19/06/14 5 3 5 5 After waiting months for my appointment with Dr. Mah, I can now see why I waited! She is very knowledgeable and thorough in her exams. When I arrived for my appointment I was advised that she was running behind (I assume this was because of a delivery) and the two girls she has working there were extremely friendly and welcoming. When she arrived back at the office I was quickly taken in to a room. Dr. Mah was very friendly and explained to me the cause of my troubles. I have read through the previous reviews on here and was apprehensive about attending the appointment, however, now that I have met her, I look forward to working with her to resolve my problems! She is wonderful doctor who knows exactly what she is doing. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a no b*llsh*t doctor who will fix the problem rather than just mask it.  Respond

18/06/14 5 3 5 5 had nothing but the best experience for both pregnancies with Dr. Mah and her staff. Sure, I waited sometimes for a short 5 minute appointment, the staff always alerted me when I checked in for my appointment if she was at the hospital for a delivery. The reason I chose Dr. Mah was because of how hands on she was said to be with each of her patients deliveries. Dr. Mah always made time in my appointments to ask if I had any questions and always answered when I did. Both of my deliveries were C-Sections, and I did not have any complications from either surgery. I have had multiple paps and an IUD, no issues.  Respond

02/01/14 3 5 5 5 I was referred to Dr. Mah for my first pregnancy. After reading all the negative reviews on this site regarding her practice; I had to come back and leave a positive review. It seems to me that some of the people on this site are looking for something to complain about. Dr. Mah treated me with the utmost respect, as did the nurse. She took the time to discuss my concerns with me, and did a very thorough exam, and explained everything as she was doing it. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a great Ob-Gyn. Her office was clean and organized, and only myself and one other lady in the waiting room, besides the husbands and boyfriends waiting for their wives. I personally enjoyed my experience and will enjoy having Dr. Mah handle my pregnancy from beginning to end.

10/11/12 2 1 1 1 I had the misfortune of meeting her twice, the 1st time was to confirm ovarian cysts which she was VERY abrupt in the exam & then did a pap that I did NOT come in for that left me bleeding worse than my cycle til I went to emerge and they confirmed my cervix had been torn. When I had yelled during the exam she said "Oh it doesn't hurt THAT much, don't be a wimp!" I informed my doctor to NEVER refer me to her again. The 2nd time was in the Mis. Emerge. First she walks in the room with some arabic guy, doesn't say who he is or ask permission for his presence. RIPS the paper cover up over my head exposing my whole undercarriage, sent him for lube, took him more than 3 secs, so she RAMS her fingers in, PINCHES the swollen cyst, without loosening her grip yanks her hand back out and insists SHE will be doing the surgery. I assured her she would NOT be doing the surgery and got my doctor to refer me to a doctor that DOESN'T have the bedside manner of a rabid badger. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!  Respond

17/05/12 3 1 1 1 The only good thing I have to say about this doctor is that the awful treatment from her is what has inspired me to do something with my life to prevent it from happening to other vulnerable women. I went to her for my first pregnancy. She was consistently late, anywhere from 20 minutes to 2-3 hours. From sitting down in the exam room, to shutting the door was about 5 minutes, enough to find a heartbeat and avoid answering questions. If you were unlucky enough to get a pap, you'd get 15 minutes with her. She called me fat but only offered "stop eating pasta, potatoes, and dessert" as advice. I was induced over 3 days, she never showed the first day, made an appearance at 5pm the next day and said "we can either section you now, or try again tomorrow, where it's 50/50". I got a section and she ignored my complaints about my incision, which was infected. I read these reviews when I was first refeRred to her and I should've listened.

20/02/12 1 1 1 1 I say "unknowledgeable" as anyone with KNOWLEDGE would not put their patients through inconveniences like this.I will write to the College of Physicians and I urge you to do the same. If they need to reach me I'm sure I'll be easy to track though Dr. Mah's easy access line lollol Online here she gets 2.9/5 I give her ZERO!! I went to my scheduled appt today Feb 20 1315 Unless I am senile and not in Edmonton that's today. This appointment was booked back in October and was supposed to be considered Urgent (approximately 2 weeks I was told) I tried getting an earlier one but Dr Mah's office NEVER answers the phone and they don't accept meassages. HOW'S THAT FOR A DR'S OFFICE ??? I called again am before leavin the house ---. I arrive on time lights off, doors locked CLOSED FOR FAMILY DAY---I assume but noone told me. I accept messages gladly. It beats travelling 2 hrs by bus and waiting in the cold. No courtesy call,no apologies. She is a disgrace---totally unreliable. Thank you God..  Respond

