Ratings for Dr. Krishan K. Sachdeva
Horrible bed side manner. My Father had emergency surgery at LHO as he could not pass urine and was bleeding. Sachdeva was on call. I waited outside the OR for update on my Dad. It was midnight on a Saturday. Nobody but me I’m waiting room. Sachdeva can out. Told me surgery done and tumour removed. I was clearly shaken by the whole ordeal and I asked when we would know if it was cancer. He stood in front of me and yelled, I told you it’s a tumour that means it’s cancer! I almost collapsed. One of the most horrific moments of my life. I feel my Dad would still be here today if another Dr had of been on call.
Although my experience with Dr. Sachdeva was fantastic, I can understand why there is some negativity in these reviews. It is my belief that many people do not understand his professionalism. When he is at work, he is at work - and he does a fine job. It is likely that many of his patients have had abnormally long wait times as I did as well. But I am grateful I waited and got to see him. He took his time with me and provided great care, and I suspect he does this with all his patients (hence the long wait times). You must do *exactly* what he says when it comes to your recovery. It may be uncomfortable, it may be unpleasant and he may be blunt... but it really is for the best.
I am a nurse who has happened to take care of his patients and deal with him personally. I cannot stress enough......DO NOT GO TO THIS SURGEON!!! I know of several people that he has screwed up on so horribly that they have lost their lives as a direct result of his poor skills and lack of care. He is old and not skilled, made too many mistakes and has the worst bedside manner I have seen in a long time. This man should be in jail and not practicing medicine. If you value your life go to someone else.
This “doctor” was inside me 4 times and managed to misdiagnose bladder cancer for 14 straight months! At Princess Margaret the first question asked was why it had been left so long. Not only is he rude, arrogant, and non communicative, but as a doctor he is a failure. He needs to take up another profession. Now! His office staff should follow him!
Dr. Sachdevea is an expert in his field and he does care about his patients, although the administrative practices in his office are not very professional. I received a half finished voicemail on my home answering machine, on a Friday evening with an incomplete message indicating I had been booked for surgery on the following Monday. Not very helpful to those of us who have employers who need you book a day off ahead of time. I had been waiting to hear the date for 3 months and then I am given 2 hour notice. I had to find out from the hospital at 7 a.m. that morning that I was indeed booked in and needed to be there within hours. When mentioned to Debbie at his office, she was rude and said "oh well, there are many other people I could have put in". The office could benefit from more professional booking methods.
"Bedside manner serious hinderence to his professional care giving, not looking forward to visit downright rude, looking for alternative in area" my comments exactly. I did end up getting my GP to refer me to Dr. T. Morton who I feel is excellent.
