Dr. Kam Shojania's Ratings
Of all my specialists, Dr. Shojania is my absolute favorite to visit. Not only is he compassionate & easy going, but he's also incredibly knowledgeable. When my other specialists of different fields were all sending me in circles to one another, Dr. Shojania took the time to reach out to them personally so that they could all brainstorm together to help me get back on my feet. Truly a wonderful doctor!
Seeing a specialist for the first time is always a scary process but having spent the time with Dr Shojania and Dr Bach I was made to ease with their compassion and knowledge in determining my condition. From the staff to the Doctors it was a comforting and thorough experience and i knew my health was in good hands
I was recently referred to Dr. Shojania for a second opinion. He was extremely knowledgable about my condition and was very understanding. Not only did he listen to my complaints but he examined me more thoroughly than any doctor I have seen before. I have asked him to take over my care. He is exceptional. His staff are also very kind and helpful.
I am very critical of giving physicians good evaluations, but have had nothing but great experiences with this clinic. They are dead on-time which is incredible and their knowledge as a team is excellent. Dr Shojania is very kind and understanding and does listen. We discussed my treatment intelligently and he allowed me to guide the decision based on my understanding of my body and past experience. There's a reason he's responsible for resident training.
I think he is a wonderful, kind and compassionate doctor. He knows how to put someone at ease. I actually like attending my appointments. He is smart and to the point. He is never rude or inconsiderate. He saw me sooner than any other doctor and trust me he is very busy. I would like to add that he is gorgeous! Cyndi and Patricia are great as well, super friendly.
Dr. Shojania has always been helpful to me. Ever since I've started to see him, Dr. Shojania and his staff have given me the best of care. I don't know if I would've made it without him. Thank you, Kam.
Dr. Shojania has been my rheumatologist for 5 years. When I was initially referred to him with symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, he sent me to the rapid diagnosis clinic at Mary Pack arthritis centre where I was seen within 2 weeks, received my diagnosis of RA, and started on treatment immediately. I believe this efficient management of my RA likely saved me from permanent joint damage. Since then, I have been following up regularly with Dr. Shojania. He is a good listener, respectful, knowledgeable, and cares about the whole person. He takes his time to discuss issues. He is an excellent clinician, who is interested in the science of medicine, and the art of communicating to patients in a compassionate way. He has also contributed in a significant way to advocating for improved access to care, increasing medical students' interest in rheumatology, and improving education in this field. He also participates in fundraising for arthritis programs, and collaborates closely with consumer groups such as Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE). I highly recommend Dr. Shojania for patients with inflammatory rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and ankylosing spondylitis.
Dr Shojania is extremely arrogant and patronizing. He does not respect a patient's right to get a second opinion. He does not listen well, and appointments always seem rushed. I would rather go without medical care than continue being a patient of his.
Having had experience with three rheumatologists, and with no complaints about any of them, I would be lying if I did not say Dr. Shojania is by far the best of the lot. Not only does he know his stuff, he allows me to take an active role in my treatment, and he listens to me. Dr. Shojania not only cares about my physical state, but my emotional well-being as well, and he made sure that my depression was treated by referring me to a specialist in that field. He knows his stuff, he's gentle, he's kind, and I would not trade him for another rheumatologist because quite frankly, nobody else measures up. I don't understand those who wrote negative comments, but I can only speculate that the issues lie with the commenters themselves. Anyone who gets referred to Dr. Shojania is very lucky and can expect to be given good care.
I agree with the other posters who say they would rather go without medical care than to see him. He actually caused more damage than no care with his hasty, unfounded opinion that falls in the "it's all in your head" category. Like others, I have had excellent, ongoing medical care for years since seeing him that proves the devastating damage from my active disease. I'd go to great lengths to never be seen by him again. He may win awards for teaching and service but I couldn't agree with others more about his lack of skill. That he holds so much power and prestige in BC is kind of frightening, actually.
