Ratings for Dr. Brian Scarth
He was very knowledgeable and approachable and the most important honest. At first I was skeptikal since he was Psychiatrist and I thought he would just see me for 10 minutes and push some drugs on me, but he listened to my concerns and suggested best treatment options that involved coping strategies and medication options if needed. He was very attentive, and respectful.
I didnt want to see this psychiatrist but was forced to by my employer. It was a very stressful process but at least he made it as painless as possible and it really seemed like he was trying to give an honest opinion and not just side with the person paying him. His office staff in Crescent Beach are great. I would go and see him if he also saw patients for treatment but unfortunately he doesnt.
I am on disability for depression. I was forced to see Dr. Scarth or have my benefits discontinued. This doctor was kind, compassionate and genuinely cared about what I had been through. He was not judgement at all. He listened attentively to me. I left feeling supported.
I was admitted to Royal Columbian Hospital for depression. Dr. Scarth showed compassion and listened to what I had to say. I felt supported and knew I was in good hands. I have seen many different different doctors and can say that Dr. Scarth is one of the best.
I was admitted to the psych ward for a panic attack RCH. met dr scrath the first day, told him I smoked weed and thats all. after 24 hours of waiting he told me I was certified by the mental health act, I replied saying I want a lawyer I am not a harm to myself or anyone else. the next morning I was discharged, with a prescription for hardcore antipsychotic's ... This guy was unwilling to treat me as a victim of a simple panic attack ..tried to get me lock away for doing nothing illegal. Say the word LAWYER to this man and he becomes a trust fund baby in survival mode to protect his money, Forgetting his reputation as a health professional is at risk.
I saw him once in his office, he was 30 min late. He was mean, rude, manipulative, disrespectful. He interrogated me entire visit. Popping many questions without letting me answer to them. His was arrogant and tried to provoke me to have outburst of any kind but his methods did not work on me. I dealt with many doctors in my life, he is only one to be extremely bad-terrible. I suggest to have witness of family or friend for his appointment. He was not honest and his intensions were harmful. I regret not leaving during visit and requesting another doctor. Best advise to avoid him, he does not care about own behaviour or attitude. If he misbehaves or acts in bad manor, then leave or ask for new doctor. I would not trust his opinion after what I saw.
