Ratings for Dr. Anna Nazif
She's not detail oriented. So you might have to repeat your needs every visit, such as no students. I don't find her to be respectful but more covertly egotistical. You have to be cautious in what you say to her. She really pushes the medication regardless of side effects. She will google whatever she's not sure about. Seems to want to help but there's an uncomfortable feeling I get being alone with her. The staff at Burnaby Hospital should all be fired. Have of them seem like Cluster B types themselves.
She prescribed me medications that gave me horrible side effects. I went in to get my current medications dose increased and instead should put me on a new medication that makes me feel tired and worn out. Completly destroys my quality of life. She's nothing more than a pill pusher
Dr. Nazif is more interested in pursuing her career as a psychiatrist than she is at helping her patients. I think more patients under her care in the future will be pushed towards suicide. She is not a doctor I would want seeing anyone I care about.
I saw Dr. Nazif at Burnaby Hospital in the psychiatric ward. She is the best psychiatrist I have seen in my 15 years of suffering from mental illness. She listens and has a great personality which is rare to find in a psychiatrist. I only rated the staff a 2 because most of the nurses at the hospital need to find professions they actually enjoy.
Please understand the context of this review. I had the fortune of being under the care of Anna at Burnaby General Hospital after my third attempt to take my own life. She is kind, full of empathy and a ' breath of fresh air', compared to the old school, relics, that I have witnessed and personally experienced as almost destructive in the way they practice. Dr. Kang thought that all I needed was an anti-depressant and put me on sandwich rations, as punishment??? I'm sure that Dr. Nazif will inject much needed new thinking and with here larger than life personality, change the course of peoples lives. One caveat is that she prescribed a medication that is well know to cause suicidal thoughts and actions in people with no history.
She spoke to me something like 'if you think your life sucks it'll really suck if you don't have a penis'. I felt that insinuating my life sucks was unhelpful and offensive. The government pays and you can't fire them so this sort of service is what's provided.
