This doctor's process is worse than his furniture. I went for four appointments, and each time the "ick factor" was worse than the last. Even though I had a relatively common situation (post partum depression) and knew what meds worked in the past for similiar symptoms, he let me go for a month with just some mood stabilizer that I explain was ineffective in the past. After a month of this, I explained AGAIN that just needed a Med that worked in the past, and I keep going on like this I would go nuts. He told me if I was that bad off I should go to a mental hospital. REALLY? With a newborn? And a known proven effective medication from my history? I high-tailed it to another doc, who fixed the problem right way, and I went back to enjoying motherhood.It makes me sick to hear about Mothers going crazy on their infants, because I know understand the situation with a bit more depth. And although I never felt violent or anything, whose to say really, what Dr. Knipstein and his low dose inneffective non-sense would have done over a long period of time.And his attitude was VERY condesceding, his personality seemed bizzare, and the questions made no sense. When he asked me what my mother was like and I said "kind", he appeared displeased. Then sat silent for a long time.....? I felt like asking him what the heck his mom was like.

I was treated very poorly by this man. He was rude and had no compassion. He wanted to place blame on me for my terrible past. I would not tell anyone to see this man nor did I return.

I found Dr. Knipstein's staff to be charming and helpful. In fact, this was the most effortless first time dr. visit I have ever experienced. Dr. Knipstein did exactly what I wanted and expected--discussed and prescribed medication.

My interaction with Dr. Knipstein was the worst experience of my life. He was controlling, condescending and bullying. He laughed at me. He told me I was "a bad patient." He interferred when I wanted to switch to another psychiatrist. I do not exaggerate when I say this was the worst experience of my life.
