Ratings for Dr. Hanna Pytlak
Dr. Hanna Pytlak is a supreme psychiatrist, and she combines it with such empathy, compassion and tolerance. I had been to many psychiatrists with very little advance. Thanks to her my life has metamorphosed from insufferable to constantly secure. Dr. Pytlak is including nutritional treatment along with suggesting cutting-edge therapy. She comprehend a blood test and prescribes only what is needed. She is truly kind and giving. Without her, I'm not sure where I'd be.
In our third appointment Dr. Pytlak told me I'm ruining my children's lives, questioned my relationships, inferred I don't spend enough time with my elder two children because I have a baby, and more. She questioned why I wasn't with my ex husband anymore (we've been split for 11 years). After telling me it's her opinion that I have BPD (a disorder created through trauma during the formative years and something which *can* go into remission) as opposed to Bipolar, she then said there was nothing she could do for me and keep taking my current course of medication. If I wasn't so secure in the areas she spent 45 minutes attacking, Dr. Pytlak could very well have created a major spiral in my life. She would have done infinitely more harm than good. I would absolutely NOT recommend Dr. Pytlak to anybody but especially not to anybody LGBTQIA+, LGBTQIA+ ally, divorced, going through a divorce, ever had a breakup of any kind, have kids, have a mood disorder, suspect a mood disorder or wanting any kind of talk therapy. Dr. Pytlak has antiquated views on the world which she approaches with a cold attitude.
I've only been a patient of dr pytlak for a shirt few months but in this time I have finally found my awful being able to open Up about trauma in my life and various other issues, I found for aft Pytluck easy to talk to, very intelligent and she has a wonderful sence of humour, I plan on laughing and crying in the woman's office for many years , she has a great attitude about life!
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.
