Fake Reviews Say It All show details Fake Reviews Say It All
Feb 3rd, 2015

The fact that she writes reviews of herself saying crazy people wrote negative things about her says it all. No one who has actually been treated by a doctor for mental illness would act in such a disturbing way. That a doctor who is suppose to treat people does it, is abominable. She is clearly interested in only herself, and such behavior for someone in her position can be fatal for patients. Stay away for your own good. Dr. Benjelloun puts on an act. She will only do whatever serves her interests, as is evident by these nasty comments here.

Excellent experience with video conferencning. show details Excellent experience with video conferencning.
by Marvina Ray on Dec 24th, 2014

I received an evaluation by Dr. Benjelloun while in an ER in Florida last week in the early morning time by video conferncing. Dr. Benjelloun is amazing and kind. She took her time and showed a lot of caring and expertise. That morning changed my life and my treatment. There are some scary reviews about her that are from a mentally ill persons. Guess it shows you what kind of patient's she has to work with! It amazes me.

I want to make clear that Dr. Benjelloun is crazy. These reports are not written by former patients with mental illnesses that were treated by her. They are written by people that she purposely falsely diagnosed with mental illnesses to make money and please her bosses, as well as people that have witnessed these activities (including nurses and residents). The only crime one of these people had committed was being a student. That story is a 100% true (I witnessed the whole thing), and it goes to show how she regularly operates. She never treated this student, not once did she talk to him. She simply wrote a made-up report confirming that he had threatened an official, so that the fact that he was assaulted by an employee of his University would be covered up. As one of the main nurses, I witnessed all of this. She works for the same company, and she just did what her superiors asked her to. I watched as she copied off of someone else's malpractice. Dr. Benjelloun was well aware that she was participating in illegal and immoral activities, and she did not care. I think it is very dangerous for a person like this to treat individuals who are actually mentally ill, and I want to advise people against that. Someone who knowingly terrorizes an innocent person should never be a doctor.

My 8 year old son had an evaluation over the tv with Dr. B. She was excellent. The bad reviews about her are by psychiatric patients that I she helped and do not know any better.

Supported Criminal Activity show details Supported Criminal Activity
Feb 20th, 2014

A student was assaulted by a groundskeeper at GW University. The student immediately reported the incident to the university police. An investigator never spoke to the student, so he thought they weren't handling it seriously, and had kept the employee on campus. The next day, on a Saturday, the student went to them and said he was worried about student safety, and he wanted to know if the man was off campus. The security officers threatened the student for asking this. Disturbed by this behavior, the student looked to go tell an administrator that apparently there was a dangerous man on campus. There were no offices open. The student was aware of how the University President, Steven Knapp, had said multiple times that he wanted students to come to the President's House if there was a danger to student safety, so the student did that and was excessively polite. However, the security officers arrived on the scene, claiming that Knapp told them a student had trespassed on his property and threatened him. When Knapp came out of his house, he said the student had done nothing wrong. But, then, Knapp left and the student was handcuffed and taken to the hospital. The security officers and an official from the GW counseling center told the hospital that he trespassed on Knapp's property and threatened him. The staff refused to speak to the student. Instead, since there wasn't actually any evidence, seeing as how he was innocent, so they tried to torture the student to get some evidence. They kept him handcuffed for 8 hrs. without letting him go to the bathroom, unless he would submit to a drug test. The student knew the hospital had no right to hold him, and he refused to comply with that, knowing this was the only way he would be able to go free. The torture went on until the Metro police came and said it wasn't legal. The hospital employees were told to get rid of this student, obviously because he was a liability due to the fact that he could sue the University; and, they complied by torturing that student and telling that student's family that he was a terrorist. A mistake they still haven't righted. After the incident, they covered it up and falsified a medical record. The student never did anything wrong. All he did was report being assaulted and the doctors tortured him mercilessly for it. Dr. Benjelloun works for the same company, and she kept this patient against his will for 13 days as a favor to them. When he asked to discuss why he was being held, she refused. He wasn't allowed to speak to anyone. When she released him, she wrote a report confirming that he was a terrorist that had trespassed on Knapp's property and threatened his life. At no point, did it matter that Knapp wasn't claiming the student did anything wrong. She said the facts weren't up for discussion, even though she had no knowledge of the incident. Due to help from Dr. Benjelloun, the innocent student will be labeled a terrorist for the rest of his life, just because he did the right thing and reported a dangerous man for assault.

The bad reviews are the accurate ones. She won't listen to you. She just tries to keep the beds full and force people to seek business on a permanent basis. She is a disgusting creature.

Won't Speak to You-Just Wants Money show details Won't Speak to You-Just Wants Money
Jul 24th, 2013

Beware. Almost all these good reviews are written by Georgetown Hospital employees. I was under her care for ten days. During the entire time she refused to speak to me, or let anyone else. Every time I tried to talk to her she said "nothing I said mattered." I wondered how she could diagnose me without having any evaluation, so I obtained the records, and I found he same thing as the other comment. Every word was based on another report. She had made a psychiatric diagnosis based on a medical record from another doctor. This doctor had also committed a crime against me, and Benjelloun was aware of it. She helps out other doctors. She doesn't care about her patients, and she refuses to speak to them. She commits fraud on insurance companies, telling them that Georgetown Hospital gives care that it does not. She keeps patients as long as she can. She talks about how she needs the "rooms full" so that her wing of the hospital is making tens of thousands of dollars a day. For your own good, stay away from Georgetown Hospital and Dr Benjelloun. They are just going to try to get as much money as they can, and they don't care what happens to you as a result. Even after they release you, hey don't. They try to force you to continue to go to their expensive programs. Georgetown Hospital is worse than the Gulags. I also saw someone who attempted suicide. And, even then, no doctors would speak to him. They just locked-him-up for a day, for liability purposes.

I have been to many doctors and want to make a point to review Dr. Benjalloun in particular. She was nice, calm with a warm smile. I was treated wtih respect and for a psych patient, sometimes that doesn't happen. She was perfect for me.

I recently went into Georgetown to see Dr. Benjelloun for a consultation for my medications. Dr. Benjelloun was so compassionate and had a really calming bed side manner. She knew what to do with my case immediately and without hesitation. I feel very secure with Dr. Benjelloun as my physician.
