14/05/14 3 4 5 5 Dr. Davis is the most knowledgeable, pleasant, helpful & patient dermatologist we’ve ever seen. It’s been four years now & we’ll never see anyone else. Highly recommend him to anyone. Beware the reception staff though who can be very crusty & are in stark contrast to the receptive & knowledgeable doctors in the office – it’s just the unfortunate but not fatal price you need to pay to see this great doctor.  Respond

22/04/14 3 2 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. David for 4-5 years now and he's totally fixed my acne problems and helped with cosmetic laser treatments to fix my skin quality. He's kind and takes his time with you and doesn't upsell products or procedures giving honest advice and suggestions. Wait times can be long but it's because he takes his time with patients and doesn't cut sessions short to cram in as many people as possible. Wait times are not worse than some other doctors I've had in the past but can be lengthy.

18/12/13 4 4 5 5 After years of searching for the doctor who listens, understands my concerns and does a thorough examination, I finally ended my search when I met Dr. Davis a few months ago. Since then, Dr. Davis' attentive manner has given me the confidence I have been looking for in a physician. He follows up with certain procedures and provides results as soon as they are available. Dr. Davis' staff are lovely and they always ensure that I am comfortable. Dr. Davis is one in a million!!  Respond

16/12/13 1 1 1 1 Worst Medical Staff and Doctor I have ever seen in my life. No manner. running money making business ONLY. Even after taking an appointment you have to wait for 2 to 3 hours. Doctor Davis has no ethics he has no value of his own words.I don't suggest anyone to go to this clinic.

16/12/13 3 3 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Davis for many years. While his office is a very busy practice, his staff do try to fit you in as soon as possible depending on urgency and/or cancellations. Dr. Davis spends as much time as you need with him, which may make the wait in his waiting room sometimes a bit longer. Dr. Davis is very patient and explains things very clearly in language you can understand. He is very thorough and detail oriented. His knowledge and expertise are well worth the wait if there is one. I would highly recommend Dr. Davis to any of my family or friends who are looking for someone who is genuinely a very caring, gentle and helpful physician.  Respond

22/10/12 1 2 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Davis since 2005 and, because of his outstanding dedication to his patients, have recommended him to several family members over the years. However, after my appointment with Dr. Davis today I will never return. The staff, as well established on this website, are simply awful. Over the years I've been yelled at, mocked, and generally treated like dirt by these women but I've always put up with it. My wife puts up with it. My kids have even been subjected to it. The behaviour I saw today towards several patients - many of whom were very elderly or had limited English - was simply disgusting. There is no way Dr. Davis or his partner can be blind to this. It has always been shameful behaviour to witness or be on the receiving end of but the doctors should be ashamed that this is the way their patients are treated. Dr. Davis is bar none the best Derm in the city but the abuse you'll endure by these women is not worth it. Sorry, Dr. Davis, but it's the truth.  Respond

06/09/12 1 2 5 5 Dr Davis is nice person willing to help and very knowlegable.I reccomend him. The secreteries were brutal, very rude, don't know why he dosen't get rid of them. I understand that patients can sometimes be difficult, but their rudness stands out. There was a male that did answer the phone a few times and he was kind and helpful.  Respond

16/07/12 4 5 5 5 I have been a patient of dr davis for 16 years. he started me on laser hair removal for my chin at SpaMedica and the results have been amazing. I am still going for a touch up every few months but my skin is smooth and the pimples and redness are gone. He is evry patient and worth the wait.  Respond

25/05/12 4 1 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. Davis for the past eleven years and I think he's easily the best dermatologist in the city. Yes, the wait can be lengthy but this IS a specialists office, after all. The wait is long because Dr. Davis really takes his time with each patient and never makes you feel as though you're being rushed out so he can get to the next patient - and that's why my wife and I have returned to him since 2001. As for his staff, yes, they can be a bit hostile at times but I've also had to see them deal with a lot of unreasonable and abusive patients over the years. Just remember, you get what you give, people. Dr. Davis is simply the best and as long as you're prepared for the long wait you'll be in very good hands.  Respond

13/05/12 1 4 5 5 Office staff leave you feeling that you are bothering them for just routine inquiries. It's a shame that Dr. Davis and his partner have them as the face of their Clinic, as both Dr. Davis and his partner are lovely, receptive, knowledgeable doctors. There is a recurring theme about his office staff in the ratings that needs to be taken seriously. I wonder if the doctors review these comments. However, Dr. Davis is pleasant and responsive. I would recommend him.  Respond

11/05/12 1 1 5 5 He is a very knowledgeable and informative doctor. He helped my acne which is amazing! His receptionists are inconsiderate and impolite which I believe Dr. Davis should replace. I have to wait 2 hours for my appointment, but it was worth it.  Respond

