Dr. Alice Klinkhoff's Ratings
I have never commented about a doctor. She is one of the rudest doctors I've met in a long time. Refuses to listen and stands up indicating that she's about to leave when asking a question. She needs to retire and I am shocked she treats some patients like this. I even want to go further as complaining to the board of rheumatologist about her. Really really shocked about my experience with her. Please do not go to her. I thought she would be good since she has an impressive resume.
She's abrupt, rude, condescending, and if the diagnosis doesn't jump out at her, it isn't 'there'. She had a very poor way of relating to me, as I saw here with other statements/ratings. I'll never go back.
She is a sharp, straight talking, don't mince words dr. Love it. She'll tell you what she knows for sure, and what is uncertain. How to take yr meds, and when to be wortied and see her right away. Love her!!!
How can I rate someone more than a 5. If I could... she would get it! You've heard the expression "I owe my life to her" that's my Doc. I never thought I would live a productive life again. Once in her hands, I was and am thoroughly checked over on every visit: the joints, the meds, new issues, old issues, and even has an interest to ask a personal question. Back in the beginning, I received steriod injections into joints when the pain was unbearable on short notice. She is an exceptional doctor, knowledgeable, kind, and to the point. Your appointment time with her is whatever it needs to be, shorter or longer, to make that thorough assessment. In my books she's the best in the profession!
I have seen her for 18 years. First I have to say she's a really good doctor. Although sometimes I find it difficult to communicate with her because she is a little bit passive, but if you are well prepared with your questions, she can always give you a satisfied answer. Second, make your appointment earlier, it usually takes one and a half to two months.
Good luck getting past rude receptionist. "Not booking till next year" and hangs up on me before I can find out what I need to be referred to this Doctor who was recommend to me. I called back, many attempts to get past answering machine, and asked if I needed to get a referral specifically for this Dr. or just a general referral and was told I would have to have my doctor decide what I need, which doesn't answer my question. I have just moved and don't have a Doctor that knows me. I was told to go to a walk-in clinic. So now I am to go to a walk-in clinic Dr. who doesn't know me and get some kind of referral but I don't know what kind, to make a Dr, appointment for next year some time. Meanwhile my foot is hurting to the point I can barely walk. Maybe I can find a crawl-in clinic. Thanks a lot!
I visited Dr Klinkhoff today for the first time. I had been diagnosed with RA in Ireland 15 years ago but came off the medication when I came over here. The pain has got very bad so I was referred to her by my GP. My appt was at 8am and she came straight in and dived into the appt, she was so thorough, wrote everything down and asked every question. She then examined me thoroughly, checking each joint. She then administered Steroid injections to my knee and thumb as the swelling was so bad. She had another appt at 8.45am and went straight from me to them, and got so much in the 45 mins. I think Canadians are very lucky to have such great healthcare, my last rheum saw me for 5 mins each time, barely looked at me and medicated me.Most of the time I saw interns who were not the decision makers.If she is a little late, it is probably because she has so many patients.She has been doing this for 25 years and is obviously an expert-she just wants to get in and do her job, which I did she does.
