Not impressed by this office at all. Will never come back here again. The regular front desk staff is okay but when they are away they have rude replacements. The waiting time just to get Into my appointment is always extremely longer than it should be. I'm standing outside now cause I've been waiting over an hour now just to get in to see my doctor. Which I am only in there for 10-15 mins max. Feel rushed and don't feel they take they're time with me. They obviously over book people on a daily basis.
I had to see this doctor due to continuous bleeding after a miscarriage. First her reception staff seem to never answer the phone and respond to voicemails!
I had called 4 days prior to my appointment to explain I would not be able to attend the appointment given via my family doctor. I called everyday and left voicemails - nothing. Then I heard from my GPs receptionist that she was refusing to see me unless I paid a no-show fee!!!!
I ended up bleeding heavily and had to go to emergency and was seen by, this doctor. Not taking into consideration I'd been waiting 5 hours, it was late on a Friday night, and I was still suffering the effects of a miscarriage; she rudely asked what the issue was and gave me two options but clearly wanted me to choose one.
I tried to give her some background to the issue but she cut me midway to state she only knew what was written in front of her - hence me explaining more!
Long story short - I left crying and went to Peace Arch and was seen by fantastic staff and a doctor.
Long story short
I only saw dr B when I was a patient at surrey memorial delivering my son. During my labour there ended up being an issue with my sons heart rate and ended up needing to be delivered by emergency c section. This doctor took matters into her own hands and within minutes had my baby delivered in the OR and literally saved his life. I have NEVER seen a human being react and take control of a situation as quick as this doctor. She knew exactly what to do within seconds and made sure my son was delivered safely...if it wasn't for this amazing doctor he wouldn't be here today..I will never forget her
I saw Dr B. for a pap exam and I inquired about getting an IUD. She questioned my decision to switch from oral pill to an IUD. After she agreed to give me a prescription for one, I went to pick it up and booked an appointment over a month later. I get to my appointment, she looks at my cervix and tells me I am not a candidate. Couldn't she have checked that last time and before I spent the $400 on the IUD? She tells me that it's not going to change until I have children, says sorry and leaves the office. Horrible bedside manners. No knocking on the door before she comes in, no hello and just doesn't like to be asked questions. The only comfort I get from this is that her admin is the one who provided me suggestions. Just overall poor experience with this doctor.
I'm a return patient - Dr. B was my OB for my first two children 10/14 years ago and is now my OB again for a third pregnancy. I must admit that I find her much more pleasant today than I did the first go around. I know she had some personal issues when my first children were born - having lost her husband and having young children of her own, becoming a single mom while trying to run a busy clinic. Was to be expected - she was tired, sad, and probably angry at the world. Now she has a much more pleasant, albeit still Eastern European, demeanor. She smiles and has a twinkle in her eye that she didn't have before. I treat her with respect and she gives me respect back. I do find the wait times are long, but I know they are going to be long so I bring work or a book. She doesn't rush and has no problem with me asking questions. There seems to be high turnover among the young office staff which might lead to some of the punctuality and organization issues. But overall, good doctor.
I worked with Dr. B as a med student, and based on being with her in clinic, the OR, and on the ward, I can say that she has excellent medical knowledge and is very thorough with her assessment and plan. She's very evidence-based and up to date with the latest practice guidelines. In terms of bedside manner, she is very direct in her communication and has a very business-like professionalism. So you'll likely have a more pleasant encounter if you are forgiving of the waiting time and conduct yourself like you would in any professional environment. She's certainly not shy to tell patients to leave if they're being difficult or disrespectful to the staff. Regardless, the patient's well-being is always her priority, which really shows with all the behind the scenes work that patients typically don't see.
In addition, the office staff is very organized and efficient in meeting the demand of such a busy practice.
I honestly have never been to a more cold and un-kind doctor. I saw her on three different occasions. The first time I saw her I could hardly believe that she was the doctor I would be dealing with. I can't believe how the medical board is allowing DR B to practise, her decisions are on assumptions not on Medical Knowledge. I would have The Medical council to Audit her practise and take this very seriously as she can be risking allot of patients that have medical conditions... Horrible Doctor
I think most people don't understand that wait times in doctors offices are very variable. Keep in mind that the 6 new mothers in front of you had a million questions for which time is not scheduled in the day. Ob/gyns sometimes see up to 40 patients a day. You would expect that as patient you would have the right to ask questions as you want to resulting in delay for the next patient. Complaints about wait times are not a valid criticism of a doctor's work. Dr. Bleszynki is very thorough, knowledgable, and professional. Her MOA is super nice and very friendly if you are friendly too.
What a disrespectful front desk receptionist. I couldn't believe the attitude! Ok I get it she probably deals with some cranky prego women. I was late for my appointment called before the weekend wrote my time down, and when it came to the day I couldn't find it. Tried calling all morning, answer machine says they are closed for lunch till 130 so makes sense my appointment is 130 not 1... well they girl at the front was so rude when I showed up. I will not go back there!
