This office and it's staff are a complete joke...only its not funny. You are not greeted by polite people, you wait at least 45 minutes for every appointment, good luck getting one! I overheard one of the psychologists gossiping about a client to the receptionist!!! No patient priveledges here! I was disgusted. If you take medicine, good luck and be prepared to run out on a regular basis...they do not call in and even when pharmacy calls them they do not respond! I am lucky my son didn't hurt himself or someone else while in their care, Dr Ranjan never returned my emergency phone calls on the weekend. BEWARE OF THESE QUACKS...
I was seen by the most beuatiful doctor in the world at Connections and when Dr Ranjan took over the practice everythin for me went downhill. I was and am in complete control or myself and my actions and very well maintaned. But while under the care of the office of Dr Ranjan I was over medicated and shuffled along they tried to medicate me even more when i raised my concerns. They over medicated my husband to a point where he had trouble preforming the day to day living activities and raising our very young son. We were charged for appointements that we never made and for appointments that they sadi we missed that were never made by us. Once we left there, we are doing GREAT!!! It Took us threatening to take them to court to get any part of our medical records so we could be treated somewhere else. Has we walked into the new doctor's office to my surprise what do i see but one of his fornt office personnel. and she asked me to keep it quiet that she used to work from him.
NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER AGAIN WILL I SEE THAT QUACK AOR PAY FOR ANYTHING HE IS CLAIMING THAT WE OWE HIM!!!!!!!!
For 10 years I had seen 6 psychiatrists and finally I found one with common sense at Charak.
Excellent care and very professional doctors. Reception staff are not great, but not bad.
Love the people – very professional and make me feel at home when I come here. The doctors & nurses are genuinely interested in giving the best care possible
Avoid at all costs – FIRST, LOOK BELOW! Dr. Ranjan appears to have created fictitious positive reviews on himself that are fake(three positive reviews left in one day on 3/24/08 by three different individuals - highly unlikely, another reviewer claims to have knowledge of him having his IT staff create fake reviews.).
My Mother rarely saw Dr. Rakesh Ranjan while under the course of his care as an outpatient. Further, she was sent to Nurse Practitioners who recommended, modified, and prescribed her medications, in my opinion, beyond their legal capacity. I have valid reasons to believe my Mother was misdiagnosed and over-medicated while under the care of Dr. Rakesh Ranjan and Associates. She was recently transferred to another Doctor who indicated that my mother is taking medications for psychosis, when in fact, she isn’t psychotic (misdiagnosed).
Dr. Ranjan visited my Mother during the course of her most recent hospitalizations at night while she sleeping. He only stayed a few minutes and the conversation was limited to "Hello, How are you?" Of course, I am confident he billed Ohio Medicaid for this visit. I find it hard to believe he was able to gather much needed information and make an accurate assessment on her worsening condition while she was sleeping and under the influence of sleeping medication. I view this is as a waste of taxpayer funds, and an abuse of the Ohio Medicaid system.
Further, my Mother told me that other patients hospitalized by Dr. Ranjan had the same complaints. And, I even spoke with Nurses’ at Marymount Hospital who told me that I was not the only one who had concerns about Dr. Ranjan and his practices. Even a nurse who worked for Dr. Ranjan's practice expressed concerns over his techniques and methods. However, due to the capacity, demographics, and condition of the patients under Dr. Ranjan's care, I am concerned that the necessary Quality of Care and Medicare Fraud complaints are not being formally voiced to the proper channels.
Next, when speaking to Dr. Ranjan over the telephone on 12/15, he had no personal knowledge of any of the medications that were currently being prescribed to my mother, and was told he would need to get back to me in a separate meeting to discuss. I find it hard to believe he had NO KNOWLEDGE of her medications when he visited her the following evening. Of course, she was sleeping during this visit and hardly remembered seeing him.
In conclusion, in my opinion, Dr. Ranjan's practice is an assembly line of medicine at its worst. This doctor has several different office locations and is supposedly seeing patients at each of his 4 locations one day a week. A reviewer called his practice a "cattle call" and that is an apt description. Patients are revenue generators, just anonymous parts of a machine. Because he accepts Medicaid and other government programs, many patients have few other options besides his practice, and are forced to put up with sub-optimum care and bad treatment.
