Dr. Patrick Dowling refused to treat me because my diagnosis of ADHD happened when I was age 13 instead of age 9, which HE deemed as a fake diagnosis and refused to see me. He is 85 years old, so I am sure that his medical OPINIONS and 1950s medical license is myopic and outdated. There are numerous reasons a child would not be diagnosed with ADHD outside a specific time-window including no access to healthcare, latent symptoms, positive symptoms that are overlooked, or simply a misdiagnosis. To treat me like a criminal and refuse to review or request MEDICAL RECORDS from my Pediatrician and Adolescent Psychiatrist lets me know that this doctor's credentials should be reviewed by the state board of Louisiana. If you are still here reading this, I think it is obvious that you should seek out another physician that does not have misplaced ethics.

LITERALLY THE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!!! The doctor that works here is arrogant, told me I’m not OCD when I GOT CLINICALLY DIAGNOSED BACK IN 2014!! Treats me like a criminal like I am some kind of drug dealer! I asked him to do a mental health assessment on me and he said I don’t know about that. Pretty much treated me as if I was just a number. Told me that I was misdiagnosed and have ptsd after telling him about my OCD SYMPTOMS !! TOLD ME THAT WITH OCD YOU WOULDNT BE ABLE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE !!! Lmao he is a idiot !! Oh and he is also 84 YEARS OLD!!! Hang up the white coat sir I think it’s time !!

My children have been treated by Dr. Dowling as well as my grandchildren who are now 17 & 21.All have improved greatly with his patience and knowledge of child behavior. (Also knowing which medications work best in each situation) I always recommend Dr. Dowling when asked about who and how can I get help for my child's problems. He is sometimes blunt in how he tells it like it is but if you really want to help your child, you have to be ready to also look at yourself.
