19/06/14 1 1 1 1 I was once a patient of Dr. Parker, but I wasn't for very long. She prescribed the wrong medications and I too also found her to be dazed half the time. And like someone else mentioned on here she did not have a secretary. That to me is just plain weird. Glad I switched when I did and have never gone back to her since.  Respond

21/10/13 1 1 1 1 Please do not use this doctor. She lost my Mothers test results that proved she had cancer. She ended up finding them by accident two months later. She lost test results so many times. She has no working washroom, she has no secretary or assistant. She told my Mother she had a chest cold when in fact she had ovarian cancer that spread to her lungs. Please stay away from her.  Respond

30/05/12 3 3 2 4 I find Dr. Parker very knowledgeable when she is focused on what she is talking about, but most of the time she is very scattered and absent minded. She was supposed to let me know when my first ultrasound was to make sure my pregnancy was not ectopic. I got a call an hour before my appointment to let me know when it was...so I spent 3 hours trying to drink enough water to get a good image of the baby and doing other things because I was not advised of the appointment beforehand. Also, after she referred me to and OB she forgot to send any of my personal information to the OB! My mother has been seeing her for 20 years and runs into problem after problem with her. When she was pregnant Dr. Parker referred her to another family Dr. instead of an OB. So all in all, I'd say she gets the job done if you don't mind going over things again and again.  Respond

04/11/11 3 5 1 1 Dr. Parker is extremely absent minded. She never remmebers things and I had to get a test done twice because she did not do it right the first time and. She also changes her mind constantly as to what to prescribe and for how long, going back and forth, as if it was my decision and she was expecting direction from me on what to do - I am not a dotor and it does not make me feel confident to go to her for a problem.  Respond

19/03/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Parker has been our family doctor since 1993 and I would trust my children to no other. My daughters have both had numerous medical issues and Dr. Parker has always been there for us 100%. She takes her time with you, explains things to you and does not use terms that you don't understand. The city of Guelph should relish in the fact that they have a great family doctor as they do in Dr. Alice Parker. My daughters and I are blessed to have her in our lives.  Respond

16/03/11 3 5 5 5 One of the best doctors I've ever had. Dr. Parker is very keen to get to the bottom of any health ailment and is well-organized with her use of electronic health records. As well, Dr. Parker is never rushed when she sees a patient. I highly recommend her superb service.  Respond

08/10/10 2 3 1 1 I went to her out of necessity as my family doctor retired last year. I would have been better off without any doctor! She always appears dazed and scattered headed. She refused to return any of my pages. Something wrong there!! After many attempts to get in touch with her with no luck, I ended up in the E.R and having emergency surgery that evening. I would strongly advise people not to go to her.  Respond

08/09/09 2 2 1 1 I went to Dr. Parker a while back. This woman prescribes the wrong medications. I was advised from a friend of mine to switch to another doctor. I am glad I listened. How this woman is allowed to have her own practice is beyond me. Also not having a secretary in her office is just weird.  Respond

15/01/09 5 5 5 4 I have been with Dr. Parker for 15 years and find her to be very open to any questions and concerns I have. She will make recommendations for treatment or meds but if I have an alternative idea she is always open to it. She takes the time to hear your concerns and does not rush you through the appointment. Her mannerisms are a little awkward, but you get used to her. She is a far cry better than my previous doctor that would rush me through appointments and always insist on medicating me instead of considering alternative treatments. I can always get an appointment when I need one -none of this waiting a week to see your Dr. if you have the flu. In our present day medical system, Dr. Parker's approach and the way she runs her office is a refreshing change.  Respond

06/10/08 4 5 5 4 Her phone appointment system is excellent. She is very willing to refer to others doctors when she needs to. She is very caring. I have had her for 15 yrs as a doctor and am very satisified. Recently I had cancer. Because of her testing requests (ultrasound) the tumour was caught at the very earliest stage. I am alive today because of her and the health care team in Guelph. She was there for me during the tough times. What more can you ask of a GP.  Respond

06/07/08 5 4 5 5 Our family has been with Dr. Parker since 1988. She has always been very dedicated and I value the fact that she is unique in the way that she runs her practice. I am able to make an appointment at any time of the day (answering service). When my husband came out of surgery with a terminal diagnosis, it was her and not the surgeon that stayed and talked with our family about what the findings were. If she does not know an anwser; she will refer. We value her very much.  Respond

29/02/08 1 4 2 2 I switched to another doctor because when I was pregnant I had some concerns regarding medications I had taken for another condition before I even realized I was pregnant and before we even knew if the medications would harm my baby she picked up the phone for me to see someone about having an abortion. I was shocked and said no I wanted to see if my now daughter was ok. Which by the way she is great! Also she never wanted to close the blinds during a pap test I had to always request it which I thought was unusual????  Respond

25/09/07 1 1 1 1 This doctor should not be in practice. She can NOT get anything right. What kind of doctor does not have a secretary. Leave a message on a machine and never to hear back from her. I would never tell anyone to see her, if you do I would change.  Respond
