Ratings for Dr. D. Roy Chernoff
Like many commentators here, Dr. Chernoff has been my doctor since I was born. My parents love him and sing his praises, but I have never had a truly good experience with him. I stopped seeing him when I was 13 because he walked in without knocking while I was still changing, and told me I could start dieting if I wanted (I hadn't asked, and I was very athletic). Unfortunately, it is hard to find a new family doctor in Saskatoon. I went in to see him again after being diagnosed with depression by my trauma counselor and he asked if I had "tried sucking it up". Another time I went in to see him because I hadn't menstruated in 4 months and he told me "wombs are mysterious" and it was probably just an "act of god". He didn't try to do anything helpful until I told him I wanted an actual reason, and I was concerned about my fertility. I am actively searching for a new doctor and think Roy should retire a few years early.
My family has been seeing Dr. Chernoff for years and have never really had any issues until about 2 years ago. My mother started to go and see him because she was having health issues and needed help. She was in severe pain and all he ever said was she pulled muscles in her stomach. She finally had enough and went straight to the hospital after a visit to Dr. Chernoff. She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer that weekend and passed away 6 months later. She was in pain and seeing Chernoff for more than a year before she was diagnosed and he wouldnt even send her for an ultrasound. I switched doctors as soon as all of this happened and would never recommend him.
Dr.Chernoff delivered me and has been my physician my entire life. He is a little quirky but that's just his sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable and will always point you in the right direction if he doesn't have the info. He listens well and will make sure that he has verified before he calls you with your results. I love him.
Dr. Chernoff has been my doctor since he delivered me (I'm now in my late 20's) and he has never steered me or my family wrong. He has a very no-nonsense, practical approach and he won't waste your time on pointless things, but when you've got a legitimate issue he will listen and help you out with it. There have also been a few times that he noticed something other than what I came in for, and I am grateful for his attentiveness. He is a true family doctor, which means he might be out delivering a baby or something, so you might occasionally have to wait a while at your appointment, or even see another doctor at the clinic. This has only happened to me once though. The staff at the clinic are excellent as well. In my experience, Roy has always worked with good people.
Dr. C is the best! I started going to him on a recommendation 14 years ago. I was a single young mom. He treated me and my son with respect and consideration. I asked him to be my family Dr. And he agreed. Since then I have gotten married, he still took on my husband and step daughter and recently my sister in law. It's always slow to get in to see him because he's so in demand, but he is worth it. I travel over two hours to see him and he is worth it! May have to spend time in waiting room, but then again, he makes it worth it by being such a personable knowledgeable and supportive dr!
Dr. Chernoff was in the room with my mother when she gave birth to me in 1983 and I have gone to him ever since. Before they moved to their new renovated office my baby picture was still up on their bulletin board in the back. Very family friendly office and they truly care about their patients. Dr. Chernoff was my GP throughout my pregnancy and unfortunatly he was away when I gave birth to my son, but Dr. Parker was a supurb backup. He's very funny, sarcastic and makes a dreaded Dr's visit enjoyable. If I see him out at a movie theatre or when he comes into where I work he always remembers you and has a chat about how your doing or what you've been up to. My review for Dr. Chernoff is TOP NOTCH!
