Ratings for Dr. Emma Wakim
I have mixed feelings about Dr. Waking. I do find that you alwaysssssss have to wait forever to see her as she is always running behind. Although maybe it's not her fault as I am sure patients are late sometimes and it just snowballs. The thing is that I have to take time off work to make her appointments and I find it annoying to get off early for nothing because then I have to wait for Wakim usually at least an hour. I do despise the receptionist here as they are all super rude. Every time I need to talk to them i dread it. I do admit Wakim does seem to know what she's talking about. Sometimes she explains things too fast but I wouldn't really change her as my doctor. She has helped me with a female.problem for a while and I appreciate that.
Always a long wait time but the problem is that even when she is in the room finaly and you have a list of things to go through she is out before you even start talking about most of the items on the list.I think they should ask for consent when they bring in fellow student residents as that is common semse and not make presumtions about someones life when you have no clue .I will for sure stay away from her practice and not look back after my last appointment . Not agreeing to rush into getting a surgery maybe is the reason she acted like this and because again maybe I went for a second opinion but so does other people that would be told to get a hysteroctomie at a younger age.
I had to add a review for Dr. Wakim as I was apprehensive to go to her after reading such terrible reviews. As with any OBGYN - her punctuality is terrible - but that's to be expected when you're delivering babies. Her staff wasn't overly friendly, but they weren't rude either. She's knowledgeable, but has zero sense of humor, which is OK! She just wants to cut to the chase and move on to the next patient. She wasted very little time once I was in the room and she booked me for surgery as soon as I could be fit in.
I've had Dr. Wakim for 2 pregnancies as well as other obstetrician related procedures. She's warm and open, to the point, but takes the time to hear you out. She is very knowledgeable and we usually have a few laughs along the way. Wait times are not good, although they have improved a lot within the 10 years I've seen her.
I absolutely adore Dr. Wakim. I have had her for 2 pregnancies & each time was able to ask her ANY questions without feeling foolish & getting straight, clear cut answers. She listens to my concerns & does any extra testing deemed necessary. She is down to earth & definitely worth the sometimes long wait. I never feel rushed with her & she is very caring & professional. Her staff/ receptionists are wonderful too. I specifically asked for her for both pregnancies & have NEVER regretted it at all. Keep up the great work!!!
I had a miscarriage at 11weeks pregnant. Went to the ER at grand river. Dealt with my family doctor for the next 3 weeks for weekly blood work and ultra sounds but was called back to Grand River Early Pregnancy unit for a follow up at 4weeks with Dr Wakim. (when my family doctor happened to be away for a week). Dr Wakim prescribed me misoprostol rather than having a D & C to clear the contents of my uterus. The misoprostol caused me to nearly bleed out and ended up going to the ER again but this time by ambulance. I then spent 3 days in the hospital and ended up having a D & C anyway on the 2nd night! The ER doctor said I had been too far along for misoprostol to work which caused me to just continually bleed and go through a day of agony. No pain, but fainting literally anytime I got up which is why I went to the hospital via ambulance. To top it all off, a week after being released from the hospital, Dr Wakim forced me to go to her office for my, say, 10th round of blood work meanwhile I had been going to life labs via my family doctor for the past 9times. Meanwhile my family doctor was not done sending me for blood work. Dr Wakim was just trying to take over for her own personal gain. Dr Wakim's staff were rude and cold both in person and over the phone. The one time Dr Wakim took my blood she left me sitting in the chair, no bandaid to stop bleeding ect. Life labs does a better job than her. Dr Wakim even had the nerve to say "your family doctor wasn't doing anything about your miscarriage." My doctor then informed me she only prescribes it to people if they want a trip to the emergency room. Dr Wakim booked me for a 2nd blood work appointment which I chose not to go to. I hope I do not end up with her in the hospital to deliver my baby in January 2018. I do not trust her judgement.
