Ratings for Dr. William Hemens
Dr Hemens is notorious in the Muskokas for being beyond terrible with his beside manners, incredibly judgmental and completely inept at proper diagnoses and treatment. I recently had an accident whereby I received a substantial laceration requiring over a dozen sutures to close the wound. Without properly viewing and assessing the injury sustained, Dr Hemens closed the wound without any antibiotics, or cauterizing of the arterial bleeds I had sustained. He did not use any pain killers besides minimal and ineffective local freezing of the area and seemed bothered by my questions and concerns. Less than 12 hours after being discharged by him with no prescribed antibiotics or medication at all, I found myself being readmitted to the emergency room with internal hemorrhaging and an arterial spurting. After an additional 10 hours in the hospital, Surgeon Rohit Gupta managed to fix the damage caused by Dr Hemens. Dr Gupta was required to remove all of Dr Hemens sutures, properly clean the area, cauterize the internal bleeds and redo the sutures. I was then released with a prescription for antibiotics that was much needed after the butcher job Dr Hemens had done previous. Avoid at all costs.
I have required Dr. Hemen's care for myself and my family a few times over the years in Emergency, he was absolutely marvelous. I was thrilled to find that he was replacing Dr. Kent upon his retirement and have to say that he, again, have proven to be absolutely marvelous. If you need a Doctor that is knowledgeable, not afraid to speak the truth and "gets the job done". He is the Doctor to beat.
Unfortunately Dr. Hemens works at the Archdekin Clinic, which has the rudest ladies working there. They don't help patients - they are an inconvenience to them. The unfortunate part is, there are many other people who are customer service oriented that should replace these individuals immediately. If you are reading this, and are an employee at Archdekin - put the customer's first! Help them out! Don't just shew them out the door so you can complete your paperwork. Unbelievable.
I think he is a wonderful Doctor. He delivered my son this past July, and is now a doctor to my daughter and family. I would recommend this doctor as he is very knowledgeable and easy to speak with. Despite and of the other negative comments below I disagree with all of them. He is a very good person and doctor. I enjoy his personality and humor which makes it more enjoyed to go to the doctors.
Met him last night in Emer with difficult anxiety reaction to meds?? He was almost rude, abusive and insulting and displayed no compassion. He was not interested in my opinions. Told me to stop stupid worrying and stop bothering the hospital. Did concede .5 mg Ativan, which gave me a few hours of sleep, and told me to see my Family Doctor.
