Ratings for Dr. Stephen Im
Scheduled appointment seems to mean nothing. Sees you for 2 minutes after waiting an hour past your appointment time. Didn't seem to ask any futher questions about what I am experiencing, just told me I need birth control and surgery. I am trying to get referred to different gyno for a 2nd opinion.
He always makes everybody wait more than 1.5 hour. Regardless waiting time, he doesn't remember my file who just had a surgery. Scary... When my current doctor read Dr. Im's surgery report, he couldn't get any information. He said report doesn't mean anything.
I have no idea if doctor Im is any good since it's my follow up appointment today. Booked for 9am and now 9:30. I can wait for an appointment but to not even be open and have anyone here is ridiculous. Will be asking for a referral to another doctor immediately. Don't tell this is the Healthcare system. Someone should be here and working if you are handing out appointments. Or you know common courtesy to call and cancel. Thanks for nothing but wasting the morning I took off work.
On behalf of this clinic, we would like to thank everyone who has written a comment. Please be advise that these comments are being monitor. Please be considerate. Unfortunately this clinic is currently overbooked, the doctor is very busy, this happened to all other clinics in Toronto at this time as well, you are expect to wait for at least half an hour to an hour for your appointment even if you come on time. If you have a complaint about the medical system, please complain to Health Canada, do not write a comment here to insult the doctor and his medical staff, this is not appreciate! If you are not satisfy with this doctor, please go to your family doctor and ask for another referral, and good luck of finding another doctor. The doctor and his staff are here to service the Toronto community, please show respect to their hard work!
They do not have any respect for people's time. The receptionist gives the same time slot to a dozen of people and the wait is an overage 1 hour and a half. I went to have my IUD removed and the doctor tried to convince me to keep it. I had to insist to get the procedure done.
I was a high risk pregnancy with Twins and Dr Im was with me the whole term and anticipated problems before it happened delivery healthy babies preterm. Been a pt now 23 years no regrets have a large female friends and family circle been with him for year's have lots of respect for this Dr has been an ER and ICU nurse for 20 yrs and still am his patient. He cares about his patients.
Where do I begin? The level of disorganization in this office is un-precedented . I had been experiencing abdominal/pelvic pain since last summer and telling Dr Im about it. After a lot of time wasted with him having no clue what to do, he then decided to order a pelvic MRI. He would not answer or acknowledge the fact that it would also make sense to have imaging of my abdomen as well. In order to complete the pelvic MRI, blood work would need to be completed beforehand. This I did. However, when it was time to undergo the imagining, I had been hospitalized in another facility and had to miss my appointment. I was told that I could not simply re-schedule my appointment, but that I would have to do the whole process over again. Dr. Im's secretary scheduled me to see him to get another blood requisition form. He had no idea why I was there and then insisted that I use the blood work results from the hospital in which I was an inpatient for the hospital that was going to do the MRI. I have no idea why he refused to give me another blood work requisition form as that would have been the easiest thing instead of me having to do this extra work. I had my MRI in early January and am still waiting to receive the results. I had a follow-up appointment scheduled for the end of January and it was cancelled because the results hadn't arrived. A follow-up appointment was scheduled for a few days ago. I called multiple times to inquire if the results were received because it didn't make sense to go down there and wait for hours only to be told that there were no results. The best answers I could get from his secretary is that "I'm busy" or "I'm behind in my filing" or "There's a stack of MRI results that have just arrived." I then decided to cancel the appointment. She then called me yesterday to tell me that she was going to call the hospital to find out what happened with the MRI results, even though I've waited almost two months since I had the imaging. Why didn't she bother to do this sooner? She clearly needs to be replaced. Stay far away from this office!!!
