Avoid at all costs!!! Terrible doctor who imposes conservative beliefs on patients!..., May 21, 2013
I had slim pickings with my new HMO so I chose Dr. Galiano because he was downtown near my office. I was always in/out in 30 minutes which was great BUT he would always make snide comments to me. He asked "Why would you need a blood test for STDs? Are you promiscuous?" All I wanted was to get a checkup and figured I could test for STDs since they were already taking my blood. I didn't need a judgement. Recently I went in to get a blood test to see if I was pregnant. This was an unplanned pregnancy so it was really scary. He proceeded to lecture me by saying "The body is made for reproducing and you should not be having sex if you do not want to reproduce." I have never been more offended in my life! He also refused a blood test because he said it would be a waste of money and I needed to wait longer than 2.5 weeks. 2.5 weeks or not I was scared and needed medical guidance in which I received judgement and lectures. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
Dr. Thomas McFadden is absolutely the BEST P/S ANYWHERE ..., Feb 21, 2013
Dr. McFadden is withou a doubt, the finest cosmetic surgeon anywhere! He performed a tummy tuck for me and changed my life in the process. I no longer have to buy clothes several sizes too large to try to hide my protuding stomach, and I no longer have to be ashamed ofshopping for clothes. I can now wear shirts and pants that I pickup off the rack! This amazing doctor gave me back my life in more ways than he could ever know.He is truly the BEST!!!
Good staff, horrible "doctor" - Wallet stuffer versus actual clinician ..., Feb 10, 2013
In a few words?
- Horrible bed side manner; dodged questions and threatened to quit when we inquired about alternative treatment methods. This dude is older than the internet as we know it and he was throwing hissy-fits like a rabid Bieber-fan.
- Extremely pessimistic. Every conversation boiled down to DEATH. Look, I get that cancer is no walk in the park, but rubbing our faces in it is counterproductive and honestly, believe it or not, does more harm than good. After the nth time of being told "HE IS GOING TO DIE," we stopped talking to him about and kept his patient visits short.
- Biggest gripe? Cancer research is a constantly developing field and new, novel discoveries are made often enough that you might spot it in the newspaper or online. It should have been a huge red flag when this so-called M.D. was absolutely clueless about significant changes in our understanding of how cancer works.
Final remarks? He gave up on our father when we walked through the door the first time. Had we known of his lazy, outdated way of treatment, we would have walked right back out of that room without hesitation.
Peddles quack medicine and couldn't care less about a patient's time (part 2)..., Jan 29, 2013
will charge you like a wounded bull for their own precious time? Arrogance? Disdain? The kind of greed that pushes them to cram their appointment schedule with as many patients as possible per day? And would it kill their staff to at least offer up some kind of token apology or explanation when keeping you waiting interminably? Whatever, I got up and left in disgust.
Having done my homework via the internet on the allergy test Dr. Masri peddles so stridently, and added to the manner with which he so casually played with my own health via the dismissive attitude he took to the views of gastroenterology specialists I’ve seen through the years, I’d already decided that he was certainly not the kind of medical practitioner I wanted to entrust my health to, or that of my family, on a long term basis. After the fiasco of waiting to see him so long, my view was doubly confirmed.
Don't Use Elite Care Emergency or Dr. Jason Gukhool..., Jan 9, 2013
Do not use this clinic! Dr. Gukhool has a major EGO PROBLEM! He is condescending, rude, and arrogant! He refuses to prescribe antibiotic for upper respiratory infection. If you get sicker, the doctor still refuses to prescribe an antibiotic. He does not care what your medical history is. If you start feeling worse, you have to come in pay another $250, and he will still not prescribe an antibiotic. I have never encountered a doctor who is this callous!
