Ratings for Dr. Paul Chiu
5 - Staff are polite and willing to listen. They do an excellent job at the clinic. 4 - Wish I can be seen sooner than later but just very busy. 5 - He's helpful by going the extra mile to try every option in treating me. 4 - Smart as a doctor would be but not like a specialist. Sometimes would just have to see the specialist instead.
Yes he is a nice individual with a decent bedside manner however his knowledge is sorely lacking to the point where it can put you in immense long-term discomfort if you do not push him to get tests done or if you do not seek medical attention elsewhere.
Dr. Paul Chiu is a wonderful family doctor so I do not understand why there aren't a lot good reviews or where those bad reviews come from. He is caring of my needs and his staff are very nice. The whole team work together well and helped me a lot all these years. I'm grateful for every outstanding job and appreciate their efforts. He personally called me about my test results. Ensures that all your concerns are addressed during your appointment. Mostly punctual but the overall visit is satisfying. He is not only a very skilled doctor in Western medicine but also knowledgeable in Chinese medicine. He has treated my parents to live healthy lives and I can't thank him enough. My whole family feels taken care of. So I highly recommend him and his services to others since there are great things to be said about. Lucky he is still working .
Agree with much of the comments below. Going to be looking for a new doctor pretty soon but he was a good doctor for when I had him. At some point though someone more knowledgable might be worth looking into as someone's well being might depend on it.
I see him cause my family sees him. They think he's good with all his experience. I don't get sick often, but the times I do go to the clinic I think he does a great job. He gets straight to the problem first, chats with me (listens and gives me info I could use and such), and would follow up on my past issues. More thorough then some doctors at the med-centre. Sometimes I wished he would work more but he's getting old. It's hard for me to take time off from work so when I do get to see him it does take a while. And then I just found out that he works on Saturdays. Pfft! If the staff told me that earlier I would have came on that day. He's got new help, and it does speed things up.
I took few times half day off to see him for acute pain in the lower abdomen, he suggested me to take Vitamin D, until one day , I had severe pain and went to emergency room, the doctor asked few questions then immediately give me urine filter, and found I was passing kidney stone.
I live in Calgary but I come back to Edmonton to do my annual physical checkup. The staff had called me to tell me that they've moved. I went to their new clinic, and I was greeted by very friendly staff the moment I walked in the door. I had an appointment made so I was seen pretty quickly even though the clinic was full of patients. I could see that they were busy so I did have to wait a bit obviously. My experience was great! I got helpful advice and got many questions answered by my doctor. He was listening to all my questions and he even shared his own experiences with me too. He's polite and respectful. I remember he was willing to make time to see my mother even though he was booked completely full. His expertise matched his many years of service since I have been seeing him since I was a kid. I do miss the old clinic; it was like a second home to me. And the staff are new; they were very professional and reminded me to fast for my blood tests. So overall, I will definitely go there again.
So bad. My mom with little education and can barely speak enough English to survive saw this doctor over 10 visits that one year complaining of stomach pains and only got prescription medication for her pain, finally bled into the toilet. It was only because of an E.R. doctor that we found her cancer. The E.R. doctor then had her see several specialists to determine the location and severity of the cancer. The cancer had reached stage 4 by then. Doctors said she only had about 6 months to live. Saw a whole bunch of different doctors after that.
The worst Dr. ever. With Eng as our 2nd lang, our family had him as our family Dr. for many years. No one in our family see him anymore and very rightlyfully so. He didn't send my g'ma in for a mammogram until she was 72. luckily she's healthy in that aspect but 30 years too late? Also, i had a really bad sinus infection and he told me to stop picking my nose.
