Dr. Paul Savage's Ratings
Horrendous behavior of the wife of Dr. Savage, who shockingly is also the office manager of his practice! This woman's behaviour is not only overshadowing the efforts that this Doctor has earned to be in his professional position but is sadly damaging his reputation. I have never experienced such degrading, atrocious, rude, and demeaning behaviour in my lifetime. God forbid are the days where you have the right as a patient to ask any questions about your condition without the ramifications of this woman. I have had the opportunity to go through all of the reviews and if you are one of the fortunate who have not experienced her behaviour, perhaps you should before acting in defense. It is NOT acceptable how she chooses to communicate with patients and is most definitely abusive in nature. What is most unfortunate is that Dr.Savage, who is reputable in his expertise, allows this abuse to continue. A sad set of circumstances indeed.... I will not be returning and will be sure to let others know of my experience. There are many reputable specialists in this city where you will never have to be faced with this nor would it be tolerated.
i have seen first hand Carole Savage the manager at Elbow Retina Center verbally abuse patients at the office yelling at them because the elderly patient cant make the 7am appt time they were given or because the patient has there phone on yes i understand the doctor is very busy but that does not give her the right to yell at any patient she wants I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE WITH A COMPLAINT TO CONTACT THE COLLAGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS if enough people do this then they will be forced to make some drastic changes at that office
Dr. Paul Savage is the best doctor, ever. To me and my family, he's sent by God to do great work for humanity! When I first heard from one eye doctor that I might have a problem with one of my eyes, he then sent me to see a specialist, an ophthalmologist. This ophthalmologist then told me that all I needed was an injection for $400.00 and he wanted to make sure that I was covered by my insurance. This was his only concern, me paying him this money. We had booked a family vacation, flight, hotel and so on, but he insisted that I cancel as my life was now in apparent danger. He then sent my husband and I to go to the clinic's drugstore to make sure we had insurance. Anyway, we decided to seek second opinion. The second eye doctor confirmed that there was a problem and when I told her that I had already seen an ophthalmologist, she wanted to send me back to the same doctor; I declined, asking her to find me the best doctor for my eye. She did, she found not just a good doctor, she found Dr. Paul Savage, the best doctor in the whole world. Our first encounter with Dr. Savage was encouraging and relaxing; he explained the procedure and ask me to take my vacation if I needed to do so. From day one, I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Savage. I read about people complaining about the wife, here is the thing, if you don't like to follow rules like shutting off your phone, why don't you treat yourself? Stop complaining people, there are people or countries with no Medicare. What are people complaining about? I guess we have too much freedom that we begin to take everything for granted. And if you don't like them based on your insecurities, it's something you might like to work on! I sincerely thank Dr. Savage for treating my condition; my thanks also go to his team, they are very professional.
I have been a patient for over ten years and have never had a problem with staff they efficient we'll trained and considerate. There is a responsibility of the patient when seeing a doctor and in this case a highly reputable skilled surgeon. Acknowledged as the best retinal surgeon in western canada. To treat the office and staff as they treat you and in my eyes and ten of my immediate family and friends who are patients of his too. They are the best. Get some manners you people out there and open your eyes and you will see a very highly surgeon with a fine trained staff. Turn your cell phones off as requested and behave yourselves. These people are not slaves they are professional medical staff and I and many others consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to have him as our. Dr
OMG!!! I am flabbergasted at my visit to Dr. Savage’s office today. This red headed woman came up behind me in the waiting room and started screaming at me. Literally. She called a gentmen out from the office to assist her. I had my cell phone on, but I had it on silent as I was waiting for an update on my father’s health. She involved the entire waiting room to her cause, without even allowing me to say anything. I asked her if she could lower her voice and stop yelling at me, so that I could say why I even had the power on, but she was so verbally abusive and hostile, I wasn’t “permitted” top say a word. I was told that she was tired of people on their phones and not paying attention to the sign up front, I tried to explain I had it on silent as to not disturb other patients, but she cut me short. Told me Dr. Savage would not see me that I was to check out. I asked to speak to Dr. Savage or have him call me. She told me he WOULD NOT. She was speaking for him. What gives, does this man not have any self respect. So, after having my eyes just dialated, I was forced to leave the building. When I was leaving she was asking all the people in the waiting room for their names so she could have a back up, sensing I would file a complaint. The “older” patients in the waiting room were commenting, you young people just can’t do anything without your phones! I’m 57!!! In hind sight, I should have asked at the front desk for their phone number for my sister to call their office if she had to reach me immediately. But I never even though of that, as in my family physician’s office, they say it’s fine to have the phone on, just the sound/ringer off at all times. WHAT AN EYE OPENER TODAY. This woman should not be allowed to own a pet! Any recommendations on a different opthamologist? Could use one after today, since Dr. Savage doesn’t want to see me as a patient anymore. (I’m back in the office, desparately, trying to read my screen )
