Ratings for Dr. Shailla Vaidya
Don't go to this doctor for psychotherapy. Her group sessions are interesting but is an awful therapist. She made my problems feel really trivial during a hard time for me. She is a bad listener and doesn't ask questions. Generally she seems disinterested. Multiple times in the last session she just said "I don't know what to say." I really needed help that day and didn't feel well served at all.
Dr. V. provided me with psychotherapy; however she is not good at this. She is too academic and projects her own issues onto patients. So much so that she asked me to leave because I triggered some of her own issues!!She doesn't listen to her patients, but instead interrupts/lectures a lot. Each visit was a new lecture and ideas but never consistent. The fancy office and cognition is not what patients need. Very disappointing to say the least. She made me cry and doubt myself rather than help me. Not recommended for psychotherapy!
Dr. V. provided me with psychotherapy. She is too academic and projects her own issues onto patients. She doesn't listen to her patients, but instead interrupts a lot. It's obvious she doesn't have a lot of clinical experience. She lacks confidence and seems flustered and disorganized. She does not command her patients' respect. Tries too hard.
I'm thrilled that Dr.Chow is now my physician at Bridgepoint. It was great that Bridgepoint continued our care and accepted us as patients after Dr. Vaidya's departure. Dr. Vaidya was flustered and unorganized - certainly intelligent, but not made for family medicine. I hope she's doing we'll at the walk-in clinic. This would suit her style better.
I think she was forced out but Bridgepoint should consider her clients. I really liked her as a doctor she was very attentive to my needs and supportive to my decission on my personal health. I'm still looking for her so I hope she sets up a clinic soon somewhere. I think I heard that she was at sherbourn health center but I have not check tha out as yet. If anyone finds her please post it. Thanks
I have the feeling Vaidya was squeezed out in some McGuinty political nonsense. I thought she was great but her administrative assistant was totally incompetent and caused me much grief. I am desperate to find Dr Vaidya as no other doctor in this whole province seems to be taking new patients. What a mess this system is. Anyway, I found her. She is on TWITTER but no office as yet it seems. Here is link.... https://twitter.com/ShaillaVaidya
Dr. Vaidya is sorely missed by me, she being the only doctor in Toronto I could trust with my medical and non medical issues. I have a feeling that a workaholic such as this doctor is, is right now enjoying a long well-deserved vacation, but please come back and serve the needy, Doc! We miss you!
I was her patient for about one year while she was at Bridgepoint, and while I liked the fact she wasn't stingy when it came to ordering tests to double check possible issues, she didn't strike me as an 'excellent' doc in the way of knowledge or bedside manner. But my main reason for the average rating was the way she departed Bridgepoint, leaving her patients high and dry and wondering WTH. And aside from a vague letter she sent a least one month after we heard the news from Bridgepoint, we've never heard from her again and cannot find any trace of her anywhere...? Ridiculous. I don't think "reliability" is too much to ask for in a doctor.
