31/10/13 1 2 1 5 I think he was a good doctor that took his time. Today he seemed rushed and bored It's all about botox and fillers now  Respond

01/10/13 1 2 1 1 Unfortunately, the staff at the downtown office are extremely unprofessional and very poor representatives of this Doctor. I have spent several thousands of dollars for botox and IPL and I am treated like vermin at the front desk, as well, their skin care consultant Leanne has the personality of a saloon slinging barmaid. For all of the money that I have invested at this clinic, I would have hoped that these employees would take interest in treating me with courtesy and respect and also the employees that are supposed to deliver a skill and ability with regard to the actual skin care, I find they really lack quality education. This clinic really ignores the fact that many of their patients are highly educated people and we probably know more about Microbiology, Chemistry and Pharmaceuticals than the average person and certainly more than they do (The Staff...except Dr. Sapijaszko), the point of mentioning this, the staff talks down to people like we are complete dummies!  See Responses

31/05/13 5 5 5 5 All of the staff at the southside clinic were great. They were polite, helpful, and patient. Dr S was, to my surprise, attentive and did not push any procedures on me. He asked what i would like and gave me my options. I did not feel pressured or rushed in the slightest. He made me as comfortable as possible during my procedure. He was gentle and explained everything as he went along, calming all my nerves. I will definitely continue to go back to this clinic and see Dr Sapijaszko.I highly recommmend him.  Respond

15/04/13 1 2 2 3 Dr seems to be more focused on doing cosmetic procedures than medical procedures. Dr was brusk, cold, disinterested and unfriendly. Spent no more than 3 minutes with me and never even said good bye after the procedure or gave any follow up care suggestions. He probably needed to go give someone a lucrative botox injection or liposuction procedure vs doing things for a small payment from the provincial health care system. Was told to go to my family physician for follow up care. After my biopsy came back I went to another dermatologist for follow up as I did not feel that this Dr was engaged in my condition.  Respond

22/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. S was very efficient, knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. He was very personable. He is efficient and when he asked me when I would like to have my moles removed I said there is no time like the present he had his assistant (who was very professional) prep me and he came in and removed it. The moles look better than I thought they would. Thank you  Respond

06/06/11 5 5 5 5 If you want cosmetic procedures, Dr. Sapijaszko and his staff are really skilled and knowledgable. They work hard with you to decide what should be done to get the effects you want, always with regards to safety and acheiving the best results without wasting your money. Dr. Sapijaszko is very "hands on", and has probably taken about 10 years off skin aging for me.  Respond

25/04/11 3 3 1 3 I saw Dr. Sapijaszko in 2003 for removal of moles. HIs work was undeniably good. However, his bedside manner was deplorable! He was incompassionate and impatient, and made me feel inadequate about my skin issues. I have advised my family doctor that I will not accept future referrals to Dr. S.  Respond

31/03/11 5 5 5 5 This kind man has been my doctor for 6 years, for cosmetic reasons. Heaven forbid that I will someday need his attentions for skin cancer, but if I do, I am glad to know him. Yes, at times he is rushed. I once mentioned it to a staff person & she told me that he was upset because he had spent the morning removing half of a person's nose because of cancer. Some of the women who wrote those scathing reviews should consider this when they remember their appointments; we don't need attention like a queen when we go to the doctor for little things. If we are not satisfied before we leave, there are 6 consultants in the office and surely, one of them will have time to take your complaint and help you before you go home feeling upset. If you think Dr. Sapijasko is arrogant, oh my goodness, you have no intuition about humanity, and you have jumped to a ridiculous conclusion after an unfortunate office visit. He won't allow what he thinks is an unnecessary procedure, either. What a wonderful doctor !  Respond

26/10/10 4 4 4 4 I saw Dr. Sapijaszko yesturday and he seem like he knew right away what I had. He examined me closely without being scared of me (I look like a monster with severe ezcema) the only thing I can say is when I asked him what it was he said it too quick for me to understand. But overall he seems like a great doctor. I have seen about 8 doctors in totally within 5 weeks of severe ezcema and Dr. Sapijaszko was the only doctor that seemed to help me out the most and cared. He is not ignorant just really busy. So he may come off as a rushed doctor but which doctor isn't busy and rushed? Exactly my point. Anyways, overall I have seen him for only 1 day and my ezcema has gone down quite a bit. I need to see him in 1 week from now and I am so confident he can help me get back to normal again. I would HIGHLY recommend him. Lisa  Respond

