Ratings for Dr. Jane Robertson
Dr Jane is the most professional and understanding psychiatrist I have seen. She is there when I need her and she often goes above and beyond the call when caring for clients. Yes she does often take on the role as Psychiatrist and psychologist as the case dictates. Some times prescribing medication is not enough and I for one appreciate her advice on mentoring.
Dr Jane is incredibly empathetic and works collaboratively with you and anyone else in your treatment team to achieve solutions that you are happy with. When she is on leave or out of hours she will respond to a page and call you to discuss any urgent matter including faciliting hospital admission over Christmas (recent experience). Very professional and just a lovely person.
Someone (probably the doctor herself ) erased an entry I put in a couple of years ago. As a logged-in user it will probably be harder for her to remove this time. From memory I wrote that I felt her skills were closer to that of counselling psychologist than psychiatrist and I felt that she lacked the confidence to admit me to a hospital when I needed it. She may not be your person if your severe symptoms require hospitalization. Also I said that the waiting room is cramped and overcrowded servicing many psychiatrists with everyone facing each other and staring each other down, also the reception staff were rude and couldn't care less. It is a shame when doctors try to get postings deleted that are just put there to help other patients/prospective patients find their way to the right doctor for them.
Jane is both personable and sympathetic. Dr Jane has been the only therapist to identify my condition and provide appropriate therapy which has enabled control of my condition and put in place a plan for ongoing management. She has had an extremely positive impact on my life. I could not have got to where I am without her.
I have to differ from the second review. The comments about the waiting rooms are ridiculous. I have never sat in the waiting room with more than one other person. The staff have not once rolled their eyes as I approached, neither literally nor figuratively. I have seen Jane, maybe 50 times, (not her fault she hasn't cured me I'm a ****ing nutcase) but I have never felt like a guinea pig, or part of her training. Jane has managed my admission to hospital twice and I am happy to say it has been over a year since my last visit. Admittedly I don't have the vast insight of reviewer #2 as I am basing my review on 2 years of treatment, not one visit. I couldn't recommend anyone more emphatically than I recommend Jane.
