All he cares about is billing as much as possible. Does not care about any concerns and will write whatever prescription you want as quickly as possible than leave to move onto the next patient. Go to College Square for real medical advice as a walk in patient.

I went for a cough and was prescribed a strong antibiotic without any diagnosis. After finishing my antibiotics the cough came back so he prescribed a second antibiotic. My cough issue was never resolved. He performed a physical exam without washing his hands or wearing gloves. Very Unsanitary. Will never go back again.

This doctor is TERRIBLE. You have 5 minutes with him no matter what issue you are discussing. Unless he is able to BILL the OHIP for a treatment...he will leave the office. He is all about the MONEY. MD for this guy stands for "Money Doctor". This doctor is the reason the medical system is failing, he should not be allowed to practice medicine. I understand he relocated from Quebec to Ontario because he was able to make more money. I would STRONGLY suggest waiting in the emergency room for 6 hours before spending 1 hour waiting for this guy. Why isn't the College of Physicians and Surgeons self-regulating and protecting the interests of patients better? It is time for all of us to stand up and remove these doctors who are only concerned about money - and NOT PATIENT CARE.

Great Doctor, Had a hard time at first to understand him, after awhile you catch on to what he is saying , He has always been in a good mood with me. It is straight to the point in and out . That's the way it should be .

I was a walk-in for a prenatal appointment because I've just moved to ON from BC and don't have a family doctor here. They charge $60/appt for out of province cards, cash only (but the clinic at College Square only charges $40). It was 1.5 h wait which is expected for walk-in. He had absolutely no idea what he was doing, didn't understand anything I was talking about (he asked what the ultrasound result from my MISCARRIAGE was, thinking I was still pregnant from that PREVIOUS pregnancy). He printed out all my bloodwork forms with the WRONG patient name, then told me it was an accident because that woman's period was also late (given out patient info wth???) They faxed my u/s req off and I never got a call for an appointment, so I called them to follow up and they said "sometimes it takes a long time." I told the receptionist the u/s needs to be done by Fri (it was Tues) and she said to call back on Fri if I didn't have an appointment yet! So I said fine, I'll call back, and she said she would call the u/s place for me. On Fri, I called back, and she gave me the number for me to call myself (why didn't she just do this the first time???) So I called and they said they don't take calls from patients, only doctors. So I called her back and told her this and SHE TOLD ME TO CALL THE NUMBER AGAIN. I finally convinced her to call for me and she agreed but then hung up rudely. I still haven't heard back about my u/s and the last day I could get it was four days ago.

I saw dr. Alhoussan when I was looking for a doctor to treat my unexplained ongoing cough, he was the only doctor who treated me after 3 years of suffering, since then he became our favorite for me and my ENTIRE FAMILY, he is very knowledgable, smart, polite and very very kind, A LOT of people who see him don't bother to come here write on their good experience thats why it is not fair for an excellent doctor like him to have this rating he deserves 10 stars not only five. Thank you Dr. Alhoussan for taking care of us, you are THE BEST. Frances, V. N

This doctor is extremely rude. He doesn't want his patients to use their own brains. If we express any concerns, he takes personally amd takes as an insult. He literally told us to leave his office and never to see him again !

I had been trying to find a doctor in Ottawa for a while now since my family doctor left the city, and after reading a lot of the negative comments about Dr. Alhoussan, I decided to check his clinic out just to see if all these complaints were true. Plus, I couldn't find anyone closer to me than his clinic, so I thought what the heck, I'll give him a try. And I was... Pleasantly surprised. The wait time was about 40 minutes, which made sense since I was a walk-in patient. The receptionist was very kind and helpful. I went in to see the doctor, and he was clear and concise and answered every question I asked him. Many of the complaints say that he was rude and wanted to get rid of you as soon as possible, but I didn't see it that way. If you're looking for a doctor to have small talk with, this is NOT the doctor for you. But if you walk in, tell him your symptoms straight up and don't waste his time with small talk and assumptions you found over Google, he gives you a straight up answer and genuine help. I came in for a rash on my stomach and leg pain. He gave me ointment for my rash, told me to wait the pain out, an sent me on my way. Miraculously, the pain WENT AWAY with time, and the ointment worked. He didn't tell me to wait it out because he isn't informed, he told me so because I guess that time was all it needed. We didn't have a chit chat about the weather or our favourite restaurant, because he's a doctor people, not a friend, this isn't about chit chat. He sent me on my way and it worked, that's all I gotta say. He's a quick doctor but he's straightforward, and I like that. If you're looking for a doctor who's actually a doctor and who doesn't like to waste his time with small talk before getting to the point, this is the doctor for you. He's extremely intelligent and he knows his stuff. I came to see him many more times after the first and I've never been dissapointed. He doesn't like small talk and suggestions on treatment because at the end of the day, he's the doctor and I'm not. That's all I gotta say. Extremely impressed and I recommend him to everybody who asks.

Horrible experience, poor knowledge of medicine, unsanitary place, I did not see him wash his hands not even once, couldn't even give me a diagnosis, he even hinted to see another doctor because he didn't know the cause of a persistent caugh I have been suffering for weeks now...I took his advise and went to a real Doctor and she prescribe me something simple and over the counter. I think that Walid Alhoussan is a fake and impostor doctor which I wouldn't trust my health to...
