Ratings for Dr. Abdel-Rahman Lawendy
I was in an extremely serious car accident. Dr Lawendy and his team did the surgery in trauma and the subsequent surgeries on my legs. Because of the his knowledge and expertise I am able to walk again. Is he busy? Absolutely! Is it worth the wait? Again, absolutely! Kind, personable and professional.
Dr. Lawendy treated me after a very bad accident. I was hit by a car while on my bike. He treated my pelvis, femur and tibia. The first physician who saw me said I would never walk again. I am walking without assistance. He is caring and skillful hi s staff are wonderful
Had surgery on my left ankle. Hardware was to be removed. I am allergic to staples and went threw all the paper work to insure i didn't get them . i was to get stitches and glue..... After a week and a half of burning and throbbing pain i decided to have a look at my ankle with the help of my husband..... I have staples and lots of them.... I contacted the staff and they said they didn't know how this happened.... And to go to emerg to have them out.... Another doctor does not like to work on another doctors work.... So i have to wait two more days in pain to get help.......never again......
Daughter had surgery with Dr. Lawendy. He is a very nice DR to talk to and he answered all our questions although our consult appointment he was 3 hrs late. The major issue is that his office staff never answer phone calls, always get voice mail and they don't return your calls. Day after surgery we needed to talk to Dr. Lawendy and the office was closed for meetings (really??) and there was no other number to call even though discharge papers said to call his office if we had any issues. LHSC had no ortho dr on call to talk to. He might be a great dr but his office staff need more help or training on how to handle a busy office.
This is the second time I was the unfortunate patient of Dr. LaWendy. Like some others on here, I don't know how he is being praised. He does not have time to see you, nor follow through. It took me TWO YEARS to get through to his staff (secretary). He screwed up my first surgery and now my second one, to supposedly repair the first, is screwed up, as well and now has a serious infection. And am I able to get hold of him? NO. My advice is to run, run and run far away, if he is recommended as your ortho surgeon. A nice man, a horrible surgeon and doctor.
TOP ortho surgeon in Ontario! I Was extremely fortunate to get Dr Lawendy when I shattered my leg playing hockey last year. Thanks to his phenomenal surgical skills and outstanding post op coaching and support throughout the recovery, I am able to continue my active lifestyle 100%. HIs staff and support team at Victoria Hospital were excellent as well. If you get Lawendy, you're lucky!
