Ratings for Dr. Elizabeth Michalska
Just had an awful experience with this doctor... went in with my boyfriend who has a sprained ankle... she did not even look at his ankle.... sent him to x-ray and she came back told him that it is not broken and sent him on his way. I then went back into the clinic and asked to speak to her... asked what she recommended for care... she then got mad at me for speaking because I was not the patient and she told me to be quiet, and that the patient had a mouth to speak to her himself. She then went on to say she didn't need to look at it because she already knew it was swollen. And was angry when we asked for basic care instructions such as returning to work or wrapping with a tensor. She REFUSED to give basic care instruction, and she REFUSED to even do a basic range of motion test or circulation test on a potential fracture. AVOID THIS DOCTOR AT ALL COSTS, unless you want completely arrogant and unacceptable beside manner.
I came in her clinic with no appointment and was advise that it will take long to wait for her but I still went to see her because I am worried of my health. I did'nt expect to wait 2 hours and half. I waited 2 hrs and then she showed up and said she'll be with me in a minute but I waited 30 more minutes. I decided to cancel my check up as I have also some important errands to do that day, but the staff said to wait more and she'll be with me. 3 times the staff asked me if she show up, i said yes but ask me to wait, when i am finally leaving the staff looks annoyed to me because I am trying to cancel 2 times. The staff loudly tell Dr. Michalska that I am waiting, both of them were unprofessional. After this I receive a call from her staff to have a follow up check to her. Before my appointment I rescheduled it because i cannot come suddenly, after talking to the receptionist who seems ok talking with me, she said Goodbye in the end but banged the phone before I completely put it down. What a terrible experience I have in this medicentre heritage. I will never go back here. From the Dr and the assisting nurse and the receptionist who greeted client like she is in a fastfood. Very unprofessional! How can I trust my health with his kind of service which is supposedly compassionate and attentive to client. This is the first bad experience i had. All other clinic i was treated well.
I went there she was very hard on hearing, and listening to all my concerns and problems. I told her I needed a medical note but she wasn't even going to try look up or search any info about me in order fully help me and find out what's wrong with me. She clearly said "I don't have time to call around and talk to whomever, I'm very busy!" She was rude and very mean and negative. She's very elderly and narsaitic. And she'd rather help older people than help out a much younger woman who's got more life time to worry about. And also her s*** wasn't together the nurse was even as dumb, they didn't even know who I was or what my name was they brought in the wrong paper work, and didn't know what I needed done. I tried to explicitly explain. I didn't even get what needed to be delt with done, no medical note. Nothing except dumb blood work and pee test which wasn't what I needed. BS liar doctor shouldn't even be working shes so old she couldn't even hear anything .
Dr. Michalska is was so wonderful to me! I found her so sweet and her disposition so comforting. Through my bi-polar medications and on going care, to my pregnancy, to an unsettling car crash. She has been attentive and always hadn't leaving feeling optimistic and much more calm than I had into ally walked in feeling. I think she is a true gem!
She is rude and terrible. Her staff is unkind and not helpful. You can make any appointment and you will wait at least one hour and half, without knowing how long is that. Once they called for my blood results and after waiting 1,5 hour she came in and told me: " It is 3 o'clock. My work time is over so why are you here? who let you in?" Then she could not find my results and was talking with an assistant in other room about them . When she come to my room she gave me a prescription for a new drug for me and did not tell me anything about it. The only question she asked me was where was I coming from ( a country of my origin). On the box of the new drug it says that my doctor has to say me about it. An other time she left me undressed to wait for her gynaecological exam and told me she forgot on me and then was talking to nurse about my organs without a word to me. When I asked her about it she said that I am good like a sorcerer . If you are waiting for somebody more hours you expect that person to give at least 5 to 10 minutes, her ear and advice. I am looking for a new family doctor.
Son was sent for x-rays for his shoulder, doctor said it was just bruised, went elsewhere and got a second opinion and he had a fractured clavicle. She must of caught her mistake because we were called back the next day. Told she wanted to see us on Tuesday but could not make an appointment so we had to be walk ins. Would not let us know how long we were to wait. This was the first day of school at a new school. We left. Already knew. This is the second and LAST time I take one of my children to this clinic...been there twice and both times misdiagnosed.
Dr Elzbieta Michalska is wonderful!!! She has helped me with so many things where my previous doctor had failed to even look into.She is open to doing the tests needed to find a problem and respects that my time is as valuable as hers by listening to me, and realizing that I would not be there if it I did not have a problem/symptom/concern for my health! A doctor who respects people and truly cares for them!She is a wonderful doctor. Very knowledgeable, understanding, caring, and a great listener too. She is so patient. I would really like for her to open her own private practice, but until she does, I am going to be waiting at the Medicentre very patiently. Thanks, Dr. Michalska
She is an extremely rude person, she seemed confused and did not give me the right dose of my prescription even after I told her what it was. I waited for two hours to see her and did not feel that I was attended to properly. When I mentioned the dose was was wrong, she made it seem like it was an inconvenience to her to correct it. I would not recommend this Dr to anyone.
