Dr. Angela Mazza-Whelan's Ratings
I was a patient for many many years and had no complaints up until the last three or four years. I was diagnosed with a specialized condition that Dr. Mazza-Whelan admitted she knew nothing about but then wanted to dispute my symptoms with me. Her patient care seemed to go downhill during this time and I felt judged and not at all cared for on regular visits. When my health began to decline, she basically threw her hands up and said there was nothing she could do for me. Recently I needed an appointment and had to wait 10 days to see her as she was "busy" and/or "out of the office". She told me she is going part time and to start looking for a new physician. So I am...and not having an easy time of it. All the reviews for the doctors currently accepting patients are terrible!
I have been a patient for over 25 plus years as well. She is still in my book, one of the top GP in Ontario. Coming from a rural back ground I understand the complains of the newer patients that want service right now. Dr. MazzaWhelan want it now, but she is still by far the best for the doctor for the value out there. March 13, 2015
I was a patient for 25+ years but have noticed in the past 5 years you can never get an appointment with her. She is never there and her receptionist is very dismissive and can be rude. My whole family went to Dr. Mazza-Whelan and now we are all moving on to new doctors as we have all had the same experience of not being able to get an appointment. I believe she has started working part time now as she is never there and you can never get an appointment. The receptionist is the one to decide whether not you get an appointment or not. If she doesn't feel that your reason for an appointment is not important enough she will offer up her own advice on what you should do. I don't want advice from the receptionist. I want to see my doctor! I have found a wonderful new doctor that I am able to get an appointment with whenever I need one and I'm very happy. I was sad to have to leave Dr. Mazza-Whelan as I had been with her so long but I know now I made the right decision.
it is true; good luck getting an appointment when you need one. I have been a patient for +20 and always a problem. This is likely due to the fact that she is never there; not sure if she works part-time or too busy dealing with her one issues but her staff covers for her. I did not go for years as thankfully I was healthy, and when I did go to see her, she was rude and disbelieving of my symptoms and not supportive at all. I was not pleased.
Angela was the BEST doctor I have ever had!! When I moved north & had to leave her, it was awful. Fifteen years ago during a regular exam she just happened to notice a small mole on my back. She did a biopsy & called me that night to have me in the next day to remove it. Tests later revealed in another 3 months I would have had to have chemo.I found another doctor up here in the north but still miss her dearly!! She also left it open that in the future if I ever needed a second opinion to call & she would see me. She is a doctor that will go above & beyond & her honesty makes her the doctor she is today.
Dr. Mazza Whalen is the best!!!! Never had a problem with her or her staff. When I had my daughter in the middle of the night she was there first thing in the morning to check on both of us. Very compassionate and understanding. Has helped me and the rest of the family with many of lifes obstacles!!!!
Dr. Mazza-Whelan has been my doc since I was 22. I am now 43. When I gave birth to my son, she was at the hospital the next day checking him. She has always taken the best care of my son and I. I need to see specialists and have tests done frequently, and she is always on top of my medical health issues. If I am needing other care, Ang is immediately on top of it making the necessary referrals. I appreciate how she is the one to contact me when she finds negative results in my tests. She is more like a friend than a doctor, as she knows so much about me and my son. She never fails to ask how he is and is genuinely concerned with any and all issues we deal with on a medical or personal level. Our medical system is so lacking fine doctors. I am extremely thankful to have Dr. Mazza Whelan as my family physician.
We had Angela for over 20 years. While there, she took great care of our whole family- over 12 of us went there. My own family now goes elsewhere as we had an unfortunate falling out due to my disability, but I don't blame her for it. I think she gets frustrated when she doesn't have all the answers for certain illnesses, and then one can lose touch on a compasison level. Although our new doctor is great, I do miss Angela and felt secure with her expertise for my family. There is no better doctor for children however- they get first rate. Adults, well, she does what she can.....
