Ratings for Dr. David Michael Hajek
I found Dr Hajek very professional and yet very approachable and helpful. He came highly recommended by Dr. Finelli when I sought a second opinion. Dr. Hajek spent a lot of time explaining the CT Scans and the need for a partial nephrectomy to remove a cyst from my left kidney. He visited me regularly during my initial hospital recovery and then 10 days later, when I was hospitalized again due to complications, he visited every day until I was fully recovered . I was completely confident under his care.
We found Dr. Hajek to be an excellent urologist. My husband and I realized from the first consultation that we were in very capable hands. He has a warm, professional manner and patiently answered all our questions and addressed our many concerns. Overall, a great doctor. We couldn't ask for more!
This doctor is more than happy to perform the surgery, but does not provide follow up care. I have called 3 times and stressed i have pain and concerns that need to be addressed after the op. And that i have run out of pain meds and need a prescription sent asap!! No call back or pain meds. Consider this doctor at your own risk. If you cannot follow up with patient care aftetwards, please dont take on more patients than you can handle!
My father was referred to Dr Hajek by Dr Buckley who is the regular urologist referred by family doctor for treatment of a kidney tumor. After learning my father was a retired surgeon, he was treated more as a colleague than a patient. Highly technical terms were used as we want to know the whole story since there is no point to lie to a retired surgeon. Everything from initial referral to surgery were done promptly, less than 1 month to be exact. Being a retired surgeon, my father gave Dr Hajek and the rest of the NYGH staffs top scores in all category. He is now in the process of begin referred to a top oncologist specialized in kidney cancer at Sunnybrook. Efficiency in this case dispels many of the myths about cancer treatment in Canada, all the waiting etc.
Dr. Hajek saved my life and the life of my unborn child. He had to operate on my kidney while I was pregnant in my 8 month and did another major surgery one year after. I can not rate this doctor highly enough. He cares, something doctor these days don't do. Thanks to him and the referral made to him by Dr. Rosenthal I now have a 3 year old healthy boy and I am totally functional and free of pain.
Dr. Hajek operated on my father for prostate cancer. I found him to be kind, caring and compassionate. His secretary called back very quickly when I called with post-op questions and then the doctor called me himself later that day. He took the time to explain and discuss everything with me and my family. I would highly recommend him!
Both our neighbors and ourselves had 2 kids and were done having children. Both husbands were to have a vasectomy with a local doctor, but he had Dr Hajek come in to finish up his last few clients as he was on leave. We BOTH now have 3 kids. BOTH vasectomies performed by Dr Hajek did not work. Please do NOT consider Dr Hajek to perform your vasectomy. Statistically this seems impossible, but it is not!
Dr. Hajek is not a very knowledgeable doctor. At least not where my case was concerned. He seems like a nice enough individual but as we all know, doctors can be very dangerous people. I urge you to do your own research and seek a second opinion. Avail yourself of knowledge and don't be afraid to stand up to ignorance. Most doctors have very cookie cutter text book knowledge and almost no real life experience when dealing with real world patient problems. Mr. Hajek is one of such individuals. Be very careful.
