Rate Dr. M Persaud
Dr. M Persaud's Ratings
I don't understand why so many people are rating him so poorly. He was great. I was referred by my ear nose throat doc. He started by asking me a series of question, 2 question he asked me a second time because my answer was not clear enough. I totally understand but he needs precise answers. He then tested me for allergens and told me what I was allergic to.. gave me info on how to avoid these things. He also gave me info on the best and cheapest allergy pills. Very nice man.. I think he is so busy all the time he doesn't have much time for people coming in there being hypochondriacs and not listening to his advise. Don't be turned off by previous comments
Dr. Persaud was condescendingl. We were there to test a fruit allergy because of a past reaction, and he decided to lecture me because we all choose not to eat gluten and dairy in our home. He was judgmental and poorly informed on current research about these highly inflammatory foods, he had no interest in my observations of my child's reactions, only wanted to be right about his opinion and out-of-date training. He also forgot to test one of the main allergens we were there to test and we had to do it afterward.
I had taken my daughter to see him for a milk allergy test and soy test. She had been on regular milk and was fine for awhile, then all of a sudden she became very ill. We noticed it was dairy and/gluten. He did the milk allergy test, it swelled and went red. However, because it didnt fill the entire circle he drew on her forearm that this is not an allergy. There was also no way she could be lactose because she was fine before. The only way she could be lactose is if it was secondary lactose intolerant. However, here we are months later and still battling, if she does come in contact with dairy, even lactose free she gets ill. Diarrhea, bloating, gas, cramps and as of recently coughing, and a severe rash. My daughter is just shy of two years old and we have been going on with this almost 6 months now.
I took my daughter and son to see dr persaud when my daughter swelled up all over her body with huge splotches purple coloring after eating blueberries. My son had reacted to a yoghurt flavour we tried with huge blotches on his face. because the reactions where not noticeable on my daughter within 2 hours but lasted 2 days he said they were hives! HER WHOLE BODY SWELLED! he also used me as a control test for the scratches after i told him i have been taking antihistamine for over 2 weeks for my seasonal allergies! of course i wont react! He told me that my kids are not allergic to anything I should not be refusing them heathly food and that my daughter will not react again. this was after he had to be forced to do a food test on my son in the lobby and i practically yelled at him to find out what i should do if she does react again. (guess what she still swells up when eating purple fruitloops!) i should also mention we were not allowed to speak unless it was yes or no we changed rooms 3 times and were told to bring food for the test but it was not even used. one instance when i tried to show a picture of the reaction and elaborate on what the situation was he threatened to have us leave. You "Sir" should get out of allergies and focus on asthma as per all previous comments you seem to prefer that field anyway!
He was great! He was very good with 6 year old, talked to her lots asking her about school and Santa, making her feel comfortable. After all the needle pokes She was sitting in my lap and i was talking to the doctor and before i knew anything was wrong he reached over and picked her up because he saw she was going to faint right away, And she did right after he laid her down on the bed. All is well but I'm so grateful for his quick reaction and attentiveness. He gave us lots of good info about managing symptoms of allergies and prevention.
I was impressed at how thorough he was at investigating my allergy symptoms. He is a very busy man so he goes through your appointment as quick as possible, but still does an amazing job. Gave me some good suggestions at managing my symptoms.
Dr. Persaud was matter of fact, gave me fantastic advice and proved to me that I don't have food allergies (which a naturopath told me i had). He told me exactly what I was allergic to, gave me advice about my asthma and how to live with it, and verified that my asthma is not just induced by exercise. He had a terrific attitude and I found him to be polite and knowledgable. I highly recommend him.
It's hard to put into words the relief I felt after seeing this doctor. He confirmed what I thought for 20+ years that I do have "significant" allergies. After living so long with them I was prepared to just sequester myself from allergens even more, but he gave me a lot of hope that one day I can just enjoy life as though I don't have them. When I walked into his office covered with pictures of the glorious outdoors I thought it was just a cruel joke, but after my appointment I realized that it was to offer me hope! He is HIGHLY professional with the odd joke, and will tell you if you do not have allergies (like he told my husband); maybe that's what makes some people mad. He listened to my concerns that the allergies gave me trouble breathing, believed me, and had a nurse come give me excellent advice on how to live with the allergy-induced asthma. This doctor was knowledgeable, offered help, follow-up appointments, and even hope! What more could I ask for?!! Awesome, awesome doctor.
