Ratings for Dr. Margaret Adamson
Like many of the previous comments, Dr. Adamson has been my primary doctor for the last 30 years. She really knows her stuff, and she is down to earth and sensible. However, I can understand how some people think she doesn't have great bedside manner - she doesn't sugar coat her advice, and she's quite frank. She's a "no-nonsense" kind of person. She looks at the bigger picture, and as others have mentioned - she is not necessarily quick to pull out the prescription pad. For me, she has both offered advice of time&tlc to an injury, but when she deemed I had a serious concern - she has sent me for tests, scans and specialist referrals. She's also great about offering alternatives (if there are any) and advice where to find further info about your condition - so you can further help yourself. Not only have I received excellent care, but I've recently been able to get an appointment at really short notice. I really, really hope she never retires!
Dr Adamson has been our family doctor for close to 30 years. She has always taken excellent care of our whole family. She doesn't rush you, listens to your concerns, and gives excellent advise. When a specialist is needed, the staff jumps on it right away.
Is Dr Adamson writing her own reviews? Other than the fact it is easy to get an appointment, not sure why anyone would see this doctor. She's been practicing for 30 plus years I think and she still doesn't have a full practice. That is all that needs to be said. Terrible bedside manor, very reluctant to refer to a specialist .
I moved to the area mid 2009 and needed to find a family Dr. The staff here took me in with a warm welcome, being a patient with Rheumatoid Arthritis I've been followed by many Dr's and I must say the knowledge and patient care I recieve here is always above my expectations. I know I'm in good hands. Even for a quick walk in appointment they always do their best to fit me in. Dr. Adamson never runs behind like other clinics. I never was turned down for an appointment. And I'm always asked and reminded about my medication and even vitamins that are good for me. Other Dr's tend to push a quick solution/medication, but Dr. M Adamson takes the time to ask questions and may find a better healthier alternative. I like that she takes her job seriously and knows her stuff! The clinic is clean, bright, staff is friendly and I can't ask for a better family Dr.
Dr. A is very much like a personal trainer in that the experience depends greatly on the person being trained (treated). If you are a good patient (aren't opinionated on what you assume is wrong or what drugs you need to magically fix it and listen to her advice) you will get great results. If your problem is caused because you are overweight or you smoke...well, what do you expect her to say but STOP DOING IT. If you want idle chitchat, go get your hair done. But as a patient who has been with Dr. A for years, she keeps up to date with me and my family and often discusses her own experiences with her children to relate to mine. If you want an extremely effective medial practitioner, DR. A is for you. A doctor is more than happy to bill OHIP for repeat complainers, but the good ones like Dr. A prefer not to waste their time with these people. To the people posting negatively, you more than likely arent telling the full story or you are a poor patient.
I have been going to Dr. Adamson for the past 10 years and have no complaints. She is now my daughter's doctor as well. Most importantly, she will take me or my daughter on short notice due to illness or a minor emergency, so important with toddlers, and we don't have to endure the pain of sitting in a walk-in clinic for hours on end. Love her and her staff.
Dr. Adamson is a fantastic Dr. , she may be abrupt but she knows her stuff. Once she gets to know you more she opens a little as well. I find she is very hesitant to prescribe drugs flagrantly, don't go into her expecting to walk out with a prescription. She is very up to date in her knowledge. I can always get an appointment for my kids the same day, if I call saying the have a fever I can see her the same day, when does that happen now a days?
I have had the pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Adamson’s for approximately 30 years and I have always found her to be extremely caring, compassionate, insightful and professional, not to mention her extraordinary memory! She always recalls our last conversation, without peeking in the chart, and enquires about my elderly parents. I just find her genuine interest and compassion for my parents remarkable; she generously provides me with current resources and services in the community to put me at ease and be helpful. She is very knowledgeable, up-to-date on new medications and nutritional supplements, and always listens carefully to my concerns providing constructive comments. Most often, I am able to get an appointment on the same day that I place the call. Her assistants are also warm and friendly and they treat me with the utmost kindness and respect. It is always a pleasure visiting Dr. Adamson’s office and it is a privilege having her as my family physician.
