If it wasn’t for PMH, I would not have a chance to treat my recurrent breast cancer in my armpit. Dr. Wey Leong and his team were the best. I came here for a second opinion, he performed the surgery that was turned down by another surgeon because it was “too risky “, and he did it with ease. He had the support of a very caring team of nurses and assistants. This place gives hope to people. I can’t imagine working in a place where giving bad diagnoses and working with deadly cancers happen day after day. PMH is having a lot of renovations so hopefully the facilities will be better in the future.
As a patient in two of the hospital's clinics, I have had a mixed experience. Every oncologist with whom I have dealt in the G.I. clinic has been amazing. Each of them has treated me with respect and has been willing to answer questions. They have also been compassionate. My experience in dealing with doctors in the melanoma clinic has been abysmal. They have been patronizing and condescending without exception. Compassion has not been the long suit of any of the doctors with whom I have dealt. A lab rat might be treated better. To any patient of this clinic, my advice is to seek a second opinion and do your own research before undergoing treatment. Your life depends on it. Don't expect the doctors to give a damn. To them, you are just another subject in a science experiment. As for cleanliness, PMH is the filthiest hospital that I have ever visited.
My brother was diagnosed with liver cancer. pathology was wrong as per top cancer center in USA. By the time we got the pathology results. Wrong Chemo was provided to him. He died very shortly. I have read so many wrong pathology results from this hospital which is very serious and results in deaths of many. Patient affairs covered up the mistakes.
My brother was diagnosed with Leukemia and admitted October 30. After a valiant fight he passed away on March 15. The only tIme he left PMH during this time was to go to Mount Sinai ICU (3 times). From day one, the care, treatment, attention, dignity that my brother received from EVERYONE at PMH and Mount Sinai was excellent. I would like to thank Dr. Rostov, Dr. Shuh and Matt (physiotherapist) for all that they did. I wish I could remember everyone’s names as they deserve the individual recognition as well. W
I have a difficult time understanding these ratings. I have been going to PMH for 10 years and have found my Oncologist, the Radiation Oncologists, the nurses and support staff excellent. I have been referred within the University Health Network, when needed, in a timely manner. Palliative care/pain management has been excellent. The team responds quickly to my needs when new pain arises. There is always someone you can call, even on weekends. Pain is sometimes very difficult to get under control and it is hard to watch loved ones struggle. Everyone’s cancer is different. I feel lucky to still be alive and have had many challenges since this was first diagnosed. As we know, our hospitals are underfunded and overcrowded. Many more people are being diagnosed with cancer due to the aging of the population so wait times are inevitable. Yes research in drug development is done at PMH. Every world class hospital is engaged in research and drug trials. We go in with high expectations but unfortunately not everyone survives their cancer diagnosis, despite best efforts, but as far as hospitals go PMH deserves their world class status.
