Ratings for Dr. Fred G Solven
This is my second visit to see Dr. Solven. I didn't have to wait months to get an appointment. He was on time, listened to my concerns, and provided a reasonable explanation for my symptoms. He also explained what symptoms I might expect to see in the future and what would need to be done when they do occur. I left feeling reassured. I would request to see him again if needed in the future.
My husband seen him last year and again this year but not by our choice. He basically had opinion made before he seem my husband. Dr. is so smart that he is stupid. No bed side manner. He got in my face and told me I had to except his opinion. Lucky I am a lady or I would have decked him. He also doesn't like it when you have faith in God. I think he needs to be put out to pasture. Time for him to retire. He has such a nice wife though. I pity her. I can't believe that the DECH lets a doctor like him work there. He is a poor representation of the hospital and his profession. Never would recommend him or want to see him.
I have reused to go to him as I have seen a mistake that would have killed his patient and can't stand his God like attitude !! I worked in the health field for years and I am telling you that I will NEVER go to him and have been told stories about him from other health care workers. Dr Moore is very good and there is a new guy by the name of Dr Charles Smith who seems very competent.
Dr Solven might be good if you already had a heart attack but with new patients he is very dismissive and doesn't even pay attention to your symptoms. He genuinely believes the patient has zero knowledge of anything health related. I lost few years until I saw a different doctor to get a real diagnosis.
Never got to see him. I drove 1.5 hours only to be told he couldn't see me that day and had to drive be 1.5 hours home. The next time i called to make sure He was going to be there and on time and I was informed I did and he was. I arrived 10 minutes early only to wait an hour and then left. As to his competence, I couldn't tell you but I can tell you I am not going back. I'd rather have the heart attack and then go to someone else.
He seems very knowledgeable, but he also seems rather cold? Bored? Maybe I caught him at a bad time. I think he's got the knowledge and understanding - I have confidence - if he's motivated. I'd be fine going to him again. He's what I would call one of the better doctors in Fredericton. No question. But of course all these guys have their quirks and such. He has his. Again, I think his knowledge and ability is just fine (for Fredericton anyway).
