Ratings for Dr. Andrew Nielsen
What you would expect being retained by Workcover. Total scam. Been to see my GP, Hospital psychiatrist, private Psychiatrist, specialists that all are in agreement but not this Dr. The report is not impartial adding points never raised with diagnosis to suit in favour of his regular payer, yep, work over. Just that one thing to stop your legitimate claim. Shame on you for the torture session. I wouldn't believe this is what you studied for, helping people or more money coming in. I see the money has got to this Dr. Stay away from him. He will deny at any cost. Lacks integrity.
How "Independent" can this assessment have been? Workcover ( the insurance company) reimburse the Dr for the report. The report favours Workcover, move cases come his way and yes more money. Biased reports to say the least. Many Other Drs disagree with him that are not connected to Workcover. This scandal must stop. You spend all those years of study to get a masters degree in a profession you must be passionate about but lose the objective of helping people, understanding them, really understanding them because there's an incentive !!!!! Money! instead it's let's just tip the report to reflect on this and that and the focus of the discussion meant this if I twist it a little to fit not really outlining what was discussed. It's okay, that person has just gone through a major event but I need to pay my mortgage and support my family! The person that has been through hell needs true guidance and dignity to live, I'll repeat that, to live each day but that's all taken when it's Biased. I do pray for this Dr and that he may be forgiven in what he's doing to people in desperate need already going through hell to then be out through more hell with this unethical, unprofessional "Independent Examination" I now take a day at a time. I will never forget what you have done to my now miserable life.
Unfortunately not "Independent" but under the umbrella of Workcover. Able to twist and report so you are not able to claim. Be very aware of this Dr when visiting. Try's to trick you but then says what he wants. Very disturbing to say he's supposed to be independent and professional.
This doctor presents as emotionally immature and insecure. He appears unable to feel empathy and can leave you feeling unsupported and alone. The only explanation I can come up with, for his behaviour, is that he must have lots of problems with his personal life. He will bulk bill but you'll probably be worse off after treatment so it's not a fair deal. I always walked out of the appointments feeling really awful. I'm now seeing another psychiatrist and am feeling much better. If you're not happy with his treatment don't wait too long to see another doctor.
Kind, compassionate, considerate, humane and thoughtful. Extremely intelligent, takes care to understand difficult problems and complex life circumstances without leaping to premature suggestions as to how to solve them. A tad eccentric but engagingly so. Thinks creatively and comes up with innovative practical solutions to life problems. Diligent in explaining theories and perspectives in psychiatry to allow for informed choice about treatment pathways. Extremely supportive and patient. Has a cheerful, entertaining and optimistic conversational style. A proper gentleman in whom one can be comfortable in placing one’s trust. A real gem.
