Ratings for Dr. A. Dodd
Dr Dodd at Central Park Medical Clinic in Burnaby unfortunately died in hospital last weekend after a very sudden admission for an unforeseen illness. He worked right to the end, apparently, which doesn't surprise me. Terrific doctor, terrific manner. Since he was in his 80s, he clearly wasn't planning retirement yet! Great sense of humour too, so he'd probably have a smiling comment on his unplanned departure.
I've never had a doctor that would go out of their way on their own time to help a patient. Trying to reach a specialist is even more difficult in a time of emergency. I was leaving for a trip, and the week before my skin was so hard to handle, I called doctor Dodd and he got back to me very quickly. I definitely felt much better knowing I had the chance to speak with him before going away.
Dr. Dodd is awesome. He's very knowledgeable. He's a real gentleman. He calmed me down when I bought my baby to see him a month ago. Dr. Dodd told me that my baby's eczema was nothing of my fault and that it will most likely gone after my baby turns 1. Dr. Dodd's soothing manner made me feel welcome and that I could ask him any questions that I have with my baby. And because of Dr. Dodd, my baby's infected eczema is gone and is once again a very happy baby.
Dr. Dodd was referred to me through a friend. He's a nice enough guy, however he misdiagnosed me in a terrible way. I had cancer at the time I visited him, he told me that it was nothing, and if the nodule didn't go away in another 6 months, he would give me a shot of cortisone to make it go away. Excuse me, what if it is cancer, a shot of Cortisone will only aggravate the cancer cells. If I wasn't proactive to find out what I really had, and had it surgically removed, I wouldn't be here today. When I went back to see Dr. Dodd with the results from my oncologist, he didn't even apologize for his mistake. He's lucky that I didn't sue him. I am surprised to see he has such good ratings here, because he's not anywhere near being a competent dermatologist, I would NOT recommend Dr. Dodd to anyone, never!
I just found this site after having to complain about a really bad doctor I went to for walk-in (skin condition at Cross Road's clinic... Dr. N) anyway. I was looking for all the doctors and I totally remembered how COMPLETELY AWESOME Dr. Dodd was. I went to see him years ago when I was a teen. I wonder if he's retired now... because he was really old then. anyway. I wanted to thank him again wherever he is because he treated my condition with care and attention that other dermatologist just didn't do (Dr. Francis Jang?)
