23/07/14 5 5 5 5 Dr Bleszynski delivered my son and I had a great experience with her. I had an emergency c-section and she was reassuring and kept me calm. I was told prior to my c-section that Dr. B was known for being really good at c-sections. My incision healed in record timing and I am left with a beautiful scar. Couldn't be happier.

10/07/14 2 1 1 2 I created an account on RateMD to add my review. Punctual: Doc was over an hour late for my 1st appointment and at least 45 mins late for the other 2 times I saw her.Helpful:She doesn't walk you through the process/assumes you inform yourself prior to going to her for a procedure(in my case and IUD insertion).Knowledge: She knew what she was doing but didn't explain much of what she was doing. Staff: I was the last patient of the day and receptionist wanted to go home. She rushed me into the room and was rude.Told me to get on the exam table and said “pants off.” While I was laying half covered on the table she came back into the room said she forgot something and then left again.I waited for 20 mins before doc came in. Despite not knowing that I had to get a prescription filled out, they gave me the chance to keep my appointment so that’s their saving grace.  Respond

02/07/14 2 1 1 1 Horrific doctor. I wish I could write out everything that she did to me but there are only 1000 characters to use, and I have about 10,000. No compassion, late, difficult to understand, has NO idea who you are, botched surgery, lie after lie, will berate you about everything she possibly can. I beg you, if you see this review.. PLEASE please please go somewhere else. You will be so grateful you did. I am all about giving people chances, and she isn't worth it. Not for such a delicate and sensitive area. I have been on painkillers and bedrest for a long time now thanks to her damaging my cervix and vaginal canal. Please believe me. Please go elsewhere.  Respond

19/06/14 1 3 1 3 This is the worst doctor and office staff I have ever dealt with in my entire life. Dr Bleszynski has no bedside manner and hardly looks at you when you're talking to her. She did not put me at ease but instead made me more nervous. The staff and the dr made the entire process much more difficult than it should have been and the girls who work at the desk are rude, talk back and are very unprofessional. The process dragged on for months because of them. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.  Respond

17/01/14 4 3 5 5 I have had both my children with Maria. Once you get past that she's a VERY busy doctor who is working back to back some days/nights, you understand why she's a bit grumpy at times. She's always been very pleasant with me. Her accent and some of the stuff she says may come across rude, but she's not, its her command of the language which is the problem. I have had nothing but a very good relationship with her staff and Nimmi /Nana (sp) always makes my day. They treat me with respect and I leave satisfied with my meeting. If you go at the wrong time.... Wait times can be horrible, but which doctor's / specialists' office is any better. Best thing go before 8am and you will be in and out. Dr. Bleszynski made both of my pregnancies a great experience. Also if it wasn't for her guidance, i don't think I would have had both my boys.. i was told multiple times I would not be able to conceive!

07/11/13 4 3 5 5 I can see why everyone has an issue with this Dr. and her staff. But I have to say, she's never been anything but sweet and thorough with me. I've witnessed her MOA be quite short and slightly attitudish with another patient that didn't seem justified but I guess patience is not something that runs rampant in the office. I just do as I am told, and treat the staff with respect and I find I am returned the same. Dr. B. is definitely a bit old school, and has an accent, but I don't find her difficult to understand. I find her thorough, helpful and kind. She appreciates a smile and positivity. The Gov. dictates only 10 mins per patient, and when every patient takes more than 10 mins, there's bound to be a time conflict. Every medical office must follow the 10 mins per patient rule. Accept it and move on. Expect a wait and you won't be dissapointed. Ask for the first appt of the day and you won't have to wait. She's good Dr. and runs her office as efficiently as possible.  See Responses

07/09/13 5 3 1 3 Staff - very friendly. Punctual - I've had to wait a couple of hours twice due to the fact that Dr B is a delivering OB, and emergencies come up. Helpfulness - Dr Blezynski is very unhelpful. She is busy but EVERY appointment Ive seen her, she reasks the same questions as the appt before, or she tells me I need a referral for something that she's already given me and we've already discussed in previous appts. She does NOT go over the notes shes made herself. I have to remind her each visit of the visit before. Very annoying. Dr Blezynski treats me basically like a stranger every visit. She has on multiple occasions completely ignored a question I've had regarding discomforts that dont seem to be the "norm" and blamed my weight without even a second thought (after discusssions with another dr, these issues were rectified, and had nothing to do with my weight). She gets the job done - but isn't an outstanding Dr. I will absolutely try harder to find a different dr next pregnancy  Respond

