Dr. Jennifer Dignam's Ratings
Dr. Dignam has been our family doctor for 3 years and we couldn't be happier. She is very caring and takes the time to answer all our questions. She has been very knowledgeable. She has diagnosed conditions missed by our previous doctor, and she has made prompt referrals. We feel lucky to have Dr. Dignam as our family doctor.
I have had similar issues with Dr.D as I find her less knowledgeable and dismissive of symptoms. She googles a condition in front of you and takes a guess on your diagnosis. She uses words like guess and I'm not sure which in not very reassuring. She is very gentle, approachable and friendly and deals with my children very well. when it comes to me I wish I had another more confident GP.
Dr. Dignam is a gem! My previous family doctor was a callous, prescription pusher. Dr. Dignam is highly knowledgeable, and extremely friendly. She has perfect bedside manner. She is easy to talk to and doesn't rush you out the door. She is wonderful with my kids. She does not hesitate to make appropriate referrals and isn't a pill-pusher.
I've found it rare to find a family physician who somehow walks the fine line between being efficient/knowledgeable while also being personable and taking the time to connect with you as a person. Dr Dignam is a rarity in this field. She's extremely intuitive, finding previously undiagnosed minor conditions within my family while also connecting with us meaningfully and personally on each visit.
I think the line family doctors walk between seeing so many people per day, while also trying not to treat patients as numbers, must be difficult at times. Jennifer Dignam has somehow struck that key balance between the two and you would count yourself lucky to be under her care.
I found it interesting to read the other comments and I am guessing none of these people see Dr. Dignam for health issues. I started seeing her after my previous doctor who was amazing retired and I have been incredibly disappointed. Dr. Dignam is polite, sure, but she does not order tests when needed. Since I have a history with my condition you would think she would follow this when I present with issues, but she does not and often dismisses my concerns. I have also had a difficult time getting referrals from her, instead she insists waiting 6 months and rechecking which at times is unreasonable. While I doubt she is the worst doctor in the world she is not very knowledgeable about my condition (which is very common) and always has to "check with another doctor". I also find she is very dismissive of my concerns, but overly cautious when it comes to my children. Also, no one in our family likes her nurses, they're fake, and inconsiderate, you can also hear them talking about you behind the doors. While I might keep my kids with her because she's quiet, I am in the process of finding myself a new doctor.
