Ratings for Dr. Phillip Walter
My biggest complaint with Dr. Phillip is he will not give you a physical unless you have been a patient for one year. I have moved from Ontario six months ago and I was told I would have to wait another year for any tests. When I asked if this was something typical in B.C they said no just Dr. Walter. I guess he knows best. I'll have to look for another Doctor or go to emergency.
I spent years struggling to find a doctor who would listen to me and help me without handing out prescriptions. He has a lot of knowledge ithn mental health and sent me to a great psychiatrist and has helped me through health issues as well! Amazing doctor!
the first time I met him he seemed pleasant enough but the few time after that he had terrible bedside manners if finding a dr who truly cares and shows some empathy and knowledge this is not the dr for you. I feel so strongly compelled to tell others as I have never been treated so poorly when I cried over medical issues in my life. i work in the healthcare industry myself his lack of empathy is a disgrace shame on him .
My experience w/ Dr. Phil is nothing but positive. He's the only physician who has ever listened, w/ stethoscope in hand, for signs of pericardial effusion (fluid around the heart), a possible side effect of the only drug that's ever worked, for my b.p. He also pays careful attention to what I have to say, & as if we have all the time in the world! ..As far as I can see, he certainly appears to know his stuff; whereas - no one else (in the medical business) seems to care, whatsoever.
The other doctors at the clinic are great... But him. Anytime I was seen by him he rushes you. He also misdiagnosed me for something by far what it actually was including giving me meds for it.. found out day later by going to emergency, I should have tried to sue him
I am writing on behalf of a former client who had visited Dr Walters after her longtime GP had retired. After a short consult he informed he could not be her Dr because of the meds her former had prescribed for fibromyalgia. I too am taking the same meds for my fibromyalgia and am doing well although I have a very knowledgable and realistic Dr. After reading the many negative comments about Dr Walters it's amazing he makes 500,00 per year... Must be the terrible shortage of GP's
After a completely rude experience with Dr. Jacques West of Medimax Health Centres Langley, I was looking for a new family Doctor. I have ongoing issues after getting hit by a car and my file is with about 5 different medical clinics/hospitals. As an accepted patient, I have had no issues with him. He's soft spoken, and listens to what is going on, then makes a recommendation, for me natural vitamins and exercises - not prescriptions like every other GP/Walk-in Dr. has. He has been on time, and takes the time to hear me out and I'm surprised there are so many reviews here that show he doesn't care. I don't get that at all and I'm a disgruntled 28 yr old male who more often than not needs an attitude adjustment..
