Ratings for Dr. Anthony French
I have met with Dr. French twice since my family doctor decided to go into private practice. He showed me nothing but respect and honesty. Two things I look for in a doctor. He takes the time to explain what is going on and what to do to fix it. After reading the reviews below, I feel like I met a completely different person.
As I was waiting in a room for Dr. French, I could hear him talking to two other patients, respecitvely, loudly. I heard their names, medical concerns, and a lot of other private information being shouted around. When he entered my room I delibreately kept my voice low and it was like talking to a child who was trying to get you to react with anger. On top of it all, after a mere 10 seconds, he told me to take my shirt off (not necessary). No gown offered, no screen, no privacy. I declined. That's got to be illegal, right? How is it possible that he's still working?
I went to see Dr French at Denman Medical Clinic for an RX. When I asked him to order generic he yelled at me for speaking while he was writing and told me he wouldn't be able to write the RX if I spoke. They faxed it to the pharmacy and when I went to pick it up it was not the less expensive generic. The pharmacy made the 3 attempts to get him to send in the correct RX but he got it wrong each time. They called me and asked if I wanted them to try again and I said not I'd go see him. When I did he yelled at me some more because the pharmacy called him so many times. I explained that I wanted generic and wrote out another RX but would not give me the originally ordered multiple refills saving me paying for multiple dispensing fees. It was a complete waste of time and I had to go see another Dr. The I saw this review page and realized he has nothing but mostly complaints here about him over nearly a decade for yelling and rudeness as well as incompetence. I thought it was me but it really is him. Don't waste your time with this guy. He should be shut down.
I went to the clinic to get a boil looked at. Dr French looked at it for less than a second and diagnosed me with Hsv2. I refused to take his diagnosis seriously until I could get a second opinion from another doctor. So I made another appointment with a different doctor and he said that was not a correct diagnosis. I'm my opinion Dr French is not a doctor I would recommend seeing. He misdiagnosed and created a fear in me that wasn't needed.
Went in and the Doctor would not give me more than two minutes to state my symptoms. He said, verbatim, "you can only tell me about one of your health concerns, even if it only takes one minute". I peacefully declined his services and left.
Dr Anthony French is absolutely terrible. He works on Denman Medical Clinic. I've never experienced AWFUL dr never ever! He yelled, belittle, denied me, and completely looks down WOMEN. I was very shocked this experience, I was in tears after I left the clinic. He didn't even examine, but he gave me a prescription. He didn't even explain what it is until I asked him. How did he know my situation on my body without exams? He is NOT a doctor. I really assume he wants to hide his low ability, so he is very aggressive to patients. I don't think he enjoy his work, but he thinks he is god. I don't trust him at all, so I teared the prescription. He just complained to me why I came to him not family doctor. He said he wants to see not patients for walkin, only patients with long relationships. Ok, if he says so, go ahead. He should accept only those patients then. Why other patients have to suffer his awful negative energy? I hope other people won't suffer by him like me.
An excellent physician in my opinion and experience. Knowledgeable, direct, explained the pros and cons of certain treatments, fast and he gave specific advice on what NOT to do in order to speed my recovery. Many people expect a walk-in clinic to deal with several medical issues on one visit, which is neither possible nor billable for the Dr. Dr. French is focused, very bright and helpful. Grateful for his assistance.
