Ratings for Dr. Alan J. Waldman
Please do not believe his own ratings of himself. This subspecies of human is not someone you should send somebody you love or care for to. He is abusive and arrogant. He is beyond incompetent. You will not leave a better person for having met this little, obviously tormented, being. If you are forced to subject yourself to his venom please demand that a witness stay with you during "treatment", and I use the term treatment lightly. Regardless of what is said below, I have experienced him, and my treatment was so bad that I was prompted to write this...do not believe the 5 stars...there is no way my session was an anomaly; from start to finish his was a profane, arrogant, little bully of a subspecies. This is by far the worse experience I have ever had with anybody in my entire life.
Dr Waldman is by far the most competent and effective Mental Health professional I have ever encountered. I've had more benefit to my symptoms and outlook on life after working with Dr Waldman, than any other avenue I have pursued. I utilize the services of Dr Waldman by choice as a Private Client, not through the Legal System. Therefore my opinion is based on a two year experience. His Administrative Assistant Sheila, is a strong asset for his practice. Thorough and Caring. I would highly recommend Dr Waldman for anyone who is serious about working on their Mental Health issues. Based on his extensive knowledge of Neuro Forensic Psychiatry, I feel that he would provide superior Analysis and Testimony in the Legal Arena.
This man should not be trusted. He cleared multiple severly mentally disabled inmates for death row. That's tantamount to murder. All he wants is to disprove mental illness. I'm not saying those people should have been weren't guilty, but they had documented cases of paranoid schizophrenia, delusions, and hallucinations. Dr.waldman decided they were mentally competent for execution with only a 90 minute analysis interview. He admitted to not knowing the persons entire medical history beforehand and he didn't use any of the standardized evaluation tests. This man is a fraud, and worse than that, incompetent.
Dr Waldman is the most unprofessional dr that i have ever encountered. His personality is harsh,rude,and belittling.I was referred to him thru Judge martha Lott for a compentancy evaluation to stand trial. he gave me a competent to proceed report. while waiting for my trial date my attorney said that Dr.waldman had requested to see me again free of charge, because I am a gulf war vet,and he took a liking to me. after calling Dr.Waldmans office to make an appointment.His secretary sheila said that he did not request to see me. After relaying this info to my public defender.(essentually purjury) I was given an "immediate appointment" to see him in 30 min. I rushed to his office,with my father as a witness,only to be told that he would not see me if my father was present. I entered his office alone. I asked him if he told my PD that he wanted to see me free of charge. and his response was "I do not recall that." I then asked my pd why he told the judge that and he got up and left the room
This doctor is very rude!He tells you to rush paperwork cause it does not matter, puts you alone, belittles patients, likes to make patients cry,laughs at illnesses he knows nothing about, slanders other physicians for their actions,does not like people to cough, does not offer water, does not offer tissue to crying patients, makes appoints feel like interrogations, makes you feel like you are lieing and have done something wrong, works for bug companies to ensure they do not have to pay disability to disabled people, thinks noone should take medication,acts very very superior to ALL people not just patients,speaks in a rude condescending tone,this doctor is a very rude, uncaring physician! If you do not have to see him I would advise you do not! He does not care about your medical needs or your feelings as a human being. He enjoys seeing you upset and intimidated
