  • Waited 2 hours in the waiting. Doctor spent 30 minutes reviewing/questioning me during the visit. 
    Then won't file a claim with my insurance provider when they are saying he is an in-network provider and refuses to refund me my copay that was on my explanation of benefits from an earlier visit in the year. Ended up filing a complaint with my insurance company for his fraudulent tactics. I do not recommend his services. He is a scam artist. Refuses to take my medical insurance even though the company states he is an in-network provider.

  • Dr. Motiram seemed very friendly and concerned on the first visit.  She seemed really excited to treat me, as she suspected from my evaluation that I have ADD.  I had never heard that one before and was a little skeptical.  But it just so happened that they do ADD testing in her office on some new computer that hooks you up to motion sensors.  I was diagnosed with ADD and was initially written a prescription for Focalin, which is a stimulant.  I had to remind the doctor about my history of substance abuse, mainly stimulants, and ask if she was sure that I should take that medication.  She quickly changed to a non-stimulant medication.  That was the end of her intense interest in my case, as every other appointment took no longer than five minutes no matter what was going on.  My impression of her is she really wants to sell that test and wants you in and out so she can see as many people as possible.  I also have a problem with the testing method, which I researched and did appear to be valid.  However, it does not take into account that I took it early in the morning, when I usually am not awake (so my focus would be alittle off, right?) and does not at all take into account the possibility of side effects from other medications I was already taking (like perhaps restlessness).  I ended up stopping the ADD med, as my insurance ran out and it was super expensive, and later made the decision to stop the Effexor I have been taking as well.  Anyone who is familiar with this drug knows that this is a very delicate process, as stopping that medication can cause debilatating withdrawal symptoms.  Apparently, however, this also did not warrant more than 5 minutes with the doctor, who when I sat down already had the prescriptions written so she could rush me out as soon as possible.  I got a brief run down of how to wean off of them.  She told me to take two a day, then one, then go to every other day.  Again, anyone who knows anything about this medication knows that within 6 hours of a missed dose the symptoms begin and would be horrible within 24 hours.  Thank God I do my own research.  In short, Dr. Motiram is a script writer and nothing more.  If you just need some meds, it's a quick appoinment and it's easy to get a slot.  But make sure to educate yourself, this doctor will not take that kind of time with you.

  •     Although we have been involved with counceling about out adoptive son off and on since he was a young child, since we
    moved to Florida a number of years ago we realized we would have to continue with some professional guidance as to
    when and how to back away from our now adult son.
         As I said, we were involved with many previous professionals, each giving similar advice, but I must add that Arthur Strause has come up with some additional ideas that could be of great value if and when our son is read And how to handle ourselves so that we can be focused on our lives until if and when he is ready for help.  
         I can't really give you the personal dos and dont's. since each family dinamics is diffeent and the advice should be different, but the obvious  ie: if there is any possible  adiction problem, NO money in any form directly given, etc.     And since there are so mnay mental conditions, like bi polar, personality disorders, etc., some there are medications for, some not,
          I should add, this is a no nonsence, no frills office.  Arthur Strauss keeps his fees as low as possible, keeping his overhead as low
    as possible, so if you are looking for some supportive advice & guidance, you can't go wrong by seeking out Arthur Strauss.

  • The receptionist was nasty from the second I walked in. They were speaking in a language that I couldn't understand and I thought that was alarming. The first doctor attached some electrodes to me to check some nerve reflexes. They didn't explain to me what they were doing. I then got moved to a second room. I was hooked up to all kinds of machines. I kept getting shuffled around to different rooms with different doctors and I never really knew  what was going on. The doctors didn't communicate well with each other or with me. I brought an MRI that I had a few months ago and they didn't even look at it. I was told to read a book that the doctor wrote as treatment. The information informed me that the only thing I could do is get surgery even though that is not true. They tried to overcharge me for each room I was in as well.

  • He is very kind, gentle, and knowledgeable. He went to Yale University. He accepts Medi-Care which is difficult to find in a psychiatrist. You do have to call ahead to confirm your appointment on the day of. They will update your appointment time on the phone if he is running behind. It takes a while to get an appointment but the wait is well worth it.

  • On my first visit I saw a therapist first for almost 2hours. Nancy, the therapist, seems like a very caring person. After I finished
    with Nancy, the doctor came in. Nancy went through all of her notes and told the Doctor most of what we discussed. At that
    time he prescribed a med.

    On my second visit, I saw Nancy again, and again I saw the doctor. It was not what I expected, since I went to a pyschiatrist
    before and didn't see a therapist first. I think this is a very good way, and not just giving a med without any background.

  • He studied in Yale University. He has been on the list of America’s top doctors. The Castle Connolly book is where they get doctors to rate the other doctors and he is highly regarded in that book. He prescribes sleeping pills because my family doctor does not like to get involved with the sleeping pills. He is fantastic. He has a wonderful reputation from my other doctors. He knows everything and he knows a lot of tricks that other doctors don’t. When I tell my friends that Dr. Extein suggested something which costs only $10 and it works better than what they are taking I am impressed. He has lot of patients. For the first appointment you might have to wait for a couple of weeks and then he will schedule an appointment for your refill or review of your pills that you are taking. He prescribes psychiatric drugs. I lived in New York for years. He has been as good as any other doctor I have been to.

  • Out of respect to Dr. Croft, I chose to leave the practice and seek treatment by this dangerous medication elsewhere. The grades are based on my dealings with the nurse and in no way reflect on Dr. Croft whom I only wish well.
  • What stands out on him is his professionalism, honesty, effectiveness of treatment and personality.
    - Richard D.
  • Very nasty, cold man with no compassion. Abrupt, impatient.
