Ratings for Dr. Allan Kopyto
This is without question the most uncaring, cold doctor I have ever met. Zero compassion or care. Not sure he has many skills as a practitioner. I've heard similar opinions from other patients in Hamilton. I find it hard to believe the positive opinions here are not him or his family and friends.
Amazing Doctor! When I had my baby he met me in the hospital, and then came to my house the next day so I didn’t have to leave the day after I had a baby! He’s incredible! Honestly switched to him a couple years ago and it was the best decision of my life. Highly recommend!
We have been patients for a very long time and he has never let us down. If he cannot help his referral specialists will do the work and very quickly. He returns call even on the weekends and calls the pharmacies for prescriptions. A very decent man for sure and his staff is amazing too
My experience with this doctor and his staff have been nothing short of horrible. Dr. Kopyto is extremely condescending and has no empathy, talking to him is like talking to a brick wall except a brick wall actually has character. In regards to the staff, they are unprofessional and completely unorganized. I have epilepsy and my current neurologist no longer practices. I first called for a referral end of November 2017, it is now February 9th 2018 and I'am still waiting. My current prescription is running out and my pills need to be evaluated the staff is aware of the urgency and still have been coming up with every excuse in the book as to why it has taken nearly 3 months to have this simple issue resolved. My patience has expired and at this point it is just disgusting and a complete lack of respect. I'am in the process of changing family doctors. You have been warned. RUN.
Helpful and friendly receptionist. The nurse is great, she always does half the work for the doctor before he even steps in the room, asking all kinds of questions and making notes in my file. I've been a patient for about 8 years, and seeing him isn't an issue. Unfortunately, I've had complicated issues that required very long waits for specialists (i.e.: 11 months for a neurologist) and certain exams, but that's not his fault. Surprisingly, when a fairly big gallstone was discovered, he sent me to a surgeon right away. Turns out the surgeon said no symptoms, we're not doing anything (even if both my parents nearly died from complications of gallstones) and sent me home saying to come back when you have symptoms... o.O Dr. Kopyto has always been very helpful with all things relating to work injuries and forms, making the time to see me whenever I needed something else on a short notice. Always asks me what I think he should do and what do I want to do, which is funny, since I am not the doctor. But I think he does that to see what we understand about our condition. Not very good when it comes to call back and follow-up on exams. I've had to call them to ask if results are in, and what to do next. Appointments always seem to be a bit rushed, so I tend to write notes so I don't forget to ask things and bring him "homework" on a separate sheet with anything that is important to add to my file. Gotta make the most out of those 15 minutes somehow!
Assigned to him through insurance for a review of my MVA injuries. He barely makes eye contact, other then tell me to bend over to touch my toes and then pulling on my toes after I told him i'm having an Arthritis flair up in the feet, he did no examination. He asked about my psoriasis and I told him where I have it which includes being on my low back/hips and he asked to see but the skirt I had on is not stretchy and difficult to pull on an off but I tried to pull down what I could to show him. That was before these "tests" he did. During the bending over test he tried to pull down my skirt twice to "see the psoriasis"... excuse me, we already went over the skirt issue and without asking he tries to pull down my bottoms? Pervert or bad bedside manner? Whatever it was, it felt uncomfortable and rude! I didn't feel comfortable from the very beginning nor did I feel like he was any real attention to what I was saying. He didn't check my issues so I have no idea how he is going to put together a report!
