Dr. Nilanga Fernando. Do not use his services, this man should not be a doctor. A complete a-hole, I'm surprised he's allowed to practice.

Total a hole, saw him at WGH today and was shocked to see him still employed. I was under his care years ago, he diagnoses everyone as bipolar, he's rude, arrogant and and offers no counselling whatsoever. Avoid this man like the plague.

It is very sad to read these posts about this arrogant, foolish Doctor. My surprise is nobody wants to take action. May be he is not qualified in medical practice. May be he has a fake degree from Somalia. He keeps on going and giving bad diagnosis to Canadians. We had a Doctor from Somalia like him and together we took a class action lawsuit and won the case easily. Some members got as much as $100,000 dollars. You should take action and send him back to Somalia where he came from.

A poor listener. Lacks compassion. Unable to admit his own errors (or lack of knowledge). His giggles and smirks during appointments do little to make the patient feel at ease. His total demeanor is one that downplays the seriousness of his patient's condition while communicating how "brilliant" he finds himself to be. Run in the opposite direction from this guy.

This doctor is intellectually lazy. 18 years ago, when I was a depressed 15 year old girl, he tried to diagnose me with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder, recommending heavy medication. Thank goodness my parents demanded a second opinion from another doctor, who said that I was having a normal reaction to a very stressful situation and referred me to a brilliant and helpful therapist. I am a sensitive and empathic person which isn't easy, however, I've learned many skills to cope and have remained medication-free. In my 30's I am a healthy, empowered, successful business owner.....things could have taken a very different path had I followed his treatment plan, been heavily medicated and given all my power away.

Dr. Fernando attempted to overmedicate me regardless of my sensitivity. When I refused to take what he prescribed he threatened me with a Form 3, even though I had compromised and taken one of the medications he offered. I had a severe reaction to what I took, as I told him I would. Dr. Fernando is dismissive, arrogant, condescending and a bully.
