Ratings for Dr. Leonard Kuwahara
This certainly is not the first comment I've made. A few months back, I returned to Dr. Kuwahara's practise. The biggest regret is leaving in the first place, but moving well out of the area meant a long drive. The Dr. I had (since leaving Dr. K) was not a good fit for me. I needed to be back with Dr. K. so I could talk with him in a relaxed fashion, I always had total trust & faith in him, & I liked him. Recently, Dr. K. referred me for a colonoscopy. I had never had this procedure..& I'm 68 yrs of age. The procedure revealed 2 polyps...which of course were removed, & neither were a threat to my health. I hate to think what might have happened had I stayed with the Dr. I didn't fit with..likely I would not have had the colonoscopy. It's scary to think of having polyps that could have grown to the point of being a threat. I'm so grateful to Dr. K. for making that referral. So once more, I'm singing Dr. Kuwahara's praises.
To the writer of April 27/2016..re not receiving calls about appts. I'm a little confused. You say "she never called me about my appointments I would booth with other specialists". Actually, it is the receptionist who books the appointment, then calls the patient with the appt. date. I don't know who you spoke to about this issue, & I certainly don't know to blamed you for it. If it was the receptionist, perhaps you may have asked why you weren't informed,. Did you discuss this with the Dr.? I do find him to be very understanding & helpful. Even though you now live far away, you may have problems finding a doctor who is taking new patients. Please do yourself a gigantic favour...is leaving Dr. Kuwahara's practise due to a possibly misunderstanding really worth looking for another doctor? I too live quite a distance, found a doctor in my area, but as it turned out, that doctor was not a good fit for me. I'm so glad I was able to return to Dr. Kuwahara's practise. Yes, the drive may be 1 1/2 hrs...& it bad weather it may be a chore, but the bad weather isn't for several months down the road, & I may not have to see him all that often. Good luck!
I was with Kuwahara since I was a child. He's probably one of the BEST listeners out there, a very kind and considerate person. And so is the secretary, but there is where the problem lies. She never called me about any appointments I would book with other specialists. I brought it up once and I was then blamed for it... It was very frustrating and caused me took seek another doctor, I've lived far for a while now anyways so it was a good excuse. I really miss him though.
It's very fortunate for me that I have been able to return to "Dr. K's" practice. I left 4 years ago because I moved out of the area, but the new Dr. turned out not to be a good fit for me. I trust "Dr.K" implicitly, have complete faith in him, & I'm very relaxed in his presence..which I feel is very important. I can discuss anything with him without being made to feel as though I was inferior to him. He explains things clearly, & I'm very comfortable asking questions if I don't undertand. The biggest mistake I made was leaving his practice in the first place, but that has changed now. I'm back with the Dr. & not only want, but need. I'm sure this feeling of security & calmness will go a long way to keep me on the path of good health. I can't say enough about this man.
Although "Dr. K" is no longer my doctor (I moved out of Toronto), I must say in all honesty that I miss him terribly, & wish I could still have him for my Dr. When I moved, I had to be practical..as driving over 1hr 30 min. was not a good idea especially in bad weather. If I could figure a way to have him back, I'd do it..in a heartbeat, but I don't see this happening. I was always comfortable with him, he spoke in everyday language, & was reassuring. Friends have asked if I had/have any regrets about moving out of Toronto, & my answer is.."I'm happy in my new home, but sorry I had to leave Dr. K." For those of you out there who have him as your Primary care physician, I envy you, but in a good way, & I hope you appreciate the fine Dr. you have in him.
