Ratings for Dr. Fred Hui
If you are seeking a solution to a medical problem or crisis that your doctor cannot find a medical solution to such as rany auto immune disorder, especially cancer, pharmaceutical drug addiction or complications, diabetes related complications, severe allergies, metals found in your blood and just about any problem you have that your doctor can't explain or help you with, you will not be disappointed if you see Dr.H I have seen him get a friend off of and addiction to the 4 most strongest prescription pain killers that she had been taking under her doctors care for over 13 years, within a few weeks . I went with her to every chelation treatment and appointment with Dr. H over a 3 month period. At age 75, she went from being an angry, moody, sometimes suicidal person to her normal happy self within a few months. She is determined to this day, 3 years later to never take these again and to treat any pain without pharmaceuticals.. I also have been taking my mom who had been on insulin for 15 years. She had the usual diabetes insulin related complications like swelling of ankles, highs and lows in blood sugar, extreme high readings when measuring blood sugar despite precisely following the medical suggested diet for diabetics from the diabetic association. Dr. H suggested a fairly new more natural drug approved by the Canadian pharmaceutical companies and paid for by the Ontario government called INVOKANA. Her Medical Doctor agreed to the changes. She no longer is on insulin. She takes the INVOKANA along with other medications to compliment it, that Dr. H and her family doctor agree on her taking.. She went through her initial chelation treatments suggested by Dr. H to clean her vein and artery walls that diabetics are prone to clogging with the high blood sugar. She now just goes for maintenance chelation once every 6 weeks. She is 74 and thrilled to not have swollen ankles that disappeared within days and no more highs and lows from the insulin! Acceptable Blood pressure readings too. She is determined to follow the low carb diet given to her by Dr. H that compliments her chelation and INVOKANA diabetes treatment. His knowledge and personal care for the individual and not just the problem is outstanding! His clinic is always full, not of sick people, but people who are tired of being sick and finally feeling themselves for the first time in a long time thanks to Dr. Hui and his amazing professional Doctors who work as a team in his office, getting each patient back to feeling better and better. I highly recommend Dr. H to anyone who wants to take charge of their health and be educated on how the body can heal itself with the right knowledge and professional help found in Dr. H's care.
I met the doctor just yesterday but I would like to share information that will determine if I will continue and other prospective patients may not know. First is a front desk sign warning that wait times could be 2 hours. Mine was 1 hr. to be interviewed by the assistant, 30 min for the doc and 30 min for a review by the assistant. It would be better if they did not overbook or if patients were warned before arriving. Although a certified MD, Dr. Hui requires a signed form that patients accept "complementary" medical treatments, most of which are not covered by OHIP. My cortisol saliva test was $240 on top of the $275 fee for the first appointment. Other treatments, such as IV hydrogen peroxide are not supported by mainstream medicine so the patient must pay $139 per 90min+ session so the recommended 10-20 sessions for chronic infection would cost the patient $1390 - $2600. To be fair, I was asked if I knew about fees, which I did not since the info is buried way down the FAQ section of the website drhui.com Like many other reviewers I have spent years seeking treatment for chronic pain, fatigue, tense muscle crash episodes, central (not obstructiv) apnea and I also received many ineffective Rx for pain but ended up with Tylenol 500s as the least harmful along with cautious use of Tramadol on worst days. Only a month ago I was referred to an internal specialist in a Toronto integrative clinic who investigates possible causes of Fibro/CFS and other chronic syndromes. His test for cortisol did not cost extra and I'm working through an anit-viral for possible herpes virus 6 re-activation. I will continue with this doctor but am willing to see if Dr. Hui's treatments work. Despite all the positve comments, it was reassuring to see some negative ones since doctors can choose a plan with this site that allows them to "manage" their reviews. See http://ow.ly/lYm2302COD3
