25/02/14 2 2 2 1 The last time I visited this doctor was my first and last all rolled into one. I was a teenager, and was having problems with my period staying regular. She arrived to the appointment late. Was not very friendly considering I had never met her before. She recommended I go on birth control, which was not an issue. The entire visit, she had her back turned to me, and seemed more interested in the wall then me. At some point through out the visit, she outright told me I was fat, and needed to loose weight. I was nearly in tears as soon as those words came out of her mouth. At the time I may have weighed around 160 pounds. I was shocked, offended and that was the last time I ever saw her, thankfully. I have never met someone so harsh in this field. I would not let her examine me if she were the last doctor on earth. Awful manners, no heart, and just plain rude.  Respond

24/06/13 3 2 1 1 I will never, ever, ever allow this woman to touch me again. Internal surgery with no anaesthetic, bad enough that the nurse in the room told me that was one of the worst things she has ever had to experience. Terrible, terrible experience. About to deliver my first baby and if she is doctor on call at hospital, I will demand another doctor or get up and leave and drive elsewhere.

03/06/13 5 3 5 5 Personally I am very happy with my decision to see Dr.Yegappan when I got pregnant. Though there were a few times she was late, they were due to the fact that she was delivering a baby which can be expected with any OB/GYN. I have had no issues with her and she is very helpful when I have a question for her. This being my first pregnancy I have been very nervous at many times and she has been reassuring about many things and has helped me threw quite a few issues. I plan on returning to see her with any other pregnancies or issues I may have.  See Responses

21/03/13 4 1 1 1 All the bad comments are true. I have had several appts here and I'm writing this as I'm here for the last time. 5 ppl were scheduled for a 9:30 appt and the Dr strolls in at 10. By this time it is standing room only. I had cryotherapy last yr and the only info I got on the procedure, why I need it etc was from the receptionist. The Dr won't talk to you or give you the time of day. Just wastes yours. It is now 10:20 and at least I'm thru to the next waiting room but 4 ahead of me.  Respond

18/03/13 5 3 1 2 I was referred to Yeggapan because I had a few bad pap test results. One night I experienced excrutiating pain in my uterus and called for an appointment. My family Dr. sent me to get an ultrasound where they found several cysts and a tumour. I went to see Yeggapan, she told me I had HPV, I was completely shocked and unfamiliar with this disease and she told me to google it. She is very rough and very short. I had to have a colposcopy and cyrotherapy, she rushed me out of her office after the cryotherapy because she was behind and I fainted in the elevator. To this day she hasn't spoken to me about my tumour or cysts, and said to wait until they grow or burst. I had an MRI done in the US, and the tumour had grown. She has done nothing. I told her that my period usually lasts 3 days with no pain, now since the tumour it's been 10 days of agony, the last 2 months I didn't have my period (not pregnant), she told me as long as you take the pill it doesn't matter. Hate this woman.  Respond

12/09/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Yegappan has been my doctor since I was 16 and she has delivered both of my children. She recently performed my hysterectomy and I have nothing bad to say about her. She is always professional and will give you her opinion good or bad. I find her caring and helpful and the only doctor that I trust. She is there if you need her and will even make house calls if you are upset. She has been extremely helpful to me and took every precaution she could before recommending sregery to solve my problem. I would not hesistate to recommned her at all.  Respond

05/09/12 1 1 1 1 probably the worse experience i have had with any person, never mind doctor in my entire life. I will begin to see a councellor for the horrible experience i had. She was very rough, did not cover me, was abrupt and rude, literally physically pushed me out of her office to go get my blood test, and when my baby died told me to stop crying and be tough. i am warning you this woman is dangerous. She does not have her license to deliver babies. only to follow the pregnancy because too many babies have suffered complications and died. another friend of mine went to her and when she could not find the heartbeat told her that her baby is dead. the baby was not dead, she went to someone else for a second opinion and the baby was alove. if she had taken the pills to expel the pregnancy her baby would have suffered malformations or would have died. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS WOMAN. SHE IS A CRIMINAL.  Respond

