Absolutely the worst

He continually misses due dates on custody reports, then has the temerity to ask for more money. His report is nothing more than his notes typed up, and even the events he was supposedly noting are incorrect in their details. You'd be better off hiring a sound recorder. He displays clear bias and will only ask questions that support the other person's point of view and will twist whatever you say to fit what I can only guess is the person who's paying him off behind the scenes. This so-called doctor should be stripped of his license and arrested for fraud and malfeasance. He is a pox on society.

Dr. Ravitz is a fraud.

Dr. Ravitz spends most of his time in forensic psychiatry, ie. getting paid exorbitant amounts of money for writing bogus reports on parental custody in divorce proceedings. Yes, he makes money on the misery and breakup of families. He usually writes reports not based on fact but always in favor of the parent that is miserable and vindictive, the parent that is paying his salary. Dr. Alan Ravitz is unfit to be a doctor, any kind of doctor, because he is not fair, he is lazy, and he has no empathy for anyone, including the children who are caught in the middle of the divorce.

Save Your Money!

We spend over $7,000 for him do do a custody evaluation and all he did was take notes and repeat them word for word in the report. Besides for the $600 an hour to take the notes, he charged another $3000 just to "write" the report. He never bothers getting to the underlying issues, he's just a scam artist who really does nothing more than "copy and paste"

WHAT AN IDIOT!

This doctor has no care or interest in children. He has no heart and no skills in the area he chooses to call his "job". Hes very good at writing down exactly what his clients tell him and he calls that his REPORT! HA! NEVER NEVER USE THIS DOCTOR. He is narcistic freak and would greatly benefit from the medication he so freely administers to his young clients. What a wast of time.

His personal biases

I strongly urge caution when using this physician. Dr Ravitz does not and will never take hard positions to confront serious mental health issues with his patients. He prefers to be an outsider giving generic advice and nothing more. He will even admit to falsifying a psychiatric report simply to avoid confronting the mental health issues of his patients.

Phenomenal Psychiatrist

Dr. Ravitz is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced psychiatrist. His diagnoses and medical treatment have been completely accurate. We've had a very complex case with multiple medical components, and he has addressed every one and has known how to balance the medications given the other illnesses. His bedside manner is impeccable. He is always reachable for emergencies. An exceptional doctor.
