Ratings for Dr. Sheila Laredo
I saw Dr. Laredo for a few years....if you can call it that. She is clearly very knowledgeable, however I don't think her patients benefit from this. You spend more time with her student doctors then you do with her. I sit through an appointment with her firing off directives at her student, and at the end they miss some of the things that were put forward. The wait is insane, and the last appointment I had with her, I walked out of the waiting room 1.5 hours after the scheduled time, and all my appointments were booked in the afternoon because I was told her has meetings in the mornings. I had a long drive ahead of me, and children to tend to and getting up at 8pm because of traffic is not an option for me. Maybe she should schedule her meetings in the PM and give consideration to her patients for a change
Dr Laredo is an amazing doctor. Obviously she is very bright and at the top of her field, but she is also incredibly kind, compassionate and does her best to help her patients in ways they need. She is flexible, and when I expressed concerns about the treatment and asked for alternative suggestions, she went through options without judgement. She does listen, but is firm when presenting the approach she feels is best for her patients and is able to back it up with research findings. I do not understand some of the negative comments below and have nothing but good things to say about our visit. Yes, the residents can be annoying, but someone has to teach them! I highly recommend Dr Laredo.
I've been seeing Dr. Laredo for a few years and I agree with the statement below. I always think it's going to be different every time I visit her, but she has NEVER, I mean NEVER examined me. Especially knowing that thyroid cancer runs in my family and that I have a few nodules that need to be monitored. I also have PCOS and that's her specialty. It's extremely frustrating since she's the doctor, she should double check what her students are doing. What if her students made a mistakes? what if they missed something?. It's too bad but I no longer see her and her students. I hope people who read this understand that Dr. Laredo is very nice and knowledgeable but she will NOT exam you at all!
I've been seeing Dr Laredo for a while now and she has never examined me. That's very frustrating when her students do all the work. She has never stopped to think, what if her students miss anything! I need to go elsewhere. Dr Laredo can teach all the students she wants but she must examine as well not just her students.
I have been in the care of Dr. Loredo and her team for some time now. Her nurses are friendly, caring and go over-and-above to answer my questions. I have never had the same resident twice, but all of the residents have been excellent, thorough, personable and attentive. Dr. Lorado is outstanding - incredibly intelligent, caring, compassionate and she is very transparent with what I can expect for my follow-up testing and appointments. Although Dr. Loredo only has office hours once per week, she has scheduled me in, last minute, in an emergency situation. I feel completely lucky and blessed to be in the very capable hands of this amazing team.
I had alot of faith and trust in Dr. Laredo in the beginning. However because I called to cancel a few appointments due to illness I got told by my family doctors office that she will no longer be my doctor. Save yourself lots of time and aggrivation don't go to the endocrinologists at Women's College.
I have seen Dr. Laredo for almost 12 years. She is a great doctor but she is to busy. Some important things are missed by her staff. Her nurse Leah runs the place and she can be very angry. I learned that you must get along with Leah or ELSE!!
Dr. Laredo is in a legaue of her own! She cares about her patients and their well being and even though you sometimes wait long before seeing the doctor she does not rush through her appointment and takes the time to explain things. Would not want to see any other doctor!
Saw Dr Laredo for gland issue; waited 6 months for that appoitment and waited for her over 1 hour on that day, she came in with an intern and a resident. the resident explained my issue to her, the conversation was between the resident, Dr Laredo and the intern. She didn't even speak to me or look at me. she was explaining all the different scenarios to them that don't even apply to me. it was like being in a classroom and she was teaching her students and she forgot that i was the patient and in the room. she didn't ask if i had any questions and told me to come back in 6 months. the resident also didn't give me any feedback. great teacher - lousy dr to patient. i interrupted their conversation and she replied back to them, as if i wasn't in the room. what a waste of my time. i'm glad ohip paid for the appoitment and not me.
Dr. Laredo is the best doctor. Knowledgeable, caring and excellent staff. I feel so lucky to have been connected to her services. if you're looking for a fabulous Endocrinolgist, try to get in with her. You will thank your lucky stars! She found out the problem I was having straight away, and put me on the right path to fix it. She is one of the most compassionate people I've ever met -- just a wonderful experience.