06/06/12 4 3 2 2 My mother went to this doctor not long ago for a simple test. My mother left her office crying and more scared than before the Dr. is very rude calling my mother "a big baby". She has no manners and should really watch what she says to her patients especially cancer patients. I would never recommend her, if you can avoid her please do so.  Respond

I even feel scared if I go to the hospital now, it was a terrific experience. I would like to warn people and personally suggest not using or selecting any service from this doctor for your Gynecology related problem. I regret for my decision but want to save you from disaster. Thanks to Nikki and the other unknown person, as they come forward to vote against this women.

10/11/11 1 1 1 1 She is the WORST doctor I have ever seen. I waited 2 1/2 hours for her to make an appearance and when she showed she bursted through the door not even looking at all the patients waiting. When I got into the office she told me to take my pants and underwear off and lay on the table. She pulled my body to the end of the table without word and yelled at me for being nervous. When I asked her what she was doing she just said to watch. Didn't explain anything and took a biopsy without saying anything. When I sat up she yelled at me because I was bleeding on the table. She grabbed a pad and shoved it between my legs. Yelled at me to put my underwear on which was across the room that she never left. When I asked information about what hpv was she said "look it up on the Internet" and then continued to say "you really should be more careful with the people you're with." and looked at me like I was dirty. I left the office crying and will never ever go back. Seriously considered suing.  Respond

18/08/11 5 4 3 2 Her secretary was very friendly and warm and very helpful. It's too bad that Dr. Yegappan wasn't the same way. I had a colposcopy with Dr. Yegappan and she came in and introduced herself to me and not the family member with me which was rude. I was nervous as it was and all she said was to get undressed and lay on the table. She was not sypathetic or caring and was very short with her commands and her responses. Her overall presence is cold and I felt as if she were judging me and she probably was. Avoid her if you can.  Respond

05/05/11 5 1 1 1 This is my first pregnancy and I wish I would have went elsewhere. I have not left her office once yet NOT in tears. She has changed my due date several times yet all based on the SAME ultrasound, and now that I am going to be 42 weeks on Friday she still refuses to induceme until next Thursday because she's busy this week. I am disgusted with the lack of care I receive and that I am made to look like an idiot for asking simple questions about my own progress. She is rough, unprofessional, does not explain procedure and is the most dumbfounded inconsistent doctor I've ever visited. DO NOT accept a referral to this doctor!! 42 weeks pregnant and waiting without care, may I remind you! And even with a request, am STILL being refused induction!!!  Respond

03/05/11 2 1 1 1 Dr. Yegappan did NOT assist my mother who recently passed away from cervial cancer. As her Gynecologist, she did NOTHING about my moms continuous abnormal pap results over the years. She told my mom that was normal and never refered her to a more knowledgable specialist...how disgusting! Yes, my mom should have gone for a second opinion herself, but wasn't the type to override her Doctor, whom she trusted. PLEASE do not trust this incompetent Dr. with your paps, and their results...

22/01/11 4 4 5 5 It seems as though people only want to make negative comments so I will share my own possitive experience with Dr.Yegappan. She delivered both my babies...yes she is busy and you may have to wait quite a while for your visits, but what do you expect when she is one of only two doctors that deliver in the Niagara Falls hospital! She is a very busy women who dedicates most of her time to her profession! When she is not in the office, she is usually in the hospital with a patient or on call. She has never been rude to me or rushed me even with a room full of people waiting! Please, give the poor women a break!!!  Respond

