Ratings for Dr. Pravin Shukle
Dr Shukle and his staff do not communicate effectively when it comes to who/how many patients are waiting and how far behind he is. Waited two hours to be seen for ten minutes because of his careless attitude as well as that of his staff who are probably afraid of him. Totally unacceptable service.
I'm a medical doctor and I see Dr. Shukle for my own care (I have hypertension) and I have nothing but good to say about his bedside manner, his knowledge base is phenomenal and his office is very well run with great staff who are well trained. He runs late sometimes, yes, even for colleagues, but it's nothing out of the norm for a specialist with a waiting list a mile long! I'm very thankful for the care he has provided me.
There is an unethical troll who is posting BS about Dr. Shukle. I was an internist at the QCH when Dr. Shukle worked there. I shared call with him for almost five years. He resigned from there around the time I did, to spend more time with his family, but still has visiting privileges at the QCH. It was a pleasure working with him, and his patients love him. I spoke to Dr. Shukle tonight and he will ask rateMD to release the identity of this troll, as the comments are false and slanderous. To be clear, Dr. Shukle has never lost privileges anywhere.
Dr. Shukle is my mother's cardiologist. She is 92 and various health issues. Dr. Shukle has always been very kind with her and talks directly to her, unlike some doctors who barely acknowledge she is in the room. Given her age and her health issues, he is pragmatic and balances her care with quality of life. He doesn't push medications and tests on her that at her age are unpleasant and she doesn't need. He is pleased to see her every visit and doesn't treat her like she's 5. He is a genuinely nice doctor.
I wish I could rate him and his staff on professionalism, they would get a "terrible". I visited for a heart consult. I was left alone in the middle of my exam, and noticed the computer had the personal information of the previous patient. I could see all the personal information, including date of birth, address, condition. It was a terrible breach of privacy. The staff and the doctor were rude, did not follow up with me after the appointment, and the offices were dirty. I would not recommend him or his staff.
Agree with the previous post. Awesome doctor. I am a nurse at the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where he used to work. He was one of the most popular doctors there among the nurses. Many nurses are now his patients. He has one of the highest number of doctors as his patients. When doctors and nurses choose to go to a doctor for their own care, you know you have hit gold.
I truly believe that this doctor saved my mother's life. Very astute and hardworking. Phoned my mom at 10 pm when a rhythm on a monitor was not right. Squeezed us in the next morning. Staff are also great. Agree with a previous comment that he doesn't suffer fools gladly, because he isn't afraid to tell you off if you are being a jerk. (I also agree its entertaining. He is really funny!)
He is great if you are sick, but if you are a person who is a hypochondriac he tends to be a bit rude. I saw him bite the head off a patient who was rude to one of his staff. It was very entertaining, but most people in the waiting room agreed with him. All in all a great doc.
