Ratings for Dr. Charlene Lyndon
No doubt knowledgeable, but lacks perspective on treatment options. Went to her for concerns about endometriosis, a touchy gyno disease. Over the next year, at every appt, she refused to listen to other doctors opinions, ignored direct recommendations from 3 physiotherapists, and constantly bullied me into taking hormonal treatment that would put me into menopause at age under 25. Refused to listen to second medical opinions saying I REQUIRE surgery, especially for a disease that cannot be diagnosed without surgery (despite her 'diagnosing' me on a pelvic exam). Also gave false information and hope, saying a certain drug will CURE my disease despite countless academic and medical sources saying it is incurable and only operable and that the drug has no conclusive evidence on positive treatment. Not even going to touch on the fact that every appt she is over an hour late for... Booked surgery out of desperation from pain, but actively seeking alternative surgeon. Booked surgery out of desperation from pain, but actively seeking alternative surgeon. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR FOR ENDO. UNTRAINED (NO FELLOWSHIP)
I encountered Dr Lyndon to be exceptional with her knowledge and skill. Everything was explained and all my options given. She has a calm manner and I understood my condition. My surgery went very well (laparoscopic hysterectomy) and I was walking the next morning. Dr Lyndon is wonderful and I would not hesitate to go back. She has given me my life back as I no longer live in pain.
I've been to several doctors because I had bleeding problems with my fibroid. Dr Lyndon was the only doctor who figured out how to give me my life back! I was nervous to get surgery but Dr Lyndon gave me confidence to move ahead. She made sure all my questions were answered and the surgery was perfect. The team at Rockyview that she works with is also excellent. Also, she's really nice!
I came here two years ago with my mom and honestly, without this doctor's help I don't know what would have happened to my mother. I am so grateful for you doctor Charlene! Thank you so much for going that extra step with my mom. You have helped us tremendously.
Dr. Lyndon is an outstanding physician. I met her in the emergency room at Rockyview many years back when she was asked to review my mothers case. She was excellent and when I developed a prolapse I searched her out. Just as in the past she was excellent. She explains everything and offers all the options. There was sometimes a wait but not bad. Her compassion, skill and pre and post surgery care were all excellent. Dr. Lyndon is great!
First doctor that actually cared and took the time to help me. This meant the world to me and my family. After being thrown around to what seemed like 10 different doctors. It was Dr. Lyndon who took the time to send me for more tests and she is the one that figured everything out. I am so glad to have finally met a doctor thst truly cared about my pain.
Dr.Lyndon is amazing ! She took care of all my pre and postnatal care . Whenever I had an appointment with her she made me feel like I was the only patient she was seeing . She made sure if I had any questions she was sure to answer them. Some days I would get to my appointment and she would be running a little behind schedule, like most doctors I've seen but she would always apologize and say I would do the same for you it was an emergency situation.Unfortunately she wasn't able to deliver my daughter because she was off duty at the time but she made sure she came to see us the next morning. She took the time and called me personally .When I didn't answer because I was in labour she called the hospital asking if I had been admitted.just to check in and see how I was doing . That being said I had amazing nurses and doctors taking care of me at rocky view and I would without a doubt see doctors Lyndon again with future pregnancies!
I was referred to Dr. Lyndon and was very disappointed in her manner. She did not take me concerns seriously and did not listen to me. She seemed flustered, distracted and just plain too busy for me. She may be smart but I did not feel heard. I will be looking for a new doctor.
I was referred to Dr. Lyndon over 2 years ago in a state of exhaustion and confusion. Over the subsequent time she has helped me manage my symptoms and has always explained all the possible solutions. Just now I have decided to go with surgery. To get here I was not rushed. I am entering my surgery with full knowledge and for that I am greatful and confident. Dr Lyndon has improved my health and life. I feel great about the fact that I am having surgery even though I have strived to avoid it. Feel confident if you choose this gynecologist to manage your case.
