08/04/14 2 2 1 1 He did not care for the issue I was in for and just keep fixating on something else I would not recommend him. GETS OFF TOPIC EASLIY  Respond

11/03/14 3 3 2 1 I will never ever recommend this doctor to anyone. He seems to be rushing all the time and does not seem to be interested in the concern a parent carries to him. My son was not eating well at all since he turned 6 months. I tries to convey this to Dr Hegde while also telling him that my son is getting weaker and weaker. This doctor never paid attention to my concern and ultimately my son was diagnosed with severe iron deficiency at the age of two. We have actually suffered on our son's health because a bad choice of paediatrician. He is really a very bad doctor for babies and kids.  Respond

14/12/12 5 5 5 4 Dr.Hegde is a great doctor, always listens to what i have to say, and the receptionist is amazing. She is so organized and always does her best to get me in. Even when i go in as a walk in, the wait time is nothing compare to other walk in clinic's. As much as the love the convience of this clinic, I seriously think that the clinic should be closed for Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. Its not fair that people that celebrate Christmas should have to work. They deserve this holiday to spend with there family.  Respond

27/10/10 1 1 1 1 Dr. Hegde is a HORRIBLE dr. He is rude and doesn't listen to anything I have to say. You cannot understand him at all, when I asked him to repeat things, he got upset and annoyed with me. He also did a detail inspection of my son's penis when that had NOTHING to do with a concern of skin tags on his underarm. I also noticed that they reuse their ear guards, which is completely unacceptable. Also, the rest of the office is so incredibly filthy...my skin was crawly while sitting in the waiting room and then even worse when I was in the room. A dr's office should be one of the cleanest, well this was dirtier than some public washrooms I've been in.  Respond

31/08/10 5 5 5 5 One of the best doctors around. We have been seeing Dr. Hegde for about 6 years now after our family doctor could not help with a referral (apparently it had to come from a pediatrician). I thought he was so good that I asked if we could see him with our 2 children from then on. I now have 4 children and we still continue to see him (even after a lengthy stay out of country we came right back to him). He has always remembered who we are and in fact always waves and smiles hi to all of us when he sees us sitting in his waiting room. He has also always stayed in the room until I understand the diagnosis or until he has heard all of my concerns and addresses them. Yes, he has an accent but when I don't understand I just ask him to repeat the answer and he doesn't seem to have a problem with that. I would definitely recommend him and his assistant. Very caring office.  Respond

11/02/10 1 3 3 2 I took my kids to dr hegde and it has been very disappointing experience. Dr Hegde does not explain anything even after being asked several times. His clinic was going to make a referal for my son and its been over 7 weeks & I havent heard anything yet. I would never recommend him to anyone. its waste of your time.  Respond

19/01/10 5 5 5 5 Great doctor. He is the one who diagnosed my son's condition, after we had been going from doctor to doctor frustrated. He is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain. He was very sensitive to our concerns. I would highly recommend him.  Respond

27/10/09 3 3 1 2 I did not find Dr.Hegde helpful at all and to be honest he was really quite rude. I will not be taking my daughter to see him again. I practically had to fight with him just for a referal to the allergy specailist and it turns out that my daughter is allergic to peanuts so why he had to fight with me is beyond me.  Respond

15/09/09 5 5 5 5 Im am a kid who has been going to him since I was born. Sure you dont understand a thing he says but the perscriptions that he gives work and I've never had a better doctor. Im only 11 years old but I'd go there until I was 1000 years old if I could.  Respond

23/02/09 1 1 1 1 Dr.Hegde is a horrible doctor. We were recommend to him by the school for our daughter who has ODD/ADHD. He spent a total of 5 minutes with our daughter before writing a prescription. He has a thick accent which made it very hard to udnerstand him. I declined the med's until she was further diagnosed. We went back for a second visit, he had no clue who we were never paid any attention to our daughter. Asked why we were there and wrote a prescription, didn't explain anything about it. I got all the information about it by googling the meds. I would NEVER EVER recommend this doctor. And if you care at all about your child you will never take him there.  Respond

27/01/09 5 5 2 3 I went to Dr Hegde with my then 8 week old baby to help determine why her cold had lasted 3 weeks and why she was crying inconsolably. My regular MD was no help and I was grateful to get in with a pediatrician. Dr Hegde saw me within a 2 days which was great. He was on time for our appt also a plus. He doesn't have much of a bedside manner but obviously loves kids (he pretty much ignored me but played with my daughter as he checked her out). He told me just to put her in a humid room (he been doing that for weeks) and that it would pass. The cold did eventually pass but using various books I figured out the cause for the crying myself (colic...allergy to dairy and chocolate I was eating through the breast-milk. I haven't gone back but we may go to see if there's any improvment.  Respond

31/12/08 4 5 3 3 he doesn't speak very clear english and dismisses most of what I try to tell him about my children and has written me 2 perscriptions for medications that don't even exist. I've been takling my 4 children there for years and he doesn't rememebr us from visit to visit which annoys me. that said I still go to him cause he is easy to get into and we are usually seen at our appointment time which I appreciate.  Respond

29/10/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hegde has taken care of my kids now 16 and 17 years old since infantcy. He is a kind and compassionate doctor that truly cares about his patients. As a parent, I can tell you that he will leave no stone unturned until he has the proper diagnosis. He is a very intelligent man and we have benefited from his expertise and many years of experience. My family dreads the day Dr. Hegde retires because to us he is irreplaceable. The Field Family  Respond

28/06/07 3 3 1 2 Never enough direction and never answers questions....Always seems rushed and does not follow through with thing...have to remind him of tests he needs to book or send us for and have to remind him why we are in his office...To say the least we are going to someone else and I am sure we will have better care for our children...Did not feel comfortable taking my kids to him...  Respond
