Ratings for Dr. Kipling Walker
I found Dr Walker an extremely personable individual, whom I easily related with. He took the time to listen to my thoughts on adult ADHD and then provide feedback and advice on what I had said. I suspect that the negitive reviews on Dr Walker are due to his no nonsense approach to diagnosis and people not being given the advice that they thought they needed and being jaded when someone said no. I enjoyed my two sessions with Dr Walker and couldn't recommend him enough.
Dr Kipling Walker is a treating psychiatrist where he is paid by Vet Affairs and where his patients give him rave reviews of 5s. In this instance he forms a doctor patient relationship where his patients can make complaints about him to the medical board. On the other hand, he also does consultancy work as a forensic psychiatrist where he assesses those who have claimed worker's compensation. Here he is paid by the insurer or the employer. In these scenarios he is not under the usual doctor/patient constraint. Also in this scenario, breaches of medical ethics cannot be complained about- well they can, however the government regulator receiving complaints where there is no patient/doctor relationship usually does nothing except store the complaint on file. Rating 5s or 1s tells me something. I'll be the only person rating in the middle - I didn't want to skew the legitimate reviews
Every bad review is spot on. He cited word for word false and misleading accounts and statements that he was provided, in my psych report. He mad a very serious and damaging misdiagnosis narcissistic personality disorder, which has been reversed by a much more experienced psych. He wrote his report 1 month before seeing me. The one and only session lasted 45 minutes and he did not listen to a word I said, as the entire report is false, and I have proven easily with hard evidence and witness states that this is the case. Unfortunately an unbelievable amount of damage to myself and my reputation resulted from his report. His behaviour seems to be repetitive as many people have documented the same treatment I received. He is a disgraceful individual, who most likely has a personality disorder of his own. Its very sad to think of all the people he has hurt, and all the people he will continue to damage. I hope my experience helps others to not feel like there alone or crazy. Sincerely, Defence Member
IME started with telling off support person to isolate victim, thinly veiled threat that he would report non-compliance and have compensation cut-off, then followed a non-stop 2 hour interrogation, ignored victims multiple requests to not discuss non-injury related material, cherry picking the few occasions when the victim had attempted a "normal" outing, reported these out of context, suggested this was frequent behaviour and claimed exaggeration of symptoms. As expected, ultimately biased report that went further and even advocated to the organisation to search through victims social media posts. Was supposed to be an assessment for ability to undertake rehabilitation, resulted in compensation being terminated entirely. $7500 in taxpayer money to enable the organisation to bully the victim further.
I have found that those people who have such a great distrust and hatred of Dr Walker are all rather similar in many aspects. They seem to be taking the system for a ride and attempting to sway their own delusional personality traits which they claim are the fault of their employer. Dr Walker calls a spade a shovel and he has saved the taxpayer an incredible amount of money by exposing fraudulent claimants.
In February 2017, I attended consultation with Dr Kipling Walker of Macquarie Street, Sydney for a Fitness-For-Duty ("FFD') consultation and report for my return to work after depression caused by workplace bullying. I found Dr Walker to be frightening, unethical, deceitful, inept and extremely dangerous. On account of Dr Walker's report, my employer terminated my employment in November 2017. My employer contracted Dr Walker to do the same to a work colleague in 2014. She took her matter to the Fair Work Commission and her dismissal was found to be unfair and my employer was forced to reinstate her to her former position. Dr Walker should not be practising in any field let alone destroying the lives of innocent people through his unscrupulous conduct in psychiatry.
Ordered by 'Dept. of Veteran affairs' (DVA) to see this questionable psychiatrist, within my only consultation for half an hour he completed had diagnosed me with not having any psychiatric conditions as diagnosed by many other psychiatrists! Completely destroyed any hope of receiving my DVA pension... Hope you enjoy your over priced DVA consultation fee.
Dr Kipling Walker seems to enjoy labelling people damaged by their workplaces as having profound personality disorders. I would argue, given his cold and creepy manner and his total disregard for patient well-being, that he is the one with severe personality disorder- he’s likely sociopathic . He is verbally abusive and twists your words to suit his agenda, and leaves out any positive traits you might have. If you must see him make sure you make an audio recording to protect yourself . Bring someone to support you. Just look up the article on him in Crikey news and also note that he is the only physician with a Freedom of Information request to Comcare. He should not be practising medicine as he is inflicting harm to unwell people.
