He stopped my medicine cold turkey and switched me to a different medicine without telling me. I was at a peace hospital. I had to take the medicine. He had me held there. Got attorneys to get me out. Rude, foul mouthed, only in it for the money. Could care less about anyone other than himself.

Seeing this doctor was the worst experience of my life. There are to many reasons to explain in this comment of why. I personally do not think he should still be practicing medicine especially psychiatry!
