Ratings for Dr. Paul Montemuro
Dr, Paul montemuro is probably the worst doctor i have ever dealt with, He fired me over the phone when I came into his office with back pain... later on i had an MRI that shows moderate to severe protrusion pressing on my sciatic nerve with that same disc degenerative. Thank you for nothing. You made my back so much worse by pretending i was fine and not doing YOUR DU DILIGENCE to help me.
Paul has been my doctor for a few yrs now. last yr i came down with huge pains in back and fatigue , he diagnoised/guessed that i have PMR , which is a painful diesease , he sent me for tests and to see a specialist and He was right... He is not a specialist , he is a GP....but a VERY GOOD one. Yes he seems rushed , but he does not want to long chat , as he has patients waiting and he is usually on time which is rare in a busy clinic. 5 star is my opinion.
Have been seeing Dr. Montemuro for 22 years. I agree that that he is sometimes rushed but he always sees you at the appointed time. He is a first rate doctor who has always provided the right medical advice and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a doctor.
I've been with Dr Montemuro for 10 years, ever since I moved to Vancouver from the UK. He has been consistently brilliant with his patient care, and I would highly recommend him. It does seem like he is rushing you from time to time, however when you look at the bigger picture he is an extremely popular doctor, for example, today whilst I sit in the waiting room I'll be his 15th consecutive appointment whilst being the only Doctor available on this day over the Christmas period. He is only being fair to the patients waiting and at the same time will provide a great service when you are with him!
I have been seeing Dr. Montemuro for over 15 years now and have had nothing but great experiences. In this time I have had several serious medical conditions and been diagnosed with a life long auto - immune disorder, Dr. Montemuro has not only treated me with respect, listened to and answered many of my questions, referred me to specialists as needed and had the patience of a saint. He also has taken the time to do his homework and learn more about the disease I have so he can help in my treatments while I wait for an appointment with my specialist. He has been our family Dr. for years and I hope he will be for many years to come.
He is the worst doctor ever. I do not recommend anybody to look for his care. He lacks of understanding, care, patience and compassion. On top of that his knowledge is questionable, he prescribes without a complete picture of your situation, he does not investigate the root cause of the problems. You are just a number for him. That is only a business.
Dr. Montemuro has been the Primary Care Doctor for me and my husband for several years now. We have always found him to be friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with any health issue we might have. If the issue requires a specialist, Dr. Montemuro has always referred us to great specialists. His office staff is always friendly and accommodating. As patients of Dr. Montemuro, I appreciate their ability to fit me in the same day when needed. I don't know how he does it, but he's always on time, and most of the time he's even early. We are very grateful for Dr. Montemuro and hope he stays in practice in North Van for a long time to come.