13/08/13 5 1 4 4 After the confusion was settled between myself and the Doctor, the Doctor asked me a number of questions and I felt as though she was helpful and I wouldn't say she was rude but she just a different personality, she did smile and was nice to me. I think a lot of the comments maybe misconstrued as we all know people are just rude at no fault of the doctor or the staff. My experience with the staff was pleasant and they were friendly. I'm sure a lot of people would get the same frustration when dealing with idiots all day long. It clearly says at the front desk that times are approximate and you are to fill out the information sheet whether or not you have seen the doctor before but I witnesses at least 3 people ask what stupid questions and as always the receptionist said please fill out the form and leave it with her. I think these girls take a lot of abuse and deserve credit for dealing with crappy people.

22/07/13 1 1 1 1 Dr.Blezinsky's office is the most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with. This also being said for the doctor herself. This is my third child with her and never have I been treated the way I was today. Ashley her MOA had a really bad attitude and was rude. I was on time for my appointment. I got there with a full waiting room and asked how long the wait was. I was told 40 mins. I waited an hour asked again, how long is the wait, I was told 20-30 mins more. I had asked why they overbook and make people wait my appointment was one hour ago and she was rude and told me to then find a new doctor or boo for another time. I responded with, and waste another day!. She rudely told me to sit down and wait and she would get the doctor. Dr. Blezinsky didn't even bother to come out and had just said for me to find a new doctor. Again this is a prenatal appointment. A prenatal doctor with such unprofessional staff and doctor herself. I left and am making sure MSP does not pay for that appoitmt

18/10/12 3 1 4 4 I read these ratings and was horrified as I was already dealing with a high risk pregnancy.The bad first: Expect to wait.. The shortest I have had to wait so far was 40 mins. You deal with her office assistance before you see her. I was not happy with the fact that an office assistant commented on my weight gain They are not horrible though. Dr B herself seems to be old school Russian. She has never been mean to me or made me feel bad (I am overweight but she has never mentioned it) She told me my fundal height was good and you hear the heartbeat at every appointment. I ask what I want to know and its usually a very short appointment. She did a really good job explaining what was going on and putting me at ease. I kind of like that she is blunt and to the point, but that is just me. If you are high risk and get sent to her don't be scared. I think just like most people if you treat them with respect you will get it back. Best of luck in your pregnancy!  Respond

I always looked forwarded to my appts, her staff is friendly and outgoing! I look forward to seeing her again for my next baby, and will not go to anyone else! I was completely satisfied with her in EVERY way... she gave me one of my dreams... a family! and that is something that is very special. In the hospital, she was awesome she took me through my c-section and made it go smoothly... she is not only a wonderful, outstanding Doctor in my eyes, but a nice person!

05/01/12 1 1 1 2 I'm writing this review because I am currently here with my pregnant wife and a 2 hour wait because they have once again overbooked. *Staff: Incompetent at best. Completely disorganized and rude. First appointment was scheduled without our knowledge and we were given notice the day before. Due dates are on our documents but their staff managed to mix them up by several months at least twice. *Punctuality: Always overbooked. Expect to wait at least 1-2 hours even with appointments. *Helpfulness: Dr Maria is quick to get you out, and sends you to her staff to make another appointment for the following month. *Knowledge: I'm sure she knows what she's doing, but doesn't do very good job conveying information. Our overall experience has been poor. With bi-weekly/weekly visits approaching, we're hoping to get a transfer because the wait times are absolutely brutal. Also, the staff is terrible. I'm not even sure how she's getting all these referrals.  Respond

