Ratings for Dr. Brodie Ramin
Dr Ramin was my first methadone prescribing doctor I ever worked with, and so he is the gold standard to which I have compared the next two I have dealt with. Unbelievably kind and understanding, with a great sense of humour and always a smile on his face. Firm when needed but very compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. His staff (at SHCHC) are incredible and go above and beyond for their patients, many of whom show a complete lack of gratefulness for the amazing care they receive. Working in addiction can be very tiring and frustrating, yet they somehow always have a smile and a kind word. The only problem (and the last time I was there was a while ago, so it may have changed) is that because there is such a huge demand for addictions doctors, he is constantly overbooked, to the point that he often has to stay late, and the waiting times grew to sometimes well over an hour. The trick is to show up right at the beginning of his shift so you can get in faster! The best doctor I've ever had, next to Dr Crouzat in Toronto.
Dr. Ramin is an awesome doctor and I highly recommend him. He is very thorough in his care for his patients and is one of those rare doctors who really does care. The only problem I find is the reception staff. .the rudest and most argumentive people I have met.. too bad because it really affects my regular visits that I should be making.
I was followed by Dr. Kilby before being transferred to Dr. Ramin. That transfer was the best thing that ever happened! Dr. Ramin will not spend your appointment looking for something to prescribe you! He actually looks at all other options before going for medication. Especially when you are young and a simple change in your habits could help better your health! I went to him once to change the contraception pill I was taking and he took the time to explain how the pill works on your system, go through all the different options with their side effects before choosing the perfect one for me! He's young, modern, honest, fun interested in his patients!
Dr. Ramin is a young, dynamic and very kind GP with exceptional interpersonal skills. He takes great care of his patients and follows up very promptly with any concern or request to make his patients feel comfortable and diagnose any possible issues without delay. He has trained at some of the best institutions in the world (McGill, UCambridge (UK), UToronto). In 2011 he was awarded the 'Family Medicine Resident Award' from the 'College of Family Physicians of Canada', which recognizes him as "an outstanding family medicine resident as a potential leader in the discipline of family medicine based on current leadership, academic standing, research accomplishments, and communication skills".
I was with Dr. Ramin for over two years. He's young, hip, and an excellent doctor! I'd highly recommend him for any patient seeking methadone who's NOT a total baby or drama queen as Dr. Ramon follows the rules. He's an excellent, stable doctor, just don't try to lie or mess with him cause he won't put up with it. However my two years with him were extremely productive and enjoyable. If you're mature, responsible and ready to make a change, hit him up.
Dr. Ramin is my methadone doctor. He is one of the most caring, amazing people I have ever met. He's always very positive and very supporting. He holds you to a high standard in your recovery because he sees that you are capable of reaching it. What a great person! Of course, because the clinic only has 3 doctors for somewhere near a thousand patients, sometimes you have to wait almost two hours past your appointment time to see him. However, they are working on this and I've already noticed a difference. The best thing to do is to SHOW UP EARLY!! Often Hanna (the receptionist) can get you in at or before your appointment time. Worst case scenario, you're only there for 30-60 mins past your appointment time. In under 5 minutes with the doctor he is extremely comprehensive, deals with every single question or request you have and is extremely knowledgeable. His staff (Hanna) is absolutely incredible -- she goes above and beyond the call of duty every day! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR!!!
