 |  Super Smart and Great with Depression  |  show details
by Aubrey on Jul 6th, 2013

Dr. Rosenfeld has treated me many times over the years. I have found he is very caring and smart. He simply knows more than many other psychiatrists about what he should.

    Dr. Rosenfeld is such a good doctor I do not think he needs any ""tips"" from myself. Keep up the good work, I am sure those you have helped value you as they should.

          Dr. Irwin Rosenfeld is a very good doctor that helps and is good with medications yet also has other good ideas to help \\rpeople improve their situation. He has been very helpful to us in our situation. I feel very fortunate that a choice was made to make him my doctor because prior to that nothing was helping and I did get seen by other doctors and psychiatrists. I find that he listens to people and I enjoy his attitude which is non condescending. Our situation is much more hopeful and life can be more fun since some changes\\rhave been made with his help. It is sad that some may miss\\rout on the chance to benefit from his expertise and the type of help he has given me just because some people seem to enjoy making lame comments like about his desk. I like his desk. The man works and because he has these files readily available to him he was able to find my file the same day I called while most doctors probably would not only not have it on hand but maybe not have it at all after some years. He also has always called me back and has a voicemail of his own where he returns calls and picks up his messages periodically this is unheard of these days. One can expect a message to call 911 if its an emergency or maybe a message can be left for the office staff to return WHEN they get in. Someone put here he did not call them back, well he has always called me back and I find that hard to believe.

              by Kenneth Hoffman on Apr 12th, 2013

              This man thinks about only one thing-money. After 53 of his treatments, I got my wife back far worse off than when I started with this man. He is a poor excuse for a doctor. Not once did he say he was sorry that my wife was not improving after twice as many and almost $20,000 worth of treatments. Even on the last day, he came into the room where my wife was being treated, didn't ask how she was doing, just gave her his last bill, and walked out. I should have known he was a lazy slob, when I first saw his pig pen of an office. I wouldn't recommend this man to my worst enemy. One of the worst experiences of my life.

              At 1st I thought Dr R & I might not be compatible & of course you want to feel comfortable with your physician. Didn't take me too long to realize he was the Dr I desperately needed. He is completely professional & it is easy to think he doesn't care or can help you with your situation. Well that is not the case at all. He is an excellent diagnostician and extremely knowledgeable about medications. He is always there when you need him, not to mention, he really has a great sense of humour. I consider that a plus. He constantly keeps informed on what new things are happening in his field of expertise. He has made all the difference in my life which is finally a happier & healthier life. Change takes time. Give him your time and I promise it will change your life just when you thought it was impossible. He should be highly regarded & respected by his peers & if he isn't by some, then those are the Drs I would'nt even condider going to see. Thanks Dr R. This review written by a grateful patient & avid Yankees fan.....! that is absolutely not the case. While he is calm & very professional, he might seem aloof & appear uncaring which is not at allthe case

              Dr. Rosenfeld did 9 procedures on me and never stuck around to see how I did. He had no idea of all the complications I had! He never asked. He has never returned 3 phone calls I made to him, including one from my real psychiatrist!! I had many questions and concerns. Guess he really doesn't care. Very unprofessional!!! I almost had an anxiety attack after being in his disastrous, cluttered office. Looks like a hoarder works there. Never saw anything like it in my life. Maybe he couldn't find his phone to call me back.

              Dr. Rosenfeld is a caring and skilled physician. He is an expert in his field, and I feel I am in good hands after searching for a well-qualified psychiatrist for quite some time. The only thing that bothers me is the clutter in his personal office as someone with OCD!His front office staff are friendly and excellent, and they always get things done in a timely manner. And, the wait time for each appointment is very short. I recommend this doctor, which I usually cannot say as an HMO patient!

              I have been to several psychiatrists due to being a fosteradoptive parent for treatment of my foster kids. When I needed a psychiatrist myself, I chose Dr. Irwin for his specialty - not knowing what I was getting in to. In one visit with him, I felt like he TRULY cared about me. He was brutally honest about my problems. He took TIME to talk to me, not just prescribe medication as most psychiatrists seem to do just be a source of drugs. I have had 28 days of sobriety thanks to Dr. Irwin. I look forward to continuing my treatment with him and I`m going to start taking my son to him as well. If you want someone who CARES - go here.

              I suffer from a severe form of Chronic Major Depression. My condition is one that requires an immense amount of work on .Dr. Rosenfeld and my part. There is a genetic component to my condition. My maternal grandfather, my mother, her siblings of which there are six as well as many if not all of my cousins and there`s 38 cousins all suffer from depression of various degrees. At this point we are all on medication. Not one of us has been able to survive without this treatment and avoid suffering a severe relapse.Dr. Rosenfeld has been my psychiatrist for the past twenty years. He has saved me from myself at least three times. I began seeing him during a particularly severe episode of depression. Over the years I have seen Dr. Rosenfeld put great care and thought in all dealings with his patients. Being in a medical position myself I know that we are not gods. And a title tells nothing about the degree of excellency of care given. However his quality of care and devotion to his profession say it all.Had it not been for Dr. Rosenfeld i would not be living the happy productive life that I now enjoy. He`s as close to being a miracle man as one can be. i am a person who doesn`t suffer fools gladly nor do I indulge in unmeaning flattery. This is a man with great medical integrity as well as being a superb doctor.I would recommend him without trepidation. I have chosen a screen name due to the nature of my occupation. if asked personally I have no reservations recommending Dr. Rosenfeld.

              I met Dr. Rosenfeld at the Genesis Behavioral Clinic located within SouthCoast Medical Center in Laguna Beach. I had suffered a nervous collapse from overwork combined with insomnia. In short, I was a wreck. His diagnosis and medication expertise brought me back to normality. He was so knowledgeable and professional that I continued to see him after release from the clinic.. His years of experience make a patient know that they are in good hands. Anyone who wants ""real"" help should consider Dr. Rosenfeld. He is without question in the top of his field in Orange County.

              I have many concerns with Dr. Rosenfeld. Several times I have overheard this doctor and his staff talk about personal patient information. He has acted inappropriately during several of my appointments, and has talked about other patient personal information directly with me. More often than not, he is running at least a half hour or more behind schedule. My personal opinion is that he keeps prescribing the same medication because it is quick and easy...even though it is not working. I also do not care for his bedside manner.
