Dr. Tamara Pringsheim's Ratings
Dr. Tamara Pringsheim is a professional. Technically, she is very knowledgeable, however, she seems to be too focused on her narrow area of clinical specialization: Tourette Syndrome. You would do well to consider her, if you complement her efforts with that of other physicians and non-medical practitioners.
Sorry,I don't agree with Dr.Pringsheim's poor rating. Calgary presently has four Neurologists. The wait times are extreme. I have been recently diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. She answered all of my concerns and was genuinely interested in my welfare.
I unfortunately got stuck with this doctor while I was on call. She was rude, uncaring, and failed to get a diagnosis for my problem. Fortunately, the doctor who came on after her made the diagnosis and I started my treatment.
Dr. Pringsheim has treated my child for Tourette's Syndrome for a few years now and I can see why she heads up the program. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has a fabulous bedside manner. My child is incredibly shy and he will converse quite easily with Dr. Pringsheim! She has been really great with referrals to other professionals, trails with medications (followed up with phone calls to see how the meds are working) and never makes you feel like you are being rushed through an appointment. Her associate, Carolyn is also fantastic, and she is great with follow ups, etc. Anyone looking for a Children's Neurologist need look no further.
I can't say I was overly impressed with her knowledge on Tourette Syndrome given she's the head of the Calgary Tourette Syndrome Clinic. I didn't receive a phone call for 6 weeks after my referral to the Clinic, so I called to find out what was up and later the information package I was promised was never sent to me. She did however manage to squeeze my child in within 3 weeks after I contacted the office, (apparently 5-6 months wait list) which was very considerate. I spent over an hour with her associate (it is a learning hospital) on background however Dr. Pringsheim only spent enough time with me to write a prescription. As my child’s advocate I practically had to convince the associate that one tic in particular was indeed a TS Tic and that it needed to be addressed. Will I see her again... probably because I have no other options when it comes to this city and Tourette Syndrome treatment. Overall I'm disappointed and wouldn't recommend. :(
