Ratings for Dr. Barry Miller
I believe Dr Miller needs to take more time and LISTEN to what his patients are telling him. Just because I was in psychiatric ward in Windsor does not mean I don't know what my body is telling about the medications I am being TOLD, not asked to take. Phyciatrists in general do NOT have the ability to get inside and know what's in a persons head. My experience over years has proved that all the medications, pills upon pills and pills to counter act pills cause more harm than good for ME. Each person is different. The facility I am going to on Sept 14, Homewood Health Care as a total different outlook on mainstream medicine. They work to take you off ALL unnecessary medication so patients can think with a clear mind and focus on their illness. Imagine DR Miller telling me I must take shock therapy or he may consider discharging me from hospital, even though I was still suicidal when I was forced to leave because I refused to take pills that were harming me. Something about sending electricity through my brain just made no sense. It reminded me of the Frankenstein movies. I'm reading the comment below where the person mentions "He is not a pill pusher" That certainly was not the case when I was under his care. I now think clearly and am on no medications that alter my thinking process and do not harm me as those did. Loss of balance falling on my face, impotence, double vision, just to name a few. Oh, but we can give pills so you don't fall on your face quite as hard and then pain killers for when you do smash your head off the floor..........WOW!!!!!!!.............My brother committed suicide while under this man's care. I check out doctors who I feel don't have my best interest in mind so I found out why this Doctor can no longer practice medicine in Manitoba. You may want to look it up for yourself. College of Physicians and surgeons. I plan to hold those accountable for my brothers death. The Prosecutor and my brothers Defense Attorney who decided to "make an example of this man and send him to prison for 2 years because HE WAS SICK. You Men of the Law are going to pay for what you did to my brother. On a positive about Dr Miller, he was just as angry about what these Attorneys did without first consulting him and giving his professional opinion. For that, I say thank you Dr. Miller. You promised me you would do something about it. Have you started? IF not, will you back me if I start it? You know who I am
I think Dr. Miller is a wonderful Doctor!. He does sometime run behind (I've experiences wait times of up to 2 hours) but I do believe that we is worth the wait. He is not a pill pusher like most doctors, he actually will sit there and listen to your concerns and help you deal with them (which is why I believe he at times runs late). It is hard for me to believe the posts that state he gets angry and hostile, I have never seen him upset, he is a very kind and gentle person who very much cares about his patients. I was referred to by my OB doctor who highly recommended him. He is extremely intelligent and compassionate.
This doctor has nearly killed a friend of mine with a deadly combination of 9 drugs with 5 major interactions!!! She's completely incapacitated and has both suicidal and homicidal ideation thanks to this arsehole's fine work! If you wanted to kill her, you should have used a GUN! I hope you burn for this, you murderer!
Dr. Miller is the best Psychiatrist in Essex County and probably in all of Ontario. He is a very busy doctor and although I may have to wait for my appointment it is fine with me because I know he is being thorough and very caring. He has helped me in so many ways, and cares about how I feel and in helping me to maintain a good life in dealing with my illness. If you do as he states, after all he is the doctor, and the best, then he will give you all the time and help. If you seem not to care and do not follow instructions then how is he going to help you. Honesty is best, don't lie he can see right through you. Know that if you want the help the be honest with him, and follow his instructions with your meds. Remember he is very bust as is his staff, so be patient knowing he will give you the best of who he is, his knowledge is amazing, his intuition beyond description. Before I had Dr. Miller I was a mess, medications weren't working, nothing was helping me, until Dr. Miller. He helped me to get on the right medications, which took over a year, but mental illness is difficult to treat, but he works with you, and eventually the right medications are found. It saddens me when I read that people are trashing him, it makes me think you aren't following his directions, and maybe you are just not willing to accept Doctor Miller for who he is. If you stop fighting him you will find him to be amazing. If you are not going to listen to Dr. Miller, and get angry because he is saying what you want him to then don't waste his time, he is too busy to work with someone who won't work with him. If you want a amazing psychiatrist then Dr. Miller is for you, he has much experience, wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and with all that he is sensitive and caring for you as a whole. He is the best!
Very exceptional doctor with wonderful sensitivity, understanding and wisdom. Deals with very difficult medical problems for which there are never obvious answers. Has a fine reputation and deserves it.
Hey doctor miller I apologize for my comets earlier I was upset and should not have said what I said. It was a knee jerk decision but in retrospect your treatment of methadone has been the best I've ever received. Now that I am in Bc I definitely see that. I hope this isn't too late for my apology. You are a hard working man with a demanding job and I should have been more aware of tbat.
Thinks he is GOD. Takes people off medications without their consent. Im in so much pain and their office will not answer. I have been trying to get through all week I'm going into convulsions over a doctor not agreeing with my decision to move. Dr, you DISGUST ME.
