Ratings for Dr. David Engelberg
Best Doctor I have ever had. Caring, warm, knowledgeable and not always looking at his watch when you are with him. I never mind if I have to wait a bit. I know that when I do see him I am never going to get the bums rush. I consider myself lucky to be in his care through several life threatening events.
I just moved to downtown Toronto just three years ago and was very lucky to find a doctor like David. He has a vocation to be a doctor you feel it when you are with him. I have experienced many doctor's in my life but none are like him, willing to listen, to spend time with you, examine your problem in detail and then recommend how to go about them. Truly an inspiring family doctor. I wish we could have more of them. Oswald D'Paiva
Dr. Engelberg is an extremely compassionate, knowledgeable, professional and personable doctor who is always available for his patients if they need to reach out to him. I’ve never met, nonetheless expected, the amount of communication and promptness I’ve experienced with him. I truly do feel his patients are his first priority and my husband and I are both lucky to have him as our family doctor.
As I write this review I am looking out from my condo and thinking of everything that I would be missing from my friends, my family and yes even my kitten because if it wasn't for David I would not be here to enjoy any of them. David helped me through a very, very difficult time in my life. A diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder and Suicidal Ideations had brought me to my knees. David did everything in his professional powers to make sure that I received the treatment that I needed. He went as far as giving me his cell phone number in case I was in a crisis situation during my recovery. Over the last two years he has been instrumental in getting me back to a state of mind that is filled with hope instead of despair. He is quite simply the most caring, sympathetic and empathetic doctor I could have been blessed to have. Count yourself lucky if you have this man as your GP. I will make sure that the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario hears my story and acknowledges the difference he has made in my life.
Dr Engelberg is the only doctor that I know that takes his time to listen to my concerns. He always makes sure that you get the best care by being so proactive in his follow-up. I had to the ER 2 days ago and today I already got a call from his staff to ask me to book an appointment with Dr engelberg to talk about what is happening with my health. He is great
I have to wait very long time (from 30min up to 1 hour) to see this doctor even when I have booked an appointment with him. When I want to see him, he is always so booked that I have to wait at least 2-3 weeks to see him. Maybe he shouldn't see such a big number of patients. He wouldn't even see me for 5min to provide me with a refill of prescription, he sends me to the walk in clinic. I have been sick and I haven't been able to see him within a week because he is fully booked so I have had to go to the walk in clinic for that too. Why do I need such doctor if I have to constantly go to the walk in clinic?
