Ratings for Dr. Jennifer Upitis
I saw Dr. Upitis on a referral from my Nurse Practitioner. He was concerned about skin cancer and arranged for a visit to Toronto opposed to the year long wait in Sudbury. I didn't have a long wait for neither the appointment or to be attened to once at the office. The care was what I expect from a dermatology appointment. My concern is related to having my travel grant denied based on Dr. Upitis's lack of credentials. She is not a certified dermatologist which now causes me another concern about the results and her ability to properly make an assessment. I'm in the process of appealing the travel grant and advising my Nurse Practitioner clinic not to recommend her as a dermatologist.
This woman is a Donald Trump supporter. Do yourself a favor, see a real dermatologist for your skin problems. This woman is a family doctor who did a two year residency in Alberta and did a skin course in Boston. A real dermatologist has a five year residency under their belt. I would not trust this person to diagnose skin cancer at all.
I was referred to Dr. Upitis by my family doctor 3 years ago. Having had melanoma 8 years ago, I need to be checked every year. I was never overly impressed with Dr. Upitis and her quick assessments. Once she leaned in the doorway and asked me if I had anything I wanted her to look at. I said "Yes, I need you to check my entire body.....she seemed put off that she had to come into the room and check me....this after not seeing me for a year!! Now, I receive a call from the Oak Ridges clinic telling me that Dr. Upitis is no longer with them and I need to get a doctor's referral in order to see another doctor in their clinic. Apparently after taking her mat leave, she has joined a clinic in Toronto. In my opinion she had no interest in any type of skin disease and was only interested in the cosmetic side of her profession where the money is. I'm glad she's gone from the Oak Ridges clinic and even though it is a pain to make an appointment with my family doctor to get a referral, because of her departure, I will get a qualified skin specialist to take over my care.
I have been a patient of Dr. Upitis for at least 8 years now. Non melanoma skin cancer has been my ongoing issue. Dr. Upitis does a terrific job of looking after me. I am so pleased to have her as my Dr.. And the surgeons on call working with Dr. Upitis are all outstanding professionals. Most importantly, Dr. Upitis always reminds me at the end of every visit/treatment that her door is always open to me in time of need. What more could anyone possibly want...
I have visited dr Upitis twice to see a problem about an occurring skin rash during the summer.she diagnosed it as eczema. However I had the worst one on one consultation with her as she was muttering that I was not educated enough to understand that this condition was in fact incurable.as a patient I have to trust my dr.as she is the one with the proper medical knowledge.I cannot just Google everything myself and trust that all things are true over the internet, that's why we look towards our professionals for medical assistance.the second time I came back for another opinion hoping to learn more ways to treat my problem better. Dr.Upitis slabbed a thick layer of derma cream on the area where my outbreak occurred and told me to go home, she was not patient at all and did not want to hear what I wanted to ask. This is the worse example of a specialized doctor I've ever encountered. I will never go back to see her again.
I have been seeing Dr. Upitis for 3-4 years and she has always treated me like she really cared. She has treated me for non-cancerous leisons and they never came back. I would recommend Dr. Upitis to any of my family or friends. Another nice thing is she has never kept me waiting past my appointment time.
