Ratings for Dr. Margaret Goodacre
Dr Goodacre is a nice person but lacks knowledge for diagnoses. I came to her with head aches, dizziness and she just refereed me to other doctors not knowing what was wrong thinking it might've been anxiety. Later when I came to her to talk about my mental health she just brushed it off and said I was fine. The comments below that say she is compassionate with mental health was the complete opposite experience that I had with her.
Mediocre experience. Very surface based diagnosis.
I've had Dr Goodacre since she took over for Dr.Opie when he retired. She is a very nice lady.i do like her. My only problem with her is being rushed through the appointment. I feel like she no longer has time to discuss my medical problems. I've put forth my feelings so I'll wait until my next appointment to see of it has been brought to her attention.
Dr. Goodacre is a kind and caring person, who is very easy to talk to. The wait at the Rosedale clinic can sometimes be a little long, but I feel like that is probably an issue at all doctors offices. I recently had a miscarriage and Dr Goodacre took time out of her day to call me when she wasn't even working to send her apologies and help me get the procedures I needed to move on. My sister had some issues with her not believing that she had PCOS when in fact she ended up having it. They aren't perfect but she is still a great doctor.
Dr. Goodacre is amazing! I remember when she was fairly new at Rosedale. Im happy she took over for my other doctor when he retired. Shes not a pill pusher like he was. She listens and tries to find other solutions before putting you on pills.
I adore her. Among other health issues I suffer from multiple mental illnesses mainly anxiety and she is a godsend. She gives options and recommendations and then WE decide TOGETHER. She doesn't judge for breaking down crying or make you feel rushed. She remembers my triggers my family and little things about me. You don't feel like a pay check!
I attended Dr. Goodacre's office for depression. We had a lengthy conversation (during my crying) and she listened intently on what I had to say. She asked specific questions and she recommended anti-depressants, explaining the pros and cons of taking them. I'm not used to people showing me such interest and I'm so thankful that I have her as my doctor.
What I like most about Dr. Goodacre is that she really listens. She comes into the examination with an open mind and listens to my concerns or issues and she explains what she thinks is going on and what choices are available. Then, together she and I decide what is the best course of action for me. It is empowering as a patient . I feel cared for and respected by her. I will miss Dr. Opie, but I am glad he is handing off his practice to such a capable and diligent young doctor.
I am a new patient of Dr Goodacre and i can only say that i am so happy that my Dr. let her take over his practice. I find her very efficient in all of your complaints and if she does not know she will go to great length to get you an answer to your problem. my personal opinion is she is a very very good doctor coming forward. VERY HAPPY PATIENT
