Dr. Richard Irvine's Ratings
This doctor is currently off for 4 months and has referred his patients to walk-in clinics, which means I have to take my son for his immunizations to a walk-in? I have 3 children under 4 and both my husband and I work in healthcare, but this does not seem to matter. Dr. Irvine's normally abrupt staff did not seem to care or have the time to discuss this with me. Very poor practice. I thought I was registered with a family health team?!Dr. Irvine still seems to not know who we are after rostering with him for 5 years! I would much prefer Dr. Schnore or Erling but unfortunately the admin staff are the same for all of the doctors, which means I would still have to deal with them. Too bad that the waiting list I am on for a different doctor is 2 years, but when we get the chance to leave we will!
I love Dr. Irvine. He always had time to ask questions and dig deeper into what I am telling him. He writes down medical names of things for me to look up and recommends reading materials. He is prepared to talk and answer my questions. He is great.
I find him to be a very poor doctor. Any time I see him, if I don't know what is wrong with me he gets flustered and at a loss. I avoid seeing him if possible and would mauch rather be attended to by any of the other doctors in the clinic, especially Dr. Erling.
My mother in-law sees this doctor and she ended up going to a specialist because she was not happy with him. The specialist ended up telling her that Dr. Irvine put her on meds that could have given her a heartattack at her age. :(
A1 DR!After all,they can only do so much for us.He has taken so much care,time,concern & medical time/knowledge to help me in worst of times.He monitors the med's he puts you on with respect to taking you off as well.I admire him,as I've been around many DR's & he is beyond wonderful.I care for his well being, like he cares for me...cause I know he does...he is that type of DR.Don't you go anywhere Dr. Irvine!!!
