Ratings for Dr. Lorne Hurst
I can not say a bad thing about my experience with Dr. Hurst. I had a biopsy done, in an out very quickly. He was very professional and walked me thru the process start to finish. He made me feel very comfortable. I did not experience any discomfort what so ever. He was great!!
I 2 was referred to Hurst by my family practitioner. Appointment was set up for me by them. I went at the scheduled time. I have never been treated so rudely and unprofessionally in all my 71 years. Complained the entire time how i was making him miss his lunch , was rude and rough. Jammed a swab in my sore that was already painful. No explanations just bitched the entire 10 minutes i was in there about his lunch. I hope he choked on it. Wouldnt recommend him ro see a pet hes so rude.
In my opinion, Dr. Hurst is an excellent physician and diagnostician! It seemed when when other specialists would pop into to say what the condition was not, Dr. Hurst was determined treat my condition correctly and FOLLOW-UP......Thank you Dr. Hurst. He was the doctor who found the types of specific infections that were causing so much difficulty. He is extremely attentive to all the follow-up plans of the other medical professionals.
I had been seeing Dr Hurst for about five years until it came to an abrupt halt. My last appointment ended with dr hurst showing me the door after I asked him for a sample medication that he had offered to me on prior appointment. I am not one to impose on anyone and for him to snap at me, to tell me that he doesn’t run a pharmacy, for him to open the door availing myself to the patients waiting for his services... I was shocked, embarresed, and felt deeply betrayed. This was a long time ago and my heart is pounding right now as I write this review.
I do not even know how to describe the visit. There are not adequate words to relay the rudeness and complete lack of empathy towards a patient. Talked so fast and demanded answers just as prompt to the three or so questions he asked. One of which was why my physician referred me to him and why I was being investigated for a certain type of illness. I wouldn’t know about his knowledge, when he wasn’t being abrupt with me, he spent the entirety of the two minute visit talking clinic to the two interns with him. Seemed to have no interest in my issue as I wasn’t presenting as he assumed I would. Made me feel like I was wasting his time. I’m sorry, I never asked to see him so don’t take it out on me. I’m sorry the lesion I had for 5 months finally healed before I could see him. I’m sorry I didn’t present to him as needing his care as much as my doctor believed I did. I don’t think this man is capable of understanding how damaging to some people his unkindness is. I’m not an idiot, I work in the health industry and would never dream of treating workers or clients the way he does. Epic failure in professionalism. I don’t ever rate physicians but this experience was like nothing I had ever had to endure before. I would not see him again.
Was extremely rude, and almost pushed me out the door. He seems upset the he had not received the referral letter from my family dr., and that I had received an appt. so quickly when he said some people in his waiting room had to wait 6-7 months. Neither of these circumstances were within my control, so I did not deserve to be treated with such disrespect. He barely looked at my skin problems, and dismissed them as age related. I will never go back to see such an unpleasant, and disrespectful doctor.
