Dr. Dayle Sigesmund's Ratings
As everyone else has already said, the wait times are pretty ridiculous. I mean, I understand the doctor doesn't want to have any of her time wasted, but to show up for an appointment at 11 and only walk in around 2 is a bit extreme, especially when small children are concerned. You literally need to bring food, entertainment, books, etc. But, as people have also said, this is the only downside. The doctor is phenomenal, knowledgeable, and takes time with each patient. I didn't find the receptionists rude either - I think people need to put themselves in their shoes, working in an office packed with people waiting, asking them every two seconds when they're going to get in. It would get old pretty fast. Anyway, well worth the time spent.
Wait times are EXTREMELY long- 3-4hrs.
The doctor is WAY overbooked, office is too small. Seriously, 4hours in the waiting room, 15 people ahead of me in line and 10 people standing on the little hallway outside the waiting room.
Appointments cancelled 15 minutes before the actual appointment time. Receptionists are VERY RUDE! You are not treated like a person here, your just another day, another dollar.
I only gave 5 stars for the 'knowledge' considering the fact that Dr. Sigesmund is an opthamologist and she's gotta know what she's doing, but her and her staff lack A LOT of other aspects and are so rude, it's disgusting.
I was at Dr. Sigesmund's office just last week and I have to tell you it was the best so far. My son is autistic and it is very difficult to have him sit in one place to get his eyes examined. This time however there was a new addition to the office, the orthoptist was excellent, Dinousha I believe is her name, she is a young female she is hard to miss. She was basically full of magic and life, my son loved her. She knows how to work with children and extremely patient. For once my experience was not so bad. She took the time to answer my questions and of course was phenomenal with the patients. The long wait was worth it for once.
Very good doctor with an EXTREMELY RUDE receptionist. Who gives her the right to yell at parents children for being too loud. Not helpful at all. The visit would have been much better if there were better staff.
A great doctor with an extremely rude and not helpful receptionist. I guess all specialists always have a busy office but at least try to accommodate the always overbooked patients with cranky children due to the long wait time in a more welcoming tone. It seems that the doctor is always in a hurry...you wait 3-4 hours and then in a minute or two she will ask you to come back again in a few months.
From all the reviews I figure that she is the best but I fail to understand why every time I rush for my appointment time there is always a room full (at least 10 or more) patients already waiting for their appointments hours before mine was supposed to be....
Amazing. Compassionate. Caring. Wonderful. Just some of the words I think of when I think about Dr. Sigesmund. Yes, you have to wait, sometimes it is 3-4 hours, sometimes it is 1-2 hours. It sucks, but Dr. Sigesmund explained our daughters surgery and answered all of our questions clearly. On the day of the surgery Dr. Sigesmund came to get my daughter and talked to us immediately after the surgery to let us know what happened and how things went.
If you cannot give up 1-4 hours for your kid, don't bother going and explain to them in 10-20 years why their vision is gone or why it is horrible. The drops take time and I am glad Dr. Sigesmund puts the time in with her patients.
There is a shortage of pediatric ophthalmologists. Dr. Sigesmund puts in more hours a day then most, and does it with a smile. I wish she could be my daughters full time doctor.
This is the state of our health care. More money needs to be invested so that we can keep talented doctors in Canada.
I doubt Dr. Sigemund will ever read this, but in case she does .... you ROCK! Thank you for everything and please keep doing what you do.
