Ratings for Dr. Blair Hrabarchuk
My mother just finished her appointment with him after waiting for months to get in. She had previously had bronchial/asthma issues, which were not resolved with any bronchial/ puffer medications prescribed by her family doctor. Then, about a month and half before she was to see this guy, her ankles and legs were swelling up and she cannot go up and down stairs for lack of breath. Well, any idiot can tell she's having heart problems, since all the bronchial treatments are not working and now fluid pooling in her lower legs. Well, she finally gets in to see him and he does: NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. He just says to her that she must be having some inflammatory issues due to her bronchitis issues. She has NEVER had bronchitis for over 8 months with such alarming symptoms! Didn't do any tests or prescribe anything to help her heart pump better - NOTHING. Just sent her on her way. Well, I will be demanding she see a real cardiologist. Don't waste your time waiting for this guy - HE IS USELESS. If I could give no stars, I would.
Very good doctor I suffered for three years and he diagnosed me treated me and made sure it was working. I don't care what he does in his down time . He should get to let lose after devoting his life to treating and curing his patients. If you question his intelligence then yes he is not going to be friendly . His job is to treat you not be your best friend , I want a smart doctor not a friendly one if it concerns my health also he was very friendly to me .
Excellent doctor and person. He made the correct diagnosis the first time he saw me when many doctors could not. Started me on meds and kept trying different ones. Also cares about my mental health very much and follows up with me personally, weekly. I don't know what I would do without him. Great, knowledgeable and caring person.
I am not sure why others who have reviewed Dr. Hrabarchuk said he was not that good. I found him very personable, knowledgeable, and caring. He joked and made me feel very comfortable when I really do not like doctors. I would recommend him for others. I hope to not have to see him ever again at least not as a doctor for a very long time as I know I am healthy and we know my heart is good now. So anyone who says he is not a good doctor for female patients, I will disagree all the way as I said he was great with me.
Dr. was very polite, positive and reassuring that I could be helped with my Rheumatoid Arthritis which I suffer from. I like the follow up appointments that the Dr. had me come back to keep track of how the medication was working and how I was feeling. GREAT JOB!!!!
I suffered heart damage after Dr. H. responded to my ER visits for chest pain, saying, "You're in your 40's, a non-smoker, not obese and you're a woman. You have reflux or anxiety." I know how heartburn feels and this was not it. I also had abnormal ekg's and when I questioned that, he said, "some people just have abnormal ekgs!!" even though they had changed from previous ones and my family doctor was concerned. I subsequently ignored my chest pain on many occassions and after suffering intense fatigue, requested my doctor send me to a "real" cardiologist. He ordered an echocardiogram which showed in the past I had suffered left ventricular damage. So, if you are a younger woman, avoid this guy like the plague. He doesn't believe women and I have heard this from numerous patients recently. Request that a reputable cardiologist assess your case or else you'll end up with heart damage and reduced quality of life as I have.
