Ratings for Lonsdale & 19th Medical Clinic
Dirt, disorganized, overcrowded factory. I attended this clincal for years as a patient of the owner, Dr Goodman. He took all school holidays, including the entire summer off. He discontinued a medication that should have been titrated down slowly and I suffered the consequences. I lost respect and confidence in him as well as the clinic he owns. Stay away.....
The clinic may be a little run down, but the staff and the doctors make up for it! It does get super busy at times so be prepared to wait a little bit. Staff is always running around making sure all patients are being taken care of whether it's on the phone or in the clinic. The doctors are very knowledgable and helpful, they go through each visit thoroughly. I've been going to this clinic for many years.
It feels like a third world medical facility....run down, old and dirty. Large teeming crowded waiting room, and tiny room to eventually see a doctor. Makes you wonder what kind of Doctor would choose to work there. Fortunately I didn't have to find out, as I just got a referral updated and left.
I went there for over 10 years and I hated the place. Busy, unorganized and good luck to talk them on the phone! The only reason I kept going there was my Gp who works there and I most of the time I had to see someone else. I remember once the doctor came and she was standing by the door and her hands on the door !!! I almost know every doctor in that clinic there are very few who are good the rest waste of time
i have visited this clinic on many occasions. It is always crowded and filthy. The staff are overworked and have little time to greet patients as they enter the clinic. The doctors are no better. They have little time or space to give each patient......feels like assembly line medical care of the worst kind. I have come to the clinic with a pre-booked appointment several times, only to find that they have no record of it. I have been prescribed medications that are contraindicated because the physician does not bother to consult the chart before ordering medications. I would not recommend this clinic to anyone , under any circumstances!
This is a busy walking clinic and you can also make appointments; I go to this place more often ever since they introduced a new online booking system called YOCALE.com , now I don't have to call and wait and I can book my last minute appointments anytime at night. They do have a lot of doctors so that helps when my family doctor is unavailable.
As an ex-nurse I am appalled at he state of this hospital. Cleanliness and service should be a top priority but is sadly lacking in this facility. After numerous visits I have decided that although I live on the North Shore I will not be returning to this hospital.