21/12/10 3 1 1 1 She was my OB,I left her 1/2 way through my pregnancy in favour of a good doctor.I get to the hospital to deliver & she was on call.I cried. Every request I made was ignored.I wanted the cord to remain attached until it stopped pulsing, she clamped & cut right away.I didn't want constant monitoring, she did it anyways.I wanted immediate skin to skin contact, request ignored.I wanted to breastfeed immediately & she made me wait 45 minutes.As I crowned they gave me a shot of something that's supposed to expell the placenta or some BS.I never signed permission for it,nor did I ask for it.I didn't even feel it, I just happened to look down and there was a needle in my hip. I didn't want her sticking her fingers in me to check how close the baby was (I was 10 cm and pushing she doesn't need to be checking anymore) she did. I kicked her for doing it at one point.It is sexual assault to insert anything into a person without permission.I will never give birth in a hospital again after that.  Respond

30/11/10 1 1 1 2 Dr. Yegappan is extremely rude and impersonal. Her bedside manner is very poor. The only words she said to me the entire time was to get undressed and lay on the table. She does not explain ANYTHING. She is very rough with her instruments and shows absolutely no concern or compassion for her patients. As a health care professional myself, I find her very inconsiderate and would not recommend her to anyone! I was warned about her from a friend. I should have listened!  Respond

Reached in with her hand and yanked out my placenta and stitched me up unfrozen. Also, my baby had low apgar cord around her neck and wasn't crying.

27/09/10 4 1 1 1 What a horrible experience. She is in this job to cause physical abuse. She was rude and treated me like a piece of meat. I had Jackewitz and had always loved him. Dr Yegappan is the reason I did not go for a pap test for several years. I now have a gynecologist in Hamilton and what a difference. I am talked to and I am actually treated like a person. And pap test are not meant be so painfull you can not leave the office. What is she doing?? I swore at her and left the office. Should have suid her.. she should loose her licence. hands down.. she is brutal. I would never treat my clients in such a matter.. avoid her at all cost.  Respond

I have been with Dr. Yegappan for my last two pregnancies and I find her incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, comforting, and compassionate. I haven't yet gone through labour with her, but I am definitely anticipating a better labour than I had the last time. I would highly recommend her. She is a very caring woman, and yes...sometimes you've got a long wait in her office but there are only two ob/gyn's allowed to deliver babies in Niagara Falls so it's completely understandable. I feel very lucky to have her as my ob/gyn this time around!  Respond

28/06/10 2 1 3 3 I have to agree that she has no bedside manner. I went to her with my first son, and when I went into labor she argued with me in the office that I was 30 weeks when I was 38 (my son was born the next day). When he was born, he had a handprint bruised on his head because of the way she grabbed him. I decided to go to Cheema for my second son, and ended up getting her again when I went into labor. Fortunately my second son came very quickly (I pushed once and had him crowned) so she wasn't able to bruise his head!  Respond

21/06/10 1 2 1 1 Dr. Yegappan has no bedside manner to speak of. She does not explain what she is doing to you or why. She has zero sensitivity and looked at me like I was an idiot for getting upset about the fact that I may have been facing some type of cancer down there. She would not even leave the room to let me get dressed privately. She was very rough with the instruments and I bled for several hours after seeing her. She also fails to understand the importance of patients wanting to know results, EITHER WAY! It's no big deal to her that her patients are anxiously awaiting potentially life altering results, and she gets irritated if you ask for a timeline as to how long it'll be before YOU can call back to find out. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Her behaviour to me indicates that she is not a doctor for any of the right reasons. I urge you to seek help elsewhere.  Respond

11/02/10 1 1 1 1 very rough and not helpful. when my baby was being born, her shoulder was stuck on my pelvis. so instead of moving the shoulder the doctor just pulled my baby out hard ripping all of the nerves in my babies left shoulder & neck connecting to her spine. the doctor said my baby would be fine - that she would grow out of it. 9 month later my child still has no use of her left arm and it pains her when i try to move it during her exercises. today my child is at sick kids in toronto going through surgery to correct this issue which never should have happened to begin with. yagapan is responsible for my daughters nerves being ripped out of her spine at birth, not correcting her actions and for causing my 9 month old little girl to have to go through 10hrs of major surgery. thank the doctores at sick kids and the Lord that the surgery has gone well, but it should never have had to take place.  Respond

Did not read my chart, as chart was clear I had just had a cast removed for a broken leg two weeks before delivering my son. She walked in, and pushed on the bad leg and told my husband to "pull harder". Then she told me to stop my whining as I had an epidural.

