Ratings for Dr. Sukhdev Gill
I am a manager of a group home for disabled adults who have Dr. Gill as their doctor. The ONLY reason this man continues to be their doctor is because Dr. Gill is able to make house visits and these individuals are unable to go to a clinic in the community. He is rude, he doesn't even look at his patients, he makes questionable prescriptions (ie - changing a prescription for a man with possible obstructed colon from 1 teaspoon of Metamucil to TWELVE teaspoons - and no, that is not a typo!!). The gentlemen that are in my care may be non-verbal but that doesn't mean their medical needs are a waste of his time. Neither he nor his staff followed up on labwork that showed a serious problem until two months later after I had made almost half a dozen calls. Horrible doctor all around.
Dr. Gill is a real piece of work.... my brother is a patient as he was the only Dr. taking on new patients. My brother had gone to the walk in clinic about a giant hole in his toe which the clinic was very worried about and felt it could be flesh eating. His test results were to be sent to his "family" Dr. for follow up. When my brother had his apt with Dr. Gill the a-hole of a Dr. did NOT tell my brother his test results, did NOT LOOK AT THE TOE - NOTHING....... just handed him a prescription for pills. My mom had gone to the apt and when she tried to ask questions Dr. Gill refused to answer, got EXTREMELY short with her and without saying good bye or anything just got up and left the room. My brother has gone back two more times and Dr. Gill is still yet to actually exam the toe. Turns out he has a severe MRSA infection and Dr. Gill simply handed him more pills without saying what they are. VERY VERY VERY RUDE, IGNORANT A HOLE. I go to an amazing family Dr. who is well known and very liked - he is very quick and to the point as well as some have said here: however, he does it in a way that shows care and concern. He doesn't make you feel like dirt for asking a question. HE HAS A HEART. You can be quick and to the point and still be a human being.
Quick to the point and thorough. Never had a problem in 26+ years of visits. Knowledgable and correct in diagnosis and treatment. Lucky to have such an excellent physician in Aldergrove!!!
Dr. Gill I visited Gill with my 92 year old Grandpa, to advocate for my grandpa, especially because my grandpa's hearing is very poor. We came to ask about allergy testing, Dr. Gill said that he didn't need testing and quickly prescribed a nasal spray, as he felt it was not allergies. Sit, talk, prescribe, and out the door. I still have the boot print on my back side. First, I understand that doctors are often overworked, and hence in a hurry. However, when someone comes to a doctor they are usually sick (duh) in pain, (duh), emotionally distressed (duh) and therefore some empathy and communicating to the patient in some way that you care is VITAL. If a doctor is having a rough day, at the least pretend or act as if you care. Let's list some pros and cons. Cons - rude - lacks compassion or empathy (which is vital in this profession where people are physically and emotionally unwell) plus... empathy goes a long way in having healthy relationships with everyone else in the world - interrupts and does not take time to really listen and understand the problem - argumentative/ condescending when I suggested allergy testing and did not let me finish explaining how serious my grandpa's condition was - no social greeting - not willing to collaborate or be open to suggestions outside of his practice/ knowledge Positives - was on time - has some knowledge for sure - hmmmmmmm..... still thinking.......... I am trying to understand why a doctor would act so rude and make us feel like we were brushed off. If there is something in his personal life that is affecting his work, then as a patient, I would advise him to take some time off. Even doctors get sick and need help! Everyone else, I advise you to search for another doctor by talking with friends, colleagues, or families. It is far more worth it to find a fantastic doctor that is 30-60 minutes away rather than settle for a mediocre/unhelpful one that is 10 minutes away from home. This is your health and you deserve the best care!
What do you expect? How else is going to make his $800000-999000 yearly as listed in the MSP Financial Statement other than see a boat load of patients as fast as possible? He's got bills too. So keep it short and sweet, don't ask more than 2 questions. If you need empathy, go elsewhere. He's all about the $$.FYI, he makes more than the three times average general practioner but is 1/3 as good .
