Ratings for Dr. Kerri Best
Dr. Best truly suits her name. She went over and above to get an answer to my illness. When other doctors wanted to dismiss me because they did not know what to do, Dr. Best kept pushing until she found a specialist that was willing to help. She isn't the type of doctor that will prescribe meds just because, or let's see if this works!! Best doctor I have ever had!
Dr. Best is a nice person and is great to talk to. I find she does take the wait and see approach too much. I end up having to see her multiple times which is extremely difficult due to the 1 hour drive with a newborn. When you really need her she is never in the office. The staff say go to the walk in clinic. What is the point of having a family doctor is you never can see her.
She is a good doctor if you can ever get in to see her. I understand needing a work life balance but being in the office one day a week is not okay. She needs to focus more time on her patients. I always end up at a walk in clinic because she in never in the office. Even her receptionist is frustrated when you call to make an appointment because she is never around.
I have been with Dr Best since she started practicing in Mount Albert, I have since moved to Barrie and still take the drive (snow storms in all) to see her. She has always been available when I have needed her. I like that she gets to know me personally and that I can talk to her about anything. She has helped me out mentally and physically. I am lucky to have a Dr like her.
Dr. Best is a great Dr. She always makes sure any problems we bring to her attention are looked after, either by her or by someone she feels we should be referred to if the issue warrants it. I personally prefer her interest, concern, and involvement in my family's healthcare, much more than some cold unfeeling technical person.
I tried this doctor once because she was closer at the time. Turned out her moving to Port Perry saved my life. I was just told to loose weight and diet. I went back to my old doctor, thank god he took me. Turns out I had the beginning stages of uterine cancer and within 3 months of diagnosis (trips to Sunnybrook, North York General and drug therapy to control bleeding until surgery could be performed) a hysterectomy was done and my weight became more manageable and my energy levels returned. She is very friendly, but dismissive without investigating actual symptoms.
