Dr. Kanta Dave's Ratings
Doctor Dave has been my family doctor my entire life, she is very patient with you and is quite knowledgable, i have been through a lot with this doctor, including the time i kicked her as a child and she treats me and acts like she generally cares about my well-being. The waiting room waits are very long yes, but its worth the wait for the quality of care you receive from her, the only real complaint i could have about her is that i sometimes find her hard to understand. but other than that she is a very good doctor
I've been with Dr. Dave for over 10 years and plan to visit her as long as she is practicing. Her expertise in pediatrics is exceptional. As a nurse working in the hospital and in other practices, I have come to know Dr. Dave as a well known, exceptional doctor. And for "the waiting room packed with immigrants," (quoted from a previous comment) they are fortunate to even have a doctor accept them, especially with the shortage of doctors and other health professionals in Calgary. There will always be doctors who are better than others. Dr. Dave is personable and gets to the point.
No Dr. Dave does not suffer fools gladly. But if you go in there and articulate your condition and needs she will bend over backwards to help you. There is no hand holding / gossiping in her office. However, I have been with her over 10 years and find her exceptionally personable / attentive. She is just "no nonsense".
I have been with this doctor for 5 years and cannot keep this any longer about her bad practices. She does not shut the door while asking your medical problems and all the patients sitting and the waiting room is always packed with new immigrants, crying children could hear everything that is being discussed with her. She checks your lungs with her stethoscope pretending to listen but how could she when she moves the device faster than a bullet. She takes your blood pressure hurriedly and would say it is good.
On another visit separately with my daughter, my daughter told this to me afterwards that this doctor is getting senile I think since she checked my daughter's ears, eyes etc. for annual exam TWICE after here PAPS smear was done, then checked again her ears, eyes etc. She is always in a rush to get out of that room to go to her next patients. This doctor works for quantity and not for quality of care and attention to her patients let alone listening to your problem effectively. She has selective listening. She works for the money not for her patients' well being. She is the only one open on Saturdays.
Are these ratings being read or take into considerations by the Physicians College of Surgeons Association of Alberta? We and the rest of her patients hope so.
The only good thing with her is if you want prescription there is no hesitation at all on her part.
I will NEVER go back to see this Doctor. I went in seeking help as my son was killed 2 years ago and I feel I need further mental health counselling. After offering me anti depressants(which I am not interested in) and then upping the dose on my sleeping meds I was rushed out the office in 3 minutes flat! Terrible to feel so insignificant!! Do not use this doctor if you are looking for one who cares...
One of the best Physicians that I have ever been under care by, she actually did everything that she possibly could in dealing with my illness. She went above and beyond her care for me.
I would also recommend her to anyone that needs a doctor. She makes my world a better place to live in. She is a very good doctor in Calgary.
Dr. Dave is one of the best and most respected GPs in Calgary. Unfortunately doctors especially GPs have to deal with all kinds of people and a few of the bad seeds have left negative reviews here. Dr Dave has thousands of patients who love and respect her but it’s always the complainers that tend to write a bad review. You can't please everyone and I’m sure she must have to deal with some horrible people, namely some of the ones on this site. I have never met a doctor who goes above and beyond for her patients and cares for them the way that Dr Dave does. She still does house calls to attend to her elderly patients and her patients are like family to her. In turn, they love her and are so grateful to her. I have never seen a doctor’s office so full of gifts before! Every time I visit her office, there are patients leaving all kinds of gifts and cards. Also, Dr Dave has received numerous awards for her treatment towards immigrants and refugees in Calgary. Her patients simply adore her.
This month Aug 2013- 6mo after my Annual pap the Dr's office calls me to tell me Im due for my annual pap. I told the receptionist I was just there in MARCH! They said, OH OK sorry. I said - wait! Can u tell me my results, check my file? She check's my file and cant find the lab results. She says to call back Monday (it was a Saturday) because they prob cant reach the lab on a Saturday. Monday comes and nobody calls me,I call them. They tell me to call back Tuesday. The lab told them they never received my swab. My swab never made it to the lab. DR. KANTA DAVE LOST MY TEST. I have never been so horrified in my life. I had a surgery 3.5 yrs ago to scrape cancerous cells of my cervix and they LOST MY SWAB.This DR is an imbecile who probably bought her PhD at a flea market.
Dr Dave is a caring and exceptionally competent and knowledgeable doctor. She takes no chances. If she believes there is something wrong, she is on her toes to make the appropriate recommendations. I have been her patient including my husband and three children over 10 years. I was never disappointed with her diagnosis nor with her treatments. She might sometimes come across like she is in a hurry but that is not because she wants to move on to the next patient and get rid of you. It is because her problem solving skills so strong as such that she knows the problem and the solution. If anyone needs an actual doctor, she is the person to contact. She is personable, optimistic, very well informed human being who cares for you. Her qualities as a physician and person far exceeded my expectations. I have the comfort of knowing that my family is in good hands.
