Dr. Sukhdev Gill's Ratings
Rude and simply terrible. Can tell that he is experienced and knowledgeable because he has been a doctor for a long time but somehow failed to learn how to actually 'CARE' as a doctor in all of that time.
I visited Gill with my 92 year old Grandpa, to advocate for my grandpa, especially because my grandpa's hearing is very poor. We came to ask about allergy testing, Dr. Gill said that he didn't need testing and quickly prescribed a nasal spray, as he felt it was not allergies. Sit, talk, prescribe, and out the door. I still have the boot print on my back side.
First, I understand that doctors are often overworked, and hence in a hurry. However, when someone comes to a doctor they are usually sick (duh) in pain, (duh), emotionally distressed (duh) and therefore some empathy and communicating to the patient in some way that you care is VITAL. If a doctor is having a rough day, at the least pretend or act as if you care.
Let's list some pros and cons.
- lacks compassion or empathy (which is vital in this profession where people are physically and emotionally unwell) plus... empathy goes a long way in having healthy relationships with everyone else in the world
- interrupts and does not take time to really listen and understand the problem
- argumentative/ condescending when I suggested allergy testing and did not let me finish explaining how serious my grandpa's condition was
- no social greeting
- not willing to collaborate or be open to suggestions outside of his practice/ knowledge
- was on time
- has some knowledge for sure
- hmmmmmmm..... still thinking..........
I am trying to understand why a doctor would act so rude and make us feel like we were brushed off. If there is something in his personal life that is affecting his work, then as a patient, I would advise him to take some time off. Even doctors get sick and need help!
Everyone else, I advise you to search for another doctor by talking with friends, colleagues, or families. It is far more worth it to find a fantastic doctor that is 30-60 minutes away rather than settle for a mediocre/unhelpful one that is 10 minutes away from home. This is your health and you deserve the best care!
What do you expect? How else is going to make his $800000-999000 yearly as listed in the MSP Financial Statement other than see a boat load of patients as fast as possible? He's got bills too. So keep it short and sweet, don't ask more than 2 questions. If you need empathy, go elsewhere. He's all about the $$.FYI, he makes more than the three times average general practioner but is 1/3 as good .
People you don't go to the doctor for a social visit. You go because you"re sick. Doctors are surprisingly low paid for a consultation and they have to maintain an office, staff and themselves. They don't have time to chit chat. Having said that when my mother in law was gravely ill he attended several times to the families needs and was very informative and took the time to explain everything to us.
Terrible Dr! Should have been put out, or thrown out! God help anyone going to him! Your health is meaningless to him..dollar signs are all that matters to him! Waited 30 mins, was in and out in less than 5, so went to someone else who took the time to help me..Run, don't walk from him!
Very bad doctor,he is in it for the money your in his office at least 30 sec very pushy and also lied about my blood test the surgeon told me nothing wrong with my blood have a new doctor so glad so I'm going to warn u don't see this doctor !!!!!I like barb she's really nice so I give her the best rating but for gill 0
Terrible Doctor --- if his wife was not head/director of Fraser Health he would be in jail for a level of practice 20 times below a standard of a license -- someone ( other than me again ) needs to complain to the college of physicians and surgeons of BC -- www.cpsbc.ca Thank you
Worst doctor experience of my life. He was very rude. Was rough when attempting to diagnose my daughter and talked very loudly, almost at a yelling level. He said she needed an x-ray and to go to the hospital ER. I asked for a requisition to just go directly to the x-ray department and he asked "what would he do that for?" Said there was nothing he could do for her. Then to top it all off in the middle of the 4 minute visit he answered what sounded like a personal call on his cell phone. REALLY CLASSY!
