Dr. Hugh Fletcher's Ratings
He has been a good doctor to both my husband and myself since we moved here about 5 years ago - Positive comments would be that he will make referrals quickly and has been spot on with diagnosis for various minor things. Negative comments would be that unless you ask questions he doesn't really elaborate on any diagnosis which can be annoying & frustrating. Also feel that sometimes his manner is hurried and his consult/exam room computer gets more attention than the patient. Lots of patients coming/going. I read that in BC he was highest billing doctor to medical plan for 2013 or 2014....that tells you something!
I too have nothing good to say about Dr. Fletcher! It's not fair that when you try to stand up for the care that your not really getting, he hastily grabs all his marbles off his desk, as he practically runs for the door, while he's kicking you out of his office, and then to the curb! He throws all his methadone patients in to the same big basket, treating his pain patients like their addicts, (not that he should be treating them like that either) which I can't even imagine how he treats his addict patients? HE'S MISSING THE EVER IMPORTANT COMPASSION AND EMPTHY GENE! Then on top of kicking you out, he burns all the bridges that are leading to other methadone Dr's, telling them who know's what? just to add even more insult to your misery! He never really listens while he types the whole time your in his office, pushing those patients through as quick as he can, with NO EYE CONTACT, it's all about the prescriptions, it's certainly not about the care not when he's being held down by "college constraints" and is not allowed out of "the RX box" so your only allowed" a little pain control" no matter what changes." Oh and finally, he doesn't seem to know, much less care what suicidal means!!!!
This doctor is a detriment to the medical profession, he needs to retire, and get bit in the a$$ by all the bad karma coming his way. On my last appointment with this horrible man, I asked him why he didn't take my complaints of abdominal pains seriously (which ended up being my appendix ready to rupture, and I had emergency surgery). He then told me I never had anything wrong with my appendix, and that it was all in my head. He stuck to this story even when talking to the surgeon that removed it. The surgeon was horrified at his lack of professionalism, as he chose to respond to her by yelling and telling her that I am crazy, and unable to perceive reality, as well as that my appendix was "fine". This doctor wants only healthy patients. I am reporting him to the College of Physicians and Surgeons and I recommend everyone do the same. This man has NO RIGHT practicing medicine period.
He is a dangerous ego maniac.
Dr. Fletcher has been our family doctor for 26 years since we moved here when I was a child. He has always taken extremely good care of me and my family. As I grew older, I switched to a woman doctor but he will always see me for second opinions. He helped my father when he was very sick and essentially saved his life. He saw my new born when another dr dismissed me as a worried first time mom. He sent us straight to the odes at the hospital where my son was diagnosed with a serious illness. He took on my husband as a patient when we moved back to the community. He is always caring and always makes time for us. I can't say enough great things about him.
Dr. Fletcher unfortunately did not meet our families expectations. It seems he is in the mass production business of medicine and in a nutshell unless you want more than 5 minutes of his time don't see him.
