09/09/11 3 4 4 4 Dr. Mamelak was very friendly and knowledgeable. I felt however that he was promoting his skin products and not offering other off the shelf alternatives. The older secretary is brutal and needs training on customer service. She is not welcoming and very rude.  Respond

26/08/11 4 5 5 5 As a parent of a teenage girl where acne is a life & death matter, I would like to take this opportunity to share our recent experience with Dr. Mamelak. Referred by our family doctor, we recently completed Dr. Mamelak’s prescribed acutane program. Earlier this year, our daughter’s facial acne problem was severe, and as a teenager heavily involved in active sports with sweating all the time, problem was getting worse by the week. We tried number of medication but nothing seemed to work, so finally our family doctor referred us to Dr. Mamelak. From our initial consultation and through the program, he explained clearly about some of the side-effects and how to deal with them. With kind support and professional guidances from Dr. Mamelak, our daughter successfully overcame these side effects. After 4 months of supervised medication and dedication, our daughter’s face show great improvement / cure, and we are all very happy with the results. Thank you very much, Dr. Mamelak.  Respond

17/08/11 3 4 5 5 He was very friendly and helpful. Explained everything and was receptive to all questions. He treated ne for some Basel Cells with very positive results. Apparently he is leaving Mississauga and that means we are losing a good doctor  Respond

28/05/11 3 3 1 1 Skin cancer, or anything cancer in our society, tends to terrify anyone, in my opinion, thus we are easily compliant. Dr. Mamolek lacks the depth of knowledge and caring necessary to be a good MOH's surgeon. I came away with the impression that I could so easily be disfigured for life with MOH's and that the risk just isn't worth it. Disappointing that this doctor and others can't realize that a person's appearance is very important. In addition, I am very suspicious of how easily the term cancer is used.  Respond

09/04/11 3 4 3 3 Very surprised at good ratings. It longer to complete the patient form than actual appointment. Appointment started out with "Why are you Here ?" To a quick scan of sun damaged on my face, ignoring any mention of other damaged areas, to "I'll get my gun {?} ", to zapping me with no warning as to pain or anything else from "the gun ". A quick "these spots will blister and look bad for a time. Good Bye !" Will never return...  Respond

24/01/11 1 2 3 3 Based on the reviews here, had asked my Family Phys. to refer me to this doctor specifically. After 3 weeks, no response came back. Called to check on the status of the appointment. The receptionist told me "No", to my statement "I am calling to check the date of my appointment". Was treated very rudely and abruptly. Not sure if this is the norm for this doctor, but was very disappointed.  Respond

25/08/10 1 2 5 5 Dr. Mamelak is awesome. But honestly, he needs to do something about that receptionist! Each time I call on the phone it's like I'm bothering her, and she's just as miserable in person.  Respond

29/04/10 5 5 5 5 I was very pleased with dr.Mamelak's personality and knowledge. He removed a mole on my shoulder and answered any questions I had. The procedure was fast and painless. He is also cheaper than most laser clinics with laser/botox treatments. Highly recommendable.  Respond

28/10/09 4 4 5 5 He is very polite and friendly. He explains things well and is very knowledgeable. His office is very busy so he does have to rush around but it does not effect his care. I trust in his ability and expertise.  Respond

27/10/09 1 4 5 5 I was very impressed with Dr. Mamelak as he took the time to listen to my concerns, completed a full skin scan and was pre-emptive in care with removal of questionable moles. I was impressed with the care of the procedure for removal and the overall impression that I was not to be rushed through the service like a cattle ranch. The BIGGEST downfall of the office is the receptionist. In fact not only did she yell at patients on the phone but said rude comments after hanging up lound enough for all in the waiting area to hear. When I called in to reschedule an appointment there was clear disgust in her voice and the notion that I was wasting her time. I would advise the office to train her on customer service and professionalism. Especially as some service are fee per use.  Respond

20/10/09 3 3 2 5 Very helpful and kind in explaining details however too great a delay in scheduling due to travel and constraints on availability in Ottawa. Delayed without scheduling prolonged, delaying treatment of (non melanoma) skin cancer.. frightening.  Respond

14/07/09 4 4 5 5 I felt as though he tried to make me as comfortable and informed as possible and there is not much more you could ask from a doctor. His treatment and advice has reigned true and I was very impressed and content with this doctor's visit of mine considering it is the one thing in this world that I absolutely dread  Respond

27/04/09 1 3 3 3 Doctor is very nice and thorough. I felt very comfortable with her. The nurse is warm and caring. The receptionist is BRUTAL. Rude, arrogant, unfriendly. Whined the whole time I was there about how many papers she has and she did not have lunch. Spent most of the time texting on her phone and almost looked "bothered" when I approached the window for direftions to the washroom. If anything SHE would be the person that would turn me off from this MD. Excellent physician though.  Respond

07/03/09 5 4 5 5 Dr. Mamelak works with another dermatoligist, Dr. Harris, who has been in Mississauga for many years. Their staff is pleasant and helpful. Dr Mamelak takes time to respond knowledgeably to questions and gives clear direction for treatments. I'm very happy with my treatment results. Dr. Mamelak specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery which, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation (http://www.skincancer.org/) "has the highest cure rate for basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas"
