Ratings for Dr. Michael Zaitzow
There is a reason this doctor has such bad reviews and a very low rating. When a person goes to Peace Arch Hospital they do not have a choice over which doctor will see them. Unfortunately this was the unprofessional doctor in the ER. And in my opinion negligent. I thought doctors were not to cause harm. Dr. Zaitzow is not a good doctor and as a psychiatrist it is unspeakable that he treats people in such a dispicable manner. It should not be allowed.
Dr. Zaitzow is very professional and very knowledgeable. He does not talk down to his patients and is very respectful of the patient. He has a great way of putting his patients at ease and has been very helpful to me. He never rushes you and that may cause a slight delay in punctuality - a trade-off I am very comfortable with. I am flabbergasted to read such negative reviews and have not had any such negative experience ever. I wonder if those complaints come from people who should have seen a child psychiatrist instead.
I was extremely disappointed with my appointment, he did not seem to really care at all about what was actually wrong with me just wanted to prescribe something for me and send me out, with out even really talking about what I was experiencing.
If you are unfortunate enough to see this psychiatrist, you will understand what it's like to be demeaned, laughed at, looked down on, and how uncomfortable it is to sit for an hour with a man who is supposedly helping you but is creepy, asks inappropriate questions, and totally arrogant. There should be a law against creeps like this.
This Dr. is not very good at all! He shares details of other patients..is very unprofessional.. gives electro shock therapy and then for no reason kicks you out of the hospital.. And lastly he is being closely monitored by the college of physicians...DO NOT GO TO THIS DR.. he does not understand your problems and only knows how to write up pills..I thought a Dr was supposed to help you, but now I see that he is about to lose his license it all makes sense!!
I found him presumptuous. He refused to answer questions, preferring to angrily address what he imagined to be my concerns. I was left with little confidence in his clinical judgement. The comment below is alarming. Does he share confidential information with patients?
Better to keep the young drugged and sedated than talk to them to get the true diagnosis and help they need and forget explaining what the drug will do to ease any anxiety which they are already having!! ZERO compassion for his patient and ZERO ++++ for the family who has questions about what he is prescribing!!! Ugh this is one scary Doctor!!'n
The most uncaring Dr I have come across .....he has no compassion and that is scary being his profession...we tried to ask questions and he was very dismissive which only added to our anxiety of not understanding what my son was going through
