Where do I begin about Cinnamon….this man absolutely transformed my life in ways I never could imagine. His life story is heartfelt and his perspectives are eye-opening to say the least. He has been with me since I began my journey and has helped me be more confident, open, and forgiving of myself. He has helped me tackle so much and I’m truly grateful for having met such a beautiful soul.

My therapy with Dr. Vaysman has been great. She is straight forward and has a great way of helping you deal with issues in new and helpful ways. The Esketamine treatment has saved my life. I used to think of suicide at least 2x an hour. I still think of it sometimes but due to Dr Vaysmans help I have no trouble dealing with this. I came to this office seriously when I tried suicide so it has truly been life saving.

I would highly recommend Dina Froustis, APRN at Ray of Hope. She is an excellent listener, a skilled professional, and really takes the time to truly understand a patient's condition and concerns. A definite 5 stars out of 5 stars.

Dr Bansal ALWAYS listens to her patients and makes sure they understand her recommendations as well. I went thru 3 other Neurologist until I found the Best. 5 stars isn't enuf to give to her outstanding attitude and professionalism

Had my annual appointment and it was with Jacylyn Wahl, which was my first time meeting her. She is a perfect fit for this practice. As with Dr Bansal, she makes a person relax and able to talk to with ease. No pressure and never got the feeling that I was taking too much of her time. If Dr Bansal is unavailable, I will definitely go and see Jacylyn again.

I went to Ray of Hope after my anxiety got to a point that my general doctor could not treat anymore. I found Ray of hope through a mom group on Facebook and it was the best decision I have ever made. Right off the bat I felt different, I felt as though we had finally put together a puzzle that no one else could figure out. Dina is someone i feel like i have known forever. I can tell her anything and she genuinely cares about her patients. I just love her!!! I have felt cared for not only by Dina, but by Faya and Dr. Bansal as well! I have a team working with me, supporting me, caring for me and making me feel so loved! The care at Ray of Hope is exceptional and I tell everyone who needs a psychiatrist and therapy to go there! It’s been a blessing in my life and my saving Grace! I am so thankful for my team!!! ❤️

Cinnamon brings a fresh perspective on life and truly understands the emotional well being of his patients. His dance therapy sessions allowed me to rest my brain and practice emotional well being through music and movement. I leave each session feeling more calm in general, and my brain feels rested as it is so focused on the session. I am thankful dance therapy with Cinnamon has been added to Ray of Hope's therapy offerings. It has been a tremendous source of assistance for me while navigating through some of life's hurdles.

I saw Dr.Bansal and Dina NP this summer, and they were amazing! Dina specifically took very good care of me and made sure we got to the bottom of my health concerns. She has continued to help and support me through my medically journey at Ray of Hope. I have never been to an office where I was cared for the way I was. Everyone in the office was genuine, and made sure appointments and tests where able to fit into my crazy schedule. They worked with me and I can't thank them enough for everything they did to ensure we got to the bottom of my symptoms. Highly recommend this office and to see Dr.Bansal and Dina!

Faya is absolutely amazing. She makes me feel hopeful for the first time in my life that through EMDR therapy we can change the thought patterns of the trauma I experienced for many years. I feel very comfortable with her. She is very relatable and has already taught me so many things. I will take back control of myself and no longer let these horrific memories and people control my life. I matter! Faya, thank you!

I have seen a multiple psychiatrists over the past 15 years and every appointment felt like a chore. Dr. Bansal is exceptional as a diagnostician, trouble-shooting medical expert and quality of life advisor. I have seen complaints around waiting too long in the waiting room. I have never experienced this, but even if I did, I would wait as long as I needed to. She and her staff are INCREDIBLE. I feel seen, heard and cared for every time I go.
