Specialties

Dr. Irina Kiblitsky 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.

Stay Away

I've visited two of the doctors affiliated with the Revived Soul Medical P.C. clinic owned and operated by Dr. Irina Kibilitsky M.D.. I met with Dr. Edward Shalts on 12/21/17 at the 350 Fulton Street location in Brooklyn and Dr. Avraam Pipko on 1/24/18 at the 1901 Avenue P location in Brooklyn. Both visits started out in a similar vein. I was asked how I was and when I said fine I was immediately told there’s no way I could be fine based on the anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medications I’m currently taking. I explained to both doctors I’ve been on these two medications for 2 years now and am happy with this regimen. The fact that I feel fine most days is a testament to these medications contributing positively to my mental well being. Neither man had much interest in anything I had to say about my own condition and instead just took the opportunity to condescendingly explain what they think is best for me and why I should no longer be on my anti-anxiety medication. Dr. Pipko was the worst offender of these two doctors. Every time I tried to explain how my anti-anxiety medication helps me–klonopin for the record–he countered by telling me exactly how he believes it isn’t helping me. When I told him I take the medication roughly every 5 hours to help relieve stress and/or anxiety he told me it only increases stress and/or anxiety. When I told him it helps me focus he told me that’s not possible and in fact it diminishes one’s focus over time. Again, he showed no interest whatsoever in what I had to say regarding my own physical and mental wellbeing, barely listened to me, occasionally interrupted me, and generally made me feel incredibly uncomfortable and unwelcome. This was the first–and obviously last–time I’ve ever met with Dr. Pipko. While I understand he’s a professional in this field, I believe there should be more of an actual conversation between doctor and patient. As I said, I’ve been on this exact regimen of meds for 2 years and am very clearheaded / self-aware when it comes to my physical and mental state. I’m also an adult. I expect to be treated with more respect than I was and to be listened to. Dr. Pipko seemed so intent on dissuading me from taking klonopin at all that eventually he conflated my need for the relief it provides me from anxiety to addiction (despite the fact that my medical records clearly show I have no issues with addiction or substance abuse). To be clear, I would in time like to gain enough skills and tools for coping with anxiety that I no longer need to take anti-anxiety medication and only need antidepressants for the clinical depression with which I’ve been diagnosed. To this end, I’ve been seeing a Cognitive Behavior Therapist who has helped me tremendously in dealing with everyday anxiety. I explained all this to Dr. Pipko, but again he had no interest in anything I had to say. Our visit culminated when he compared my usage of anti-anxiety medication to that of a junkie shooting heroin for relief. This is so unprofessional and wrongheaded as to border on the unethical. I’m not exactly sure why Dr. Pipko is even working in the mental health industry if he has no apparent compassion or interest in his patients. Visiting him was a humiliating experience in which he seemed intent on deliberately stigmatizing me for my mental health needs and just outright dehumanizing me. If this wasn’t deliberate Dr. Pipko should have enough awareness to understand the consequences of his actions. Luckily, I’m confident in the path I’ve chosen towards wellbeing and ultimately am merely angry at being treated so poorly by the members of this clinic. My fear is that someone like Dr. Pipko has or will meet with a patient who is far more vulnerable and/or confused about their wellbeing than myself and misdiagnose them, scare them away from the sort of treatment they need or in some way put them in an even more vulnerable position. My friends and family and therapist are absolutely appalled by the experience I had here and I’d advise anyone looking for help to stay away from this clinic.

Be carefully!!!! She will send your lab to a very expensive place that will overcharge you for a regular test. Do not trust what they say, they will try to convince you that the company will accept your insurance company. Sooner or later her lab company will sell the overcharged fee to a collection Lawyer office.

Dirty, sketchy, rude

I arrived at Doctor Kiblitsky’s office and was immediately uncomfortable because of how dirty and chaotic it was. Every one behind the counter, even people in scrubs, were eating Burger King and yelling and talking with each other. Patients in the waiting room were routinely walking up and arguing about how they hadn’t been seen yet. One man in scrubs drinking what looked like a Dunkin donuts frappe was intermittently yelling across the room at random waiting patients(including myself): “Are you interested in pain management?!” It was dirty and there were papers everywhere. Total chaos. I go up to check in and the woman before even looking at my insurance, tells me I will be paying $150 for the appointment if my deductible hasn’t been met. I don’t have a deductible for in network specialists, only a copay, but she condescendingly tells me I do and I have to pay $150. I force her to call my insurance, who tells her my copay is $35 and I do not have to pay a deductible. I pay the $35. I sit down to wait in what has now turned into a waiting room of what seem like random drug addicts and then 10 minutes later I am told they will be taking a urine sample before I can see the doctor. They do this because if you are taking “illicit substances” the doctor may not prescribe you medication, even normal medications that are not controlled substances. I’m almost 100% positive this is illegal, because if every psychiatric patient who had THC in their system couldn’t get anti-depressant pills... that would seem like a problem to me. At this point I am so sketched out and so not interested in this doctors office getting any more money out of me or my insurance, that I asked for a refund and left. Every one was rude the entire way through, mainly the woman at the front desk. Like most other doctors offices, they should call to confirm your insurance and notify you of extra costs before you arrive. If their office “policy” is urine tests for every single patient, which I’ve never heard of in my 7 years of visiting psychiatry offices, they should inform their clients in advance. This place is sketchy, dirty, and poorly run. Never again
