Ratings for Dr. Margaret Hurst
I have never seen this doctor in a bad mood, she was never rude to myself or my children. I have never witness her being rude to you colleagues. I have been to her practice in New Brunswick Canada and my son was in her care. Always been patient and very kind to us. She always explained why my son had to change either meds or the doses of meds. She never treated anyone like garbage in front of us. If I could have my son see her again, I would.
Only talks politely to those she likes, the rest get sarcasam, that's if your lucky to get her in a good mood, which swings several times in the run of a day! Bullies her staff, ever wonder why there's such a quick turn-a-round with receptionists and testers? She has no people skills. It's a shame Moncton has to lose yet another doctor but, in this case, don't let the door hit you on your way out!! If only she was as good as she thinks she is.
We have been seeing this Dr. for 3 years now and this has been our experience. My daughter starting feeing ill in November 2006. We had seen 4 other Drs before Dr. Hurst. Within a month my daughter's weight had fallen to 88lbs. The others were telling me my daughter had anorexia but I knew this was not the case. We saw Dr. Hurst for the first time on Dec 6/2006. Dr. Hurst arranged an emergency MRI on December 7, 2006th. My daughter had a 9cm brain tumor. Pathology determined the tumor to be glioblastoma. Dr. Hurst has called me from her home at night and on weekends just to see how we were doing. She taught me how to understand my daughter's blood counts and how to calculate her ANC. She taught me how to give her neupogen shots. She looked all over the world for a suitable treatment for my daughter and thanks to her my daughter is still here today. I know she has a heart because she has cried infront of us. I cannot say enough about this Dr.
This doctor is an insecure bully who needs to put others down to make herself feel important. She is rude to everyone: patients, families, staff and colleagues. She can put on a charming facade when she wants something but she shows no genuine warmth for her patients. I am surprised that people are still seeking her services but I guess when you have an ADHD child as I do, you try whatever you can. I would advise people to look for someone else. Her advice is not helpful and her disrespect for everyone is hard to take.
this is the worst doctor in Moncton, bar none. Why are people still going is beyond me....but ignore her friends that write good messages and listen to all the noise about her lack of compassion, attention and bedside manners.....do yourself a favor and ask for someone else. She doesn't deserve our medicare dollars.
I have had my child to this doctor for the last few years and found her to be moody, rude, intimidating and unprofessional at times but I kept going b/c I felt that she knew what she was doing and wanted my child to have the best medical care. Recently we had an appointment with her for a "routine" ADHD test. There was a mix up with the Pharmacie that we use and they were saying that we were not filling the perscriptions for my child for @ 6 months. I told them that this was false but regardless this didn't potray me as a parent in a very good light. The whole office assumed to believe something that was not true. Needlesstosay, the pharmacie was filing the perscriptions under an old perscription # (old file #). I had the pharmacie fax the mistake to the doctor. If this can happen to me then rest assure that this can happen to you. I do not expect appologies from either the doc or the pharmacie, but I will say this....I WILL NOT BE BACK TO THIS DOC FOR ANY REASON. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!
I've been seeing Dr. Hurst for 3 years now...and I think she is fabulous. Very caring and loving. My boys Ben & Sam adore her. And kids know best...She is very personal with us and I can feel she cares. I don't like the circumstances of how we met but I am glad our paths crossed.
Starting off with a good comment, she knows her stuff but that's all I can say good about her. Otherwise, her patients don't know her behind closed doors they only see her either in a good mood or a bad one. Well her staff saw her regularly in a bad mood, she is mentally and verbally abusive to her staff on a regular basis. The ones that seen the good side of her caught her on a good day. She is very smart when it comes to knowing her stuff but she is a mean person with no respect for anyone. I really don't want to stoop to her level so saying anymore would be wrong. So to the patients that have her and think she's great, good luck and hopefully you don't catch her on one of those bad days.
She is a great doctor, and a wonderful person with children. I think the people who write about her in a negative way are most likely the same people that would say the Santa Claus is a child predator. People should take a long look at themselves before throwing stones.