Last, I find it hard to believe that Dr. Ranjan (one of the few/only M.D.'s in his practice) can properly care for the excessive number of patients in his care, while being the President of a clinical research center (Charak Clinical Research Center), a Home Health Care Corporation (Spectrum Home Healthcare, LLC), and an outpatient Intensive Therapy Program (Charak Center for Health and Wellness).
In regards to my Mother's condition, she was transferred to another Doctor and Hospital and her condition improved as she is being slowly taken off of medicines that her current doctor deemed as "unnecessary". I now have peace of mind knowing an actual MD is involved in my Mother's diagnosis and prescription of her drugs, rather than a series of Nurse Practitioners that work for Dr. Ranjan.
They suck you in then spit you out – I just got kicked out of the medina office yesterday after karen who is the addiction specialist told me i wasnt doing what I was supposed to.Mind you I have done evrything I was told.I kept clean and sober did my meetings and my groups.I was there for 5 months and within that time I have been discriminated against,my sexuality was told,All the hippa rules were broken and the patient confidentality...well there is none.I would also like to say that they allow people to sell there suboxen.They knowingly have some people in there that sell thier pills and they do nothing about it.They kicked me out because I missed group because my poppa died.Ive never in my life met a bunch of selfish doctors and nurses.Im moving forward in havin there liscense revoked.Im sorry to those who have been treated badly there.Im here to to say that Im better with out that place.If you dont go there being a addict you will certaintly leave one.All they like to do is shove pills down your throat for every emotion you feel.
Dont take thier shit!!!!!!Stand up for yourself!!!
They are running a mickey mouse club over there and I hope to God someone will do something about it.They got thier degrees from the peanut gallery cause they all are a bunch of NUTS!!!
Dr. Rakesh Ranjan and Associates – Dr. Rakesh Ranjan and his associates have been extremely helpful to me since the day I walked into the office! Both Beachwood and Medina's office have the top of the line employee's. Dr. Ranjan and his team have helped me beyond what I had expected. I would never be able to thank them for the journey I have taken towards the right path in my life. Because of their treatment plan they offer, I am a better person today!
Thank You so much to all the staff at Ranjan & Associates!
A great doctor – I don't see how anyone can think this man is anything but a great doctor. When I needed a psychiatrist he was highly recommended by the people at the hospital I was at. He has helped me regain my life and I will forever be grateful. I don't mind waiting for my appointment because I know that he is helping whoever he is with and cares about all his patients and their needs. The staff in the office are always professional and as nice as can be. It's sad to see a few negative people spread their hate mongering all over the internet just to feel make themselves feel better about their own insufficiancies.
Ranjan Worsened My Condition – Ranjan, from the start seemed like a fake. I saw him NUMEROUS times over a few years due to being forced by my mother when I was younger. He asks questions, and doesn't listen to your response. You tell him you feel worse, better or the same, he ups your dose. DRASTICALLY. I saw him once a week, and every week he upped my dose of my original meds, and added something new. As a fourteen year old girl, this caused me to go from trouble teen to psychotic violent nut. He hospitalized me for two and a half weeks for asking him politely not to discuss my not even recent self mutilation in front of my 4 year old sister who looked up to me very much, because the fact that I CALMLY walked out of the room meant that I was "unstable and impulsive". While in the hospital, where he happened to work...I disclosed my sexual abuse story for the first time in my life...He tells me, very angrily mind you, that two people played a part, I wanted it and couldn't blame anyone else, and that I was just confused and had sexual urges because I was an attractive young lady. WTF! Then...I wasn't allowed to contact my mother for three days due to her hindering the healing process (his words), when a week prior he stated that my mother should be more actively involved.
So pretty much I went from, as I said a troubled teen, to a panic disorder-stricken, manic mess, who couldn't sleep because I felt like my skin was crawling, my legs twitched, and had constant extreme nausea, confusion and migraines due to being over-medicated. So thanks Dr. Ranjan, hope I helped you get yourself a new car and Rolex. Luckily, I'm 20 now, and for the most part, I'm normal :)
