Ratings for Dr. Dustin Potiuk
Dr Potiuk is ok if you only need an annual check, but if you have health issues, good luck for getting explanation on test results and the cause of the problem. He is unhelpful, does not listen. To summarize my experience, I would say he cannot care less!!!
My Advice is STAY AWAY IF YOU CAN! In my opinion: really bad. He seems to care only about booking patients even when test results are fine (eg: routine blood), just to get you in. Does not seem to want any question and does not offer any explanation for the meds he or tests he prescribes.
BEWARE! This guy is awful. He cares more about having a book of clients that do not really need important care than he does actually helping people. Punch in, bumble around the office, punch out. The moment you actually have to see him about something that is serious he is quick to disregard, and ditch you as a patient for whatever reason he can come up with (fractured relationship or some BS). He gets away with it because there are very few doctors accepting new patients in BC. Thanks for your help Dr.!..... not.
Dr Potiuk is not for everyone; his communications skills take time to become accustomed to yet he comes through when you need him. He knows his stuff. For us, it's been a matter of being prepared at the consultation, understanding that Drs are human too, providing a concise set of symptoms/issues and working with him. And yes, occasionally asking for specific tests.
I've been dealing with Dr. Potiuk for many years, like for about 10yrs, and when I first met him I said that I had a number of medical problems that need to be dealt with and that I don't see him of colds. He was liking having patients that have changes to him. He is a good listener and doesn't time the visit. He is easy to talk with, knows what he's talking about, and wants to keep up with a few of the things that I've dealing with. As he works in a drop in clinic go the times for the appointments can be a little off time and isn't having any clients appointments as he's the drop in doctor at those times. He's the best doctor, I've had and I've had a few, because I feel that he cares.
