I can't believe anyone would rate Dr.Haaland anything but excellent. Yes,there is a long wait time but that is because he takes time with each patient. He listens and is a very caring doctor. He has been one of the best doctors I have ever had. You are warned in advance to bring a good book. I have a chronic condition and he has gone way beyond to try and find help fpr me! I have waited much longer in other specialist offices!

What shocks me about reading other ratings about this doctor and his staff that ANYONE would rate this man or his staff, anything higher than a 1! Right from the time you enter his office, his staff are rude and discourteous. The wait time is totally outrageous. I don't know how this man ever became a doctor! He is more interested in watching, and socializing, with his cute little office assistants than he is in his patients. He is very unprofessional and like another person, who has rated him on this site, states....his office is nothing more than an OHIP turn-style to print money! He is a total rip-off for the tax--payers and Kathleen Wynne should be held responsible for this joke of a doctor, and others like him, who are getting paid the kind of money that they make....but couldn't care less about their patients. He is the most unprofessional, unknowledgeable, ignorant, money-sucking so-called doctor I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. This guy is a total clown! He should get a job in a circus! How did this guy every get a licence to practice?????

The negative comments about Dr Haaland are exact. I found my experience with him and his office staff exasperating a conveyor belt specialist. Wait time was atrocious. As far as the experience being helpful I would have to say definitely not got more information from the internet.

I went there cynical and left feeling respected and validated for my chronic pain. (Likely, we all know here what a personal psychological burden chronic pain is). I've certainly waited much longer than an hour or two to see a specialist in the past. Their literature I got in the mail said to expect to spend approximately 3 hours there. I got a clear diagnosis and requisitions for many other relevant tests. I felt he was one of the more thorough specialists I have ever seen, and unfortunately I have seen more than my share. I received some immediate medical intervention at my appointment to help with inflammation and pain. I found his staff to be friendly and concerned. I am feeling hopeful that the long-term medication prescribed is going to improve and save the function of my hands to the point of someday enjoying shopping again ...dang those hangers and heavy clothes on them ;-)

I was referred here by my doctor in North Bay for some allergy testing. Appointment was scheduled for 3:15 and didn't get out of the waiting room till 4:30. When the allergy testing began it was not the doctor who did it but one of his employees. She explained very little about the process, couldn't answer my questions nor did she care to TRY and find an answer. After getting my results I waited another 25 minutes to see the "doctor"; when he came in we talked for less than 10 minutes. Once I explained that I wasn't looking for any prescriptions the conversation was quickly killed and I felt as though he had no interest in even being there. I asked if my allergies could be effecting my skin (I have been having skin issues for the past year or so) and once again they had no idea how to answer my question. The kicker was right in front of me he started Googling questions and stated to Cassandra, the employee "see how easy this is" NOW, I am trying to get in contact with the office to get a signature for a Travel Grant so I can be reimbursed for this wasted day - I've called 5 times and have yet to have someone pick up the phone and I can't leave a message because their answering box is full. Over all a very frustrating experience and next time someone refers you here... Save the time and google yourself.

I waited hours, he tried to push me out in a few minutes....I was the last one there and I guess he had better things to do~at least that's how he makes you feel. The only thing I found helpful is that he told me the drug aclasta lasted six years with each infusion...now I'm finding that this may not be the truth either!!! whatever...he acts like he's Mr. Wonderful but the truth is, he's not even Mr. Half way there!

The staff are wonderful, quite informative. However, you have to wait hours to be seen. The majority of us in the waiting area had driven hours to be seen. Love the new office space.
