Ratings for Dr. Richard Taumoepeau
Took my 4yr old for a follow up but previous doc wasn't there so got Dr Richard. My son had a terrible wheezing cough and had to use an asthma puffer as he was having trouble breathing. this was advised by a previous doctor along with Claratyne for kids and a nose spray. Dr Richard on the follow up basically told me to not use anything as this could ruin his health in the future. He's a kid and things will pass on their own. Anyone with hayfever and asthma knows it doesn't just go away on it's own. Was really disappointed in him, never had a doc like this. And he also questioned why i needed to take Carers Leave.
This has to be the worst doctor I have ever seen. I went to get some contraceptive advice and ended up leaving in tears. He explained that I obviously had mental health issues because if I didn't want a child it meant that my relationship was bad and I didn't recognize it. He shared with me his families issues with erectile dysfunction. He told me to quit studying at university and find a job more suited to me; something in retail. He also trivialized my situation when I became upset saying I need to watch what is happening in Afghanistan on TV because my life is easy.
This doctor is awful, I had a horrible rash oon my chest and he insisted it was from shaving (I ak female and cam assure you I do not shave my chest!!) When I told him this wasnt the case he got angry and was awfully rude, I asked for some painkillers or a cream and he told me I didnt need any thing because there is nothing u can do for shaving rash!
I had to beg this doctor for a blood test, which later showed that I had glandula fever and anemia, because he suggested I was inventing my symptoms to get out of uni & work. He went on to lecture me for having intercourse before marriage, told me I was probably pregnant and seemed mad when I insisted I wasn't. Out of the blue, he told me I probably didn't have AIDS, because STDs always have symptoms (pretty sure that's not true). He made a glib comment about how women don't think properly about their choices when they drink - I had no idea why the consultation had gone that way and by then I was so offended and humiliated that I just asked for the pathology request and left crying. He is the reason people are scared of doctors!
Dr. Taumoepeau is terrible. A gruff, rude, arrogant and offensive man with no professional courtesy. Why did I have to repeat everything twice? It was like he just didn't want to deal with the problems! After I explained my major problem to him and asked for him to help he point blank refused, twice! Each time getting more angry. I can only agree that the other negative comments posted. This man only made me feel worse. I couldn't have any confidence in such a person looking after my health, even if I was dying. I will not go back. I will keep well away from this jerk.
