Ratings for Dr. Paul Pashniak
Dr. Pashniak is wonderful however the problem is with the clinic staff. They are very rude and abrupt - unfortunate to have a staff like that when you are working with the public and often people who are unwell. I would suggest the office staff take some courses on how to be pleasant.
Dr Pashniak is hard to ever see. There becomes a fine line between quality care and annoyance! Impossible to see him but hes seems to feel fine that his patients must see another Dr in the practice as part of a 'team'. I would sure like to have continuity of care as we used to with him. Quite a shame
Like Dr. Pashniak. Great family doctor. He is knowledgeable and thorough, and explains well. He has set rules now that have changed over the year. Patients cannot book physical exams more than three months in advance is ludicrous. We need an alarm to "remind" us to call his office. As well, during this exam, I told him my back and foot pain has caused me to reduce my physical activity. What does he do but prescribe I walk a minimum number of steps per day! He heard me but did not listen. No excuses that he has a young newborn.
Staff is fine but typical of the medical system, in Alberta, they make you feel like you should be happy to be getting any service. I typically wait an hour past my scheduled time to get in but when I get in I have always found Dr. Pashniak to be friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. It is very tough to get his time as he seems to have many other commitments. That being said, I am sticking with him because there is more positive then negative.
Dr. Pashniak has been lured to the dark side. He has changed his practice to for profit PRIVATE practice in Calgary. As a result he ditched all his existing patients currently covered by AHC. Our health care system sucks! More so, where is this doctors morals? Karma...
