Ratings for Dr. Ivan S. Baroya
Dr Baroya is one of a few doctors I trust with my best interests at heart, and who helped pull me out of a very dark place. Granted, this also took a level of commitment as a patient towards my own recovery - which is key to any treatment. Yes, we tried many different medications as the key is finding which ones target the defunct neuroreceptors, which is normal. He prescribed the meds I needed, yet is very careful with the threshold of addiction with things like benzos - which considering my horrible anxiety, is a good thing.. but can be worked around w/ other non-addictive medications. He teased out my dx and this has been the absolute best I have felt/functioned in decades. I'm very sad to have lost him due to moving away.
I am currently suffering from severe amounts of panic and anxiety every day for the majority of the day. Dr. Baroya straight out tells me to play around with the medications a little bit and see if something makes me feel better. On two days, I took one extra Xanax and I immediately told him about it at our appointment two days later. He then tells me to try it out for a week and see if I feel better. Initially, I did feel better so I told him about it and told him I would need more medication to cover the increase. Instead he comes back at me accusing me of being an addict and he refuses to treat me unless I do some outpatient rehab program. First off, I'm not an addict, second, I'm suffering because the medications HE prescribed aren't working and then he refuses to treat me. I come to find out he is actually on staff in that outpatient program so it all makes sense now. This doctor was trying to force me into something I did not need/want all so he could get double payment from me. He set me up to look like something I am not, he turned his back on me and I was forced to go find a new psychiatrist within a matter of two days. Now luckily I've found someone who will taper me off the Xanax like Dr. Baroya should have (even the hospital said he should be tapering himself) and is giving me the treatment I need. Steer clear of this doctor. He's got an agenda called...MONEY.
