Ratings for Dr. Maha Dutil
Dr. Dutil has been my dermatologist for a number of years. I am virtually covered in nevi (more than 200 moles) and she has a tough task keeping track of all of them. She is brief and to the point. Her aim is to diagnose what needs to be done and get on with the job of treating her patient. Bear in mind she works in a public health system and has thousands of us needing her attention. Highly competent dermatologist.
She is an amazing dermatologist I have ever seen. It is worth it if you wait 6 months to see her. It is also very much worth it tolerating the staff's attitude to see her. After 6 months of waiting you don't need long sessions with her as she is very quick and accurate in her diagnosis. She is perfect doctor, very considerate, humble, knowledgable and polite. I recommend her very much to you and believe me it is worth the wait!!!!
I've have been seeing Dr Dutil for a few years now for on going Melanoma check ups. She's quick but thorough. It takes 3 - 6 months to book an appointment with her though. And you better have all your questions ready because she will only spend 5 minutes at most with you...and this is after waiting at least an hour - I've waited up to 3 before. Like I said after waiting 6 months for an appointment I suck it up and wait. Her staff is awful. When you remind them you're still there waiting they almost have joy in telling you to continue to wait. Once I was called at 9 AM and asked to come in early for my 11 AM appointment. I showed up at 10 AM only to wait until noon to see the Doctor. The admin support were practically giddy with glee telling me to continue to wait. I'm not sure how the doctor can get away with continuing to accept patients if she obviously doesn't have time to see the patients she does have. If it wasn't so hard to get a referral to someone else I would. And at this point she has all my history so I'm sort of stuck. But if you have the choice - SEE SOMEONE ELSE.
Dr Dutil is the best dermatologist I have seen and I have suffered from a rare chronic skin condition for the past 20 years. She is helpful, knowledgeable and keeps up to date with research. Her bedside manner is friendly, she is proactive with treatments and ordering tests. The only doctor who doesn't just throw antibiotics at my problems.
I went in with very low expectations after reading all the reviews. So I was pleasantly suprised with Dr Dutil. She was friendly enough and quickly diagnosed me and follow through with treatment options. I was in and out in less than 30 mins. I think the key is to let her do her job instead of suggesting what she should do. I found her efficient and resourceful.
While she seems well versed in procedures, is very knowledgeable and overall seems to know her stuff, I was incredibly taken aback with how atrocious her manners are. Had I been more self conscious with my skin concerns this would have been a horrible experience (here's your be warning). She is very dry, short and abrupt with you and not inclined to taking questions, but is flat out rude in her response when you ask for her professional opinion on your skin issue she'd just spent the last while investigating. The appointment happened an hour after it was scheduled and she appeared rushed the whole time.
