Ratings for Dr. Laith Dinkha Shimon
Very caring Doctor and very pleasant to deal with; however, I went to see him for concussion and he knew very little about them , he was unaware that you do not work thru symptoms as it can make it worse and permanent (learned that the hard way and found out you don't once I saw specialist in Halifax and thru our nation brain injury society), also he was unaware of mid line shift disorder (I was closing one eyeball and tilting head to try to read and couldn't walk without staring ground getting dizzy) and he was unaware of post traumatic vision disorder.... Just recommended protection glasses for computer to help.....would not recommend him for concussions, if he had known these things, it may have saved me so much pain and increased my r covert so quick! And I would have been only walking crooked for maybe 3 months instead of 13 months (when I finally got diagnosed properly).
Dr. Shimon has been my specialist for a year and I cannot say enough good things about him. He is pragmatic and honest without giving up hope. He listens and answers questions without judgement. He will make the time for a callback or quick visit to ambulatory care if anything unusual happens with my treatments. It can be hard to get through to his office and I haven't always received a callback, but I just call again and always get through eventually.
I was told I was suffering with arthritis in my neck brushed off and when I told him my symptoms it wasn't a big deal then he turns around gives me a nerve block my vision went funny and went back to see him he said its arthritis and deal that was the last time I seen him and its 2 years of suffering and my recent mri I have degereate disc and multiple nerve and cord impinchments ! good luck with this man
I think this man is interested in having his ego stroked by the people of Cape Breton. When he finally saw my husband, his response was, I don't know what this is, but I want to video tape this & share it with my colleagues & I will get back to you. That was 3 years ago & trust me I followed up with the office only to be told my husband was not his patient. Maybe he helps others, but I found him to be rude, & unprofessional in the extreme.