28/11/11 1 1 4 4 I was referred to her through my family doctor. I asked my doctor if he actually contacted Dr Maria to make an appointment since I didn't hear anything back. He said he already did weeks ago. So I called Dr Maria's office directly and found out that an appointment was already made for me without my knowledge within the next few days. When I asked the receptionist why they didn't call me, she said "they didn't get around to it but they were going to". Anyways, I made some last minute schedule changes at work to accomodate the appointment. Two days before the appointment, I got a call and they wanted to confirm the appointment. They gave me the wrong time. I asked for them to correct it to the original time that we had planned. When I got to the office, I waited for 2.5 hours. Staff was extremely rude and I just kept my temper in and cried afterwards. Dr Maria is great for the one time I met her, but everything else was horrible. I'm trying to find another doctor as we speak.  Respond

12/10/11 1 1 1 1 She is an extremely rude, arrogant and humiliating doctor and hired the staff that keeps it up. She literally treat her patients like cows, no patient minding, stick her tools in you and hurl them to the sink in scary and rude manner. Insulting and shunting patient all along especially if you ask a question. She always feel like in very bad mood or rather hate her job. I begged my family doctor to give me the referral for ANY other gynecologist but she said Maria is the only one available given my medical urgency (others have weeks of waiting time); ofcourse; because nobody want to go to her, I would NEVER go to her if I had a choice. This is a dilemma with Surrey city that it is short of doctors and that's why some really bad doctors still in business. Poor patients are exploited because they don't have choice. This is the bad part of Canada MSP. Doctor counseling is half of the cure, but with her it is other way around, she and her staff would do their best to make you cry.  Respond

26/05/11 3 1 2 3 Oops. I really should have looked at this before she removed a cyst of mine last fall. She was knowledgeable and we communicated well, though the pap tests were the worst I've ever had. Very rough! She did order all the tests needed and was organized with my information and got things done. However, I had to wait 2 days in recovery before she came to tell me whether or not I still had my ovaries. (anxiety!) She only visited me a couple minutes in the hospital and didn't ask if I had any questions. I was never told how to take care of the wound and was pleasantly surprised when they were dissolving, though it would have been nice to know basic things like that for my first surgery. When I went back to get checked and get a Dr's note, they made me pay quite a bit for papers EI didn't even need. Dr Maria wasn't there and the Dr filling in couldn't believe how badly uneven the scar is. I'm just glad the surgery is done, but could do without this crazy hack job war wound.  Respond

16/05/11 1 1 1 1 All the good comments are here, i doubt its written by an actual patient of Dr. Bleznski. DO* NOT* WASTE* YOUR* TIME*. I took my mother who cannot speak very good english and had most absurd experience ever. The staff was rude, with very frustrated tone of voice. At first I was patient, understanding that its a very busy environment and things can get very frustrating. But thats not the case. My mother had her pap test and apparently Dr Blezenski sprayed some tap water on her medical instrument(i cannot recall the name of it but its use to insert in vagina and check up there) and litterly pushed it bluntly in her vagina. My mother cried in pain but she just went ahead and followed the procedure. When I called back to the office after hearing this from my mother, the receptionist told me its because Dr. Blezenski's mother is very sick back in Germany and is in very frustrating situation...Seriously? Anyways dont waste your time here.  Respond

28/01/10 1 1 1 1 This woman is the most rude Dr I have come across. She was on-call Dr when I had my first son. I was overweight and in intense labor and she came into check to see how dilated I was. She took one look at me and with a roomful of Nurses, Dr's and my husband say's "How much do you weigh"? When I told her she rolled her eyes and shook her head. It was the most embarassing moment of my life! And here I am in pain already! Then she stitched me up wrong and I got an infection that lasted 5 months! Then to boot, a few hrs after my son was born she came into the room and in front of my husband and says to me " I hope you know your son is lucky to be alive and I'm a little surprised that he is, with your weight being so high. You better not think about getting pregnant again at this weight" then she walked out! Didn't ask how we were doing or anything! I mean if she was concerned about my weight she could have offered some help on how to lose it. WORST DR I EVER MET!!!!!  Respond

She is always running at least 2 hours late. She doesn't make any effort to inform herself about the reason for your appointment before you see her so half of your appointment time is wasted telling her things that are already in your chart. She speaks down to you like you're stupid and brushes off your concerns and questions. She is arguementative. She spends most of her time hiding behind her computer screen. I told her I was hearing impaired and needed to see her lips so I could understand her.She put her hand over her mouth and continued to talk! She didn't give me any answers. She is only interesting in billing...not treatment or patient care. Worst office I've ever been in!!  Respond

She asked my permission to have a student physician participate in the examination and biopsy. The resulting hysterectomy went well. Her bedside manner in hospital was warm and supportive. Throughout all the follow up checkups over the years, which have been painless, she has been friendly and smiling - even the time she looked like she'd been up all night.

