Ratings for Dr. Golbarg Araghi
I saw Dr araghi earlier this week regarding an urgent issue. She has been my doctor for many years. I find her very attentive and not once I felt rushed or brushed off. The office is run so effectively. Results are reviewed usually right away and if any issues, they are followed by a phone call or a request to come in. My entire family sees Dr Araghi as well and we are very grateful for her care. She has four children, works Monday to Saturday and not once I have called and not been given a same day or next day appointment, Can't find hard working doctors like her these days. She does charge for many services that are not covered under OHIP, but I don't mind. She provides excellent care and that's what counts. This is the norm these days. Doctors charge for their time like so many other professionals. Keep up the good work Dr Araghi!
I was only a patient of her for a year, and honestly she is one of the worst physicians I've ever met in my life. She did graduate from McGill University but that doesn't mean she's a good doctor. Have you ever asked yourself what makes you a good doctor??!! Dealing with uncertainty, protocols are great but doctors often must work off-protocols in the best interests of the patient... many patients are alive today because doctors took risks. I don't care if she's late or busy; we might all be busy and late sometimes for some reasons. That's not an issue. What is important is that she is not compassionate and doesn’t care about the health of her patients. Specifically in my situation the first thing that comes to mind is that maybe she wanted to see me so that she can charge me for the visit. Because last time that she saw me she said keep the same dose for your medication... Today I called her told her that I have only 2 pills left and I need couple more until I can go see her. I am student in downtown Toronto and I finish school at 5 pm every day, by the time I get there (Richmond Hill) it's too late and they will be closed. I asked them to fax the prescription of only 4 or 5 pills to the pharmacy in downtown so that I can take my medications until I go and see her in a couple of days. I gave the receptionist the name of the pharmacy that is close to the university I go to. I have to take my meds every day. She was not even concerned that I will be without my medication till the end of week. She said I have to go there, She just wants to make money, and wants to make sure patients are charged for every reason, no matter what!!!! Asking her to take 2 minutes to writing a prescription for a medication that she prescribed in the first place and also a prescription that she knows I can still refill 2 more times is not a big deal just to make sure her patient is ok .... I was in shock at what kind of doctor she is!!!! She neglected my health, she didn't even bother... just repeated many time that "I have to see you" See me for what!!!! The medication I take is very common. Its levothyroxin doctor Araghi. And last time I saw you , you told me don't need to change the dosage. It's not a narcotic or any other type of medication... also you said I have to be your patient for more than a year so that you can fax the prescription to the other pharmacist!!! So if I am your patient for more than a year you should care more about my health rather than other stuff. That's your duty. But I think seeing me and charging me for that visit is more important to you. I feel so sorry if that's the case!! What you did was unethical and negligence. I'm pretty sure CPSO won't agree with what you did!! You could have given me few pills until we can arrange an appointment.
I have had her as a dr. For 10 years , I had an appointment and due to the horrible weather out side I had to cancel the same day, first time in 10 years and I was told I would be charged even though it was weather related. Traffic was terrible and most likely would miss my appointment and was told I would be charged if I missed the appointment as well. I actually see her in person maybe once every 1.5. As a dr. She's is in personal , always late and cold. The only reason why I had been with her for so long due to the waiting list for new dr.
She is the kind of person who is to the point. She gets the job done. She is quick and I like that about her. Would recommend her but I believe she is done for taking new patients. She has a lot of patients and loved by so many. Thank u for everything Dr Araghi ! D.D.
I was recently diagnosed with cancer and I can't thank Dr Araghi enough. She was so quick in getting me connected with the oncologist and ordering the right tests that it Saved my life. My situation was deteriorating by the minute. I am forever grateful and thankful.
Dr Araghi is a nice person but not a good doctor, you have less than 5 minutes with her, after waiting 45 minutes to see her. She never knows my health details including dosage of meds I'm on because she doesn't open my records on her computer. She is totally disconnected with my health history and the yearly medical check doesn't exist. No follow up on medications I'm taking, she says one thing and the next time I she her, she advises another thing related to a health issue I have. It's very frustrating when you have to advise the doctor of your dosage and follow up care. Dr Araghis office is now into beauty treatments and offers Botox, CoolSculpting expensive creams etc. She's a nice person but not the kind of doctor I need. Her focus is not a fulltime doctor.
I have always had a good experience with Dr Araghi . I see people saying she just sends you to specialists , although she may do that more so than other doctors , she is not ashamed to send you to the right people to get you fixed up . Overall I feel she has my best interest at heart and is very pleasant ( and beautiful to look at) haha and has seen me through all my injuries , surgeries and illness . I'm a mechanic and I can tell you the worst thing I can do when diagnosing somebody else's investment for problems is to bs them to save face . If I don't know I'll tell you just that and I will have a next step . That is what responsible people do , putting others well being over your image is truly a selfless act . Trust me , I'm sure she can convince you she knows exactly what's wrong everytime if she wants , just like I can mechanically . Be thankfully she is how she is , if you stick with her and listen , you will get fixed . I love her secretary too .
Dr Araghi is a very busy doctor and I know sometimes when I go in I have to wait a bit. But she is such a wonderful person. Aileen her receptionist has been there for a few years and she makes it so easy to either call with a concern or book an appointment. Yes they do charge for many things, but she is charging for her time. Overall, wonderful place to go to with medical concerns
