Ratings for Dr. Anca Facy
An amazing diagnostician. I have been seeing her since she opened her practice in Toronto. She sees my son as well and he trusts her- as do I. I understand about her husband but who really cares. Be polite to him and tolerant. She is who you want to see anyway. I trust her implicitly. She refers when other doctors don't. We have a great relationship- talk about our kids etc. Make an effort to get to know her- she is very warm and incredibly kind
Dr Facy is very "careful" (or rather stingy) about giving referrals to specialists or testing and dismisses any complains that are not life-threatening. Like others have said, her husband is absolutely unfit for the receptionist job. He is miserable in what he is doing, and causes a lot of anxiety for himself and the patients. She really needs to put him on meds. She seems to be taking more days off than she works. The office is always closed. She is on vacation all the time, and almost every Friday, with no back up. Other than that she is a good doctor.
I know doctor Facy for five years. Yes, she is always busy, helping her patients in a busy downtown area of Toronto. She IS a great doctor - very knowledgeable, with good giagnostic skills, very patient. And I disagree with the other reviews that she spends not enough time with her patients. That’s why the most of her time she is busy - she is with the patient every minute of her time. I never left her thinking that she didn’t do for me what she could. Special thanks goes to her assistant- Mr.Facy! Very intelligent person, who always listens to you and calls back with some solution. With these people I know that I am not lonely, that I am in good hands and will always get help. My great respect and Thanks for both - Missis Facy and Mister Facy!
I left Dr. Facy years ago and haven't looked back. She was constantly double booked, meaning wait times up to 1 hour with a scheduled appointment. Her receptionists in the past were ok, but more recently her husband who fills in would raise his voice on the phone to patients, "HUH? WHAT?" It was uncomfortable in the waiting room, and on the other end of the phone. Generally Dr. Facy would rush through appointments, and if I tried addressing ongoing concerns they were brushed off as nothing. After switching doctors, I got my issue addressed professionally and with empathy, and have been treated well since. If I was still with Dr. Facy I would be miserable.
I have been going to Dr Facy for over a decade now and can in all honesty say she is a great doctor, especially for women's health related issues. Her knowledge and experience in women's health is top to none. While she may not be the warmest and fuzziest of doctors, she's straight forward and very science based, which I as a patient do want more alternatives to looking at my overall health. But she's open to listening, however will always go back to her "data." Yes her office is quirky in that her husband helps her manage her appointments, but what's the big deal really? I mean you're ultimately seeing her and not him. If you're nice to him he's ok, but obviously if you are being rude or irritated then you prob won't get the best service. Looking past her front desk issues - if you want to build a relationship, especially as a woman, with a doctor who will look out for your and your health, then I highly recommend Dr Facy. If you are looking for excellent customer service and a fluffy doctor, then perhaps not.
Dr. Facy is very knowlegable and efficient. Having her husband at the front desk is TERRIBLE. He lacks people skills, it is hard to have a conversation with him and makes you feel like he is only doing you a favor. He can be the only reason I could consider looking for another family Dr.
