Ratings for Dr. Liaqat Ali
My daughter is severely addicted to the drug Clonazepam and Dr. Ali as well as many other of the doctors at RVH keep prescribing it for her. This terrible drug has destroyed my daughter's life as well as my husband's and my own. For 20 years now, I have been telling the psychiatrists at RVH not to prescribe this drug but I am ignored. Because this is a legal drug and my daughter is an adult, they are legally able to prescribe it. However, I am the one who has to deal with the consequences - the many suicide attempts, the run-ins with the law, the stealing, etc., etc. She feels omnipotent when taking this drug and her mind becomes very addled. It takes a very long time for her brain to recover from the effects of this drug. It's just as if they are prescribing heroin for a heroin addict. Of course the addict is not going to refuse the prescription when he/she craves it so much and the authority figure tells her it is good for her. My daughter suffers with debilitating anxiety. She says she can't stand to be in her own skin and Clonazepam relieves these feelings. However, Clonazepam then causes worse problems. She is unable to think clearly, cannot hold a job, acts irrationally, overdoses on the drug - but does this all with a big smile on her face. She ends up losing all her natural instincts for protection and puts herself in dangerous situations. She has been raped several times while under the influence of Clonazepam. She now suffers with Post Traumatic Stress as well. There seems to be no respect for human life. After 20 years of battling with doctors about this issue, Dr. Ali prescribed more Clonazepam just a week ago and my daughter is back in the Mental Health unit at RVH after another suicide attempt requiring 18 stitches to close the impulsive gash she made on her wrist. He never spends any quality time with her to discover what exactly her problems are and the best way to give her help. Clonazepam seems to be the go-to drug for these doctors. After a five-minute interview, the prescription pad comes out and it's over and done with - on to the next patient - just keep the line moving. It's my opinion, from my observations over 20 years, that these psychiatrists are being paid by the big drug companies!!! I can't see any other explanation for a doctor to prescribe an addictive medication to a drug addict. I speak to as many people as I can to alert them to the dangers of Clonazepam and I have met a surprisingly large number of people taking it. There seems to be a concerted effort to just medicate everyone. The costs would be astronomical I'm sure to give the mentally ill the treatment they need. Much easier and cheaper to just medicate them.
Hi. i'm the person who left a comment on December 3rd 2016. If I could erase my comment, I would and will if and when I find a way. The reason for this is because I am in a much better place now, and looking back on what i said at the time, I realize that some things i said about the mental health system were a tad irrational, as ,was life at that time, as I was going through an ongoing custody battle for my child with CPS.. I was frustrated at the system in general, hence I felt a need to "lash out" However, my views of mental health and medications, etcetera have changed and expanded since that time and been blessed with more knowlege and understanding. I'm sorry to dr. Ali, as although we didn't always "seem" to "connect" in agreeing on certain issues or ideas, you saved my life a few times. You also have a lot of very straight forward , helpful and practical insight in your profession as well as in life, and I did always love the way you were straight forward and never beat around the Bush - referring to the old cliche "you meant what he said and said what you meant!" You also had a great sense of humour! I understand that psychiatry and physicians and nurses have a very tough job caring for people and having to make crucial "life and death" decisions and I feel sorry for you guys sometimes. I couldn't do your job! Life can seem devastating for all humans sometimes but there is so much good, and I want to thank dr, ali and others for saving my life and making me see things i needed to change in my life!😊 bless you! P.s. peter breggin is a wonderful human being who is also very wise and has a lot of great insight and understanding!!!😊
I have been seeing Dr Ali over a decade he has not ever been mean or anything like the comments I have read he sits and listens to me. HE is on time with me and has me on the right meds. HE is strict with me about putting my meds up and I have been asking him to put my son's dose up a bit he does not like it and less needed. I've never had one problem with him ever the many years I have seen him. I still talk to people that say he is good he has never once made me cry ever. he diagnose me properly and I'm on proper meds.
Hi, I know what you all mean about this doctor as I was unfortunately also a patient of his for several years and all he mostly ever did when I saw him as an in patient as well as outside hospital, was laugh at my situation, call me a liar about every truthful fact I told him and belittle everything I said and did, including all of my accomplishments and be very rude, threatening at times and ridiculous. Dr ali, like almost ALL psychiatrists are only in the corrupt business their in, to harm people whom they see as weaker than themselves and the rest of society just because they see the world Mabey "differently" than the typical "Hollywood way" where it's all about very vain and gross things, like looks, money and "power" (which is their two main gods) and if you are a Christian or you have the fundamental beliefs and morals of one, then WATCH OUT!!!!!! A lot of them (not all) including everyone almost in the "system" either are free masons serving lucifer (satan) and they are against moral and God fearing people beyond rationality and they want us DEAD,,,, most of them are millionaires (only in money) and most everything they believe in, are trained to do and stand for is EVIL and SICK,,, but, like everything in life, I have also known some sweethearts that work in the system because they truly do care and strive to make a difference! It has to be tough for them!!!😕, I just bought a new bible and I get more from singing praises and reading it and trusting in and waiting on Jesus as I have sice I got saved at the age of seven, and THAT is why i'my actually ALIVE today and know true joy!!! in my heart!!!☺Psychiatrists are lost and sick people who are trained by the DSM; a silly little book that is 100% man made and invented, and has absolutely NO basis in any true scientifically proven facts and absolutely nothing at all to back it up!!! Psychiatry is and has been said by many doctors, including my family doc when I was a teenager when I was first labelled with several different diagnonseses, to be the LEAST perfect form of medicine ever studied, and never proven or backed up with any test results!!! It's all a fraud (pretend science) and has nearly killed me and many others I know so many times over that it' amazing we'really all still alive!!! And THAT is truly a miracle and something to PRAISE God for!!! I sometimes really believe there otta be a moment set aside once a year or more to have a moment of silence for all the children, teenagers and adults who have died under the "care" of psychiatry in the world, and for their left behind family and loved ones. Just because a teenager runs away from home to escape mental,, emotional and physical abuse, does not deem it necessary or right to drug them out of their brains on haldol,etc,etc,etc. THAT is what they did to me and most of the people I know, My heart goes out to all of you on this forum and everyone out there who is struggling and battling any and every kind of mental distress and devestation. YOU ARE IMPORTANT TOO AND GOD LOVES YOU SOOON MUCH!!!! Look up Peter breggin "psychiatry is more dangerous than you could ever imagine" A great singer I love whoses music always lifts my spirits and is fun to sing along with is Kim Boyce. Her songs are beautiful and very inspirational and encouraging !!!😊GOD BLESS ALL MY FELLOW TROOPERS AND SOLDIERS!!!! Hugs😊 p.s. if you are feeling really sluggish and mood swings going on, nervous, or irritable, try to get to a g.p. and get your thyroid checked! I feel much better than I did when I got on levothyroxine for hashimotto,s and low thyroid. Peace.😊
this man should br kept away from people he is abusive , He was late 1 hour apparently having lunch I was told I was wasting his time and that I was in total denial about my depression even though I was already familiar with the signs and Dr Corriveau in emergency gave a new medication with great results. If Dr Ali did not get the answer he wanted he berated me
I had no mental illness whatsoever, and this man without spending so much as 10 minutes forced me to continue with the mental health act when it was used to punish me from leaving home by my crazy parents. I'm surprised this quack is even allowed to practice still. He has no understanding whatsoever of psychology. Oh and don't tell him you're a Christian either, that's all I told him and he walked out of the room and I found out he refused to waive me. I'd claim discrimination but I have no proof other than my word against his.