02/02/10 1 1 1 3 I went there twice and would never go back. The waiting room is tiny, can't really comment on how clean, all patients are on top of each other. To speak to the receptionist you have to talk over another patient's head (chairs are right in front of the reception window as well). They do NOT answer their phone. One time I called 20+ times (in one day) because the meds I was on were making me sick. I left several messages with their "answering service" (during business hours) and noone ever called me back. Her exams are horrible. She almost ripped my bra (wanted to examine breasts and just started yanking it up. I heard the seams come apart). It is SO not worth it. I ended up going to a wonderful ob-gyn in Toronto and have NEVER regretted the 1 hour drive to have a doctor's visit like a human being instead of being treated as cattle.  Respond

I went in for my appointment, waited well over an hour to see her, was told to undress. So, I undressed and waited for her to come in, she asked my sexual history... when I told her that I was in a committed same sex relationship at that time, she very rudely informed me that sinc e I am a lesbian I have no need to have intercourse, then refused to examine me and left the room. I was later referred to Dr. Cepeda in Hamilton for infertility who informed me that I had a tumor and it needed to be removed. I am finally experiencing no pain. I am about to deliver my first child.

24/07/09 5 5 3 5 this doctor has a record of being ruff during examinations and delivery. she was ruff with me, however, she delivered two children by cesarian section, both were perfectly healthy children. My husband and I both agree, what she has to do, is one of the toughest jobs. So many women were coming into deliver my first child, we saw her deliver 3-4 babies while she was attending to me. I ended up waiting very long for my cesarian because she was helping the other emergencies first, but we completely understood. The doctors visits can be a wait at times, but once you see what she does in the delivery ward you understand, she is only human and must find time to sleep once and awhile. It is wonderful to have a female gyno, and could not change. She is a very busy woman, and we have much appreciation for her help, I will return for our third child and another c section, which she did a wonderful job on 2 times. I have had worse experiences with other doctors. A bit rough, but so are other gyos.  Respond

25/10/08 1 2 1 2 Dr delivered my first 10 years ago, rough delivery, put foot on bed and reefed on baby's head to get her out...scary! While pregnant with my second recently, waited too long on IPS results, made appt at MAC for me at 24 weeks to consult about possible Downs Syndrome baby. Was asked at MAC why I never showed up at my other 2 appts. Was never contacted about these appts. Also, by 24 wks, there is no option to terminate pregnancy if you choose, so had I wanted to terminate I couldn't have, simply because of incompetence.

04/05/08 1 1 1 5 she is very knowledgeable but doesn't want to share why she does a procedure. if you ask questions your being anxious. she is rough. we had it out one day and i told her she was too rough and didn't care for her unprofessionalism and that's why i went to a diff dr. she turned everything around on me and i walked out of there and cried in my car. she tried to make me feel ungrateful for what she had done previously for me in getting pregnant. the worst experience ever. when she ran into my husband in public she held her head down when she saw him. they acknowledged each other. she knew i would have told him my run in with her. the only other positive thing i can say is she did get my son delivered who was a big baby. 8 lbs 15oz and a 15" diameter head, yes it was an ouchie. but it left me with nerve damage down there and i couldn't feel when i had to go to the bathroom until it was almost out and then i couldn't get to the toilet on time. the docs here, its like pick your poison  Respond

16/01/08 5 3 5 5 Staff are very nice and accommodating. Dr is not always on time, but that is normal given the nature of her profession. Remember, you just might be the reason she's late for her appointments someday is she is delivering your baby. Found her to be extremely compassionate especially during the final days leading up to the birth of my son.  Respond

