Ratings for Dr. Marc H. Lipschutz
I was sent to see Dr. Lipshutz through my neurologist when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It is never pleasant to be ill. Marc helped me to gain confidence in my ability to cope. I was able to pull myself together and re-enter the workforce. I became a bookseller for Barnes and Noble for 12 years. Not only did I look forward to work everyday, but the nature of the job had me maintain a standing position for 7-8 hours every day! May not sound like much, but for a person having ms, it is quite an accomplishment. Marc helped me to become sure of myself at every turn! I tried to thank him many times but hopefully he will see this and realize how much I truly admire him.
afinepsychiatrist who has an almost uncanny feel for his patients and getting at root core of their situations and problems or difficulties. instinctively knows when to move in and when to back off. the worlds' best group facilitator with a great grasp of all the latest trends in psychiatry firmly entrenched as a former chief resident of one of the countrys'highest rated programs in psychiatry.
I feel like I lost 5 years of my 20's due to the care from Dr. Marc Lipachutz. I believe he misdiagnosed me during that time, the meds he prescribed made me worse and eventually I developed symotoms I never had, and due to the way I think feel and act now, I feel certain it was due directly to those meds. I spiraled worse and worse in his care and since I have since weened myself over one year ago, I have not had one panic attack since, and all the new spymtoms disolved on their own. At one point he actually called me and yelled and cursed at me on the phone while trying to fix a complication. NEVER would I recommend his care.
I have been a patient of Dr. Lipschutz for many years, and have had an excellent experience with him. He has been available during emergent times in my life, he works with me with medications, and I think very highly of him. I am a bit shocked to read the negative reviews of him and his office. I find neither to be true. I take my health care very seriously and would not tolerate the type of behaviours described above. I would question the credibility of those entries. I recommend him most highly.
Wow. I could not disagree more with these reviews. Maybe just disgruntled people write reviews and satistified patients don't? A) He's not a dinosaur. B) He's incredibly empathetic. C) He's very flexible about appointments. D) He's always called me back. E) He's taken a patient, thoughtful approach to my meds and care. Finding a shrink you click with may take a few tries - you need the right chemistry w/ a doctor to share all your feelings. Maybe these people just didn't click w/ him? I've found him very receptive to reviews and criticism.
Marc Lipschutz seems unprofessional+ I feel treated badly by him. Dr. Marc Lipschutz didnt listen to any of my concerns+ wouldnt schedule apptmts when I needed them due to suicidal feelings. Marc lipschutz doesnt give your concerns careful consideration+ respect. Dr Marc Lipschutz is unable+ unwilling to be a partner in your care. This physician knows how to make you feel very badly about yourself.
Dr Marc Lipschutz doesnt know basic medicine/pharmacology/kindness. My relative had a severe, life altering stroke while in his care. All involved were unable to reach him EVERY TIME called! Always rambled on how busy his practice is, making her feel guilty for even trying to seek help. The depression/grief that occurred after this was mind boggling. His lack of empathy/incompetence/quickness to judge was outrageous. If you are seeking even the minimum standard of care/treatment a caveman could give, definitely skip having your money pilfered by this quack. There are 1000s of other MDs in Philly who want to heal not harm, just look at this site! Because of all this + more, it is my opinion that he gets the lowest rating possible, like most raters have already done. Their comments are so accurate, it is chilling! It is truly a shame there are no zeros on the scale!
My opinion of Dr Lipschutz is very poor.I found him to be thoughtless,unempathetic & disinterested.At the lowest moment in my life, Marc Lipschutz hurt me very deeply.I saw him while studying at UofP.Not known to him,I was a still closeted gay male who had been brutally ****ed by my step dad for 6 years.I was falling to pieces very rapidly.I never worked up the courage to tell him due to his judgmental & skeptical opinions about other things which I had confided in him. Marc Lipschutz sees things in black or white,true or false,right or wrong terms.I needed to be believed & not judged;he is not wired this way.He never prescribed meds,a fact which still shocks me & my medical colleagues.Anyway,my self-loathing & depression greatly increased,leading eventually to my attempting suicide.After that,I went to another therapist who brought me back from the depths of hell. Marc Lipschutz has very poor ratings on dr & insurance ratings boards. I would recommend he be
