Ratings for Dr. Schalk Johannes Lombard, Retired
I will always be grateful for Dr.Lombard. When he opened up his own practice he still allowed me to be a patient even on his busy - busy days he would sneak me in. He listens, he has dealt with my grandma, my mom, my dad, my brothers and sisters... pretty much my entire family loves him! He is so easy to talk to and actually explains things that we can understand. Also has a great sense of humour which makes it easy to talk to him about personal things. I moved to Saskatoon and wish he was here!
He has misdiagnosed me or my children on at least 5 occasions while being seen at the walk I clinic. As I write this I am waiting at the pharmacy for a prescription for strep throat, the second doc I saw said the infection is definitely not viral and has been there for some time. In one instance he prescribed "popscicles and hugs" for my two year ild who was fevered, lethargic and not eating or drinking. Within 12 hours we returned to a different doc and were informed he had infections in his ears, lungs and throat. It is pretty bad when a colleague in your own clinic rolls their eyes at what you told a patient. Save your time and frustration - see someone else.
Dr Lombard has been our family physician for years and he has always been extremely helpful, efficient and kind. We are lucky to have him. He sent me immediately by ambulance to the hospital when I was having heart problems, no fooling around. He takes good care of us!
Dr. Lombard is a great doctor. I have been going to him for a number of years and I like the fact that he doesn't sugar coat things, he tells you the truth and in a way that the average person can understand. The fact that he is fairly blunt with his diagnosis can come across as a bad bedside manner, but I would prefer to hear the truth than what some doctor thinks I want to hear. He can be somewhat rushed at times, but if you confront him on it, he will take the time you need. Honesty is a good thing!
I went for a physical in Sept and Dr. Lombard was to send my prescription renewals to my pharmacy. He did not do this. When I called his office in regards to this I was told that I would have to go see him again. I am diabetic and out of meds! I have now switched doctors and am filing a complaint against Lombard!
I find he is always rushed even with no one waiting. He never puts down his lap top unless he really has to. Does not share any information, just does what he thinks a person needs and runs out the door. You have to see him in person will never take a phone call question. No money in that. He would do well only at a clinic, As I feel he care about people or lets them ask questions, again no cash in that.
Dr. Lombard has been our family doctor since he has been practising in Prince Albert.He is very friendly and thorough. Immediately sent me for further tests when needed.Sometimes a bit rushed.Feel I can't always ask about another problem other than what I initially came for.
Find that he won't refer when he should to a specialist. Is very unconcerned about abnormal results. Doesn't know alot about common disease states. Doesn't know alot about drug interactions and the common side affects that drugs can have. Needs to reeducate himself.
Dr. Lombard has been my doc for a long time and I do not have any complaints at all. You can talk to him about anything and he is very smart at what he does. Anyone he said he was not helpful and after money must have been to someone different!
