Ratings for Dr. Antonio Benitez-Gomez
The most aggressively rude doctor I’ve ever encountered, regardless of whether you are friendly and polite. Does not listen to the patient’s symptoms. Is a very angry person who has no problem acting out on patients. Both myself and my partner on two distantly separate occasions experienced this bully! Enjoyed inflicting pain with my broken foot! He should be forced to retire from medical practice regardless of the need for doctor’s in this province.
Very caring and intelligent doctor. I would recommend him to any family or friends.
Good doctor. He folllowed up with my pretty usual very mild blood work result on the phone after my appointment, as a walk in doctor. I only swiped my care card with this doctor once, and I felt lucky to get premium care as a first time walk in patient. For 99% of the doctors I saw, they only gave you enough time after you have swiped CareCard with them multiple times. So he took his time to read patients blood work result, so if something arises, he would call you. A very responsible doctor! Considering the goods inflation and the family physicians’ low pay scale, he is still doing what should be done~. I am very happy. Yes, he did make a fuss with my inquiry, but I am okay with that because he was just taking his own precious time educating me of what’s going on, still better than those “only care to swipe your CareCard type of doctor”. Yes, I came out of the room with more medical knowledge and I was happy.
Not impressed. Another Dr. in clinic prescribed Blood Pressure pills 3 months ago. Needed a new prescription from this Dr. (I use the term loosely) and explained my issues. Would not do it and advised to see my personal Dr. I explained she was not available for two weeks. Gave me lecture about BP not cureable and I would have it until I died. Explained how I should take my own BP - both feet on ground, back supported etc. Finally he did took my BP with my feet dangling from the medical bed and no back rest?? Said it was high and to come back and see him in two weeks. Not sure why he wanted to see me as he was not prepared to give me medication. Left frustrated with BP higher than when I went in. Too bad BC has a Dr. shortage
The first thing you hear as this poor excuse for a doctor enters the room is quack quack quack. My daughter was having a lot of stomach issues and the nurse at 811 suggested that she ask the doctor for a referral to the dietician at Peace Arch Hospital for some help with diet. after waiting for quite a few months I asked the office manager what was happening and was told that there are no referrals if someone wants to lose weight. I don't know if there is a language problem or just a lack of intelligence problem but he certainly cannot handle even the simplest request. I shudder to think what could happen if one needed real medical care. Do not understand why he is allowed to see patients.
I thought IMPERSONATING a Doctor in Canada would be ILLEGAL!!!! Apparently NOT!! I had the GIANT MISFORTUNE of having to Face Down this BUBBLING, PUSTULATING, INGRATE, As he sits before me reading my Paperwork (Of which I have Copious Amounts, Complete with Detailed Diagnosis From Terrific Doctors over a 32 year treatment period.) I only wanted Meds, I'd been on for 15 Years, for "Heart-burn" and Frequent Urination and Anti-Seizure" Pretty Serious DRUG WAR!!! Stuff Huh??? Soooo DR. BOZO here began to Grunt, and Groan something under his breath. He starts "Literally" Quaking and Trembling. Then He jumps out of his chair (in a very Latino Lover Daytime Soap Star Manner.) And Screams in my Face "I DON'T BELIEVE A WORD........I'm going to LOOK YOU UP! I say "Go Ahead "NOTHING EXISTS!" In a couple of minutes (Smoke break I guess)..He cones "STORMING" into the room Screaming "I'm WITH HOLDING YOUR MEDS. DUE TO YOUR EXTENSIVE CRIMINAL RECORD!!!!!" That he had just Apparently just MADE UP!!! That makes this man A......whats that called again oh yea.....A LIAR. I suppose this also Brands Him as "INCOMPETENT, HOSTILE, UNPROFESSIONAL Not just UN-COMPASSIONATE But He"s Literally ANTI-COMPASSIONATE and a TRUE DISGRACE to the PROFESSION, not to mention a DANGER TO SOCIETY! Had I not been so darn Sick, and just went home....I wanted to get an RCMP Detective to come and I DEMAND you ARREST this IMPOSTOR. I truly feel sorry for Any One That has been"FOOLED" by This Creature of Medicine???? FROM Some of the other posts about this "TOOL" You will be JUST FINE....IF YOU JUST HAPPEN TO BE OF HIS APPROPRIATE "RACE"....BOY.....AS A FULL BLOODED CANADIAN, FULLY TRAINED AGAINST RACISM, BY A MAN WHO HAD JUST RETURNED with my UNCLES +FRIENDS.......FROM "KICKING HITLER'S BUTT"...... IT Truly HURTS ME!!! and DISGUSTS ME!! To even Have to SAY THIS!! THANKS IMPOSTOR!!! AS MY DAD "TURNS IN HIS GRAVE!"
He is the worse doctor I have ever dealt with. He never listen to me, he has not treated me for problems. I go to the walk in clinic and usually have more success in getting help. I have friends who feel the same, if he's working in the clinic, they wait until an other doctor replaces him.
Misdiagnosed me on two consecutive visits for scabies. I went to another doctor who immediately recognized the scabies (which was now advanced) and I received treatment. I went back to Gomez and he still denied me ever having scabies and chalked it down to dry skin!
