Ratings for Dr. Eleanor Melissa Forbes
Dr Forbes is easily one of the most caring, genuine, down to earth professionals I have ever met. In no way is she "rude" or "cocky".. She has been my doctor for approximately 5 years and has always been so patient and understanding. I'm very grateful for her l!
Dr. Forbes has been my doctor for the past 5 years. When I needed surgery but the wait list was almost 1 year, she did some digging and found a surgeon that could take care of me in less than 2 mos. She even sent me for physio to relieve the pain pre-surgery. Dr. Forbes has routinely referred me to the very best specialists in their field when warranted. She takes my complaints seriously and always, without exception, treats me with respect and dignity. I have had 3 other physicians tell me how lucky I was to have her as my primary care physician, high praise indeed from her peers.
I've looked at the other comments just to see if it was just me that got the rudeness vibe from Dr. Forbes. I've seen her talk with other patients while I was at the clinic and she seemed genuinely friendly. But both times I took my Dad for his appointment, she was very condescending with me, and made me feel very uncomfortable. I am my Dad's power of attorney, and when I asked her some questions, she was very abrupt and rude with me......almost like she was very impatient with me. I was trying to explain something to her and she just looked at me and gave a heavy sigh...what was that all about? I
Dr. Forbes is our family doctor. When we moved to the area, we signed onto her practice. The new health center is well staffed and even when we cannot get an appointment with Dr. Forbes, they will get us in with someone else. There is hardly a wait time if any. (such a difference from Nova Scotia where we lived prior). She is knowledgeable and picked up where our prior physicians left off. So far we are very happy with her and the practice in Almonte.
I really like Dr. Melissa Forbes. She has a great bed-side manner. After seeing my kids only once, on the second visit she remembered them and what was talked about without even reviewing the chart. My kids really like her too. She is also very easy to talk to. I'm really glad that I see her now.
