Ratings for Dr. Michael A. Gureasko
Had to wait for hour and half and when I did see him he was very rude. He ask questions without giving you time to answer. DR. G answer his questions before you could. Never in my life I experience a doctor like him. I strongly believe he has mental issues his self. Another thing I believe he thought he was talking to another patient then me. He had things mix up about me and my family. His rudeness I did not want to tell him because I don't think he would have listen. My health at the time was more physical serious health problems that became chronic, putting me into a depressant. This doctor can really harm a patient the way he treats them especially someone who has chronic health problems. He should know when a patient has chronic health problems and in chronic pain they are at risk of becoming depress. I walked away feeling very sad the way he talk to me and in tears. Years later after seeing other doctors they apologized for how Dr. G their collect treated me and said his report is nothing like they see me. I can now almost laugh and feel sad for him that he is not a kind human being. After reading other reviews I see this is how Dr. G treats people. Must make him feel good about his self to hurt people who are physically or mentally not well. He should be a shame of his self and after 40 years of practice realize he can really harm someone and possibility the patient might become suicide by his attitude and rudeness feeling helpless when they leave his office. I believe in speaking the truth to the patients. There is no reason you have to be unkind and rude making the patient for bad about them self when they are a good person who came to you for help.
The most rude and arrogant doctor I've ever met. He already had his treatment and diagnosis of me before even meeting me and rudely interrupted any time I tried to offer background information on myself, which he seemed very little to be interested in. I left the appointment feeling worse than when I went in.
I am an immigrant to the US. When I started seeing Dr Gureasko my English was not very good. I also have tinnitus and cannot hear very well. After a few sessions Dr Gureasko started saying"you must learn English" when I could not understand some of the things he said. This and other derogative manners became more frequent with time and were the reason I quit seeing him.
Very rude, not likable person. He drilled me with rapid fire questions and said he had me figured out in under 3 minutes of discussion, if you want to call it that. I think he's used to severe cases, and since I have mild bipolar / bipolar ii, he seemed irritated that I was there. One visit, and I won't be going back.
Others talked and gave me medicine. Dr. G. whacked me out a serious D&A problem and back into my life in about 80 days. He works closely with AA and followed up by phone to make sure I stayed on track. He is somewhat quirky and random and didn't leave me feeling warm and fuzzy. Very knowledgable and effective. Cares about what he is doing and knows what it takes. I'm better. Worked for me.
Not at all worth getting into a conversation with unless you just have to. i learned quickly that he was there to prescribe drugs and my therapist would help me with the rest. on the plus side, i am in and out quickly and only have to go every few months to get a renewal. you get used to him after a while, but (as far as i'm concerned) learn quickly to keep your mouth shut, get your prescription and get out.
I am impressed with Dr. Gureasko's approach to treating me. My experience with other Psychiatrists has been very centered on prescribing meds. Dr. G doesn't prescribe unless he absolutly thinks you need it. He definitly has me on the right track.