07/10/10 2 3 1 2 Very arrogant. Dr. Sapiazsko spent probably two minutes with me and recommended an expensive procedure. Then he sent me to his assistant who had no training to answer questions I had. She only pushed me to purchase series of very expensive laser treatments. I left the office very disappointed and will never be back. If you don’t want to spend big $$, they don’t waste time with you.  Respond

25/12/09 5 4 5 5 I had pleasure to see DR. Sapijaszko recently. He was very caring and informative. My diagnosis required university treatment and he and his staff arranged that very well and very fast. Dr. Sapijaszko treats skin cancer very well and his staff is very efficient and organized.  Respond

01/08/09 2 4 3 5 His office is just too busy to do decent work. Months to get an appointment and follow-up appointments. Rush rush rush. Mixed feelings here- ultimately Dr. Sapijaszko did good work removing moles and skintags. But he charged $400. But he nicked me with the laser which really hurt. But the follow up visit left me hanging about getting more done. The communication is really quirky with him and the initial consultation was done by a bimbo who knew little and didn't seem to convey anything to Dr. Sapijaszko. 
Paid (or co-pay): $400

07/02/09 4 5 5 5 If you have skin cancer go to see Dr. SAPIJASZKO. I recommend him very much. I was diagnosed with skin cancer on my face and he removed it and the scar is excellent. Since then I talked to some people who also know others who had skin cancer removed by Dr. SAPIJASZKO. His staff and nurses are also great. There is this nurse. Her name is Jordan or Jorden. She ia absolutely great. If you are looking for someone to do surgery on the face then I would recommend Dr. Sapijazko. I read on the internet that he has done 1000s of skin cancer surgeries. Go to someone who is experienced and tell him that you heard about him from me on this web site. Thank you Jorden and Dr. Sapijazko.  Respond

29/01/09 4 4 5 5 Although on first impression Dr. Sapijaszko is arrogant and flippant, I have been a patient of his for about 6 years for hyperhydrosis. He was the first doctor who gave me any relief (or real treatment) for that matter when I started seeking treatment for excessive sweating. Until then, most doctors either told me to put talc powder on my hands or to use drysol when confronted with social situations. 2 weeks after my first injections of non cosmetic botox, my hands were dry for the first time in years! For anyone considering this treatment, look past his bedside manner and strange "self portraited" artwork (check it out, and you'll start giggling to yourself)just DO IT! I started treatment before non cosmetic botox and hyperhydrosis were highly publisized and thank Dr. S. for the amazing results and his pioneering work! His clinic also helps get the botox used paid for either through personal insurance or through the drug company they get the product from, you pay for him to inject it.  Respond

14/10/08 1 4 1 3 I have been to this dr. with my father, and the last time was not seen, because his nurse came in and stated that we needed to see someone else as my father had a heart condition, but when we went to someone else, and they contacted this dr., he stated he had no problem seeing my father and that I must be mistaken and should smile and be very nice to this dr.  Respond

17/09/08 3 3 1 1 I waited six months to see Dr. Sapijaszko. When I got to his clinic I didn't have to wait at all, so no complaints there. I went to see him about getting a mole removed on my chin. He spent two minutes with me, tops, if even that. He looked at my chin, said I was picker, told me it would scar if he removed it, and left the room. I waited around a few minutes and then asked reception to ask if he was coming back, at which time I was informed he was done with me. I never got a chance to tell him I didn't care if it scarred because a scar is easier to cover up than a mole. He never bothered to explain anything, and sent literally a two-line report to my family doctor of what he basically said to me. He was abrupt and not friendly at all to deal with. I work in a clinic full of doctors, and I would be appalled if any of them treated our patients like this.  Respond