16/01/12 1 1 1 1 Dr. Mah is always busy as she is one of the best in this field. Very impressed on the lady at the front desk (reception) by her poor working effort and poor attitude. She is so lazy, she has her bottom glued to the chair and most of the time she will unlikely to check alternate appointment time. She will not even reach for a few inches further to approach the patient. In addition, she always input patient's information wrong and usually have to wait 15+ minutes at the phone line. Dr. Mah, please consider to hire better staff.  Respond

29/11/11 3 1 1 2 Here's the thing about Dr.Mah - She's been an obgyn forever...she knows what she's talking about. However, I will NEVER see her again because she makes me feel bad about myself. Besides the fact that every time I have an appointment I have to wait an hour or more just to see her, she's quick, abrupt and rough during exams. The last time I saw her, she gave me a breast exam and said "do you like your breasts?" What? What kind of doctor asks that question? Then, she told me I had to lose weight because I had gained 7 pounds from my last visit. Yeah, I'm not even close to overweight. I would seriously avoid Dr. Mah at all costs...  Respond

17/10/11 2 1 1 2 My pregnancy with my daughter was in 2007, I didn't know what to expect. I thought her ubrupt uncaring attitude was normal. She rushed through every single appointment. Our first appointment she declared really obnoxiously "unfortunately it still has a heartbeat". I didn't feel like i was important nor did i feel like my baby was important. She didn't catch that I had gestational diabetes until i was 36 weeks she just kept telling me that it was normal to be weak shaky and thirsty all the time. I got Bacterial Vaginosis and told her her a few times that i thought something was wrong. All she said was if the results turn up something we will notify you. 2 weeks later i was bleeding and checked myself into misercordia hospital it was only then that she gave me the diagnosis. Terrible doctor. Never again. I'm planning on having a 2nd child never will I go back to this women. Despite my terrible experience i delivered a healthy baby girl I guess thats all that matters.  Respond

11/01/11 3 1 1 4 She knows what she is talking about. But doing it is another story. She stitched me up after labor (which she missed) without freezing. I told her the epidural didn't work but I don't think she believed me and just kept on going until I was screaming at her to give me a local. It was terrible. I was in so much pain. Then she asked if I needed drugs for when I go home I said yes t3s for the pain. She didn't look at me and said oh you don't need that your fine. I cried for the next month everytime I had to pee. It was terrible. I will never go to her again. But if you want a specilist then I guess you get what they give you. Blah!  Respond

08/01/11 2 2 2 3 If I had seen this site before I had met this doctor, I would have been spare a lot of pain and grief.Dr. Mah was to do a partial hysterectomy due to heavy periods as I have Fibromyalgia and am chronically fatigued all the time; I am a single mom with 2 young kids and I was hoping that perhaps this would help give me some energy back. Instead, I spent months being even more ill, lost 20 lbs and had abdominal wounds that didn't heal for 8 months. She went in and severed my ureter from my bladder while doing a lift I supposedly needed for my bladder{?}but instead of reattaching it to the same place, she just sewed it on to some random spot, leaving the open wound flowing liquids freely throughout my abdominal cavity. Not too healthy. Fortunately, when I lost total bladder control about 2 weeks after my surgery, I figured something was up, besides suspecting that I had caught MRSA from the Misericordia [which I did].This has all been proven-this is not libelous.Dr. Mador repaired me.  Respond

16/05/10 1 1 1 1 I worked with Dr. Mah for 2 years and let me tell you something whoever needs a GYNE DO NOT go to her. I will tell you why. 1. She rushes through paps with patients, that there was many incidents where patients would be rushed to the hospital cause Dr. Mah has punctured them inside. 2. She would yell at her staff infront of patients, that I have witnessed on several occassions, finally the patients would walk out and never come back. 3. The staff that she had werent educated in sterilizing the specs, Ive encounterd many dirty specs in the drawers. Overall, Dr. Mah should have her clinic shut down and she should have her licensed revoked. She is a brutal doctor to have and work for. It was getting to the point where I was going to punch that **** out, so one day I just walked out. Whoever reads this, I am telling you the truth, and I hope that you wont see this ****. Go to someone who actually cares about the patient care, cause Dr. Mah doesnt! HONEST!  Respond

