Dr. Victor Mak should have his licence revoked
Dr. Victor Mak is so incompetent and dishonest as a doctor that he should have his licence revoked, long ago. Dr. Mak has done much harm to his patients and their families, even resulting in death. How much more harm and how many more loss of lives will a doctor have to cause and then lies to cover up before the CPSO will consider it to be a significant history of complaints?
From ratemds site:
'This Doctor should have his liscence revoked. My father had prostate issues. He had a Turp procedure by Doctor Mak to reduce the swelling in his prostate. After the procedure was done Dr.Mak told my family that he had scrapped and removed part of my dads prostate and should going forward have no problems with urinating. Dr Mak informed us that my father might have some clotting in his urine over the next few weeks but it would pass. 3 weeks after the procedure my Dad was unable to urinate and we brought himto a hospital in Newmarket as Dr Mak was away on March Break. My father had to have a catheter inserted as the clots were so large he was unable to pass them on his own. The hospital staff had trouble inserting the catheter and the procedure was done a few times before successful. The urologist on staff had to go in and do another Terp becasue the clots would not drain through the catheter and he thought my dad had a burst blood vellel in his bladder/prostate. Once the procedure'
'I would NOT recommend this doctor. My father is being treated for cancer and he is always trying to talk less and rush you out. Communication skills very poor - does not give much information voluntarily and he mumbles while talking. Asks questions already recorded on the doctor's chart (he should read!!). No compassion whatsoever. Very indecisive - we tried several treatments with no success and always unexpected surprises. Just running around in circles and with no progress. He recommended to try out a drug which he forgot we already tried out 11 months ago! I suspect a recent emergency case was a result of his mishandling - slow indecisiveness combined with wrong diagnosis - '
‘URGENT WARNING FROM A DOCTOR. In my 26 years of practice in anesthesia and critical care medicine working closely with urologists and surgeons, I seldom see anyone as dishonest and incompetent as Dr. Mak. He lost more than the total body blood in a patient in less than 40 minutes, patient's rectum was perforated, cancer cells were left behind, he toke out fatty tissues instead of lymph nodes and told family that all the lymph nodes were negative for cancer cells, he delayed his dictation and did not mention complications. Lied to family. Worst of all he is still practicing and positions himself as a community healthcare leader. I am a doctor and I know what a bad doctor is. Stop being his victim. Dr. Mak should have his license revoked.’
