Dr. Louis Peltz's Ratings
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.
I see that many people have had a similarities in their experience with Dr. Lou Peltz. Hold him accountable for his actions. Complain to the CEO (Michelle DiEmanuele) and Patient Relations at Credit Valley Hospital. There is a link on the hospital website, or you can call 905 813 2200 ext 4109, or you can write in and mail it. Each hospital runs as a corporation, and has a board of directors. Hospitals cannot ignore care consistently reported as sub-standard if they are aware of it. I have complained directly to the hospital. One complaint letter can be ignored. 100 cannot. Make his employer aware of problems that you have encountered. They cannot fix what they do not know is wrong.
I've been suffering from clinical depression and anxiety for several years. I went to Dr Peltz and poured my soul out, but he treated me condescendingly and actually chuckled as I was explaining how I felt. He smugly told me that I was going through a "phase". During the appointment, he asked me irrelevant questions that I felt were intrusive and unnecessary. For example, he asked if I had a boyfriend or if I wanted to have a family - I was a teenager at the time and it was obvious my disorder had no link to my non-existent romantic life. At the end of the meeting, he didn't give my family any advice, he just left. It's kind of sad that uncaring doctors like even him exist, because there are patients who really need not only need professional help, but a friend and confidant. Overall, Dr Peltz is pretty unhelpful and not the least bit interested in connecting with his patients.
