Dr. Paul Gurland's Ratings
The worst doctor I have ever dealt with. Insensitive, rude and mean. I o not know why he is dealing with patients given his lack of compassion and bad bedside manner. Luckily I had another ob perform my delivery but I dreaded every visit with this doctor.
He delivered my first baby & it couldn't have gone any better, he was knowledgeable & to the point! I was happy to have such a wonderful experience! This Sunday I unfortunately suffered a miscarriage with my 2nd at 10 weeks! I spent 6 hrs at the ER & sent home with advice to monitor the blood flow...yesterday the worst happened! I hemmoraged uncontrollably & ended up in tge ER again in very bad shape...my blood levels had dropped dangerously low! I was incredibly lucky that Dr Gurland was the OBGYN on call! He saw me right away! Thoroughly explained my situation & proceeded with the procedure needed. He let me know what was going to happen every step of the way...answered all my questions & admitted me until he was sure I was stable enough to go home & booked me a follow up with him in 6 weeks! I don't care about his bed side manner I care that he knows his stuff & doesn't sugar coat! He's a great dr & I feel blessed to have been his patients through both of these experiences!
I was nervous from reading some of these reviews, but once I met him, I thought he was very knowledgeable, smart, kind and respectful. Patients should do their due diligence first by doing some reading, researching, attending prenatal classes etc.
I have seen this guy twice now this is my first baby and he is so cold. I asked a question and he was like it could be a number of things what do u think? I'm not the doctor he is... I really hope I get a nice experienced dr who's well mannered.
The reviews seem to be better from patients that aren't having babies
Very rude doctor. Went into the hospital for a biopsy. He didnt introduce himself he talked into my file, I didn't hear a woed he said. Not personal, not helpful, wil lnot answer questions. Acts like your an inconvience. I never want to see him again he is rude, lectured me, made me even more afriad and I left crying. WORST dr I have EVER met in my life! Why work as an ob if you have no compassion for other humans?
Went in with an open mind, excited to meet my obgyn for the first time. He walked into the room after I waited an hour and 45 minutes to see him, didn't introduce himself and just told me he was goign to measure my baby. Measured my stomach and told me she was a little large but that is common with mixed babies. He then asked me if I had any questions, my husband and I asked if he needed to go over our birth plan and he just said, "I don't know, just bring it to the hospital." He told me to go back to my family doctor to get the rest of my blood tests that hadn't arrived yet (did them the week before, family doctor was supposed to fax them over) and to bring them to my next appointment and then he left. Rude, no bedside manner and he made it seem like I was a bother. I don't need the man to hold my hand and tell me everything is going to be okay but at least have some common courtesy. Considering this is my first child, this was a horrible experince that only lasted 3 minutes but left a horrible memory.
Our daughter was born when I turned 40, he told us we were too old to have kids in the delivery room! I missed the epidural as they checked me late, there was meconium so our daughter was stressed and they did an episiotomy. Also, he pulled the placenta out - it was worse than the labour! Cord broke inside and he fished it out with whole arm. I was screaming, my husband was terrified to leave me but baby had to go to NICU. Although he got our daughter out quickly, he could have given me pain killers for placenta or took me into OR especially because I missed epidural. When he walked into the delivery room - our stomache sank as neither one of us wanted him to deliver as we'd met him a few times during our prenatal and he was not pleasant.
I was assigned to Dr. Mykan as my OB for my first pregnancy. As per usual, with Credit Valley you visit the OB on call that day. My first encounter with Dr. Gurland was ok. He didn't seem to have much personality and was very robotic. He did ask me if I had questions, however, he seemed disinterested in answering them when I said I did... almost like an inconvenience and he regretted asking me the question. The second time I saw Dr. Gurland he was even worse. Very disinterested, not responsive to my questions, and at that time I had had an ultra sound and wanted the results. He almost didn't check with the nurses station, but after I insisted the results should be there he checked. He barely went over the results with me and I had to continue to probe to have my questions answered. Needless to say, with these two experiences I dreaded potentially having him as my delivery doctor. Well lucky me, guess who was on call the day my child delivered, Dr. Gurland. This was the worst by far ever and someone needs to discuss with him that patients have rights and he needs to communicate during this process. In the room when I was pushing was a resident doctor and all the nurses on call that morning. They checked me and agreed I had enough room/stretch to deliver by baby with no tears or episiotmy. Dr. Gurland walked in and asked the resident doctor doing my delivery to make a cut!!! Soon after he said "See how quick that was?". So basically he wanted this done quick so he could move on, but didn't think about the after affects for the patient. He never even asked or said he was doing it. I delivered by baby quickly and instead of waiting for me to deliver the placenta he reached inside me, grabbed it and pulled it out!!!! Who does that?!?! Again, he never asked or said he was doing this. I requested cord clamp delay and he did not do this either. He quickly unrobed, said congrats and walked out. Thank you very much for the lack of human sensitivity. I will not be going with the CVH OB office again if I have more children, I'll be finding a midwife.
Over the past two years I had been experiencing back pain and very heavy bleeding for at least three weeks out of every month. I was rarely going anywhere other than work as my symptoms were inhibiting me from enjoying my life. I had been to the Doctors numerous times and requested ultrasounds/tests after each test I was told that there was nothing wrong and it all was just early signs of menopause. I finally got fed up and requested a referral to see a gynecologist. My referral d was with Dr. Gurland, I was a little worried after reading reviews but went in with an open mind. My appointment consisted of Dr. Gurland introducing himself, we went over what was wrong with me and he examined me. After my exam I went back to his office, he drew me a picture of what he had found. He explained to me very thoroughly my options; he let me with his guidance decide what my best option for surgery was. Three months later I was ready for surgery, he met with me before hand reassured me that I was in good hands. I woke up after my operation feeling very strangely well rested, and within two hours I was home. I felt well enough to go back to work after a couple of days. I’m so excited I have my life back again! Thank you Dr. Gurland P.S - Love the music in the operating room :-)
