Ratings for Dr. Alice Parker
Love Dr. Parker! I actually love the fact there are not any other staff members! I call, get an appointment through the call service and show up, no hassles, no repeating information etc. Dr. Parker knows me personally and my family. She takes as much time is needed and does appropriate testing. I trust, respect and really like my doctor!
I was once a patient of Dr. Parker, but I wasn't for very long. She prescribed the wrong medications and I too also found her to be dazed half the time. And like someone else mentioned on here she did not have a secretary. That to me is just plain weird. Glad I switched when I did and have never gone back to her since.
Please do not use this doctor. She lost my Mothers test results that proved she had cancer. She ended up finding them by accident two months later. She lost test results so many times. She has no working washroom, she has no secretary or assistant. She told my Mother she had a chest cold when in fact she had ovarian cancer that spread to her lungs. Please stay away from her.
I find Dr. Parker very knowledgeable when she is focused on what she is talking about, but most of the time she is very scattered and absent minded. She was supposed to let me know when my first ultrasound was to make sure my pregnancy was not ectopic. I got a call an hour before my appointment to let me know when it was...so I spent 3 hours trying to drink enough water to get a good image of the baby and doing other things because I was not advised of the appointment beforehand. Also, after she referred me to and OB she forgot to send any of my personal information to the OB! My mother has been seeing her for 20 years and runs into problem after problem with her. When she was pregnant Dr. Parker referred her to another family Dr. instead of an OB. So all in all, I'd say she gets the job done if you don't mind going over things again and again.
Dr. Parker is extremely absent minded. She never remmebers things and I had to get a test done twice because she did not do it right the first time and. She also changes her mind constantly as to what to prescribe and for how long, going back and forth, as if it was my decision and she was expecting direction from me on what to do - I am not a dotor and it does not make me feel confident to go to her for a problem.
Dr. Parker has been our family doctor since 1993 and I would trust my children to no other. My daughters have both had numerous medical issues and Dr. Parker has always been there for us 100%. She takes her time with you, explains things to you and does not use terms that you don't understand. The city of Guelph should relish in the fact that they have a great family doctor as they do in Dr. Alice Parker. My daughters and I are blessed to have her in our lives.
