Ratings for Dr. Ahmer A Karimuddin
Dr. Karimuddin is hands down the best doctor I have ever encountered. I had been going through a 3-year battle with a "mysterious" pain in my bottom that went undiagnosed and misdiagnosed by 2 previous specialists. After seeing Dr. Karimuddin, he saw the pain I was in, took his time, assessed every bit of facts I gave him and properly diagnosed me. A piece of info that was met with "that gets worse as you get older" by one doctor was interpret as a vital piece of info from Dr. Karimuddin. He had me change all of my previous ways of dealing with the issue and gave me some amazing advice. I walked into his office having had an incredibly low quality of life due to the nature of the condition and 3 months later, my quality of life improved drastically. My condition had me at 10% and with the doctors help I got up to about a 70% which was huge! In order to go to 100%, I required surgery which he performed. Dr. Karimuddin saved my life and cared for me when no one would. I have no words to thank him enough. He is truly passionate about what he does, constantly improving his practice and knowledge. Other CRSs' that I had seemed to not care as much, but Dr. K keeps up to date on latest best practices and procedures. I don't care how long it takes to see him, it's better to wait and see a competent specialist than it is to see someone who isn't and who causes more damage to the area. Thank you Dr. K, you're a real hero to many people.
I do not have enough words to praise this wonderful doctor. He treated both my wife and I and we both feel a depth of gratitude for his skill, knowledge, and genuine caring. He spared both of us from having to have more radical and more invasive surgeries.
Dr K .. Hands down an exceptional doctor! As an RN and as a recovering rectal cancer patient my praise couldn't be higher. Intelligent, innovative, practical and compassionate. Don't even want to think about we're I would be now if it wasn't for his skill set. He referred me to a colleague for other treatment options. Explained in detail options and risks his procedure would entail. At times it wasn't any easy road, but his character shone thru with his availability, bedside manor, step by step info as needed and walked alongside us during this difficult time. My family and I are forever grateful for his service.
Dr Karimuddin is amazing!! He recently performed colon surgery on my son who has been suffering terribly with Crohn's disease. He is so informative and takes time to listen to all your concerns. He has a great bedside manner. So friendly and puts you at ease. It's only been 4 weeks since my sons surgery but he already feels like a new man. He's only 18 and I feel this surgery has given him a new lease on life! Thank you so much!!! Your the BEST!!
Empathetic & exceptionally brilliant, top of his field, only surgeon in Canada that helped. Before surgery, in severe pain & low quality of life negatively affecting all aspects of my life. Had seen other surgeons who had no clue what they were doing, didn’t care, & created complications. Truly felt hopeless & was sure I’d never experience relief. He can’t miraculously cure disease but actually cares about helping patients experience a better quality of life & does what is possible to help. Truly improved quality of life & mental/emotional well-being. Not only saves lives but greatly improves quality of those with non-life-threatening illnesses. Hope I don’t need more surgery, if so, I’ll wait as long as it takes to see him. He listens, remembers, doesn’t rush, clearly explains & treats tailored to individual cases. Thank you! Note: long waits are because our health care system is horrendous & works against surgeons & patients - nothing to do with the surgeons.