02/01/08 1 1 1 1 Unfortunately there are no zeros (or negative numbers) on the above scale! She is very rough and hurried. I have fertility problems so she was trying to help through the use of injections and ultrasounds. After two failed procedures I returned to her office (and waited the normal 2 hours). She rushed into the room said that it did not work and told me very abruptly I would never have children and left....all in less than 2 minutes....then went to see another patient. She ruined my live!!! She never told me that what she had done was not the same as London's fertility clinic (which is amazing, by the way) and I went for just under a year thinking that was it and had no hope. When I became pregnant (with the help of the London clinic) and began bleeding heavily, I went to the hospital and waited over 5 hours for her to come to see me. She did not even examine me. She told me I probably miscarried and to go home! This was the last time I saw her....RUN as fast as you can!  Respond

25/07/07 4 3 1 3 I find her very rough and condencending to younger generation. I am married, 23 year old with the same partner for 6 yrs and find she treats me like a child. She is rough when doing internals/paps and then doesn't come back to answer any of your questions. Would not likely go to her for prenatal/delivery care.  Respond

10/05/07 1 1 2 Worst experience ever with a Dr. Routine pap done by GP came back abnormal. Sent to Dr. Yeggappan for investigation. Thought we were having a consult,instead was told to get undressed where she then started to do a procedure on me I knew nothing about. She was very rough. She explained nothing to me and my questions (during the procedure) went unanswered. It was only after I got home and searched the internet that I got my questions answered. I never heard from her or her office about my results. Got results from my GP. Unfortunately a second procedure needed to be done.This was done at the hospital. Again, very rough, very painful. Luckily I had a wonderful nurse with me who helped me through this. Again, no results, again called my GP who explained everything to me. I have a follow-up this summer. I will not go back to her!! I've asked my GP to do the follow-up pap. After 30 years of pap tests and procedures - this was the worst!  Respond

19/03/07 3 1 1 This women should not be practicing. She did a biopsy on me and waited two weeks to call and tell me to come in for an appointment to tell me I had cancer. So I drive half an hour, all alone, to hear this shocking and horrific news. She asumes I know what she is going to say to me and tells me to go home and wait for a cancer doctor in Hamilton to call me. I try to ask a few questions and she cuts me short again says to go home and wait. I started to cry she hands me the kleenex box and says to use the room as long as I need and yes she leaves. Yes she left the room! I had heard other terrible stories about her but do not like to listen other people comments. I wish I had! This was one of the most terrible experiences I have ever had with a doctor.  Respond

12/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Yegappan is a wonderful doctor with an EXTREMELY busy practice. She is constantly back and forth between her office and the hospital which makes her unavoidably late for appointments. Sometimes I have had to wait 2 hrs for an appointment, but that happens with ALL OB/GYN's!! She delivered all 3 of my children and I am completely happy with her. She always listened to my concerns and admitted me right away to the hospital when I had problems. She may seem quick or abrupt, but she has MANY patients that count on her. I would not want any other OB/GYN. I have had experiences with 2 others in Niagara Falls, and they were both AWFUL!! I would recommend her to all of my friends.  Respond

04/03/07 1 2 3 Everything you have going on medical is just "something in your head". Makes you out to be a mental case when your symptoms are real and not half as bad as she makes them out to be to cover any mistakes she has made.Writes down procedures that were never even done. WAS very pleased with her until I saw behind the sidelines. Now I will never go back.  Respond

22/02/07 1 1 1 I agree with the last post...RUN LADIES RUN. This Doctor was so rough with me that my husband and I couldn't have intercourse for over a year without it hurting to the point of tears. I was so humiliated after leaving my appointment with her as she didn't even have the decency to turn around while I undressed and didn't even put a cover sheet on me while she examined me. I went to her for a routine PAP and never got the results, I wish I had of reported her to the Medical Board as she should have her license revoked for unprofessionalism. As for the cleanliness of her office and examination room...I won't even go there. It's a disgrace that we are held hostage by the lack of doctors which forces us to allow this to happen.  Respond

Her genuine concern and empathy helped to ease some of the terrible fear that went along with the complications and her persistence and dedication preserved our lives in what was truly life and death .  Respond
