Ratings for Dr. Christopher Kenworthy
I believe that Dr. Kenworthy is showing signs of cognitive impairment. He displays poor judgment, little to no insight, and is absent minded and forgetful during appointments. Add this to his longstanding arrogance, spitefulness and condescending manner and you have a recipe for disaster. Time to retire Dr. Kenworthy!
Dr. Kenworthy is a very arrogant and condescending physician. He misdiagnosed a very serious medical issue that I had for many, many years. He prescribed endless pain medications that barely helped and decreased my quality of life due to their side effects. Finally I obtained a new GP who ordered an MRI of the problem area. When the results were returned I could hardly believe it. The pain was not caused by the issue diagnosed by Dr. Kenworthy. I underwent a fairly simple surgical procedure and I have been pain free ever since. To be clear, because of Dr. Kenworthy's passivity, poor judgment and failure to explore alternatives, I spent years living with chronic, debilitating pain. Thanks to my new GP and the surgery, I am now 99% pain free and able to live my life in peace. Words cannot express how glad I am that I rid myself of this poor and uncaring doctor.
Dr. Kenworthy is very a nice person but as a doctor he is quite passive. He will be (usually) happy to give you a referral if you ask and if he agrees with your opinion. It helps if you already know what your problem is and have practically diagnosed yourself. This is not what I need in my family physician.
Dr. Kenworthy is certainly a nice man and readily tries to listen to his clients. I went to him for years. I am not a hypochondriac and would typically visit him once a year. Each year I would ask him about a condition that seemed to be consistently bothering me and consistently getting worse. Each year I left feeling that it was being sluffed off and that "it was all in my mind.". Eventually after a number of years of bring it up, I concluded that the condition was hindering my day to day routine and had had enough. I finally angrily (which is out of character for me) had to demand specialist tests. The tests came back cancer. I quit going to him that day.
Dr's. like Kenworthy should not be allowed to practice medicine. Condescending, patronizing, and insulting. He might a misogynist. I asked for a referral to an acupuncturist to manage pain Re; Hip Replacement (for insurance purposes) and he refused to give me one. HE did not believe in it therefore I wouldn't get a referral from him; but isn't it MY body and MY choice? He was the doctor of record and therefore - to get the procedures covered by insurance I required a doctors referral. Not acceptable. My daughter refused the Grade 8 Gardasil vaccination and his office called "soliciting" her and pressuring her into this unnecessary and potential very harmful vaccine and when I blasted the secretary for such egregious breach of trust and respect - the Doctor dismissed me as a patient. Unbelievable. Told me I did not respect his authority, had my own ideas about things and believed in VooDoo. And was an irresponsible parent. I was so mad I could have SPIT. Oh. Yes. This man is not a doctor. Sorry. Epic Fail.
Dr. Kenworthy has been my GP for 35 years. I had to change GP's because I moved.....but I think he was a great Doctor. He always had time for me, and was great at helping me with a WSIB issue. If you needed something.....all you had to do was ask and he would take care of it! I miss his office.....it's hard to get used to a new Doctor....
I'm beginning to wonder which country I live in, there is a serious Dr shortage and yet DR's like Kenworthy can pick and choose which patients he wants to keep based on how many times a year you go for visits. I was a patient of his for 15 years and just recently he told me he would no longer be accepted as a patient there. I personly think it was out of spit on his part because I removed my daughter from his care. Personally I am glad we no longer see him, I found him to be arrogant and dismissive. P.S find another Dr unless he can make lots of money off of your visits or he will dump you as a patient as well
