Ratings for Dr. Vadula Jayaraman
Very aggressive and argumentative in attitude towards my questions when coming in - couldn't get two words out before he had already decided what the problem was. As a doctor it helps to listen to what your patients are saying before immediately talking over them and saying they have no problem.
I left comments back on April 17, 2017 about this doctor. Awful. Found a new wonderful doctor. But this doctor never transferred my file even though he asked and I paid $50 to have my medical file transferred. I have transferred to a new doctor who actually cares and is punctual. It is a walk in clinic on Burrard but he has regular patients as well. He is Dr. Tarun Shaha 1160 Burrard and I recommend him. I was worried changing doctors at the time but I'm glad I did. I feel sorry for the people who are still going to Dr Jarayama. Should not be in the profession.
If I could rate this dr in the negatives I would. We previously had dr Ellison who was wonderful. He delivered my sister and I, he has been our doctor literally our whole lives. It was a sad day when he retired. But worse was meeting his replacement. My mother is on a very set prescription regimen which he wanted to change. She had to fight to have it left alone. He cornered her in the exam room screaming at her when she asked a few questions, so loud when she finally was able to get out and was crying, the whole waiting room had heard it. He told my sister all of her problems are because she is overweight, wouldn’t prescribe her birth control pills because he said she was still of age to have babies. None of his business. He is an absolutely terrible ‘doctor’. When my mother called to have her file transferred he told her he would charge her $50 for it - he is not allowed to do this when another doctor is requesting it. She has been waiting about a month for her new doctor to receive her file and nothing. If you’re looking for a new doctor stay FAR FAR away from this one.
I had been seeing Dr. Ellison for approximately 25 years...yes you had to wait to see him but when you did, he was always on top of things and ready to listen and help!!! Very bright, warm, compassionate Doctor. Unlike Dr. Jayaraman, who has no bedside manner and decides to change prescriptions on you without discussing it. I found this out when I went to refill a mild prescription for anxiety which Dr. Ellison prescribed for me few years back. The pharmacist asked if It as new too this prescription and I replied no!! Well, the awesome, smart pharmacist said he can't fill it....it was not what has been prescribed to me. The pharmacist sent a fax to Dr. Jayaraman to change the prescription 4 days ago, I called to see if I had my meds were ready and they said no,nothing back from Dr Jayaraman so I called the office and the fax was just sitting his desk!!!
I made comments below on April 18, 2017. Unfortunately I had to see this doctor one last time to get my prescriptions refilled. I waited 1 hour and 10 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. He was not interested in seeing me. He wrote my prescriptions and I left as quickly as I could. The following week, I interviewed 3 doctors and finally chose one I think will be very good. I had my file transferred. Please don't go to this doctor. You will certainly be disappointed. Oh and on top of it, he look very disorganised.
Doctor Jayaraman is pleasent enough as a person, but he did not meet my needs as a physician. I had a fairly serious illness and surgery, but he did not appear to be interested. He had not looked at any of the reports or lab results which had been sent to him and to the specialist. When I asked for a copy of my biopsy, which he said he did not have, he did not obtain it and send it to me as requested. I could not in good faith recommend him.
This incompetent, argumentative, arrogant, and fraudulent buffoon should have his credentials revoked. I cannot imagine how this man ever passed medical school. I do believe "Dr" Vadula would like a simple easy elder care practise where he can easily condescend to his patients and make as many followup appointments as he can to maximize billable hours to the Medical services plan. I am dismayed that this man can actually practice medicine. My God... Yes I most certainly will be seeking PROFESSIONAL medical help elsewhere. I do indeed miss Dr.Ellison. Excellent bed side manner, empathetic, kind, warm, and intelligent. However I wish someone at least worthy of the title Doctor took his place.
This doctor should not be in the profession. I really miss Dr. Andrew Ellison who retired. Dr. Jayarman will not refill my prescriptions over the phone even though I have pre-existing conditions for the last 6 years. Very inconvenient. I have gone to his office at least 6-7 times and always have to wait 45-60 minutes. His office hours are poor. His office voicemail recording says only leave a message if it is urgent. I am currently looking for another gp. Other people's comments below are true.
