When I was 16 I was diagnosed with OCD(the OCD is now completely gone because I went off ritalin and the OCD was really just a side effect of the ritalin I took for MILD ADD).
Dr Blackman had me put on anafranil for the OCD and took me off the ritalin, ad right when I went off the Ritalin the OCD got a bit better but only a bit better, while the anafranil did not help much itself!
Dr Blackman also put me on desyrel to help me sleep since the anafranil affected my sleep.
He put me on this white colored desyrel and it did not have any bad side effects, but when he put me on this weird beige colored desyrel I GAINED 25 POUNDS IN 3 WEEKS!!!!
Even when I went off the desyrel completely the 25 pounds just stayed making me look noticeably chubby with a bloated face for my at the time 5"11 frame, and I had never been a pound overweight my whole life!
I was on anafranil from November 2007 to August 2008 and right when I went off the anafranil under my own choice I lost 14 pounds in around 2 weeks!
I told Dr Blackman that right when I went off the anafranil I lost 14 pounds he quickly shot me this very hateful look! he basically gave me the evil eye! haha.
Then in another 2 weeks I lost over 20 pounds all together and went back to my thin self!
The WEIRD thing is that when I asked Dr Blackman if the anafranil was making me overweight he looked down and in a strange way quietly and uncincerily said "no" PEOPLE LOOK DOWN WHEN THEY LIE!
Then when I asked him if it was the combination of the desyrel and anafranil that made me gain wait he just nervously and quickly shouted out "NO!" then angrily asked me to leave his office!!
Obviously he reacted so strongly to me asking him if the combination of those two medications caused the weight gain because HE KNEW THEY MADE ME GAIN WEIGHT AND WAS ETHER DOING IT ON PURPOSE, OR DID NOT CARE! and therefor did not want people to know that he knew he was making me overweight, since doctors are supposed to take people off drugs when they know they are causing a real weight gain!
He is a HORRIBLE DOCTOR for making me gain weight while knowing about it or even worse doing it on purpose and I did see that Dr Blackman is very fat himself and might want people to be fat and miserable like his is! Or he is just a monster who likes making people gain weight!
Dr Blackman is also very slow and does not even speak properly! I could hardly understand what he was saying most the time!
A horrible Dr who bullies. Obvious some people left great reviews b/c he bullied in their favor. Archaic understanding of the world. Inattentive. Commands respect and allegiance -doesn't earn it.
I was horrified when I discovered that he now is a WCB shill. My heart goes out to all victims of Maurice Blackman
Dr. Maurice Blackman educational abilities and long years of experience have placed him in a category so high he should really be teaching his findings and experiences; he doesn't look down on any human soul no matter what the problem. In my family each chose their own way in the end no matter how hard I worked to raise the perfect family. Dr. Blackman was supposed to help my daughter and he did. Like all children and perhaps adults too, she chose her own way anyhow, without any of us. At 27 years of age she found her way, by far the most successful in the career, money, and home life. She shared with me the skills she learned while she did spend time with Dr. Blackman was all she needed, even when we thought she needed more. He didn't stop there though he treated my husband, then me, and my son reaped benefits because the whole family changed suddenly. When you are broken he will help you pick up the pieces and begin again. All of us are grateful, each of us were finally free to choose our own destiny. Did you know you are allowed to do that no matter what. We accepted our own imperfections, all humans have them you know and they don't just disappear. So the good is wired into all of us the same as the bad. Dr. M. Blackman gives you the knowledge and the tools to make life happy and work. Remember you have to do the work its not all him. Good luck and God bless those who have yet to meet him. I know you will not be disappointed in him but he will share in your disappointments with you because he genuinely cares. As for money, everyone has to make a living. Would you have what it takes to do what he can do? I think I have enough skill to make a change in this world but I sure wish I had his knowledge base, education, and experience. Thank you Dr. Blackman
Dr. Blackman treated my daughter when she was a teenager who was suffering from a very severe depression as a result of a prolonged medical illness. She also was diagnosed with ADD and would not have completed school with out his help. She attended University and has done really well in her chosen field. He is currently treating my grandson for ADHD and he is in Junior High doing very well. Without Dr. Blackman's help I do not think that my daughter or my grandson would be able to succeed as well as they have.
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,
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
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.
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.
Please keep telling your stories about this man we need to put his authority abuse to an end the more stories the better we can get the healing we deserve and make sure he cant hurt anyone people. If you know anyone else who seen him and had likewise experiences ask them to speak up post here do whatever we can.
