Saw Dr. Bale about suspected fertility issues and was told we had to try for 2 years before he would refer us for testing. After a year and a half we convinced a doctor who was filling in for him to refer us for the needed testing and my husband was diagnosed infertile. Asked Dr. Bale for a referral to a fertility clinic in Vancouver and he said that it would be better if I just slept with one of my brother-in-laws and got pregnant that way instead. We never went to this doctor again.
This doctor is a complete and utter jerk! With no sensitivity for those going through very difficult times with family member. No patience, just came out and told me to start planning my husbands funeral because he wasn't going to make it. Well Dr. Jerk we proved you wrong!!! I give you as a doctor - 0 stars and as a human being I give you - 0 stars as there is nothing below 0 or else I would give that to you.
35 years of exemplary care. Had no ego about referring to a specialist on my request. Called to check on me when ill. Not patient with whining. Practical , knowledgeable, caring,. Would willingly answer questions and share his vast knowledge and experience when I worried about a family member. More interested in caring for his patients than billing for every second. Would spend all the time I needed. Abbotsford is fortunate to have human being of this calibre.
I went in to try to get a pelvic exam due to menstrual issues. His immediate reaction was to blame my form of birth control (IUD) without any investigation whatsoever. He gave me outright false information to scare me away from the IUD, saying it can cause infection, infertility, and tubal pregnancies (these things haven't been true of the device since the 1970s). He then sent me away with a starter pack of birth control and made further care, the pelvic exam I had wanted in the first place, contingent upon me starting that birth control so that he could remove my IUD (NOT what I wanted done). He did not listen to my needs and attempted to strong arm me into taking drugs that I didn't want by withholding care. He should not be practicing at all. AVOID him if you are a woman wanting reproductive care.
Micheal Bale's ego and personal opinions often get in the way of him providing competent medical services. If you are looking for someone to make decisions for you, he will do this. If you are looking for information to assist you as a comsumer of medical services...he is definitly not for you.
Can't understand some negative comments, Dr. Bale is the greatest. I am more than satisfied with his concerns and remedies. Maybe there should be a rate-the-patient forum. Some people take their anger out on the Doctor as if it was his fault. My vte for Dr. Bale, I am old now thanks to his expertise.....than you.
