    Having read previous negative reviews I was curious to say the least. The doctor I saw did not resemble those reviews at all. He was quick, obviously very bright, explained in detail what was happening with my wife in a caring, professional manner. He gave a clear description of my wife’s Neurodegenerative disorder and how it affects her eyes, and her vision. It might’ve been a bit technical for some, but I appreciated it.

    I personally cannot say enough good things about this doctor. There are many unprofessional doctors out there but Dr.Kowal is one of the best. He is very thorough and wants to get to the root of his patients problems and help them to feel better. Every time I walk into the office I know I will be listened to and taken care of.

    I saw Dr. Kowal on an eye issue, diagnosed as BRAO, and found him knowledgeable, friendly, well informed about my history,
    and having the time to explain the issue and potential treatment. I wish I could say this about every specialist I have seen in the last few years;

    I saw Dr Kowal on a referral from the hospital. Wasn’t sure why I was there and he explained with great detail. I found him knowledgeable, efficient and felt better all day because of his demeanour.

    It seems like Dr. Kowal is a good doctor for some patients. I can see all the good comments here, but I cannot believe how differently he acted when he saw us.

    Unfortunately he was awful to my boyfriend. My boyfriend got a permanent damage to his vison, which affects his driving ability and career in future. So we were very serious and wanted to ask for some resources to help him, including possible rehabilitation or any government/social help he could possibly get. Dr. Kowal was very cold. I assume he had no information to offer us. He could have said that. He could have said simply “I’m sorry” then we would have been able to get it eventually.

    When we were trying to explain our situation, he cut us off many times, acting like he didn’t want to talk with us anymore. Here are some comments he gave us.

    My boyfriend’s current company is not located near transit. We wanted to ask if any help could be available to let him commute to work or drive with some devices or so if exists. So we wanted to explain the situation. Then he said “Move there then”

    We were explaining driving is a big part of my boyfriend’s future career. We just wanted to explain the situation, but he cut us off and told him, “Change your career. You can work at retails.”

    We asked “Is there any help available? Is there any possible disability status to help him get around in and around the city?” Then he told us, “Not being able to drive is not disability.”

    When I was so sad, he said, “I have to do this three times a week, I hate my job!!!”

    He asked us “Do you have any question? ” after that. But, really, how could I reply to this? How can we ask more questions? He didn’t care to slow down to make us understood either. He just wanted to finish talking to us.

    I lost my previous husband due to terminal illness, and my boyfriend have survived very complicated serious illness as well. So I have seen sooooo many doctors/specialists in Canada than most people and I can tell he has been the worst doctor I met, by far. One of my family members is a retired doctor in Ontario, and I had to talk with him as I was so angry. He also agrees Dr. Kowal’s comments and attitude were not professional. He said, if Dr. Kowal had to say he hates his job, he should have said that after closing the door, not in front of a patient whose life has just eternally changed. Dr. Kowal is apparently smart and knowlegable in his field. But he probably needs more education and training to deliver bad news to patients professionally, as a doctor. Or maybe he needs anger management lesson. Or he should stop seeing patients, just stuck in the lab handling data, rather than seeing humans with emotions, because clealy he hates his job.

    I felt so sorry for the resident/fellow doctor who was standing there when Dr. Kowal angrily left the room. But, we really appreciate he was there to show his sympathy to us.