14/05/10 3 3 5 5 I saw Dr. Mah in 2006 when I was pregnant with my 2nd child. I had seen her before and thought that she worked very fast and admittedly I felt rushed. So, on my 1st prenatal visit I went with my list. She saw that I had a list, she read it and addressed all my questions more efficiently than if I were to ask them myself. So from then on, I always had my list and it gave us time to discuss other things without feeling rushed... *** She also accommodated my curious 3 yr old daughter who accompanied me on some visits.*** How many Dr. even let you take your child in. She was very good at explaining things to me regarding some health issues I had. Towards the end I so wanted an early delivery (like most women at that stage) but she was very very good about acknowledging my concerns and advising me on what to do etc. While in the hospital delivering, she was so calm and reassuring. I was so relieved and happy that she was there. She really cares and she KNOWS her stuff. Great Doctor!!!  Respond

10/03/10 3 3 1 2 Saw Dr. Mah in 2007 for my second child. Very abrupt and didn't order standards tests (like triple screen) until I specifically asked. Changed doctors and was much happier. Have been diagnosed with a prolapsed uterus but my dr's surgery wait list is over a year. Was told Dr. Mah's wait is shorter, so I went to see her. She said it isn't that bad (it protrudes and I have a lot of pain and incontinence) and that all I need is to lose weight and do kegels. I told her I've been doing kegels for 18 months and it hasn't been helping. She said I don't need surgery, that I am overweight and that I need to lose weight and follow up with my other doctor. Yes I do need to lose some weight, but I'm not obese. It seems that being a bit overweight means that I don't deserve treatment or a good quality of life. She was awfully rude and didn't want to help me at all.  Respond

08/09/09 1 2 1 1 You know the saying "if you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all" - my comments would have to be blank if I followed that rule. Dr. Mah is rude, abrupt, unhelpful, unprofessional and so on. I went to see her and got told to take off my clothes for a pap and she did not discuss anything she was going to do. She did a Biopsy on me without warning or discussion. I have a high pain tolerance but this just about put me through the roof. Talk about caught unaware - bled for 4 day's from it. A little warning would be nice. She also told me part of my problems were also to do with my weight although I've been fat & skinny with the same problems but she didn't want to hear that. I'm still in a holding pattern about my problems and I'm thinking I might as well get a new specialist and count the last year and a half as wasted time spent. Don't recommend her, don't like her and her staff are very unfriendly and rude.  Respond

03/06/09 4 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Mah for my first pregnancy. From 8 weeks on I had bleeding on and off until delivery at 39 weeks. If you are looking for the kind of experience you see on TV, Dr. Mah is not the right Dr for you, but if you want someone reliable and knowledgeable, she is. She is extremely busy and, although I never had to wait long, people must understand the nature of her practise. My advice is: if you have a number of questions tell her as soon as she walks in the room "I have 4 questions today". I always did that, and she always remembered after I had asked the first 3 she would say, "and your fourth is?" I had several issues during my pregnancy, early contractions at 20 weeks plus an incompetent cervix and was thrilled with the care I received from Dr. Mah. She is not there to be your friend, it is her job to keep you and baby safe and healthy, and she does a damn good job at that. She is one of the few OB's that is constantly on call, she is dedicated to her work and her patients!  Respond

01/06/09 1 1 1 1 THIS WOMEN SHOULD NOT BE A DR!! I was sent to her bc I was 17 weeks preg. with #2 and had an incompetent cervix.. my dr sent me to dr mah to do my cerclage, only i went to her office and her staff was rude and she was 2 hours late... (which I can handle bc of the nature of her prof.) She physically ASSUALTED me... she came in didn't say anything, threw my knees to the side and rammed her fingers in me so hard i almost puked and cried (keep in my mind my membranes were herniating through my cervix and she was lucky she didn't rupture them) she then proceeded to tell me I wasn't "well read" and there was no way there was anything wrong with my cervix. I walked out on her. If I had to give birth in a corn field with my bare hands i would! That night I went to RAH and had my cerclage done the following day. Absolutely disgusting DO NOT EVER SEE HER!

