Ratings for Dr. Puja Saxena
I was new to the city and needed to see a doctor right away. Just like everyone else commented below. She seemed very unsure about anything she said. I thought she was new to the city too until I checked the oldest review here was made in 2015. She seemed very unfamiliar with various standard procedures in the Eastern Health Authority such as referrals. Unfortunately I couldn't find a family doctor that accepted new patients, so I had to see her again since all my test were sent to her. I will definitely go somewhere else after all these.
I can believe this doctor is still in practice and this clinic is still open. I started seeing her because I was pregnant and didn't have a family dr. There was a big sign outside the clinic advertising a family dr taking patients. She was very unsure of everything and looked up every question I had online. She was always late, and I don't mean appointments running late, I mean on a couple of occasions she walked into the office 30mins after my appointment was scheduled with a waiting room full of people waiting on her. After I had my baby I called to make an appointment for the two of us for our 1 week check up only to be told that she doesn't take patients under the age of 16! How do you not tell your pregnant patient that! And why are you advertising as a "family" dr! Luckily I was able to find someone else to take us on very short notice and have a great dr now.
Do not waste your time with this doctor. SO unreliable and offers little to no help at all. Hardly speaks to you or makes eye contact. Did not follow up on any specialist referrals or requisitions. The office was suppose to call me back but never did. Complete waste of time making an appointment with her, if you can even get in at all because she is NEVER in the office. When staff were asked when she would be back in clinic the response I was given was "I dunno what to tell ya". So unprofessional. I second the comment below in saying that you are much better off going to a walk-in clinic.
Worst doctor ever, not sure how she got the license to practice. My guess is she must have bribed to become a doctor. She searches all her information on Google, which you can do sitting at home. I would not recommend anyone to go see her, not even for cold symptoms. My experience over 4 visits with her, she re-scheduled 3 of those appointments. When asked about specific medications she had no confidence to prescribe it or I should say had no knowledge of it (had to search on Google). It took me 4 visits to figure out what a waste of time she has been. Please save yourself time/energy and find someone else or go to a walk-in clinic instead or emergency.
Worst doctor I have ever been to. I only went because I was new to the city and needed a doctor. She looks on her laptop for all her information, barley looks at you and makes you feel more confused then when you came in. I had an inconsistency with my blood work and when I asked her the cause she looked it up online and listed off a bunch of different problems. I will never be going back. I am not quite sure how she got her license if she finds everything online.
