Ratings for Dr. Adel Nakhla
Terrible doctor. After years of ignoring my mental health issues (anxiety and depression) my parents finally made me go in to ask to be referred to a therapist. Nakhla prescribed me medication and told me that he is more trained than a therapist and asked me to come back to see him every 2 weeks. He is not trained as a therapist and refused to refer me despite me telling him I felt uncomfortable talking about my issues with him and would prefer to speak with a female therapist due to the nature of my issues. When I went in for my "therapy session" I had to wait a few hours despite having an appointment. And during the session, he asked about my sleeping habits and when I told him I had trouble sleeping he immediately prescribed me a sleeping pill. Here's the kicker, my pharmacists saw the prescription and thank god she is familiar with my medical history as the sleeping pill he prescribed is an ANTI-PSYCHOTIC used to treat patient with schizophrenia. AND when taken with the anti-depressants he prescribed me a week ago could trigger severe heart attacks. Thank god my pharmacist decided to double check the list of medications that was lethal if taken in conjunction. I don't want to imagine what would happen if I went to some random pharmacist this time. And when she called his office to inform him of this, he refused to answer the phone and the receptionist would always just tell her to fax the info over. My parents were so upset and confronted him about it and he blamed the pharmacist for not faxing him the information?? I've never been back to see him after that. However, I feel like I should report him somewhere because of this next story. Back about 5 years ago, my sister and I went to see him as we wanted to check to see if we had Polycystic ovaries. We had all the symptoms. He basically laughed in our faces and said it wasn't impossible because we weren't obese and he told us not to self-diagnose. We left it at that. About a week ago, my sister started having severe pains in her tummy that she couldn't ignore. Our new doctor checked her blood and sent her to get an ultrasound. TA-DAH! She had cysts on her ovaries! It was the worst timing and she was going to Cuba soon and she needed to go to the emergency to check if they were in torsion as she would need to her surgery immediately then. If Nakhla had just checked our blood work for it, this could've been avoided so so long ago. I feel like his behaviour should be reported as he his arrogance and lack of medical knowledge has endangered his patients. He definitely is only out to get money from his patients and he does not actually listen or check the symptoms his patients bring to his attention. And he is definitely not a good therapists!!!
Folks , Dr nakhla is working his usual schedule from his other clinic on Tenth line . I was quite happy to finally get to him after confusion from people at the previous clinic not telling me where he is and his receptionist called me to inform me of his practice. Reach him at 905 858 9393 , Our records are still at Glen gate though. Glad to see him again.
Staff is OK. But the doctor and wait times are horrid. Absolutely ZERO respect for the patients and their time. Doesn't listen to you or your symptons. Cuts you off, interrupts you. Very rude and condscending, when talking to you. Very unhelpful and fake and artificial. Avoid this guy at any cost. Any walk in clinic is better than this guy. Not fit to be a doctor. People only come to him, because there is a shortage of doctor's. He is the last resort. Not very knowledgeable either.
I've known Dr Nakhla for over 10 years now..He is very caring, hard worker , Caring, very humble and very knowledgeable in his work. He never pushed me for anything.. He is very professional. People who seen him for a while know all of that and appreciate him. I ' very seen at the reception some people of the other sick doctor very abusive and rude to the staff and him .He is loosing his usual smile with some of them but as I know him..He try hard to please everyone..Good man.
Very rude and disrespectful. Almost always 2-3 hrs late for your appointment. Makes you visit him 2-3 times for things that can be done in one visit, so he can keep on billing OHIP each time. Has a pharmacy on his premises right inside the clinic. Tries to push you there . Keep your own pharmacist , don't transfer your prescriptions to his pharmacy. Thinks he is a specialist, when he should be referring you to a specialist, when he doesn't understand something. Hopefully someone investigates him. Not sure how he became a doctor in Canada, he clearly doesn't belong here & is an insult & disgrace to the profession. Sadly there is a shortage of good family doctors in Canada, hence you are forced to go to people like this, as you have no other choice.
Excellent doctor, one of the very best in my area indeed. He is been my family doctor for over 10 years now and I remember waiting for him only when it is very busy in winter peak times as I would at other clinics, but generally he is on time. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Dr. Nakhla is very knowledgeable and would refer to specialist when required even for second opinion and he write down the referral on the spot. He is very well liked and highly respected for what he offer to his patients and to the community in Mississauga.
