Ratings for Dr. Rhoda Pullan
Ended up in ER while on a sailing trip with a kidney stone attack. Dr. Pullan came in to see me shortly I was transferred to a unit and followed me through my care. She was amazing needless to say. She was very knowledgeable and professional and caring. She was even willing to go out of her way to help me on my requests. Being from Calgary, I can honestly and happily say that I have never been treated so caringly and special like I was in the Cowichan District Hospital in Duncan, BC. Thank you to all the nurses, especially Michelle, as well as Dr. Nielsen who took the time and effort to take care of me once consulted. I definitely did not feel like just another patient but like a family member or a good friend whose health and wellbeing was so important.
Dr. Pullan was recommended by another doctor to take care of my critically ill husband when we moved to Duncan. I cannot find a negative thing to say about her. She was always VERY attentive and caring. She was there for us whenever we needed. At first I was surprised to receive night time or weekend calls to check in, but it became very reassuring to know that she was following his care as closely as she was. His complicated condition intimidated many doctors and hospital staff, but not her - she was always knowledgable, confident and calming. During his last month she was by his side, and was secretly watching over me and my girls - making sure we were doing okay. After his passing she was just as astute in caring for his family. I don't know how we would have made it through the ups and downs of that decade without her. Sometimes it takes a while to get in to see her, but that speaks volumes of her care for all her patients. If anything is ever important her wonderful staff make every effort to accommodate and get you seen. Absolutely fantastic dr and human being!!!
Rhoda has been our family Dr for 17 years. she has all the qualities a patient could want - attentive, easy to talk to, caring, remembers details, down-to-earth, compassionate, organized, does not rush you. & she isn't full of herself - if she doesn't have an answer to my specific question she looks it up - instead of pretending she knows. only downside is her patients love her so much can be hard to get an apt quickly but if it's urgent her friendly, happy, efficient secretary Gwen makes it happen. very happy with Dr Pullan!
Very disappointed with her. She told us she didn't see the point in trying to get hospice care. Our regular family GP is now doing everything he can to get the hospice placement going. She is late returning calls and was not very responsive or thorough in the tests she ran and her bedside manner left something to be desired. So grateful to have our regular GP for support.