07/04/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Sapijaszko and his clinic was wonderful to me. For many years I had a skin problem that is genetic and makes my skin uneven color. It is on the body where I could hide is for very long time but about ten years ago it started to affect my face. I used many store cosmetics and they did not work at all. Dr. Sapijaszko was recommended to my by my genaral practitioner who herself has seen him with other issue. Right from the first consultation and letter with treatments and prescription I felt much better knowing that something was done and there was HOPE for me. He used creams and several other laser treatments but after even few treatments I noticed that my face was getting better. Now I feel much better about myself and I do not have to use as much makeup as before and even my friends have noticed that I look better and feel more outgoing. I think the treatments were special new chemical peel and laser light. I am happy and very pleased and I just wish to let everone know. Thank you  Respond

25/03/08 4 3 5 5 I found him to be very good. Although he may come off as being rushed, he did go through all my options, the alternatives, the costs, and an overview of each of them. He did all this quickly but when I had asked for more information he went into a lot of detail. I felt comfortable with him even though I was getting a large series of needles and I have a needle phobia, he even had me laughing at one point. The work I had done was medical although is usually done as a cosmedic procedure, so he had some documents for my insurance company done up so that I could have the work covered. Again he does come across as being rushed, but if you ask him to give you more information you will probably find him very helpful.  Respond

02/02/08 5 4 5 5 I am new patient of the clinic and Dr. Sapijaszko and was seen to improve my facial appearance. I was very very impressed with the doctor and his staff. None of them were rushed and reviewed different choices that I had to improve my face. What I thought was good for me was actually not good for me since my skin type would not work with this new laser machine. It turned out I just needed some good skin care. chemical peels and some botox. My face looks a lot better and I already had many complement from my firnds. I like to clinic and I am glad that I did not need laser treatments and only very safe chemical peels and botoxes. I am happy and I am glad that I did what I did.  Respond

11/01/08 1 3 1 1 Very abrupt and rude. Dr. Sapijaszko tried to push an expensive laser procedure on me that I did not want to do. When I expressed my lack of interest to do it, he immediately quickened his pace and basically ingnored my medical problem. I do not recommend this doctor, who only cares about money and not people.  Respond

19/10/07 4 5 5 5 Dr. Sapijazko is caring and considerate. I have been seeing him for a long time and I am very happy. I must say that sometimes I had to wait longer to see him but he was doing surgery on someone else so I did not mind. His staff is very helpful and was able to accomodate my changing appointments because of my traveling schedule. I have seen few doctors in my life and I am happy that Dr. Sapijazko is my doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.  Respond

13/07/07 5 5 5 5 I was referred to the clinic by my doctor after being frustrated with my skin problem for many years. When I saw Dr. Sapijasko, we had to review all the medications and creams that I was using and it turned out that one of the creams that I was using on my face was causing all the problems. He recomended stoping it and my face got better and better. After all these years I was ready to give up but I am glad that I saw him. He was thorough and precise and we found the problem. I have nothing but good things to say about him. Thank you  Respond

13/06/07 1 1 1 I was referred to Dr Sapijaszko for assessment of my lip. I waited over one hour in the waiting room, with nobody acknowledging that he was running late, I then sat in the examination cubicle with the door closed for another 25 minutes. He came in, not at all friendly, looked at my lip, never gave a diagnosis, or informed me what the problem was. told me to return if needed. A litlle difficult to do, when you don't know what you are watching for. I managed to show him a spot on my arm, without saying anything, he says this will be very cold, grabs a metal spray can, and starts spraying the spot with what I assume is liquid nitrogen. said "it will blister" and left the room. Little did I know that the spot got a whole lot worse, before it got better, and it took at least three weeks to heal. I now have a scar. I will never return to this Doctor, and I informed my family Doctor of the poor mannor in which I was treated.  Respond

08/03/07 4 5 4 I have seen Dr. Sapijaszko quite a bit over the past couple years. He treated my skin condition very well and have since been to him for some cosmetic procedures which I am the most happy with. His staff is very polite, friendly and helpful and you can tell that everyone in the office truly cares about every patient that comes through the door. He is very busy at times yes, but that is to be expected with the great work he does. I will never see another Dermatologist again and would not trust anyone other than Dr. Sapijaszko to be doing cosmetic procedures.  Respond
