Ratings for Dr. Eric Prost
This doctor was a nightmare. At the time I was referred I was pregnant and told he specializes in pregnancy and mental health. While waiting for my appointment I had been talked into termination. When I attended my appointment, he made no acknowledgement to the fact that the entire experience had obviously set me back. To conclude my first and only appointment with him, he cut my anxiety meds cold turkey and switched my remaining medication. He wrote the prescription wrong and if I hadn't trusted my gut, I would have been taking twice the intended amount! It took almost 4 days for me to get clarification from him. I suffered a major relapse as a result of my circumstances and the complete lack of any kind of concern or help from him. Zero compassion, bedside manner, etc. Knew nothing about my history and had clearly not reviewed any notes whatsoever prior to my appointment.
What a terrible experience with Dr. Prost. Very incompetent to the point of being negligent. Uncaring, indifferent. Not only didn't help me, but the experience effected me in many negative ways. Was not only not helpful, but made remarks that were very questionable. Like another poster on here, I have not received a proper diagnosis either. I have no faith in his abilities to diagnose or treat anyone and have found other patients with similar complaints and bad experiences. I urge everyone to complain to his superiors and the hospital, and to file formal complaints against him where warranted.
Dr. Prost is a fantastic psychiatrist. I've gone through many and I finally found one that I feel comfortable with. He genuinely cares about you and has a great bedside manner. He has been by my side through a very difficult time of my life and is patiently working with me to find the right treatment.
I have been seeing Dr Prost for nearly 2 years now and still do not have a diagnosis. The last time I saw him I asked him point blank for a diagnosis and he changed the subject without even acknowledging my request. I am trying everything I can to get in to see a different psychiatrist as I'm obviously not getting anywhere with Dr Prost. I'm not impressed at all by him and I intend to follow up my complaints for the medical board as I've been prescribed the highest dosage of my medication for over a year without a diagnosis of what the problem actually is
I really felt that he wasn't listening to the pain and suffering I have been going through. He politely stood up and open the door making me feel certainly dismissed. I felt totally lost and alone after leaving his office. I feel like I have no where to turn....
I have had a family member with Autism who has seen Dr Prost. While I respect his knowledge base on general psychology, I am not convinced that his knowledge base on the relationship between Autism and various mental health issues is as in depth as it could be. This is not a specific criticism of Dr Prost, it is more an acknowledgement of the lack of professionals skilled in the specialty area of mental health and Autism. In Canada we are limited in resources for these individuals.
The Best Psychiatrists in Kingston and in Ontario. I have the best service and always; i never had to wait weeks for a document, exampled, an insurance document, etc. Also every appointment i have with him in the lat 4 years, he ALWAYS, treated me with dignity and respect. I think that it is interesting to pin point,that his secretary is as humanistic as Dr Prost is! I newer felt a burden, or a garbage when I needed help from them, unlike other ones.
I met with Dr. Prost once and he made a deeply favourable impact on me. I found him to be the best psychiatrist that I have ever met and this is after just one visit. I spoke the entire session and I am a very shy person I have never felt so comfortable in the presence of any other pschiatrist.He knew the exact time to ask a question. He treated me with respect. He attentively listened and I did not feel rushed in any way. I would highly recommend Dr. Eric Prost.