05/05/12 1 1 4 4 Knowledgeable kind to the point doctor. Always looked after me. BEWARE staff are cruel hurtful mean and to a cancer patient even saying yes you are not the only one. Not one bit of compassion from staff. Tell you to sit and don't let you explain ask questions or talk to them  Respond

08/02/12 4 1 5 5 EXCELLENT EXCELLENT Doctor. Well worth the wait of 1.5 hours, he was extremely nice, apologized for the delay, explained in detail my skin condition, patient and answered all of my questions. I would definately recommend him and would go back to him.  Respond

02/02/12 2 1 5 5 Staff unfriendly and rude. Unable to control time slots. Dr. Davis is very nice, extremely competent and compassionate. I waited 1 1/2 hours to see him but he needed less than 30 minutes, all of which was useful.  Respond

20/01/12 4 3 5 5 Dr Davis is one of the greatest doctors I have ever met. My wife initially went to him for an acne condition but then wanted to go for Botox. He recommended against it, instead gave a prescription cream. He is very thorough and extremely knowledgable. He really cares for his patients. he is possibly the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Only down side is the long wait times, initially to get an appointment and then the endless wait to see him, but he is worth the wait. Thank you Dr, Davis, youre the best.

Not sure what happened to trigger the negative comments below, but I my experience with Dr. Davis has been nothing but a pleasure. In fact I have since moved from the Toronto area but am still keeping him as my dermatologist.  Respond

15/09/10 1 1 1 1 In a word, terrible. He was over 2.5hrs late for my appointment and when I finally did get to see him he was distracted and uninterested. Visual inspection of my problem lasted less than 10 seconds - TEN SECONDS! After the visual inspection I tried to further explain my situation. This was met with more of his distracted "hmmm, uh huh"s. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone unless you want to feel like a minor annoyance and distraction in his day. Also, reception staff is one of the rudest in the city. Maybe time for them all to choose a new line of work.  Respond

18/05/10 2 4 5 5 Was thrilled to find this dermatologist! He's caring, knowledgeable, and takes his time to actually listen. I was so happy to find him thanks to a friend's recommendation - I had just about given up on other derms that were rushed and didn't listen to me! : ) He's awesome - Dr. Davis makes dermatology fun!  Respond

10/06/09 5 4 5 5 Dr Davis is a wonderful Dr. He is very knowledgable and willing to spend time with you. You never feel rushed and you always leave with an answer. As with most Dr's office's there is usually a wait before you see him, but it is not an unreasonable amount of time. If you need a referral to a Dermatoligist Dr Davis is the one to go to.  Respond

21/11/07 4 3 5 5 Dr Davis is the sweetest Derm ever!! He's does tend to run a bit late but he takes the time to listen to your issues and recommends only the best treatments that he'd do on his loved ones! He's been known to even undercharge for tx's because he's just the most personable Derm you'd ever find! He'll tell you to forego an expensive tx sometimes and just do a simple tx instead if that's all you need! He's so knowledgeable and can give you all the pros and cons of not just Derm txs but also cosmetic procedures! I recommend him to all of my friends! He's the BEST!  Respond

01/07/07 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Davis for a hair loss problem and thought he was wonderful. I didn't feel rushed and felt he listened to me. I had even come in to the office without having had lunch and felt a bit woozy,and he went out to the reception area and brought me back a snack. He took a biopsy and arranged for the stitches to be later removed by someone closer to my home so I would not have to make the trip all the way down to his office for this small procedure. He later phoned me with the diagnosis, explaining everything in detail. I thought he was personable and extremely helpful.  Respond

01/06/07 4 5 5 I went to see Dr. Michael Davis regarding some skin issues and found him to be the most knowledgable, friendly, helpful, courteous and professional Dr I have ever seen. Dr. Davis completely went out of his way to ensure I was comfortable during treatment and his follow-up care was exceptional! Thank you Dr. Davis!!! Since then, I have referred a number of family and friends who are thrilled with his services :)  Respond

27/05/07 1 1 2 I went to see Dr. Davis after waiting 3 months for an appt. He referred me to a clinic that did all kinds of "body work" which I had no interest nor the amount of money required to fix my problem. He wouldn't look at a mole that I had because I didn't book the appt. for that and I was told to come back with a family dr.'s requisition. Is this the way to help people, or is it a way to make money. This doctor runs a people meat market as far as I am concerned. He should be in a money making practice and opt out of OHIP altogether! I wouldn't go back to him if he was the last dermatologist on planet earth.  Respond

27/04/07 2 1 1 He recommends dangerous treatments like Artecoll which is proven to leave bumps in your skin which need to be surgically removed and Restylane to a patient who came to him seeking help for a botched up dermabrasion which left severe scarring. He was all smiley and cooed 'How wonderful' at a procedure that was invasive and proven to leave scars. What a nincompoop. He's a waste of time and resources.  Respond
