Ratings for Dr. R. Steinberg
I've seen this doctor several times throughout my life and he has never actually helped. If you visibly show erratic/crazy symptoms he will not help you, to him it probably seems like we have "control" over our emotions but we really and honestly don't and he looks down upon the mentally ill, especially the ones who cannot take care of themselves because he thinks it's a "choice" and not just that our brains are messing with us. He doesn't seem to have an actual grip on mental illness and what it's like to have one. He only respects you if you respect him like an authority/superiority, but like I said, if you show visible craziness/unstable emotions he won't help at all.
He did not help my son at all. He is an adult now and his advise left him thinking no one cared. He told my husband and I infront of my son and a room full of social workers, cfs, etc. That at 15 he could quit school if he wanted and there was no way to stop him if he wanted to kill himself. He did not refer us to anyone for further help and as a result he quit school and overdosed on the ritalin prescribed, damaging his liver and causing him to have extensive surgery. He is still messed up
DR.Steinberg is not a doctor i would advise anyone to send a patient to.Doesnt care about the patients well being,rude,considers himself better than anyone else in the room.Doesnt ask if you will let other people hear your reason for seeing him.brings in other staff members into the room .i find him to be one of the worst doctors my child has ever gone to see.He should consider going back to med school to learn on how to have respect for patients,learn how to be a real doctor.I would strongly recommend people to seek help some where other than this sham who calls himself a doctor.
Did not take me seriously, even though I had attempted suicide prior to being referred to him. Had a trainee taking notes in a "confidential" appointment, and said I "clearly hated myself" and yet his only advice was to "take up karate or something" absolutely unprofessional
I am completely disappointed in Dr. Steinberg. My son has seen him going on 4 separate occasions and each time blows us off like there is nothing wrong when clearly there is. He keeps recommending a program that doesn't work for my son without viewing, discussing or giving any other options. My son has been in his "care" for several years now with the situation getting worse with Steinberg's utter disregard to my son's condition. I would NOT recommend seeing him.
