Ratings for Dr. Richard Gorman
Dr. Richard Gorman treated me for severe anxiety and medium to severe depression right around the time of his troubles (see below). I submitted commentary to his legal representation at the time and I will say it again here. He is an excellent psychiatrist. He helped me deal with the unresolved grief and pain of my father's suicide dating back to 1996. I have nothing but kind words for him. Thank you Dr. Gorman. I hope you read this. P.
I've been seeing Dr. Gorman for several years now. He is kind and caring, and very helpful. I understand there were charges and discipline against him, but that has never negatively affected our therapeutic relationship. Basically I came to him when I was very low and he's helped me p a lot, and I'm grateful.
Hey Dr. Gorman. I'm no psychiatrist but I think that a therapist that can't resist a patient that falls in love with him is proof of a breakdown in the therapist's own private life. I think its called erotic transference which tests the therapists happiness in their own marriage. It appears that you were/most likely are very unhappy with your wife. Any why must the rating field require me to give you a minimum of 1 star. If up to me you would get 0 stars across the board.
Finally Toronto East General Hospital has gotten rid of Dr. Gorman. Vulnerable women can sleep peacefully knowing that should they need psychiatric care and are taken to the hospital, they will no longer be subjected to the sexual advances of Dr. Richard Gorman. But be advised, he still has a private practice somewhere on Spadina Road near College Street so be careful.
Toronto.
