26/03/14 1 1 1 1 from my run ins with this doctor i find her to be the worst out there. She will take phone calls when i am in her office and then tells my kids to quiet down. I went to see her a few years ago for a illness and it took me going back 4-5 times and she still didnt no what it was it took a nurse to figuar out what was wrong and give me a RX to help with the problem. im sorry but this lady should have retired years ago -_- i have alos heard alot of bad things about her with the methadon clinic i really do hope somebody looks into her pratice soon

11/03/14 4 2 2 1 I find it rude that she takes personal phone calls during my appointments. Has said she was referring me to a specialist but after 3 months of waiting I found out I was never refered. Also forgot to send my past history to specialists twice. I often find her demeaning in tone and doesn't seem to take my concerns seriously.  Respond

19/12/10 5 5 5 5 After reading the last comment I felt I needed to comment also. I have known Dr. Stackhouse (personally not professionally) for about 7 years. Surprisingly for someone who hates kids she was really good to mine allowing my oldest and middle daughters to ride and show her horses and my youngest daughter she welcomed into her home a LOT and was really good to her. I attended horse shows with Diane and spent many many hours in her barn and at the showgrounds with her. AND she did ride her horses, a couple years ago we rode parades together. She has a lot of horses but I've never seen any abused nor neglected. She is always working in her barn when she is not at her clinic. Diane is a very private person, she is introverted and shy and I feel this is why sometimes people feel she is unapproachable and uncaring. I've never found her to be this way though. She cares a LOT about her horses, so much so that most of her income goes to take care of them.  Respond

21/08/10 1 1 1 1 I never had her as a dr. but did know her personally. What I know she hates kids and elderly and men. If you are not anywhere near that age groop your good too go. Someone commented on how she should of been a vet. No not good for the horses she is a collector. She does not pay attention to her horses. They don't even know know her there ears go back when she enters the barn. I think the last time she's been on any of her horse maybe going back 10 to 15 years. And alot of her horse don't get properly look after unless she hires anyone to work for her to do so. If not she wont go and feed them maybe in PM if she's around. If the horses are sick well if they are not a show horse they wont see the vet. Don't even mention western to her, she hates anything to do with "western" horses. So in a way she treats her people patients better then some of her horses. She should not be a dr. or have any horses.  Respond

04/07/10 1 1 1 1 Absolutely the worse doctor on the face of the planet. I am not going to rest until she loses her practice.. That's right Stackhouse, I'm gonna come after you from so many angles your heads gonna spin. She has zero respect for doctor/patient confidentiality. She doesn't listen to her patients, I know poeple who have gotten very ill as a result of her neglect. If your one of her methadone patients she'll try her hardest to get you on such a high dose that you will never be able to get off. It's no secret that methadone is very big business for doctors and pharmacies alike, and she thrives off of this. expect no support from Stackhouse if you plan on defeating your addictions, including methadone. Methadone tapering should begin as soon as you start treatment unless your either terminally ill, have a chronic disease, chronic physical impairment or long term IV opiate/opioid abuse (5 year or longer), otherwise anyone you break free from it. Dr. Stackhouse, it's timn to pay the piper.  Respond

17/04/10 3 1 1 2 A lot of doctors give out drug samples so you can try something at no cost to see if it works for you or if side-effects from a particular drug are intolerable. Not many samples available here but lots of drugs for sale. Rather than reach a diagnosis, I was given half a dozen prescriptions for different possible causes. If you throw enough mud against a wall something is bound to stick, if you take 6 different kinds of pills something is going to make you feel better, right? Wrong. Not only didn't get better but had stomach and digestive problems for months and months after I stopped taking all the pills. A thoughtful and intelligent friend figured out what was causing my symptoms. I'd have had better luck with Diane if I were a horse, of course. She would have made a WONDERFUL vet.  Respond

08/10/09 1 1 1 1 Wow, this is one of the worst doctors I have ever met. She would be great if it were the 18th century where the doctor was the be all end all and was never questioned. I found her to be rude, condesending and outdated. I think Dr Stackhouse should retire.  Respond

21/05/09 3 1 2 2 A member of my family has been suffering with an illness (unknown) for more than three months and she keeps requesting follow up visits - we need a specialist, especially since Stackhouse cannot diagnose the illness. It is also continues to upset us when she answers her phone to discuss horse and barn issues - very unprofessional.  Respond

03/08/07 2 1 2 2 Stackhouse has been in the area too long. She is a GP and VERY "general". She doesn't keep up on current med practices. She has misdiagnosed many of my family members, whether children or adults. She is also too quick to dispense meds -- I'd like to know how many clients are on BP or stomache pills. Lastly, what happened to OUR community doctor with normal office hours!?!?!?! She now caters to the meth patients and reduced her hours for the general community.

29/05/07 1 1 1 I have never been so badly treated by this doctor. You ask to see another doctor or tests done and she tells you it costs the goverment to much money to send me.Dr.Stackhouse always says I can treat you she is not helpful at all. But never go to out patients she'll take a fit. Her knowledge is terrible and she likes to be in control.She should be investagated.  Respond

03/05/07 2 2 2 very controlling, total horse docter, favors patients, prescribes exactly what patients wants without diagnosing, plays god in the methadone program, addicts can be manipulaters but she does nothing to encourage them to get off the program, begin to get a productive life in treatment. $$$ in her pocket. Will give take homes to those not trying and failing drug tests, not give to those trying hard. Prescribes too high a dose then does not allow them to try to wean themselves down. They either take the she gives or nothing. Throwing the addict into a panic attack if they are cut off completely they have no choice but to take the high dose. She should be investigated and have to consult with other docters. Her many long hours of addicts waiting for her, keep them all together in an enviroment they are trying to get out of.

17/04/07 1 1 2 Dr. Stackhouse was my doc. while on a Methadone Program (twice she has been my prescribing doc. for this program). I find her to be very controlling and uncareing. She seems to care more about her horses than her patients! It's a shame; I've seen her basically drive patients out of this program. She makes sure that her patients know that she is the one in control, not them. This is a Methadone Program for people struggling with addictions, they are all there looking for and wanting help. I think it's her job and obligation to provide that help. People's lives depend on this program and she's not the kind of person that should have control of whether they live or die.  Respond

04/04/07 1 2 1 She is willing to do it all in her little office- blood work, remove hemoeroids, extract teeth, fill presciptions, one stop shopping....and this is NOT a good thing. Her misdiognoses has cost lives-beware.  Respond

01/04/07 1 2 2 she lies and lets you believe she is doing all she can to get you in to see a specialist then later I find out the dr. she is saying hasn't gotten back to her has been retired for years  Respond

27/02/07 3 5 5 This doctor is very proactive with blood and PSA tests. This enabled her to diagnose my prostate cancer very early, before I showed any symptoms whatsoever. She very likely saved my life. I have been seeing her for 28 years, and i can usually get an appointment in a reasonable time, even though her office is very busy.

24/02/07 2 3 2 The waiting time is very long. She is quick to write a prescription and not very quick to send for a referral. The dispensary practices are not professional at all, such as hand written labels on medication vials. She will allow you to come to her house after hours when there is an emergency but if there is something really wrong with myself or my family, I would prefer to be seen in the ER at a larger hospital.  Respond
