Ratings for Dr. Ian Symington
He used to be great in the beginning. However we experienced a few occasions where he brushed off pain, made excuses and basically said it was all in my head. I went to someone else who was able to get the results from tests he did and it showed I did indeed have something wrong. When I had a miscarriage, he told me that "it wasn't really a baby". He became an insensitive jerk. He was always slow, if your appointment was for 1:30, you were lucky to see him by 2:30. He has now moved locations and he is starting to get better again, He will look things up sometimes if he isn't sure.
I feel very blessed to have Ian as my family Doctor. I experienced a severe trauma and he went above and beyond to ensure I did not slip through the health care cracks. He continues to take the time needed to ensure all my issues and concerns are addressed. I could not say enough good things about him.
Dr Symington is the absolute best. Our family has had him for several years now and he's been through many trying situations with us all. He has always been there for us and because of him we have gotten through all the hard & very difficult situations. He is a Dr with a lot of knowledge, a kind & very caring person who listens. We are so very fortunate to have the very best in a Doctor. We as his patients absolutely love him!!
I have known Dr. Symington for a while as he was once my teacher in high school and coached my track team. He obviously brought those skills to his practice, because he is a patient Doctor who takes time to listen and make sure his patients understand what is being presented. He looks after both of my ageing parents and I feel a huge amount of relief that they are under his care. We need more doctors like him that combine excellent clinical skills with strong communication skills. Great patient experience and effectiveness all in one.
