Dr Albekaa performed an operation on my son three years ago. He never gave us any other obtion but to go with the operation. When we exlained to him that we canot afford his very high charge and asked to refer us to the public system he started talking about the risk if done in public hosbital and that inexperienace doctors or students may perorm it and that pose the risk of not done right plus the very long expected waiting period.
We insisted on the referal and ended up doing it in public hospital after nine month waiting period.
To our surprise he was the doctor who don the operation and to our disappointment, on the day of operation he never buthered to say a word to assure us as parents or explain the nature of the operation.When we asked to talk to him just before he goes in we felt he was very arrogant and showed no sympathy to ourread more
When waiting for my referral I had a comment made to me that he is a very pro-surgery ENT.
At my appointment I was persuaded to have unecessary surgery and am regretful for this. When I tried to discuss other options with me he did not help. I found he just wants to perform surgery, and felt forced into this by receptionist also. I felt the advice was not thorough however was stressed and went ahead with the surgery.
Also appointments were rushed leaving there many things not explained properly and surgery was extremely traumatic.
I definitely wish I had sought a second opinion
