Dr. Gwen took extremely good care of my Mom, who suffered with cancer and when Mom passed I asked her to be my personal doctor because I liked her great "bed side manner" :0)

WOW!!!! There is so much say about this woman. Having read all the other comments, I see that many, many, many other people have experienced the same despicable "treatment" from this "DOCTOR". There is a lot I have to say but I will just share the most recent encounter. I went to see her because I'd had a car accident, she didn't request any x-rays or any other type of testing for that matter, suggesting Epsom salts would do the trick. There were a few other appointments after that which did not go well at all because she discovered I had not returned to work and she felt that I should have returned to work immediately. When an x-ray was done on July 22/15, it found that my C-1 & C-2 vertebrae had shifted 4-5 mm as a result of the accident, there were other findings, but this was the scariest, yet she still insisted that I was fine and that "pain was my body's way of telling me to move". She even told me to my fact that I would go back to work when I received my settlement from the accident, she is a complete idiot. I have met many people in my life but never have I encountered a doctor that is so ignorant, judgmental, unprofessional and reckless with people's lives. I also believe she should lose her license, this woman should not be allowed to treat animals let alone humans.

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!

Time to find another doctor.....seems she has no or very little compassion.....|I don't go to the doctor often so when I do, I expect a proper medical advice not your personal opinion.

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 !

She told me my issues were an excuse and did not exist. She told me to get my act together and that she could not help me. It was an Awful experience, I left the office in tears.

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.
