Ratings for Dr. Amel Sadek
Has no respect for her patients. Needed her to fill out a disability form I needed for school and she made a loud sigh when she realized it was four pages and barely looked at the questions before answering. I also haven't been able to eat anything for 3 days to an extremely sore throat, can't even turn my neck, and she looked in my throat for two seconds and decided nothing was wrong. Will definitely be finding a new family doctor.
Cannot believe this Dr still has a practice or license. I work in the medical field and had to tell her on numerous occasions what was wrong and what I needed. Her physicals are a joke. It takes you more time to take your clothes offthan the actual physical. She cannot read reports at all. She gives you a hard time and stresses you out when asking for a Dr's note. I have heard her husband in the same practice isn't much better. So glad I found a new family Dr who is caring, understanding and wonderful. My whole family has left her as a Dr.
Dr. Sadek has no bedside manners. The only thing she has ever done for me and my spouse is referred us to specialists, never taking any time to look at us herself. I had bloodwork done and she told me there was a chance I had lupus and she referred me to specialist, when I saw the specialist 3 months later he told me it was a 0.0001% chance of lupus and I clearly did not have it -I spent 3 months worrying because she did not tell me how low of a chance it was. As for my spouse, she refused to give him a work note because he had been falling ill due to his mental health because we didn't come see her each day he was ill... Even though she could clearly look on his records and see his ailments... Dr. Sadek made us feel like liars who waste her time...
I had throat cancer for over a year and she would not acknowledge my symptoms! She sent me for one other other test (for acid reflux) and then basically downplayed and avoided every other request I made for further testing. Finally I went to a public clinic and the doctor there immediately send me for a scan and biopsy. I was finally properly diagnosed thanks to this other doctor. When I told this crazy woman about it she acted as if she knew it was cancer all along! My wife was going to file a complaint with the doctor's college but we were so bogged down with treatment afterwards that we moved on. When she wanted $300 to move my files to a real doctor I just left them there. A horrible doctor, and a horrible person.
Nice lady but not knowledgeable or up to date. Missed symptoms for RA - had to ask her to test me for it. She always has ICE cold hands when doing a physical (& shrugged it off when I mentioned it the one time), doesn't listen (for instance, during one physical asked me the same question within 2 minutes, in an automated manner), pushes medications & vaccines every chance she gets, and has made an inappropriate degrading remark about my body during a physical. I strongly suggest you seek out any doctor but this one.
I previously posted a negative review for Dr. Sadek, and I'm astonished that she's managed to make me think even worse of her. I tried to disenroll myself from her patient list months ago because she would not pay attention to any of my health concerns or let me see any specialists, and today I found out that she has refused for a second time to take me off her list! I've even called the Ontario hotline to do so and somehow I'm still on her list. Today, I got a call saying I'm due for a physical and here I thought she wasn't even my doctor anymore. This is completely unacceptable, on top of her overbooking appointments, being rude and unhelpful, and not considering anyone else's knowledge but her own lacking knowledge. At all costs, AVOID DR. SADEK.
