Dr. Abid Khattak's Ratings
Dr Khattak is great. I read these other comments and I think may of thse people have had a hard time accepting that they have mental illnesses. If you can accept the diagnoses and have the support people around you (that aren't crazy themselves) to help you would realize he is a first rate professional.
This imbecile treated my 18 yr old son for depression and suicidal thoughts all he did was anger us and my son with his rudeness and lack of knowledge with Clintons case he then released him only to have my son try to kill him self 5 days later at which point he was again put as my sons physcician our son demanded we be in the room while talking to him at which point this so called doctor told us his parents "its none of yoour buisness"
Dealt with Khattak at the ARCCH PCDU. A family member was admitted for a deliberate overdose, and was originally seeing a different psychiatrist earlier in the week who was waiting for a bed for her in the psychiatric ward. Khattak took over on day 5, abruptly cut her medication dosage by 75% without explanation, then arbitrarily decided to discharge her the next day without treatment. She is now experiencing extreme withdrawal symptoms from the abrupt change in dosage, in addition to dealing with the untreated problems that led her to the ER and PCDU in the first place. If anything, Khattak's "treatment" substantially worsened the situation.
This doctor spent a short time with my mother who had taken an overdose of sleeping pills and was in hospital. He had obviously not read the patient notes as she had been saying all day she was still suicidal. He phoned me at 8.00 pm to tell me he was send her home right away. I was horrified as there was nothing in place for her and I told him so. He responded telling me it was "not going to happen" so he was sending her home. I told him she would be alone and he said that was okay. An elderly woman of 86 who had taken an overdose was surely at risk of doing the same thing again if she was left alone. She had no clothes either. I was fully expecting to see her standing on the doorstep and I believe if I hadn't objected he would done just that. This doctor should not be practicing pyschiatry.
Dr Khattak saw my son, but before finding out why we were there to see him, he laughed and asked me why my son was behaving in a certain manner. I stopped him immediately and asked to see someone else when he quickly tried to compensate for his initial behaviour. He was kinder after I told him he was acting very rude and inappropriate but I would not see him again.
I am not found of this doctor at all. He has yet to diagnose me correctly after numerous appointments and 4 months of seeing him. He prescribes me medications that do NOT work and have horrible side effects. He's NEVER on time and he seems pre occupied when I am explaining how I'm feeling and what my concerns are to him. I am in the process of finding a new psychologist
First time I saw him, he gave me prescrip. for 3 months x 5 meds all at once-I replied that prev. Dt. had given me blister packs delivered 2x weekly so that I would not overdose (as I had several times before). He said that it was not his problem if I overdosed & would not write "blister packs" on prescription. Later, when on duty in hospital, he had me arrested twice (falsely) on charges of assault & threatening (both charges dropped). Another time, he certified me because I had taken a gun from a sheriff at the courthouse (also false), and for a week, he & staff harassed & accused me constantly about it. Then he said, "I'm keeping you here for a few more days for observation," then I called my lawyer who called back & reported that he was in courtroom as a witness & that it had not happened-then I was suddenly released, no apology or reason given. In subsequent hospital visits, he has continued to harass & falsely accuse me. He is now under investigation by CPSBC (www.cpsbc.ca)
Dr. Khattak is a very helpful, caring, and knowlegable psycologist. I have only seen him once but he was very accurate with his diagnosis of me and his treatment plan so far has been noticably affective. I am looking forward to our next appointment to see where we go from here. I would definately recommend him to others. I was very leary of psycologists up until I met with him. He made me feel comfortable and listened to what I had to say regarding my own observations of myself.
Dr. Khattak, is a very caring psychiatrist. I like his bedside manner. He tries to encourage his patients to take charge of their own wellness. However, he will take charge when his patient is unable too mentally. He is the type of doctor that will call you at home directly to check on you. He is easy to get into see. Sometimes you have to ask him to speak up because he has an accent. He really goes to bat for his patients, and takes patient confidentiality seriously. He lets his patients run their own care however, will step in and certify you if necessary for your own safety. He doesnt force you to take medication.
