Ratings for Dr. Marek Smolarkiewicz
Some years ago, I had depression and felt suicidal after going through a rough time in my life. I was brought to the ER by mental health services while Dr. Smolarkiewicz was on call. When told that I had been feeling suicidal, he said something along the lines of not wanting to bad enough or I would have went to Canadian Tire and bought a gun. What a jerk!
Very selfish person who is always on holiday. On one occasion, I was booked for an eleven o'clock appointment (as were the other fifty people waiting) and he strolls in at four, with golf bags on his shoulder. He is very unsupportive of anyone with their indian status, claiming that they are mooching. Who is a bigger mooch? you who came to this country and abuses every privilege you are given, or me, who is forced to have you as a doctor? Ship this guy out on the first boat!
He is barely ever in his office. It takes months to get an appointment because they "DON"T HAVE HIS SCHEDULE". That's because he is either at the emergency department or on holiday's. When you are lucky enough to get an appointment, he will only discuss one medical issue, you have to book another appointment if there is anything else wrong with you. Maybe that's why it takes up to six hour's to see a doctor at emerg.
when this doctor is in the office, he is kind and caring, but he is seldom in the office. he leaves the area very often and he is impossible to get an appointment with. he seldom does referrals to specialists, choosing instead to treat your condition with antibiotics. he needs to make up his mind whether he will work in the Stephenville area, or in Mexico or wherever he spends his time.
" Doc Holiday" as he is known is concerned about one thing and only one thing....money. If he is not on holiday he is on a locum while his patients are left to fend for themselves.Why does he go to these towns to work when his own patients are suffering. It's time for people to wake up and see this man for what he is...money hungry
Dr. Smolarkiewicz has been my doctor for 14 years. During that time he has seen me through a lot of physical and emotional issues. He always shows a great amount of concern and listens to what I have to say. He has never steered me wrong. I am grateful to have him as my family doctor.
