Ratings for Dr. Mervat Wasef
I do not mind Dr Wasef but understand the negative comments in the others ratings and would agree with many of them but I have become accustomed to dealing with her. I will say that her staff are very unprofessional, rude, dismissive and extremely under-trained on how to deal with the public in the health care sector. The worst has to be the office manager April who does not care at all what mental, physical or emotion state the patient may be in when she berates them or belittles them over the phone. She is in a position of power and trust and should be more conscientious and caring of the patients she is entrusted to help. Horrific office manager.
Dr. Wasef has mostly been useless in treating or preventing anything. She just says "don't worry about it" to almost everything I have been to her for. I wouldn't be taking time off work and be going to my family doctor if i didn't have worries. She has rolled her eyes and given me judgemental looks. Moreover, I booked my routine checkup appointment with her 2 months well in advance because of my time limitations, but as usual, it got cancelled again! Clearly, she doesn't think my time or thoughts or problems are valuable and only sees me to make money. Would not recommend her for a family doctor.
Had an appt booked for 12:30, I get there and everyone is on lunch from 12-1. How was I booked for a 12:30 appt? I explained by issue with my baby, which I was told I should have told her sooner, she referred me to a Pediatrition. No help, no information on what’s going on with my baby or any suggestions for a interim relief/treatment. If she’s not going to see or treat young babies, why accept as a patient?
Worst doctor I have ever seen. Horrible bedside manner. She makes comments about things that are totally illrelevant to the reason you showed up for and acts like you are a total inconvenience to her. She rolls her eyes, scoffs and downright makes you feel awful. I saw her twice and I never went back. Do not even give her a chance. She clearly has no passion about her job or else she’s been in it too long and doesn’t care about people’s feelings.
Not accommodating for long term prescriptions (ensuring you come back every 2 months for some easy cash for her). Actually rolled her eyes at my claim that I was having specific reoccurring pain, would not add B12, CBC, or enzymes to my ferritin draw despite having history of B12 deficiency and symptoms. She is always on time because she does not spend any time or care on patients. AVOID at all costs.
I have been with Dr. Wasef for around 5 years now and I cannot believe I haven’t tried to find another family doctor sooner. The clinic in which she is a part of is extremely unorganized and whenever you try to call the office you usually can’t get through and when you do the receptionists are rude and usually hang up on you.Dr. Wasef also doesn’t give long term prescription refills which makes you have to go in every other month to get a refill which is completely unnecessary and time consuming. She has terrible bedside manner and has dismissed any concernes that I had. I made the mistake of bringing my newborn child there to see her until I found a pediatrician and she had the audacity to accuse me of dropping my child on his head. I really think something should be done in regards to her dismissive and accusing nature and if you have the choice to see Dr. Wasef I HIGHLY advise against it. You’re better off going anywhere else.
Every time I have gone in to see Dr Wasef about an illness or irregularity in my body, she told me it wasn't her area of expertise. She is extremely disrespectful and condescending. I really disliked how she would make me come in every month to get my birth control prescription; and got upset at me and argued when I asked her to give me refills as my schedule does not allow for monthly doctors visits when I am otherwise well. Worst doctor I have ever seen, can't believe all the positive reviews i see
