Ratings for Dr. Philip Reid
I have been seeing Dr Reid for years. having been with another Psych for years before that,. i find Dr Reid caring, very knowledgeable and is not adverse to trying new drugs if he things it can help.When I first saw him I was very very depressed, without his help I might not be here now. I feel that the negative comments may come from people who expect a Dr to be God. On any given day any person may not live up to expactations but sometimes you have to ask yourself, "was it the person or the expectations. In a position now where I cannot see him for several months and to be honest, am a little anxious about that. My leaving for the Nth island for a while is not his fault of course. Ten out of ten and the staff are great.
He didn't help me or listen to my actual problem. Gave me the wrong diagnosis and advice. Told me that getting a better job would "cure" my depression. I wasn't there for depression. He downplayed all my mental health conditions and judged me on my education. Would not recommend.
Dr Reid looked after me for 6 months. In this time he listened and learned about my problems. He prescribed a few different drugs before we were happy with the result. I would recommend him to people looking for the right medication. If you need to bounce concerns and problems around I'd recommend a Psychologist.
He was awful already had his mind made up no help at all cold and judgemental his staff were not friendly. He made me wait for a good 20 minutes and gave me no help or advice very smug calculating distant no re pore blank didnt care or listen to what was said as already had his answers. made me feel worse and more stressed depressed and anxious .
Saw this for about 6 month both inpatient and outpatient. In that time, i only got worse suffering Depression, anxiety and PTSD. Was told to go to hospital for 'respite' but was already too unwell and needed actual treatment after 3 months of a depressive episode, 2 suicide attempts, losing my job, and dropping out of uni, i was told i just 'need to live the community' He couldn't understand, even with all the trauma; why i just didn't want to live. Told me i just had to 'choose to live'. Didn't ever say much through sessions. When i asked about diagnosis/treatment he never gave a clear explanstion. Wrote some things down for him as he made me feel uneasy and weeks after writing them, claimed he hadn't read them yet. Got a secobd oppinion contradicting his views, for me to get treatment, but he wouldnt give me a chance. Decided instead to discharge, leading to the second suicide attempt. Honestly would bot reccommend him. He did nothing for me over 6 months. No paperwork. No diagnosis.
