Ratings for Dr. Becky Wade
Quite possibly the worst doctor and human being I have even met in my life. I wished I had known about this website before seeing this so called doctor. RUDE, ANGRY and JUST PLAIN MEAN. she was dismissive right from the start. Yes I admit I am a bit overweight ( about 85% for weight). That does not mean every symptom I describe is due to my weight. It felt like the moment Dr Wade stepped into the room, she had already judged me and my symptoms. Highly do not recommend this doctor unless you like to be belittled. Horrible doctor, horrible person overall. Of note, I saw another doctor and was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia that was confirmed by endoscopy from a GI specialist. No Dr Wade, my stomache pain were not due to my weight and/or lack of exercise.
I have never been treated as poorly as I was by Dr. Wade. RUDE. Arrogant. According to her, every problem was due to needing to lose weight. Nothing was ever taken seriously. Once she kept insisting that I must have a history that I most certainly do not have. She did nothing to encourage her staff to pronounce my name right. I feel like I have PTSD from dealing with her and her little CNA.
Rude and condescending. Did not listen to my problems at all. Seems like she already had her diagnosis before i could finish my story. Quite arrogant and dismissive if she does not see any physical symptoms. I recommended staying away from Dr Wade and finding another doctor who actually cares for you as a patient.
The staff is lousy, the wait time is terrible, and if she can’t see physical symptoms she will dismiss your ailments. That doesn’t really work when someone suffers from a remittent autoimmune disease that doesn’t manifest continually. I’m appalled by the way she lets her staff “forget” requests for specialist, or put you on hold and intentionally hang up on you. I cannot fully and tactfully express my frustrations with her in a way that is polite or well mannered, but I can say that I will advise all patients of hers that may be suffering from an autoimmune disease, a mental disease, or chronic pain, she isn’t the doctor for you.
Dr. Wade was my doctor for years and I loved her! Then she was gone to another practice. Imagine my joy at finding my new insurance had her in their network. Fast forward to this morning. I arrive at my appointment, that unknown to me was at 8:40, Not the 8:50 that I had written down. The little blond at the front desk admonished me in front of everyone and gave me an appointment a month from now. She said, "It takes me 15 minutes to enter everything once you fill out the forms... so you don't have time now!" So this was my first time at the office and all I can think about is how much I DISLIKE HER STAFF! GRRRRRRRRR
Dr. Wade misdiagnosed my daughter for more than an year. She had pain 6 inches below her colar bone. Dr. Wade said the following: It is carteledge, stop using an underwire bra and come back in a month. Then: you are 40 pounds over weight, lose the weight and come back later. Then: it is nerve pain, take prescription pills and come back in 3 months. Then: it is probably psychosomatic, see therapist. Never once did she suggest a mamogram. It was breast cancer. She was 25 when finally diagnosed. She died on 3/28/2010 at 28 years old.
I recently moved from San Diego, CA and had an AMAZING doctor! I was worried about finding a good match here in Ventura, CA. I'm so happy to have met Dr. Wade. She is great! She spent plenty of time with me on my visit. My husband now sees her when he needs to go to the doctors. As for the office environment, I am not a fan of the front desk reps. They are rude.
