Dr. Gewurz is my family doctor and Im so happy that I switched my care to her. She is friendly, non-judgemental and very accommodating - recently she gave me a consult via phone because she knows I have a busy job and wouldn't be able to make it in to see her otherwise in the next few weeks. I'm really surprised about the reviewers who commented on her using her computer during appointments - doctors are not all knowing beings!!! I think the fact that she looks things up shows a lack of arrogance, which is very disheartening quality I've found with many other doctors - it doesn't mean she doesn't know her stuff or isn't a good doctor.
She was the first doctor to listen to me when I was having stomach problems. Everyone kept telling me it was in my head. It wasn't. I have Celiac Disease. She never pushes medication, unless you are specifically looking for something. She's always attentive and answers all questions in easy to understand answers. She's wonderful!
I have gone through several doctors at Albany (they all have moved away from Toronto) and even though I have liked all of them, Dr. Gewurz is the first who has actually helped me with a problem the others didn't even believe was real. I once cancelled an appt with her and she called me within half an hour to check if I was okay - she took time to talk to me and then called back again soon after with a referral to a specialist. Thanks to Dr. Gewurz I'm healthier and feel better than I have in years. (And the staff gets a 5 because Christine is awesome)
I saw Dr Gewurz at the walk-in clinic. She was the most helpful, caring, attentive Doctor I have ever seen in Canada. She listened to my health issues and was sure to listen to me and do as many tests as needed to find out what is wrong with me. I did not get my results back yet but I am sure this Doctor will help me. Her very positive, caring attitude was really refreshing. She took extra time with me to ensure all my questions were answered and was very efficient about ensuring the necessary next steps were taken. She was very serious and dedicated to helping me. Great Doctor.
So sorry to see many people describe bad experiences they've had with Dr. Gewurz. My own experience could not be further from this. I have found her to be friendly, genuine, and down-to-earth- a very rare find among MDs. As a young woman, her sex-positivity and complete respect for my reproductive choices have also been greatly appreciated. Whereas other doctors have tried to tell me I'll "change my mind", Dr. Gewurz has never questioned my decision not to have children and has always been helpful and thorough in explaining my options to me. She is simply the best GP I've ever had.
I recently moved my family to Dr. Gewurz's care and I couldn't be happier. Like some others have pointed out, she is a busy doctor in downtown Toronto so I expect that sometimes an appt will be hard to get and sometimes she'll be late on her schedule. That's not rocket science to figure out. Both my daughter and I have found her to be very patient, understanding, inquisitive, and eager to help. One thing I found especially wonderful is her opting to try various options *before* just issuing a prescription. She's young, yes, but she's knowledgeable, friendly, up to date on new meds and therapies. Isn't that what you want with a doctor? I know I do! We couldn't be happier.
I am very happy with the services of Dr Gewurz . I came to her on a recommendation from a friend. I find her to be knowledgable, thorough and attentive to all my medical needs. It is very difficult to find competent doctors who are willing to work with older people who have complicated problems. I feel fortunate to know her as my conditions have greatly improved since going to see her. My family all go to Dr Gewurz now and are all very happy for the experience. She uses her computer as a research tool and is happy to share the information to help us both keep on top what things are available to help me. I have had several doctors over the last 45 years and she is by far the best. I am very happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a family practitioner.