18/05/09 2 1 2 1 My daughter seen her recently & she is only 16yrs old. Each time she went to the clinic she waited 2 hrs for a 5 min visit with Dr. Mah. And sometimes it was only with one of the staff. She was late with the delivery even tho we waited a few hours for her...a nurse delivered the baby with my help & my mother. My daughter tore badly & then thats when Dr. Mah showed up without any gown or gloves carrying her purse. She got perturbed at the nurse for rushing my daughter because she tore badly basically blaming her instead of herself who should've been there in the first place. She sewed up my girl fast & left the room not saying much. I didn't notice till later how she just came in & out becuz we were so happy for the baby. My poor daughter is worried bout her stitches but I had to tell her whe will be fine. She asked Dr. Mah how many stitches she got and all she said was "LOTS!" I don't want to see this doctor anymore for my daughter. I will seek a more professional one right away.G'luck  Respond

08/05/09 2 2 2 2 This surgeon won't kill you. You just might end up with an unnecessarily complicated surgery recovery e.g. a very long episiotomy that wasn't required. I worked with Dr Mah. Some patients have great interactions with her on good days (especially ones from 20 years ago), but majority of recent interactions have not been good. (She's divorcing). Surgeon with too large a patient load and needs better coping skill. Lack of conducting hospital rounds is typical of all physicians. It's sometimes a sign that the rest of the unit team are well trusted and have proven capable of meeting all patients' needs without them. One thing: hospital nurses do not belong to physicians; they're a totally separate health profession from doctors. Doctors do not manage, employ, train, or supervise nurses--though that's how it seems on TV with doctors abundant and nurses absent. Reality is very much the reverse.  Respond

08/04/09 2 1 1 1 have seen Dr. Mah-twice-I was refered by my GP due to an ovarian cyst-both times she was extremely late-I waited almost 2 hours each time, at least her staff are friendly. When I met her the first time it was a quick meeting take the basic info-sent me for test-thought okay a little cold and abrupt but maybe when we have something to dicuss...recent follow-up visit not any better-she had mentioned that a biopsy might be something to consider but then when I tried to follow-up in regards to what that would be she said "but it's just not worth it"-and then wouldn't clarify, and left. "not worth it", not something any doctor should ever utter unless they plan on clarifying-not worth what???, Not worth her time, not worth her consideration-in my opinion she is not worth it. According to some she is an "old school" doctor-not a hand holder, what I think is that she doesn't know how to deal with patients who want to and need to be informed, my advice-seek other medical advice!  Respond

30/03/09 5 4 5 5 I saw Dr. Mah during my first pregnancy. At the time I was also waiting for a hip replacement so carrying a baby was a risky thing. She was very knowledgeable and gave good wisdom. I had a pre-scheduled c-section. She prepared me well for what to expect and did a great job. Through the pregnancy she watched for possible complications and did tests, extra ultrasounds to rule out any problems. She is a very busy Dr. so you don't get a lot of time but she would always answer any questions I had and seemed genuinely concerned about mine and my baby's health. I would recommend her to anyone. For those that complained about her being late... they need to realize she delivers baby's and baby's come at any time!!! She can be late for appointments but it is because she is delivering a baby or taking care of a hospital emergency. The staff is always great to rebook needed appointments. If I was pregnant again I would definitely see her again and recommend her to you as well!!  Respond

14/03/09 1 1 1 1 I wouldn't recommend her to anyone. When I was 24 pregnant with my first, when Ryan's head came out my pelvis was separated. Dr.Mah had she been on the ball would have noticed and precautions should have been made, like a c-section. She wasn't in the room until his head was coming out. I found her neglectful and uncaring. This makes her dangerous. I was not even told what had happen to me as she was out the door as quick as she came in. . Dr. Mah didn't come back to explain, NOTHING, just left me. I called her and asked why did this happen? Her reply to me was it's common, it happens sometimes. I couldn't believe it! I was able to walk after a month and a half with a walker. I am now 34 and over the years because of that injury have had arthritis set in. People may say she's busy and works hard, that is no excuse whatsoever. She shouldn't take on so many people.I found the pelvis separation more painful than the labour. She should not be a doctor!  Respond

