03/04/14 5 4 5 5 I have been a patient at Dr OK Medical Centre for about 5 years. Over the years Dr Klipich was able to organize a consulting medical centre staffed with high class specialists. He even organized a center of cardiology. I am a patient of Dr Belsky. She is treating me very professionally, very attentive to my requests. I feel love and kindness towards me from all staff at the clinic. It is also very convenient to have pharmacy on premises. I wish everyone in Toronto to have the same doctors like in Dr OK medical Centre.

04/02/14 5 5 5 5 Doctor Klipitch has been my and my child's family doctor for last 3-4 years. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and caring person. I had experience with at least three family doctors prior to becoming a patient of Dr.Klipitch and without a doubt can say that he is much more superior to any of those doctors that I knew before. He is unbeatable when it comes to the broadness of medical knowledge, quickness of referrals, advanced connections within the medical community and thoroughness of follow-ups. His previous surgical/urological experience from Europe is yet another great asset making him a great choice for any one looking for a reliable family doctor.

25/08/13 5 5 5 5 As a 2nd year medical student I had a 2 week horizontal elective with Dr Klipitch who runs a busy primary care centre. Dr Klipitch possesses impressive clinical & academic expertise. He doesn't hesitate to explain the fine points of medicine in a friendly & relaxed manner. He closely follows the latest in evidence-based practices & research. Dr Klipitch never rushes the patients. While some problems can be managed in a 7min visit, most require more time to ensure nothing is missed. Dr Klipitch and his admin/assistant staff are fluent in English, Russian, Ukrainian & Polish. There is a positive & congenial atmosphere amongst physicians & staff. Facility is spacious & clean, with modern equipment. Dr Klipitch uses electronic medical record system for efficient & quick transfer of information. Location is very convenient. Dentistry, Pharmacy & Physiotherapy are also on site. In short, everything is done to ensure highest quality of care. It was an excellent learning experience.  Respond

03/05/12 5 5 5 5 Excellent Doctor! Well worth waiting for 1,5 hours – this is the drawback of his own popularity! Having graduated medical training both in Ukraine and Canada, he is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable. Once in his office you never feel rushed and you always leave with an answer. He explained in details all my questions, treated me with greatest amount of respect and took time to deal with my issues Not hesitant to recommend you to a specialist if required. I would definitely recommend him and I would go back to him.  Respond

19/03/12 2 1 2 2 I had my appointment on Saturday at 1:30 in the afternoon. At 3:00 his secretary took me to doctor's room. 3:15 doctor show up. He did not said sorry that i was waiting for so long. He just ask me why i came. When i told his the reason why i came, he told me to wait again, because he had another patient in the other room. I had to wait another 20 minutes. At 3:40 doctor show up again. I told him i have at 4:00 another appointment and i can't allow my clients wait for me for 2 hours. I will loose them. All i needed from this doctor is just his signature. I told this doctor, this is not Ukraine, that doctors can do what they feel like it. He gave me some papers, and ask me i would comeback, which i replied, would you comeback if you were me. He did not answer my question. If you a senior person and can wait more than 2 hours i would recommend. But if you do have a life i would not recommend this doctor. I'm definitely not coming back again. One of the worst doctors i have ever met.  Respond

I recommend Dr. Klipitch to all my friends and they are all happy.We never will change Dr. Klipitch to another doctor- it is NO BETTER ONE.I wish some doctors in Ontario could learn from him, how to take care of patients.

01/03/12 1 1 1 1 Horrible service. My appointment was scheduled for 11:00am and I got called in at 1:30. Spoke about an unrelated problem the entire time. And when I asked him to check something he said i needed to schedule another appointment because that particular appointment was scheduled for only 1 thing. His staff is extremely unprofessional and do not even know how to speak English! And that entire office, is a huge discusting fashion show. People come there to get help and no to check out new technology or new decorations.  See Responses

08/01/12 5 4 5 5 We have had a few family doctors before and we are very happy that finally we have Family Doctor who actually cares about health of all 6 members of our family. My in-laws (in their 70-s) got all attention they've needed and referrals to excellent specialists who helped with serious cardio problems. Dr. Klipitch was right in his diagnosis and my wife was able to prevent major health issue. Thanks to his treatment I was able to get rid of antidepressants that were "the only solution" according to my previous family doctor. As for the kids - we have peace of mind that if the need arise we have a Doctor who will take care of them. We definitely recommend Dr. Klipitch to anyone who appreciates knowledge, care and professionalism.  Respond

03/01/12 3 1 1 1 I will never go back to this doctor again. He is ignorant, rude, far from helpful, and spends half of his time on his cell-phone during every appointment I've had with him. Every time I received a referral from Dr.Klipitch to see a specialist, the referral is never received on the other line and I'm left having to hunt down my records and transfer the information myself. I also noticed that he's rude to his staff and on top of all of this, I have to wait at least an hour (if I'm lucky) past my appointment time. The only positive thing about his clinic are the receptionists, but even then, there's a communication barrier if you do not speak fluent Ukrainian.  Respond

