Ratings for Dr. Henry Rosenblat
> 2 years as patient. Very Knowledgable and helpful!! I arrived with a bad anxiety problem and he helped me work through that and work out secondary diagnoses that over all turned my life around. He was always there for me. Any success that I have now I owe it at least in part to him.
I am also shocked to see some of these bad ratings. Dr. Rosenblatt and I have worked together as a team to get me to the best place possible with my mental health issues. He is extremely knowledgeable and will take my suggestions and we have productive discussions . I feel better when I see him. I drive a long way to see him and he is worth every mile! I think some patients just may not be open or intelligent enough to do their research and advocate for themselves.
Some of these ratings really have me scratching my head. Seriously?! I was first diagnosed with Bi Polar and Generalized Anxiety Disorder in 1991. I'd been through close to a dozen psychiatrists, some just didn't click, and a good handful just gave up on me (saying so right to my face). Saying I was feeling hopeless is a vast understatement...and then along came Dr. Rosenblat. From about 2002 to the present, this man literally kept me alive. Where others had given up (I was a tough case), Dr. Rosenblat, sometimes with just words alone...even if I was freaking out over the phone, gave me hope. The man is very knowledgeable in his pharmacological facts, but he's one of those rare sorts, that understands that sometimes talking is more helpful. He never loses it, always a calming, caring voice, even when I was anxiously jumping up and down in my seat, just a couple of feet away from him. He promised that he would never "give up" on me, he promised that I would indeed get better...and he kept his word. His receptionist is not only the easiest person to talk to, but she has no peers when it comes to patience. Just a terrific person. Look, if you've been through the maze and long waiting lists of psychiatry like I have, then you know it's hard enough not only finding one, but even harder finding the right one. It took many years, many doctors, but Dr. Rosenblat proved that it is indeed possible to find the perfect fit.
This doctor is very caring and knowledgeable. Very kind person. Bad ratings are likely from people with some serious mental or emotional disorders and can't handle his diagnosis. People with serious emotional and psychological problems may not see things 20/20 in the first place which is why they are there. Paranoia, narcisistic, extremely depressed and also unrealistic entitlement issues. Slamming the doctor won't correct your problems.
I'm confused by some of these ratings, as I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Rosenblat! He might come off a bit short, but he's just blunt and doesn't sugarcoat things. He asks VERY direct questions that can sound a bit harsh, but if you take the time to try to answer the question he acknowledges that these are difficult things to think about. He listened to me and gave me the medication I need to function properly and always asks about how my mood and life is, listens, and gives useful advice. He's not a psychologist, so those looking for long talk-therapy sessions won't find that here - he does his job well and has changed my cynical opinion of psychiatrists!
By far the worst experience I have had with a mental health Dr. I was open and honest with my situation on the intake form and the look his conceited and rude secratary gave me was deplorable. I was going through a very serious situation and he said he would see me a week later, then rescheduled my appointment at the last minute for next month. I am absolutely disgusted with this behavior. I will be submitting a formal complaint to the CPSO. I should not have to divulge extremely personal information to people like this, who only care about getting paid. Completely unacceptable.
One of the worse psychiatrists I have ever seen. He rushes you during the appt. and when you finally hit on a topic to discuss, he says "times up"? This is only 15 min. into the appt. He is constantly looking at his computer as it will sound when your time is up. He doesn't seem to listen well, ask questions and just says "how are you? What can I do for you today?" I always feel like asking, "well how much time do I have today?" If he was to say 10 min. (his usual allotted time is 10-15 min., than I would just say I am fine and not waste my time even if I wasn't b/c I knew I would require more than 15 min. I would leave feeling worse. Booking a longer appt. with him for 45 min. would usually mean 15-20 min. I saw another doctor who always booked my appts for 50 min. and I have been seeing him. My family doctor would see me longer than Dr. Rosenblat and my GP has a room full of pts., but if I needed him to see me, he would see me until we came up with a plan. He would even offer to have me come in after is practice and see me then and we would be able to talk for how ever long I seemed to need. My GP has been my best support. I would never refer anyone to Dr. Henry Rosenblat.
I am baffled by the other ratings! I have seen a number of other physicians and found Dr. Rosenblat to be the best by far. His receptionist is pleasant and responsive. Dr. Rosenblat is clear about the extent of his services. When I needed additional support, he provided it. He doesn't coddle you or reinforce disability. On the contrary, he encourages you to work on yourself and to be the best you can be. With respect to knowledgeability, he seems to be expert in his field. He caught a serious error my GP had (unintentionally) made and changed a prescription to one which suited me far better. I find Dr. Rosenblat to be an outstanding psychiatrist.
