I had gone to Dr Felixbrod 2 years ago. My son was diagnosed with ADHD from NYU child study center in Manhattan.
This is probably one of the best places in the world to get an evaluation. At this time my son was getting into alot of trouble at school. I went by myself to see Dr. Felixbrod twice before I agreed to let him work with my son.
He had planed on doing a school visit. Prior to the school visit, Dr. Felixbrod had said that his associate Chris would be going to the school. Chris went and did the visit.
That evening I had called Dr. Felixbrod to see how the visit had gone. Dr. Felixbrod said he had some very disturbing news.
I was immediately alarmed. He stated that Chris thought that my son suffered from autism not ADHD and he pretty much agreed with Chris's findings. The next day I called LIJ behavioral department for a reevalution of my son. I had spoke to a behavioral Dr.
at LIJ. He assured me that it was immposible for Chris who is not qualified to even make a diognosis to make an autism diognosis in two hours or Dr. Felixbrod who had never seen my son to make that diognosis. I called Dr.
Felixbrod that day and told him what the Dr. at LIJ said. He flipped. He said "why did you tell them that" and proceeded to deny everything.
I made him get Chris on a conference call who also began denying that he made a diognosis of my son. I took my son to LIJ and he has ADHD not AUTISM. In the last two years with PROPER counseling my son graduated from his grammar school with honors and is starting high school in a week. He made the freshman football team and is enjoying life.
When I had gone to Dr. Felixbrod he didn't want money for the consultation. After my conversation with him and Chris on the phone I told him to send me a bill for the school visit. Do you think he did?
NO he did not. I would have paid the bill and then sued him for misdiognosing my son. Don't be fooled he is a very sick man who preys on families in need and Chris is just a college graduate with no medical experience. The doctors at LIJ were very aware of Dr.
Felixbrod and his antics. If your child has ADHD or AUTISM go to LIJ or NYU where you will get the proper help you need.
If there are any negative postings to my story I can assure you it is Dr. Felixbrod or his cronnie Chris the unqualified.
