Dr. Kemkaran is an extreme example of an inadequate doctor. I seen him for over two years not out of satisfaction in his performance but out of necessity as there were no doctors taking new patients in my area. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and tumours by specialists prior to me having to find a general practitioner. Dr. Kemkaran was the only one taking new patients so I went to see him. The initial meeting seemed positive: he was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. It all went downhill from there. Each and every scheduled appointment involved: a two to three hour wait, him talking incessantly about his life, test results were never fully disclosed unless I asked about them, he failed to accurately read those test results which resulted in a situation in which I was dangerously low in certain nutrients which further exacerbated my disorder, he suggested treatment for a disorder that I did not have. Not a doctor if you require informed, consistent, quality care.

IT IS OK FOR PROFESSIONALS TO TEACH BY PERSONAL EXAMPLES OR STORIES. HE IS A PERSON. I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING PERSONAL AND WOULD NOT CARE. HE IS WORTH THE WAIT ASKS THE RIGHT QUESTIONS HAD SPOT ON THOROUGH TESTS DIAGNOSIS in 5 mins more than two hours with emergency VIA ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. THEREFORE HE IS THE BEST FRIEND A PATIENT COULD HAVE WHO WILL DIAGNOSE OR CATCH CANCER IN TIME BESIDES A DOCTOR LIKE THAT. HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR I EVER HAD more than a gp and will refer you to the best docs in the city. too bad you cannot please everyone. who cares if he wore sweatpants. i never noticed what or if he did. he is a doctor not a model. if he falls behind it is because each patient will get the treatment and time they need or deserve. if that isnt worth the wait or the proper preventative care what is. CUT THIS GREAT PROFESSIONAL SOME SLACK HE IS AN ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY. THE STAFF IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WAITS. anyone with some sense would appreciate his professional expertise.

I would gladly pay to see anyone besides this doctor. He put me on medication and then SCREAMS at me when I need more. He is the worst doctor I have ever been to which explains why he has had to move 5 times in as many years. He is a slob, dresses like a bum, is totally incapable of managing his time - he spends half an hour screaming at you because he has had a bad day and then says "your time is up" before he can check any real medical problems you may have. He would never survive in a city without a severe doctor shortage. He is a loser and a bully. Routinely one to two hours late for every appointment. He is condescending, uncaring and a general threat to the public. The 1st time I saw him he put his private parts on my knee. Don't see this doctor!!!! Is this what socialized medicine is? Total idiots for doctors??

Always at least an hour late.His excuses range from sleeping in to having to care for his mother and kids. Had to hear about his side business interests and how his sister doesn't help with their mother. I have heard at least 3 times about his racketball injuries and his divorce issues. Can not complain about anything to his staff, they don't want to hear it. They tell you to call ahead to find out the waiting time and then when you do come in, they still have 5 people ahead of you. Very rude receptionists on the phone. There are at least 3-4 of them in there and it seems like they haven't a clue of what they are doing. Can't understand them on the phone and when you tell them so, they get angry and rude. They love putting people on hold repeatedly and getting another one to answer so that you have to repeat your call to the next one, which is very frustrating. When you voice this, they get angry again and write nasty notes in your file. Not going back to this clinic.

personable and takes the time to get to know patients so i can see why so many people think he is great. Spends too much time talking about his own personal issues or counselling on weight loss and diet but lacks credibility as he clearly does not walk the talk. VERY disrespectiful of the patient's I have tried booking at all different times and days. Nothing works. cancels short notice. ALWAYS 2-3+ hours behind. even when i book the first appt of the day he is more than an hour late. sweat pants and a t-shirt were common dress. If i did not know better i would NEVER think he was a Dr if i saw him on the street. Overall grossly unprofessional and down right disgusting. a discredit to the PROFESSION. The only thing in his favour is his wonderful staff ... i can't figure why they stay with him given all the abuse they take for his tardiness. Dr K ... you are Fired!!

How can one handle complex issues surrounding medicine and health care when an appointment schedule is beyond your abilities. Unacceptable wait, and when I questioned it, I feel I was met with arrogance. I feel this guy thinks he's above everyone else and displays a bad attitude towards people. I feel this is only about the money, not care. Why would one put their care in a person who's abilities are less than required to handle a basic daytimer?

This is a doctor who should NOT be practicing! Never mind the fact that he is always 3 plus hours behind...he prescribes pills without monitoring the pt. His specialty is prescriptions! He simply wants to move you out the door as quickly as he can but NOT until after you've heard about his divorce, his child custody battle AND his workout regimen at the gym. I am personally going to be writing the the college of physicians and surgeons about this totally unprofessional and uncaring "doctor".
