Dr. John Neary's Ratings
I am surprised at those who say that the receptionist treated them nicely. May be they gave her some bribes to get special treatment! That receptionist was a complete witch. She was rude, mean, and inconsiderate. It is truly a sin to be nasty to people who are sick. But that is exactly what she did. Talking to her on the phone was a complete nightmare. She does not belong in the healthcare system, period. She is better off working in a prison, guarding murderers. I know I am using strong language here. But I cannot forget how she treated me with disdain at a really low point in my life, when I was facing a life threatening illness. I hope any doctor who wishes to hire Shirley really thinks ten times before doing that. If you do hire her, have no doubt, people will curse you for that.
Dr. Neary has always taken wonderful care of my family and I. The only problem I've had with his practice is his receptionist... She might be the most disgruntled, disrespectful and generally crusty person I've ever had the displeasure of communicating with. I understand that working in the healthcare field is hardly glamorous and that some people are not always curtious when dealing with her. But my family and I have never been anything but polite when talking to her and have recevied nothing but disrespect and rudeness at every occasion.
deeply sadden to find out he is retiring, always found him compassionate and knowledgable ...always felt uncomfortable with Shirley , found her very short with me on numerous occasions , from reading the previous comments , I was not alone in this feeling
Like many others, I am baffled by some of the remarks of others. I feel blessed to have been with Dr. Neary's practice since day one and now have to find another doctor with the same experience, understanding and compassion. Shirley has always been kind and understanding with our family. I am sad to see him go but, I am happy for him. It seems it's time for him to move on. Thank-you Dr. John and Shirley.
I am sad to know Dr. Neary is leaving. Hope an equally good doctor will take over. However, I wish the new doctor will replace the existing staff who doesn't know how to talk to patients. Staff in this job should know that people asking for appointments or when calling home they are calling patients and not people who are at the best of health. If they have a lot of patient matters to deal with then this is a practice with too many patients or too little staff for which innocent patients are not responsible. Staff should talk to patients kindly and patiently despite the stress of the job. Patient service is not for anybody. The present staff is just so bad she is in the wrong profession. Please treat people who are sick and needing help like human beings and selflessly, so you will also get respect. Respect must be earned not demanded.
One of the very good family doctors with a miserable receptionist who has asked my family to go the pharmacist to get treatment on numerous occasions. She should leave to find a job that she likes better than treating patients badly.
Dr. Neary is one of the best Doctors ever met and he is a great doctor who is knowledgeable, and compassionate. Myself & my Family are blessed to have him as our family physician. He always takes time to listen , understand and help. His treatments has always worked for all of our family. We are sorry, to know that he is moving and we miss him as a Doctor and a good human being. We wish success and peace always follow him.
Shirley is a great person and has always been good to us .
I am sad to know that Dr. Neary is leaving. He was a great doctor when you finally got an appointment to see him. It's almost like you had to plan to be sick. wasn't so quick with our daughter's immunizations and care. Shirley is a miserable person and I hated calling there to make an appointment. We left this practice because of her. Maybe retirement should be the next step for her.
I am shocked to hear that Dr. Neary or receptionist Shirley are being spoke of so unkindly. Our family(s) are blessed to have them attend to our medical needs. I am in the process of looking for a new Physician now that he will be leaving his practice soon. We are spoiled and will be hard pressed to find another Dr. as good as he and a receptionist as kind. I find it hard to believe some of the terrible comments.
