Ratings for Dr. Annette Turenne
Based on the adjectives used to describe this doctor and her ethical treatment of patients I have a feeling she is now in Medicine Hat. My husband was experiencing extreme depression and was unable to sleep for two nights. In desperation he went to the Walk In clinic in Medicine and saw DR A. Turenne. She was rude, unfeeling and unwilling to listen to my husband or his concerns. In stead of feeling better he was more depressed when he left her office. It was apparent that she had very little regard for the health of patients. My husband never wants to see her again and would recommend that anyone who is seeking medical attention see another doctor!!
Terrible So called Doctor. Cut my wifecoff a highly addictive drug cold turkey without even consulting a pharmacist or another Doctor, 9 days of absolute torture till she was put back on the medication to be weaned off slowly. She has to be reported for this and I will be. Talking to other doctors this should have never happened this way we put our trust in our Doctors you should never trust this one. She should not be allowed to practise Medicine!
I've read a few reviews for Dr. Turenne. Here's a positive one. I couldn't ever thank this women enough! Not only did she save my sons life during delivery, she had also saved mine. She performed a cesarean on me and my heart had stopped from the shock. My son wasn't breathing. We both were nearly gone, she saved us both. We would not be here today is it wasn't for her. She did what she had to and I am forever grateful. And as a bonus, my scar is beautiful and straight and healed very nice.
Firstly, I'd like to start off by saying that I rushed my son into the emergency ward in Bonnyville as my 5 week old son had (what seemed to me) pneumonia. Dr. Turenne sent my son home labelling it "a virus". One week later my son almost died as both lungs were filled with mucus. He was hospitalized for 5 days and kept in an oxygen tent. Needless to say. I did not take my family to see her (if I could help it). THEN...I heard of her clinic. Seemed to be that she knew what she was doing in the "beauty" department and, lets face it, everyone is fighting the battle of age. So... I entertained the idea. I booked a consultation and...wow. She was demeaning and demoralizing. She said that she "wished she could just scrape the skin from my face". BUT, took it with a grain of salt and began procedures. I spent upwards of $11,000.00. Much of that amount paid upfront for services that she suggest that I "try". That is were things go wrong. Booked appointments that were not in the computer, double-bookings, short treatment time (that I paid extensively for), short staffed (much of the time), revolving door of staff (untrained), treatments with equipment that was malfunctioning, very aggressive and rude remarks from Dr. when she did (actually) provide a treatment, applying only 2/3 of product (keeping the other 1/3 for herself), scars left on my face from burns (that was never documented by the untrained staff). They didn't so much as acknowledge my appointment that day. Seems suspicious that the staff didn't document the burning nor is there mention of the topical cream that they provided to apply to the burned area 3 x per day and as required. Their system doesn't even have me booked for an appointment that day. A cover-up perhaps? Needless to say, I requested my funds be returned as I wasn't comfortable with proceeding with the treatments. NOT A CHANCE. Dr. Turenne would not see me. Would not allow an appointment to be booked. Several attempts to contact the Dr. and to no avail. At this point, I was directed to the office manager, Arthur. What a waste of time. He would not return my calls or my texts. It took two months and I finally received payment. Short $500.00 of course. In short...she ripped my off and will not face me to explain the shortage. She over-charged me in light of being burned. This is a cold woman who's only concern is herself.
Went for a treatment took forever until the doctor actually came to do the treatment..... She had her assistant do something she was never shown before and Dr Turenne didn't even help her..... She treats her very poorly and the Dr didn't seem to care how long it took until see did the treatment.... Was not impressed the Dr didn't apologize to me or her assistant
