Ratings for Dr. Awad Mortada
Dr. Mortada is now in Chatham, On and we are thrilled to have our first neurologist here. I have been with him for almost a year and have had multiple appointments with him. In our first meeting we meant for almost an hour and he did appropriate tests and askd appropriate questions in his office that had never been done or asked of me since being diagnosed. (Dr. Mortada also always asks me if I have any questions for him. ). He also promised that none of our visits would be that long in the future. He slowly changed and added new medicines for my symptoms to ensure they were doing what they were to do safely. He also said he would continue to monitor the drugs to ensure they are doing what they are to do without damaging my body. He also took the time to show me the MRI of my brain and explained what the MRI meant to me. Some people have complained about him prescribing expensive drugs. We have to remember that a neurologist works with a complicated system in the human body, hence they are always trying to find new and better drugs for this system and will continue to be expensive until the patent allows for noname copies. Next, I have read about how poor and unorganized his staff is in Chatham. The ladies that work with him have been wonderful with me and all my questions. Yes, I have gotten an answering machine that is full, but I just call back during business hours. Their office is extremely busy a year in -with all new patience. We must remember when the phone is not being answered that the doctor may be at the hospital seeing patience. Or... he and hi staff may be taking a long over due couple of days off with their own families. I was so impressed with Dr. Mortada that I told my best friend to go see him for her condition if possible. She was just as impressed with him as I was. Another acquaintance of mine also told me she had a young teen relative go to see him when he first open in Chatham and he was fabulous with her and change her life almost immediately.
The best doctor ever ! Very respectful and kind , treated me for my headaches and severe migraines I feel like a new person ! 90% better life changing ! Wow the staff was amazing too friendly and offered me coffee well trained and professional office with a wonderful doctor ! Thank you Dr. mortada
Chatham is lucky to have Dr. Mortada! On my first visit to his office, he took the time to educate me (and answer my many questions!) on my condition and did a thorough exam before scheduling procedures sooner than I have ever witnessed. His bedside manner was welcoming (as was his office in general) and I left feeling like I was in the best of care. Thank you, Dr. Mortada!
Horrible bedside manner, constantly pushed unneeded medicines, focused solely on one symptom and denied it was caused by my medication. He is extremely arrogant and unclear in his interactions, it took me over 10 months to find out that I had received a diagnosis of epilepsy at the prior appointment. I now drive to a specialist in Calgary and it is WELL worth the trip to escape the "care" of Dr. Mortada, who threw a childish fit and excused me from his care after I expressed concern about how he was treating me.
The best doctor I have ever had. He has rushed to emergency to meet me, called me to check up, entered daily medication with caution because of my extreme reactions to meds. He really cared about me getting my life back after years of migraines. I wish all doctors were this careful about prescription and moving forward with treatment!!!
