Ratings for Dr. Alan A. Binette
I've been his Patient for last 25 yrs, i have seen other doctor's threw the years and i have always gone back to him. Yes he doesn't always remember he delivered both my son's or something silly like remember my husband's name, but last few weeks I've had some issues and they got me in right away and never made me feel like i wasn't important. He does care and so does his staff.
I have been a patient with Dr. Binette since he joined the practice in Medford. Over 26 years ago. Not only is he my gyn dr he is also my GP. He has seen me thru many difficult times. He and his staff have always been so compassionate to me over the years. His knowledge of medicine is remarkable. If he cannot recommend a good specialist here, he always refers to excellent Dr.'s in metropolitan cities. I can't say enough about the relationship I have with him and his practice. His care, his humor , his recommendations on travel and wine it's like having a good friend ! He is one of the few great doctors left in the Rogue Valley. I highly recommend this practice. I was born and raised in east Medford and he was a welcome sight when he chose Medford to practice!
After trying to conceive for 10 years and seeing 4 different Dr's I found Dr binette. He has been the best doctor,great sense of humor. He has been the only dr I have felt comfortable with and after a few months we were pregnant and now have 2 beautiful kids.
I've been going to him for 20 years and can't imagine having any other doctor. He is the brightest (according to other doctors) and the most kindest (according to his patients) doctor I've ever known. Truly a first-rate physician with compassion, humor, and a world of expertise.
Been a patient for 24 years. In all that time there has been only 2 times where my appointment has been on time. The office constantly overbooks his appointments. Always at least 45 minute wait time, even if your the first appointment of the day. He delivered 2 of my three children and is an amazing doctor but the office staff and the wait times just to see him left me searching for a new doctor.
After reading the review below this one, I just had to write. Dr. Binette is the most caring, knowledgeable doctor I know. I have been going to him for over 20 years and now I'm going to see if he will be my primary physician also. He has diagnosed me with symptoms outside his Ob-Gyn specialty, where specialists were not able to. If you want a caring and very smart doctor , Dr. B is your answer.
Awful & unorganized! He deliver 2 out of 4 of my children. He runs women through his office and labor & delivery like a hurd of cattle. At first he seems sweet and very patient, but after your done having babies he kicks you to the curb or doesnt remember ever seeing you. During my last appointment in his office, I started o cry and felt dehumanized. My husband got to my appointment late and he walked into the exam room with me crying and had to take over rest of the appointment. I couldnt speak anymore. If you want to be treated disrespectful, than he's the Dr for you. Yes, he's know to do good c-sections and surgery but he gets way to much credit where credit isn't due. If he's so busy that even with a chart in front of him...that he cant remember you, or that he delivered your children, or asks e hat form of birth control you're using when the chart infront of him clearly shows he did your tubal ligation....how lame!!! He's a meglomaniac perv!
Nurse doesn't listen to me on the phone!! I mentioned a concern about a cold medicine while pregnant and she said "of course you can take your vitamin" and I reiterated what I wanted to take and she said "your vitamins are not a problem." When I asked that she consult with the Dr. she did (thankfully) and called back and said I didn't need an appointment and that I will be fine. I will be going elsewhere for my next pregnancy. Either he is as dismissive as her or bad at hiring the most important staff he could hire. So upsetting.
Loved him and his office, but in the last year he and his nurse have seemed dismissive. He doesn't take the time to listen and address concerns, just says "don't worry, it's normal." To a patient who is visibly/clearly worried , this is not helpful in the least. Nurse doesn't even listen on the phone most of the time. Friendly when you are there, but rushed and curt on the phone. It's unfortunate, I have always loved my precious visits. Which is saying something for an OB appointment.
