Ratings for Dr. Ambrose Fung
Dr. Fung is an excellent gp. I moved from Toronto area and the thought of loosing him as a physician saddens me deeply.He has been my physician for over 20 years and is very thorough warm kind and compassionate. He is a wonderful smart man who is extremely competent and dedicated.
As my doctor for over twenty years I have found him in all ways excellent. As a woman that can't subdue her sense of humour he will often laugh with me: when he's not sure if he 'should' laugh or not his face goes quite red and he eventually breaks down when I tease him. When he hears me say something he thinks medically important his face changes and I see an intense listening attention. He will listen for as long as I need to talk. That's something I never had with my previous Albany Clinic doctor. Quite the reverse. I trust my life to him knowing that no doctor can know everything, even all about various specialists, but I know I have the best possible GP
I agree with ALL the comments dated 6/21/11. I hope Dr Fung finds better specialists to refer his patients to than the ones @ Albany. I've visited 2 Specialists @ Albany that weren't thorough enough. The specialists that work out of the Coxwell hospital have been better. A GP is only as good as his referrals as some medical diagnosis are out of a GP's range and patients deserve a timely and accurate diagnosis. Because the diagnosis has taken over a year, I have had to rate helpfulness low.
Very good bedside manner; listens, is kind, intelligent, considerate, has a sense of humour, and is free of the "medical arrogance" that many suffer from. He's restricted a bit in that any referrals are to specialists in the same clinic, who may or may not be good.
Dr. Fung has a superb consultation manner. He is calm, focussed, and genuinely interested. Most important, when he comes up against a symptom or situation that doesn't fall under the umbrella of "usual suspects" he will go a step further and DIG for the information necessary. My definition of a great doctor isn't one who knows everything (or thinks he does) it is one who will find out anything he needs to know to take care of my health.
