Ratings for Dr. Richard W. Colwill
Dr. Colwill saw me three or four times during late Summer-Autumn of 2015 when I was going through a cryptogenic liver failure. He was very prompt and professional in his assessment of my condition and sent me to liver people at Toronto General, who saved me my.
I am seeing him for low iron level since more than one year and at least 4 times so far. But no diagnosis and no solution so far. In the first visit he asked to take iron pills which I did. But it didn't change the iron level. Since then I see him every 3 months. I go with blood test report and come back with a comment "see you after 3 months". He never spends more than 5 minutes with any patient, but always running late. I don't understand how many patients does he see in a day. Useless. I am going to change the doctor now. What a waste of time!
Very knowledgeable, kind and compassionate doctor. I always felt safe and cared for because he always took the time to answer every question or address all of our concerns. I truly know that he has done his best with regards to my treatment as a patient. I would recommend this gentleman/doctor to anyone who needs an Oncologist
What started out as a seemingly nice, kind doctor turned into a useless doctor. Ignoring the patients physical complaints and brushing them off, then a more serious problem crops up and the cancer had spread, skirting the issues and not following up on his patient made for a very distressing time. Very unhappy!!!!
5 years after being diagnosed with melanoma, Dr. Colwill told me I was okay, only to have the cancer return two weeks after my final visit with Dr. Colwill. This resulted in another 5 years of seeing another oncologist which included interferon treatment for 1 year.
it takes forever to get an appointment with him (6 months) but he is a very smart doctor. once i had my first visit and started treatment that made me sick, he made time to see me the same day that i called with symptoms. he is very considerate, kind and spares me unnecessary medical tests. if i ever get cancer this is the oncologist i want. i trust his good judgment and obvious intelligence.
