I think dr Papo is a great doctor. Knowledgable, kind, thorough. However, it takes forever to get an appointment, it is always rushed, there's always a wait, and her secretary is rude.

In my experience with her she was consistently rude and rushed. At times she made insulting or demeaning comments. She was uncomfortable with any aspect of women's health (ie pap exam).

Dr Dawn Papo is very unprofessional poor doctor at best will not listen to patients refuses to help and even goes out of her way to set up road blocks the staff is very pushy non professional and out right rude
Only get ten minutes Dr Papo cancels appointments as she sees fit and if you disagree or question she will spend the 10 min on how she is insulted and won't even take the time to look at the patent. She is more like a cash cow getting people through like cattle she should be embarrassed to call herself a professional would not recommend her to anyone and when you mention her name in town you get a ohh her ya she is terable. So shame on you Dr Papo you need to treat people better or get out of the profession you are suppost to be the person people can trust count on and help out but you have got to be the worst Dr I have ever seen. Shame on you.

Dawn has been my doctor for 8 years. I am not easily impressed by doctors, and have found her to be knowledgeable, kind, intelligent, and regards me as a partner in my health care, not as a "patient". I have leukemia (chronic) and need frequent bloodwork. Since her former miserable receptionist retired, I am much happier and get in to see her quite quickly. I am a well-informed patient (which most doctors prefer) and know how to read my bloodwork results, as well as note any changes which may be relevant to my health. I choose to not be a victim, but to be a strong self-advocate, and I believe she appreciates that as much as I appreciate that she does not speak condescendingly to me (ever!). I, too, followed her when she left Port Alberni, and I'm glad I did.

I found Dr. Papo very cold. I left feeling worse about my personal well being than before I arrived at her office. I would not recommend her to my worst enemy.

The quality of her treatment has dropped severely over the 4 years I saw her. I had advanced symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and her lack of urgency about referring me to a specialist has left me with what appears to be permanent loss of function in my hand. When I complained about it she "fired" me as a patient.

I would not trust her judgement - I'm left with the impression she's trying to get as many billings in as possible through each day.

Dr Papo is very professional, knowledgeable & thorough, she may be the best doctor I've ever had. Only con's are her support staff who on several occasions tend to be inflexible bordering on rude or condescending.

Very unorganized staff. Lots of miscomunication. Does not take the time to make your health worries warranted. Not good with children. I will be looking for a new doctor.

Awesome doctor! Has too many patients though? Takes minimum a week to get in to see her. She is a great long term issue doctor but if you are just feeling unwell you will have to go to a walk in clinic. Her head MOA isn't a very friendly lady either. She is a really caring, knowledgable doctor. Will continue to see her despite the staff and appointment issues.
