Dr. Wilinsky is a kind and nice man. But he's a witch doctor. He worked with my pdoc and put me through 30 ECT treatments in just over a year. I had major complications from them at the time including seizures that lasted four times as long as they were supposed to and concussion symptoms and he told us not to worry it just meant they were working. Today I suffer from memory damage and other complications from his experimentation. Proceed with caution.
