Ratings for Dr. Farid Kakavand
I have been with Dr. Kakavand since he first came to Keswick. I find him very personable and caring. He is very knowledgeable and I find if he feels you need to see a specialist he will refer you ASAP. I travel 50 miles to come to his appointments and feel that I would be hard pressed to find a Doctor as devoted. Thank you Dr Kakavand.
I've been to Dr Farid for about 3 years now. He is a very caring doctor but he is very rushed often times. Sometimes it will take at least 1 day for doneone to respond to your voicemail. Most of the staff are nice but one older lady in particular I find her to be very rude.
Been seeing Dr. Kakavand for about two years now in his Richmond Hill location. He did pick a missed diagnosis that a specialist apparently missed. So I will give credit for that. He does care about his patients and sometimes will get ticked at you if you don't follow his advise on meds. Seems to have some connections with Specialist however some of the referrals are awful. However I often times find him rushed and frazzled. Can sometimes rush you out the door too quickly as many times his staff overbook him. He is actually pretty knowledgeable but unfortunately falls into the old boys doctors guard of modern medicine where we over prescribe and prescribe meds til we are blue in the face...
Dr. Kakavand's office phones are very busy and it may take a day to get a response for an appointment however this doctor saved my life. From the moment we suspected a problem, all tests were promptly scheduled, the right specialists contacted and appointments made. Two years later, I am cancer free and enjoying life to the fullest. I have moved from Keswick however Dr. Kakavand remains my physician. I will not give him up. He is a God send!
He used to be a good doctor when he first arrived in Keswick a few years ago. He took his time to find out what was wrong with you and then went ahead to prescribe you something. For the last 4 years, he is too busy to hear what you have say and basically spends only a few minutes with me after I have been waiting at least 30 - 1 hour in the waiting room. Every time I go there, I am left with a bad taste in my mouth that he didn't really address my health issues. I am always angry after visiting him. what happened to the oath that he took to save lives? It seems its all about money now. I changed to another doctor a few months ago. If you are really ill, find another doctor who cares about his patients. Dr Kakavand doesn't
