Ratings for Dr. Zahi Touma
Dr. Touma is very knowledgeable and empathetic. He is very current and up to date with evidence based practice. He is able to ask the right questions and takes the time to address emotions that come along with having a chronic disease (lupus) . He is a great active listener and is always able to make your situation more positive. I am always more hopeful after leaving an appointment with him. He does have residents, however he will always review their assessments and meet you personally. He is very thorough and a great great great human being!
Dr. Touma is an excellent rheumatologist and goes out of his way to make sure we are treated fairly. I have had gout for many years and moved to Toronto just over 1 year ago, and the input and advice I have gotten from Dr. Touma has been extremely helpful to manage my condition. He outlines options and potential consequences and gives his advice on the best route. He even checks the rest of our body is okay and referred me to a dermatologist to address my eczema. Excellent doctor that really cares about his patients. Go see him!
Dr. Touma is is very knowledgeable, nice and kind as a person. He has lots of patience and is more than willing to explain and answer all questions. After diagnosis I was scared, but now he helped me a lot by giving right medication, good advices and explanations, so I feel I am in good hands now. This doctor I highly recomend.
Dr. Touma is the one who put everything together for my A.S. Diagnosis. He is patient, kind, personable and so knowledgeable. I truly wish ALL of my Doctors were the same as he. I was sad to find he had transferred to the Lupus Clinic. They are so lucky to have him.
Since being diagnosed with lupus in May 2015, Dr. Touma has tried a variety of treatments with me, many of wish have not reacted well with my fragile system. The best thing about Dr. Touma, is that he knows as soon as a treatment plan is not right, and he ALWAYS finds an alternative treatment plan. His biggest goal in my opinion is keeping his patients out of pain, and ensuring that they understand all aspects of thier disease. Highly reccomend seeing Dr. Touma, even if you have another rheumatologist. (second opinions are very helpful in finding the right diagnosis in autoimmune diseases)
