Ratings for Dr. Evelin Dacker
She made a promise she could not keep, when I started seeing her I was 2 months pregnant, I told her that one determining factor in determining if I would stay with her is that I wanted her to be there during delivery and she had to be the one to deliver my first born if she was going to see me through prenatal, she assured me that she would be available no matter what. Day of delivery, she was out on vacation. Not a word mentioned on any of my weekly visits that things had changed. I went into an emergency c- section delivery was nothing as planned as on call dr knew nothing about my alternatives, options, preferences, etc. my husband who missed the opportunity to cut his daughters umbilical cord of which we found out later even with c section he should have had that opportunity. our experience could have been so different as the on call dr didn't know anything about us, what was important to us, preferences, options, etc. she could have been up front and Planned an another dr ahead of time to go over important things it may have been just another birth to her but to us it was everything. It was our one and only birth and the only thing I asked was a dr upfront and honest.
I have been seeing Dr. Dacker for 8 years. What I like most about her is that she has so much respect for her patients as individuals (this is really important to me, as I have known way too many pompous over-scheduled doctors!) Dr. Dacker is always down to earth, and sees her relationship with patients as a collaboration. She is very knowledgeable, but isn't afraid to say "I don't know" and look to resources if necessary. If I had to complain about something, it would just be that once I had to wait a long time at her old practice, but her new office is AWESOME with little patios on each room, peaceful decor, a naturopath on staff, etc. I haven't had any problems since she moved. I highly recommend her.
I've been a patient of Dr. Dacker's for 5+ years. She's the ONLY doctor I've ever had who I feel actually takes the time to listen to her patients. I've referred several friends to her and they are always thanking me. She truly cares about her patients and it shows. Her staff are all sweethearts and even her office has a calming effect. She's a GEM!