14/01/09 2 3 3 3 I have been her patient for more that 10 years. One of my children is delivered by her. Dr. Mah is a very experienced doctor; however her attitude to her job is similar to an assembly line worker. In her point of view women is just a piece of equipment that requires no more than five minutes of doctor’s time, whatever the problem is. Her approach is always a cookie cutter and assumes that everybody is absolutely the same. There is not much knowledge of new medical advancements or new pharmaceutical products available on the market. With such an approach, when attention paid to a patient is very limited and the complaints are waived without even an attempt to try and see the underlying reason, one always wanders how much use the visits to this doctor really are.  Respond

02/09/08 3 3 5 5 Dr. Mah is a OB Gyn first and foremost. Why do these women think that it is Dr. Mah's job to coddle you? Dr. Mah delivered my 21, 18 and 13 year old and now my daughter also sees Dr. Mah. Yes, she is busy but she does make time if you tell her. She doesn't read minds and she is not your mother or best friend. She has a job to do and she does it very well! I am not surprised to see all these negative reviews because people that complain do so to others; and people that have positive comments will say it directly to the person. I do find some of the front desk staff to be a bit abrupt but this may be due to the workload. Dr. Mah has always been busy and I am grateful because she was there for me through 3 pregnancies and a hysterectomy. I would rather wait for someone that is qualified and experienced than for someone that is more concerned with pacifying me and not treating me.  Respond

29/07/08 1 1 1 1 Wow, I was just at Dr.Mah's office today getting an IUD (my first), she was very rude, made me feel very inferior, and had a smug smile on her face through the whole thing. I dont know if this woman even knows how to genuinely smile? Didnt seem to have time to explain some of my questions. She told me when to sit up (after the procedure) and neglected to tell me I was bleeding profusely all over the place! SHe didnt even attempt to clean me up after. Then as I am sitting there bleeding all over the place, she hands me the box with the information and accidently drops the box on the ground, looks at it then just leaves the room. OMG! I find it hard to beleive this Doctor has ANY positive feedback. I will be telling my GP to not recommend her to any one, unless there are robots needing paps or babies delievered. Front office staff is very unfriendly! I went to pay after the procedure, and was told they only accept cash/cheque! they made me leave my cc and SIN and go to the bank right away.

25/07/08 3 3 3 2 I had dr mah when i was 16 and preg with my first child. she did not tell me what was good for me or bad for me. i ended up gaining a 100lbs!!! it was aweful! so never explained to me what was going on in my pregnancy or anything. she was always rushed and also late. i did like her in the delivery, minus the part i was told not to scream. i was induced at 39weeks 6days, and had my beautiful 8lbs 8oz girl with an episotomy. the only doc i know who will still do one! she was quick and very good stitching. that is all i can basically say about her. i never did see her again, but if i could have had her for delivery for my other two children i would have.  Respond

20/06/08 1 1 1 1 This has to be the worst doctor when it comes to compassion and proper care that we all deserve as human beings. She may know her stuff,but really is that enough when you are about to endure such an experience as child birth? When I was pregnant with my first child,she delivered me at 35 weeks by cesarian section, because my son was in breech position. Being only 18 at the time,I trusted that it was the right thing, however in retrospect I have learned that first time pregnancies especially in younger Moms,babies can take a bit longer to turn even up to 38 or 39 weeks. With my second baby,I really wanted to have a vaginal birth, but she told me that she was going to section me at 36 weeks again,just based on my first baby. I refused,as my first child was apnic due to being premature. She then told me that if I was not going to appreciate her advise to find another OB. I did just that and delivered my daughter vaginally at 40wks 1day with no problems. The absolute worst doctor EVER!!!  Respond

03/06/08 1 1 1 1 Where do I even start on this one. I am a nurse and I have come in contact with a lot of bad, unprofessional Doctors, but she tips the scales. I was reffered to her by my GP for my PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). She literally walked into the room ripped up my shirt and bra and completed the most unprofessional breast exam, as I lay there SHOCKED she lifts up the lovely paper blanket and shoves her fingers inside for my internal exam without explaining first. She then proceeded to complete the most painful pap I have ever had, (to which I bled for 2 days after) the whole time demanding me to relax. After completing the exam she removed the speculum and threw it across the room into the sink. I then asked her about my condition and if she could treat it, to which she replied "Just get pregnant it will clear itself up." then she left the room. This woman should not be practicing.  Respond

