Ratings for Dr. Patricia Allan
Has been my doctor for about 25 years. If it's an acute issue, you can usually get in same day. She keeps her practice relatively small (for Antigonish standards) and as such, it doesn't take weeks for a routine appointment. Furthermore, she is always punctual, a rarity in this town. I find that she is open to referring to specialists if needed/requested. On the whole, I am very happy to have Dr. Allan as my doctor.
Her overall disposition was friendly and showed concern at times. However, there were many topics (basic questions, not for a specialist) that she could not answer. She was also dismissive about my concerns at times, and she treated other family members the same way. She would not refer one of my family to a needed clinic, so she had to pay for it out of her own pocket on a fixed income. I think she is one of the worst doctors I have ever had and I have seen plenty.
Dr. Allan has been my Doctor since she came to Antigonish. She has helped me with every problem I have had over the years. I always get my appoitments in a timely fashion. And she has no problem sending me to a specialist when needed. Wonderful Doctor I am very lucky.
An OK doctor... However, she failed to diagnose a problem I had that was much more serious than she lead me to believe, and additionally failed to escalate me to a specialist for said problem. Probably not generally an apathetic person, but I was quite dissatisfied with her due to this.
