Ratings for Dr. Zulfika Wallani
Dr. Wallani, I cannot thank-you enough everything that you have done for me. After the birth of my second child I didn't realize it but I was suffering from postpartum depression. Things got worse and worse until I wound up at the emergency at Markham Stovall hospital. I am so lucky to have crossed paths are such an amazing physician. He was kind, considerate, committed, knowledgable. I owe my happiness to him. He was very patient with me and I was very reluctant to try western medicine. He allowed me to use an integrative approach which ultimately led to my remission.
Dr. Wallani has literally destroyed my life. I met him with antidepressant withdrawal syndrome which he misdiagnosed as anxiety and depression. He relentlessly polydrugged me for years (20 plus drugs in five years). When I complained for years that of lithium-induced hypersomnia, he portrayed lithium (and all drugs) as innocuous and that my fatigue was from a “depressive episode.” When I discontinued lithium, however, my fatigue vanished! Despite this, he irrationally refused to acknowledge that lithium caused my hypersomnia. Further, when I was changing drugs, I developed antidepressant withdrawal syndrome again (as he basically had me cold turkey the drugs!) Dr. Wallani told me I was depressed and required electroshock therapy… for withdrawal symptoms? Once, when he suggested I had a personality disorder, I asked him for justification. He said, “Well, sometimes you disagree with him.” That’s right. Disagree with Wallani, get a personality disorder. Dr. Wallani is highly irrational and always blames the person rather than the drugs. I wish it were possible to bring criminal action against Dr. Wallani as he has ruined my life through his liberal and ideological use of psychiatric drugs. If anyone wants to learn more about psychiatry and psychiatric drugs, I highly recommend Anatomy of an Epidemic by Robert Whitaker.
This doctor ruined my family he took a paranoid personality disorder and misdiagnosed it as agoraphobia. This put an unstable person who was in the hospital under his care for a grand total of three days, then she came out crying someone raped her then left in a home with people who don't know how to deal with that illness and every reaction is a lie to that patient when you tell them other wise and left them in a home with a bunch of pills to fend for themselves. He's the worst type of doctor a pill pushing piece of garbage. It's fine go to him if you have a small problem but if your in need of serious help he doesn't kno what the F he's doing. I only hope I don't have to clean the mess when my mothers slits her wrists tomorrow. F You dr good for nothing
Amazing guy he really cares and has helped my husband get his old life back. Has really gone out of his way to accommodate my husband when he had a busy schedule. Thank you Doctor Wallani!!!!! If it wasn't for you I don't know where we would be!!!
I am Bi Polar and Dr. Wallani has worked with me for years and never gave up. I am now stable and continue to see him once a month. He is kind, caring, asks the right questions, listens well and after getting to know me understands that I am a positive person who enjoys a laugh while dealing with my disease. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Dr. Wallani. You have given me promise and hope and kept me alive all these years. I truly do owe you my life and I could never repay you for what you have done for me. Despite whatever people say about your tardiness you always spend time with me when I need you the most. I don't mind waiting because sometimes you are dealing with someone in crisis. I hope that I never am but know that if I am you will be there with me.
I first saw Dr. Walllani almost a year after a car accident. We both learned a lot during my visits. He helped me move through and past the accident. I helped him understand how people change after a car accident - as this hit home for him - from happy and confident to angry and sad, even depressed. More than just a gifted psychiatrist, he is a warm human being.
