I've read a lot of reviews here from folks being critical of Dr Raad. I've never had any problems from Dr Raad. It seems that many people here who have are blaming him becasue there is not medical cure for addiction or they blame him becasue of the situation that they find themselves in...

"Through our inability to accept personal responsibilities
we were actually creating our own problems."

I don't expect any doctor or medical professional to understand what I go through as an addict - for this malady I put my faith in someone who has walked a mile in my shoes.

I have been a patient at Park Road Medical for 6 years now. I trust Dr. Raad more then any physician I have ever met with my life. He truly cares for his patients. There is no other doctor on this planet I rather see. He does so much for the community and the people .
He makes you laugh and feel at ease

Sadly, I have to agree with the poster above. I found his manner to be demeaning & offensive. I have heard of doctors with big egos but I have never met one until now. I was told he is an ??expert? in the field of addiction. I, too, went to the detox center & was accepted into the program as I was told I met the criteria. At first my ins company told his office they would pay for this stay. However, partway thru the medical withdrawal process I was told the ins company was not going to pay after all as the ins company did not think I met the criteria. (I had a similar experience with a different insurance company regarding allergy testing.) Anyway, after he found this out he discharged me immediately. I find it odd as I know there were people there who had no ins at all. I am not a ??street junkie?. I developed dependence as a result of having cancer twice & taking pain medication on a regular basis. I saw it was becoming an issue & action needed to be taken.
While I was there, I asked him to look at some wounds from a recent surgery that did not seem to be healing properly (as his nurse suggested) in case they were infected though I knew it was not his forte. He told me he thought he ??could handle it?. I thought he was making a joke at first. I did not mean to imply he did not know everything there is to know!
After being told I was being discharged, he said he would write an rx for the withdrawal drug only if I went to outpatient treatment at ??his?? facility which was to start within a few hours. I felt ambushed. Now I was leaving immediately though I was expecting to stay for a week. I told him I needed time to find out if my insurance company would pay for THAT treatment among other things. He got right in my face and quoted some AA saying about putting off treatment, then left the room. I am to make an appt with him in a week or I ??won??t get any more of the withdrawal drug.? It was as if it were a ??carrot? he was dangling in my face. I do not CARE if I have that drug or not. I just want to get thru the withdrawal safely. I am now in the middle of active opiates withdrawal.
I am now in the middle of medicated, active withdrawal with a muddled mind trying to figure out what I should do now. I know I should not have driven home. I will not be making an appt with him. I feel very uncomfortable around this man. If something happens to me I hope my family sues.

On my last visit I was asking about some knee pain I was experiencing. He checked it out and eventually wrote down the name of a condition and told me I could Google it for more information.

I will not be visiting this office again.

My family have been patients of Dr Raad over 25 years. He has correctly diagnosed and successful treated all. I have since over the years realized many of the people I know in the community see him also. I personally have seen him for 20 years, During this time I have had some serious complicated problems. Dr. Raad has brought me through, never stopping until he figured the problem out. He is resourceful in the community and never hesitates to research and call in anyone that can help. He is passionate, caring, understanding and "stands up for his patient's". I would recommend him to anyone needing a "SUPER DR." in the Charlotte area. He and his staff are EXCELLENT, KIND and RESPECTFUL. I put my complete trust and care totally in his Family Practice.

I would not recommend going to see Dr. Raad for any pt seeking help with a substance abuse problem. I went to a local detox unit in desparate need of help for my addiction. When I saw Dr. Raad, he was not only inconsiderate and innatentive, but rude and belittling. I was discharged from the facility after 5 days of considerable illness. I was unable to eat those 5 days D/T uncontrollable nausea, he refused to treat my nausea my entire stay. I have had to continue to go to his office for presciption pick up and my treatment from him hasn't changed. He doesn't care about the efforts I've put forth to my recovery. He treats me more like a seeking junkie, than a pt in recovery. He's condescending and rude, and I will not continue to see him for any medical needs.