We were referred to this Dr. almost a year ago by a family friend. My husband suffered a head injury over 15 years ago which exasperated preexisting medical conditions..ADHD, anxiety, OCD, and depression. My husband has been seen by a plethora of specialists including an extended stay in Homewood. While the very first psychiatrist was helpful and caring, he had to relocate to Thunder Bay. This was followed by various health professionals who either increased his meds to address issues which usually led to other side effects requiring more meds. One professionally lost his practicing license due to his over prescribing and sadly my husband was one of those who suffered from increased meds. No one seemed to want to or took the time to address the history and or underlying causes ....until this Dr.We both decided to seek his support. My issues were related to a family history of thyroid as well as weight issues. My husband wanted to seek support for his depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD and inability to function with day to day tasks. Well, it has been a year since we first entered his clinic and we are a testimony to this Dr.s caring attitude, knowledge and treatment procedures. I have lost 40 lbs and my thyroid is finally functioning as it should. My husband has been depression FREE for over a year. His progress and treatment will be a longer process but we are certain he will attain a level of mental health that will and has improved his over all quality of life! Something he has been longing for for most of his life. As I said my husband has had a lifetime of mental healthough issues which were exasperated by a serious head injury. My son, who also suffers from anxiety ( since 7 yrs old ) has just seen this Dr. and has begun his journey to healing and improved life outcomes. We are so grateful to this dr. and I will continue to provide updates of my husband and sons progress to improved quality of life and freedom from mental health issues. Sincerely....a healthier and grateful wife and Mom Ps....some say too costly but I say...how can you put a price on improved health and quality of life...I say...priceless!
I have a 29 year old daughter who was so desperate she went through Electric Convulsive Therapy at CAMH in Toronto. However, it sadly did not work for Leah. After 7 years of struggling with bi polar, depression and anxiety disorder we discovered this amazing doctor/naturapath/acupuncturist. HE LITERALLY SAVED LEAH'S LIFE. I do not say that lightly. He was honest about her outcome, he was caring. He discovered her basic problems and gave her mega vitamins and minerals to help her. Put her on amino acids to 'feed' her brain and now, Leah knows when she needs to 'feed' it. We went from as many treatments as possible in two weeks and b/c this Dr.s treatment WORKS, we are down to one treatment every 10 days or so. Dr. Fred has been able to give Leah her life back. Literally. I cried with gratefulness to him last week.....he hugged me and cried back....that is his heart. He CARES for his patients...enough to battle the tide of controversy. If he had given in, my daughter might be dead today. I salute you Dr. Fred H__. As a side note, but JUST as important is the fact that I decided to try his methods to beat fibromyalgia. I am completely free of aches and pains...I no longer cry myself to sleep. I can take all the stress that life gives me and experience no set backs.....Dr. Fred's methods are different, but they sure WORK. I highly recommend him to anyone reading this. He embraces pharmaceuticals, naturapathic medicine and Chinese. Integrated...the best of all worlds.
I was a student through the University of Toronto. This experience was an eye opener to the world of complementary medicine, showing me the variety of practices. He genuinely cares about finding alternative therapies for his patients that work for them. Staff are wonderful at attending to patient's needs. He enjoys explaining things in understandable terms. He and his team are advocates for complementary medicine and introduced me to the community of complementary medicine in Toronto. His treatments aren't for everyone or everything-- in fact, some of his treatments seem bizarre and may not be evidence based through standard research, but he definitely provides another option, especially for those who have not found solutions elsewhere. His practice reminds us all to keep an open mind and to listen to the patient.
