Ratings for Dr. James Pattison-Bacon
I went in this past summer for some swelling in my legs and feet, it was so bad I could not walk drive or take care of my 2 kids. I went in he looked me up and down and said "fat people swell in heat." and discharged me. I am aware bigger people swell in heat cause i do, but no the point that they lose fuction and feeling in their feet. I went to the royal alex waited the 6 hours and found i had a clot in my leg and fluid build up that could have had permanent damage.
Excellent knowledge and bed side manner! I chatted with for a while about life and what was going on in the world. Great guy. I wish Canadian trained doctors had his knowledge and skills. It seems S African trained doctors are always better trained than ours.
I would just like to say that I went to the hospital the other day and had problems in the abdomen section. This doctor and his staff were absolutely wonderful. Yes I was in the hospital for almost 5 hours but they look after the more serious first and I respect that. However they ran every test possible and I commend both Dr. Bacon and his staff. They were wonderful and after having this pain for so long of which I did go see a doctor prior, I finally got results with Dr. Bacon and seeing that it is 3 days later I can honestly say he gave me the right medication and attention I needed that I feel absolutely great today. Thank you to Dr. Bacon and his staff. Lorraine
Very helpful Has given me more information on my oldest childs issue in 5 min than years of peds appointments. My youngest had chronic health problems Dr.Bacon realized the problem, she is healthy today no more er vists. Thank you very much to him
James never introduced him self to anyone(not even to my 8 yr old daughter who was the sick one-did not make her feel comfortable at all.Does not listen to his patients,I think he likes the sound of his own voice better.James has a HUGE chip on his shoulder that will hopefully end up getting him NO where in the medical field.I feel his decisions about medical attention is not whats best for the patient ,but was is best, is the money in his pocket!Very bad bed side manner!
