Downhill fast since changes to office and move ..., Mar 7, 2013
Something has happened since he joined NYU. No one answers the phones, have to call for weeks just to get a response, long wait with doc spending no time with you. This is not the level of care or service people expect from a doctor.
DO NOT GO! Read reviews on line. He is the worst!..., Mar 3, 2013
Do not go to this doctor. You will be disappointed. He was the absolute worst! He makes mistakes that cause human suffering and then he cannot even admit that he has made a mistake. Read the reviews on line. They all say the same thing!
Verbally abusive, egotistical monster with long history of drug addiction..., Feb 22, 2013
This so-called doctor runs a shoddy "treatment" center where professionals are essentially extorted for money. For $10,000 a month, for a mimimum of three months, clients enjoy daily humiliation at the hands of underqualified, detached counselors. It's like a prison, where snitching on your peers for minor infractions is encouraged and results in punishment, usually physical labor and loss of contact with your family. It creates an atmisphere that breeds paranoia and hostility, like an episode of Survivor gone horribly awry.
Dr Teitelbaum is the director/warden of this expensive little internment camp. He is incredibly arrogant, rude, and sensitive only to his own ego. Possibly the only man ever diagnosed with penis envy, he is derisive and insulting to his patients. It is an incredible abuse of power, and he is as sadistic as he is incompetent. He frequently confuses patients and their histories, and his reports read like works of fiction. I could never have imagined such an emotionally and psycholoogcally damaging environment in the name of "therapy."
Shame on Shands Hospital for allowing this to continue. Do whatever you can to avoid this physician and his treatment center. Go out of state if you have to. Avoid him and Florida Recovery Center at all cost. I sure wish I had.
