Downers Grove, IL |
Condescending and arrogant. Uninterested in discussing needs/treatment of child with multiple special needs.
Huntley, IL |
Dr Schrift has been my doctor for more than 20 years. With his care, commitment and expertise I lead a full, happy, active life for which I am very grateful to him. Prior to coming under the care of Dr Shrift I was seen at the Mayo Clinic and by numerous other psychiatrists without improvement.

Hostile, horrific bedside manner and I didn't even feel safe in his presence.

Dr. Schrift is one of the rudest doctors I have ever met. He told me I knew things others did not and I was dealing with an illness. He just lets his residents do everything for him and keeps you on edge. Don't trust this monster.

RE: Dr. Michael Schrift, It has been over 10 years since our daughter has been on Clozapine, due to being unable to control her without it. Dr. Schrift agreed to be her psychiatrist, since the previous psychiatrist could no longer, and he has been caring for her all these years. He took her off of it. Here is what she looks like now: She is more happy, more verbal, responsive to others, willing to try new activities, cooperative, and fun to be around. You would think it is another person LOVE
