Dr. Shain Kara-Shariff's Ratings
I've been with Dr Kara for over 25 years and like an earlier poster, she was so friendly, concerned and patient early on in her career. Now that her practice has grown beyond the limits of what even she can handle, everything has gone downhill. The staff can be rude, but that comes from the top! They get treated badly by Dr. Kara too. She has cut staff at the front to save money. She NEVER refills prescriptions by fax or phone. You HAVE to go in and see her. And now there are signs in every room "We can only address TWO issues per visit". Unbelievable!
Dr. Kara is a good doctor and I have been coming to her for years. I do not understand her office operation. She takes appointments and walk-ins and even if you have an appointment you can wait 2-3 hours. They may bring you in a room and you sit for another hour. Why bother with walk-ins when she could run a successful practice with booked appointments? Who has time to wait 3 hours for an appointment? It is rude and disrespectful to de-value people's time in this way. Dr. Kara should run appointments only, it would be a lot more efficient for everyone and maybe then her front line staff would be professional and civil.
I've been a patient of Dr. Kara's through my teenage and now adult years. She's helped me through some serious medical issues, and is always patient and thorough. Yes, wait times are long, but this is because she's always double booked and accepts walk ins. The staff is totally overworked, that is obvious, but has always been great to me.
I can only imagine that the people who have rated below feel that they are entitled to the free services they receive by hard working doctors such as Dr. Kara. This doctor is amazing. She has a big heart and she is extremely knowledgeable. Yes, the wait times are long, but that is only because everyone in Markham wants to see Dr. Kara. I have seen many people be rude and yell at the staff- totally unnecessary. I would highly recommend Dr. Kara. She is a wonderful person and an amazing doctor.
The staff at this clinic sucks, super rude n disrespectful. They don't care about anything, if treat them with coffee, they'll look after you, quite openly. Waste of time. Kara Shariff is amazing
Dr Kara has been my family physician for 25 years. Yes, the wait time is long to see her BUT she is well worth the wait. She is extremely knowledgable, will refer to specialists and is very caring. She has helped my family and been my children's doctor since their birth and watched them grow into young adults with great care. These comments about Dr Kara and her staff are said with love and respect. My children think Miss. Mary and Miss Marie are like friends as they know my children's names without looking at a file. The same goes for Carolyn and Gail, Shirley Anne...they are absolutely wonderful. We now drive in from Cobourg to see Dr. Kara, her professional diagnosis surpasses others in her field. We highly recommend her and her team. The reason why her wait time is long, is because everybody wants to see her. That speaks volumes for her as a physician and human being.
