Dr. Shain Kara-Shariff's Ratings
I've been a patient of Dr. Kara's through my teenage and now adult years. She's helped me through some serious medical issues, and is always patient and thorough. Yes, wait times are long, but this is because she's always double booked and accepts walk ins. The staff is totally overworked, that is obvious, but has always been great to me.
I can only imagine that the people who have rated below feel that they are entitled to the free services they receive by hard working doctors such as Dr. Kara. This doctor is amazing. She has a big heart and she is extremely knowledgeable. Yes, the wait times are long, but that is only because everyone in Markham wants to see Dr. Kara. I have seen many people be rude and yell at the staff- totally unnecessary. I would highly recommend Dr. Kara. She is a wonderful person and an amazing doctor.
The staff at this clinic sucks, super rude n disrespectful. They don't care about anything, if treat them with coffee, they'll look after you, quite openly. Waste of time. Kara Shariff is amazing
Dr Kara has been my family physician for 25 years. Yes, the wait time is long to see her BUT she is well worth the wait. She is extremely knowledgable, will refer to specialists and is very caring. She has helped my family and been my children's doctor since their birth and watched them grow into young adults with great care. These comments about Dr Kara and her staff are said with love and respect. My children think Miss. Mary and Miss Marie are like friends as they know my children's names without looking at a file. The same goes for Carolyn and Gail, Shirley Anne...they are absolutely wonderful. We now drive in from Cobourg to see Dr. Kara, her professional diagnosis surpasses others in her field. We highly recommend her and her team. The reason why her wait time is long, is because everybody wants to see her. That speaks volumes for her as a physician and human being.
I have been with DrKara for the last 25 years now. In the bigning she was very attentive and caring to me and my late Husband. She brought patient and great listening skills and diagnosis. The front desk was amazing helpful and didn’t have to wait long. I've refined that her staff is VERY rude, DrKara medical knowledge has lacked from the first time I was in her office. Her appointments are NEVER on time waiting for 4 hours one time, the coffee was ok but it got old after the 8 the cup. I am not alone there are so many people dealing with the same thing. I'm looking for another Dr. Now because going to Dr.Kara is more painful than what I am physically going thru. I feel worse after going to her office. After my exam she doesn't tell me anything I don't already know.DrKara lacks today’s medial knowledge of treating humans, I think she is better severed treating Pets. All she cares about is money from OHIP. This attitude is unacceptable and should not be acceptable by any medical field
I understand what everyone is saying about the wait times and the disposition of some of the staff members. But that has no reflection on the quality of service Dr.Kara has always provided me. I have been seeing Dr.Kara since I was a young teenager, I am now in my late twenties. Through this time I have had to deal with some very serious medical conditions that Dr.Kara has always helped me with. I have been to other walk in clinics and even though of getting a new family doctor because of the wait times but after testing the waters and meeting with some other potential dr's I had researched none of them had the gentle comforting demeanor and knowledge that Dr.Kara had. She is a truly compassionate person and has helped me through some very difficult times. The wait times and distance I now travel to get there (because I have moved) is well worth it and I would suggest her to friends and family!
Staff is a reflection of how they are treated by their boss, period. Being punctual is a sign of respect for patients as they do their doctor, Dr. Shariff is not punctual at all, she is very helpful. Her staff is overworked and treated poorly by the patients. I have been there 20 plus years, and the wait time can be 4 hours with a booked appointment, many times 2 to 3 hours. If you have time she is good, if not move on.
I have been with Dr. Kara-Shariff for 5 years now. At first I thought she was great because she was patient and very nice. I thought I was there on a busy day and it was not normal. After being with her for a couple years, I've learned that her staff is VERY rude. Her appointments are NEVER on time (usually a two hour wait!). I thought I was the only one dealing with this until I found this website. I'm looking for another Dr. now because I think going to the doctor should be a good thing and I always feel horrible after going her office. Every time I got there, she doesn't tell me anything I don't know. She doesn't give me extra information. I'm sure she knows her stuff, but hasn't taken the time with me. I find that I need to ask her questions to get clarification. I'm not encouraged by her actions to get my yearly physical and that doesn't sit right with me. Thank you everyone for all your reviews, I feel so much better that I'm not alone in my experiences.
