Dr. Maurice Blackman's Ratings
I had him as a psychiatrist while I was in the hospital in my teens. What a horrible experience... every time I was in the same room with him, it felt like an interrogation. He would use what my parents said against me, and he always seemed to be looking down on you. He didn't care about my concerns and just repeated and emphasized things that weren't even related to your problem. Worst part is that he forced me to go see him even after I got out of the hospital even when there was no point in that. Eventually our sessions became staring contests because I refused to answer his "inquires" into my life because I knew he would turn it into something else it's not. I've been to a fair share of doctors, and he is by far, the worst. DO NOT GO SEE HIM. I have not loathed someone as much as him.
Please, if I can save anyone from ruining their kids life further from seeing this man, I promise he is a horrible, unupdated, pathetic, $ grabbing dr. Please, he is the worst in the mental health industry. Not enough room to explain all the bad.
great clinican understanding and helpful. He saved my daughters life and also brought our family togetherg again. Dr Blackman is professor of Psychiatry at the University of alberta and has received many awards from his work,
"Independent" Dr used by WCB to back them up. Late for appointment by 45 min. Talks a lot about things that have no connection to the appointment. Lied to my face about my condition and gave WCB everything they wanted to terminate my benefits. This guy should be put out to pasture. If you are told you need to be assessed by him, run. He is a discredit to anything to do with the medical system.
I saw dr Blackman almost 20 years ago and still have the emotional pain of ever seeing him . He ignored everything I said in one on one sessions then behind my back talked my parents into locking me up at the u of a psychiatric ward simply cause he couldn't diagnose me.
After six months of pure hell for a 13 year old my parents got a referral for a dr. Parsons and within a few sessions he properly diagnosed me with having Tourette syndrome and had me in the grey nuns to assess my medication and watch the side affects .
Maurice Blackman is a fraud and no more a doctor than I am if u really want some one who is going to help u call dr Michael parsons he's the best in the city
I am also 36 years old now and have no vested interest any more but when I found out this man was still ruining the lives of children with his bogus degree I had to warn all who would listen
corrupt doctor. frighteningly overweight, lacks compassion, awareness or understanding to properly assess a developing brain. for a few hundred dollars he will write you any kind of paper you want. it haunts me to this day knowing somebody like this has been given power.
Absolutely shoddy experience of this so-called Doctor. WCB arranged an IME for me with this guy and his report reiterated the mistyped information of a previous report ( despite our discussion of the corrections : objective facts, for instance (me) " the counselor ' s report from last month said that I was born in another country and immigrated last year. Must be the product of a hectic workplace, because here's my birth certificate, Passport, and picture album highlights childhood: I was born here and haven't ever left ". So, that's what you can expect from this guy ... sleeping through an interview and writing reports based on previous reports. Since this became such a big deal, and the obvious disgusting facts of his incompetence has been advertised in my WCB circles, I would be quite surprised if WCB sent another person his way. BUT, if you are reading this... yes .... run the other way.
It was such a good experience having met this doctor. He was so easy to talk to and he was a very good listener. We were able to talk and agree. I sure know Im not capable of doing this with my new psychiatrist. I suppose one of those aspects of growing up you take for granted is being able to see a child psychiatrist.
He made me write my first 16 page paper. He not only helped me by listening but he was full of good knowledge! He introduced me to ecology and that being part of my problem . And not putting all the blame on me as an individual. This man is brilliant and underrated.
