Ratings for Dr. Adil Siddiqui
I found this to be the worst dr I have ever seen, very vague and unclear with his answers, very rude and very unhelpfull. I wanted a lump checked out on my leg and he basically said he cant do anything without seeing it and to next time wear something that can roll up easily... unfortunately I dont think I have pants that roll way up past my thighs, isnt that why there are hospital gowns?! and how should I know that feeling it isnt enough. I will be keeping my appt with my family dr for next week to ensure I have nothing to worry about, he was a waste of my time.
The is absolutely the worst doctor I have ever seen. Went to see him because I was sick and he said I needed a prescription, so then I told him I have a heart condition and I have to be VERY careful with the medications prescribed to me. He said oh good thing you told me and then said he would give me a different type and also he wanted to give me inhaler. So my husband picks up my prescriptions for me and these antibiotics are so strange you only take 1 a day and can't have calcium within 8 hours of it... my husband said you better check your medication list and make sure it's safe because you never know with these doctors. I really didn't think anything because I told the dr of my condition. Well sure enough both the inhaler and the antibiotics are not safe at all and could cause me sudden cardiac arrest. Not just one of the meds but both he prescribed after telling him of my condition. This seriously could have been fatal for me so lucky I didn't take these and checked.
I went to see this Dr at a walk in clinic. He and coworker were chatting about me outside the room door (i was only patient in clinic at the time). Saying "this girl only has a cold" ..turns out i have a throat infection. He didnt' listen to my main concern about not being able to take my inhaler properly. He told me to take about 3 different OTC meds ASWELL as antibodics! Saying I was "FINE" . Um Since when is difficulty breathing.. FINE? he was short and rude! He did introduce himself. I would not refer him to anyone!
Adil Siddiqui is the worst doctor i have ever met! I had to go to him a couple times (not my choice) as he was the only walk in doctor at the time. He prescribed me medication I did not need and did not even explain what they were for (I had to ask the pharmacist) When he gave me a vaginal swab (another thing he did not explain) he told me (and i quote) "open it up" in a cold unprofessional tone. I had to go back the next day and speak with my regular doctor and she told me i did not need the medication prescribed. I was a little upset because the medication was expensive! My son also had a problem with him as well when he went for a knee problem. Siddiqui gave him the wrong form for ultrasound (very UNknowledgeable)and we had to end up going back to another dr. to get the proper one. Went to the urgent care for an earache one time, saw he was the doctor on duty and left! I do not recommend this doctor to anyone.
I lost a baby last year with another doctor who said everything was "fine and normal". I was unsure so I switched to Dr Siddiqui. Not only did he diagnose me with Hypothyroid.. which is a HUGE contributor to early pregnancy problems. He also took care of my long time back problem, sent me to a specialist right away, and always answers my questions with patience and kindness. He is a great doctor!
Dr. Siddiqui attended to my needs immediately. I have been having sinus problems for 2 years and he immediately got me in to see a specialist. He ordered all blood work and wanted to ensure all my medications were correct. My blood pressure was unstable and he was very concerned about it and spent time to ensure that we got it to a point where it was stable. Dr. Siddiqui always has time for me, ensure that my needs are met, and has been very poilte kind and considerate with every visit. First time in years I felt like more than just a patient
I have lived in Alberta 10 years, I went through 3 other GP who were just in it for the money to find a doctor that was willing to address my spinal problems. Just before heading away for 5 months I had a scoliosis x-ray (been trying for 10 years to get one), Siddique upon getting the results wanted me to come in right away (his office called once a week for a month to try to get me to come in). When I did finally come back to town Siddique put in for a referal to an orthopedic specialist. He was also the first doctor to do a complete physical in Alberta, most were just concerned with pap tests. He now has be doing yearly mammograms based on mammory cysts I have as well as my family history of breast, ovarian and colon cancers (even though I am only 31). He has been great for my father as well (whom hates doctors), Siddique went as far as reming out my father's surgeon for not putting him on hypertension medication. He also is treating my friends pemphigus (BF has waited 12 months
Have seen him at Urgent Care twice. Both times he seemed uninterested and somewhat rude and condescending. Also presribed antibiotics twice (once to me, once to my 3 year old) when he had clearly stated prior that what we had was VIRAL. When I asked why he was giving us antibiotics for something viral...he shrugged and just said "in case you want them". ??? I would not want to have to trust my life to this person....he is possibly the worst and most unpleasant doctor I have met.
