04/02/13 2 2 2 2 Hi secretary messed up my apointment twice. After testing, Dr Mainra informed me I had asthma and 50% lung capacity. I went to St Paul's got re-tested and was told this was not true. The test at St Pauls was with better equipment and more thorough. He also told me the first visit I had a spot 1 cm across on one lung, on the next visit he told me I had spots on both lungs. When I said this was new information, he clained to have told me at the first visit which he did not.  Respond

20/04/12 4 3 5 5 He is a very skilled lung doctor, and I am comparing him to 2 others I have had experience with. He did the most thorough analysis of my problem, to get the diagnosis. He is overly busy but there are not enough in his specialty on the North Shore, only him. We are so lucky to have him here. He needs to be cloned.  Respond

27/12/11 1 2 2 4 Keep getting appointments with incorrect date for the day and when show up, there is no appointment. Left phone messages and faxed, before-hand - to no avail. Very frustrating to be treated this way.  Respond

25/04/11 1 3 1 1 This doctor is spreading himself too thin...he doesn't seem to have time for patients. He seems to work in the ICU, does Pulmonary consults and does Internal medicine....I had tests done, then I had to call office for results and wait 1 month to see him to discuss results...he seems to have too many fingers in many pies and can't do any of them well. I'll be changing doctors soon. Also elderly staffers are not very helpful.  Respond

11/08/10 4 4 3 5 Very arrogant doctor, his people skills need to be polished... a lot. On the other hand he knows his stuff, but the attitude is not necessary. You can be good at what you do and be nice at the same time...does not make you any less of a person!  Respond

04/01/10 2 2 1 1 This doctor is extremely arrogant, and misdiagnosed me. I told him I was seeing a psychiatrist so he "reassured" me that there was nothing wrong with me. He did not order any tests or exams. Two weeks later I had blood clots in both lungs and a in the front lobe of my brain.  Respond

03/05/09 3 4 1 4 Unfortunately, he basically has a monopoly as there are so few respirologists. His "people skills" are reprehensible and he comes across as impatient and arrogant. As well, he does NOT take time to explain the disease nor it's impact. Just the treatment.  Respond

07/01/09 2 2 3 3 While the doctor seems OK the staff is horrendous. Perhaps they should retire? Had my name wrong, my birthdate wrong and could not find my file for my pre-arranged appointment. Then sent me to Lions Gate at 8:45 for an 11:00 AM apt (which was also double booked)  Respond
