Dr. Beth Hepburn's Ratings
Who cares if she is not on time. You know how hard it is to get a knowledgeable doctor in this town?? She may take longer with you, but it's no "2 aspirins and call me in the morning" with her. She was kind, took the time to ask me all sorts of questions, and finally diagnosed a rare illness which is often misdiagnosed, and I am very thankful.
Dr. Hepburn is a kindly and laid back doctor. She is a great fit for people who are not in a rush and don't have pressing medical concerns. However, if you are busy, have young children you need to bring in with you, and/or need to come in regularly for persistent concerns, she may not be the best gp for you. She greets patients warmly, spends a great deal of time on each person and inquires to your personal life as well as medical, and takes a more naturopathic approach to her medicine. All positive things but the amount of time she takes on each patient results in very long wait times as well as long appointments and her laid back approach means she does not always take a concern as seriously as you feel it is. I required advocacy through CDC in order to get diagnosis, treatment, and pediatrician referral for my daughter as she didn't feel her problems were as severe as I indicated. My daughter is now booked with Queen Alexandria with ongoing and serious medical and behavioral problems.
Dr Hepburn is a very kind and caring doctor. The only issue is that wait times are quite long, though I think the reason is that she tries very hard to hear all of her patients concerns and is not quick to push you out the door. I have her as my current family doctor and will not be switching any time soon :)
Dr. Beth Hepburn has what it takes to make a good doctor GREAT!!. She has the best bedside manner, the knowledge & expertise and is a great listener. It is true the majority of time for my appointments are not on time BUT that doesn't matter as it's worth it to see her and have her focus on you as a person which makes you feel special! She is the female version of Patch Adams:)....she really cares about YOU!. I would NEVER change doctors and Beth...don't ever think of returning to SCOTLAND! :):):).......cheers Maureen Z.
Dr. Hepburn is one of the most caring Doctor's I have been to in a very long time. She has been invaluable to me recently as I've been through a very tough medical time. I could not have gotten through most of this without her and would recommend her anytime to anyone.
I love Beth! Yes, the appointments are often behind, but that is because she listens to the patient and gets the overall life and attitude of her patient assessed. I feel I can get an appointment with her to discuss medical options and opinions. She is very open and approachable. I know that she takes her time to discuss with me all options available and she understands my perspective (esp since I am not a person who believes in excessive medical intervention). She is wonderful! Glad I got in with her when she first arrived in Canada!
main reason I left is NEVER on time. An hour to wait is ridiculous and that is just normal for this doc. Also find that when there is a problem the first instinct is to look to lifestyle instead of medical cause. A doctor more for mothers and babies. Very good in this area. Very kind and concerned but not very helpful in my case.
