Ratings for Dr. Stephanie Cote
Would not recommend this doctor at all. Recommend you go south to Markham or Toronto. Didn't do a single thing in helping diagnosis. 7 months later saw a dermatologist in Markham and within 5 minutes he knew exactly what it was. Took biopsy and results confirmed his notion. Dr. Cote only referred back to GP for blood work. Astonishing!
Arrive EARLY for a mid-day appointment only to be told that they an hour behind. 14 patients are sitting waiting. Even at 5 minutes (which is often all she gives you) each that is still 70 minutes. We are given the option of rescheduling and choose that to get back to work. THEN COMES THE BILL FOR LATE CANCELLATION! Are you kidding me? Don't book first thing in the morning as she is usually 20 minutes late. Wonder why they get behind?
The only good thing I could say about her is that she dresses well and her office decor is tastefully done. As a doctor she is rude, arrogant and should not be a doctor. We need more dermatologists in the area. She wouldn't have a practice in a city where there was competition.
I was apprehensive about seeing Dr Cote after reading the previous comments, but perhaps she has made some changes? The receptionist was exceedingly pleasant both in person and on the phone and was very accommodating when I had to reschedule my appointment on short notice. Dr Cote was also pleasant and professional. My appointment was at 10am and I was on my way home by 10:45 which to me is very reasonable. The office is quite nice with plenty of free parking. I would not hesitate to see Dr Cote again for my dermatological needs.
I saw Dr. Cote at her Collingwood Clinic for the first & LAST time Oct. 5, 2017. She was 40 minutes late, rude & arrogant. Went to her on recommendation of my family physician for yeast infection & she said I had psoriasis. If she was the last dermatologist on earth I wound't see her again!!
Initial meeting was good, seemed knowledgeable. Called to explain I had a meeting and would be half hour late for follow up appointment and was told I needed to give 48 hours notice, that she was booked up and couldn't be 1/2 hour late. Had to pay $50 to cancel. I think Dr. Cote would have been fine but her power tripping staff were terrible.
I think Dr.cote was great if it wasn't for her I wouldn't feel comfortable in my own skin. The problem I go there for kept coming back ( acne) and every time she allowed me to go back on the medication because that is what I wanted. I think she's very nice and I've been seeing her for 5 years now. Her staff is very nice too.
