      SUFFERER! Wrong diagnosis. Over medicated and have a head/neck/ Spine injury as a result. No compensation. Patient for 13 years. Saw every 3 weeks. Wrong Therapy mandatory (DBT). Cost a fortune. Have long term PTSD undisgnosed. Had to stop working as a result of wrong medications 16 years ago. Blew me off. Victim of neglect/ maltreatment. Ticked off with Popkin.

      This Dr. over medicated me for 13 years and I had to stop working as a result. I only required an antidepressant from time to time, Prior to his mis treatment. He also diagnosed me with Borderline Personality, and never explained it to me. He contributed to my emotional pain, by not accepting responsibility and counter transference. I actually suffered from severe abuse and neglect, which we never talked about. He collected insurance and co pays every 2 to 3 weeks. Malpractice C.R.S. is 2 years.

      Dr. Popkin is excellent in many ways. He is very easy to talk to and his "presence" is calming and understanding. He has a way of "re-framing" an issue that is exactly what feels right to your soul! He is excellent in managing my dosages of various medications because he listens very attentively, and therefore, his recommendations are just what I need. He also offers medication management without "forever" therapy and is quick to identify any changes that may need to happen with my meds.

      Called for an appointment and spoke to an very prickly receptionist. She repeatedly emphasized that Dr Popkin gets phone calls everyday for new patients and that she didn't think she could ever fit me in. Just stating that you aren't accepting new patients would be sufficient- no reason to berate a patient seeking psychiatric services which can be a very difficult call to make.

      I consider myself very fortunate to have been under the care of Dr. Popkin for going on 7+ years. I have no complaints regarding his work or care. He is no nonsense in his approach, uses session time wisely, and very in tune with my concerns and feedback. He has stabilized my condition to the extent that it can be with current medical knowledge. I have never felt that my mental health was not of his primary concern nor have I ever felt or been over medicated.
      After 4 visits he couldn't get my name correct, pushes pills I specifically said I didn't want and was absurdly priced. Example of our health care system at work

      run as fast as you can away from this doctor. He ruined my life with overmedicating, and not managing medications properly. he is highly unethical in his practice. I was much better before I started seeing this walking prescription pad. I have a reading disabilty on top of his long term abusive prescribing methods. Legally it is my fault for taking his prescriptions for 13 years. I suffer from memory problems. I would slap him with 13 years worth of lawsuits if I could, and and more.
      It was and is wonderful. I feel safe and heard and I feel better when I leave his office.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
