Ratings for Dr. Janet Takefman
I had to wait a bit longer than I expected but the clinic looked very busy that day. As a single woman looking to become a mother I found it really easy to talk to her. I found her to be very knowledgeable and helpful. I'd continue to see her outside of fertility treatment
Horrible experience , what a waist of time . Very cold person , not empathic , not at all of any help . When I asked her for references , she answered that it was my job to research and that she's not there to hand people references . She was looking at me from head to toe , very provoquing , insulting ,and condescending look , she made me feel like I was nothing . I couldn't wait to leave her office . Serious waist of time . What a shame to have such an inconsiderate , unhelpful woman as a psychologist . On top of all this , she had a resident med school student in her office , omg hope that student won't take her and her attitude as an example . I think it's time for her to retire ...
It has been a bad experience to work with dr. Takefman. She missed the appointment that we have waited for months, and we had to reschedule. She never provides a report after. We then have to find someone else to redo it. It costs us money and precious time.
I have been seeing Dr.Takefman as required for fertility treatment at the royal Victoria hospital and she is amazing! Very professional and knowledgeable. She really made us feel like we had options and was more than happy to go over them with us as much as we needed.
I agree with one of the previous comments refering to their experience as horrible. My hsband and I had to meet with Dr. Takefman as it was policy of the clinic we went to as well. She seemed very agressive and cold. We were already exhausted with all of the physical tests and now we were being questioned by this woman who clearly had no idea what both of us have been through in the las t couple of years. She only wanted answers that she felt met her standard. I left there with anxiety and it caused my husband and I to fight for two days...this is not the type of person you would like to meet when you are trying to be stress free and conceive. I hope to never have to see her again.
Dr. Takefman seems like she has many years of experience and met with many couples. I found her extremely condescending and unorganized at times, often asking questions she had already asked in the previous session. She seems very driven by money. I found her helpful at first but then decided to stop seeing her because she was bringing up issues that were not related to what I had gone to see her for. I did not really like my experience with her and would not recommend her. She is a straight shooter though so if that is what you are looking for you won't be disappointed. If you want a softer approach however you will be disappointed. I did not appreciate that she would cut the session short 5-10 minutes before the hour.
This was the most horrible experience. She is not professional at all and very hostile. I was obliged to see her as that is a policy in the clinic. She asked the same questions 3-5 times and insist on the different answer that she wants to hear... On the top of everything she got angry and raised her voice at me, which made me laugh, where else can you see such an unprofessional doctor! I was there with my husband and yes, we are not young, but we are not too old to have kids and we felt insulted when she ask us 5 times if we sure that we want to have a child. She insisted that we should feel ashamed using the donor!? I wanted to say to her how I felt about her hostility and rudeness, but I was afraid she will write something negative on my chart. It is very sad situation that such individual is in the system and call herself a doctor. She even said a negative remark about the fact that people from my original country come to Canada...Be careful with her and avoid if possible.
