Ratings for Dr. Alfred Ernst
Dr Alfred is a very good doctor, anytime I have a problem he gives me the proper medication or treatment to cure it, and it always work. Once when i had a strange lump and needed to be referred and he got me a specialist right away. Overall if any of you have a any problems in my opinion he would be the first to go to.
This doctor is incompetent on so many levels! He takes Blood pressure readings with a stethoscope so he can tell you make-believe BP readings. I found out at my new doctor that my BP was extremely high 160/106 and RUH ER it was 166/98. The doctor gave me BP meds that dropped my BP to 127/88 in 30 minutes. Dr. Ernest is worse than having no doctor!!! Hypertension is called the silent killer because there are no outward symptoms until your BP is extremely high.
After having the displeasure of him being the only Doctor available for awhile all I can say is RETIRE ALREADY! He is inept 90% of the day and works far too much for his age because he is money hungry. Overtly Religious and a pervert. Asks inappropriate questions about personal life that has nothing to do with why you are there (religion, sexual etc). Dangerously inept when dealing with mefications that he feels you don't have to be on even if a specialist put you on it years ago. He will take you off of meds that are dangerous to stop abruptly as he "gets people off of drugs, doesn't get/keep you on them". Pushes ssri and snri (amitryptaline is his go to) for nearly everything. Please someone revoke his license. Maybe at one time he was competent, but that was about 20 years ago.
He told me was I was going to bleed to death in labor; forced me to go to Rosetown to give labor and then when I got there I had to be ambulanced to Saskatoon because there was nothing they could do for me in Rosetown. I would have just drove to Saskatoon in the first place it wasn't for him lying to me about going to Rosetown. Rude, unethical, would never recommend this Dr. to anyone. If you google his name you will also find that he has been reprimanded for his actions and forced to take an ethical course for his unprofessional behaviour.
If you go to Dr. Ernst you know you are going to get a proper examination. He has successfully diagnosed and treated my young boys for their upper respiratory infections every time. After following their healthcare and reoccurring urti's referred us to a really great specialist who diagnosed them with viral induced asthma. Dr. Ernst is quick, practical and to the point. The best GP's are the ones who know what specialists you need to go to and refer their patients on when it's appropriate. That's Dr. Ernst. Very caring and careful. My boys are never afraid to go to the doctor.
I went to the Dr for what turned out to be a yeast infection. Dr Earnst told me that it was very important that my girlfriend come in to see him for an exam. He had us both tested for stds. She went in for a full exam as well. I returned to him to get the results. He made comments to me about my girlfriend and her attractiveness. In the end I found out that the problem was a yeast infection. How could a Dr mistake a yeast infection for a std? He mislead me, didn't treat this properly, made me come for unnecessary appointments, and mislead me in order to give a full exam to a female for no reason. Dr earnst has absolutely no respect for patients time, he puts his own financial goals ahead of his patients needs, and his morals I would suggest are borderline illegal! Not only am I amazed that this man is able to practice medicine, I'm surprised he is not in jail.
