Accepting new patients
Psychiatry · Male · Age 64
"Funneled through his Fresno address, he does lots of work for pharmaceutical companies and is well compensated for it - just enter his name into the ProPublica 'Dollars for Doc's' database to see just how profitable this has been for Dr. Markovitz. No wonder he makes a practice of poly-drugging patients and making it very difficult for them to withdraw from the drugs he pushes. It took me 8 months of horrible withdrawals and no support from him to get off these drugs. Run far from him. The danger is real."
"Odd. The guy is too quick to judge and rather rude. His advice is so basic I could get the same from a stranger on the street. I get the impression he's in it just for the money. If he senses you're not impressed with him and his advice, he gets short and makes it clear he has no interest in keeping you as a patient. On the other hand, if you praise him and make it clear you'll be a non-problem and not ask a lot of questions, he'll be happy to keep you coming back amd paying him for years."
