My life was ruined by this man. He was treating me for ADD and knew I had a sensitivity to stimulant drugs that caused tics. He assured me that if I were to try methylphenidate and got tics, getting back off of them would be all that was needed to get the tics to go away. He put me on the drug, the tics came back, I got off the drug, and the tics never went away. My life has been a constant struggle with Tourette’s ever since this man knowingly destroyed part of my brain. He tried to cover his mistakes by treating me with antipsychotic drugs (haloperidol and risperdal) that left me without emotions for three months. If I knew what this butcher was going to do to me, I would have eagerly killed myself to prevent having this man as my doctor.

I had a similar experience with this guy during one of my stints in Rivendell. All he wanted to do was put me on antipsychotics. I was a zombie and there was nothing that anybody could do as it was court ordered. I've never felt quite the same since :[

I was pregnant when I saw him. He told me that I would be nothing in life and the same for my child. I am happily married, have moved out of state where my husband now has a great job, and we are both going into the medical field. My son is a brilliant little boy who is so advanced. Could you imagine if I had believed him? How is he allowed to treat children who need help? He could push someone to end their life.
