Ratings for Dr. Marion Baechler
I have had Dr. Baechler as a GP for over a year now. She is a fantastic doctor. Extremely knowledgeable, kind, and supportive. If she does not have an answer, she does the research and has done follow-ups via phone (which is great because I don't live in Huntsville). Moreover, the staff at her office are wonderful. Friendly and always go above and beyond the call of duty to support my medical requirements.
We had no choice but to see her because our doctor retired and she took over the practice. She is rude, does not make eye contact and makes you feel like you are wasting her time. Speaking to other health professional they also noted how rude she is to patients in the emergency department. We feel that we now have to find out when we call if she is working and if so decide to wait to see the other doctor another day or go to emergency.
Marion Baechler was doing a maternity leave for our GP in 2010. I got an x-ray in June which revealed densities all over my lungs. She neglected to inform me of the condition and when I went for an unrelated appt in Oct., I asked her about the x-ray back in June and her jaw nearly hit the keyboard on her computer, where all doctors seem to sit now in appointments, not in front of their patients. I asked her what it might be. Her first and only answer was "probably lung cancer". I went from feeling fine to not even knowing how I actually drove home. The shock of such an answer after 4 months of neglect was astounding. After I drove 20 kms home there was a message telling me to come right back for a CT scan. She never apologised. They tokenly fired the receptionist which wasn't her fault for not being informed and it was very obvious to me and my husband that the patient never comes first any more.Medical practice seems geared to covering the doctor with their standards and procedures.
