Dr. Lantos is an exceptionally good and trustworthy psychiatrist. She has a great deal of empathy and understanding of people with emotional problems. I had sessions with her for ten years during which time, she somehow increased my sense of self. I went from a person who could not even do a reading in church to someone who could even give a speech if called upon.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lantos for the past 10 years. She is a very good psychiatrist and lets me do my own research when it comes to choosing my own medication management. (Most doctors will not do this). Furthermore, she is very understanding and forthright with making observations and giving advice. I have read some of the other comments that people have left and I believe that if they cannot take what their doctor tells them they should look at what is causing them to be so fragile in the first place. I will continue to see Dr. Lantos and I would also recommend any of my patients to go and see Dr. Lantos for psychotherapy and medication management any day. (I am a psychotherapist as well but not a psychiatrist).

I had my first and last appointment with Dr. Lantos recently. I found her to be very judgmental, unprofessional, brusque and cruel. I was referred by my Family Doctor to help me deal with depression, anxiety and panic attacks which I have been struggling with due to situational, extreme life experiences that have left me unable to work. Within twenty minutes of listening to some background information, she informed me that she was not interested in having professional patients, that my anxiety and depression could be resolved by getting a job to make me feel good about myself and should not indulged in my depression!!! I was shocked and felt humiliated by her snapping comments during the next 30 minutes. She definitely is not a medical professional that I want on my road to recovery. There was nothing positive, encouraging or caring about our exchange. She should know of all people how detrimental and difficult depression and anxiety is and more if you are struggling with other real physical ailments. Dr. Lantos approach needs to be reviewed.

My GP referred me to this woman back in January and today I finally went to what will be my first and last appointment. I can easily say that were I in a worse place in my life, she might have pushed me over the edge. I spent an hour getting insulted and being argued with about things that do not pertain to my psychological profile or mental health. She belittled me, overanalyzed everything I said, and founded our entire conversation on snap judgements. I couldn't get past a single sentence without having to defend myself. She criticized every relationship I have in my life, deeming all the positive aspects of my support structure to be toxic, and questioned my integrity constantly. She didn't believe a word I said, and would constantly try to antagonize me by questioning my accounts of my OWN life experiences. I should have stood up and left within the first 5 minutes of our interactions, but I was quietly hoping for something good to have come of the appointment. Instead I was put in the spotlight and mistreated. This was not a consultation, this was an interrogation. "She will berate and find fault in your appearance then look you up and down and express her opinion, as if she is the belle of the ball!" Said one reviewer, and I can attest to this. She decided to give me her "first impressions" after the interrogation, and it was only a summative of the abusive nature of what had gone on for one hour too many. If you value your sanity, your life and your self-respect, please do not see this woman.

This woman should be in therapy!! She is abusive and misdiagnoses problems. I feel she is insensitive to others and has a judgemental attitude. Very very unhappy person, f you want to feel depressed make an appointment with her. She will berate and find fault in your appearance then look you up and down and express her opinion, as if she is the belle of the ball!

I had not planned to leave a review but after reading some of the other reviews, I feel it is now necessary. I am in agreement that psychiatrists and psychologists often have to tell patients things they don't want to hear. But there is a fine line between delivering insight and being downright insulting. Lantos crossed that line at almost every appointment I had with her. I cannot agree that she is professional -- professionalism involves following a line of conduct, showing good judgment and polite behaviour. She does not. She insults, jumps to conclusions and she is very quick to prescribe strong medication. I lasted only a few months under her "care" until I finally stopped going. She created an environment where I felt constantly under attack. Trusting your physician is the foundation to a good relationship. The point of an appointment is not to endure personal criticism in hopes that, at some point, she will provide useful feedback. As for her life experiences, she certainly shared those. She even shared experiences that had absolutely no applicability to my situation. Given that my appointments were to help me and NOT her, I cannot fathom why she felt the need to share. As an example, she described to me how anti-semitism is still alive and well in Europe. Yes, that is very sad, it was quite a story, but I was in the appointment to discuss handling stress and a series of extreme changes in my life. Her story took about 10 minutes out of my 50 minute appointment. And frankly, after being insulted and treated with disrespect, I could care less about her life or her experiences. I was left with the feeling that she makes snap-judgments about people and if she has decided (likely within the first 5 minutes) that she doesn't like you, you need to be prepared for bad treatment. Be warned.

Dr. Lantos is a genuine human being. She manages to carefully balance her professional obligations with a refreshing candour so needed in psychiatry. That candour may account for some negative reviews here, but my experience was positive and life-changing. If you are ready and able to self-reflect and to work through issues, she will provide the professional support and guidance needed to sustain your journey. By definition, this means she'll tell you things you may not want to hear at times. That's the point. There is no doubt her own life experience influences how she practices psychiatry. I am not sure how this is different from any other psychiatrist. Dr. Lantos is a caring professional and the emphasis is on professional not 'cuddly' or artificially 'caring'. You are presumably seeing her because of her expertise. Make use of it. Her expertise and experience is hard to find.
