Ratings for Dr. Dawn Papo
Doctor Papo is the most amazing doctor I have ever seen. She is cheerful, compassionate, understanding and always supportive. I have seen her since 2007 and now travel to see her in Qualicum. It is worth the drive because she knows how to treat her patients with respect!
The worst doctor I have ever seen, as are the others in this practice. She does nothing but send you for unnecessary tests,does not listen, is hardly ever there and never gets a locum. Would not see her if she were the last one standing. She is so full of her own opinions, she has no time to listen to yours. Absolutely dreadful.
Spends all her time looking at her computer, rarely makes any eye contact with people even when discussing very serious health concerns. Makes extremely hurtful, and inconsiderate remarks regarding personal health issues. Completely lacking any empathy, warmth or tact of any kind. The most rushed and insensitive doctor I have ever encountered. Doctors at Walk in Clinics take more care with patients then this "family doctor"
She is the worst GP I have had. She seems to be easily threatened. She manipulates me by screaming, verbally insulting and demeaning, etc. I have found her to be, and not trustworthy. She does not make referrals as she said she would, and if she does, often it is not done in a timely way.. She has made an incorrect referral for an important test. . She does not consistently read recommendations from other professionals, and refuses to discuss these unless they are from a "specialist md." She does not follow through with many things, such as important forms. She can put on a "false" face of being kind and caring, but patient care does not seem to be her first interest. She cancels appointments close to appointment time. She has refused to get my previous doctor's file (who died), and dismisses this doctor unfairly. She can be very disrespectful, and stresses me tremendously. I have had to write things on paper, because her unprofessional behavior has derailed me. Recently, she grabbed the paper from my hand, didn't read it, but dismissed it. She does not record things correctly and writes demeaning and incorrectly comments in my file. I'm wondering if she hates intelligent, single, white women., who don't buy into "status" symbols such as her gorgeous diamond ring, which she has flashed at me more than once. It is hard enough having health issues, without having to do battle with someone like her. I would have changed doctors a long time ago, but there is a severe shortage of doctors here.
Dr. Papo is such great person and doctor. I feel lucky to have such an amazing doctor like her, she has helped me to so much throughout the years! Although she is so kind and caring she also isn't afraid to advocate strongly for her patients when needed.
