Ratings for Dr. S. Aboobaker
I can hardly believe this very busy and helpful doctor receives negative ratings from anyone. He is very busy, very knowledgeable and always provided accurate guidance and assistance during my visits. Both my mother, who is in her 80s and I (both females) have been to see this professional, several times, at the Walk In Clinic. He has always 'saved' us from what was occurring. This doctor is very thorough and actually believes what you are saying. I am very grateful to him and he is highly recommended.
If you go to this Doctor, sit there, keep your mouth shut and only speak when spoken to!! He actually bans patients from his clinic when they ask questions regarding treatment, express their opinions, etc. He is extremely touchy and rude, and in my opinion should be punished by the College of Physicians and Surgeons from banning patients (especially females - I know of 3 including myself. how common is that?)when they have no other access to healthcare other than to go and use an emergency room improperly for non-emergencies. Like the nerve of this man is utterly unbeleivable. I went to see him, not knowing I had been banned, and was told my file had been removed from the clinic. So where did it go? The receptionist literally couldn't find my file. Isn't that illegal? What if another Doctor needed it?! I think he just shredded it.
I was perscribed an antibiotic I didn't need and I told him i was 4 months pregnant and asked if it was nessary. he kept making unnessary comments about how i was looking too small to be pregnant (my obgyn says i measure perfect) the pharmasist was more helpful and knowledgeable.
Dr. Aboobaker takes his time with his patients, and makes them feel like human beings and not just another patient. But this may also be the reason for his punctuality being poor. I have always had to wait lengthy waits even with an appointment time. If your appointment is at 4pm, you should be soon within the 1/2 hour max. not an hour and a half later. There was one day I had an appointment early in the morning and he didn't show up for an hour after I had been sitting there.
After a couple of appointments of waiting an hour past my scheduled time I found out he regularly comes in late. I had the first appointment of the day at 9 a.m. and he still wasn't there when I left at 10 a.m. I think this is very rude to routinely keep patients waiting.
Dr. Aboobaker is the best doctor I have seen in many years. He is kind, he listens to what I have to say and gives common sense and practical advice and treatment. It is refreshing that I never have to wait more than a day to get in to see him and I have never waited more than 1/2 an hour in his waiting room. If he is ever going to start taking regular patients, I want to be first in line. Selkirk is fortunate to have him.
Dr.Aboobaker is one of the best doctors I`ve come across in 43 years. He is a very caring and compassionate man who works endless hours so no one goes without medical attention. He is very considerate to all his patients needs. He takes care of thousands of people in Selkirk who otherwise don`t have a physician. I myself wish there was more doctors like him. Nowadays, doctors only seem to care about how many patients they can see in a day and how many percriptions they can fill. He also doesn`t have a time limit (5-10 minutes) or only one question per visit. I have a regular doctor who has overlooked some of my test results, but he took the time to properley read them and proceeded to contact me for a change of medication. I didn`t hear a word from my family doctor, I guess it was overlooked. Thank-you Dr. Aboobaker for making a difference for me and thousands of others lives,especially from a medical point of view. THANKS, Sincerley Kim P.
