Ratings for Dr. Mangesh Inamdar
I met Dr. Inamdar just over two years ago in the Oakville emergency because I was in extremely bad pain because I had a tumour removed from my spine. When I had my surgery I was told I would never walk again but I am able to now but it cause me to have more pain because my nerves are affected by the surgery. I now have no use of my right arm and my right leg is extremely weak. It took a very long time to get in with doctors and treatments but after meeting Dr. Inamdar he told me he wanted to see me weekly at his pain care clinic in Oakville and got me in right away. First time I went into the pain care clinic I was taking 20 to 30 milligrams of hydromorphine a day and it was hard for me at 25 to function but we had a plan that every week we would do nerve pain injections and focus on getting me off some of my medications. In the two years of seeing Dr. Inamdar I’ve gone from not being able to work, work out and all the medications I was on to working, training for the Paralympics for wheelchair tennis and now I’m no longer taking hydromorphine. To the staff and Dr. Inamdar I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart if it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t be where I am today! Thank you guys
Dr. Inamdar is fabulous. He replaced my previous pain clinic specialist several years ago, took over the retiring doctors patients. He's been very effective in treating my early onset chronic arthritis pain, especially as the arthritis damage increases with wear, joint replacements and whiplash. He's very engaged in overall treatment, looks for ways to improve services and treatment plan. Out of all the therapy I go through every week for pain and mobility retention (4 other therapies per week), the pain clinic is the only treatment covered by ohip; the rest I have to pay out of pocket without benefits, if I want to be able to walk and move my neck (maintenance physical independence). Since adding freezing shots (almost 2 years ago)at the pain clinic my quality of life has drastically improved. Without those weekly shots I'd be fully disabled. So grateful for the treatments and Dr. Inamdar.
pcc has been my salvation, dr. inamdar my hero. i was in an accident 38 years ago, living in pain ever since. i raised 3 boys alone, 2 of them severely disabled, always having to be lifted for 18 years. spent ten years seeing a chiropractor with minimal results.finally at work one day my back, leg and hip just went haywire.i lost my job, couldn't walk or do any kind of housework.then the family doc introduced me to percocet and oxycontin. miracle i thought. so wrong.before i knew what was happening i turned into an argumentative,depressed and miserable drug addict. relying on pain pills and alcohol to get through the day.finally, down i went. nearly died. i sit here now recovering from cirrhosis. i asked my doc to wean me off the pills and she sent me to pain care clinic.i was scared but dr. inamdar was so wonderful that i knew i could put my trust in him. very soon afterwards i was off meds and pain free from the nerve block shots.i am now drug, alcohol and pain free. i am working again from home and healing well.i walk around town every day and even do heavy yardwork. i now have a second chance, i finally have my life back and it worth living now. i owe it all to pcc and especially doctor inamdar. the thought of ever losing that terrifies me, they are an amazing and caring staff and make you feel like family. they have truly saved my life and i am forever grateful. sincerely, carolyn hepburn
I have had many rough years , actually decades . Constant tests , and constantly hitting a brick wall with all my docs and specialist. I often felt hopeless. Trapped with how I am in intense pain , doctors quickly gave me a excuse on how they can't so anything eles for me. And cant find the problem. Therefore the treatments they gave me often didn't work. Handfuls of pills for illness and different labels. Life is so hard living everyday in constant pain. Constantly struggling raising 5 children , even do the simplest mom tasks was so hard for me. Of course, with pain comes sleepless nights, anxiety, stress , depression and often hopelessness . When I was referred to Dr.Inamdar I was so broken drained and sick and tired of being sick and tired, and was willing to do anything to be pain free. Its So hard to fully live life , to enjoy family friends when the pain has robbed you of quality of life. Dr. Inamdar listened and actually understood . He took his time explaining the different treatment options and started down the list to see which treatment I would most benefit from. He gave me my hope back. He has given me my life back. He has had faith when mine no longer existed. My treatment has helped me tremendously. I can honestly truly say that I really don't know where I would be today without his knowledge and expertise . I have Been to more Doctors then I can count , and none of them come close to having such a short wait time. Most days you get called right at your appointment time. And on the days that the pain is to much to bear and you need reception to fit you in his day, they do their best to make sure your able to see the doctor. Dr. Inamdar has a amazing nurse named Jamie, she is so caring and. kind hearted , she is a perfect part of his team and this clinic. Sometimes in some doctors office the nurses treat you like your just another file in their day. I have never felt so welcomed and cared for as I have in Dr.Inamdar's clinic. I want to thank him and his staff for giving me my life back even when i had lost hope. My kids got their mother back what this doctor has given me is priceless. I hope that he and his team realize for some its life or death and with their compassion understanding they have probably saved countless lives in many ways. Again words just can't express my gratitude to Dr. Inamdar and his team.
I saw him on Hometown Hockey and I can't believe he was the same doctor who treated me a few months ago in the ER. Excellent bedside manner. I came in with atrial fibrillation and he cardioverted me with a defibrillator. He was so calm and explained everything to me. He made me feel very comfortable and I felt taken care of. Thank you.
I had struggled a great deal between being heard and a variety of treatments before my referral to dr inamdar. Together we found a treatment plan that has improved my quality of life. Im back to work, I am doing better than I forsaw possible from where I was; my life was consumed by the pain I was in. Now I have a treatment plan that works for me and I continue to have the support of my dr and have stability where I am more than pain. I have a life again. I have a support team working with me for me and I couldn't be more grateful.
Great doctor. I have 3 sons and a husband who are quite active in sports. I have made more trips to the hospital than I care to count. He has put in a number of stitches and have reset 2 bones. He has also treated me twice for medical problems. Can't say enough about him. Thorough, knowledgeable and great bedside manner. The orthopedic surgeon once commented on how he did a perfect reduction on a complicated fracture.
This Dr. Is the Magic man! Without him I wouldn't be doing all the things I am able to do! He is compassionate and caring. He puts you at ease right away. Very knowledgeable and explains things so I can understand them. He has been a God send to me. Great Doctor.
IF IT WAS NOT FOR THIS DR I WOULD HAVE KILLED MYSELF AFTER THE FIRST APPT. I HAD BEEN IN SO MUCH PAIN AND ON SO MANY MEDS, I WAS GOING TO KILL MYSELF ON THE WAY HOME THAT DAY, I COULD NO LONGER HANDLE THE DAILY PAIN, I COULD NOT DO ANYTHING WITH OUT IT HURTING ALL THE TIME. MY FAMILY DR BEFORE HIM SAID IT WAS ALL IN MY HEAD AND NEED A SHRINK, THEN GAVE ME A SCRIPT FOR MORVIN. THE MEDS DID NOT WORK, I WENT TO DR INAMDAR AND HE SAVED MY LIFE, I AM IN 1/4 OF THE PAIN I HAD, SOMEDAYS I FORGET THE PAIN. HE HAS THE BEST BED SIDE MANNER, HE WILL DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO HELP, HE IS THE MOST TRUSTING DR I HAVE EVER SEEN. HE CARES ABOUT EVERYONE, DRS SHOULD TAKE CLASS LESSONS FORM HIM. I TRUST HIM WITH MY LIFE.
