Dr. Kenneth P.F. Kemkaran's Ratings
I was referred to Dr Kemkaran a few months ago. I had a full checkup and blood work done. He is exceptionally thorough and very intelligent and caring. I have been so impressed with his follow up and depth of understanding. Medical technicians and specialists he deals with speak of him with exceptional regard for his abilities and knowledge.
He has a great sense of humour, his gregarious nature is rather refreshing in a medical doctor! Some people who have reviewed him here seem to find him abrupt or annoying, and conclude that he is aloof and uncaring. They are wrong. I find that he is grounded, very down to earth, and a no nonsense kind of guy. He is so intelligent that he cuts through the mire quickly and addresses your matters professionally and with a depth of understanding that is rare. Possibly these dissatisfied people need too much coddling. I would rather have an engaging and no nonsense doctor like Dr Kemkaran any day!
He genuinely cares about his patients, and I am confident that he runs behind often because he takes the time to engage you thoroughly, and really think through your situation. It became evident rather swiftly that this Doctor REALLY knows his stuff!! He stands head and shoulders above most other doctors I have interacted with.
I call his office just before my appointment time to see if he is behind. The staff tell you how many are ahead of you if you ask. I have never had to wait more than about 20 mins.
I've been a patient if Dr. Kemkaren now for about 10 years. In that time I've always waited 2-4 hours even with an appt. today was the last straw when my daughter went to see him and waited 6 hours & still never got in to see him & she was so sick she puked in the waiting room & his staff didn't bat an eye. My daughter commented he was late & sauntered in at 11:30am when he was supposed to be in at 11am then leaves for lunch from 1pm to 2:30pm! My daughter said she was told he had 3 appts & 3 walk in including her & she still didn't get in! He was the one who wanted her to come in due to test results! As well his incompetent staff put my name as a walk in not my daughter's!! He is never available on weekends & has moved to 5 clinics in 10 years likely due to his procrastination, lack of respect of a patient's time, arrogance, inconsideration, lack of empathy, delusion on giving advice but clearly not living it as he is obese & constantly talking about his personal life. Does he really think it's appropriate to do so or that we are his psychiatrists?? I no longer trust this doctor with my child's well being! If I could rate this is called DR a 0 I would! Kenneth Kimkaren us incompetent in his personal & professional life!! I'm tired of each time I see him I have to book a vacation day as his hours he actually works us so limited & when I do see him he has no idea why I'm there when he asked his unfriendly & rude receptionists to call me to come in due to blood test results!! Most Drs leave Canada to work in the USA but not him , he left the USA to work here knowing we're desperate for drs & have a shortage plus losing his license there fir doling out too many prescription drugs !!! No wonder you change clinics & locations so often & lose patients I'm sure!!! I'm so done with this awful incompetent unprofessional idiot!!!
Dr. Kemkaran is an extreme example of an inadequate doctor. I seen him for over two years not out of satisfaction in his performance but out of necessity as there were no doctors taking new patients in my area. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and tumours by specialists prior to me having to find a general practitioner. Dr. Kemkaran was the only one taking new patients so I went to see him. The initial meeting seemed positive: he was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. It all went downhill from there. Each and every scheduled appointment involved: a two to three hour wait, him talking incessantly about his life, test results were never fully disclosed unless I asked about them, he failed to accurately read those test results which resulted in a situation in which I was dangerously low in certain nutrients which further exacerbated my disorder, he suggested treatment for a disorder that I did not have. Not a doctor if you require informed, consistent, quality care.
IT IS OK FOR PROFESSIONALS TO TEACH BY PERSONAL EXAMPLES OR STORIES. HE IS A PERSON. I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING PERSONAL AND WOULD NOT CARE. HE IS WORTH THE WAIT ASKS THE RIGHT QUESTIONS HAD SPOT ON THOROUGH TESTS DIAGNOSIS in 5 mins more than two hours with emergency VIA ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. THEREFORE HE IS THE BEST FRIEND A PATIENT COULD HAVE WHO WILL DIAGNOSE OR CATCH CANCER IN TIME BESIDES A DOCTOR LIKE THAT. HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR I EVER HAD more than a gp and will refer you to the best docs in the city. too bad you cannot please everyone. who cares if he wore sweatpants. i never noticed what or if he did. he is a doctor not a model. if he falls behind it is because each patient will get the treatment and time they need or deserve. if that isnt worth the wait or the proper preventative care what is. CUT THIS GREAT PROFESSIONAL SOME SLACK HE IS AN ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY. THE STAFF IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WAITS. anyone with some sense would appreciate his professional expertise.
I would gladly pay to see anyone besides this doctor. He put me on medication and then SCREAMS at me when I need more. He is the worst doctor I have ever been to which explains why he has had to move 5 times in as many years. He is a slob, dresses like a bum, is totally incapable of managing his time - he spends half an hour screaming at you because he has had a bad day and then says "your time is up" before he can check any real medical problems you may have. He would never survive in a city without a severe doctor shortage. He is a loser and a bully. Routinely one to two hours late for every appointment. He is condescending, uncaring and a general threat to the public. The 1st time I saw him he put his private parts on my knee. Don't see this doctor!!!! Is this what socialized medicine is? Total idiots for doctors??
Always at least an hour late.His excuses range from sleeping in to having to care for his mother and kids. Had to hear about his side business interests and how his sister doesn't help with their mother. I have heard at least 3 times about his racketball injuries and his divorce issues. Can not complain about anything to his staff, they don't want to hear it. They tell you to call ahead to find out the waiting time and then when you do come in, they still have 5 people ahead of you. Very rude receptionists on the phone. There are at least 3-4 of them in there and it seems like they haven't a clue of what they are doing. Can't understand them on the phone and when you tell them so, they get angry and rude. They love putting people on hold repeatedly and getting another one to answer so that you have to repeat your call to the next one, which is very frustrating. When you voice this, they get angry again and write nasty notes in your file. Not going back to this clinic.
personable and takes the time to get to know patients so i can see why so many people think he is great. Spends too much time talking about his own personal issues or counselling on weight loss and diet but lacks credibility as he clearly does not walk the talk. VERY disrespectiful of the patient's I have tried booking at all different times and days. Nothing works. cancels short notice. ALWAYS 2-3+ hours behind. even when i book the first appt of the day he is more than an hour late. sweat pants and a t-shirt were common dress. If i did not know better i would NEVER think he was a Dr if i saw him on the street. Overall grossly unprofessional and down right disgusting. a discredit to the PROFESSION. The only thing in his favour is his wonderful staff ... i can't figure why they stay with him given all the abuse they take for his tardiness. Dr K ... you are Fired!!