I know i do not have it but my baby will need a Hep B shot if there is no paperwork stating i am negative (by law). Ridiculous! Why are important tests missed??? Now my new Gyn needs to see if there is a way for us to rush the test before his delivery.

I have had hormone/reproductive problems from a very young age and due too the sensitive nature of my problems I needed to see a professional who would investigate and treat the issues, rather than make me feel bad for suggesting that I even had them to begin with. I am now having problems conceiving and although I hate to speculate, I really think that if she'd done some tests and treated my concerns as real I may now know why. My mother in law is also currently dying of Uterine Cancer, she was told the symptoms were just the typical stages of menapause.....No testing was done until 2yrs later and by a different Gyno at which point it was too late.  Respond

Then I go for a follow-up exam, well what doctor has a dirty drawer full of those clamps open in plain view for a patient to see? I asked her to wash one before having it anywhere near me and you should have seen the nasty look she gave me while simply wetting it under the sink tap with cold water and shaking off the drips...ya okay, very professional right here in my backyard at Surrey Memorial. Too bad we don't have enough good doctors to go around, I am ashamed and so should our local hospital for employing her.  Respond

17/05/07 1 1 3 Is the rudest Dr I have ever ever met. I have many internal exams in my time, most are uncomfortable, the one she gave me was AWFULL!!!! IT was very painful, then she yelled at me and told me to stop "guarding" Well if it wasn't so painful I wouldn't have been guarding!!!! Then she told me I was a terrible pt. I have cervical problems for 10 years and in that time not once have I ever had an interanl exam that painful.  Respond

09/05/07 3 5 5 Dr. B. performed my emergency C-section. I prefer a doctor who says it like it is. Currently my family doctor is the wait-and-see, dont-worry-unless-you-have-to type who seems like they are too smart to deal with me. HOWEVER Dr. B. told me everything that was going on throughout. She didn't exaclty give me a hug, but I felt like she was very professional. No hand-holding here, but if you want a straight-up doctor here she is. By the way, she performed my 6-wweek checkup and it was the best pelvic exam I've ever had.  Respond

30/04/07 1 1 3 I have been dying to write about my experience with this woman. She is the rudest, most uncaring, unsanitary individual I have every been to. I found her to be demeaning and almost abusive in the way she spoke to me. She needs to be spoken to or leave the job....  Respond

25/04/07 5 2 2 Wow, I honestly have never been to a more cold and unkind doctor. I saw her on three different emergency occasions for a high risk preganancy. The first time I saw her I could hardly believe that she was the doctor. First she barked at me "COME HERE", Then she gave me an internal exam that was, i kid you not, excrutiatingly painful (and I have a very high pain threshold). I know that procedure should absolutely not feel like that because I also had the same procedure on two other occasions with zero pain. She DID NOT CARE about the pain she caused. ZERO ZERO ZERO bedside manner. Unbelievable. The one thing I will give her is that she seems to treat problems aggressively. Still, I would NOT reccommend her by any means. You should not go to a doctor, especially for high risk pregnancy, and leave feeling terrible about yourself.  Respond

18/04/07 1 3 5 I had Dr.B as my OB when I had both my kids. The waits in her office are unbelievable. I mean, if you book a 10am appointment, you should be out of there before noon, right? She doesn't have the most outgoing or hand-holding personality, but after seeing how she was right on top of my high-risk pregnancies and the very difficult labour/delivery with my daughter, I think she's a top knotch doctor.  Respond

17/04/07 3 2 2 I was suspected to have endemetriosis & was referred to this rude woman. She was not approachable in the least. She did a laproscopy on me. Turns out that she nicked something during the procedure & I bled internally. When I went back to the hopsital to be admitted that night due to extreme pain, fever etc she refused to come & deal with me. The hospital had to assign me someone else. For what I had been told was a simple day surgery bought me 5 days in hospital & 3 weeks recovery. I wouldn't see this woman again if my life depended on it. In fact, when pregnant, I found out that she was one of 5 ob/gyn people in a group & could possibly be the one to deliver my baby. Let me say that I made it perfectly clear that she was not to touch me. I even made plans to go to another hospital if she was on-call.  Respond

