Ratings for Dr. Karen Valentine
Dr Valentine is NOT rude and abrupt. You need to cowboy up. I've been working with Dr V for two years now who's had to set me straight on accepting my illness and being a team player. I wasn't one. I am now. Her abruptness as to what I needed to realize that I'm not invincible has allowed me to accept things and keep on trucking.. She's brilliant and is always objective. I'm a CEO of a very large group of companies and believe me when I say I'm an opinionated handful. So if you think she's too abrupt maybe you need to get on the team like I did and accept that she's there for you not to fluff you up and make your emotional belongings stay nurtured. When the chips come down, she's there to save your life and keep you alive. Period. Embrace it and she'll be there for you. M Palmer
I was very happy with Dr Valentine. She was very knowledge and explained every well. But then she asked me if I wanted to transfer to a Doctor in Red Deer to be closer to where I lived. At first I said no, but the next time I saw her I said to transfer my file. After 9 months I checked to see what was happening and she had forgotten to do it. I waited another 4 months then tried to contact her but had some trouble with her secretary. When I finally talked to her secretary, she said the file was on her desk. I am no longer on her client list, and my file has not been transferred. What has she done with it? My Doctor is now going to refer me to another specialist as I seem to wiped out of the system by Dr Valentine. Very, very disappointed by Dr Valentine!!!
I am very fortunate to have met and been treated by Dr. Valentine and the team at the TBCC. I appreciate that she is serious and professional; she has also been very kind and compassionate. Under her care I always felt confident that I was being treated by the best... I'm now in remission.
Dr Valentine, in my book is nothing short of amazing. Like some reviews I know that she seems almost a little feared by the nurses, But if you ever took the time to talk to any of the nurses they'd tell you to that she is a wonderful Doctor! She treated me for over 3 years and I've moved province now so no longer under her Care. I shall miss her & her team, Cheryl & Stephanie. They are all Fantastic!
I've been seeing Dr. Valentine for 6 yrs now and I have been on the receiving end of her grumpyness and I have been on the receiving end of her hugs. She's an excellent, knowledgeable and competent doc and I will stay with her as long as I can stay alive.
I have had Dr. Valentine for 3 years and have found her very personable and friendly. Her job is particularly difficult, dealing with the type of cancers that she does. I find her dedicated, knowledgeable and kind. I do try to get in a joke for her, to lighten her day. If anyone finds her rude, maybe it has to do with the sadness of her work, or impatience on the client's side.
