Ratings for Dr. Thomas Corkum
I have been seeing Dr. Corkum for almost 40 years. He is the best Dr. I have ever seen. He is personable & makes you feel totally relaxed while examining you. I only wish he was my G.P.as well. He knows what he is doing. I dread the day that he retires as he can never be replaced. He has also helped me with other problems other than gynecological issues. I can't imagine anyone ever saying some of the things I have read here. An excellent Dr. in every way with a great bedside manner!
I was referred to Doctor Corkum. I had been to gynecologists before for pap smears and knew what to expert. Shocked as all get out when i was told to take off my clothes and he proceeded to massage my breasts. I wasn't there for a breast exam, I was there for a pap exam. He smiled when he said everything feels great. I felt so violated I never went back.
I have been going to see Dr Corkum since I was pregnant with my first child, so about 25 years. My Mother In Law and my Mother all see him too. I love Dr Corkum, he is very kind and professional and makes you feel at ease. I have read some negative reviews and I wonder if they are talking about the same Doctor, because the comments are ludicrous . Any way I will be devastated when he retires and I have to find someone else, because Dr Corkum knows his stuff.
First-rate doctor who ensures that both you feel comfortable and your reason for referral is fully explored and answered. His courteous approach allows you to feel relaxed during exams, and, while his exams are comprehensive, it is over before you know it...a good thing in my books! I also appreciate that he takes the time for "small talk," while also gaining important information regarding the purpose of your visit. I never feel rushed when with him, and yet, at the same time, I never have to wait around for my appointment! Prompt, caring, experienced, and thorough.
I have had Dr. Corkum for over 15 years, and he has been nothing but a gentleman. Yes he does things differently, but I have had some bad women Dr's over the years and none of them have made me feel as comfortable as Dr. C when performing this exam. He talks, jokes, carries on and before you know it , its over. He has been nothing but kind and respectful, I prefer this to having to be rushed in and out, and no one caring about your privacy or medical concerns. I noticed a comment about pulling on the wrists to get you down to the correct position at the end of the bed, thank God,,,, nothing more awkward than trying to shimmy down or up out of the position. I can't believe women would equate a full exam (rectal and all) to some kind of perversion. I have had medical issues found out resulting from his exams, and without his thoroughness, they would never have been dealt with. We seem to have a shortage of gynecologists, the one I had before him, I had to wait hours past my appointment time to be seen, it was awful service, so I thank God for a Dr. like Mr. Corkum, who does not over schedule appointments and treats you with dignity and respect.
