Ratings for Dr. Mitchell F. Banks
This is the first review I have ever written, the fact that I had to write it should let everyone being a patient of his, when I was told the news that my husband had a 20 percent chance of living I was so distraught Iput a call in to Dr. Banks, his secretary told me he was with a patient and would return my call, he NEVER did. Then when his secretary called in a wrong prescription for me and I had the nerve to complain I got a letter from him telling me he will not be treating me anymore, with no explanation. It's been well over 3 months that I call consistently for a reason for my "dismissal" but he will never return my call. All this from a doctor in the mental health field. I would strongly suggest keep far away, there are plenty of other doctors around.
I SWEAR AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!! STAFF VERY RUDE DOCTOR YUR IN AND 10 MINS FLAT THERS NO TALKING HOW ARE YA WHAT KIND OF MEDICATION YOU NEED SEE YA BYE PAY AT THE DOOR!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY JUST OPEN THIS GUYS DOOR TO HIS OFFICE AND YOU WILL HAVE THE ANSWER YOUR LOOKING FOR!
I have been seeing Dr. Banks for years. He listens and answers questions. Professional, understanding and compassionate. If he does not know something he gives helpful advice and recommendations. I see him for a few issues but mostly I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. The medicine he has me on works well. Staff is also helpful, friendly and considerate.
I went to him for years from the time I was 14 to 21. He misdiagnosed me. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. He definitely prescribes you whatever you want and does not believe you when you complain about severe side effects, which many SSRI's have, including hallucinations to suicidal thoughts out of nowhere! OH and when you switch doctors, he will NOT send over your paperwork. Isn't that illegal?
Dr. Banks is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have severe bipolar disorder and this is the first psychiatrist who knew what he was doing. He told me upfront it would take time to wean me off my current medication and replace it with more effective ones. It took 7 months total but I feel better than I have since my first episode at age 24. Thanks Dr. Banks!
