Ratings for Dr. Donald Gibb
Is not helpful at all. Have to practically tie him down to get him to listen to your concerns. He is standing and writing a prescription to get rid of you before you are even done talking. Forget about having more than one thing to talk to him about. Plus his office has pictures of him and dead animals... so that really sucks and is disturbing for some individuals. The staff at the Bigelow Fowler West clinic are great. Only reason rating "staff" as one star is so that people will realize just how bad he is and to stay away.
Took him 2 years to diagnose my gallbladder issue. Had to go to er after being dismissed while having an attack. It took er 90 minutes to diagnose, run blood and get me a next day appointment with a surgeon. When I explained the writhing pain I was in he told me to take a Tylenol. Does not run appropriate tests nor does he care. After daphne left, some larger nurse took her place. She’s horrendous!! Unkind, cold and mean. I will be switching doctors.
I'm a senior. I've been seeing dr Gibb for 7 yrs. I believe he is dedicated and caring about me and my health. He slways takes the time to listen to my concerns and follows up. I know my well being is in the best of medical hands. I go to AZ for the winter and have gone to clinics there. Thankfully I come home to Dr Gibb.
He may be knowledgeable as a doctor, but his heavy workload is resulting in errors as he is not thorough and rushes through appointments. I received a wrong prescription once which thankfully the pharmacy flagged and another time I should have been sent directly to the hospital with a medical emergency that he missed. He needs to take more care and time with his patients - he could be putting someone's life at risk! Not acceptable!
Worst doctor I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. He is more interested in getting you out the door than hearing any concerns you may have. Is not thorough in any of his appointments, and will only either push drugs or surgery rather than doing any research to solve the route of the problem. He is the first doctor whom has laughed at me whilst giving a diagnosis. Absolutely unacceptable. Daphne is the only highlight of this office.
Excellent doctor. If anyone here truly knew the sheer workload he takes on, the level of sacrifice he has made for the city of Lethbridge, they would be ashamed. Dr Gibb works 14 hour days everyday. Plus weekends, plus hospital, plus maternity cover. His lunch everyday is alone in his beat-up truck on the way to the hospital. You could count on one hand how many days off a year he takes. An incredible person and when he retires, we'll need at least FOUR of the new wave, part-time, hand-held, docs to fill his boots.
I've been a patent for some years. It's true Dr Gibb tends to rush and carries a huge patient load. This could impact care but it has not in my case. He's supportive of my requests and shows concern. He's also allowed me to select my own specialist in calgary. I do have an ongoing concern with the
