Ratings for Dr. Bennett Leventhal
In the world of autism, Dr. Leventhal is at the top of his field. He truly cares about his pateints. If you are one of those misguided parents who think your child's autism was cuased by some vaccine, you might want to find someone else. If, however, you care about getting your atustic child or self the very best treatment then Dr. Leventhal is the right shrink for you!
Is more interested in being the superstar professor/fancy doctor than at regarding his patients as whole people. A typical psychiatrist of the (hopefully) dying breed, he hasn't learned to respect the fascinating complexity and often talents and intelligence of so-called mental patients or those who present illness in a way that is said to be "in the head". This means that he does not listen well to his patients (after all, they are "mental patients" and surely not really that worthwhile), or to look to underlying physical causes for an illness, even after, in this case, pain was mentioned again and again as a complaint. I suppose if you want state of the art psychotropic drugs, he's someone to go to (although you can get it done much cheaper and with someone who listens more carefully), likely as good as any when he decides to listen...but who really wants their life to be a never-ending series of green pills, pink pills, red pills, followed by an ever-increasing toxicity/strength?