12/04/07 1 1 1 I was referred to Dr. B by my family doctor. I had to wait in the waiting room for about an hour. When I was finally called I was left standing in the hallway. Then I watched as Dr. B yelled at her nurses and patients. Then she walked by me without looking and said are you coming in? I didn't even realize I was being addressed. She yelled at me. An when I finally had a pap test I was telling her I was in extreme pain and she said I was moving too much. She pulled the duck bill thingy out and THREW it in the sink and yelled at me that she couldn't get an accurate reading because I was uncooperative. She took me into her office and turned the client screen of her com at me and wrote that on my medical file. All the while yelling at me. I went home that night in pain and bled a bit. I found out 3 months later that I was pregnant I could have miscarried if I had not said something about the pain and she had not stopped. She is a horrible insensitive doctor. Be afraid,Don't go!!  Respond

04/04/07 1 1 1 I would not recomend her to my worst enemy. Had my first child young (which obviously is not her fault) but my daughter got delivered by c-section by her, was VERY rude and uncompassionate. Almost died on her table due to blood loss.  Respond

18/03/07 2 1 2 Not a very compassionate Dr...have seen her on two separate occassions...wasn't impressed either time. Had surgery performed by her...she came in angry, didn't even say "good morning" and I woke up with major bruising...I have had 8 other surgeries of the same and NEVER come out of them in the shape I was in when she saw me. EX-PATIENT since 1993. Would NOT recommend.  Respond

18/03/07 1 2 4 This is a tough one... She was my specialist when I was trying to get pregnant about 15 years ago. As I found out in recent years my difficulties to conceive were due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome,not diagnosed by her. I was put on fertility pills. Anyway, the waits are unbearable. Dr. B. came across as rude and arrogant. No compassion. Just business. On the other hand,when I did conceive, she was very aggressive about sending me for tests to monitor my pregnancy. Within 2 weeks of knowing I was pregnant, she knew that I had an ectopic pregnancy. Once it was confirmed, she had me in surgery, and I believe she is very competent in the O.R. She seemed genuinely concerned with my feelings when she informed me that she could not save my fallopian tube. When I successfully gave birth 2 years later, she was on holidays, as was my GP. Complete strangers delivered my daughter, and I have not gone back to see Dr. B again. It sounds like nothing has changed.  Respond

15/03/07 2 1 2 Has a vert strong accent and always seems to have something in her mouth making her unintelligible. Seems too busy to spend time with patients and always seems to be in a rush. Delivered my 1st child by unnecessary c-section, too impatient to wait for blood pressure to lower. She left a 12 inch scar. Would not let her touch me with a 10 foot pole,  See Responses

07/03/07 3 5 5 What an incredible woman! She has one of the busiest OB/GYN practices in the the lower mainland. Yes she is busy but I always felt she had my best interests in mind. She does smile and is quite friendly when you get to know her. My baby is 16 years old now and thanks to Dr. B she is a healthy wonderful young lady. Dr B. was my surgeon for another medical procedure, she was thorough, efficient and I felt completely secure with her doing the surgery. My follow up appointments were informative and she spent time with me to go over all my questions. We even shared a laugh. I think the world is a better place for having someone like Dr. B out there looking after us women. If we had more doctors the wait time in her office would not be so long. Keep up the Great Work!  Respond

01/03/07 3 5 5 She is a very efficient, smart and busy doctor! I was impressed that she enters all her notes electronically and has a "paperless" office, which is also tastefully decorated! I felt confident that she was giving me the best care and accurate diagnosis. I actually liked her once I got beyond her rather brusque manner. That is her personality/background. I do think she cares about her patients even though she might have a hard time showing it. She was very thorough with my diagnosis/surgery and follow-up and even managed a smile or two! It is often harder to have a "relationship" with a specialist than with a regular family doctor because one doesn't see them as much possibly. They seem stressed/detached perhaps because they see so many "strangers" (other doctors' patients).  Respond
