Ratings for Dr. A Abu Dieh
Dr Abu Dieh has been my GP since 2010 and I find him to be a very good physician. He has always taken the time to ask me how I have been doing, on a personal level, since my last visit. I would recommend him to any one looking for a GP in the Kanata area.
Told me everything I took to him was PTSD or fibromyalgia. Both of which are true, but which do not account for a bone sticking out of my sternum and unremitting diarrhea. He hates that I smoke pot, which is medically prescribed by my PTSD doctor. I served in the Gulf war, but it makes no difference to him. I suspect he is brusque, always seems too busy to deal with patients' issues, and projects attitude so as to intimidate, because he is actually unskilled and is trying to cover up.
Staff never answer the phone. They are cold and rude. Doctor is somewhat knowledgeable but he is never available, tries to rush appointments, and gets visibly agitated if you question any of his recommendations. In the beginning things seem great, but after a while everything gets worse when dealing with him.
So so surprised to read other reviews....he's the best doctor I've ever had.....lost my previous doctor (after 40 yrs) to retirement and quickly went through 3 other docs before I found this one,...I've never felt rushed ....he always asks what's going on in my life...very knowing of utd info...no complaints...only praise....as for the comments about his receptionist, again surprised....I find her really nice
This person is a horrendous doctor to have andto be providing healthcare in the 2017 standards. He has a very intimidating vibe to him that he articulates the moment he enters the room, which is a horrible quality for a doctor to have. Dr. Abu always seems pressed for time, which makes you very uncomfortable when asking you to explain your health issues to him. It's difficult enough to get scheduled with him, and when you finally get to see him, his stale attitude, unapproachability and rush mentality makes it very hard for you to address all the problems you wanted to talk to him about. He is the epitome of a bad family physician, and certainly isn't the right doctor to go for mental health concerns, and does not offer you a comprehensive approach to your problems. Terrible doctor.
Went to see Dr. Dieh about conditions that were disconcerting to me. Instead of of providing explainations of the conditions, he was dismissive and made me feel like I shouldn't have brought the issues to his attention in the first place. I will not go back to him again.
Horrible experience with this doctor, dismissed everything I had to say. Found another GP who listened and did proper tests and found out I have remitting MS... When complained to dr anwar about symptoms I was told I had ibs and sciatic nerve pain.... I had optic neuritis this year, and was asked if I had any other neurological symptoms.. When I told the doctor no just that I have ibs and sciatica she was more than shocked. Dr anwar is also so moody, nice one appt, cold the next. The nurse also has an attitude. Just an unpleasant experience.
