Ratings for Dr. G. Sukhrani
We had her assigned to us at Grey Nuns when I had my son and we continued going to her for 8 months. I continuously brought my son back convinced something was wrong with him and each time, she told me he was either teething or experiencing separation anxiety when we left him in his room at night. We finally took him to the stollery and he was diagnosed with 2 major conditions. Both of which the stollery doc told us he probably had since birth or at least 3-4 months. One week of treatment and he was a new baby. She not only missed multiple things with him, she made our baby suffer for months. As a mom, I can't even explain the disgust I have with her as a doctor and as a human. On a positive note, her receptionist is amazing and so helpful!!
I met Dr. Sukhrani with the birth of my second son in 2004 and have taken all my kids to see her ever since. Her assistant is a wonderful lady! I agree Dr. Sukhrani can be abrupt and to the point but she gets it done, and I've never walked away without an answer to my concerns. Not warm and fuzzy but I'm ok with that. You can always get your child in the same day if she's there, and that probably contributes to the short and to the point appointments. She does have a sense of humour as well - just may not see it every visit!
I can't really comment on her staff or punctuality as I only had the unfortunate experience of meeting her in the hospital when my newborn ended up back in hospital with bad jaundice. Our pediatrician was on vacation and she was covering for him. Well wow let me just say I have never encountered such a rude and unprofessional doctor in my life. My husband and I are first time parents and were feeling completely overwhelmed that our daughter was in hospital, on top of being exhausted and every thing else.. then this doctor marches in our room and starts grilling us about what we did at home and it was clearly our lack of feeding her why she ended up getting bad jaundice. Ii instantly defended myself and told her our baby had borderline high bilirubin levels before we discharged 2 days before.. which she didn't even know. I have never felt so terrible as a new parent then I did at that moment. She was absolutely awful and was thankful she wasn't our pediatrician.
I really like Dr. Sukhrani! She was assigned to us at GNH when my daughter was born and we've stuck with her. My daughter just turned 13 and she can only see her up to 14 years old before she needs to change to another physician. She has always been helpful and I've never had a problem getting an appointment in all these years. Her clinical admin assistant is AMAZING!!!!!! Dr. Sukhrani is definitely a no nonsense doctor and we are very happy with her services. :)
I absolutely love her! I have 5 children (2yrs-11yrs). She has always found the issue an never gave up until it was fixed. Also if any of my kids were really sick, they got them in that day! I dont have anything negative tosay about her! Highly recommend an will never change paediatricians :)
I would not recommend Dr suhkrani to anybody, she is super rushed and doesn't seem to care. I hate to say it but it seems we are dollar signs opposed to patients....I am a first time parent and have never left her office feeling satisfied she does not thoroughly examine my child ever!! She rushes you in and out with the I don't next care in and out process.. I have switched and definitely recommend checking reviews of doctors in the future as this is an accurate way of seeing the general impression left by a person that you expect to be genuine and care entrusting them with your child's health and we'll being. She is terrible and I'm glad to say we are never returning.
I have two children and Dr. Sukhrani was assigned to us in the Grey Nuns Hospital. She is definitely a busy doctor and has no time for nonsense. However if your child is actually sick it has been our experience that she will keep digging until she finds the problem. We have gotten to know her over the years and I am glad that I didn't switch after getting over the initial rush in and rush out routine. I know that if there is a serious problem with either of my children she will be there to get answers and put you in top priority. Her nurse/receptionist is probably one of the best I have ever met. For us she works out very well and I will stick with her until my kids are too old to go there anymore.
I had Dr Sukhrani as my daughter's pedatrician at Grey Nuns hospital when I have birth. I couldn't believe that this lady is a pedatrician she was so rough with my daughter she didn't answer any of my questions I was practically in tears when she left my room. Absolutely no bed side manners! The nurses even said she is just as rude to them as she is to parents. I would never in a million years recommend her as your child's Dr!
I'm a first time mom and when she came to see me and my daughter in the hospital last year I obviously had lots of questions, she didn't answer any of them and literally ran out the door. I should have took that as a hint and found my baby a new doctor. She's never on time, never answers my questions and is so rushed all the time. Her receptionist is one of the most unorganized, unprofessional and ignorant people I've ever had to deal with. Just today I called to change my doctors appointment from a thursday to a monday, and I was informed that Dr Sukhrani is out of the office and she will be seeing another doctor and they don't work on monday's. Not that I mind her seeing someone else but I should have been told before, they don't know I'd be fine with it. After I asking she said "there's nothing I can do, they don't work on mondays so you'll just have to keep it for thursday", she hung up and didn't even ask if that was all. Well needless to say, I'm looking for a new doctor.
