He has very poor bedside manner. My wife had a very strong will, she said her illness was just another "Bump in the road". He said "No it's a chasm" Then on top of that he neglected giving her the blood tests that he was required to and she died before she completed her treatment.

last comment added The treating room is right off and in clear view of the waiting room.  Anyone coming in the establishment will see you getting treatment.  Thats not right.  Also, and more troubling, he billed my insurance for procedures he didnt do.  My attorney went over exam notes and they didnt match the specialts exams for the same complaints.  He only did one exam on me and he had noted he did them every time I was there.  What a scam.

DO. NOT. GO. TO. THIS. MAN. I cannot stress it enough.
 
My first meeting with Thor was fine. Professional and informative. The second time I went, he asked me how things were going and I told him I was making progress and that I had made a couple new friends who had similar hobbies as me. He immediately screamed at me that I was a liar. Then he ranted for a while about his children and how they were and how I was just like them?? Whatever that meant, but I found it inappropriate. My mother, who was with me, spoke up and said that he seemed to be talking about something else entirely and not about me, and he said, AND I QUOTE, 'One in ten people with her illness kill themselves and when she does it, it's not going to be my fault.' Not 'if' but 'when.' When you're already seeking help for something, hearing that you're going to kill yourself over it is not encouraging. Then he wrote a prescription, told me nothing about it, and told us leave and said he would see us again, 'if you even want to come back,' as if he knew what he did was wrong?
 
We left feeling very confused, and I was fighting off tears. When we went to pick up my prescription, the pharmacist asked me if I had taken the dosage before. I told him no, and he asked if I had taken that medication at all before, I told him no. He called over someone else and they talked, until they told me they could not give me the medication because the dosage could kill me. We were shocked.
 
After everything that had happened, I made a post on facebook about what was said to me, and how it was really discouraging when I was trying very hard to recover and get better. Someone asked me who it was, and when I said his name, not one, not two, but FOUR people had similar experiences. One was also given a prescription that could kill them, two different medications that you cannot take together. One was given a prescription of klonopin that was extremely high, and then he suddenly took them off of it, which resulted in a seizure. And the other two were screamed at like I was, one being called a 'bitch.'
 
I understand how unbelievable this will all sound, but when you even just google his name, similar accounts are all over on different sites. I do not know why this man is still in medicine. This happened a while ago, and I have been kicking myself ever since for not recording this event, or just SOMETHING, so that I could do something about it. If there was ever a class action lawsuit, or anything at all, I would very gladly participate in it. He should not be allowed NEAR people seeking help for mental illness, let alone making a career out of it.
 
ALL OF THIS BEING SAID! Brien Hill who works in his practice was an absolute godsend. Incredibly helpful and fantastic. After this experience with Thor, I told him about it and he said he understood completely, and while he could not prescribe me anything, he sent me to the doctors downstairs with a written report from him, and they prescribed me my medication. They said they had seen many similar complaints about Thor and that going thru them instead was a much safer way to go. I really appreciated everyone in the building working with me so I could still see Brien, what he did for me still helps me to this day despite it being a while since our last sessions.

last comment added When I was injured last year, I saw a dozen doctors and therapists before being told that my injury was beyond the reach of just physical therapy and exercises I could do myself, they said I needed to see a pain management specialist who could work out a plan that would include pain meds, physical therapy, and attending pain management group sessions to learns pain management skills. My insurance company made the choice simple: they would only pay if I saw Dr Schrattenholzer at Good Samaritan. I met with every member of his team. Most of them were extremely professional, courteous, and informative. So when it was time to see Dr Schrattenholzer himself, I was less scared than I had been.

Seeing Dr Schrattenholzer shattered that feeling, and replaced it with dread. He did not reference my file, or consider the opinions of the other members of his team or the other doctors I have seen. He believes that medication has no place in pain management, and has made his mind up about how to treat all patients with no regard to their individual details. Having a personal code of ethics is a good thing, but he is undermining the efforts of an entire pain management clinic. And now that I've seen him, he has written things in my file that make it difficult for other doctors to get a clear picture of my situation.

I truly wish I had never met him.
