Dr. William N Rosenthal 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.

Unskilled and terribly rude

He'll be very friendly and accommodating when trying to get you to be a patient, and is rude and belittling thereafter. I finally switched doctors after he hung up on me one time on the phone. (I was his patient! I couldn't believe it.) I should further mention that he never struck me as particularly skilled or knowledgeable; just convenient in White Plains. I strongly recommend you find someone better.

Shockingly Unprofessional

From the very first moment, Dr Rosenthal was abrupt and discourteous. During the first visit he criticized me for not answering his questions succinctly and sufficiently. I left thinking I will give him one more chance - perhaps he had a bad day. Well, my sense now is that every day is a bad day for Dr Rosenthal. My second session lasted 5 minutes. When I started to resummarize my goals for our visits he cut me off and said "don't tell me how to run my practice". I was stunned. When I responded that I had no such intention but that I thought he was being paid to listen to what I had to say, he said "just because you are paying me doesn't give you the right to treat me like sh*t". I don't consider myself difficult and have always had good relationships with other doctors and professional over the years. I have never encountered anything close to Dr Rosenthal's behavior from a licensed professional, certainly not a medical doctor. Maybe he wasn't always this way but Dr Rosenthal is an angry and defensive old man who should not be practicing.

One Star

Do not see Dr. Rosenthal--unless you want a cold, abrasive, unempathic psychiatrist who will riddicule what you say and criticize you until you cry and make way for the door-- wondering all the while how a so-called mental health professional could inflict such emotional abuse on a vulnerable person in need of help. It's incredulous to me how someone who at the very least has less of a bedside manner than Hannibal Lecter, and at his worst, causes acute emotional harm, has practiced in the mental health field for all these years. The fact that this man is a licensed psychiatrist is criminal. I wonder how many of his other former patients he made feel even worse, as he did to me. In short, he is a cruel, spiteful man who has no businesss administering therapy. Thankfully I have found a new psychiatrist who is quite helpful--a far cry from this monster!
