Ratings for Dr. J Liddle
This doctor is a hack!! Be for worned, if you have a child who is not in perfect health, stay away or leave her practice immediately. Jane is a know it all, condisending woman with a god complex. When you question her decisions, she will "speak over you" and treat you like an adolesent. My son has been with her since birth. he was diagnosed with autism at the age of three, but liddle (notice i left out doctor) decided to keep it to herself for a year and let my wife and I struggle cause she wanted to make sure. After the diagnoses she set out a strong plan that we should follow and if we disagreed with her, she would belittle us. The final straw with Jane was when she prescribed prozac for anxiety, mom and i were hesitant but she reasurred us she had lots of patients on it and it was the best drug for children. After one week I went to renew the prescirption and noticed the dose was doubled. I called the office and she said it was standard practice, I stated that my son was on other meds and maybe a blood test should be done. Here's where the i know what i'm doing attitude came out and your son will e fine. Guess what, my son just spent 2 days in CHEO due to a psychoctic break because he was on resperidone and Prozac amphlifies it by 50%(cheo said it was like a cocaine overdose). This woman doesn't know what she's doing, she takes the fast track instead of doing her reserch and she thinks she knows how to look after your kid better then you. Oh and if you leave her practice because you don't agree with her, she might call child services on you because you didn't follow her orders. This woman needs to lose her Licence and, Im surprised no child has lost there life in practice!!
Stay away from this Pediatrician if you have young children, she does not assess the eitiology of the presenting problems as reported by parents with serious psychological issues. She does not refer parents to therapy or courses on parenting , she is quick to prescribe medications for toddlers that are prohibited to use for children. She probabably does not realize that her compassion for first time mothers could be putting helpless children to a series of health risks for which she could prescribe additional and different drugs.
We love Doctor Liddle. When my little one was first born and wasn't well. She took the time to even call us at home for test results. She is amazing and really cares for the little ones. She takes the time needed to answer all or questions and never leaves us waiting long. Really not sure how she manages it all so will. The team is also great. I feel fortunate to have her as our daughters doctor.
She's been my 3 kids' pediatrician for the past 6 years. She and her office staff are wonderful and I can almost always get an appointment the sameday for an emergency. She's adamant about the neccesity of immunizations (understandable given her background working with refugees) but was willing to allow me to space them out. She's very caring, and has also called me at home to followup after an illness or called in the evening with test results.
We have been taking our children to Dr. Liddle for 11 years. I think she's great. She has always been thorough and knowledgeable and followed up on our child's symptoms via telephone. She strongly encourages ALL vaccinations but is mostly respectful if you decline (we declined chicken pox). The visits can feel rushed but she does answer your questions if you ask them and doesn't make you feel like you are taking up too much time. She has been respectful of my son as he approaches puberty and this is huge for him and has eased some of his embarrassment and discomfort. I wish it was easier to get same day appointments. I just end up taking my kids to the clinic for sore throats, astham complications because there is never space when I call (after 11 years) but my friend has 2 kids and she gets in every single time and has never had to visit the clinic (in 8 years as patient). Maybe it's just me. LOL However, I really like and trust her and think she is a fantastic pediatrician
Nice woman but I find her very anxious, seems rushed and misses some key check up requirements. From personal experience and that of several other patients is that Dr Liddle sends her patients to CHEO far to often to wait for many hours for something she should feel comfortable diagnosing. She sends everyone to cardiology for heart "murmurs" which cardiology most often does not find. I am not confident in her diagnostic skills. Love her nurse!
