Ratings for Dr. Hanna Pytlak
On my second visit to her (suffering from lifelong generalized anxiety), she complained that "you know, other people have it worse in the world" in an annoyed tone, and later told me that I was whining like a 4-year-old. Great feedback after getting up the courage to see a doctor and discuss my greatest fears (as a grown adult). Cold and detached. Wanted to push medication, told me it was the only thing that would work and I'd suffer from this my entire life. That may end up being true, but it seemed my role in her office was to follow orders without question. Left the office feeling worse than when I arrived.
This lady should have her own Psychiatrist, she is trying to kill my grandmother by giving her prescription medication that conflicts with her other medications that have been prescribed from her attending physicians. Dr. Hanna Pytlak is a drug pusher.
The office setting, receptionist and environment are always relaxing. Dr Pytlak is by far one of the best medical professionals I have ever been to in my life. Not only does she treat me with respect and listens to me, but her staff are professional and compassionate people. Dr. Pytlak is not a 'know you by a number instead of your name' kind of doctor either. She's down to earth, yet still professional, caring, and gives top of the line medical care to her patients.
This lady has almost killed my grandmother because of her drug pushing tactics and now my grandmother has had a stroke and doesn't know if she is coming or going. Antidepressants are not to be messed with and should not just be given to shut people up!!!!
So far I have had no help or advice. She spends far too much time looking to see what time it is, and cutting off sessions early, even after starting late. She actually has offered no advice towards issues, and has pointed out some obvious things (you are stressed, etc?) She does not review her notes before our session, and when I return and carry from out last conversation, she has no idea what I'm talking about, pretend to know she does, and I have to re-explain things I have alredy told her twice in the last sessions?! Where is the passion? I feel like its all a big money grab, she spend her time lookign at you and asking "how does that make you feel"....okay yes i do understand this question is important....but maybe try phrasing it a different way once in a while!? Thats all she says? Her solution was to put me on medication (anti-depressants) which is absolutely no what I wanted....the last thing I need to to be but on ahighly addictive drug which is hard to wean from
