Very Unprofessional

Dr. Erman is very irritable and lets his mood disorder interfere with his treatment or mistreatment of patients. He should not be on the front lines treating patients.

I saw Dr. Erman for a consult, sleep study, then follow-up after a sleep study. Three visits total. I have had insomnia most of my life and this was my first visit to a sleep clinic and boy was I excited! I have been having suicidal thoughts and a profound feeling of distress do to my elevated insomnia. I spent my initial 1 hour consult explaining to Dr. Erman, that I have taken EVERY medication and holistic treatment known to man for my insomnia, to no avail. I explained that I had taken ALL the PAMS and LAMS, Xanax, Ambien and Lunesta and all home remedies etc. etc. etc. and felt "in-crisis". He is about 80 years old and I figured this man had seen it all and would be able to help me. So what does he do? Prescribes me a "PAM"....which did not work. Upon my last (3rd) visit, he says in a very terse voice...."Well I dont know what you want me to do. I have thrown the entire Pharmacopia at you!". He repeatedly got my notes incorrect and likes to hear himself talk. He is more of a "company figurehead" than a helpful Physician. This is how he treats a patient in crisis? I left, never to return....however I hear Dr. Cetel "thinks outside the box", so I may try her instead. Real "in-depth" work there Dr. Erman!
