Ratings for Dr. P. Antoni Bekasiak
I have been with Dr. Bekasiak for a while now, as he was my mom's family doctor so I have been with him since I was little. I would NOT recommend him to anyone!!! I went in for test results as I had been having severe pain in my side. When he enters the room, he asks what I am there for (which he is my doctor, he should know without me having to tell him), so I said test results. He goes in my file and plainly stats I have Gall Stones, then asks me what I would like to do about it (me being 18 at the time). I simply ask what are my options, he then says see a specialist or just wait and see if they go away.. he then reads my file again and says "oh wait, it says you have multiple large stones.. maybe I should refer you to a specialist.." At this point I wanted to lol at him and say read the file again maybe our forgot something else. He gives me a paper for a specialist, tells me to call and set up an appointment whenever I want and then leaves. Didn't explain anything, and barely knew what he was doing. He needs his license taken or to retire!
I saw this doctor when i was having sharp chest pains and trouble breathing and he was very condescending and did not take me seriously at all. He suggested that maybe my BRA WAS TOO TIGHT. He is very unprofessional, unhelpful, and frankly a disgrace to the profession
I went to TMC with heart palpitations and difficulty beeathing knowing they had an EKG on site. When I arrived at 431pm I was told the Office with the EKG was closed. The doctor rushed me ahead of everyone and came into the room to "assess" me. He asked me if I have a history of heart or thyroid issues. I said no. He asked if anyone had taken my blood pressure? I told him no but that I had been at the midwife this morning and my BP was 110/70, I also stayed the issues with the palpitations weren't happening this morning. He recorded that as my BP and never bothered to check it at that time. He took out his stethoscope and listened to my heart. Asked me how far along I was in my pregnancy, told me my heart rate was erratic. He then told me right there without any investigation that I had Atrial Fibrillation and needed a beta blocker. He explained NOTHING to me and instead began harping on my weight. I asked him if I could take a beta blocker in pregnancy. At this point he decided to have me take myself to the hospital. I left to drive myself feeling scared and having heart palpitations. When in the ER the did blood work and 2 EKGs the first was normal and the second showed a PVC (extra or skipped beats in the heart) I was referred to a cardiologist for assessment and to wear a heart monitor. This doctor saw someone who was overweight and carelessly misdiagnosed them and would prescribed a medication not knowing the effects. Stay away from TMC doctors!
My experience with this DR leaves me thinking he needs to retire or get some anti-aging regiment going on for his career and personal life. Why? Because he seems to be very forgetful often, leaves important details off forms, and completely forgets to get your blood pressure, temperature measured especially for illnesses. Please DR, you dont have to retire because of this, but I think you need to rejuvenate your body/mind.
I have been seeing this Dr because my original retired. He would not of been my choice.After seeing a specialist for a thyroid disorder which I had to fight to get found out he put me into toxic shock twice nearly killing me.!! I wish there were more Doctors accepting patents i would of left long ago
I have been a patient with Dr.Bekasiak for a year. He has been the soul of compassion, kindness and understanding. I do not sit and wait for hours, as one does in most doctor's offices. He is a rare breed of physician...one who knows what he is doing and consults with the patient in every aspect of the treatment. I have had excellent physicians in Toronto, New England and New York, and he is right up there with them. All I can talk about is his treatment of me, and that has been first rate.
A friend of mine went to see this doctor due to chest pain. Instead of sending my friend to the hospital for some tests he prescribed him medication. My friend had a heart attack later that day and died. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to my worst enemy!
I have taken my 2 year old to see him twice the second time because he was my only option being open late on a Sunday. He looked at my baby told me that he would get over it by himself so I took him home, my son got sicker and sicker till I took him to a new clinic and was told that he had a severe ear infection & lung infection. dr.bekasiak didn't ever check my child's ears when we took him! He barley checked him over. I am so disappointed in the compassion of this doctor. I will never take him back again.
Don't know what everyone is talking about, this man is quite amazing and has been my doctor since I was a young boy. He's always taken care of me and is good on his appointment times. I've never felt rushed out of his office and never had an issue when it came to multiple problems. He's not a pediatric doctor and his practice is to use the least amount of medicine as possible, so if you want your child to be pampered and given medication go see a walk in doctor. People sometimes forget that doctors are also humans so don't treat them like an ant under a microscope.
