Ratings for Dr. A.D. Graham
Very kind man, this test was not brutal, I almost cancelled after reading such awful things online. Glad I went, I have done answers now and it's a shame that people have written negative comments about dr. Graham. I thought he was very nice, excellent bedside manner.
Does not listen, has poor bedside manner and his examination was poor. Barely touched me! I finally went to go see a chiropractor who was able to find the area in my back that was locked up and after a few treatments there was a big difference.
Dr.Graham performed an EMG and will send report to my Family Physician. I was totally in a panic because of what I read on Internet about the test - how painful it is. The Dr. was very gentle, explained before every little "jolt" ... I don't know if all EMGs are the same, but I was grateful to have this mild mannered man administer it with minimum of discomfort. I only put four stars for helpfulness and knowledge because I have no way of knowing his expertise etc. I had thought I would have more discussion over my condition, but I think with the number of people he has to see, time is limited. I took a file of my own notes in case he wanted to see, but I didn't realize this was basically the test only with a couple of questions.; whereas I thought maybe I could explain more, but he knows what he needs to know, I would think. I feel for those who have not had a good experience and I also don't understand why an EMG test cannot be done at a person's local hospital - and "then" referred to Dr.Graham if problems...... anyway, to all who have pain as I do, and worse, - let's hope that there is some relief, if not cure, for us in the future. The receptionist was extremely pleasant, but I forget her name, if it is same person each time.
After reading the other comments I was concerned about my visit to Dr. Graham, but for me it was a great experience. The staff were very nice, my appointment almost started on time, and Dr. Graham was kind and patient and answered all my questions.
This is the classic example of a "company" WSIB doctor. He does not listen, see's you for 5-10 minutes while the physio does all the testing. Recommendation made are not realistic, I've had chronic back pain for over a year and he says the prognosis is good and all will be well with 4-6 weeks of exercise. I did my exercises, no relief or change. Typical company Dr, WSIB paying his bills and tellin' them I'm alright when I'm not.
