Ratings for Dr. Michael Promnitz
If my Mother had of listened to this man in 2001..I would be dead right now. How the _____ can you misdiagnose 2 consecutive strokes as "just an overreaction to a headache"....at age 5..... Pittiful. They called my parents and apologized after Sick Kids sent them the medical reports. (My mom took me there because she did not believe dr.promnitz's bs, but now that I am old enough to grasp it, I firmly believe he should lose his liscence. I would have died if my mom had listened to his words..
when my ADHD son was TAKEN by C.A.S & was sent to the McMaster hospital after having one of his violent moments while in the care of FOSTER CAR & they found out that my son was being beind given WAY to high dosage of his ADHD everyday medecin AND not dosed according to recommended dose/weight medical CHART that given to the pediaticians in charge of needing patients of that medicayion, my ADHD son was given by DR M Promnitz, unfortunatly, that's the main reason why my son was TAKEN away from ME by C.A.S. since MY SON'S medecation dosage was not monitored by his own mother & who was given a too high dosage by this SAME peadiatrician which me my son's medication & dosage & was prescribded by his own pediatrician (and under his own reccomodations) which was then precribed by that same Dr Micheal Promnitz! My son was then taken for exactly 50 Weeks, which the only thing they were able to fix was the dosage. HOW was I to know he was being prescribed & was being overdosed by his own peadiatrician, I have no medical knowledge, I was expecting that Dr to know the chart dosage/weight information according to the medecin for that specific medication! Thats not my job, but my son was still taken while being overdosed by a PRESCRIBED MEDICATION BY A PEDIATRICIAN! but yet I had to live without my son for 2 week short of 1YEAR because, "they said I should of known...WELL I DIDN'T OWN that chart but the padiatrician did...why did he! Why didn't HE use it?!? Didn't HE even look at it before prescribing it????????? Well thats only my opinion!!!
We took our 3 month old daughter to emergency 9 years ago they called Dr Promnitz in. He quickly did a spinal tap, blood test, x-rays, to find out what was wrong. We were extremely lucky to have Dr Promnitz since our kids were born in Cambridge and we just moved to Guelph. He took both of our kids in and has been heaven sent since. Can't thank him enough for looking after ours!
I was very lucky to have Dr. Promnitz assigned to our baby after giving birth in the hospital. We had only lived in Guelph for two months, so this was a big relief, as he agreed to take my son on as a patient, much to the chagrin of his admin woman. I got the impression at the time from the nurse in the hospital that he is an excellent, sought after pediatrician. She wasn't wrong. He is an excellent pediatrician who knows his stuff. He listens and offers doctor and parent advice, often relating it to his own situation. He never rushes us, and we always have all our questions answered. He does not over medicate or dole out prescriptions when not needed, and I feel he always puts my children's health first and foremost. He really knows how to interact with them, and they enjoy going to the doctor. My kids have been patients since 2006.
Love him! He was the 1st doctor to stop and pay attention.. Other doctors would just read what the chart said and nod and send us along our way.. He finally diagnosed my son with laryngomalacia after 14 other doctors/er trips ect didnt catch it. He also caught whooping cough when 3 other doctors said just a little cough.. but for someone with laryngomalacia, could be fatal.. We now see him 10 years later for my younger son and he remembered us after all these years!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!
