by anonymous former D.E.A. agent on Jul 11th, 2014

This monster is being investigated on a variety of situations presently by a former coworker of mine...divorces are a b$$ch.I've never wrote a review on anyone online before but the incoming results of "Dr." Rothstein are absolutely flabbergasting. From double- billing drug- seeking patients to strangling and torturing his soon to be ex-wife. While its unethical in every sense for me to write this; as a Christian I have a higher calling to uphold my own integrity, this is a man that truly makes you baffled that the good Lord can forgive everyone. This is a cowardly, womanizing, woman battering drug kingpin with a level of insecurity that can only be matched by his obsessive need to be validated as a man by passing out his famous go- to candy of choice Roxycodone and hydromorphone to strippers and call girls,all the while his wife who recently lost both her mother and father is a single mom. By the looks of results of my friend's investigative work this horrendous human being won't be around too much longer. My report and review to you is this megalomaniac with sociopathic tendencies will be in a jail cell with his crack smoking pill peddling friends...what gall he must have...using his neighbors to do his drug dealing....Biggest script writer in a long while...pray for this man yall he has a demon.

Rothstein is a violent man that cusses out and physically intimidates his patients. He will not prescribe medications that he doesn't get a kick back on, even if the patient is allergic to said meds. I've seen many patients just stand up, ask for their money back and leave. I would not recommend Rothstein to my worst enemy. I would rate him zero stars if that was an option.

by Ex patient with a lot of patience on Nov 30th, 2013

The man is fat and lazy, Very rude, is white but acts like he is black, likes showing videos and pictures on his i-phone instead of listening and helping patients, tries to get rid of you as soon as possible if you wont or are not able to take meds that he prescribes to get a kick-back on.. He recently went Ape-Shi* when a bunch of his patients called in saying they were getting dizzy, light-headed and sick from drug rep samples he tried to pawn off on patients for nerve pain that were in fact recalled meds all the way to straight toxins to the human body and all for that extra $$$ in his pocket..He always cusses like a sailor, then gets in trouble with his boss at Regional spine and wrist center, There was a boy that went and i met in the waiting area, he had a pretty bad limp and you could tell he tried not to show how bad he hurt..Such a young boy too and his mother told me that the dr. cussed the boy up and down threatening him with the D.E.A saying they were keeping him under watch and then all of a sudden i asked about the boy not being there because our appointments were oddly on the same day 3 times in a row and i would sit and talk to his mother mostly, she told me her son was on complete mental and physical disability and you couldn't tell it..Ladies it was the saddest thing, The boy was scarred all over because his father lit him on fire a long time ago and he was very shy But that boy talked so well of Rothstein like he had made a friend, He seemed like he stayed to himself.. Anyway turns out the boy was legally blind and couldn't drive to his appointments that is how come his mother brought him to every visit and the doctor discharged this young man because he couldn't get a ride from where he lived 45 minutes away from huntsville where the spine and wrist center is and that boy had to see a psychiatrist and his mother said he was giving up on life because he had finally felt what it was like to be relieved of his pain by rothstein and then because his mother or anyone else couldn't bring him that day due to her having to work the doctor gave up on him and i tell you know that boy is going to i hate to even think it but i know he doesn't want to live anymore. It was so hard to watch a boy of 26(i think was his age or around that) cry and hide his face after acting like his spinal disease wasn't bothering him at all and always being as kind as he could be to anyone in there. You could tell that shy boy was so scared to talk to all the pretty receptionist girls because he said his scars made him look atrocious but he felt like he had been so honest and that dr just used the d,e,a as an excuse to boot him out and the boy didnt even get a break through medication the whole time! His mother said the dr thought he was going to sell his meds but the boy turned down amphetamines for weight loss and gave up all his anxiety meds he had been on for over 7 years just to get some pain relief. His mother said that while he was to scared to associate with anyone she knew that he was doing much better and moving around and helping more around the house as if his pain/crutch had been lifted as if it were a ten ton weight were pulled off of him..The boy felt so betrayed by the dr. for just discharging him without talking to him i know it will be rothsteins fault when that boy is found hung by his kneck because he couldn't take the pain. I am crying right now thinking about he and his mom and how poor they were and yet how he spent his whole disability check coming to physical therapy and dr visits and drug screens that he always passed. I quit going after that, it was like seeing someone(the Dr.) abuse a sick, malnourished puppy when it would have been cheaper/easier to just feed him and love him. Why are there people that take a Hippocratic oath if they are only capitalist to begin with? At least that boy's mother made him record Dr.Rothstein every visit and their lawyer on retainer for malpractice said this boy is only one of 7 others this doctor has intimidated and wrongly treated but i assure you that this dr. wont care when this boy gives up on life, He tried so hard, The dr. did me wrong too but i already did a review on my behalf. That boy i am sure is only talking to a lawyer i am sure and good for him, He is known for suing the police department in his city and getting 5 officers fired, I won't say the name of his judge on here because i may wanna use him one day but that man don't play he takes jobs for a living from those who abuse their patients/citizens. Just like obama this dr should read his bible, call that erin boy back and tell him sorry and offer him back into the clinic because i saw where even though the boy couldnt drive to huntsville for his pill count he got his mother to have a pharmacist count his medicine and fax the reamainder in and erin's mother said he had all of them and i read the fax copy she had and the pharmacist said not only did erin have all his medicine but was one of the nicest people in the little town he lived in,,I bet he wont be doing toys for tots or coat drives anymore without his pain meds in that cold weather. He went to church, loved jesus and his mother cleaned houses for a living for some real snobby rich folks far out of town...heck that's why erin couldn't get a ride for his pill count by dr. rothstein because erin's father would beat erin and his mother even more if she lost her job because erin's father constantly whipped him with a whip(remember this boy is mentally hadicapped though he tries really hard to appear normal) He wouldn' t let the ladies in his physical therapy do hot stem and ultrasound on his lower back because of the whip marks and burns and scars he was so ashamed of how ugly he thought he was, but he had a heart of gold! I pray for that boy every day because dr. rothstein broke that boys last straw such as the spirit of a wild horse to where the horse wishes for the glue factory..

Very rude, very abrupt and does not instill confidence or professionalism in any way.
