Ratings for Dr. Dan McGillivray
Here I am in the waiting room waiting and waiting for the chronically overbooked Dr McGillivray. I would love to see what he bills OHIP since the philosophy is clearly to squeeze in as many patients as he can bill with most of the patient time being spent either waiting (and waiting) or with one of the technologists. The receptionist is not at all helpful preferring to spend most of her time on the phone making anyone trying to schedule another appointment wait. This won't be me as I intend to look for another doctor - even Oakville would be faster than this!
i phoned the office to re-book an appt...the receptionist was insensitive,curt and bordered on rudeness.I work in health care and have for almost 30 years and would never speak to any of my clients on the phone the way she did.Incredible!No empathy,or professionalism demonstrated by this worker.Perhaps she was having a bad day??????
I will be getting another doctor after today. Every time I come here I have had an excessive wait once as long as three hours! Today my appointment was originally for noon, however the office called me up and asked me to come in 45 minutes earlier, which I did. Not only was the doctor late for the new appointment time, he was also over half an hour late compared to the original appointment time. He has no respect for the value of my time.
professional attitude and excellent, personal, friendly manner for those of us dealing with vision problems which makes us worried and anxious. The procedure for cataracts is amazing, painfree and extraordinary results. This requires an atmosphere of concern and sensitivity to patients which is definitely evidenced by the Doctor and his staff.
Dr. McGillivray performed cataract surgery on me last September and left me with very little perifial vision. I called him numerous times to which he said I would have to live with it. he was going to do my other eye but WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING at it he said it was not necessary yet. I had seen another surgeon 2 days before that that said I needed the right eye done now and that my eye that Dr McGillivray did had scaring. His room is always overflowing as he must triple book patients and this does not give him the proper time to do his job instead of guessing how you are without even looking at you.
After going to emergency and being referred to Dr. McGillivray for as he called it a rip roaring cornea infection in both eyes on Labour Day weekend he not only saw me the next day, the day after and the day after that and then every 3 days until it cleared. The office was not open to the general public a few of the days but he was in there seeing me during the holiday weekend. I have the utmost respect and am very grateful that he was there at this stressful time. If I ever need this type of specialist again...it will be him! The best doctor ever!
Dr. McGillivary is a very kind and knowledgeable in his field. His wait times are super, as he has all the latest equipment at his disposal and you can go to have other eye tests right in the building. He takes the time to answer all the questions I have; treats me as an educated individual with options, no 'god complex' here! He is positive and reassuring, but honest. There isn't much he can do about my condition, but I had been complaining that there was something wrong with my eye for a couple of years, and not even my neurologist could find it, and Dr. McGillivary did. And, as an aside, because this really doesn't tell much about his medical knowledge, but is reflective of his professionalism and attention to detail: the doc is an amazing dresser! ;) Thank you Dr. McGillivary, and I hope that those mentioned in these lists read their comments, and either learn from them, or enjoy the recommendations. Remember that patients pay taxes, and thus salaries, and have a right to quality.
