02/06/14 3 1 1 2 She was late for appointments.... I was a new patient, and she only allowed 10 mins. per appointment... not helpful at all. She told me on the first visit that she only specialized in the area that I needed assistance, and then at the second appointment she told me she did not specialize in that area at all??? Very confusing!! I certainly would not have gone back for the second app't if I had realized that she was not interested in helping me. Would not recommend at all.

22/07/13 4 5 5 5 She is the best Doctor that I have had and I will continue travelling from out of town to see her twice/year. I have never seen a Doctor so interested in her patients, as to correct mistakes of a GP and watch over you through consultation with your other specialists. Most note worthy, she is very pleasant and a pragmatist as well! She is a winner, don't miss out.

13/06/13 5 5 5 5 Due to my mothers illness i have dealt with many doctors and specialists. However, she by far exceeds any doctor I have ever met. She is very compassionate, knowledgeable and caring. She really takes her time and helps the patient understand the issue and tries to find a reasonable solution. I am surprised there are not alot of doctors like her.

17/12/12 3 4 4 5 Dr Day is booked for months in advance but rather than make me wait that long for follow up appointments, she has, multiple times, scheduled me into her lunch hour. She is personable and helpful. We tried several medications until we found the right combination, with manageable side-effects. She remembers personal details and does not make you feel like you are just another body passing through. She helped me get on disability benefits and get the government to pay for my treatment. She tells you what is going on with your body, but encourages you to learn how to live and function with your illness. The front desk staff is another story. They are rude on the phone, they lose messages, they are abrupt and impolite. The waiting area is usually very busy and loud, and even though there are at least 3 secretaries up front, there is line ups to check in. There is also office staff in the back, they are much calmer and more helpful.  Respond

12/06/11 1 1 1 1 Consistantly rolling in with a latte after you have been waiting in extreme pain for an hour without an apology is unacceptable. She was never on time and has a short work week. When my test results came in, they were not reviewed and on more than one occasion she was not prepared. After a course of med's which were not working according to lab results, prescribing them again was too much when you can barely walk. If questioned, she is very rude and takes great personal offence. We have found a new Dr. and the difference is amazing.  Respond

25/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Day is a wonderful doctor, kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable. She does spend a lot of time going over your issues with you and is open to letting you try different medications or treatments. She was very helpful with forms that I needed completed to get disability insurance due to fms.I couldn't say enough nice things about her.  Respond

11/01/11 3 1 5 5 Dr Day has been my doctor for more than 8 years. Can't say enough good things about my arthritis treatment that is now under control. My appointments are rarely on time but is typical as I've never known a doctor's room that runs like clockwork. My meds where changed up and the application methods too when it appeared not to be effective. They sure are now. My experience has been very good.  Respond

21/01/10 3 1 1 1 The first time I saw Heather, she seemed helpful and wanted me to get in with a chiropractor that she knew and a nutritionist. She never made those appointments. The next time I went, she didn't even recognize me. I retold my story of hip pain and she stared at the ceiling until I was through, handed me some drugs and then pushed me out the door saying there was nothing she can do.

17/06/09 5 5 5 5 I found Dr.Day to be very empathic, easy to talk with and considerate of my needs. She seems very knowledgeable and flexible too - willing to take my preferences into account when possible - so I have confidence that she will prescribe the best course of treatment throughout my illness. It will take a few years but an end is foreseeable and I look forward to Dr.Day helping me through it.  Respond
