This doctor was the worst experience we ever had. Put my son on a medication (Abilify) that almost killed him, and didn't heed my warning signs. He put him on 2.5mg of Abilify up to 7.5mg in 3 weeks. I explained my son is a slow metabolizer, and he told me I was cuckoo. When I said my son gained 25 pounds in the month after being put on Abilify, he told me my son needed to diet. When I told him my son was insanely aggressive because the Abilify was too high, he told me that it meant we needed to increase the dosage more. Each conversation left me feeling abused, demeaned and an unwelcome member of my own son's team. Joshi sits like a king on a throne, and expects you to do everything he says. He does not pay attention to science or side effects; he simply wants you to do as he says. If you don't, he will tell you that anything bad happens is YOUR fault. Run as far as you can from this doctor and the Bressler Clinic. They do not care about you or your child.
