to me since I walked in to see her in 2016. She is professional, sincere, easy to talk to, on-time, and truly listens to what your concerns are. She offers the best advise regarding medications and.../or alternate treatments, i.e. meditations, health awareness, diet, etc......she was always my cheerleader when I had discovered something that was working for me to better my physical health, because that can only better my mental state along with it. The only downside is for me right now, because she has moved from Los Altos to Redondo Beach and unfortunately my insurance won't cover "Virtual Counseling"! none of this is the fault of Savant Care. They have been very considerate in trying to make a connection for me with a different counselor, a work still in progress. If you are in the Los Angeles area and are lucky enough to be able to get in to see her, you won't be disappointed!

The admins at SavantCare (especially Seth & Caroline are outstanding: patient, attentive, prompt, kind, thoroughly respectful and informed, choice of Bay Area locations and a plus —they take Medicare

Dr. Sorensen is the ideal balance of educated, progressive (informed about the latest perspectives on mental health treatment), and most importantly, caring and compassionate. At first he seems a bit reserved, but after getting to know him I truly fe...el he cares about patients and their outcomes. The services provided by his team of administrative staff (Adrian, for example) for things such as appointment scheduling and refill requests are far superior to the norm in this area. I feel extremely fortunate I found such a competent, caring, and effective place to work on my own personal growth and happiness.

Dr. Mehta has provided me with the care and services that I need to be successful in both my career and personal life. She is very attentive and patient, which makes for a welcoming environment. Since our first appointment, Dr. Mehta has made me feel... comfortable and helped me understand my experience is nothing to be ashamed of. I've been seeing Dr. Mehta for a few months now, and feel like a completely different, and better, person. I finally feel in control of my own life. Additionally, Dr. Mehta's administrative assistant, Stephanie, has been nothing short of outstanding. Her thoughtful demeanor in tandem with her quick responses to my questions and requests serve to make me feel like an individual rather than a patient. Because of my experience with Dr. Mehta, and Stephanie, I can't imagine seeking services from anyone else but Savant Care.

When it comes to my personal health I'm always hesitant to get a second opinion. It took a lot for me to book my initial consult with Dr. Sorensen and I only wished that I had done it sooner. Dr. Sorensen is a great listener, patient and takes his ti...me. I never felt rushed during my session nor did I feel like I was being judged. I can't even begin to express how relieved I feel since finding SavantCare as I know I'm in the absolute best hands. Also, a huge thank you to Austin, Dr. Sorensen's assistant for calmly handling my difficult insurance situation and for following up with me frequently.

Dr. Sorensen is so smart. I feel like I am finally in good hands. He knows medications so well! When you go into the office you will see how modern and technologically advanced everything is. I was impressed from the first time I stepped through the door. I plan on keeping Dr. Sorensen and have no desire to change. He is honestly such a good find. Young enough to not be stuck in old ways and yet experienced enough to be so savvy about all of the newest medications. Go see Dr. Sorensen! PS Special thanks to Austin, Dr. Sorensen's assistant. He is awesome too!!

I truly love Savant Care because I feel that both the doctors and staff go above and beyond to help me when needed. I recently switched jobs and had two network choices for insurance, and chose the one that ensured that I could stay with Savant Care,... even though my PCP wasn't covered under the same network. I chose to switch my PCP so I could stay with Dr. Sorensen- he's kind, helpful and takes the time to make sure I'm getting the correct care. Additionally, I'd like to mention that his assistant, Austin, is without a doubt the best out there! Austin has an incredible turnaround time and will always help you whenever he can. I highly recommend Savant Care and Dr. Sorensen.

Dr. Sorensen and his support team continue to provide two valuable talents - excellent listening skills and compassion. Austen, Adrian and Patrick treat you as if you are the most important person. Dr. Sorensen has done an outstanding job during my course of care. He is a marvel when it comes to fine-tuning medications. My hope is that anyone who has personal issues contact his office. You owe it to yourself!

I have been to Dr Sorenson for a few times and he has been professional and understands my situation. He's been very helpful his assistant Austin has been helpful too. I always get texts or emails for the confirmations for my appointments. Dr Sorenson will make sure I get help Incase he's not available. Would definitely recommend Dr Sorenson.

I have been working with Dr. Christopher Sorenson and his assistants, especially Austin, for about a year now and am so pleased with the doctor and the prompt assistance when I need it. I get immediate help when I need it. I highly recommend this clinic and will recommend it to friends.

