I would not recommend this guy to anyone, for anything. I have been wondering about him over the years. Needless to say, I saw him about 7 or 8 years ago. I would call him crying and send him suicidal emails, to which his response would be, "take more drugs." I was diagnosed as having Bi-Polar disorder. I'm not bipolar, but Dr. Raiss put me on Depakote, Paxil, Xanax, and some other crap. Depakote makes you fat. So not only was I now fat, I was still depressed.

Upon seeing a new psychiatrist, I was re-diagnosed with a personality disorder, weaned off of what the new doctor said was "one of the most offensive cocktails of drugs he had ever seen" and treated for what I really had. I was told I should sue Dr. Raiss, but I come from a family of doctors and couldn't be bothered. I just wanted to get better.

I'm now a straight-A graduate student in sociology and business.

Dr. Raiss has an incredibly condescending bedside manner (perhaps because he went to Harvard). This guy screwed me up. He's weird (like all psychiatrists) and I wonder how screwed up his family is.
