28/04/14 1 1 1 3 Probably the worst Dr I've ever seen. Never once has she checked my vitals (even when my complaint has been heart related). Never puts her computer down. Doesn't let you answer her questions. The lady who works the desk is a joke. Never met someone so ignorant and rude. Overall the Dr is a BUST! If all you need is a pill pusher...this is the doctor for you. Otherwise go somewhere else.  Respond

18/12/13 1 1 1 1 Dr. Wanes has poor communication skills, bedside manners and is just plain rude. Doesn't let me finish replying to her questions, stands in the doorway while interviewing me with her computer in hand. No confidentiality, the door is wide open throughout the exam. Just ignored my previous medical history, which I had written down. She is rushing me at every appointment. Prescribes meds but never follow up. Never checks my file to see if/when I should have my meds renewed, doesn't check my BP which is an issue for which I'm seeing her. Her staff is rude, closing the glass window while I'm still standing at the counter. Just a very poor experience altogether. I am NOT going back to her office ever again!

18/12/13 3 5 4 3 I just had my initial meeting with Dr. Wanes as I relocated to Kemptville and wanted a local GP. I must agree with the other responders, her interpersonal skills need work. Others complained she was rude or rushed, I would characterize it as "abrupt". A number of times I was cut off mid-sentence as she wanted to move on with her next question. In fact, she hardly introduced herself and didn't ask me for my introduction. She did seem attentive to detail that I gave her about my conditions. I will continue with her but for now give her a neutral rating.

15/11/13 3 3 2 3 Dr. Wanes has a poor beside manner, almost rude. Watches the clock, anxious to move on to next patient. Not a holistic approach, just one or two issues allowed at each appointment. Do not feel like she cares about the person, just the health issue. Not very friendly. Plan to find a new doctor with better interpersonal skills.  Respond

06/11/13 1 5 1 1 Terrible doctor and staff! Very unprofessional. Overheard both doctor and her reception staff discussing a pt. everyone in the waiting room could hear what was being said. Always rushed. Stands in the doorway of her exam rooms to interview patients. No confidentiality at all for patients. The whole family is returning to our gp in ottawa with our tails between our legs. We moved to this practice for convenience as we live in kemptville. Will remember this awful experience every time we are driving to ottawa to see our original doctor.  Respond

17/10/13 3 5 1 1 I rated this doctor poorly after only one visit. She was rushed, rude, didn't introduce herself, would ask me questions, and then not let me finish answering. She asked me no personal questions regarding family history or previous medications, and just scheduled blood tests (when I had nothing wrong). She acted as if I was bothering her when I only came in to meet her because I was told to by the front desk. She treated me poorly when I didn't know the answers to certain questions (what did your last blood work reveal?). She left both exam room doors open so that while I waited I could hear every word she was saying with the young girl next door. She stood at the door to my exam room on her computer and there was no personal involvement at all. I only switched from my other doctor because I moved, but at this point I will make the drive to switch back. She was awful.

11/09/13 2 4 2 3 Had my first visit with Dr. Wanes and felt very rushed. I barely had any time to think of any family history conditions. Thought there would be a questionaire to fill out. I felt she didn't take the time to get to know me just rushed through very basic questions. The reception area is nicely done with hardwood floors while the patient area looks dirty with old carpet flooring and old chairs. The staff didn't even welcome me to their office as a new patient. Overall I say a pretty bad first impression, but I'll give her a chance before I start looking elsewhere. So far the only thing I like is not having to pay for parking.  Respond

29/08/12 1 4 2 2 Her front desk is absolutely rude, seems they have no time to talk to you. The doctor is not too bad, but a little rushy and you feel she always wants to push you away as soon as possible.  Respond

26/07/12 4 2 2 3 She is very rushed. You have 15 minutes scheduled but she pushes you out in 5 minutes. Does not do a complete exam and does not take a holistic approach. She focus on the symptoms and prescribes tests and meds...and more meds. Looking for a doctor who is a partner in my health and wellbeing.  Respond

29/09/11 5 5 5 5 She is a no non-sense doctor. I was a new patient coming in from another doctor and unlike other doctors, I didn't have to go through all the medical tests again in order to follow the course of treatment that I'd been following for the last 15 years. Arrived early at the office, got in early, got the medications I needed with no non-sense. Why rebuild the wheel if it works is her way of doing business. Loved it. The only thing I minded that there was absolutely no small talk to know who I was as a person.  Respond
