Dr. Andrei Metelitsa's Ratings
I only have very positive things to say about Dr. Metelitsa! I have gone to a few other doctors prior to him but, none of them can even compare to his knowledge and patient compassion. I have been to him several times and he always takes the time to listen to my concerns. He offers wonderful and in depth explanations to my medical procedures. He also sets me at ease if I am nervous and anxious. I completely trust Dr. Metelista 100%. He is the best dermatologist in Calgary by far. I would recommend him to any of my friends.
He spent all of 4 minutes with me after waiting 50 minutes after my alleged appointment time. Gave me no opportunity to ask any question even though on the form they ask you to fill out I indicated that there were a couple of other items I wanted to speak to him about. So after a wait of 2/1/2 months for my appointment I had 4 minutes with this man and he slammed the door as he was leaving....and he is going to charge Alberta Health Care HOW MUCH for that visit. Disgusting, it became quite apparent they are in it for the money, not for helping or providing a service.
I initially met Dr. Metelitsa 2 years ago when my family doctor referred me for an itchy spot on my back. Instead of giving me yet another fungus cream, Dr. Metelitsa did a biopsy that unfortunately, showed that I had a basal skin cancer. I was obviously shocked and angry that it was missed by my other doctor. My cancer was removed and I have seen Dr. Metelitsa 4 times since my diagnosis and happy that I am still cancer free. Needless to say I trust this doctor.
Dr. Metelitsa is a very knowledgeable dermatologist. He was able to diagnose my condition and prescribe treatment almost instantly. I would definitely see him again, he knows his stuff. My only issue is that he made me feel a bit rushed, but I understand he's busy with many patients to see.
I was referred to Dr M for female hair loss. Although I was disappointed that there aren't many options for this I was pleased with Dr M's honesty in telling me that there aren't many treatments that work for this instead of offering expensive medications or procedures that will cost me a fortune and won't do much. He did ensure all of my blood work was normal and did give me a script and a few OTC options. Overall his knowledge was great, he and his nurses were very compassionate towards my condition and although I left the office with not much hope in regards to my hair loss, I feel educated and satisfied and I will definately return to this office in the future!
Dr. Metelitsa is great, however the reception staff at his office are extremely rude and unaccomodating! I was told by the Dr to book a follow up appointment for a year later, but a year later I was on holidays. So i try to book when I get back and i'm told because it has been more than a year i have to go back to my family doctor to be referred again, even though he was the one who told me to come back!! What a complete inconvenience. The receptionist very rudely tells me this is their policy and theres nothing she can do! What a completely rediculous policy! Maybe they should be telling their patients this in advance !
I am so thankful I met this doctor. He immediately diagnosed my nasty spot on my cheek that looked like cancer from hell to me as a non-serious issue. He then used some kind of lazer to remove this spot. It's been about 3 weeks now and I can barely find where it was. I could not be happier.
First off I'd like to say is that the staff is AMAZING! Dr. Metelitsa was right on the dot for my appointment time even though the clinic was busy. I went in with a problem and walked out with a solution, and I couldn't be happier with the results. He listened to what I had to say and then gave his feedback. Not only is Dr. Metelitsa knowledgeable, but he's got an amazing and positive attitude. I recommend this doctor and believe he will give every patient a possible outcome. I love that this doctor is honest and doesn't waste time beating around the bush. He gets to the point. If you want results, I highly recommend Dr. Andrei Metelitsa. BEST experience I've ever had, and I'm not easy to please :)
This doctor has absolutely no bedside manner whatsoever. He spent probably about 3-4 minutes with me in total and the appointment was a total waste of my - and evidently his - time. I came in for mild acne, noticeable bubble-like growths under my eyes, and very large pores. In short, my complexion is terrible. He told me there's "absolutely nothing, period." that can be done about the glands under my eyes and that pores are untreatable. Then he went on to boast about how he has worked with the "top guys at Harvard" and lectures on this stuff all the time. He's supposed to be a specialist and yet I got absolutely nothing out of my appointment. They herd patients through that office like cattle. If you want a personable doctor, do not see this one.
