Dr. Louis Peltz's Ratings
Hello, this Dr. is the worst Psychiatrist ever. Don't go see him. He is very rash to judgement, and will do anything to ensure that he is right. He doesn't care what the facts or history of a patient is, he makes a quick judgement and then if you try and contradict him, he threatens you.
This guy is something else. After a 40 minute consultation, told me to take my son out of the french program in which we have invested 3 years, and wanted to prescribe meds as he "probably" has adhd. Are you kidding me? No tests were scheduled, nothing else was said or done. Going for another opinion, as this is completely unacceptable.
Totally egocentric and arrogant. When I went to see him all he did was flash his degree and try to boost himself. Sorry, but if you're in a position where you help others, it's imperative that you are humble and modest. This doctor is anything but that.
4 years ago at 15 I found myself in the Credit Valley ER after I was concerned about my thoughts of killing myself. At this point I has been diagnosed with an eating disorder and social anxiety disorder. The nurses were kind and understand but when Dr. Peltz showed up he turned my world upside down. He told me I was just looking for attention and didnt need any further help. He didnt speak to my parents and we were told my nurses that he discharged me. In May of that year I had overdosed and been taken back to Credit Valley. Unfortunately I found myself having to deal with him again. He told me he remembered me and knew what I was doing. He said that I purposefully only took enough medication to make me very sick, but not kill me. He again discharged me that night, again without speaking to my parents. My parents were for good reason frightened to take me home. Him saying that my eating disorder, anxiety and depression that set in within those months were all for attention made me close myself off and refuse to accept anyones help for fear that they too would say im just looking for attention. Not getting any help landed me in William Oslers Adolesant Inpatient ward for upwards of 3 months nearly a year after my last interaction with Dr. Peltz. I am now 19 and his words still stick with me and hurt me. So much so that I dug through my pile of discharge/other medical papers just to find his name and make sure everyone knows this story. If your child sees Dr.Peltz please get them other forms of help and do not let them close themselves off from the world after seeing him.
We poured out our concerns for our son and this doctor barely listened to us. He just stared off into space and looked imp stormy. At the end of the appointment, he prescribed some meds but that was it. There was no compassion, he never asked how my son was doing/felt. If these are the kinds of unenthusiastic, and unhelpful doctors that med schools are educating nowadays, then the world is a sad place, indeed.
Our daughter has been with Dr. Peltz for 14 years. With Dr. Peltz's help, understanding and advise our daughter has gone from a diagnosis of MID to a learning disability and will be tested this month before enterring university. Dr. Peltz has consistently shown interest in my daughter and has been very helpful to my husband and I. Our daughter feels very comfortable with Dr. Peltz and looks forward to showing him her progress every visit. I would recommend Dr. Peltz to everyone. He tells it like it is. He cannot FIX our kids but he can surely help lead us in the right direction and give our kids the confidence to be the best they can be. NW
A friend of mine attended at the hospital for a crisis situation and was seen by some helpful crisis team members. However, that is where to good service stopped. Eventually he was seen by this doctor who was extremely rude, judgmental and very unhelpful. I was told that he is the head of psychiatry at the CVH in Mississauga, everyone should be concerned. Just because some is injured as a result of being in a car accident does not mean they have ulterior motives to compensation. You are ignorant just thinking that way. It is time to retire Dr because you no longer deserve being addressed as such.
Doctor seemed indifferent to the patient's struggles and constantly checked his watch during the appointment. He makes quick judgements without fully listening to the patient's description of their health, and is adamant about his opinion when contradicted.
