Dr. Marina Pretorius's Ratings
Dr. Pretorious is a wonderful doctor. Very compassionate, caring and makes you feel very comfortable. She explains things well and is very knowlegable. As per some other reviews, her receptionist is lacking in social skills and could take some pointers from her employer. She is always in a hurry and trying to rush you off the phone when you call in. I understand she's busy, we all are but this is her job.
I absolutely loved Dr Pretorius and she was my dr while I was pregnant with my son and she delivered him dec 23 2009 in Lindsay. She was so helpful and caring and I cant wait to see her with my next pregnancy. Great Job Marina.. youre a great Dr!!
Lindsay DOES appreciate Dr. Pretorius! She is a wonderful dr and in a town that has few family drs, she is a HUGE asset! It's too bad that she, like the other drs, are so overloaded. Regardless of this however, she still manages to do a superb job!
Absolutely fantastic doctor! She delivered my first baby. She is taking care of me for prenatal care during my second pregnancy and I am delighted that she will be delivering my second child. She is always on schedule and makes me feel very comfortable.
Marina is a fabulous doctor. I only wish her secretary would not make me feel so bad for calling when myself or my kids are sick. We'd rather not be sick. So I'm sorry to cramp her style but my goodness, kindness goes a long way when a fellow human being is worried.
Wonderful doctor, so glad that I got her. Agree with person who said she is mindful of finances and always ready to give samples. Always looks so professional, and does not rush you at all. Her receptionist is very friendly to me.
Cancelled myself as a patient today. Can hardly ever get through on phone...rude receptionist...can't accomodate me for a physical, only do a physical Wed. am or Thursday afternoon, and was told they would not book one for me after 3 pm because they are only open till 4...had to get my sister to keep calling on the previous Friday all day long, no one picked up the phone, same on the following Monday, finally on Tues. Feb. 10 receptionist picked up the phone, was rude to my sister etc. I refuse to take a day off work to have my physical..called my sisters's doctor and she took me on as a patient right away, and had no problem with booking my appt. for a physical on a Monday, which is my day off...people that live in the real world in this economy, simply can't afford to take a day off work to see a doctor...sad to think that because of the doctor shortage, they think they can be rude, because most people can't find a family doctor. Already found another doctor!
I feel very comfortable with Dr Pretorius. She does not make you feel silly when you ask questions and listens to your concerns. Her visits are never rushed and very thorough. We are very fortunate to have such excellent doctors such as Dr Pretorius and Dr Stanley in this time of uncertainty with doctors and their availability. Lindsay is a friendly town with lots to offer. We hope you stay for many years. Nadine Westacott
I have had this Doctor for about a year and I think she is an excellent Doctor. She took charge and ordered several tests for me and encouraged me to look after myself again. I had neglected myself for about 1 1/2 years due to my husband's profound illness and she got me back on track again with my own health. She has a very pleasant and professional personality. Very easy to talk to.
