Ratings for Dr. Darryl Toth
Doesn't have the same respect for everyone. Very quick and trying to get out the door through the whole appointment. Didn't take the time to ask further questions regarding my symptoms. Attitude is unjust. Good thing we don't have to pay cash for our health care because this doctor would be broke and not have a clientele. I guess Canada is stuck with him because people in paying countries wouldn't pay a dime for his services. Too bad he doesn't read his reviews because maybe then he would change his approach and attitude towards his patients. It's too bad Windsor has so few skin specialists. Won't be returning. Very arrogant. His time is no more valuable then mine. Very disappointed.
He just gives off this "I am a douche" vibe. He is not a sensitive doctor or person - he makes inappropriate jokes, e.g. about patients' weight and having mentally ill children. Health-care wise, he forgets to tell you important details or ask you important questions that may make a certain medication or procedure unsafe for you. In general, I have found that unless you don't ask him yourself, he won't tell you. The wait time is also ridiculous - and then he rushes you out the door despite you telling him you still have questions. The woman at the front desk gives attitude and is not pleasant to interact with when booking your appointments.
He refuses to provide any prescriptions for pain medication and does a disservice to his clients by only providing partial treatment because some crackhead drug abuser over dosed on paim meds. What a ridiculous approach to treating patients with legitimate and serious paon issues associated eith whatever medical issue brings you to his office
Awesome kind doctor. Knows his stuff and very helpful! Asked how my school was going etc. Also explained the prescribed medications a bit. It was an hour wait but it's fine because you have to understand he's a busy doctor. I heard the receptionist talking on the phone about being completely booked until march.. and it's December. I originally booked my appointment with him in August and just got mine at the end of November so make sure to book ahead and not miss it! Bring food with you as it is a long wait time at his office. If anyone has trouble finding his office go through the first building, through the pharmacy you'll find an elavator and take it to the 2nd floor room 210. Overall very happy with this doctor!
I began seeing the doctor in february and I have mixed feelings. He prescribed me accutane, which is helping. He is always a few hours behind in all appointments. He also meant to prescribe me a certain dosage and told the pharmacist to give me DOUBLE the amount healthy for me. He is rude but did apolagize for this mistake.
I saw Dr. Toth for about 1 year. During this time my psoriasis got much worse. He changed my biologics and told me to stop taking methotrexate for my arthritis. The result was spending 2 months unable to walk and a summer ruined. Here I am 6 months later still dealing with the poor outcomes of his suggestions. He does have a very dry sense of humour and I think his awkwardness stems from some sort of deep insecurity. Also, when you have severe Psoriasis and arthritis, one cannot get an emergency appointment at this office.. That is ridiculous. I called my old dermatologist in Toronto and he could see me the next week. I doubt if Dr. keeps accurate notes as each time I saw him, he did not know that it was NOT the first time I saw him and what we had discussed previously, occassionally giving opposite . I did witness the office staff being very rude to people on the phone. I doubt they understand how painful some skin issues can be.
After reading all the negative reviews I was anxious about my visit. My wait time was reasonable and did not exceed 30 minutes. Dr. Toth was personable, professional and answered all my questions. I have a treatment plan for the next three months that I hope will assist with my skin rash. The front end staff were pleasant and I overheard some patients being very rude to them and they maintained their pleasant demeanor.
I did not have a pleasant experience with this doctor... He had a medical student with him (didn't ask my permission to have him in the appointment), he completely disregarded everything my physician had written in the referral and told me that I was over reacting and creating problems that were not there. This was not the appointment I was expecting after waiting months to be seen. I will not be returning. A word of advice for people going to see him, bring a friend or relative.
