I think this must be the worst OB-GYN ever to exist he shouldn't be allowed near a pregnant woman ever !!! My actual OB was Dr.Elliot who I love but if she's away Dr.Namis takes her patients the one time I saw him for a check up I was 7 months pregnant I left that apt. Very upset feeling violated I reported him immediately , he was rough and caused me to bleed which I hadnt experienced at any other apt. With Dr.Elliot I was badly bruised from his exam. I will never allow that man to touch me ever again I am now pregnant with my 2nd child again seeing Dr. Elliot :) but she is away and I am supposed to see Dr. Namis I have refused to see him and opted to wait for her return as my pregnancy has gone very smoothly I'm happy to wait ..... If you have Dr. Namis run as fast as you can in the opposite direction he's an A#*H%#*!! Pardon my French
Dr Namis is the best gynecologist I have ever been to but unfortunately it takes forever in the waiting room. But, I understand when he is needed over at the hospital to deliver a baby. Causing the long wait time.
Every time I take my mother- in- law to see him there is a wait of at least 2 hours. If I made someone wait that long for an appointment I would be out of business. This is totally unacceptable in my opinion.
As caring and as knowledge as he is, nothing excuses the horrible wait time. I would rather have my appointment booked a week away then be told to come in the next day and wait for 4 hours. The ER moves faster than that. Completely inexcusable and the secretary is unapologetic, bordering on rude.
I have been going to Dr. Namis for nearly a year now, and he seems to be a very caring man who tries his best to make you as comfortable as possible. I'll confirm outright that he does schedule 3-4 people per appointment slot, which makes the wait anywhere from 1.5-4 hours. That being said, he really doesn't take the time to read your file and familiarize himself with your case enough to be an effective doctor. I first came to him with midcycle bleeding, and was sent for an ultrasound that identified an endometrial polyp. He preformed a surgery to removed the poly, but post-op told me that they found nothing and it probably was dealt with naturally, and that everything should be okay. I came back to him two months later with the same recurring issues; while waiting in his office, I looked in my file and saw in the official post-op report that they did actually remove the polyp and send it for pathology (came back normal). His best idea for fixing my issues was to just switch me to different pills, but I'm now concerned that he either doesn't have the time/care enough to read my file to make an informed diagnosis/solution. I wouldn't recommend Dr. Namis if you are looking for effective medical care.
The only good thing about Dr.Namis is that he diagnosed my Endo after Dr.Rafla kept saying it was all in my head and I am thankful about the fact he caught my Endo and Dr.Rafla (wife is Dr.Reid Rafla anther bad Dr.) died sorry but my thought was he can't miss diagnose anyone else.
Other than that I would not go back ... when he did a Pap smear he did not use any lube and scraped my uterus with a wooden thing and when he did the internal same thing no lube and very rough I don't think he even used gloves YUCK.
When I was pregnant the first time the appointments we long 3-4 hours wait and I booked mine at 9am but what really got me was that I went into labour early and I had to go to his Dr's office he did an internal exam so rough that I was crawling off the bed and all he kept saying was hold still don't move.I was in tears I phoned my husband and mom it was terrible.
I have never gone back in fact when I got in the car accident while pregnant with our second child his office phoned me and I wasen't even his patient he wanted to see me and check me out I told them where to go that he wasen't touching me and I was not his patient which I don't understand to this day why he wanted to see me ??? and that was in 2005.
Either way he should not be in medicine.
I was 5 months pregnant with my second child. I was refered to him as my own Dr was off on sick Leave. I am a diabetic my appointment was for 9am I was seen at 1pm. Th appointment was on the 6th floor of Guelph General. I was forced to sit on the floor as there were not enough chair's in the waiting area. The Dr schedules patients while he is on call at the hospital, this is like double dipping he is getting paid for his time at the hospital but is also getting paid on the side while seeing patients. I would prefer to go to his office with a scheduled appointment time so I dont have to wait 4 hours while he is doing his on call duties. He is not doing me any favours making me wait to be seen. Also at the hospital there is no reception just the phone on the wall. I picked up the phone and advised that I can't sit on the floor anymore and that I am leaving, then he saw me.
My experience with Dr. Namis - unprofessional, dishonourable, and disrespectful - echoes the College of Physicians and Surgeons (2011) http://cpso.on.ca/public-register/doctor-details.aspx?view=4&id=%2052321. I'm not the only one. Of others I spoke to, there was only one person with a favourable impression after very brief contact with him;people seemed to have very unusual experiences with him. Fortunately, I listened to my intuition. The diagnosis was wrong. He did not give me the information I needed to make an informed decision and attempted to rush me into surgery. Unprofessional comments only added to my unfavourable impression of him as a doctor. Personally, I'm only concerned about a doctor's bedside manner if it interferes in his ability to diagnose and treat - abrupt, inappropriate behaviour, or ignoring additional information that might inform his or her conclusions. http://www.guelphmercury.com/news-story/2783931-guelph-doctor-reprimanded-for-altering-a-patient-s-records/
Be prepared to sit for hours only to be rushed through. The secretary is always being talked to negatively by the doctor. The usual wait time is 2-3 hours. I took my 3 year old and sat for 3 1/2 hours. There was a women with a five day old and she came in within a few minutes of when I did and was still waiting to see him when I left. He spent 6 minutes with me. His Doppler is old and I had to hold it inthe air for him to hear the heart rate.
