my experiences with Dr Lyndon Mascarenhas

So as I ride the go bus back home I thought I'd share my experiences with Dr Lyndon Mascarenhas in toronto. I chose this physician because of the reviews I've read on this website and because he was conveniently located a few blocks away from the st Clair subway station. (I do not drive so I had to catch a train to union, and take the subway from there).

When I first arrived at the office I was given some papers to fill out. The receptionest was very nice. She asked me if it was us or Canadian immigration and then asked me for my passport and immunization records. I got there an hour early so I had plenty of time to fill out this form. Which was great because I had forgotten to print off my mtl number (I assumed for some reason it was on my interview confirmation page) so I had to go looking on my phone for where I may have written it!! You will need this number for the xray too!

I waited no more than 10 minutes after handing the forms back to the lady at the desk.

Dr Mascarenhas called me into his office and we sat at his desk. It wasn't like a drs office that I'm used to. There was your typical examination bed in the back corner but aside from that there was really just a huge office desk and some chairs.

He looked at me and asked me if I was a healthy person. To which I said yes. He asked if it was safe to assume I had no health complications and I told him yes. He asked me whether I've had any surgeries or whether I'm currently on medication or if I've been admitted to a hospital at all. I told him no to all of the above. And then he asked me if i had a family dr that i went to for regular check ups. And i think that was the biggest deal for him. When i said yes to that he went through his list and checked off that I was good for everything.

He then went through my immunization records. I had the td/tdap, MMR and flu shot records with me. And then he asked me about chicken pox which I had when I was 6 so I told him that I had them as a child. He marked a few more things on his papers.

Then he took me over to the bed and checked my blood pressure. It was normal. A few more marks on the paper and then he handed me an xray sheet and a blood work form. I didn't even see him fill these out he was so quick with them.

He asked me about my job, who I was going to Maine for and we talked about how beautiful it is there. :) and that was that. I left and walked down the hall for my xray and then I walked to the next room over for my blood work. It was veery relaxing very easy and very quick!!

I have scarring on my arms and he never saw them. I brought a note from my Dr about how I have had anxieties in the past but I took appropriate medication and counselling to resolve all issues. He never asked me about mental health and just assumed since I looked stable that I was in fact stable. :P I'll bring this note to the interview anyway. Just to be sure. (Plus I paid $25 for it hah!)

Oh. He also thanked me for coming to him all the way from Hamilton. (Its not that far :) )

All in all it was a very pleasant experience. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone else. :)
