Ratings for Dr. Barbara Mederski
This amazing woman performed her magic on me by diagnosing and treating wounds I had on both legs from edema and diabetes. I had been suffering for six months with no care from my GP or other doctors and I was suffering so much, I was getting prepared to bite my legs off. Dr. Mederski accepted me as a patient, and using her knowledge and magic, cured my wounds and now my lifeis much less painful. She is indeed, a great healer.
She is the Best! She exemplifies what the ideal doctor should be - patient centric, knowledgeable, experienced and most importantly she goes to the root of the problem and does not stop at the symptoms management. Great experience and she has rebuilt my confidence in the Canadian Health System.
Dr Mederski cared for me in 2001 when I had a crazy bacteria infection in my arm. I just stumbled on her name as my mom kept notes for me on the incident. I know that I likely have my arm today thanks to her and the care she gave me. I'll always be thankful that she was there at North York General to care for me. My family and 2 boys thank you!!!
Dr. Mederski saved my life.I had a leg infection started out as a small rash on my leg. In a matter of a few days my leg became grossly swollen and the rash spread to 40% of my body. Both my legs began to weep yellow fluid. I went to a walking clinic and my family doctor both diagnosed me with a sever staph infection and gave me antibiotics and told me to go to emerge if it doesn't get any better. Well it.got much worse overy the course of 2 days. I went to emerge and they presumed the worst I spent 2 days at the hospital doing blood work and skin swabs. After 2 days of IV antibiotics my swelling began to drop but my legs began to burn as if I have survived a sever 3rd degree burn. I had to spend every 1 hour in an ice tub jus to cool off the burning sensation. I was released from.the hospital with no clear indication what caused my ailment. So my family doctor recommended seeing an allergist. The allergist also concluded it was a bacterial infection and recommend more antibiotics as my rash was still spreading. Of course I stopped taking the antibiotics as I felt that all these doctors were just plan stupid at this point. Nothing was helping. I found Dr. Mederski online and booked an appointment. I figured if she can't help me nobody can. She made an emergency appointment for me and I went to her office the very next day. She was no ORDINARY DOCTOR by any means. She spent 2.5 hours with me asking me every question possible about my life and everything leading up to my condition. She took 8 pages of notes. I was physically but even more emotionally since I haven't been able to hold my 3 toddlers for 2 weeks as I was afraid i had a dangerous infection. Dr. Mederski cupped my hands in between both of hers and said "don't worry your not contagious". She continued to explain that i have been completely misdiagnosed and that I will be better within a few days. She recommended a topical steriod cream and litters lay within 2 days my rash disappeared by 90%. Than 2 days later my rash was completely gone. 6 doctors, 4 hospital visits, my family doctor and 2 walk-in clinic diagnosed me all wrong. They feed me antibiotics until it became life threatening and Dr. Mederski literally saved my life. I doubt she will ever read this post as she is much to humble, but I just wish more doctors were like her. I am able to hug my kids again and no longer fearful that I ever had a bacterial infection. Thank you Dr Mederski you are a women who cares more about patients than about money. May you be blessed with a long and happy life so you can care for the sick.
A MOVIE ABOUT HER LIFE SHOULD BE MADE AS A TRAINING FILM FOR ASPIRING medical personnel. I'm not sure if she is wholly human or superhuman. Her dedication and concern for her patients are legendary. Truly gifted by God to fulfill the biblical mandate "the healer shall heal" . Superb practitioners I one and human being. Thank you for everything,Dr. Mederski.ck
I was in in patient at North York hospital a few years ago critically ill and getting worse by the hour. I had been seen by the infection specialist and 2 other surgical specialists on call and started on antibiotics but continued to deteriorate. My parents wanted to transfer me to a downtown hospital and had already made the connection. Luck was with me that Dr Mederski came on duty and reviewed my case all over again not taking anything for granted that others had written before. I just remember thru a fog how she removed her mask and said -"this is not a contagious condition but the next 48 hours are going to be critical and I want you to be brave". The reason I remembered this is because I had the exact same infection that the famous tennis player Jack Sock's brother recently was in the news about and which was life-threatening. It was Lemierre's syndrome. Years later I owe her my life and will never forget her brilliance.