06/12/11 5 5 5 5 I can't understand what makes people write such a silly comments that Dr. Klipitch treat his staff badly. I am a new member of a team and have only very good impressions about working environment. Dr.klipitch is always friendly, respectful and attentive to people around. Besides, I haven't even smallest reason to doubt his knowledge and professionalism, taking into accounthis his broad medical experience and a number of thankful patients who exit our office. As to our professionalism we always try our best in helping patients with variety of different issues and do not have problems in utilizing whatever we have to at our workplace.  Respond

03/12/11 4 4 5 5 1- Dr OK more than OK. I agree you might wait for a while to see him, but you never feel like being kicked out of the room when your 5 minutes passed. You get all the time and attention it is needed that explains waiting time.( by the way none of us below has complained that Dr Ok spends too much time with a patient).2-Staff could be better, but I have seen much worse. If you don't get a big Canadian smile at least you can get simple instructions what to do next. 3- I have had 3 appointments so far and still fully satisfied. It looks like Dr. OK has no problems to send you for an extra test or refer to a specialist, but he looked confident enough to deal with my issues himself. 4- Knowledge hard to judge if you aren't Doc, but for me and my parents the best option so far, we have got mere than expected. 5-One Stop Shop works for me (don't understand why people are complaining). Try to get GP and Dental appointments with in 1.5 hours on Saturday. Good luck trying.  Respond

28/11/11 1 1 1 1 Dr. Klipitch is very unprofessional.. He always makes idiotic comments and treats his staff in a bad way. The wait time is ridiculous and his staff has no idea how to properly use their own system at the office. This Dr. is not the greatest and I would not recommend him to any of my friends or family members!!! He has to learn how to deal with people in a more professional matter and also he has to learn not to use his cell phone while assessing ppl.  Respond

14/07/11 4 4 5 5 Dr. Oleg Klipitch is a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable physician who attends to each patient with respect, understanding, and caring. At each appointment he goes out of his way to analyze all possible causes of a problem, and at the lowest suspicion of something more serious goes out of his way to get a specialist to see you within 2-3 days. Dr. Klipitch listens to your problems and does all in his power to help. There is a pharmacy located conveniently adjoining to the clinic, and the doctor goes out of his way to make you feel as one of his own. Dr. Klipitch truly cares deeply about his patients, his profession is what he loves to do and one can see that he is not in it for money or fame or creating a name, he simply wants to help those in need.  Respond

24/06/11 4 4 5 5 Almost two years ago I came to see Dr. Klipitch, and was impressed how he had approached my problem, how thorough he was during the assessment & diagnosis. I then convinced my husband to switch to Dr. Klipitch as well. We are very happy that Dr. Klipitch opened his own practice and is able to assist our community that badly requires knowledgeable professionals. Dr. Klipitch proved to be knowledgeable doctor who treats his patients as personalities, as oppose to another Health Card number swipe; he is extremely effective in preventative methods of medicine, diagnosis process and treating diagnosed conditions. Last event lived through exceeded our expectations. Right after seeing Dr. Klipitch on a very short notice I was sent to ER. Not only Dr. Klipitch checked on my status while I was at the hospital, he also had arranged a meeting with a specialist to address my condition afterwards. Dr. Klipitch is a Doctor with capital “D” and we are very happy to be his patients.  Respond

16/05/11 5 5 5 5 I had few family doctors, before becoming a patient of Dr. Klipitch, none of them was any close to what I found about Dr. Klipitch. I am very happy with Dr. Klipitch, because he always is helpful, extremely knowledgeable, capable to look at your problem "outside the box" and suggest the proper treatment. One thing that I like about him, that he is not trying to sell the services of his office or other doctors. He is only doing what can help your body to heal quickly without getting into "side-effects" of the major course of the treatment. Over the last year I had few visits and never had to wait longer than half an hour beyond the scheduled appointment time, which I think is very much acceptable. His staff is always helpful and doing their job right. I wish I become his patient at the time I came to Canada. I would recommend Dr. Klipitch to anyone who is seeking professional medical help for the whole family.

Does not allow to bring more then one issue at the time of one visit!  Respond
RID: 1238158
26/08/10 2 1 3 3 I am sorry to say that but I didn't really experience that "extra mile". You can wait in his office for hours when you have an APPOINTMENT!!! Once, I asked him why do I need to wait for so long and he could only say that it's not his fault, and that he doesn't even know how the receptionist sets up his appointments. WHAT??? Once, I made an appointment for a Pap test and I also requested to get back my results on a regular check-up on my heart condition. I waited 2 hours to see him just like always, he did a Pap test and when I asked him to discuss my heart echo, he said that he doesn't have the results in front of him, that receptionist can prepare it for next time, and that he can only do ONE issue per visit (meaning only Pap test in my case, nothing else)! I also didn't experience any special attention to my problems. Yes, I'm young, but that doesn't mean that I'm automatically 100% healthy and he made it sound like that. I was disappointed in him, even though my mom recommends him.  Respond
