Ratings for Dr. Irma Schuurman
A couple years ago I was dealing with severe stomach pain and had a hard time keeping down food. Every time I would visit Schuurman for this problem, she claimed that there was no serious problem, and I was quickly rushed away with nothing. Soon after, I found out I had IBS and celiac disease.
Dr. Schuurman has been unnecessarily rude on multiple occasions that my mother, friend, and myself have gone back. She told me that I would lose my job because of my knee surgery and refused to give my friend birth control because "she wasn't in a serious relationship." Not only was she unhelpful and unsympathetic, but if you are a woman and decide to drop into a clinic on a day when she isn't available, her male coworkers will refuse to help you with anything pertaining to the gential region and will tell you to come back when Schuurman is in.
wonderful doctor. She has cared for me and my family for many years. Over the years she has helped us with several serious medical problems. She has made sure that we were connected with the care we needed in timely manner. I am so thankful for her care.
I've been Dr Schuurman patient for almost 15 years. Yes there's always a long wait before your appointment but it is worth it. She can be in a rush sometimes but if you simply limit your concerns to 2 things per appointment she will accommodate it. I've read some reviews on here saying she is rude and I don't agree at all. I'm probably her worst patient and she has only ever been short with me but never rude. Her and I haven't always seen eye to eye on things, when that has happened I simply made another appointment and further explained my concerns. She is a very busy doctor and she is human so not every day is sunshine and roses. She is a fantastic doctor.
She is very old school and very arrogant. She denied that I have Candidiasis (Gastrointestinal Candida Infection) because she "didn't believe in it". This is after I have read countless studies published in the past 10 years talking about the dangers of a fungal Candida infection and the complications that can arise. She does not care to further her knowledge. She is a run of the mill basic GP with zero understanding of any new conditions, complications, or anything to do with mental health. She is always behind, rushed and late. Very invalidating and disingenuous. Steer clear.
