Complete and total unprofessional. As soon as I walked in, he insulted me for bringing personal notes, saying that "he would be running this and my desires are not at all a factor." When I attempted to go through the symptoms I wanted diagnosed, he cut me off several times saying it wasn't relevant information to my case. I was specifically referred to him to discuss these symptoms, which I pointed out is stated nearly verbatim on the referral document. He laughed and said "Stop interrupting me, you are in my clinic and will answer my questions." This bothered me, but I had to accept it. After all, the issues I’m facing are currently life-threatening, and affect my entire life to a dangerous and painful degree. So I continued on, and when I brought up the fact that I wasn't sure how therapy would help me, said "That is for me to figure out, I am better at this than you." and refused to answer the question. So…okay? Again, I need the help… Kept making references to his rules, stating that if I broke one of them he would abandon my case and refuse further service, and also refuse to refer me to anyone else. I found that disgusting, like he was holding my well-being hostage. That one slip up could mean months or even years down the drain? It's incredible he's stayed in business so long. It was a highly upsetting experience, to be insulted and belittled when I'm facing several serious and emergency mental issues. Furthermore, he prescribed me a drug that is not only not relevant to the issues I discussed with him, but also incredibly dangerous to a person with my condition. I spoke to my G.P. immediately after, and the doctor was confused and concerned as well, since he had been the one who had both recommended me for specific issues, and also knew I did not want to seek out medication until I was properly diagnosed Handing out dangerous prescriptions and medication without any thought to the client or patient’s well-being is horrible. I have recommended to the person that referred me to speak to him personally about his behaviour, but it is likely he won't be getting any new clients anytime soon. And, on the basis of his prescription, I am seeking to take this a step higher so he doesn’t hurt anyone else.

Every person has their own perception and judges his therapist according to their own projections.

Dr. Yaroshevsky is treating me for personality development and relationship issues. He is a caring, patient and very experienced physician who does everything that he can do to help me get better. His treatment works; I am a different person. I feel this way and people around me tells me this. I would highly recommend Dr. Yaroshevsky.

I am recovering in my therapy with Dr. Felix Yaroshevsky; from the consequences of my traumatic upbringing. If my late parents were made aware of their role in my difficulties, I am sure they would be upset and indignant. A couple of comments below made this obvious to me. In one of these comments, a disgruntled parent wrote, "my kids asked me are we going back to see the Dr.? I said No." I feel very sorry for these children. Judging from my experience, it is sad that these children were not allowed to continue their therapy with Dr. Felix Yaroshevsky.

The preceding revue is obviously authored by disgruntled father, who didn't like the fact that his role in the problems of his son was made clear to the family and even himself. There are a couple of similarly generated reaction in these comments.

Dr. Yaroshevsky's has not empathy or care. How in God's name this guy post himself a therapist? I spoke to a another psychiatrist that was in the same graduating class when both were students and I was told he was a gynecologist in Russia but when he came to Canada he took this course to get work, but while in class he was always very disrupted and show not control of his emotions. I have phoned him after researching his tapes in the Internet and I had big hopes that he will help in my family issues. When I asked for his services and told me his services were covered by OHIP but when we met together with my son, for the first interview the meeting lasted it only 5 minutes and we were referred to 2 of his staff’s. My son and I got two business cards to make our own appointments with the referred therapists. The so call “therapists” were not psychologists and one of them barely spoke any English. Neither of the so call therapist accepted OHIP so they charged for their services since neither of them where Psychiatrist. My son paid for 4 sections with his therapist at what point he was convinced by these sections that I was the problem in the relation and that he was better off to keep me away, according to my son, those were the therapist’s words. I could not afford paying for any of the services so I was left with no help hopping my son will bring me, into some king of meeting with his therapist instead the relation got worse with my son and lost future contact with him. I was in such disbelief of what transpired that I decided to call Dr. Yarosheysky and I asked for an explanation and the only thing I got was his arrogant and dismissed attitude. I was offended but his luck of empathy. He wouldn’t listen to any of my words, he kept interrupting. This guy is condescending and has lots of personal unresolved issues. He hanged the phone on me. This guy needs more help than I. Please be aware.

He is a life saver. First time I saw him I thought he was insane, not me, but my life was such a mess, I figured I had nothing to loose. Two years later my life, my relationship with myself, my family, my job, and how I perceive life and am able to enjoy it are completely transformed. He saved my family and helped to see the destructive behavior and beliefs in my life. And I was a lot less messed up than some people I know to begin with.

My experience with Mr. Yaroshevsky was beyond unpleasant. Please, do not waste your time with this man; he is quite unstable and it affects his competence quite a bit. He has a lot of personal issues and takes it out on his patients. I have come to him years before with my family and he was very rude and patronizing. It took only a few consultations until he threw a tantrum right in his office and my wife and I left immediately, never looking back.
