Ratings for Dr. Nanette Fouche
I just love her to bits, she listens, she gives great advice, always explains the problem and suggests appropiate medicine. She is very busy and is on top of that also a mom, she relates to my issues and never rushes her appointments, sometimes she is late but even then she still takes her time. She is also funny and I think the world need more doctors like her.
I am very disappointed with my care at Dr. Fouche's office. I found out from an acquaintance in town that my own physician had left her practice! Why was a letter not sent out, advising her patients of the change? When this has happened to me in the past, I have been notified by phone or letter. Dr. Fouche was never on time for appointments. I was misdiagnosed a few times as well, but at least she referred me to a specialist each time. On several occasions, I had to phone the office only to find out that they were supposed to have phoned me with test results and had not. No explanation or apologies given any time. On one occasion, I was accused of having made two appointments on consecutive days and had only shown up for one of them. Why would I book appointments two days in a row? The error had been made on their end but I was told I should have called to cancel the first appointment and may be charged for the visit. I couldn't have called to cancel it because I didn't know I had it!
I was also very disappointed with how Dr. Fouche handled her decision to leave her practice. Not only were we not given any notice, we never did receive a letter informing us how to receive copies of our history to pass on to a new doctor. After several calls to the clinic that she left, we were able to get a phone number to the company that is storing our files. Today I found out it will cost me $80 per adult and $50 per child to have a digital certified copy of our own medical history! I fail to see why we need to pay to access information that should have been made available to us prior to leaving her practice. It is unfortunate, because we quite liked Dr. Fouche as a doctor, but after having her do a disappearing act on us twice (she disappeared for a month while switching practices when we had a new baby and we were left to go to a walk in clinic) our final impression is not a favorable one.
I am so put out by Dr. Fouche for not giving her patients notice that she was leaving. I was told when I phoned to book an appointment in November that she had left and they were looking for a replacement. The receptionist also mentioned Dr. Fouche would be sending her patients a letter outlining what our options are - that was November and here we are almost February and still no letter or replacement. I think her lack of concern for her patients is horrible. Her credibility as a family physician is severely compromised by her unprofessionalism
Dr. Fouche took over from my dr who left on a long break. Was apprehensive because I really liked my old dr. My daughter and I have seen Dr. Fouche many times over the last few years and I have found her to be a fantastic dr. She is not rushed, and she listens, and was willing to hear about my own dr 'reseach' from online diagnosing. Im my experiance that is uncommon.
