Ratings for Dr. John Sampson
I was waiting at QEH due to terrible cold and fever, after 4 hours waiting, Dr John Sampson checked my situation for one minute then gave me prescription for 2 drugs. One is Siv-Azithromycin and another one is a drug prevent vomit. When I pick up the drugs from drug store, the pharmacist told me those 2 drugs are not good combination and will cause heart problem. Finally I got Siv-Azithromycin only. However, Siv-Azithromycin almost killed me, I need to see another doctor for a another treatment...
This doctor has to be one of the biggest jerks I've ever met in my life. I had the misfortune of getting him when I took my 11 month old daughter in to a walk-in clinic (at the recommendation of tele-health 811). Even though it was over a day ago now, I'm still completely shocked with how rude, unprofessional and completely uncaring he was. He was a sarcastic, arrogant jerk. Aside from being extremely unprofessional he lacked basic people skills and etiquette. The definition of a doctor who is in the job for the money and couldn't care less about actual people is Dr. Sampson.
Patient sent to QEH via ambulance due to severe confusion and fall (injuring Head and Leg). After waiting 4 hours to see this doctor he wanted to do nothing for the patient. He finally agreed to do X-ray of leg but negligently not CT of head. Very dismissive along with an attitude problem. Refused to discuss confusion issue and wanted family doctor to address. Now patient has to wait (possibly with serious head trauma) for a CT due to the negligence of this asinine doctor!
I went in with pain radiating down my arm and neck after being on medications for almost 8 months. He upped my med's and requested an MRI within 2 weeks. 4 days after my MRI was completed (within the 2 week time frame) , he called me to ensure someone had gone over my results with me. Thank you Dr Sampson - he was very pleasant, listened to my questions, was very attentive and followed through with his promise.
I saw Dr. Sampson in the emergency dept. a few days after I had a miscarriage. I woke up early in the morning with the most terrible dizziness I had ever experienced and was scared I had gotten an infection since the miscarriage had to be induced since it wasn't occurring naturally, the baby had no heartbeat. He didn't even really examine me, asked if I had taken the medication for the miscarriage as the result of a home pregnancy test, implying I thought that I was almost aborting the baby. Then he prescribed me gravol so the dizziness would not make me sick to my stomach and sent me on my way. The most uncaring doctor I have ever had the experience of dealing with. I never go to the ER and will never go back unless I am dying and hopefully never have to deal with this doctor again.