I have seen Dr. Sorensen for more than a year if I remember correctly. He has been very helpful when it comes to ADHD management. He has been very informative when it comes to explaining the medications. He has been very open to experimenting with di...fferent combinations and dosages of medications. To me, a psychiatrist who is willing to do all of the above is good enough. Shout out to Adrian and BG, Dr. Sorensen's assistants. They have been very responsive, efficient and helpful to me. Post a request online and they will be responding on the same day, if not the second day. Call them and he will be always patient and delightful. If you miss their calls (which I often do, let us just blame ADHD), they surely will leave you a voice message as well as an Email to clearly convey their message. Can't ask for anything more than that. Austin, also Dr. Sorensen's assistant, has been helping me recently as well. I needed medication dosage adjustment in between appointments and it required a lot of communication. Plus I just moved and changed pharmacy. As a result, back and forth I made a lot of phone calls to Austin, and he has been very helpful all along. And that is all I need as a patient.

This clinic is very well located in Los Altos and easy to find. Moreover, it is one of the few clinics that accepts Medicare patients. The initial appointment with Dr. Sorensen went very well. we reviewed past and future needs and concerns. I told him that I was looking at other providers as well and he was very open to this. Eventually I decided to go with a PAMF doctor as the rest of my care is through them.

She was very down to earth and pleasant. Her suggestions were great!

I am a patient of Dr. Savant for over two years now and have nothing but good words about her and her staff. She is one of the most polite and down to earth doctor I have ever come across. She is a great listener too. My life has changed in these two... years and I give credit for that too Dr. Savant. She has made me to learn thinking about things from a different perspective. I am now a mother and she is helping me a lot dealing with that as well. I can keep writing all day about her. LOL. Dear Dr. Savant, you are a blessing to many in the community. Thank you for the great work you and your team are doing. I am with you in your mission!

So far for visiting her for only one time, she seemed very knowledgeable and thorough. Looking forward to the next appt.

Dr, Marita Keeling is an excellent psychiatrist. She has tonnes of experience and has been in practice for well over 30 years and that reflects in the level of care she provides to her patients. I have been very impressed with my doctor and Savant Care. Very helpful support staff! Highly recommend!

Marita Keeling reminds me of my grandmother. She is always so sweet and kind, and has a really great bedside manner! I feel really comfortable talking with her about my recent depressive episodes, and feel as if she truly cares about me and my well being. It has been 6 months, and I am on my way towards a better life thanks to her.

Dr. Savant is exceptional at what she does - compassionate, dedicated, committed to improving the lives and wellbeing of her patients. She listens and really care. Provides excellent input without being judgmental or preachy. Also very highly knowledgeable about psychopharmacology, particularly as it pertains to those with medical co-morbidities. Her staff is also great, very responsive and professional. Highly recommend.

I have seen a few psychiatrists in the past but I must say she is one of the smartest and most skilled I have ever met. I have a history of ADHD. She has helped me find the right mix of medications to help me function so much better in my day to day life. I find her extremely easy to talk to about any of my mental issues. I attribute my now-strong mental health to her care, and would recommend her to anyone seeking mental health care in the area Thank you, Dr. Mehta, you have certainly made a difference!

I would like to give her 10 stars out of the 5 zocdoc has! Yes!! Mental illness does not make life easy, especially the stigma that surrounds it. After visiting several psychiatrists and taking numerous medications that never really worked for me, I finally found her. I have been suffering from depression for quite some time and was in a total mess when I first met her. This is my third month under her care and I can certainly say, things have changed for me - life seems to be very different & beautiful. Dr. Alison has been a god send for me. I wish I had found her sooner!

It was simply amazing, she was courteous always smiling and made me feel completely at ease!

Amazing!!!

Thank god for brilliant physicians like Dr. Savant.

Very professional, kind and considerate.

Dr Savant was both knowledgeable and professional. She was very thorough, taking the time to listen to my history and my concerns. She explained different treatment options and the pros and con's of each so that I could make an informed decision. I can tell that she genuinely cares about her patients and wants what's best for their long term health and well-being. She also worked with me to schedule my appointment so that it worked with my schedule and reached out to me personally to confirm. I highly recommend this doctor and her practice.

Dr. Mehta is a thoughtful and knowledgeable doctor. She has always given me her full attention during our two sessions. I was amazed how she made me comfortable and carved out a treatment plan. I can already feel the change in me. Her office staff is also very caring. I highly recommend Dr. Mehta and her office!

I recently turned 30 years old and have had a particularly difficult time. I usually am a very positive, optimistic person however this birthday has sent me into a bit of depression. I talked to my family about how I have been feeling and they sugg...ested the possibility of a psychiatrist. I had never been to one before and didn't realize how difficult it would be to find a doctor that accepted my insurance (Aetna). I was unable to find anything I was satisfied with nearby in my hometown of Fremont so I widened my search to other cities. I finally discovered Savant Care, who accepted my insurance and called to discuss my situation. I was a little nervous but was pleasantly surprised by the members of staff that helped walk me through the process with genuine care. Although I had to travel to Los Altos, Dr. Savant made me very pleased with my decision. She was able to put things in perspective and was appreciative that he didn't immediately resort to meds and making me a regular patient. I did not feel rushed or like I was being diagnosed before getting to know me and my situation. In the end, I couldn't be more happy with how everything went. I never thought I would see a psychiatrist but after my experience and the results I have seen in my mood and attitude, I wouldn't change a thing. On a side note there is no elevator available so anyone who has trouble climbing stairs might run into an issue.

