Ratings for Dr. Albert Tsang
He should be reported to the College of Physcians to save people from unfortunate outcomes due to issues about his shallow care of Patients.He is very shallow ,not deligent and overlooks many details as he wants to see more patients and get paid more by OHIP from the number if patients he sees.This is particularly a problem if you have a challenging medical problem for which your Doctor needs to be detailed and ahead of the game to win.He doesnt want to be bothered about anything detailed.He doesn't think outside the box and gives everyone the same 4 pages of photocopied blood work: CBC,CD4,Viral load and CD4.Because he doesn't think outside the box and doesn't want to be bordered with detailed care demand,he missed my diagnosis.As a result I went untreated for a cureable opportunistic infection.I am now palliative after much harm due to the missed diagnosis.This shouldn't have happened if I was better managed by Dr.Albert Tsang.MY ADVICE:Run for your life to another Doctor if you have a challenging health problem.He should see fewer patients to offer better quality care to few than substandard care to many.Unfortunately many people do not know their medical rights.I had an infectious disease specialist see me and he said if I were better managed,I would not be in this shape.
Dr. Tsang needs to tidy his acts and save people's lives. He virtually operates a "drive through' clinic similar to Tim Hortons. He seems to be more concerned about the NUMBER of patients he sees rather than the QUALITY OF CARE.He doesn't seen to be diligent. He is more concerned about the next patient He oscillates between poles of emotions and it shows in his attitude.Moody on some days and sarcastic on other days.He has a medical license but lacks the attribute to deliver care:emotions,deligence etc.He is very quick to send you off to specialists and doesn't want to take a stand on things all at the expense and peril of the patient.You can get better care elsewhere. BEWARE!!!!! especially if you have delicate health issues.

Dr. Tsang was my physician for near 20 yrs. I followed him through 5 different offices and probably 20 different staff. He sees so many patients his office is a mill. He would generally send you for every test available as he only seems comfortable with paper results I wouldn't imply he would send you for any other reasons. Specialists are aware of his procedures and have commented.
I have been a patient of Dr. Tsang for the past 7 years and my experience has been very good. To begin with I like the fact that he has an undergraduate pharmacy degree, so has an extensive scientific knowledge of the medications he prescribes---in fact his understanding is borderline encyclopedic:) I have found Dr. Tsang to be fair with the time he allocates for me at appointments. The length of the appointment correlates to the medical issue, so when I am there for a chest cold he diagnoses the issue and if there isn't anything else he wraps up the appointment. I can see that some patients on RateMDS have taken offence but I recognize he is managing his time efficiently. Conversely, when I had a more serious issue, like elevated prostate activity, he spent as much time as I wanted to patiently answer all of my concerned anxious questions. What I respect most about Dr. Tsang is that he is incredibly conscientious as it relates to diagnosing a medical issue. His priority is to accurately diagnose--- if that requires additional testing, so be it, my wellbeing comes first. Finally, Dr. Tsang runs a downtown urban medical practice which is very evident when you are sitting in his waiting room. If you are uncomfortable sitting with other patients from all socioeconomic spectrums of society then you should find another doctor. If your priority is to have a doctor that is conscientious, hard working and engaged then Dr. Tsang is your guy.
I had been his patient for twenty five years and he never really seem to care I ended up with prostate cancer because he never once gave me a examination he is full of attitude and cares more about his HIV patients then other people and I am a male I switched to a new doctor who actually listens and does not send me to every specialist in Toronto
I have a patience of Dr. Tsang for over 10 yrs . During my visits to his office, Dr Tsang made me feel like I was wasting his time. Compassion to his patient is certainly lacking. A simple problem was never diagnosed on the first appointment, a 2nd appointment was always required. Dr tTsang has relocated his practice on several occasions to various areas of the city. Actively looking for a new GP.
