Ratings for Dr. Larissa Kasianik
This doctor does not listen at all, and makes terrible decisions. I told her I was going through a rough time in my life due to family circumstances, and told her I had anxiety. I told her that I think about it while driving. By the end she wrote a letter to the MOT to suspend my license so that I can no longer drive because she thinks I'm distracted while driving. I have appealed this (Loooong process) and won and I can finally drive again. She made my life miserable in the mean time. I am now going to college of physicians to make a complaint. I hope they take her license to practice away. What an idiot that does not think about how she's impacting people's lives.
Dr Kasianik is fantastic. She is thorough and very knowledgeable. She will order diagnostic imaging and testing to ensure that all issues are identified, and refers to specialists when necessary. She genuinely seems to care about her patients and their well-being and is wonderful with children and babies as well as with adults. Although she is often very busy and hurrying from patient to patient, I always feel that she listens and doesn't rush through my exams.
Always listens to my concerns and takes them seriously. Will refer you to a specialist if required. Kind and always takes the time to make sure you understand what she is saying. Even makes personal calls to the house herself to follow-up. Best Doctor I have ever had.
Always in a hurry, we call her Tornado Kasianik because she is in and out and gone before you can ask any questions. Worries more about staying on time rather than dealing with her patients. Was good for referring to specialists but other than that we do not enjoy her services . She even told us not to go to another doctor because she will get charged a fee if we do (which is true). But she is so hard to get an appointment with sometimes. Also, she told us not to come and see her with more than 2 things that might be wrong !! One visit she told my wife one thing when my wife suggested what could be wrong with her and she disagreed with my wife. A few months later she said the exact same thing my wife had said before that she had disagreed with her on. Is so hard to get a doctor in Kincardine, not sure what we will do.
I have been seeing Dr. K since she first came to Kincardine and I find her to be very knowledgeable and very thorough. She is kind and gentle when working with my daughter but more to the point with me. She has appropriately expressed sympathy and empathy yet reads you the riot act when she needs to. Of course her punctuality is hit or miss but I fully expect that from any physician and I prepare for it. I have found them to be a bit lax on returning test results so make sure to follow up yourself.
Dr Kasianik provides my family exceptional care! She is very thorough and does not jump to an immediate diagnosis until she has all the facts. She gives you a black or white picture of what you need to do to lead a healthy life. She is truly passionate about what she does and we are very lucky to have her in our community.
My name is Tammy Morris i have had this Doctor for about 4 years. This doctor is amazing if it were not for my very first visit and her knowledge i would have been really ill from cancer. Doctor Kasianik diagnosed me with cancer she is very kind and has awesome bedside manner. I guess she likes who she likes :)
Horrible doctor. Like everyone else is saying on here she doesn't listen or spend time with her patients. This is my first pregnancy and I can't wait to move onto another doctor. I think she spends more time looking at her computer then examining her patients. She is very confused as to what tests a pregnant person should do and it seems she sends you to the wrong places (pharmacy instead of just the hospital) and doubles up on the blood tests that you did a few weeks ago- waste of time. No follow up what so ever by the staff and her hours are so limited. They won't even return your calls if you leave a message. Thank goodness this pregnancy has gone smooth and I only had to waste my time waiting for her.
Absolutely horrible doctor and here is why: I have a very rare and very serious condition that if I happened to have a reaction, it could kill me within 15 minutes, and she believes it's all in my head. The last time I saw her, I tried explaining my condition and she kept cutting me off, and went on a long rant about how it's just anxiety. She ended her rant by showing me her list of other patients (isn't that supposed to be confidential?) and said, "As you can see I have other patients to attend to." - And then she left. I was there for a check up and she didn't even look at me - I waited 2 hours to spend 5 minutes being told, "You're crazy." More reasons include I always had to wait at least an hour; when I went to Africa she put me on a medication that makes you super sensitive to the sun; I can't understand her; she's lazy; she would never give me test results back; and she would refer me to specialists without my knowledge. But at least her staff are nice.
