Ratings for Dr. Colleen Darling
Terrible secretary. Horrible woman who speaks to clients like she's doing them a favour. Would have been fired years ago if her boss wasn't her sister. Has way too many patients to see in her 10-2 work day and if your not nice to her secretary, good luck in getting an appointment. When you threaten to go to another doctor, your threatened with large charge to get your records sent or told to sit in the clinic for two hours. Should give records for free if you can't see the patients you have.
Terrible Toxic Doctor, She's quick to blame anything she can on you. Offers general advice as what she calls "Help" in recent years wait times have increased not too long ago I had waited 2 hours in the waiting room. Every time you go their you will mostly feel insulted or ashamed regardless of your mental health or disabilities she shows little compassion and frankly is unqualified go find another doctor if you can.
I used to get mad when I didn't hear or get what I wanted. .then another patient told me "secretary is just the messanger"..when I stopped to think...I actually always get offerred an appt. I just had to start being more flexible. Evening appointment are a bonus..just book ahead. ..Dr Darling does do "wait and see" she's not a drug pusher. If you are a patient who goes in dictating treatment. .go to a walk in clinic. .they give you anything (but quality care)...patients. ..maybe YOU should start thinking about why you doctor hop!!!!
I always walk out of their office feeling insulted and frustrated. Both Sue and the Dr. are impatient, miserable, and condescending. The Dr. is hesitant to act on most things, giving it a "wait and see" approach, even things that can be easily dealt with like pink eye, or a sinus infection. She argues about everything, and scoffs at most of what is said. Hard to believe she is a small town doctor with this attitude. I am looking for someone else to take on my family's care. An office where smiles and a friendly greeting by the receptionist are not impossible to come by, and where the Dr. sees you as a well informed self advocate. RETIRE!!! You don't need to deal with people if you hate them so much.
Her sister/reseptionist is so rude! Dr darling use to be good. I guess her sister is rubbing off on her cause she is horrible now. Everything I have taken my kids or I to her about has never been solve. They tell me my kids are up to date on shot. Only to get a letter from the school saying they are missing some. So had to make another appointment to get these things worst mistake I've made is stay this long! Time to fire your sister and maybe you will be great again!
Not my first time but definitely my last. Went to see Dr Darling for"stress" as my husband was diagnosed with a neuro degenerative disease 9 months earlier. I was feeling quite anxious and exhausted - I just wanted her to "check me out" . i.e. blood pressure cuff, stethoscope. Neither item was produced and in its place a ridiculous questionnaire to determine my level of stress. Was NOT helpful. In discussing my husband's condition and when I mentioned an alternative pathway via Naturopath, she scoffed at me as if I insulted her team. "What makes you think they can help? Its not scientific" she said. I advised her of a possible misdiagnosis or at least co infection, etc. and provided a reason why and she further scoffed. Then the kicker...she found it necessary to support her reasoning for NOT giving me a letter for stress leave (not that I asked for one or wanted it) as "this could go on for a while and you'll need your job AFTER". Thanks for not supporting any hope in another option as well as outlining the fact that yes my husband will likely die in the near future. VERY Poor bedside manner, petty and not professional at all. Dresses unprofessionally. You are NOT a horsewoman lady. Stop dressing like one in the office. Stuffed chairs and curtains in exam room are very unsanitary as well.
