Ratings for Dr. Michael Elterman
Report is full of mistakes, he must cut and paste from other reports, takes phone calls while you are with him. Sadly he is very biased towards men, he does not have children’s best interest. In it only for the money and produces sloppy reports.
This is a “doctor” that men hire to take custody of their kids away from the mother and everyone knows it. First, he shows up 45 mins early expecting me to be home, I wasn’t and he should t have expected me to cater to him. Then he sits in my house and accuses me of a bunch of stuff my extra said. Then gets mad at me when I call him out on his process. I knew he was full of it and told him so and he didn’t like it. No way I’m kissing his butt!So of course his report recommends that my ex have custody, which was total bull as he’s a drug user and his family is abusive. The judge in my case was extremely intelligent and saw through his report and sided with me. This guy even had the nerve to say that because I have more than one child, I can’t give attention to them all! Have your references record their conversations with him as he lies about what they said. I’m glad he charged my ex 15,000$ for a report that got thrown out. At least one bad ex didn’t get his way in exchange for money.
Dr. Elterman lived up to his respected reputation. You get what you pay for, his expertize. We checked on other professionals that provide s. 211 reports and Dr. Elterman was in the same cost range but his credentials far surpassed others that do this same work. Dr. Elterman was focused on the children, not us the parents and the outcome was best for the family whether we as the parents agreed with his recommendations completely. I hope to not need further s. 211 reports but should we, I would like Dr. Elterman to.
Dr Elterman Lied on his report. He wrote about scratches on the arm of my child and chest but I have photos showing from that day there was no scratches on any parts of the body. A critique by another Physiologist shows extreme biases was given to part who paid for the report to be done. There was many typos and errors of fact in his report as well.
Once I got over the shock of realizing I wasn't being pranked or on candid camera, I knew by his misogynistic attitude that I was in danger of losing my case. Myself and my son fled my abusive ex and went thru extensive counselling to recover...only to be re-traumatized by this alleged professional by his ineptitude and disregard for our safety. He has an archaic, caveman mentality that holds mentally ill bullies in high esteem... projecting much doctor? Thanks for buggering up the real victims. Karma is inevitable.
Dr Elterman administered (by this I mean handed me poorly copied basic psychological tests that would be easy to skew if you were dishonest) some tests and gathered information from people (could not be family). When the report was returned Elterman used all family (ie people who had the most to gain or lose) for my ex. He also swallowed hook, line, and sinker all the lies my ex told. Needless to say he assessed shared custody was best. My daughter suffered abuse for years (physical, psychological, financial....) and still does. Visits stopped as soon as she was old enough to stop them outside of court. Elterman’s report was full of bias (esp against women who don’t play victim) and very poorly completed report. It is a shame that such a thoughtless man has so much influence on children at risk 🙁
