Ratings for Dr. Murray Hamada
I would give it minus stars if I could. Unless you are dying and can't help it DO NOT GO HERE! The staff is extremely rude and unprofessional. If they don't know an answer to your question they hang up the phone on you. They don't give you a chance to talk and talk over you. You are always put in hold when calling and when they do pick up they are UNPROFESSIONAL and RUDE!! We paid for a service over a week ago and it is a nightmare receiving the product from them. IF YOU FEEL LIKE HAVING A REALLY BAD DAY THEN DEAL WITH EMERGIMED CLIFFSIDE, they WILL turn any good day in to a bad one!
Dr. Hamada wanted me to take a lot of medication. I took it and I wasn't feeling well. I went to another doctor to get another opinion... the second doctor looked at my test results and ordered one extra test. He felt that based on my past test reults and the new test he gave me, the second doctor felt that meds was not the first course of action. I am doing much better off the meds on following the treatment advice of the second doctor. In my opinion, Dr. Hamada seems to stress medicine and not other treatments... for example he never told me to lose weight.. he never weighed me... he gave me a huge lecture about needing medication. The symptoms he was treating with numerous meds are now all improved without the meds following the other doctors treatment plan.
He was the attending physician for my grandmother while at Holy Name Hospital. He was awful. He is frequently confused by both patient status and proper diagnosis. He has twice given false diagnoses even after speaking with specialists. He missed my grandmother's stroke while in the hospital and gave her blood thinners without monitoring her internal bleeding. She almost died. Even after neurologist diagnosed her with a stroke, he refused to acknowledge it for almost a week. Then he treated her for pneumonia she didn't have. He only calls back when you threaten legal action and his staff is alternating apologetic and rude. We had him removed from her case. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to him.
Wait is always at least an hour. Couple of his staff are rude, but nothing unusual from the norm. Dr. Hamada started falling asleep while meeting with him to diagnose my condition (this occurred in couple of instances). He is obviously not sleeping enough and staying alert which should be concerning to all of his patients. He seems knowledgeable, but hard to tell since he doesn't explain thoroughly. He has asked me about my education back ground and have told him that I have an engineering degree, yet he speaks to me as if I'm a 5 year old. Every time I go see him, he has no idea who I am nor recalls any of the details of my diagnosis. I'm now looking for a new cardiologist.