I had an excellent appointment at the Los Altos location with Dr. Alison Mehta. She was very helpful in addressing my treatment needs after going through my previous psych history. Her office staff is also very responsive. Highly recommend!

I was a bit nervous about my initial conversation with a provider, but Dr. Savant immediately put me right at ease. She has many years experience and it really shows both in her compassion and in her wealth of knowledge around treatment options. What... I like the most about Dr. Savant's approach is her focus on holistic assessment and treatment options. She seriously doesn't operate on any assumptions and doesn't take things for granted. This helped win my trust because I felt treated like a unique individual with options tailored to my needs and experiences. We covered topics like diet, exercise habits and sleep routine, which some providers completely overlook. Expect that the team at the Savant Care Clinic will work collaboratively around your care, so you may end up working with multiple providers. A big plus with them is that they've developed their own healthcare app to help guide and track the progress of your treatment, something I hadn't encountered before in a formal healthcare setting.

I have one word for my psychiatrist, Dr. Alison Mehta - AWESOME! She is very attentive and knowledgeable. Very determined to help with issues and comes across as a true professional! Thank you!

Dr Keeling was awesome! She was respectful, but direct and very effective in diagnosing my issues. She was able to get all the relevant details necessary in our first session. I am very impressed! Thanks Dr Keeling!

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr Keeling. I appreciated the layman's medical explanation of what I was experiencing and how the medicine might affect it. The office seems to be going through a major tech overhaul. Lots of bugs to get worked out. Might be trying to complicate things too much.

I had very little issue signing up for an initial consultation. Dr. Mehta has been extraordinarily understanding, helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and made me feel very at ease in discussing both my thoughts and concerns about my mental health issues and the approaches/medication strategies to treating them. Also I really liked the waiting area's little ocean noise maker. Highly suggest this location and doctor for anyone!

Dr. Emaya is simply amazing! I've been to many doctors over the years and she is one of the few who really cares about you and not just trying to solve issues with medication, which has been a lot of my experience with other practices. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new Dr.

Meet with Dr. Anbalagan and she is very kind and always available to talk to. My first ever meeting with a therapist and she was very understanding and genuine. Haven't had a bad experience here so far.

I have been going Dr. Savant for almost 9 months now and I feel so fortunate to have found her. She is excellent at what she does. She's not only a brilliant doctor--.she's very intuitive and has great instincts. She's also very patient and never giv...es up! It's taking me awhile to get where I want to be and I feel like she is right there with me. Another important aspect of going to her is her team of people who are always available to help renew prescriptions and get messages to her. They are truly amazing, kind and responsive. I went to her because I saw a dramatic change in a friend of mine and decided to to give her a try. I moved to San Francisco from New York and had tried several doctors here. I was not impressed so I just resorted to calling my doctors back in NY for treatment and phone consults. I am doing so much better thanks to her and I like her so much that I go from San Francisco to Los Altos to see her. I just can't say enough about her. She also has a team of therapists that she works with at Savant Care and I have been very happy with her recommendations. They all work together so you really get cohesive treatment.

She is amazing! Objectively listens and takes everything you say seriously and into consideration. I had trouble scheduling my first appointment with her previous assistant because he lost all my info twice and I almost gave up, but I'm so glad I didn't! Even if you have issues with the office, keep pushing through because Dr. Savant is wonderful (and, incidentally, scheduling is way easier after the first appointment).

I have seen 3 PhD therapists in my life and decided to try an MD for the option of medications when I moved to SF 1 year ago. I have been seeing Dr. Savant for 6 mos and am writing this review now bc my initial benefits have not only been sustained b...ut continue to grow. Though with her guidance I have trialed medications we decided together that I do therapy only for now. This is what is great- she has exceptional evidence-based knowledge about medications, but she works with me to cater to my specific needs/strengths. With Dr. Savant's holistic care, I have gained significant understanding about myself and my interactions with others that has transformed my life and health. She is incredibly compassionate and approachable but assertive and insightful. Everyone seems to have unique styles when it comes to mental health, but I want to share that I personally have benefitted immensely from Dr. Savant's care and thank her for improving my life in ways that I never knew were possible before.

As best as they come by. Dr. Savant was more than welcoming and her mindfulness approach in helping me through every step of my treatment was crucial. I've seen my fair share of psychiatrists, and she is by far exceeded all my expectations.
