Do not have this doctor care for your child! Every visit my child says how he rude he was. I never did care for his attitude much and today was the final straw. I asked him to repeat a question and he blankly stared at me for 5 seconds then raised his voice to repeat, as if I was the child with ADD. He made my son cry today. He also thinks the slightest movement in a child is considered having trouble focusing. Awful! Please do not see this doctor for your concerns.

Awful!!!! Never go to this man...Rude to my son and daughter! I see the same pattern after reading his reviews. Wish I would have read them sooner. He added himself to the list of unprofessional Psychastrist that my kids don’t trust!

This so called doctor has no business treating anyone. He has absolutely no bedside manner and doesn’t have a clue about how to treat my son. He gets on to him about fidgeting with his hands and ask about his grades in school every visit. He is very rude and acts very superior. Don’t go to this doctor!!!!

I took my son to see Dr. Wilkaitis for anxiety. He has a horrible bedside manner. He reprimanded my son for fidgeting! Anyone knows that a child with anxiety is naturally going to fidget. My son begged to never go back to see him and we have not nor will we ever. I would not recommend him to anyone!

I took my teenage son who suffers from Anxiety and ADD. I paid a lot of money for the evaluation but all this Dr. did was talk with my son and then diagnosis him with Anxiety disorder. Really, I had already done that. No testing completed etc. Charged me $375 to tell me what other doctors had already stated. Then, when I cancelled an apt 22 hours in advance, I was charged $100 fee because I didin't cancel 24 hours in advance. Ridiculous. Will never go back.

This is one arrogant and uncompassionate human being. He does not need to be in the business of caring for children! He saw my 11 year old daughter while she was an inpatient at Brentwood (another place I would not recommend sending a child!) and he was frightening to her, arrogant, and refused to talk with me about her care. He immediately put her on ADHD meds even though that was not her diagnosis. He is an awful "doctor" in any sense of the word! Stay away from this horrid man!

When you take your child to a psychiatrist it is generally an act of desperation. The parent is reaching out because they do not know how to help their child. He did not try to interact much with my 5 yr old who has a speech and language disorder. He belittled mine and my husbands concerns. He took a non urgent call about scheduling in the middle of our apt without apology. He told us there was nothing he could do if she wouldn't talk to him. W/out directing us to who could help.

My child left his office in tears. This was possibly the worst bedside manner I've ever seen in a doctor, especially one who specializes in children.