I've been a patient of Dr H for the past 5 months. I am a real person and am elated to share that his treatments and approach has given me a chance to enjoy healthier and more active life style. My past rapidly progressing medical issues include a failed triple bypass, a valve change, five angio plasty procedures (the last 2 within 8 months), diabetes and chronic high bp. These conditions left me to become home bound as I had almost constant shortness of breath, chest pain, and no energy with smallest movements. These conditions also forced me to seek solutions in the internet which led me to Dr H page with more than ample information on his approach, what he offers and other effective treatments . I decided to call, asked clear questions regarding costs and made a conscious decision to make an appointment. I was also impressed by the number of positive reviews because I respect and value other people and believe them. Now through my personal experience I can say that I concur with positive reviews that majority of patients have shared. These include: his expertise and knowledge, his genuine concern and compassion for human beings/patient's quality of life, being heard for the first time without feeling you are being pushed out. I also believe he is very gifted and trust his excellent diagnostic abilities supported by lab results and science and his openness to change treatment or medication towards optimal health. When in his office, for the first time ever, I knew exactly what was happening in my body, and I knew that I had made the right decision. After the initial consultation, he follows up by visiting the Chelation treatment center, checks every ones progress, make necessary changes and recommendations. He is even open to address your concerns by phone! Dr H's love and passion for giving the best to his patients is evident by choosing a team of very caring, fully qualified trained medical doctors as assistants who are on various stages of becoming Canadian Board Certified. He also has very caring and helpful administrative assistants. Finally, I am happy to say that on the road to recovery, I can now walk 4 blocks without stopping, no chest pressure nor shortness of breath. related to blocked arteries. My sugar levels and readings are much closer to ideal and my blood pressure is within the acceptable range most of the times. I will continue following his treatment and maintenance for life. My only wish is that his treatments were covered so, more people could benefit and have access to his excellent care. Thank you Dr H you are worth the wait!
went to Dr. H. because I was looking for an acupuncturist but was persuaded by all of these positive reviews to see him for my very hard to diagnose health issues. He was not able to diagnose them either and the iv treatments were not helpful. I think his low dose Cortef was downright harmful particularly for what I actually had. I have finally uncovered that my problems relate to mold toxicity which very few doctors are familiar with. I am writing this review to balance out the other reviews which make it sound like Dr. H. walks on water. He is compassionate and caring and truly tries to help but please know that he is not always able to do so and was not in my case. I also question who is writing all of these glowing reviews based on my experience. His treatments just cost me a lot of money and time and were not helpful.

I have been working with Dr. H for a few months now, and the progress is slow and steady. I have complex issues and compounding issues, including peri-anal Crohn's, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Osteoporosis, Fibromyalgia and SI joint pain. I wanted to write a testimonial because Dr. H goes above and beyond the call of duty. He has a wealth of knowledge, and has been trying different methods with me to address all of my issues. I feel followed by Dr. H and he has been so willing to spend ample time with me to help reduce my pain levels. Prior to trying any new method (be it a supplement, medication or procedure), Dr. H has me read the research. I really value doctors who want to inform their patients in order for them to make educated choices. I am excited to see what the next two months will have in store as I continue to work with Dr. H. What I can say is, I feel like I am in good hands. C. W., Toronto
My mother has had Type 2 diabetes for about fifteen years. She was on the same medications for years and with increasing dosage as time passed. What my family and I did not know during that time, was that the medication she had taken to lower her blood sugar, had, in fact, made her hungry, given her strong cravings and made her gain weight. Then, in 2015, Dr. H. started to treat her diabetes. What a huge difference! He focussed on making changes to her medication to take her out of the vicious cycle of meds causing cravings, and diet. He changed her diabetes drugs, monitored the results and tested her regularly. The change in medication caused her sugar level to decrease because she had less cravings. Dr. H. used his vast knowledge of diabetes drugs and experience in treatment of diabetes to find the right combination of medication to reduce her risk factors, and help my mother to better manage her disease. He also started her on a low carbohydrate diet and suggested that she eat more beneficial foods. At first, my mother was very upset as she could no longer eat her everyday staples of white rice, pasta, bread etc. She was very skeptical and said that the diet would not help. Meal times became challenging as she complained and mourned the loss of her staples, but she stuck to the diet. Dr. H offers patient-centred care. He is gentle, compassionate, understanding and always available to answer questions. He explains medical jargon in a way that a lay person with can understand, and he makes you feel as if you have some sense! Recent test results show that my mother has gone from being an uncontrolled diabetic to be a non-diabetic. That is directly attributable to Dr. H’s medical supervision. My family and I are so grateful to Dr. H. Words are not enough to express our deepest thanks for all his care and help. He is THE BEST!!
