Patient Comments (3)
in Indianapolis, IN |
Shoot believes negative psychological problems, and many physical conditions, are symptoms of a lack of knowledge, which means acting in a way that is self-nurturing, ie, don't be overly judgmental of yourself and don't go too far the other way and over indulge in things that aren't healthy. If you continue to have problems after being exposed to this idea (and his drug prescriptions), he will blame you for not using knowledge. This reductive approach leads to oversights and victim blaming. Bad

Dr. Shoot was always very willing to provide drugs. He has his one way of conducting therapy, Freudian based, very judgmental or opinionated, he enjoyed the sound of his own voice, and was comfortable in telling me that I should not feel the feeling I was experiencing at the time. He was very disrespectful about my father which was continual with each session. I left his office angry most times. He is a medical doctor and was more than willing to provide unsolicited (unwanted) medical advice

Dr. Shoot is an amazing therapist. He helped me through some very difficult times in my life. I needed some 'tough love', and he gave it to me. I am a better person for having seen him, and I continue to carry the lessons I learned from him to continue to thrive as a happy person.
