Ratings for Dr. Claire Jaeger
I have been seeing Dr. Jaeger for almost two decades. She is a warm person, a wonderful physician, and very pro-active when attending to her patient's needs. If there is a health concern that she cannot diagnose, she will requisition tests to rule out certain conditions. Her wait times have always been long, so be sure to bring reading material and expect to wait at least one hour or more. She does apologize for the wait, but could this be to over-booking? A rather disappointing new development is that it takes weeks to get an appointment with her. I am not sure if this is due to overbooking or what, but it is extremely frustrating. Nevertheless, she is such a great doctor that I will continue to see her.
Dr. Jaeger has the WORST receptionists- always! Especially her most current one; I have never met a more rude human being! Not to mention Dr. Jaeger always falls behind (30-45min), and allows only two questions per visit because she tries to see and exceedingly large amount of patients in one day$$$$. I would suggest going elsewhere for your sanity!
Been a patient of hers for 10 years. She is very knowledgeable and friendly, very pro active with treatment, not a wait and see doctor, your issues and concerns get dealt with. The staff is better then they used to be , not a big fan of her nurse but she is okay. Wait times are sometimes longer then usual but well worth waiting for.
Dr. Jaeger is a wonderful doctor who cares about her patients. She is genuine, and is very knowledgeable in her field. I would recommend her to anyone. It can be difficult to get appointments but this is reflective of any busy practice in Winnipeg it would seem.
Her staff has improved and she's always willing to listen and help her patients with their issues in any way she can. The only issue is punctuality; only once in the years I've seen her have I been in the examination room on time. I usually have to wait about 30-45 minutes after my set appointment time to see her.
Honestly her staff and the reception staff at that clinic are horrible - I have never met ruder people. In fact I sometimes I put off calling for an appt because of the attitudes here. When I do call I am often encouraged to go to a Walkin clinic and when I finally get an appt I am greeted by a sign that says I can only discuss 2 items and have to come back - well if I can't ever get an appt in the first place how am I going to come back?? Then when Dr Jaeger comes in she is so busy watching the clock and rushing it doesn't really encourage me that she has my best interests at the front of mind nor do I think sometimes she is even listening. I understand we don't have enough doctors and they are busy but they chose to go into this profession and should want to help people ... They also get paid a great deal of money to take care of people ... Would hate to see how they would feel if someone were treating their loved ones that same way. They should also not want to hire staff that care a less of how they treat people as it's the first impression of their care, it's too bad that people continue to go just because there are no other options, wouldn't be how I wanted my professional reputation to be.
I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Jaeger. She is thorough, compassionate, knowledgeable and takes your concerns seriously. I have been a patient of hers for around 10 years and feel fortunate that she is my doctor! If you're concerned about punctuality try to get an appointment first thing in the morning as there is no wait.
Dr Jaeger now has staff that is cordial and friendly. That wasn't necessarily the case in the past. I appreciate that as this is the first contact we usually have with doctors. Dr. jaeger is not only a compassionate doctor who is very knowledgeable, She is concerned about my wellbeing and acts accordingly. Sometimes there are waits but I appreciate that she is giving the same care to others and that is why sometimes you have to wait for a period of time to get in. This is by far much better than waiting in a clinic to see a different doctor each time of which you have no ongoing relationship with. I truly appreciate Dr. Jaeger for all the hard work and good care she administers.
