Ratings for Princess Margaret Hospital
The hospital is completely overwhelmed with the number of patients they are caring for. Not enough doctors so patients are left waiting for literally HOURS! pharmacy is overwhelmed... They need to redirect some of the MILLIONS they are takingin for researchand start putting that towards care for CURRENT patients. WAY TOO many of them are falling between the cracks as doctors are simply too busy to keep up with their workloads!!
If you have prostate cancer, don't go to this hospital because they will tell you to get rid of the cancer on what they called it Robotic Surgery. You will not get any advice from Doctors. GO TO SUNNY BROOK hospital, they are the best. My doctor is Dr. Loblaw at Odette Cancer.
Worst hospital in North America. Buyer Beware. Thank God I did deleted my online portal and cancelled all follow ups and just see my family doctor and nephrologist at St. Michael's Hospital who is more knowledgeable about chemotherapy than my oncologist was. All clinic trials financed by Big Pharma. Survivorship Program for Breast Cancer is false advertising- Rehabilitation Program for people who have chemo fog, can't walk or dying. , I quit chemotherapy at another hospital after one month because my drug causes cardiac arrest and went the natural route. People of the lie. Want money, not to help patients. Poison, cut burn. As my survivor friend said after he was left 7 months to live by them, 10 years ago: the treatment is worse than the disease.
My husband spent 3 weeks in this hospital last year without seeing the doctor that he needed. When I finally made a complaint, he was seen by a specialist from Mount Sinai he was immediately put in the cardiac ICU. The first week of the 3 week stint he was treated for anxiety with drugs that he did not need. He was told it was all in his head. 1 year later he still cannot lie down due to radiation and chemo side effects. (He probably would never have been as bad as he was only that they wanted to wait 3 months to see if the growth they saw was increasing in size instead of removing it at the time. Then they lost the CT request so it was not until he called to get a time that they realised they made an error. A PET scan was never done although one of the fellows had suggested it!) His radiation had to be cancelled because he could not lie down, then it was resumed 6 moths later as his tumour was growing again. They did make modifications to the machine to accommodate him -- still too little too late. Now he is once again in the hospital (for the second wee). He was supposed to have a feeding tube put in last Monday home on Tuesday. He even called to remind them that he could not lie on his back and they said it was OK....only it was NOT. They are still trying to get a time and day for him to have another doctor look at him to determine whether or not they can do the procedure. He has not been able to eat due to tumour growth obstructing his oesophagus. Now we are told that it MAY be Thursday or Friday. this is ridiculous!!!!!
We need class action lawsuit toward UHN. We need to highlights all the negligence, misdiagnosis, botched surgery that happen at UHN in particular at Princes Margaret hospital. This place is a sham. The doctors here care about their research and most of them are not even qualified to practice. Most of them will not last one day in USA. We really need the lawsuits and contact media to bring accountability to this corrupt network of the hospitals.
worst experience ever they let my brother in law died from cancer. He was constantly complaining of his pain when they induced him of medication but they didn't even bothered observing him for even single night. they let him go home or i can say they forced him to go home. After two days he died. They are the ones who killed him. Worst hospital on planet!!!!!
Beware of this hospital and this doctor Dr. Michael Milosevic!!!! He couldn't care less about treating cancer and making sure it doesn't spread! He's responsible for allowing my moms cancer to spread and of course no one wants to explain why he didn't perform necessary tests! Thanks a lot Doc you have a great life and my mom is dying because of your negligence! If you want to stay alive stay away from this place
Worst experience from start to finish! My husband and I are wondering how and why this hospital is rated as TOP cancer centre!! this hospital has done nothing but harm to my husband from day one. He was diagnosed with oral mucosal melanoma. They left a blade tip in his jaw after the surgery without informing us( Surgery was done by Dr. Irish the top surgeon!!) After 2 years they informed us and that was only because the technician saw the blade tip in the MRI and was concerned!! his medical oncologist Dr. Anna Spreafico tried an immunotherapy on my husband that after 2 sessions,he lost his memory and they had to stop the treatment. She simply told us there is no more treatments unless you want to try that immunotherapy again!! Now that my husband is in excruciating pain in his spine due to metastasis, Dr. Spreafico tells us to go to emergency room and that she cannot prescribe emergency CT scan for my husband to assess whats going on or at least manage his pain!! This is the care we are receiving at PMH. Pathetic... They don't care about your life. Simply they don't...They only care about their stat and the money they can get off of you! It's disgusting to see this is the healthcare in canada today!! Worse than a third world country... Do not trust this hospital with all his staff as they don't care about you as a person...They see you as a number
I usually wait on the average 2 - 5 hours for my chemo therapy session. The hospital makes every excuse in the world for being late but let’s face it, they’re scheduling department needs an overhaul. Sick people sitting in a cold hospital waiting and waiting and waiting to be serviced. This is probably why by the time you get to the chemotherapy chair they give you a warm blanket. I am looking into going elsewhere. Two years ago I had a problem with the loss of eyesight, and they had me wait several hours with my spinal cancer pain in the waiting room at Toronto General Hospital so I could be admitted to the PMH. It was ridiculous. They are Completely disorganized, they tell me to come in two hours before my appointment, and nobody knows why, and I get to spend five or six hours here with still no one getting me into that chemo chair. I noticed there is a lot of negative reviews here and I was surprised to see that. I thought I was the only one. So I’m glad I said something. I think they’re in cahoots with the parking lot attendant which is $4.25 every half an hour. You could end up spending $50 here to get a one hour treatment in the long run. It’s disgusting. And, I forgot to add, that the lottery desk it’s downstairs as you walk in, when you asked to volunteer questions about their lottery you get a really snooty answer back. I haven’t bought or contributed to their lottery since that experience.
