Rating Feedback for Dr. Mak (2420465)

The rating:
'Dr Mak accepted my 83 year old father under his care at Ryde Hospital in Sydney. Mak NEVER examined my father. He NEVER returned our phone calls. He only met my father once, after we complained to head of emergency medicine at RNSH, an old school friend. When Mak finally showed, after my father had been languishing virtually untreated for almost THREE weeks, the 'doctor' bustled in like the big I Am. He wouldn't stop talking, mainly telling us how well qualified he was and how many important people he knew. Partly as a result of Dr Mak's failure to treat my father, Dad is entering his third month in hospital (and up to 5 different hospitals) treating various conditions ACQUIRED IN HOSPITAL. Bad doctors prosper as geriatricians because old people die. In one way it does not matter if an old man dies. But it matters a great deal if they are just left to rot. Be very careful if you are a patient of Dr Jenson Mak.'

The staff at Ryde Hospital including the junior doctors, specialist doctors, nursing and allied health professionals, are one of the best people to serve the general public of the Ryde City Region. They are also courteous, helpful and hardworking. I understand that Dr Mak undergoes ward rounds 3-4 times a week (including weekends) and frequently liaises with his staff, family members and team members on his patients (as do all the general physicians who work at the hospital). I am sure that it 'matters a great deal' to Dr Mak and his team each aspect (medical & psychological) of each patient's care.
