Please Please be mindful when hiring. DO NOT HIRE MENTAL HEALTH providers etc from Community. People talk no matter HEPA rules or not. Shidduchim are being ruined ! please have mercy.

Our family situations are the subjects of people’s conversations. Hire frum providers that are not from the neighborhood. Our history can go back home with them to their own neighborhood instead of being recycled around Crown Heights. Why is it public knowledge that my friends fourteen year old is on pills …… because they heard the news from adults.

Number 1. If you are so paranoid that community therapists will discuss your personal business; then don’t use their services. 2. If you believe that there’s a G-d running this world, you would realize that nobody can ruin a shidduch that has been prepared for you before you were even born. Have a great day!

So we should shlep out of the neighborhood because it’s that hard to have at least ONE provider that person can feel comfortable with that is not from the neighborhood? you have NO IDEA how hard it is to shlep your child after school all the way to Petach Tikva to get the help they need. The money spent on Ubers to get there. Making sure you have arrangements for the other kids etc. It’s that or watching your child suffer or watching them being made fun of mercilessly in school. Community services should have the COMMUNITY PEOPLE In mind.

“Shidduchim are being ruined!”

This may sound controversial, but perhaps abuse or divorce is being prevented?

I agree HIPAA rules should apply to all care providers. There are of course halachic guidelines from well before HIPAA went into effect.

It should be up to the people dating to discuss mental health history, etc. Maybe something was found out that should have been stated up front?

You have what to learn about when it comes to Mental Health. Don’t know what your family situation is but if you are a parent or grandparent it’s not all that unlikely that one of your offspring will deal with a mental health issue and that’s possibly the case at this very moment and it’s just going undiagnosed and untreated thanks to your bias and lack of knowledge. In many cases mental health issues arise later in life. For example bipolar usually pops up between the ages of 20 and 25, schizophrenia usually starts between the ages of 25 and… Read more »

What’s the connection? The only point relevant to this discussion is making sure providers respect privacy.

Proud!!

Highly disagree! There are many young respectful lubavitch medical assistants working at the office and I was highly impressed by their professionalism and with keeping the privacy of the community- I have been at shabbos meals with them and have seen how they do not disclose any information about the community. They are our future! It’s beautiful to have them involved in our community- educated lubavitchers

BH, great news

So nice that we are supporting our chassidishe brethren from Williamsburg

ODA is owned by people from Williamsburg.
Crown Medical will now be in this office, as part of ODA, not as an independent practice.

Thats great

They seem to have better ways of working, specially with medicaid etc (a lot of people go only there)

Difference

It is different because it has many specialists, which was missing from crown heights

Shoes to fill.

We wish this project הצלחה

They have big shoes to fill, the shoes of our beloved רופא ידיד Dr. Eli Rosen……

Great service

Times changing. Satmar have a huge imprint in Crown Hts, they offer good service. Good for the neighborhood. Obvi we had are chances to go big but let’s embrace what we now have.

Dr Portnoy at crown medical is A GEM

Worried and not comfortable
June 22, 2022 12:07 am

Feels like no individualized attention lost the caring warm feel of the old dr Rosen office, more like a clinic or emergency room hospital, I’m not impressed by this , and feel lost

Agree with number 1
June 22, 2022 12:35 am

Please please be mindful and sensitive to the providers you are hiring from within, OB, mental health, psychiatry and other sensitive levels of care etc, people talk even just to family and family to another family. This is sensitive and crucial information being shared. Nobody of the new generation is like Dr. Rosen that carries it all quietly and privately on his shoulders.

Health or Medical ?

It’s nice to see more services opening to the community, I especially like that they mention “ODA services are available to all, regardless of ability to pay”

My only question is the food being served does not look like it’s too healthy.

I find it ironic that at events like this or other fundraising events focused on health tend to serve unhealthy food.

Any word if Dr. Issarof is also merging with oda? He is my Dr. and I will be sticking with him either way.

BH for Glen Livet!

Does anyone know WHEN they’ll open to the public?
June 22, 2022 5:17 pm

They’ve had a few articles here & for mnths they’ve been telling us about the opening!

Does anyone know WHEN they’ll open to the public?

Info about practice
June 22, 2022 5:21 pm

Wondering if new practice is oriented to Jewish community or serving wider CH residents?

Does it matter?
Reply to  Info about practice
June 22, 2022 11:15 pm

It’s probably for anyone who lives in the community just like any other clinic

Parking question
June 23, 2022 6:27 am

Is there parking nearby?
