What People Say About Dr. Ammar Traboulsi, MD

My nine year old gets a little anxious when he is timed on his tests and I want to try to put a plan in place for him to have special circumstances because of his anxiousness. He wants to prescribe meduication that my son does not need at all. He spent 20 min with us and decided that my son should be prescribed med. My son is well behaved and mild mannered , very polite and I have had no issues in school thus far. The med he wants to prescribe is for ADHD. Ridiculous and a complete waste of my time. We will be going elsewhere for another opinion.

Awful doctor. Came to him for help when I was suicidal and depressed. He remarked that the self harm cuts on my wrists “weren’t very deep,” as if I was applying for the depression olympics. Basically treated me like a specimen with no feelings instead of a human being. On top of having 0 empathy or people skills his office stinks, long wait times, dark and dingy waiting room.

Rude and has no respect for individuals battling addiction. Disrespectful and lacks knowledge as well as empathy for the disease of addiction.

Dr. Traboulsi met with my 17 year daughter, who has an eating disorder, and treated her like she was a thing, not a person. He only asked about her clinical self - not her whole self. He was completely impersonal and suggested that we "Google" a clinic that could help with her eating disorder.

He had no clue when we walked in about who he was seeing as the patient. I had to tell him my daughters name. Argued with me over dosage of my daughters meds. He just reads off a computer and is rude. I would not recommend him to anyone.

If you’ve been paying attention to any local news outlet for the last five years, you know that prescription drugs, their side effects, and the dependencies they cause are anything but a laughing matter. Some cause debilitating side effects, while others, such as opioids, have the potential to cause overdose and death. Regardless of the drug in question, current medical recommendations clearly state that patients should openly discuss side effects and possible drug interactions with their clinic

My daughter saw Dr Traboulsi for a time. His approach was logical and evidence-based, and he explained his recommendations very clearly. He uses electronic medical records, so needs to record the conversation in real time; that is the future. Other than that, he has good eye contact. Found him to be caring, as well. Based on my experience, would recommend him.

Went to him because he was the closest dr. In my area. I was suffering bad and needed help and guidance. All he wanted was his paycheck. We were just numbers to him. No help at all, just more and more medications that don't help

This Dr is not engaging. He never looks at me or my son. He never asks my son questions although he is 18. Very unsatisfied. I didn't have much choice because I couldn't find a Doctor who would see a minor child in my area. I see a physc dr. in the same building who is great. We are moving on as of next week!!!! Very happy about that!

I tried and tried to see the good in Dr. Traboulsi's practices and patient treatment. Time and time again, I tell myself okay, this is the last time I'm coming back, but other psychiatrists have limited openings, so I deal, just to get my prescriptions. I dread appointments. Sometimes I cry after them just because I get treated in a sub-par manner, and I pay so much out of pocket. Not to mention, mysterious charges from his office that my insurance company cannot explain...

He didn't treat us like people or patients, but like nuisances.
