Ratings for Dr. Michael J. Mahelsky
Really great psychiatrist. I've been to several over the past year. Dr. Mahelsky helped me to find a better regimen of medication, especially since my prior doctor put me on too many that gave me too many side-effects. I definitely recommend him.
Very sincere and helpful psychiatrist. Always on time, something that's not often found in medicine. The other review for 1 star is clearly someone who has never worked with this doctor before. I'll be staying with Dr. Mahelsky, even after my insurance changes and I won't have coverage with him. He's worth the extra money.
Called this doctor because I have been prescribed to a medication for my ADHD since I was 17. Immediately, he was hostile and accusatory about why I took so much of my medication. I'm from Florida and if this is how doctors in New York treat their potential patients, it's quite sad. Mental health has a huge stigma. I work for a Fortune 500 company so to have this man question why I take my medication as if I'm a child is quite ridiculous. My previous doctor who I am not seeing because he doesn't accept my new insurance had prepared all my documentation and referrals I would need to submit to my new doctor. I informed him of this and then he told me he doesn't know why I take so much medication. Well , Dr. Mahelsky, you didn't take the time to look at my documents and paperwork to see why I take the medication and quantity I do. I don't recommend this doctor at all. Reporting him to the CCHR and I advise anyone else to do the same if they have a problem with doctors who decide to judge instead of help.
