Dr. Michael E Bohan has the following 2 specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Bohan is a condescending, pompous, dismissive jerk. In the middle of a crisis and in the midst of my addiction, he told me that he could no longer treat me since I was questioning him and not following his direction. PLEASE do not waste your time on him unless you are in complete recovery

Seems like a kindly old man but in truth he seems to think, like so many other psychiatrists, that "one-size-fits-all" when it comes to treatment for addiction. When I needed him most, he got angry that I didn't "comply" with the prescription. I was so high from the prescription I wasn't objective enough to taper. An experienced psychiatrist should understand and expect to try again and maybe again. What's it to them if you fail the first time? He said I could come back if I kicked and just be seen for depression. But his miserable staff would not let me either talk to him or make an appointment saying my "case is closed for non-compliance". I'm a 58 year old man with legitimate serious pain in several locations--not a kid just out for kicks. It's unconscionable to just abandon me at that time as if to say "go commit crime, we don't care". I told the staff member I would say this on the net and she said "do what you think you have to do". Maybe the doctor would have seen me, but those miserable staffers love their little authority and don't think or care of the consequences to the patient or the trouble it might cause legally and socially. Until then everything was courteous. Pick someone else who won't throw you to the street if you don't fit the one-size-fits-all treatment.
