Have never been treated so horribly in my life. In his office he told me to stop talking and shut my mouth when I tried to explain my symptoms. He said he will be doing the talking. I left the office in tears. Went to Regina to get help and a diagnosis on my bowel issues.
When blood was found in my husbands test, Dr Sheikh told him he needed a colonoscopy right away. The hospital staff tried to call him once on his cell phone to make that appointment and then put it aside. One month later I dragged him in to see why he wasn't scheduled and they said, "Oh that one is marked Urgent, but we called your cell phone once & you didn't answer. My husband works heavy equipment & can't hear a cell phone, and they didn't try to call our home. They then set the colonoscopy right away and Dr. Sheikh found a small cancer. He got my husband in the very next day for CT in Regina! He gave us options for surgery and we chose him. He did an excellent job, was very caring and my husband is doing well because of him! Can't say enough good about him! Very little pain, no complications and back on his feet in no time! A staff member who would put an urgent file aside for a month however, would get a 0 from me! This was not his office staff, but in a different area of the hospital.
Didnt listen to my previous history with my condition just told me that the particular procedure my family physician wanted for me was not common for my age group!! so what about my age group, everything should be assessed case specifically!!! I was outraged! Instead he sent me with a presciption for something completely opposite of what my symptoms were. Needless to say my physician is referring me on elsewhere.
After undergoing test he tells me that my problem can be controlled with medication, i asked for it to be fixed with surgery because the meds are over 2000 a year and he tells me they do not do that surgery any more. Meanwhile 2 friends of mine get that surgery i need done in other arears of sask. Unfortunatly i get refered to him for a carpotunnel syndrom. I go and take the tests in regina as he wanted and the results are severe carpo in both wrists. It has now been 3 months and still no appointment with him even after i called twice asking about results. This doctor is only concerned about the number of people he can run through his office in a day, no concern for his patients.
My husband had to get a scope down his throat and he was told he had very bad gagging. He gave him a sedative and he didn't even feel it. Then he starts shoving the scope down his throat, only gets to his adams apple and stops b.c. his gaging was too much and said he was very busy and wasn't going to try again... what a waste of a day and i think someones health is more important then you worrying about being busy.
I had to make multiple appointments to see him to check out a lump. He changed his mind on what to do with each appoinment, finally I just said I want it removed. He removed the lump from my leg and left the most horrific scar which was totally unnecessary. I am not the most vain person out there by far but it is horribly ugly and has made me subconcious. This also happened to a friend of mine who had one removed from her neck. The scarring was so bad and so visible she ended up having to see a plastic surgeon to try to fix it.
I have seen now three doctors for the same problem that has been reacurring for almost two years now. This is one doctor who feels that he knows it all and doesn't take the time to assess each patient as individuals. Telling you that you are alright even if you are not. We as patients do not want to hear that everything is alright when we are sitting there in pain and have been in pain, running the same bloody tests the last doctor ran. If that had been the problem I wouldn't have had to be referred to this doctor in the first place. I would have stayed with my original doctor who actually cared about how I was feeling. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone that has a heart and needs compassion from their doctor!
What an awesome Doctor ... would trust him with my life. I had an operation in a larger center and ended up with sever infection (not blaming anyone) My family Dr. recommended Mr. Sheikh ... and I am so glad!!!!! Estevan is damn lucky to have him.
Dr Sheikh is a champion for the health care in Estevan. Dr Sheikh saved me from the malpractice of another Doctor. He is a straight shooter. When I left Estevan over a year ago I have found that finding a Doctor/general surgeon here in Saskatoon of his skill and above average care is hard. All I have left to say is "Estevan look after him he an outstanding citizen and you will be hard pressed to replace Dr. Sheikh.
