17/07/14 1 1 1 1 As of today I'll be looking for a new Doctor. I am currently 5 weeks pregnant and unfortunately the urine sample she tested today came back negative. She proceeded to tell me that I should just go home and wait to start bleeding - but it wouldn't be considered a miscarriage because it's too early. (HUH!?!?) She also stated that I should "Just be grateful" because I already have a son. I came home and took a home pregnancy test - POSITIVE. I'm not upset that the tests they used in her office weren't sensitive enough; I get it, its early. However, I shouldn't be told to go home and wait to bleed. I've never seen bedside manner SO awful. This isn't the first time I've had issues with this nut. She shouldn't be a Doctor. Her lack of knowledge and compassion blows my mind. I'm currently on hold with Service Ontario to discontinue my enrollment as her patient. I hope the College of Physicians and Surgeons takes away her license. She's a danger to society.  Respond

29/06/14 1 2 1 1 When asked about my family history, I mentioned a condition my dad has and she asked ME what that was. Umm...you're the doctor...shouldn't you know?? Definitely not reassuring and a huge red flag. Also, when I asked her a question about something I was concerned about, she told me to Google it! I definitely would NOT recommend going to her.  Respond

23/06/14 1 1 1 1 Wow!!! She must have went to med school in a meth lab. She is out to lunch. She said my baby was underweight, but she actually screwed up the scales because when I saw another doctor, my baby was above average height, and normal weigh. But it was clear by just looking at the chubby legs and cheeks that the baby is healthy!!! She said that babies should never wear sunscreen because it has too much deet in it!!!! I said "do you mean bug spray" she said no, sunscreen. This lady is not only uneducated, she is dumb.  Respond

03/05/14 5 1 1 1 This doctor is absolutely useless. she doesn't help in anyway. she is reluctant in writing prescriptions and completely ignorant she doesn't listen to what you say at times cutting you off and she never really addresses the problem I've seen her twice and both times I thought I should have seen a different doctor. My advice to anyone going to a walk-in clinic in the area is to ask who the doctor is and if its her drive to oshawa trust me you will save your time and actually get help elsewhere. anyone with her as there family doctor I'd rather have a doctor in another province I had to drive all the way to then this doctor.  Respond

01/08/13 1 1 1 1 Dr Quadir is a awful doctor, my son was very sick she wouldn't give a referral for him to see a paediatrician. I kept insisting after the 5th time going in with him she agreed to refer him. She told me to find the doctor and call her staff to tell them to which doctor. She couldn't take the time to find him someone. She is the most disrespectful person, when I would go in with my husband about my health she would only talk to my husband. I could go on for hours why she is the worst doctor I have ever seen, in the mean time my family all have a new doctor. I wouldn't recommend anyone to have her as a doctor.

03/07/13 1 1 1 1 It seems as if there is a lack of knowledge. I avoid going to the doctor if I have a problem. If you have a question, she seems clueless when giving her answer. I am currently looking for a new doctor, but in the meantime, I will be going to a walk-in if I need to.  Respond

13/06/13 3 2 1 1 I had to take my 1yr old son to the clinic as our family doctor was not working and this visit was a huge waste of time as Dr Quadir had no helpful information to give us and did not even want to check my son out. She looked at him and said he was fine without even taking the time to check his temperature; it wasn't until I insisted that she said she would do it. When I started to ask questions to try to get some useful information out of her, she told me “I will ask the questions!, and you answer them” I have the same input as most the of above comments had, that this doctor is either unknowledgeable or just doesn’t care and wants to get through the patients as quick as possible. I would strongly recommend that if she is working the clinic to choose another clinic. I have made an appointment with our family doctor today. Its very sad that we have Dr. like this and with such bad ratings  Respond

22/04/13 3 3 1 1 Useless Doctor. I need to tell her which specialist I need to be refered too, and what medications to give me. She is also disrespectful, I am 27 years old, married, and living on my own, and yet she only follows through on promises when my parents come to my appts..... I only have Fridays off, so I book all appts for fridays...She has cancelled almost every one of them so she could have a day off. Why book an appt if I your not going to keep it. I am left without my medications due to this...UNKNOWLEDGABLE and USESLESS

04/01/13 5 3 1 1 Dr.Quadir is very unknowledgeable. I have had nothing but problems each time I have seen her. She seemed nice at my first appointment but when I went in for some issues and she checked my ear she went in too far and it really hurt to the point where I screamed and pulled away. Then she asked me what's wrong and said that it couldn't have hurt because it was a pediatric one. What happened to the patient comes first? I was so mad that I never wanted to go back to see her again. When I recently had to go back, unfortunately, she made me feel very uncomfortable and stupid. I am going to find a new doctor because others I have talked to that have her don't like her either. I am having a baby and I don't want my baby to be in her care. I don't trust her.

22/09/12 1 3 1 1 I haven't been too impressed with this Dr. or the staff. Dr. Quadir doesn't seem comfortable with anything other than basic health questions or needs such as prescription refills. I waited almost a month to hear back from them regarding a referal to an OB/GY and when I called them to see what the status was, they informed me they forgot to tell me that the OB I wanted had a 3 month waiting list. At that time I was 4 months pregnant and as far as I'm concerned, they were wasting my time. I could have spent that month finding another OB/GY. Dr. Quadir has given me incomplete paper work to take with me to get blood tests done, which resulted in not being able to have the test completed, and having to make more appointments and more trips out of my way. I really wish I could sit here and give a good review but I've had nothing but problems. If you're looking for a new Dr. please take this comment into consideration. Dr. Quadir does come across as a nice person but she lacks knowledge.

16/05/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. S. Quadir is very thorough, concerned, gentle and kind. I was very impressed with her upon my first visit. She made me feel that I was important and my issues were important. She is very polite and considerate. I like her very much. I would recommend her, especially to ladies who have gone through years with Dr.s (male) who have not taken their very serious health issues seriously. I am very impressed with the cleanliness of the office and the care workers. So glad to finally have found a caring physician.  Respond