09/05/08 4 2 4 5 I must say that I agree with the comments abouther being direct and to the point. She is smart and truthful. I was under her care for my first baby in 2005 and in the hospital for amonth waiting for him and then he was delivered early by section. Dr. Mah took amazing care of us and my husband and I were so thankful for our healthy boy. I then had surgery by Dr. Mah in Mar 2007 to remove a large cyst from my ovary. Once again, she took great care of me. I am now expecting my 2nd baby and she is keeping a close eye on me and I am more than happy to have her as my Dr. I LOVE that she still does all her deliveries. How many other OBGYN's still do that???? Maybe everyone should think about that when you are waiting. Yes, she is in a rush but if you have ? and you ask, she will answer. She is always there when needed for her patients. Great job Dr. Mah!!!  Respond

27/04/08 5 2 5 5 I worked with Dr. Mah as her resident (I am a family doc now). All these comments are unfounded. Yes, she is always late. But that's because she is at the hospital delivering babies. SHe is an old school doc, meaning she is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (with occasional time for vacation). She will come in any time to do a delivery (yes that means at 2 am). Try living this life and you will understand. She cares about her patients. I remember one night on call, she went home around 7pm to eat dinner, I had to call her back around 9 pm and she stayed till 4am delivering babies one after another. And the next day, while I went home to sleep she still had surgeries to do, plus more deliveries. You people are so ungrateful. She is really skilled at what she does and be glad that she is on 24/7, because, while you may have to wait hours in her waiting room, when it's your turn, you'll be glad other people are waiting while she is in there delivering your baby.  See Responses

23/04/08 5 5 4 5 I a nutshell, Dr. Mah is a no-nonsense get the job done type of doctor who doesn't have time to ****foot around and lay women down on exam tables lined with rose petals and stirrups covered in satin! She has been doing her job for a number of yeas and over those years has gained a vast wealth of knowledge associated with her profession. If your the type of person who wants a doctor who is more interested in beating around the bush and treating you with kid gloves so as not to make you cry from the shock of reality, Dr .Mah is not the doctor for you. She is however the perfect doctor for women who have a more realistic appreciation for the incredibly demanding field of obstetrics and the vast multitude of pressures, liabilities, and run off your ass kind of job that it is. For those women who want their information served straight up Dr. Mah is like a shot of tequila, while it may sometimes burn on the way down it leaves you feeling damn good afterward!!  Respond

23/04/08 1 1 1 1 Very poor treatment from Dr. Mah when diagnosed with breast cancer. She may be fine for young mums -- but if you're past child bearing years forget it. Her staff does everything possible to keep you from contacting her. A week after by biopsy I phoned to see if they had any results and was toldthat if I hadn't heard anything from them I was fine. I phone the next day only to find that my results hadn't even come in. I asked if Dr. Mah could phone for them becuase I was leaving for a vacation and wanted to know before I left -- I was then told that Dr. Mah was too busy to look them up. My family physician had the results for me in the next 10 minutes. So as far as Dr. Mah's office goes -- Be afraid -- be very afraid.  Respond

02/04/08 5 3 5 5 I have been with this doctor for over 25 years and how dare people criticize her. She was the only women OB/Gyno then, she did a FABULOUS JOB on delivering my oldest (25) and youngest (15). How dare people complain, lets see them do the hard long days and nights, I even had her home number through both pregnancy just in case, that is how caring she was with me. So maybe some of you babies grow up and give the older generation a break, we have had to bend over backwards for all of you brats. She's a great doctor, if you don't appreciate what she has done in the past 20 years, go find yourself a monster doctor, that really doesn't care. It's how people treat their doctor they will get treated the same way back. Remember that saying....  See Responses

16/03/08 3 3 1 2 Dr. Mah was my OB with my first child, and delivered her as well. Due to personal issues, she basically told me not to have more children and that I had to get an IUD at my 6wk check. I was young and didn't know any better than to do research. She was always abrupt, never even bothering to give me a due date. Never discussed anything about what to expect from time to time. In fact appointments were more like non-appointments because she was in and out so quickly. She also can't be rated high on knowledge - the intern barely caught my daughter because she was half way down the hall after having told me I was at least 30mins away from beginning to push. She was the OB on call when I had an emergency d&c a few years back, and after that I had troubles carrying to term. She is also very unsupportive of doulas. Basically she wants to be in full control and wants women to be submissive. Avoid this dr. Many GP's give better care than her.  Respond

