Ratings for Dr. Brian Brodie
Doctor Brodie appears to be very rarely in BC and it seems to spend very little time attending to patients here. He is my wife's doctor and while he is pleasant to deal with, he has very rarely offered treatments of any significant value, my wife is awaiting a colonoscopy, supposedly ordered by her doctor, but when I called the specialist, to whom the referral had supposedly been sent, I was advised that they had no record of said referral. It seems par for course.
I saw this doctor at the Stevenson walk in clinic and he was very caring. I have had ongoing abdominal pain for a couple of months now and have gone through several tests and have an ultrasound tomorrow. I went in today for help with the pain. He suggested a few different things it could be. He was very caring and compassionate and actually listens to concerns which even my family doctor does not do.
I have been with Dr brodie for 20 years and now that I'm an adult and need check ups I realize how frustrating it is to get an appointment. Whether it's no one answering the phone (they need more staff, the last time i went in it was one lady doing EVERYTHING) or he is away on holiday with no back up doctor to take his place while he is away. When you go in, it's a very short visit.. I would say no longer than 2 to 5 minutes. It is unfortunate to say, but I will be looking for a new doctor.
Our family has been with Dr. Brodie for many years, his staff could be abrupt at times, but he now has a new girl on the desk, and she is friendly and helpful, we have never had a problem with Dr. Brodie, he listens, he advises, and he sends us to sp ecialists if needed.
Dr Brodie was my doctor for several years and I have ended up leaving him and his staff last year and the move has been so much better. After having the frustration of trying to get someone to answer the phone and then deal with his rude, and inefficient staff seeing Dr Brodie was a relief. He was easy to communicate with but I found that I never got many solutions to my aches and pains. I am so much better off with my new doctor.
Outstanding Doctor. I've known him for well over a decade--knowledgeable, courteous, and to the point. There appear to be a few negative comments from some users here associated with his name, but these are understandable since he is a no-nonsense physician and tells it like it is--traits that won't endear him to those who don't like to accept hard advice. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat, but he is so popular that it is nearly impossible to see him at times!
Dr.Brodie has belittled me, pretty much telling me I don't know my own body. Being pregnant and younger, he treats me like I don't know anything. For my ultrasound appointment he sent me to a clinic that refused to tell me the gender of my baby, and sent back 'inconclusive' results. He has dismissed any concerns I have had, and has sabotaged my family medically. My step mom is on too much lithium for depression SHE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE, and he said to my dad he 'can't justify the cost of x-rays' when my father clearly has many broken bones, in very vital places. He's ONLY concerned about money, and he should've retired a LONG time ago.
