Dr. Edward Rabinowitz has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    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.

  • Neurology

    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.

Dr. Rabinowitz was extremely unprofessional, condescending and rude, and seemed to completely lack empathy or compassion. I frequently left his office crying, and not in the way I might cry after therapy due to intense emotional discussion, but crying because I had been treated so badly. It was often a humiliating experience. He did not seem to believe anything I said to him and chose to focus on inconsequential semantics, refusing to alter his position when his assumptions were corrected. ("You are painting your kitchen navy? Navy is a dark color and therefore depressing. Therefore you must like to be depressed. Therefore you will never get better. Therefore there is nothing I can do for you.") He seemed much more interested in throwing drugs at me than talking with me, and when I expressed hesitation and requested more information (why this drug? what does it do? what are the side effects? what are the alternatives?) he would tell me I didn't deserve to get better and clearly did not want to. He was incredibly emotionally manipulative, passive aggressive, and reasonably misogynistic to the extent that I sometimes wondered if he was purposefully provoking me for some eventual greater good. I did not think it was possible for a mental health professional to have so little awareness of the emotional damage he was inflicting on the already emotionally damaged. It is frightening to me that this man is in a position of power over anxiety ridden and monumentally depressed individuals. I understand that his specialty is with addiction, and this may explain his refusal to acknowledge the validity of his patients assertions, his incredibly judgmental nature, and his need for absolute authority. Maybe this is helpful for addicts but it was very damaging for me.
