I saw Dr. Kemkaran because my current GP was retiring, and Dr. Kemkaran was accepting new patients. I waited for an hour past my appointment time. Okay, I've waited longer at other doctors. I don't know - I just didn't get a good vibe off this guy. He seemed a bit amateur. I wish I could be more specific than that. I found that I just didn't trust him. I've since found a much more professional physician at my old clinic.
I sat in the waiting room for 3.5 hours and had no one even say it will be a long wait. I seen 6 people who are pissed off get up and leave because of the mannerism of the staff in his office they treat you like you're not even there. You will have better luck seeing a veterinarian. He is a arrogant individual who thinks he is God I seen him walk up to the receptionist and I asked him how long it may take to be seen .I got a stupid look like how dare you speak to me.. as far as I'm concerned beware people stay away from this idiot..... maybe of he should try loosing some weight so he can get his xxxxx in gear. What a LOSER!!!!!! I also am walking out
I was referred to Dr Kemkaran a few months ago. I had a full checkup and blood work done. He is exceptionally thorough and very intelligent and caring. I have been so impressed with his follow up and depth of understanding. Medical technicians and specialists he deals with speak of him with exceptional regard for his abilities and knowledge.
He has a great sense of humour, his gregarious nature is rather refreshing in a medical doctor! Some people who have reviewed him here seem to find him abrupt or annoying, and conclude that he is aloof and uncaring. They are wrong. I find that he is grounded, very down to earth, and a no nonsense kind of guy. He is so intelligent that he cuts through the mire quickly and addresses your matters professionally and with a depth of understanding that is rare. Possibly these dissatisfied people need too much coddling. I would rather have an engaging and no nonsense doctor like Dr Kemkaran any day!
He genuinely cares about his patients, and I am confident that he runs behind often because he takes the time to engage you thoroughly, and really think through your situation. It became evident rather swiftly that this Doctor REALLY knows his stuff!! He stands head and shoulders above most other doctors I have interacted with.
I call his office just before my appointment time to see if he is behind. The staff tell you how many are ahead of you if you ask. I have never had to wait more than about 20 mins.
I've been a patient if Dr. Kemkaren now for about 10 years. In that time I've always waited 2-4 hours even with an appt. today was the last straw when my daughter went to see him and waited 6 hours & still never got in to see him & she was so sick she puked in the waiting room & his staff didn't bat an eye. My daughter commented he was late & sauntered in at 11:30am when he was supposed to be in at 11am then leaves for lunch from 1pm to 2:30pm! My daughter said she was told he had 3 appts & 3 walk in including her & she still didn't get in! He was the one who wanted her to come in due to test results! As well his incompetent staff put my name as a walk in not my daughter's!! He is never available on weekends & has moved to 5 clinics in 10 years likely due to his procrastination, lack of respect of a patient's time, arrogance, inconsideration, lack of empathy, delusion on giving advice but clearly not living it as he is obese & constantly talking about his personal life. Does he really think it's appropriate to do so or that we are his psychiatrists?? I no longer trust this doctor with my child's well being! If I could rate this is called DR a 0 I would! Kenneth Kimkaren us incompetent in his personal & professional life!! I'm tired of each time I see him I have to book a vacation day as his hours he actually works us so limited & when I do see him he has no idea why I'm there when he asked his unfriendly & rude receptionists to call me to come in due to blood test results!! Most Drs leave Canada to work in the USA but not him , he left the USA to work here knowing we're desperate for drs & have a shortage plus losing his license there fir doling out too many prescription drugs !!! No wonder you change clinics & locations so often & lose patients I'm sure!!! I'm so done with this awful incompetent unprofessional idiot!!!
Dr. Kemkaran is an extreme example of an inadequate doctor. I seen him for over two years not out of satisfaction in his performance but out of necessity as there were no doctors taking new patients in my area. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and tumours by specialists prior to me having to find a general practitioner. Dr. Kemkaran was the only one taking new patients so I went to see him. The initial meeting seemed positive: he was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. It all went downhill from there. Each and every scheduled appointment involved: a two to three hour wait, him talking incessantly about his life, test results were never fully disclosed unless I asked about them, he failed to accurately read those test results which resulted in a situation in which I was dangerously low in certain nutrients which further exacerbated my disorder, he suggested treatment for a disorder that I did not have. Not a doctor if you require informed, consistent, quality care.
IT IS OK FOR PROFESSIONALS TO TEACH BY PERSONAL EXAMPLES OR STORIES. HE IS A PERSON. I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING PERSONAL AND WOULD NOT CARE. HE IS WORTH THE WAIT ASKS THE RIGHT QUESTIONS HAD SPOT ON THOROUGH TESTS DIAGNOSIS in 5 mins more than two hours with emergency VIA ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. THEREFORE HE IS THE BEST FRIEND A PATIENT COULD HAVE WHO WILL DIAGNOSE OR CATCH CANCER IN TIME BESIDES A DOCTOR LIKE THAT. HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR I EVER HAD more than a gp and will refer you to the best docs in the city. too bad you cannot please everyone. who cares if he wore sweatpants. i never noticed what or if he did. he is a doctor not a model. if he falls behind it is because each patient will get the treatment and time they need or deserve. if that isnt worth the wait or the proper preventative care what is. CUT THIS GREAT PROFESSIONAL SOME SLACK HE IS AN ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY. THE STAFF IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WAITS. anyone with some sense would appreciate his professional expertise.
