Ratings for Dr. Fred Jardine
I was Dr. Jardine's patient for many years before moving to Calgary. He is one of the best, most caring doctors I have had. My Dad was a family doctor before he passed away, and Dr. Jardine has that "old school" way of treating patients. He always took the time to listen to me and never made me feel like my issues were "all in my head" or unimportant. I am shocked by the nasty comments on here. There are two sides to every story, and I would imagine that these comments should be taken with a grain of salt. The only issue that I had was having to wait in the waiting room for a long time despite making an appointment. The reception staff could do a better job of scheduling by inquiring about the nature of the visit, and provide ample time for each patient so that he doesn't get backlogged every day. This is a good man and a very good doctor. Debbie Moore.
Dr. Jardine is a terrible, irresponsible doctor. He gave a teenage patient a questionnaire to fill out and then immediately diagnosed her with Multiple Personality Disorder (a term which had been removed from the DSM before she was born) without her ever seeing a psychiatrist. He did not refer her to a psychologist/psychiatrist, and told the young patient instead of her parents, causing her needless stress. This was of course blatantly incorrect. and after changing doctors she has been correctly diagnosed with anxiety and mild OCD, which are being managed responsibly. Absolutely furious that this man is still practicing and potentially traumatizing young patients with his blatant lack of knowledge and flagrant disregard for mental health.
Had this doctor for many years until I wised up. A terrible doctor full of himself and not very good with anything past simple diagnoses. Missed diagnosed my whole family and was a terrible doctor when I had serious back injuries. At that time he believed that drugs was the answer to everything. He does not work well with other health professionals especially if they differ with his narrow minded options. Would never recommend this doctor to anyone.
Worse full of himself doctor I've ever had. He kept mis diagnosing my whole family. Told me to ignore a lump in my breast and to go get a walk and worry less. Told my 8 year old she has asthma as well as the whole family. I changed doctor. Turned out she had pneumonia and I had to have a biopsy.
Dr. Jardine has been my family doctor for over 20 years. He knows everything about me and listens to my description of the problem before he checks me out. He explains his opinion or diagnosis and any testing that is to be done. I have taken my children to him since they were 3 and 5. He would always explain things to them as well. My youngest used to get his medical terms and didn't want to know what it meant. Her next visit she would repeat the medical term and explain to him what it was. lol. She is starting her last year of medical school. In Sept. Thanks Doc.
