Ratings for Dr. Kevin Sheu
one thing great about Canada is that people have freedom to say things. The two long comments with superior rating below, yeah, we got it, this doc gave your mother a discount card and she can get brand name by paying low, rest from other tax payers pocket! But you don't make stupid assumptions of other ill patients about fake notes, nor antibiotics. It's none of your freaking business! This is a free country and this site is open to general public, I am sure these commends reflects patients views and they are not from the same person, don't don't try to manipulate others mind. Just Go on enjoy your discount card!
This website is allowing any ridiculous people to leave totally untruthful information, without a need for verification. I am a regular female patient of Dr. Sheu for many years and the previous comment was just a joke. First of all, I regularly saw Dr. Chong or Dr. Tan for female issues and Dr, Sheu encouraged me to discuss any sensitive female concerns with doctors who I felt more comfortable. I have seen Dr. King with Dr. Sheu does not work on weekends. Although Dr. Sheu is my regular family doctor, he never told me that i only belonged to him or i an not allowed to see other doctors. Although I know he wold be the person in charge of my overall health. My parents have diabetes and kidney problems, and my kids are in the exam room in the past. He never stopped us eating. Regarding medications, Dr. Sheu has give my parents coupon cards to allow my parents to pay the price of drugs and get the brand name drugs. I think personally people may dislike or have personal opinions about a doctor, but the information about Dr. Sheu on this website is simply unfair, unacceptable and untruthful.
I have had several bad experiences with Dr. Sheu: 1. When I wanted to consult with a female doctor at the same clinic he came into the room I was in before the female doctor could enter and stated "You are my patient, you don't see anyone else." I wasn't able to see the female doctor because he wouldn't leave the room. 2. When trying to get permission to eat during exams (because I'm diabetic and would sometimes experience blood sugar lows) I was told that I had to ask for accommodation through the disabled students centre on campus. They gave me a form for him to fill out. When I took it out of my bag to give to him he did not wait to hear what I said he simply said that I wasn't disabled and he would not sign the form. He told me that I shouldn't have asked. 3. On more than one occasion, because I was having trouble with medication and blood sugar control, he told me that I was going to die early. His remedy was that I should eat sandwiches because he was under the assumption that I ate a poor diet even though I told him otherwise. 4. When I wanted a generic birth control prescription he refused to give me a prescription for generics and then told me that he didn't feel comfortable giving me a new prescription because I would want to get pregnant soon. I told him that I didn't but he refused to listen. He said that I should see my endocrinologist to find out if generics were ok for me. When I went to my endocrinologist he was under the assumption that I did want to get pregnant. When I told him I was there for generic birth control he told me that I should get a new doctor. Leaving Dr. Sheu was the best decision I ever made.
Dr.Sheu has been my family doc for 14 years now. I have a trusting relationship with him and he's been willing to help me with my anxiety issues. But as other reviews have said - he definitely looks rushed and tends to judge your condition very quickly(and sometimes wrongly) if you don't explicitly ask him to give you a few minutes to explain things. His staff is also far too busy and is poor with follow ups.
He used to be nice and patient, not sure what has made him a irritable, impatient Dr., he questions his patients with a few normal test results, thinking they are "too sensitive" and implying they are wasting medical resources. As a result, he will be reluctant to issue lab test requisition to these patients' new complaint of their physical condition. And will make the patient feel he/she is here looking for trouble
