Ratings for Dr. Lawrence Terace
What could be more dangerous that a dr that is paid to undermine and lie about you. Deplorable . Did not listen and said my lack of sleep due to chronic depression was due to one cup of tea a day?.. no help and so much damage caused. I don’t know how he sleeps at night. Just a gun for hire
I saw Dr Terace in 2004 in relation to a Worker's Compensation case. Needless to say, he was the Psychiatrist Workcover had arranged to assess my claim. Needless to say the outcome was predetermined. I can't actually assess his degree of knowledge as the process was a perfunctory question answer format and over in minutes. Needless to say he found in the negative. This man is a Workcover pawn generating reports to their specifications. Simply google his name to see that his behaviour is consistent and pervasive. I bear him no malice as I knew what to expect. However, if you can, avoid this man at all cost. If you can't, take an informed representative/witness/support with you.
This Doctor is well know across Perth for declining workers compo claims. He gets paid around $5000 per consultation sent there by the insurance companies. His report only includes what the Insurer wants to hear to support them and not the individual. If we had have known this before hand we would have walked away from it all. The case manager at the insurance was grinning when she told us to read Doctor Terace's report. He only includes in it what he wants and not exactly what you tell him. Avoid him.
I seen him as part of a workers compensation claim around a year ago. I was taken back by the interview as it is methodical, clinical and formulaic as others have described. He is very intelligent but as part of a compensation claim its quite difficult to open up as its question - answer , - question answer and i couldn't add anything and it felt more like an interigation. His diagnosis i think was pretty spot on, that a year later after seeing a private psychologist and getting nowhere my parents advised i should go see him privately as it may be a different approach and we could get to the root of my problems. I called the office and asked if i could see him privately and i could get a referral. The receptions pretty much squashed me mid sentence and said Dr Terace is taking on no knew patients. I said i had seen him last year as part of a compensation claim. To which she replied again in a louder tone. He is not taking on new patents. I quicly understood this main is a Workers compensations money machine. Shame really.....
This man is absolutely useless would not know if someone has a mental illness unless they slashed their wrists in front of him. His report was absolute rubbish with most comments bent and twisted to suits his perspective, so that he keeps getting paid by insurance companies. No doubt he will be and has been responsible for significant increases in patients mental INSTABILITY. If you truly have mental health issues avoid this man completely.
This dr gives a spill at the start of appointment about being independant and does not take sides . After about 5 seconds its became strikingly obvious whos side he was on(not yours) whats even more obvious is that the multi national backed insurance companies are paying this man incredibly well so good luck trying to get a fair hearing avoid this man like the plague
All this so called Doctor is interested in is making money from the insurance companies, he does not listen to what you have to say, and his reports if you receive them are full of mistakes and are always incorrect. I wouldn't even recommend him to my enemies. Had a friend of mine how was also sent to see him wanting to commit suicide afterwards.
