Ratings for Dr. S Karmali
Dr. Karmali used to be my doctor in Kitchener. I'm not sure what happened but she's no longer my doctor and I had to get a new one but when she was my doctor she was so nice and honestly the best doctor I've had. She knew what she was doing, she was patient and listened, and was just overall a great doctor.
She intentionally schedules appts every 10 minutes for 1 hour before she shows up so she is guaranteed to be at least 1 hour backlogged all the time. Office staff is rude and uncooperative. Office is dim, dirty, and stinky. It is worse to be a paitent with karmali than to have no doctor at all. At least then, I could go on a waiting list for a real doctor.
Dr. Karmali's staff has improved, but the wait time is rediculous. Wait times are too logn due to poor scheduling. You wait over an hour to be seen only to be rushed when you see her.. and when she does call you, she does not even read the chart before hand, so she has no clue who you are or why you are there, even if she was the one who called you in to see her for test results.Once she is in with you, Dr. Karmali stands hovering over you, rushing you to spit out your symptoms just so she can write you a prescription and hurry you out the door. I get better service at the local clinic.
The only thing I like about that place now is that the front staff has changed. They are a lot better. More friendly and seem to be more organized then the last staff. But still the wait time is horrible, Karmali just pushes you out as fast as she can. She does not care to here what is going on. There should be a limit to how many ppl she is allowed to service in a day. Hope it changes soon.
It says to please enter a comment about this doctor.. i would rather not cause what i have to say about the wait time with her is not good. If i could easily get another doctor I would but there is such a shortage. She really needs to stop double booking her patients and start listening to our needs a little more. Over all she is a nice lady.. Just seems like we are a bother to her. So why be in this career if she is going to treat us like that. I wish she would look at this and smarten up a bit.
horrible waiting in this office. This doctor has appointments booked from 8am, and every single time i've gone in there for my 830am appt. she's never ever been there yet. SHe usually comes in anywhere around 930 am, which in turn makes everyone suffer. Once in the exam room, you're so rushed that you come out actually unsure if you've even been listened to!! Nice enough lady, but horrible experiences all around, and the one time i brought one of my 4 sons, she came right out and said he was obese.....he's 10, and i was crushed for him, and angry myself. He's nowhere near obese too. NOT GOOD
I inherited Dr.karmali due to Dr.Fatah's retirment.Now Dr.Fatah that was a doctor friendly knew ur name as soon as u walked in and was very knowledgable, he diagnosed my sister with a rare case of the mumps after no one else could. Now i have a doctor i have been with since she started her practice and she could'nt tell u my name if she read it of the file that would probably be incorrect anyway. The wait times r brutal, so many times i would have to leave and reshedual appts after sitting for an hour and a half. She also almost killed my grandfather by giving him heart pills that if mixed with his other medication would have surely hurt him and his body. She has had a "new patient" sign up form for years, "Really how many patients does this woman have?" I hope that some one will read this and maybe investigate her for poor care, rediculous pricing,poor organization and max of patient registration. Is there not some sort of rules for doctors to follow.?
