My daughter suffers from various learning disabilities such as autism and deficit attention disorder. She gets out of hand at times. I took her to Dr. Budney as I live nearby on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Dr. Budney has an office on the first floor of a rather run down 5 story building but it was convenient. We both went into her office and took seats. Dr. Budney began to question her when my daughter acted out and spit in her face. Dr. Budney lost her temper and began calling my child a dirty Jew. I left immediately. I know what she did was wrong but that was no excuse for Antisemitism.

Susan Budney Supported a n**i for Years

AUTHOR: ajweberman - ()

If Susan was so tolerant of Jews she would not have let her home be used by a n**i like her soon to be divorced husband Micheal Santamauro. In fact Santamoron called me with info on her Jew hating activities but I hung up the phone as I don't talk to Nazis. There was a reason for what I did floating a false evaluation of her work.

I MADE UP A STORY ABOUT SUSAN BUDNEY

AUTHOR: Shumel Cohen - (United States of America)

I have no daughter Shula and I made up the story about Dr. Budney because of her association with the head of the Institute for Historical Review in New York City, a n**i scum named Michael Santamoro. Now that she is dumping him and has come to her senses the Black propaganda campaign can come to an end.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

From the mother of another exceptional child

AUTHOR: thejedhi - (United States of America)

I too have a child with emotional/behavioral challenges.  He was also prone to violence.  He was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome, and ADD when he was 8.  He was also diagnosed as Bi-Polar when he was 12.  He used to slap/hit/kick/punch/beat on me.  My husband did nothing.  I took him to every professional across the South and the story was the same.  Unlike yours, mine was/is true.  He tried to assault teachers as well when he was younger  Once he got bigger than me, he presented a very real threat to me and  everyone around him.  I was warned many times that he needed to be in a controlled environment - not at home. He was routinely rejected from being seen by local psychiatrists and mental health professionals. I cried loud and long for help and hope for him.  No one would listen he eventually (thank God) came up on the wrong lady.  Prior to her he had gotten away with everything, though the school had been very much aware nobody did anything.
That is until he walked up into the life and met up with a force unlike anything he'd ever experienced and a mere verbal threat to "knock the assistant principal on her head" following countless classroom disturbances and assaults on others finally affected the wrong person.  It led to charges of Felony Assault at a School.  That was and is the appropriate response to violent, out of control behavior. 

 If you child is violent to the point that you cannot control her and she becomes violent with you or another person, it is your responsibility (not a doctor's) to assume a position of control over the situation and protect the child, yourself and other people.  You know her better than anyone and even you admittedly can't control her?  I was warned to leave the marital home in fear of my life.  It got that bad.  Eventually this veteran assistant principal and  teaching professional with many years service (who also happens to be black and I'm white, which matters not at all in the bigger picture) finally loved me and herself and others enough to do what nobody else seemed willing or able to do.  She called the law on my son! After that, she called me and shared bits and pieces of her own incredible life - the courage and spirit of her convictions which  He faced and finally admitted to Felony Assault charges.  He was carried out of Juvenile Court by his legs and arms.  My son spent several years in and out of juvenile detention ultimately graduating to the adult system.  He violated probation several times which landed him in the County Jail for six months.  Initially he took medication and was cooperative.  Later on (after he turned 18) he decided medication was not for him.   There was nothing I could do at this point.  He was physically removed from my home by mental health officials and sent to live with his dad who had left the State.  He nearly beat his dad to death, but his dad had returned to alcoholism and did nothing but endure the beatings.  Finally, when girls became a part of my son's reality, he began hitting, punching, threatening them as routinely as he had done me/his dad.  For everyone of them that had the courage to call police and have him charged, I am grateful.  He eventually did time in prison.  Believe me.  It has had a lasting effect on both of us.  If your child is violent she belongs in the physical and legal custody of someone who can/will appropriately control her.  I don't care if you are Jewish, Catholic, Baptist, whatever!  

My own feelings having walked this same path is that if this doctor knew your child was/is violent, she would not have seen her outside of a controlled environment and would recommend that you have her taken to one if she was hitting and slapping you.  If your child has a sudden outburst and slapped anybody, short of sibling rivalry, the first thing that should be done is call police!.  Whatever whoever did or did't say doesn't matter.  Actions speak so much louder than words The violence will only escalate.  My relationship with my son has endured (he's almost 30) even though he knows now I would now be the first person - not the last - to call for help and get myself and others out of harms way when he was in a fit of rage.    Get her some help before something bad comes of it.  Complaining about - essentially admitting in a public forum - that your child has assaulted another person and blaming the other person is very misdirected.  Any health professional that is even aware of such behavior going on is legally responsible for reporting it.  What  this is really is not a complaint  It is you own outcry for help - even if misdirected.  Hopefully, your own report  here will reach the hands and eyes  of someone with authority who cares enough to help you and  your child.  I pray that you and she get the help you so very much need and deserve.  You are both worthy of same. I am the mother of another exceptional child.

This Review is Untrue. This person was never seen by me.

AUTHOR: Dr. Budney - (United States of America)

I am Dr. Susan Budney and this review is untrue and meant to defame my reputation due to my ex-husband to be's political blogs and activities, none of which I have any part of.  I have never seen this patient.  I do not treat children, nor work with children with learning disabilities, autism, or attention deficit disorder.  

This can be verified by looking at my Website on Therapy Directory and Women's Mental Health Consortium and the homepage of Susanbudney.org  which are accurate descriptions of me and my work.  Other websites which claim outrageous and defamatory things about me are untrue.  I am not anti-semitic, in fact I am known for my love, acceptance and tolerance of of people.  I am well regarded by colleagues and my clients, and feel blessed that the work I do has helped so many people, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or gender.

In working with my specialty, which is treating trauma, this experience makes me more keenly aware of what it is like to be bullied and terrorized by others when you have done nothing wrong.  I have great empathy for those who are unjustly accused as I have been, or are "guilty by association" when others do not know the truth of the situation.

I respect the right to report abuse within any business, and support freedom of speech, but I am alarmed and troubled by people/organizations who abuse the freedom of speech to hurt others, and abuse the true aim of websites like this.  I write this in the hopes that the truth will prevail, and the lies will be shown for what they are.
