Best Psychiatrist Near Me

“As a professional colleague of Dr. Ambardar’s who has worked closely with her in both the outpatient clinic and ER hospital settings, I can attest to Dr. Ambardar’s superb clinical and diagnostic skills, her agreeable bedside manner, and her genuine concern for patients. Dr. Ambardar is a consummate professional and a wonderful, caring psychiatrist. Her patients have always spoken very highly of her and I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone seeking a bright, compassionate physician for themselves or their family members.”

“Dr. Ambardar maintains a true professionalism and calm that is not equaled by many of her colleagues. She has a quiet, unassuming demeanor, but underneath she is intelligent, hard working, and her psychiatric evaluations of patients are well thought out, organized, and sound. Sheenie is a good person. She is honest, decent, and fun. She is well liked by the faculty and staff. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Ambardar. She would be an asset to any faculty or medical school.”

“Dr. Ambardar has tremendous insight into personal and collective trauma and the impact of ancestral trauma on a person's life. It is not often you come across a professional who has an in-depth understanding of collective trauma and its impact on an individual's life. Her work and her insights have been supportive in my own healing journey. I highly recommend anyone wanting to connect with their ancestral histories, collective trauma, and current life experiences to work with Dr. Ambardar. She is a caring professional.”

"The quality of care I received from Dr. Ambardar was unlike any other doctor patient relationship I've ever experienced. Her calm, compassionate, and empathetic presence helped me navigate one of the darkest periods of my life. I came to Dr. Ambardar in a complete crisis, and over the years of us working together she helped me completely reframe and rebuild my mental health. The progress I've made since working with her has been astounding. I'll be eternally grateful for her support in processing and accepting some very challenging diagnoses. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Ambardar to anyone in need of one of the best psychiatrists in LA. You won't be disappointed with her support."
