I was lucky and bless to be treated for my Endometrial Cancer back in March with Dr Laframboise plus her team of staffs from front line to the operation room, CIU...etc. I was being treated with care, respect and kindness every departments that I had to visited and will never forget the wonderful experiences for the rest of my life. Thank you all!
I wish I knew then what I know now. Patients and their family are not really allowed to ask questions about the treatment that is recommended. If you do they blow you off like you are some sort of moron and do whatever they initially decided to do. I know my husband had cancer, and at times people do not survive, but I feel he was set up to fail. The doctors did not listen to him and the damage from the treatments done contributed to his death! Doctors here need to loose their superior attitude and LISTEN to their patients and share in their care not dictate their care. It is like they are robots doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a good outcome (everyone gets lucky sometimes). I would not return to this hospital with anyone with cancer. I am not bitter over his death from cancer, my mother died 11 months earlier with cancer and it was not expected to end that way either, but I feel her treatment was so much better at another hospital. I am bitter about my husband's treatment (or lack thereof) at this hospital. They (and I mean multiple doctors) NEVER LISTENED to him or myself!!!!
I have the deepest level of gratitude for the exceptional and compassionate care I received at Princess Margaret while being treated for breast cancer. The Gattuso Rapid Diagnostic Centre is a world-class facility that allows patients to receive a diagnosis in record time, avoiding the standard dreadful waiting period. All medical staff from surgeons and oncologists to nurses, administrative assistants and even porters always treated me with extreme professionalism and kindness - always like a person, never a number. I cannot thank the talented staff of PMH enough for saving my life, and for preserving my dignity in the process. I consider myself extremely blessed to have been treated at Princess Margaret. I owe a lifetime of gratitude to all the many staff who brought me safely through this frightening journey with their knowledge and skill coupled with their special brand of compassion and kindness. It is indeed a special calling.
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.
