Dr. Jenson Mak's Ratings
In the last 6 months I have come under the care of Dr Mak for a long-standing, unresolved, and complex issue with my right ankle. I sit here now and write these words because of the positive impression he has made on me thus far - the consideration and diligence he has shown in responding to my pain and concerns, and the rational and intelligent way he has devised and proposed the further investigation of my problem. I've read the other entries here before writing this. I have no intimate knowledge of the details pertaining to some of the less than favourable comments, few that they are. All I can say is I am not young and impressionable. I have studied the human psyche. I am by nature cynical and guided only by facts, not subjective commentary. Dr Mak is a highly intelligent man who also has a well-developed (not regressive) personality and healthy sense-of-self. This is a relatively rare combination which allows one to be highly and accurately analytical whilst seemingly relaxed and jovial at the same time. It can be seen by others (who may or may not be in the process of worrying at the time) as a lack of concern or care or concentration. That is a misreading. It's true that nobody is perfect - but people need to remember that neither is the science of medicine. Until we can make a perfectly functioning human being from scratch (including all cognitive and emotional functions) then don't expect every interaction with the medical profession to be perfect. (And by the way - i don't think we ever will). From my dealings with, and observations of Dr Mak I can say two things with great certainty: 1) that he is in this profession because he is intelligent enough to be good at it, and 2) He cares about people and their quality of life enough to want to make a difference. I have seen no evidence whatsoever to allow me to arrive at any other conclusion. I would recommend Dr Mak without hesitation.
Thanks to Dr Mak for looking after my father who has ankylosing spondylitis and depression. It's great to see a doctor who thinks 'outside the box', and can vary his consultation approach from pragmatic to didactic, to empathic corresponding to the mood and environment. He also has a light-hearted view on healthy ageing. Ask him!!
I don't necessarily think Dr Mak is a bad doctor but the fact that he answered phone calls from Brokers, Lawyers, Agents, bank managers etc talking about his acquisitions and developments whilst in consultations with my mother is somewhat off putting at best and negligent at worst.
She was not happy.
My elderly mother and I are reviewed by Dr Mak in his rooms at Campsie. He has been competently reviewing us in the past few years: with care and compassion. His knowledge of medicine is second to none. He also thinks 'outside the box'' and often searches on google for any alternative or complementary treatments which I propose work for us. Rather than dismissing those treatments, he would occasionally support a trial of these. Overall I am pleased to recommend to any of my friends and family.
Dr Mak is a bulk billing, trilingual geriatrician and rehab physician with an interest in bones, joints and the brain. I have been seeing him for quite a few years now for my chronic lower back pain. He has a multimodal approach and in my case has a strong tailored exercise program to maintain my good back. I now play hold three times a week and go swimming. Thanks for getting my back 'back' into shape Dr Mak! Highly Recommended!!!
I have been seeing him for the past 5 years. 'Thinking outside the square', 'holistic', 'tending to my psychological needs', 'compassionate and empathic' are qualities that makes him stand out compared to other specialists in Sydney and the Central Coast.
Dr Mak has a holistic approach to the treatment of both my parents who are in the their early 60s. He is meticulous to detail and is up to date with his knowledge. He has published in several areas of bone health, aged care and rehabilitation including vitamin D which has won him several grants, scholarship and awards. His practice is based on his clinical experience backed up by solid evidence base. Well done!!
Nearing the end of my second attempt to gain justice for my father due to incompetent, neglectful treatment by Jenson Mak. My father went into hospital with a minor compression fracture and came out with a broken neck following a pointless three weeks of non treatment by Mak. Mak did not return phone calls from family. Mak failed to identify a previous misdiagnosis (now acknowledged by all specialists, including the doctor who made the original mistake). Mak was not remotely interested in this elderly patient and did not come anywhere near him - until my husband rang an old school friend who was now Mak's boss. Then he was all over us like a rash. Too late for Dad - Under Mak's 'care' he ended up with a near fatal urinary tract infection, pneumonia and a broken neck.
One of my neighbours turned 100 recently! She tells me she had been one of Dr Mak's patients when he looked after diligently when she broke her hip at Gosford Private! She is unable to type on the Internet but her daughter also wrote a note of thanks for the expert healing way Dr Mak looked after her whilst she was rehabilitating. Thank you for your care, kindness and attention to detail! Because of you she is able to return home and continue to live independently again! Well Done!
