Dr. Gwen Geraldine Bruce-Houle's Ratings
I saw other doctors at her clinic for my depression who were very helpful. When she came back from vacation, she prescribed me a self-help book and gave me the impression that she didn't approve of my choice to be on SSRIs. She also made me feel ridiculous for having suicidal thoughts. She was dismissive and I don't think she believes depression is a real thing.
I was really disappointed with her. I'd never had a problem with her before this, and I'm now looking for a new doctor, which is hard to do in this small city. I don't understand why Townsite doesn't allow patients to see a different doctor in the same office, that's ridiculous.
Dr. Bruce-Houle is a fantastic doctor! She's well educated and seems to always get it right. She won't push drugs when unnecessary but gives them when they are. I don't feel that she rushes appointments so the fact that she's late sometimes is fine with me!
Dr. Bruce-Houle has been my physician for several years and I'm surprised to read about some people's experience with her. I have always found her to be knowledgable, informative, patient, and caring. Not a witch at all !
I can understand some people who find this doctor kind of intolerant of some sicknesses! She was a Pharmasist by Trade, and switched to take her doctrine later! She knows her chemistry! So if you are a prescription sort of person for what ails you, you have gone to the wrong doctor.. \I for one like her no nonsence attitude to some stuff,, Great for me!!! When i did need to see a specialist,, she was right on the ball!!
She has no knowledge of metal health issues and has a very negatively biased outlook on people suffering from them. My advice, i only used her for a referral to a psychiatrist and don't take no for an answer when trying.
I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Bruce-Houle for my family of 5 and I told her as much at a recent visit. She is very knowledgeable and warm. She welcomes my questions and treats me with respect. I am puzzled by some of the negative comments on here because my entire family's experience has been positive and we have been seeing her for a few years now. I really appreciate that she doesn't push prescriptions and is willing to discuss different treatment options. My husband and I are in our late 30s and our children are aged 17, 11 and 5. I trust Dr. Bruce Houle with my family's whole health: I feel like we are in such good hands when I go to see her. Additionally, her office is clean and welcoming and we typically only sit for a few minutes in the waiting room. I highly recommend Dr. Bruce-Houle.
Dr. Gwen is perhaps the best doctor I have ever seen. I love her approach. It is practical, straight forward and common sense. All questions are answered honestly. Every consult with others she has recommended has been timely and handled beautifully. Absolutely love her.
The Worst Doctor I've ever seen. She was ride unpurfectional and just plain mean. She swore at me and gave me homework to do and if not I couldn't see her again, and I walked out crying.... Never seeing the mean witch, and i recomened her to no one!!!!
