Ratings for Dr. Mike Armitage
Saturday night I was rushed to the hospital by my boyfriend because I was dehydrated and very sick. I was in alot of pain. When he finally saw me he was very rude and disrespectful. He blamed me for making myself sick and told me that no one gets better being lazy laying in bed. He wrote me a useless prescription and sent me home still dehydrated. My conditonhas sense worsened after seeing him. I will avoid him at all costs from now on.
saw Dr. Armitage in emergency in the From hospital on the 23rd of Feb.2016after waiting 8 or more hrs.Do dnot like him! In my opinion there is something not right there.He was not what I thought the way a professional Should act.Walking all aronnd the small room, waving his arms, rambling on, asking questions but not listening when I tried to answer made me to believe he was missing the intelligence that a person would expect from a Dr. Doing emergency care I put it down to this is because there is a shortage of Drs.and this is all From can provide.I am very surprised that the hospital would keep him after all the other poor reviews,which I can relate to. 00
This doctor has complete disregard for anyone in his care. Complete incompetence with me and my 12 yr old son with a severely infected ingrown toenail.. I will avoid his ingrorance at all cost and therefore go to oromocto for emergencies. He rates 0 for our whole family. Ignorant personality.
This Doctor was sending my father in law home, said he had a stomach flu, was there for 8 hours that day and was sending him home…1 more blood test requested from another doctor, he was in septic shock, 8 different bacterias in his blood! now on life support since may 2013. On dialysis, in an out of coma, tube fed and told will never leave the hospital now in SJ. Two weeks ago, daughter was tired all the time, stomach pains, felt like was going to be sick a lot, sore neck and muscle…same Dr. was told after urine results back that she has a viral infection. Nurse mentioned prior to him coming in, urine didn't look great…he said never mind that, viral and will pass, sent home. Monday morning call from my family physician, Dr. Keddy, inquiring about my daughter and how she was doing and if she was given prescription??? said no, for what? She had e-coli in her urine results!!!!!! if this doesn't scare you, not sure what would….imagine being in his care?! RUN
I attended the ER with an adult with cognitive delays who had been complaining about abdominal pain. Dr. Armitage was dismissive of her and I had to reiterate several times that I knew her medical history and if she was complaining of pain, there had to be something wrong. He had some blood taken and sent her for an abdominal XRay (which didn't help her anxiety) and he then ended his shift. His replacement took one look at her chart and ordered a urine sample. It showed a significant UTI (bladder infection) and she was given a prescription for meds and released right away. Had Dr. Armitage done this in the first place, it would have been less invasive, and MUCH more efficient for everyone involved.
We had Dr. Armitage for several years before he went to the H department. He was by far the best family Dr. we have ever had. We've not seen him in Emergency. His communication is excellent, and he walks you through his thought process. You are a person as opposed to a per visit fee.
We saw Dr. Armitage at the DECH the other night with our 2 kids. In my opinion he was possibly the best Doctor I have personally ever witnessed with kids! Great manners combined with the ability to interact with kids - a skill not many doctors have. For me personally, an MD that actually listens to patients and responds to those concerns is very important and this is where I thought Dr. Armitage excelled. At the end of the day, after waiting for 3 hours in the emergency room, Dr. Armitage had the ability to make us forget about the wait and leave in positive spirits. A very nice people person Dr..
I went to the ER with severe pain on my right side that radiated around to my back. I was immediately put into a bed and the nurse went to get the doctor. I suspected it was my gallbladder as this was not my first experience with this. He came in examined me and said it was just bad acid reflux, with out doing any tests, bloodwork taken when I first arrived shoed a slightly elevated white cell count, he said he wasn't sure what that meant. He gave me a previcid, and a shot of Demerol and gravol mixed together, he came back in and asked if it helped, I said No, and tried to explain family history and how I knew that it was in fact related to my gallbladder, he put his hand in my face, told me he didn't care, and that I should come back as an outpatient for an ultrasound of my family doctor ordered it, when I protested he again put his hand in my face and yelled at me to stop talking. He sent me home still in pain with Morphine pills.
