Ratings for Dr. S Vaish
It is hard to rate his knowledge because he didn't ask any questions about the injury nor did he palpate the area, the only thing he asked us is if we had coverage because the medication he was prescribing was expensive. He then told us to come back in a couple days. I took my daughter elsewhere and it turns out she has abscess and while penicillin was required there are a bunch of other things we could do to help it heal. It would have been nice if Dr. Vaish had taken the time to talk to us about what it was, how it happens and what we can do to help heal it (like the other doctor) instead of immediately prescribing antibiotics.
I have been very pleased with Dr. Vaish's service as our family doctor. He listens well, arranges for follow up, and makes detailed inquiries during and after treatment to ensure that conditions are fully resolved. He participates as a training doctor, and the interns I have met in his office have likewise always been highly professional, compassionate, and thorough. We had difficulty finding an available family doctor in Abbotsford, and couldn't be happier having ended up with Dr. Vaish.
I have seen for last 3 yrs with my teenage kids and he not only helped my girls get out of depression but also worked to ensure that they get the proper counselling. he has helped them more than I can express.. I can tell you all u need to do is just sit in the waiting room for 10 minutes and feel the vibe of the office nd talk to other patients..
Sadly, my experience is like a lot of the other reviewers. I'm a nurse and I'm really wondering about his man's credentials too, and all the positive reviews look like they were written by himself or some paid for reviewer. My son had a textbook case of athlete's foot that wasn't responding to OTC treatment due to a fungal allergy. Saurabh Vaish prescribed antibiotics and a steroid cream, but no anti-fungal, which I know will only worsen the condition. When I questioned him about this, his overall demeanour became extremely rude and he abruptly got up and left. I ended up taking my son to a walk-in clinic to get a correct script. I would recommend avoiding this "doctor" as he doesn't seem to know how to treat a minor condition.
I have been a patient of his for a few years now. My personal experience with him is always bad. He never actually listens to what I am saying, he would rather write a prescription before even touching you or giving you his time of day. He over prescribes. He is a prescription pad doctor who must get nice push backs from the drug companies he works with. I once asked to be referred to a dietitian as I had trouble keeping weight on and wanted a proper diet plan he refused and prescribed me anti-depressants. Every tiime I go in there I leave on the verge of tears if not full blown. He refuses to listen to your concerns, pushes you out of the office with a prescription in hand ALWAYS. He is useless and I will be filing a complaint against him. He simply is not a good doctor.
