I would never recommend Dr. Schottenstein to anyone. We took our 18 year-old son to him one time three years ago and he diagnosed him on the spot with bipolar disorder. This diagnosis was based on our son's responses to a one page closed-ended questionnaire comprised of less than 20 questions -- clearly not a valid instrument for assessment. After a battery of psychological tests, our son was diagnosed as having anxiety disorder and moderate major depression -- absolutely NO indication of bipolar disorder. He is now a successful, happy college student studying psychology with hopes of getting his Ph.D. and helping others who experience similar disorders. He was very upset with Dr. Schottenstein's unsubstantiated diagnosis and unprofessional manner of delivering it, as were his father and I. Dr. Schottenstein actually hindered our son's recovery and treatment as a result of his unprofessional diagnosis by providing our son with "evidence" of the ineptitude of mental health professionals. It took us nearly 9 months after our meeting with him to get our son into therapy again. Stay away from this one.

We sought treatment for our 18 year old son who was experiencing unstable moods which became life threatening. We cast about initially with a number of other physicians with out good result. We found Dr. Schottenstein though referral. He exceeds his reputation as a true expert. Dr. S. went about diagnosis in a highly systematic manner. He LISTENED carefully and paid attention. Dr. S. saved our childs life. He is what doctors should be, but all too aften are not. He is highly reponsive and accessible. It is no exageration to say that Dr. Schottenstein is the best expert your likely to find. Most of all, he is dedicated and compassionate. We are more than grateful to have him looking after our son. We could do no better.
