One Star

I found Dr. Diane Culik to be very insensitive and very unprofessional and inadequate about her diagnosis...she frightened the patient with a ridiculous diagnosis in regard to the symptoms, requiring more testing (out of pocket) and a possibly dangerous prescription to a pregnant woman. She even admitted that it could harm the fetus. (An herb). She uses a lab that, according to the State of Michigan ,Infectious Disease, is under great scrutiny for its misdiagnosis of lab reports especially Lyme Disease. According to a number of Infectious Disease Doctors that we visited after her MIS diagnosis for Lyme Disease, she completely misread the lab reports and was very naïve about her diagnosis. Even so, she continued to suggest all members of the family get tested(again, out of pocket...no insurance). Not only did we waste time, and money, but she certainly scared a pregnant woman unnecessarily...telling her that she probably had Lyme and she could miscarry and if not , have an autistic baby....we are furious with this doctor and would never recommend her to anyone. SHAME on her for causing a young , vunerable ,pregnant woman and her family such emotional stress.

She doesn't accept ANY insurance??????

Why not? People should be able to use their insurance instead of paying in cash, especially senior citizens who want to work with this doctor but can't afford to pay high fees out of pocket. This policy needs to be changes out of fairness to all potential consumers/patients. Low rating because I couldn't get in to see her because of this unacceptable billing policy!

A Waste of Time & Money

I disagree with the rest of these reviews. My experience with Dr. Culik was maddening! I can only assume that the other patients were not getting adequate treatment in the traditional medical field. Therefore, they were much relieved to find an open-minded MD willing to dispense Armour & natural treatments. As far as the handouts she gives out, I followed the advice on one of them & then sought clarification from her. She had no idea what I was talking about! How can you hand a patient a medical pamphlet & not know what it says??? But my chief complaint about Dr. Culik is the lack of an accurate diagnosis. She kept insisting that I had Lyme Disease though I assured her that was highly unlikely. Moreover, my illness had a specific source and occurred immediately following that source. I then asked her why she was focusing on Lyme Disease as the source of my symptoms. She then performed a quack procedure on me, The Muscle Response Test, and used it to 'diagnose' me with Lyme Disease! She then insisted that I get a spinal tap to confirm her diagnosis. (Of course, it came out negative) I was unemployed at the time she asked me to get the expensive spinal tap. I pleaded with her to check my adrenal glands instead (that ended up being part of my illness). I started crying and told her my medical insurance was running out & that it was imperative to get tested now while I had coverage. She walked out on me & made it clear that my appointment time was over. So I was crying as I checked out. Unlike the others, I did NOT find Dr. Culik to be caring nor knowledgable. Even when I spoon fed her my diagnosis she was adamant that it was something totally unrelated. I would not recommend her to others. I saw Dr. Culik several times for nearly a year and it just prolonged my illness.

More about Dr. Diane A Culik

"" I grew up in Livonia, Michigan and attended Stevenson High School. I graduated in 1968 as Valedictorian. I attended Michigan State University for College and Graduated with a BS in Zoology. I also was in the Honors College and received a Phi Beta Kappa. I attended the University of Michigan for Medical School and graduated in 1976. I did a Residency at St. John Hospital in Detroit from 1976-1979, and was the chief resident in 1979. After finishing Residency I stayed on and taught Residents and Medical Students as Associate for the Department of Family Practice. I later became the Program Director for the Residency Program and became Board Certified in Geriatrics besides Family Practice. I always emphasized prevention and health maintenance to the residents I taught. I was continually searching for ways to improve health for my patients as well as myself. During this time I had my 2 children. Josef was born in 1979, just after finishing Residency, and Anna was born in 1981. I never really pursued Alternative or Complementary Medicine until I was informed by a Nurse I know about Magnets. She told me they had taken care of a severe problem with her thumb that several specialists and $3800. in treatments hadnt helped. I never would have tried them or learned more if it hadnt been for a problem I had with severe daily head and neck aches which I was unable to manage with any traditional treatments. Out of desperation I agreed to try my first magnet and had almost immediate relief. Since then I have been much more open to learning and trying new therapies, often after suggestions from patients or other practitioners. I have come to realize that there are many health options that are safe and effective that have not YET been accepted by the traditional medical community. I am not willing to wait 10 or 20 years or more for massive double blind placebo studies, when people need help right now. I have also been in Medicine long enough, and learned enough about Medical history,.to know that what the Physicians and Scientists believe and practice TODAY, may often be quickly disproved. I know these new technologies have worked for me and hundreds of people I know. I know 40 million people across the world have used Magnetic Technologies with good results and never once a medical-legal problem (lawsuit). There is no pill available today that is completely safe or without risk. In fact, the 4th leading cause of death in America is from side effects or complications from prescribed medications. Magnetic Technologies are safe AND effective. We all owe it to ourselves and our friends to know about these options. 1965-1968 Stevenson High School Livonia, MI Valedictorian 1968-1972 Michigan State University East Lansing, MI BS Zoology, Phi Beta Kappa 1972-1976 University of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI 1976-1979 St. John Hospital Detroit, MI Family Practice Residency 1979- Chief Resident Professional Experience St. John Hospital Residency Program Detroit, MI 1979 1989 Assistant Program Director 79-83, Program Director 83-89, Vice-Chairman FP Dept. 86-89 Publications 1997- Pointe Family Physicians, Grosse Pointe, MI Private Practice Partnership 1998-current Full Time Office: Private Practice Partnership Edelweiss Family Physicians 21501 Kelly Rd.
