Dr. Prasad de Silva's Ratings
Very pleased with Dr. de Silva. He is very helpful and very, very knowledgeable. Have been going to him since he started practice. One should not think because of his quiet composure that he is not knowledgeable. He will take care of all your medical problems, and if something requires a specialist he will refer you without you having to prompt him to do so. How lucky London is to have this doctor. Sometimes the wait is longer than one would like simply because he is trying to accommodate patients. But you can ask the staff how many ahead of you and if there are too many you can get another time and come back. Also if it is the walk in portion and you have no appointment you can still discuss your medical problems without him telling you that it is the walk in and only one medical issue allotted - as it is in other walk ins. this is very generous. What more can a patient ask for?
He does not know what some of the illnesses i have are and he tried to send me for heart tests when it was my lungs and sinuses. He was taking longer on a physical of my husband and son in their lower regions then what was needed i have not taken my son back to him and my husband has refused to go back. This doctor should go back to school or not be practicing at all by all means avoid him at all costs if you care about your health.
Would like to have rated the staff higher, but the new Asian secretary is rude. She acts more like a hostess at a fancy restaurant than a medical clinic.
The doctor knows his stuff, very professional.
He is a fine doctor in terms of knowledge and bedside manner. He does not take a lot of time for useless chit chat and small talk, so if you want a friend go elsewhere. But if you want to be in and out efficiently with a knowledgeable doctor, he fits the bill! I also find it useful that you can see him on appointment or for last minute, you can wait for a walk in appointment.
Prescribed medicine for my kids without checking them. For my 6 year old prescribed adult dosage. Just rushes through the appointment. No value for time, have to wait 1 hour to see him. Avoid him at all costs.
We do NOT recommend this Dr. We were so excited to be accepted to a family practice after looking for a long while, and I personally chose to keep going to walk-ins after my first appointment with him. My husband stuck with him and went several times to see him (only because he has a chronic heath concern that requires monitoring), but was also always dismayed by his visits. Dr. de Silva does NOT listen, he is NEVER on time (often leaving us waiting for over an hour even with an appointment) and NEVER offered anything beyond the most basic of health care. He does NOT make any effort to familiarize himself with conditions he hasn't worked with before, he does NOT offer up-to-date or well-researched options and he does NOT suggest any testing or procedure that might require extra work or effort on his part. He should NOT be your family doctor, if you can avoid it.
Outright Incompetent doesn't listen to concerns just seems like he wants to bill OHIP and prescribe drugs to get kick backs (Non narcotic to avoid being red flagged and stay under the radar). He will argue with you and go against pharmacy knowledge and verified studies of drug side effects. Makes comments how he works almost for free so the government can give his money to the social programs. This doctor is a total waste of time ignores most of what is said just to get you out quick and bill for another patient. Almost seems as if he built his new walk in clinic to get new doctors in to gain residual income for when he retires in the next few years but also doesn't care about the people he sees other than for the OHIP billing and not their well being. Wonder how many died of cancer that complained to him for years while he ignored their issues that might have otherwise been able to get treated early and live. Seems very biased against the people he is suppose to serve.
Dr. DeSilva is a very professional, very helpful, understanding doctor...he answered all my questions, his receptionists are very friendly i would highly recommend him if you need to see a doctor! =)
