Ratings for Dr. Adrian Fanat
Dr. Fanat is well intention but lacks the confidence to support his patients well when complicated health cases come across his desk. He known for frequently provides referrals rather than diagnose his patients himself. Unfortunately when he does diagnose he doesn't always get it right yet and this can be problematic for his patients. In one day I heard of 4 patients who wanted to switch but couldn't due to doctor shortages.
Dr Fanat has been my family doctor for a long time. He is always open to alternatives to prescription drugs, which is rare in a MD, as long as they are proven to work. He is constantly frustrated by the system that only allows him to charge for one issue per visit, but he cares enough about his patients that he will address more than one issue per visit. A note about Christine, his MOA. I don't know who the idiot was who said she is rude, lazy and disorganized. Nothing could be farther from the truth! She doesn't always answer the phone when it rings because she is the only person available and she is sometimes doing other things. She always gets back to me as soon as she gets my message and what more can a person ask.
Dr. Fanat is only working in his office 1/2 days and has another medical position elsewhere. This makes the office a bit overloaded. But Dr. Fanat is always worth the wait. He is kind, compassionate, knowledgable and very humble. He is very easy to talk to and does not judge. Best doctor I have ever had. So glad he is younger than me so he will not be retiring for a while. :)
Dr. Fanat is a very special doctor! One is assured of his interest in his patient. He is kind, considerate and nothing is too much trouble. I have been his patient for a long while and feel blessed to have him. Another plus is Christine his receptionist. A most efficient, caring person. Nothing is too much trouble. Works under a lot of pressure, is never rude. Christine answers phone calls and if no one is available to take the call will keep phoning until the message is received. We are all fortunate, including Dr Fanat, to have her. Good job Christine, what would we do without you!!
Dr. Fanat is a very caring Doctor. Not only is he knowledgeable, but takes his time with his patients. This usually explains why he is not always punctual with his appointments. Even though his hours are reduced, his MOA, Christine, is quite good at trying to assist all his patients within his time frame. The BC medical system leaves most MD's frustrated, but Doctor Fanat does his very best with the resources he is given. I highly recommend him !
since changing the office hours the wait time is very minimal.., Dr Fanat and Christine provide great service. If you to leave a message if they are busy they get back to you ASAP,,,,He has provided much needed help in times of stress,,,,, Thanx
