26/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Fast is an excellent Family Physician. She listens well and understands that I take responsibility for my health, with her advice and support. Her receptionists are friendly and helpful and I feel very fortunate to be a patient in this practice.  Respond

26/11/11 3 3 3 3 Dr Fast is very good at maternity care but otherwise average. I find her easy to talk to and take no issue with her bedside manner She is busy and therefore understandably to the point. She is not uncaring. However the lack of follow-up is apalling. Either the office needs to be structured differently or perhaps this zero follow-up, even in emergencies and accute situations, is a policy that reflects the serious flaws in our medical system in bc now.  Respond

23/09/11 5 5 5 5 Both Dr. Fast and Leggett are great Physicians. Most people talk about Dr.Fast's begside mannor. If your looking for sensitivity go to a counsellor. She tells you how it is. I am now 25 and planning my first pregnancy and couldn't be more happy that I have these two amazing doctors!  Respond

04/05/11 3 5 5 5 Drs. Fast and Legatt have always treated my health issues in a proactive and preventative style. Dr. Fast is clear about my own accountability, but also refers me quickly to a specialist whenever it is needed. She is thorough on my annual check-ups. I am very happy to be a patient of both of these fine doctors.  Respond

04/04/11 5 5 5 5 I have been with Doctor Fast for over ten years and have been so happy with her care and knowledge. I feel very confident in my doctor and would just like to say that I think that this site encourages people who are negative to go on to complain about anything. I am certain that the majority of Dr. Fast's patients feel that they are lucky to have her - and you can't please everyone! If you're not happy, do us all a favor and leave so that she has space for our friends who feel jealous that we get to go to her!  Respond

27/10/10 4 1 1 1 For privacy reasons I won't go into medical details, but I have been made very concerned with her judgement, like a growing list of you have, for the third time in one year. Actively seeking a new doctor.  Respond

22/06/10 4 3 1 3 I started seeing Dr. Fast when I was pregnant. I started bleeding when I was 14 weeks along and phoned her in a panic. She said "Oh - Sounds like you're having a miscarriage" and told me to go to the hospital. That was it. No follow-up or anything. Unfortunately I did miscarry and was hospitalized for several days. I had to iniate contact with the office once I was home to follow-up and let them know. Dr. Fast never checked in once to see how I was. When I did contact her, Dr. Fast was unbelieveably cold and clinical. To add insult to injury, the office forgot to let the ultrasound clinic know about the miscarriage and the clinic ended up phoning me to remind me of the appointment I no longer needed. They felt horrible and awkward. Understandably miscarrying was one of the worst experiences of my life, but I was gobsmacked by how poorly I was treated by Dr. Fast. For my next pregnancy I went to a midwife. I would never use Dr. Fast again.  Respond

11/03/10 5 5 5 5 Dr.Fast has been my physician for 10 years and has always provided an excellent service. She is professional, kind and experienced. She does not sugar coat anything and gives real honest answers. She has helped bring my three children into this world and not once did she miss a beat. I would highly recommend her to anyone. The staff are fabulous also.  Respond

03/12/09 2 1 2 3 My initial visit with Dr. Fast made me feel judged and not very comfortable. The office staff was very short with me when I called to cancel my next appointment (a week in advance) because I had chosen to go with a midwife as my primary caregiver. I got a call from her office 2 days later to say that my ultrasound had been cancelled (my midwife was certain I could keep the appointment and just let them know the change in caregiver as that is how other offices do things). I was very upset as I was excited to have the ultrasound to be able to have an accurate due date and to see the baby's heart beat. They were again very short with me and not very caring.  Respond

09/11/09 5 5 4 5 Dr. Fast and her practice partner, Dr. Leggatt are effective, caring doctors. I never wait more than 5 minutes for my appointment. When my infant son has to be seen quickly, the staff figures out a way to get me in. Dr. Fast listens quite well, and although sometimes she appears rushed, I feel like she considers my needs and respects my own preferences about treatments both for myself and my son.  Respond

29/09/09 4 5 5 5 Excellent maternity doctor. Very thorough and made me feel very comfortable. Always very prompt and punctual, never had to wait in office for long at all.  Respond

24/05/09 3 3 1 3 I don't think there was a time when I did not leave Dr. Fast's office in tears. She was always asking me why I did not have kids, and why I was not married to my boyfriend (now my husband). She also told me (at age 27) that I was getting too old to have kids and I better make a decision. I suppose it was her lack of a bedside manner that I found annoying. I was also about 10 pounds overweight and she was sure to bring it up every time. On a good note, I found the office staff to be very nice. I now have a new doctor.  Respond

16/10/08 4 3 3 3 I have been with Dr. Fast for quite awhile now, and when I first had her she was very caring and took the time to listen. I find everytime I go to see her now, she is rushed and barely listens, I wish I could have the old Dr. Fast back!  Respond

19/08/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Fast and her partner Dr. Leggatt were my maternity doctors, they are a wonderful team and part of a fantastic call group. They monitored my pregnancy very carefully and always erred on the side of caution, without ever making me needlessly worry. They are thorough and fast at the same time, always on time for appointments, ready and willing to answer my questions and explain anything I didn't understand. I loved them both and can't wait to get pregnant again so I can go back to them. The only downside is that they are not accepting new patients for general practice! I wish I could see them all the time, not just when I'm pregnant. If you are looking for excellent maternity doctors who are part of an excellent call group, Dr. Fast and Dr. Leggatt are a great choice!  Respond

03/01/08 3 3 2 3 I had her diagnose me with scabies and really it was an excema breakout all over my body due to the fact I was getting married. I guess if she wasn't so fast with her patients she would have taken the time to find out about my life at that time!  Respond
