I am requesting transfer to another ob/gyn. After waiting three months for my appointment, her office called my doctor and cancelled it just two days before -- because I had not confirmed by phone with them. Why did they not just call me to confirm like every other provider who doesn't have email confirmation? If she instructs her office to behave like that, what else does she do?
I thought doctor Hancock was great! I see many comments on here about her not being nice. I agree she is not the most effervescent person in the biz, but her job is to identify and treat health conditions, not hold our hands, braid hair and be our BFF. If you don't expect this, and are just looking for someone to get the job done right, she's your doc.
please avoid this doctor.i went to her in 2012 only to have to justify to her why i needed to see her. my initial visit with her was not comforting nor helpful. I had a follow up with her a few months later where she brought in a locum doctor and was extra nice. however she wasn't as professional as i had expected because we were meeting about my latest ultrasound results, which she didnt have!!!!!!!!!! i changed doctors and earlier this year was diagnosed with stage 4 endometrosis.....if dr hancock had done her job and listened to me, she could have diagnosed me earlier. she's a waste on tax payer $$. I urge you please please please do not go to her!
Best I can say is that she was on time. I saw her regarding a permanent resolution to extremely bad cramping because I no longer wished to be on hormonal birth control. She was perfectly happy to offer a hysterectomy, until she found out that I have no children. After that I kept getting "You'll change your mind" and "You'll regret it" in regard to sterlization. She told me I was "silly" to request a tubal at the same time she was planning to do a surgical exam because I'd always have to be on hormones to control my pain. Her report to my doctor advised I'd decided against a tubal becuase it's a "drastic decision". Her knowledge is also badly out of date advising a procedcure which could potentially resolve my cramps wasn't available in Canada and she'd never heard of it. An email from VIHA indicates it is available locally.
Performed an emergency C-section after a failed attempt at a home birth with midwives. She had horrible bedside manner and was very disparaging about attempting a home birth. She also told me I would not be able to deliver vaginally in the future (which was incorrect because I have since had a VBAC). She did do a good job on the Caesarean though...my scar is very small and caused me no problems.
This doctor is completely dead inside and should work with machinery rather than people. You will walk away either crying or enraged because of what comes out of her mouth and the complete lack of empathy that she has for her patients. I was told that I should consider myself lucky that I was having a miscarriage as opposed to cancer when I voiced concern about having to wait an additional 2 weeks to have a D&C after going through a misscarriage for 5 weeks already. She is a sad representation of the medical field.
Excellent Doc. Knows her stuff, she isn't too shy to say or ask those questions that need to be asked. I like her personality and her "plan of action" that she gave me-first doc to do that, and give me atimeline to look at in terms of diagnosis.
