Ratings for Dr. Margaret Haddad
I'm frankly surprised to see the poor ratings of Dr. Haddad, who has been my personal GP for 10+ years. I find her thorough, helpful and knowledgeable. If I need an appointment, I can get in to see her typically in less than a week, and often with a business day or two.I don't beleive she's ever run more than 20 or so minutes behind schedule (a dream in Toronto!). To achieve this, she runs a "tight ship" and often will not be "chatty" if she has a busy day of patient bookings. That's okay with me. I don't see her as a therapist, and I'm not looking for a new best friend and I don't come to socialize. That said, I've never felt rushed and when I've asked for more details or raised questions, she has always spent the time to make me understand. I've recommended her to other friends too.
She is a wonderful doctor. Very smart, knowledgeable and gets to the root of any medical issue. She's been an amazing help to my health over the years and caught a couple of issues very quickly. She is direct, but in a good way; she gets to the point and gets the job done (or makes sure you get tests or to a specialist when needed). Very thankful to have her as my GP.
She may be suffering from depression. Blank stare and no emotions. Very sad. Have kept away for years because I feel very uncomfortable and nervous to see her. Always felt rushed and as though she regrets her profession. She looks miserable and not happy at all. She missed a very serious problem with my young child and now it's too late to correct. I regret not going to a pediatrition. I have to live with this every day. I do hope that she is not suffering from mental illness and pushing herself to work. There are many out there that function with depression and hide it. I hope she looks after herself before others.
I have been seeing Dr. Haddad for many years, and have referred many friends to her. She's supportive, kind, personable, thorough and really cares about her patients. She also has a great sense of humour and bedside manner. I never feel self-conscious around her, and feel comfortable asking her everything and anything. My friend's teenage son feels the same way. I am grateful and consider myself lucky to have such an amazing doctor.
I have been going to her for 25 years. I have both my young adult kids going to her as well. She has been very thorough and we will continue going to her. While sitting in the waiting area we see her dealing with some patients prior when they are leaving, and boy I can understand her lack of patience with some of these people, they obviously have mental health issues. This last time she was able to refer my daughter to a surgeon and get the appt all in one week! The emergency dept said we would have to wait months just for the appt.
Very disappointed with her. She used to be inconsistent, moody but adequate many years ago, but the quality of care for myself and my family has gone continually downhill over the years, so much that we are all looking for a new family physician. My son's care was so poor, that he was very sick for over three months and eventually hospitalized, had to forfeit a semester of high school, because she refused to look at anything else other that a "flu" as to what was making him so sick. The doctor that finally found what was wrong with my son was disgusted that more tests weren't done much earlier. We are so done with her.
