Small-minded doctor sitting behind large desk diddling computer without listening. Lies about drug side-effects. No interest in complimentary or holistic therapies. Lives in a tiny box. Little compassion or empathy. Earns $600,00 per year. He and nurse play "good cop, bad cop" with you while you are in the hot seat. Wears too much mismatched tweed. Snotty. Enjoys using poly-pharmacy while not really knowing where it will take you. To him, all drug side-effects are in your head and not real. Does not relate well to physicians who take care of your physical health care. Thinks that minerals and vitamins have nothing to do with good brain health. Does not like the consumer and family self-help movements as this is a threat to his job. Will not look into any research that you may have done as he thinks only he and the Psychiatric Machine have all the answers. Over medicates. Does not know how to fill out requests for blood work on his own. Only swears by Big Pharma. Find someone else.

Horrible treatment in hospital. We are all threatened with ECT (electric shock therapy) and forced injections here at Royal Jubilee Hospital here in Victoria, BC. He is mindless and boring. I feel like a slave, forced, bullied, constrained, oppressed, enforcement, harassment, intimidation, threats, arm-twisting, pressure, blackmail, sexual assault, menace, duress, restraint and brow-beating and coercion.

He clearly does not care. Doesn't listen and is uninterested. Very disappointed with him.

I am very sensitive to side effects. Balikrishnan heard me say I had horrible side effects for 5 years, and his response was he had to get to know me more in order to decrease the medication. All in all it seems if you cross him he has a temper. I don't think he really cares that much. Typical psychiatrist.

This man's ego is astounding. He is a bully and shows very little compassion. He does not listen and makes assumptions. I was also put off by the way he talked about my previous Dr. who is his colleague. Victoria Mental Health Centre is a mess at the moment and the most vulnerable are suffering. Too bad the Times Colonist doesn't have the balls to do an expose on the way its NOT run.

Mt Doctor deprived me of my Class 1 Professional Driver's License for no valid reason, and all my friends supported me in this assessment of Dr. Balakrishnan's behaviour.

Worst Psychiatrist out there. Watch out! Diagnoses how he feels. Doesn't listen to patients!
