Ratings for Dr. Marc Sherkin
Dr. Sherkin's new assistant, Nicole, should get 5 stars. Any low ratings you may see here on "Staff" do not refer to her, as she recently joined. Best office help I ever saw. The other staff (S and P) are no longer there. Now, your calls will get returned and Nicole stays on top of everything. By law they are required to report that kind of thing to the Ministry. Sounds like the person below doesn't know that CPAP equipment is very expensive. If you don't buy it and go untreated, and don't improve, they have to report it by law. You're not forced to buy the expensive stuff or go with any supplier. To the other poster, you're confusing the doctor's practice with the hospital who runs the sleep clinic in that building vs. an American doctor (Dr. Appleton) who runs a private clinic that was recently built to US luxury standards.
I tend to think that all the five stars that are attributed to Dr. Sherkin were not patients, but those close to the doctor who wanted to compensate for all the negative comments about him. His sleep study is NOT thorough. His letter to my doctor was disgraceful. The hospital harassed me to go see him, but I have heard from other patients of his that he is rude and not very people friendly. He also breaches confidentiality by sending salespersons to his patients to purchase expensive equipment for Sleep Apnea and if you refuse to buy this equipment, they threaten to inform the Ministry of Transportation that you should not have your driver's licence. Not very impressed with this doctor, who should be reported to the College of Physicians and Surgeons who should look into the breaches in confidentiality and whether or not he gets a kickback from the salesperson sent to harass you in buying their stupid machines.
went to see this doctor when he worked for Appleton clinic it was a state of the art facility 5 star all the way. He no longer works there and it's to bad. Due to this I won't be seeing him further as he WONT refer there . Sorry Dr Sherkin I won't be staying in the dump younrefer to now you should have never left appletons were you have a 5 star experience breakfast tv and clean state of the art showers.
Not very good experience. staff has no coordination. One make appointment, other say opposite. We had 3 visits, could not meet Dr Sherkin last 2 visits. Both appointments were not honoured. They gave written appointment, but there was no Dr. today. Did not call to tell patient about change in appointment.Do not pick phone calls, does not return voice message. 83 yr mother has to return without seeing Dr. Now telling come on Friday. How can we trust 3rd time. Horrible, no respect for Seniors. Eating public money by not providing service. Going to file official complaint.
This Doctor is to the point, tells you what you NEED to hear for your benefit. He really cares about his patients and is very passionate. He also takes the time to ensure that you understand what is going on with your foot and uses analogies that are very easy to understand. He genuinely cares and makes you feel welcomed. He will follow up and ensure YOU are happy. He has confidence in what he does which made me feel reassured I will be taken care of.
One of the nicest people I have ever met, Doctor or otherwise. He was kind and had a sense of humour. Unlike a lot of Doctors Dr. Sherkin really seems to like people. Dr. Sherkin is a person that you would like to have a coffee with because he seems to be a very interesting person. His depth of knowledge was detailed but explained in terms that a layperson could understand. Dr. Sherkin was the the thrid Doctor I have seen for my sleep apenea, but the first to clearly explain the overall impact that this condition has on your general quality of life. I would highly recommend him to anybody. In addition to his good bedside manner his sleep tech was very good and kind.
Dr. Sherkin is one of the most careing and knowledgeable physicians I have known. He takes the time needed to properly examine and diagnose a patient's concerns. He goes out of his way to help people and has a stellar reputation amongst his peers and patients alike. He is not a chiropodist and does not do bunion surgeries so the comment previosuly made should be removed from his ratings
I'm Not sure the bunion patient on this list has the correct physician, I never met a pulmonoligist that takes off bunions. The doc was compassionate and a great listener when my husband and I saw him yesterday in Northern Ontario. He did not poo poo my husbands symptoms, he adjusted the meds for sleep, and basically provided excellent patient care , after a long year of us arguing with the family doctor for adequate RLS meds. There is hope!!!!!!!
