Dr. Walid Alhoussan's Ratings
EXCELLENT doctor! Very humanitarian attitude! He takes the time to talk with you and address all your concerns. He was in Aylmer (Gatineau), Québec before and I continue with him after he went in Ontario to start a practice on his own years ago as I found him above many other doctors I have encountered. I come from s family of doctors (they all live far from me) and I know a good doctor when I see one and I would not change family doctors for the world. He can take patients even without an appointment (walk-in) or even if you are his regular patient if the need arises. When I needed to get to a specialist, he made all the referrals for me without hesitation when other doctors had not been listening to me in the past. I am sticking to Dr. Walid Al Houssan and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to anyone without hesitation. He is very busy and sometimes his staff is a little bit 'short' and lacks patience but this is NO reflection on him and he will take your comments on his staff if you do bring them up. You just need to be a bit 'patient' with his staff whom I know work hard too in long busy days. Overall, this is the place for me and the number of patients which flock test alone attests in itself as to the great quality of this medical practice. If you come in without an appointment, of course you will have to wait and the staff will give you an approximate waiting time. If the clinic is BUSY, you can on some occasions have to wait for a couple of hours but then again doctors taking 'walk-ins' are fairly rare these days so count yourself lucky. He take both the Ontario OHIP card and the Québec Health card - he speaks both French and English and I think Arabic too (but he is native of Damascus, Syria) and is a VERY GOOD, KIND and HUMANITARIAN doctor and genuinely upholds his Hipocratic Oath with skill and dignity for people. The people criticizing him here have no idea what they are talking about - if they knew this doctor for as long as I have, they should be ashamed of putting out the garbage they have done here!
I dont understand those people who goes to a doctor and need him to babysit them, i have been with dr. Alhossan for three years now, he is such a great doctor, he doesn't need to talk to me in a very soothing voice to satisfy me, he only needs to fix my medical problem and he always do in a very professional way, he know exactly what should be done, so don't go there just to put him into a test, get over you childish behavior people , it a clinic not a spa, I highly recommend such a brilliant doctor.
I had heard great feedback from this doctor, that is why I went to see him. The staff was okay, and they were on time. BUT, the service I received was nothing less than horrible. Dr. Alhoussan seemed a little on edge when he got to work, closing doors and cabinets very loudly, making a lot of noise. When he got to where I was waiting, he did not great me or even look at me, he just asked for the problem. His questions and instructions were very unclear, french or english. He did not listen or consider what I told him. He was unsensitive and unprofessional. I am VERY disapointed, a little pissed off and truly hurt : you would think that a DOCTOR would treat his patients with more respect and tact. I have a serious problem, and I was treated like a child who is refusing to cooperate. Don't go there, that's all I am saying.
I love this doctor, he is very talented and smart, he was treating the whole family and still sending him more, he dosen't like to waist his time because he respect other patients time, I never had to wait more that 30min unlike the other WI clinics, Arabic people like to talk A LOT (im Arabic too) and don't care who is waiting in the waiting room, thats why they dont like him, he dosen't like to talk much, I never had to go to him for the same problem twice because he treats it RIGHT from the first time, he is genius.
The worst Doctor ever. Stay away from him. Unpleasant, don't care about what you have to tell him, I will not recommend him even for my pet. My little one needs a recommendation to be followed by a psychiatric, he refuses to deliver just because we came for another reason first!!!! He has no humanity. I am angry yes but not about him but about who deliver him the opportunity to be a doctor. Again, don't deserve even to take care about pets. For whom who think it's racism, I am Arabic my self.
Another one of these doctors who makes it abundantly clear from the moment he walks into the room that his main concern is getting rid of you as quickly as possible. Didn't seem particularly interested in hearing all my symptoms and background on my problem. I don't recommend this doctor and definitely won't be going back.
I found myself looking for another Dr when I wasn’t given the choice of prescription drugs because of severe side effects. I found myself feet cramping to the point I couldn’t sleep for 4 months and driving. I came across Dr. Walid Alhoussan and checked his credentials which he has a superior education. He is very knowledgeable in body anatomy and the pharmaceutical industry. Dr. Alhoussan always listens to my concerns and symptoms. I am very satisfied with his feedback. I always listen to what he says and the results are accurate. He is always ready and available when I come through his clinic. No matter how long I have to wait that’s the guy I need to speak to and see for my health reasons and conditions. His clinic is clean, nicer than others, central and always busy. He is very pleasant and understanding. CEO in Biotechnology and Aerospace.
A friend recommended Dr. Al-Houssan, and I have been a patient of him since nearly two years. He is very smart, knowledgeable and caring. He treated my complexed and routine and medical issues with dedication and perseverance. He is professional and also a very positive person. The office management ensures that all appointments begin and end within the time scheduled. They are kind and compassionate.
We've had this doctor since he opened the clinic Dec. 1, 2010 because our previous doctor retired. We are quite satisfied with Dr. Alhoussan's medical practice and when needed sends you for tests, discuss regarding medications and follow-ups if necessary. The staff are always courteous when calling or in person and they will accommodate you all the time. People need to be patience at time they have to understand beside a walk-in clinic the doctor also sees his regular patients with appointments. Overall we are very satisfied with this doctor.
