Ratings for Dr. Gregory Polyakov
He Reuined my whole right Leg 💔💔💔 after the surgery he didn't take care of me , and then I got blood clots . And if he is a proper surgeon he should know how to stop patients bleeding? When I went to another vericose veins specialist surgeons, and he told me this is totally wrong how this doctor has done my surgery 💔💔💔 after the surgery I got DVT Blood Clots after few days when I went see him , he is telling me you keep on walking you don't have DVT or blood clots, but Fraser health nurses who came to my home to do Dressing they confirmed I got DVT! When surgery was happening I was going to go in to a coma because of heavy bleeding 💔I am telling no one should go to this Doctor !
Went on for stomach problems for months, I waited weeks to see the specialist just for him to glances at the posters on his wall like he didn't know where parts in your body are, my mom is a nurse and I pointed to the spot and she said right away what was there. He told me everything that I already knew and for any pain to "see my family doctor". I went here because I was referred by the doctor! He didn't even look at me, he asked what was wrong and assumed that because I was young there is no way that there can be anything wrong with me. He even told me that because I don't have a history of cancer I can't get it. That's utter bull, two of my close family survived cancer. Honestly don't see this guy, go see someone else to get better treatment.
Very friendly & helpful front end staff. Dr. P was also very friendly, taking the time to sit, shake hands & introduce himself. He explained the entire procedure before proceeding, then explained the follow-up after care. He was very gentle with the procedure itself, and I was 'MUCH' more compfortable with the 'uncompfortable procedure' than a few years before with his predecessor. I'm very happy with my care so far, after two treatments.
I was worried After reading all the comments, I had my first visit with Dr Polyakov When I forest seen him walking around my first impression of him was not good but I thought ok I will wait and see , it was my turn and very punctual,I sat in the room and he came in He was very nice ,he greeted me ,examined me and was very gentle.and gave me options I really like his bedside manner , he does not smile so looks are deceiving Even said have a great day and thank you on my way out
Uncaring and aggressive. Talked down to me and made my problem worse. If someone might have an anal fissure, why on earth would you rapidly shove your finger right in there? No consideration for pain or discomfort. I'd rather suffer at home than see this doctor again.
Beware of this surgeon. He can do good work depending on the procedure but he's far too eager to do what may be unnecessary and drastic surgery. For instance: his solution to a suspicious polyp in my large bowel was to remove the entire colon. This is a drastic and quality of life altering procedure. (Even my GP was against removing the entire large bowel when she heard this. ) I went for a second opinion with a GI who removed the polyp Polyakov could not get out. If you are unsure about what seems to be a major surgery proposed by this doc, get a second opinion. I should add that he's very personable until you disagree with him. Then, well, not so much. His staff are a bit stern but OK, and he's generally on time.
He perform a lapascropic surgery on my brother, pulled the whole vile duct and cut twice in beween the gallbladder. Rushed to emergency, doctors here in Victoria general can hardly describe what was done, they said it was a bloody mess inside his abdominal area with vile all over. This doctor is experimenting surgeries he is not trained for. To get a properly done surgery from this doctor is like winning the lottery. With all the bad scary reviews I had just read here, I am surprised why he is still repeatedly doing what is doing. I think those good reviews are just fake one made by his relatives and friends. This should not happen in country like Canada. A very simple procedure going wrong in a high tech country like Canada, even in the third world this never happen. All of us who got a problem with this doctor should group up and get a complain to the college of surgeon, to kick him out. We will sue him for sure.