19/01/08 1 1 1 1 What an unprofessional Doctor. She was the Doctor on-call as I had my baby on the weekend, so I didn't have a choice. She rushed in and out of the room, hung her coat and purse on the door and she left after doing stitches as quickly as possible. She made a few inappropriate and mean remarks, and didn't seem to care about me as a human being. I badly hemorraged a while later and can't help but wonder if she didn't take the time to properly examine my placenta. My husband said she was not gentle with my baby either. I understand that a baby is difficult to deliver but she seemed overly rough. If she is the Doctor on call for when you go into labour, cross your legs and keep that baby in until your regular ob/gyn can deliver!  Respond

While I was talking, she finally said, "you know, you can sit up now". I was so embarrased! I didn't know we were finished! I start to get anxiety when I know my appointment is approaching because I know she's going to call me fat and remind me that I should start thinking about having a family because conceiving is more difficult as you get older (I'm 24!). She has made me so upset in the past that I have skipped paps because I am so terrified of her... and we all know that is NOT GOOD. I've finally learned my lesson and I'm never going back.

She was always rushed, I got an iud put in place after my second child and got it removed 5 months later because it was constantly causing pain and she told me i "needed" to get another birthcontrol because if i didn't she was "sure" she was gonna see me within a few months (it's been 6 months) pregnant.

23/03/07 2 1 3 I was seeing her in the 1st trimester of my pregnancy. I miscarrried at 11 weeks. Dr. Mah did my D&C at the hospital. I mentioned to her the i will keep my appointment for the following week which was supposed to be a monthly prenatal appointment. I went to my appointment, she came in the room, asked how I was, then said "hop on the bed, lets se if we can hear your babies heartbeat" After she realized what happened she didn't even apologize.  Respond

22/03/07 1 1 3 She is never on time (once in awhile you can understand, but this is always at least 40 minutes after your appointment). She seemed to know what she was talking about, but after putting me through a surgery she was still stumped and ended up sending me to someone else - which was good because I liked the other doctor much better.  Respond

15/03/07 2 4 5 I have seen Dr. Mah for many years. Yes, she is very busy, and yes you usually have to wait. I have found that if she is in a rush she will quickly examine you and send you off, but that if you genuinely have questions or concerns she will make sure to stop and explain. If you don't know what's going on, ASK! She can seem abrupt sometimes but I think it is only because she is so busy. If she has a fault, maybe it's that she takes on too many patients.  Respond

13/03/07 1 1 1 In 1994 Dr. Mah dropped the ball, for me anyways. She induced my labor due to pre eclampsia and then left the hospital for almost three complete days. She left no instructions as to my care and left no orders for medication. The only doctor "higher" than her who could override her was away on vacation. The nurses and other doctors tried desperately to reach her. She was no where to be found, not at home, or at her office, or anywhere reachable for three days. I had complications in birth and labored hard with absolutely no medication for 56 hours. Much to the surprise of the multitude of staff at my bedside, at exactly the 56 hour point, Dr. Mah walked in to see me trying desperately to push the baby out. She looked scared and she grabbed the forceps and ripped my son from my body. He was in shock and later, while offering no explanation as to her behavior she said, "I nearly lost you both". I never went back to her. When quantity overrides quality, burnout will surely occur.  Respond

12/03/07 3 5 5 I read through some of the comments on this site--OH MY--did you not feel pampered enough??, I have been with Dr. Ma for about ten years-- I think that she is a terrific Dr. who knows her business very well-- she may be late some times( whose baby was she delivering??or who needed her in the Hospital?? next time it may well be YOU)She is very Professonal,and dosn't spend more time then she has to, because there are to many others WAITING to see HER--I also found that she can be very GENTAL AND CARING, when I was Worried she even phoned me at HOME. I am very HAPPY to have HER  Respond

05/03/07 2 5 5 I would like to start out saying that Dr. Mah is ver efficent and cares about everyone coming in and out of her office. She is the type of Dr that will not candy coat and basically tell you how it is straight up... and from all of her years experiance I would definately not go anywhere else. I have been with Dr. Mah for a very long time and know that when she is late it is for a very good reason as in delivering or tending to a patient in the hospital or in her office. The staff she has in her office are great and willing to help out when they can, but again when sitting in the waiting room it is unbelievable the amount of unpleasantries they have to deal with from patients who are unhappy plus having to do the work that ivolves how many patients a day. Well Dr. Mah keep doing a great job and I will see you next year.  Respond
