Ratings for Dr. Geoffrey Inman
I've been a patient of Dr. Inman's for over 6 years and think he is wonderful. He is punctual, knowledgeable and has a wonderful sense of humour. I don't always take his advice or agree with him but that's my prerogative. I usually feel better just having seen him as he is upbeat and generally concerned for my health and wellbeing. I also really like his receptionist Dana. I find her very accommodating if I am trying to get an appointment. She is extremely busy and works in a small, windowless space so kudos to her for being able to handle appointments and concerns from so many patients! Bring her some flowers sometime for goodness sake! And be happy that, in Victoria, you have a family doctor and someone to book an appointment for you!
Dr. Inman has been my doctor for almost 20 years, and has been awesome the whole time. He's knowledgeable, genuine, very comfortable to talk to and is extremely trusting. I wouldn't trade Inman up for any other doctor period. His receptionist however, is an absolutely horrific to deal with. She's always been confrontational, rude, extremely irresponsible with calling back or sending referrals, and couldn't care less about anyone's needs or wellbeing, and gets mad at you when she has to do her job (i.e book a follow-up appointment). I hope she retires before he does.
I have been a patient of Dr. Inman's for 20 years now. Have followed him from Langford, to Fairfield, to his current office near RJH. He is fantastic doctor - compassionate, knowledgeable, thorough, and a good sense of humour. My husband also sees him and thinks he's pretty great too.
I have seen Dr Inman a few times now and have always had a great experience with Geoff, who shows a great amount of compassion and empathy during appointments. I have been well accommodated by his staff to find an appointment, even on short botice. Understanding the volume of calls and visits they get when treating 50+ people each day goes a long way when reviewing this acpect of service. Some of the previous reviews clearly don't understand the nature of the system.
I have been real happy with Dr. Inman. He's prompt, precise, and pleasant. He follows up when you don't expect him to, and doesn't get worked up about things that don't matter. He is supportive and puts the patients needs first. The administrative side is a bit frustrating - i.e. getting through to book an appointment or making sure that the appropriate documents get transferred. A new administrative system would make this doctor close to perfect.
Geoff is verylpleasant and friendly and has been very thorough. His receptionist is atrocious- he should find someone else who knows how to manage things and ANSWER the phone. Message says phones answered certain hours but she has never answered phone and always goes to machine. Then she is poor at phoning back. Unbelievable!!! Wake up Geoff to getting a better receptionist!!!
Poor communication within, money motivated, poor note taking and follow up. Does not listen and lacking in empathy. My kidney disease was found by a locum. I called Dana in tears needing resolution with what I thought was depression I self diagnosed that I had been weaned off an Rx improperly. And that took 21 days!!! and no thanks to him. Shame on him.
Our current family doctor decided to leave her practice and Dr. Inman agreed to accept my mom, 3 brothers, sister in law, aunt, uncle and myself as patients. When we had a death in the family both him and his receptionist Dana made personal calls to each of us to give their condolences. I have also received phone calls from him at home in the evening if he had received results from a test that he has concerns about. On occasion later in the day there has been the odd appointment where he may be 10 mins behind schedule but for the most part I've never had to wait too long.
