Ratings for Dr. Z. Jast
Dr Jast is suppose to be my family Doctor, but when the clinic where I used to see him closed, nobody got in touch with me to tell me! On top of this, I found him but he didn't even dare to bring my file with him at the new clinic. What kind of family Doctor does that? Not to mention the failed he has on following after my first pregnancy. My OB-G asked him to take the relay on some problems I had and he just didn't. I did it my self with the CLSC.
He's not a bad doctor if your ailment is well defined and tangible, for example an injury that's visible or a torn ligament that can be confirmed by feel. When there's an obvious course of action to be taken, he'll act quickly. I have had certain treatments performed on the spot which would ordinarily have been booked for a later appointment. He's also cooperated when I've gone to him for things like specialist referrals. That said, I think it would be a nightmare to go to him with a more internal ailment requiring lab tests and detective work. He doesn't offer a lot of ideas or try to explain how things work for the patient's benefit. He also creates an atmosphere where I feel like I need to 'build a case' before I go see him... if I walk in without having done my own research first, it's likely that I'll list off some symptoms and he'll just look at me like "What do you want me to do about it?"
I was glad that I found a family doctor but now I have changed my mind completely,he is rude and unprofessional.I went to see him because I had pain in my ear and throat and he said it's nothing maybe it's a muscle and that maybe I need physiotherapy.I went to see another doctor and it came out I have throat cancer.
Au début j'étais content de finalement avoir un docteur de famille, mais quelle déception. Je vais le voir pour un mal à l'abdomen et il me prescrit des médicaments pour personnes qui souffre de la Maladie de Crohn avec d'effet secondaires et une dépendance. Je retourne le voir et il m'insulte parce que je prends pas sa médecine. Un des pires docteurs de montréal et je comprends pourquoi. Deux docteurs plus tard on fini par me diagnostiquer une constipation chronique, on est loin de la maladie de Crohn.
When just arrived I was glad to have a family doctor for me and the kids. It had to be Dr jast, and I didn't know him at the time. He has never been useful but fortunately enough, each time I was sick (fracture, stones) I had to go to the Emergency, through which I was forwarded to good specialists. I wouldn't have expected to meet these specialists through Dr Jast. The one time he sent me to a specialist, it turned out that doctor did not take anymore new patients. I went back to Dr Jast and asked for a recommendation for another specialist, and the answer from Dr. Jast was "I don't have another name. Go to any hospital and ask for a replacement doctor". Thhe point is : Dr Jast is my family doctor, and I can't change that given the havoc in medecine in Québec. So, yes, Dr Jast is clueless, but Yes, I'll have to live with that anyway. By the way, where Dr Jast works, the physiologists are great (nothing too do with Dr. Jast anyway :)
