Dr. A D Monheit has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Didn't Seem to Care
Self-verified patient of Dr. A D Monheit - Posted on November 9th, 2018
He one of the rudest people I've ever met, which was obvious immediately in his manner when he called me into his office. He seemed impatient, bored with me, interrupted me when I tried to answer him, and my answers seemed to almost irritate him. His attitude made me feel small, and this is a man from whom you need at least a little bit of warmth in the vulnerable situation of depression. When my appointment was over he said "Have a good day," dismissing me and making me realize he wasn't even going to get up and walk me out of his office. I had to get up, open his door, and leave while he sat there. I've never tried to get help from a psychiatrist before, and now I have to find someone else because I can't imagine going back and being treated like that again.
Doesn't Give a SH*T
Self-verified patient of Dr. A D Monheit - Posted on April 24th, 2018
I've been on medication for serious depression for a long time. Believe me when I say Dr. Monheit should NOT have a practice anymore. He said TO MY FACE that he could not change my medication and that anti-depressants weren't some "magic pill that makes you happy." Like I was a 12 year old who thought a pill could make me happy, and not a severely depressed adult with over a decade of medication, therapy, and everything else under the sun. Last week I CRIED WITH RELIEF because I found a new psychiatrist who cared, listened, and assured me that he could help me taper off my outdated antidepressant, which is now known to have horrible withdrawal symptoms and not much benefit as compared with better, newer medications. Dr. Monheit made me feel like my depression was a sign of me being lazy, that I wasn't trying hard enough, and that this would be my life forever. The new psychiatrist I'm seeing is named Dr. Javier G. Taboada, MD and he's also a neurologist at a nearby hospital. I strongly recommend everyone to stay clear of Monheit unless you want someone to treat you like a piece of crap.
Poor Patient Care
Self-verified patient of Dr. A D Monheit - Posted on January 6th, 2018
Based on his tenure and training, I expected a higher quality of care. I later found out that Monheit works at several offices one day a week and does not make patient care a priority. Dr Monheit spent 20 minutes to process an evaluation. He also changed my diagnosis without telling me after evaluating me for only 20 minutes. I later found out from my insurance company who would not fill a prescription that his own office wrote Monheit claimed not to receive any messages left with staff..
Monheit Not Right
Self-verified patient of Dr. A D Monheit - Posted on June 23rd, 2016
As I waited over 45 minutes for my name to be called, my leg began to shake, sweat saturated my palms and my face became intensely warm; impatient is an understatement at this point. Luckily for my own sanity I was able to calm myself and assess the situation. The world doesn't revolve around me and my problems...deep breath. It's been rough that's why I'm here. Relax. Once my name was finally called and I was seated in Dr. Monheit's office; I simply inquired about the normal wait time, after all this was our first visit, he's getting to know me and vice versa. His immediate response was "Maybe you should see someone else." Dr. Monheit perhaps you should seek therapy and see someone based off your 1.5 star rating. Your ethics are not qualified to evaluate anyone's mental health.
Shady pill pusher
Self-verified patient of Dr. A D Monheit - Posted on May 23rd, 2016
Front desk staff are friendly. I was new to the area and needed a new therapist and psychiatrist. A friend mentioned his office, so I gave it a try. They require an intake appointment before a follow-up with the psychiatrist. This seemed odd as I had always experienced the opposite. The therapist didn't seem to listen to me or take many notes on my issues. They also repeated the same questions several times during same visit even after I had answered said questions clearly multiple times. They instead focused on the obscure details rather than the more relevant issues I was having. Once I finally saw Dr. Monheit 3 weeks later, he seemed to just crank through patients as quick as possible. I saw 4 people cycle through in the 30 minutes while I waited to be called in. Once there and after months of follow up visits he refused to provide refills and essentially forces you to have monthly follow up for medications that aren't even controlled substances. If they were, I would have understood, but once on maintenence levels it's unnecessary. It's became obvious after a few visits that he is a pill pusher and is playing the insurance co-pays by forcing monthly visits. Ten patients an hour is very lucrative after all. This was validated by the high number of college age people in waiting area what he is pushing more that anti-depressants. Very wide eyed and for lack of a better word, strung out looking. So, if you want amphetamines my bet is this is the place for you. If you want quality care with a Dr. who will be insightful and give you more that 5 minutes of their time, go elsewhere.
