Ratings for Dr. A. Shier, Retired
This man should retire and let a younger, more knowledgeable doctor take over. He has no interest in my aunt's concerns. When she complains about her memory loss, he says "that's what happens when you get old!" There is treatment for dementia! She also suffers with depression, and he just tells her to get out more often. I seriously believe he is still practicing just for the money.
My mother died a few months ago because of him. She was complaining of abdominal pain for months and he refused to refer her to a specialist. Just kept her doped up on painkillers. Finally, she was rushed to the Delta hospital and they discovered colon cancer but by then it was too late and had spread to all her organs.
The worst!! His misdiagnosis was based on total incompetence and lack of following worldwide standards, which was made very clear to me after I first checked the internet, contacted the Canadian Lung Association, and then saw another doctor. He only books 5 minute appointments, no matter what. He truly does not care. Enough already - RETIRE!
I saw Dr Shier for a company medical. Blood pressure test: he pulled off the cuff as soon as it pressured up and said "good - it's 120/80". He hadn't even done the second half of the reading!! Then the form I had asked for a BMI (body mass index). All you need is a height and weight measurement. He said "he had never heard of it before and wouldn't do it". If that's the case then he is the only doctor on the planet that has never heard of it. The BC Medical Association should review his license. That's a fact. Don't use him.
Dr. Shier is Unthoughtful and unconsiderate. He deals with you as if you were a dumb person. In his demanor he is arrogant. If he is knowlegable it doesn't show, he is impatient and not caring in short he should be a banker as far as I am concerned. Compassion and care are not his calling. Truly not a good doctor at all!
Dr. Shier should retire. Told me I didn't need a pap test 3 years ago because I has a hysterectomy & then this year he told me I need to still have paps because I can still get ovarian cancer & it's better to be safe, he always errors on the side of caution - yeah right. Brushes off concerns very quickly. His nurse is no better, she is very very rude!
