Ratings for Dr. Antionette Bekker
Dr. Bekker is a great blend of humanism and professionalism. She is compassionate and empathetic, but very honest and straightforward. She took me from darkness to light. She is very knowledgeable, yet not pontificating. She takes detailed and careful notes and listens. She makes careful use of time, and is always prepared and has carefully reviewed previous notes prior to appointment. She is meticulous about time. Her staff, however, could be more polished and friendly.
Dr. Bekker saved me. She was my first and only psychiatrist, and I am so grateful. She got me out of a dark time in my life that I do not think I would have survived. She is funny, compassionate, understanding but will be honest and frank, when needed. One of the best doctors (GP or specialist) I have ever had.
Easy as pie to get pretty much what ever you want outta her. One appointment and you've got yourself whatever prescription you want. Dont forget to do your research tho! She'll believe pre-much anything if you cry a lil. I managed to get a bunch of "samples" to try, havent seen her since and no one seems to mind.
I used to think that she was great. But after have read my medical files, I realizad that she doesn't know her profession. She assumes that I have to tell her everything! When I didn't trust on her enough... She doesn't understand about mental illnesses. I was very sick when I first met her. She didn't realized that I had a mental illness besides the PTSD, depression, anxiety. She had meny expectations of me. Trust is gained with time, not just because she had a degree I was supossed to tell all my life. She wasn't a good listener since she misunderstood all what I told her.
She's great! I love her. She listens, understand,and comprehend patients. She and her husband are the best! in Medicine Hat. She spends time to listen,to talk to patients. She's so sweet,lovely,professional,compassionate,she treats people as equal,she's a very classy woman. The money that she makes out of her job is really well earned. She works hard. Sadly, someone decided at the hospital that she wouldn't be my psychiatrist anymore... She's the best!
