Ratings for Dr. Darryl Ableman
When I went to see Dr Ableman, he didn't even say hello or anything, didn't ask ANY question or even looked at me once. I felt like an inconvenience to him and that he had absolutely ZERO interest in my health issues or anything. He is probably the worst doctor I have even seen. I will never go back to see him again.
This doctor followed my second pregnancy, and I had a fantastic experience with him overall. He was very attentive to my pregnancy history, and watched me closely, as I had a history of pre eclampsia. I had a smooth pregnancy overall, and he was respectful of my wishes and needs. He was excellent when giving my kids immunizations, they never even cried at their 18 month ones! After a horrible experience with my old doctor, this doctor was a breath of fresh air, and I continue to see him and take my children to him.
Since we bought a house in Burke mountain, we have always been looking forward to new services and when a new medical clinic showed up we were pretty exciting about the news until.... i met 'the guy' (I would not call him a doctor) who runs the place. That guy is rude, has a condescending attitude, and the list goes on. I has zero customer service knowledge and let me tell you I would settle with 0. I just got a prescription for high cholesterol and asked if this could be temporary. 'The guy' got almost upset and rushed me out of the room and mentioned very loud in the hallway in front of the other patients waiting that he has a line up and does not have more time, not without saying that I have diabetes very loud. Mr Abelman, you are not welcomed in Burke Mountain.
This Doctor is the worst one in the whole lower mainland--he or ly spends 1 minute talking to you and then he moves to next patient cause he probably makes more money by seeing more patients in 1 day ---I am going to make a complaint to medical association about this matter
This doctor doesn't show any interest in his patients. I can't even tell if he is a good doctor because every time I came for a prenatal visit he would spend only a couple of minutes on me. It feels uncomfortable to ask him any questions, like your waisting his time
This is the worst Doctor in history HE looked at my private area and said I had genital warts but he was wrong cause another doctor took a sample and sent it to the cdc lab which confirmed was genital herpes ---he should go back to medical school to get retrained cause this guy is a total joke --his medical licence should be taken away from him cause he can't figure out what to do
Dr Ableman has been our Family Physician for over 20 years. I find he has always been attentive and communicates appropriately with me. I have been thankful to him so many times, he helped in diagnosing my post partum depression and assisted me to the right treatment. I have always taken an invested interest in my health, and put forth the effort to improve myself and my lifestyle, perhaps the collaborative approach between he and I makes all the difference in how I feel of him as a physician. Dr Ableman has been open to questions and supportive in refereeing myself or my family members when higher level of assessment beyond a GP was needed. He does have a very busy office, and I do agree his front end staff need assistance in answering the telephone and making appointments, perhaps no one has given him a honest perspective of what clients experience when trying to get an appointment after all he does not try calling his office like a potential or actual client. I think when reading comments on a sight such as this you must remember most people only leave a comment if they have had a negative experience, rarely do people speak or leave a comment with good experiences. As a GP, Dr Ableman is attentive and educated.
