Ratings for Dr. Dominique St-Cyr
Very nice woman and I think she means well...but she has no understanding of the medications she is prescribing. She needs to spend some time researching what the USA is finding out about the dangers and risks of medications and drug reactions and interactions. Stop attend meetings from drug manufacturers doctor and spend some time learning your trade. More is not necessarily better, it is just quicker.
After reading comments and hearing from friends what a wonderful OB/GYN Dr St-Cyr was I was definitely hopeful for my appointment on gynecology issues. Her receptionist was wonderful and friendly, appointment was on time but information in the appointment was useless. She didn't ask family history (only about endometriosis), didn't ask about past pregnancies, complications, etc and then proceeded to tell me that a PILL would cure edometriosis. I wasn't even diagnosed with that. I was diagnosed with Adenomyosis. I asked if a hysterectomy would be an option and the answer was a clear no. To big of a risk because there is probably edometriosis all over my insides. Umm....I don't think you can tell that from ONE ultrasound that showed a growth in my uterus wall that was adenomyosis. So I agreed to take this medication...went to the pharmacy to get it filled and of course when I get home I read the pamphlet. EVERY drug has side affects and I'm completely okay with that but it says you should not use it if you have a family history of breast cancer. I lost my mom to breast cancer when she was very young. I am so frustrated. I asked about side affects and if it was safe to take this drug on a long term basis and she said it was and it would "cure" my edometriosis. Not once did she ask family history. If I am going to take this drug until I hit menopause I think it would be important to check family history. I'm returning the drug to the pharmacy tomorrow, making another appointment with my GP to get a second opinion. So frustrating...
Very good doctor but always late on appointment....
Dr. St-Cyr delivered both of my children. Both pregnancies had complications and there is no one i would trust more than Dr St Cyr to look after me. In life after pregnancy, i have seen her twice - once for a tubal ligation - and again today with other OB/GYN concerns. She will always be late for 2 reasons: 1. She listens to every concern you have. You are never rushed. 2. She has to respond to calls form the hospital if there are problems with labours/patients, etc. Yes, its slightly annoying, but I also remember when i was that patient that probably called her away from her office. I left there today feeling like someone actually listened. IT was so nice - and honestly - like no time had passed since i was pregnant, even thought my kids will be 7 and 5 this year. She makes you feel welcome and important. Most importantly, she knows her stuff. Seriously knows her stuff. She is absolutely wonderful.
