Ratings for Dr. Bevin Hamlet
I took my daughter, who has chronic endometriosis and persistent bursting cysts, to HRH emergency recently, in extreme pain and discomfort. I guess we drew the short straw and got this doctor. He was dismissive and disrespectful. She was asked where her pain was, on a scale of 1-10 and she said, 10. He told us that only women who are delivering babies ever get pain to that extent. He was argumentative and patronizing. How would he, as a man, ever know how much pain a woman is in, when experiencing this kind of pain. We pushed for a pelvic ultrasound, that then clearly showed the cysts and associated hemoraging, that DOES cause this kind of pain. He said that he was reluctant to give her morphine as the Government was "coming down" on doctors that were prescribing it.. He reluctantly worked with us and we finally got her stabilized 10 hours later!! Thankfully, he was swapped out by another doctor, who understood our situation and told us to always come back if this flare up ever happened again. A completely awful experience with this doctor, who had zero empathy and belittled us all the way through the experience.
To further my comment below from aug 11 I would like to add that I'm completely off the anxiety pills Dr. B. Hamlet was giving me and have never felt better. For years I felt drugged and foggy in my head now that I'm off and getting the proper help I need from a doctor who cared enough to send me for tests and to a specialist, I've never felt better!
He was my doctor for 25 years but the last 5 + years he's been awful. Chalked my problems up to Stress and anxiety, gave me pills I didn't need. Got a second opinion and turns out to be ovarian cysts that i need surgery for. For the last 2-3 years he told me my problems were stress/anxiety, never sent me for a test and when i asked for a referral to a specialist he told me he couldn't do that unless i had a problem. His receptionist looks and acts like she rather be getting her eyes gouged out than to be at work answering phones and receiving patients - a total miserable person and not just on a "bad day" I have seen and experienced her rudeness and lack of compassion for years at every visit or phone call to book an apt. This is not just my experience but the experience with other family members and also friends & neighbours that he is/was their family doctor. If the passion for medicine isn't there anymore he should retire and stop messing with people's lives and health!!
Dr. Hamlet has been my family doctor for a couple years now and he is great, I can talk to him about anything always very helpful when other. I completly agree with the previous post he is a very busy man which does cause him to be late alot but in no way does that make him a bad doctor. As for his staff they are both lovley always helpful.
Can't get them to answer the phone! I have been a patient for over ten years and I must say that the service has been getting worse. The secretary " the new one " sucks! She doesn't want to be there and doesn't want to work...always angry or something...just a miserable person I think.
