Ratings for Dr. Denisse Pella
I have been a patient of Dr. Pella for about 5 years now. She is very knowledgeable but does not waste time discussing every silly possibility that some patients tend to bring up. Having read the comments below, I believe her aasertiveness can be miscontrued for lack of empathy or dismissiveness. She also tends to become friendlier over time, as the relationship with her patients evolves. I think she is great and have every faith in her.
i am a former patient of Dr Pella. at first she was a good dr but after i had my second child she seemed not so great. she never really gave her any belly exams or wanted to touch her. i had to hold her out so she could mark on the paper her lenght as she grew. the last straw was when i requested testing for my oldest(4 at the time) who it turns out has sever ADHD/ODD. she told me Nothing was wrong with her and that it was my fault because i wasnt discipling her. I changed doctors the same day.
Dr. Pella was great in the beginning and seemed very knowledgable but then seemed to get too busy. She left me in a room for over 20 minutes waiting for a prescription write out while she was on a personal call and said she forgot all about me. Another time I had my first UTI ever and she said that she was going to refer me to the IWK UTI clinic. When I asked why she said :well because you have had so many UTI's. Then her 3rd strike was when I had a pelvic ultrasound for pelvic pain and she called me in to say to my shock that I was 3 months pregnant. I was not trying at this time. It turned out I wasn't, it was from results she had lost the 3 years prior from a previous pelvic ultrasound I had that I kept asking for the results and was sure I had a miscarriage but she said I hadn't so I never knew that I had been pregnant for sure then until these several years later. After that I switched doctors as had enough. I would not recemmend her at all.
Dr Pella has been my family doctor for over 4 years now and I am very pleased with every interaction with her. I have found her to be very knowledgeable, very professional and she provides a good deal of information about any condition or question you may have. Her staff are also very pleasant and helpful.
Dr. Pella is very knowledgeable she doesn't waste your time or hers to hear sob storeys and is very professional. Book an appointment and you might wait max of 15 min. She goes in assists you, treats you and both you and her are on your way no bulls***ing around. Want sympathy see a councillor not a doctor.
dr.pella is a very nice doctor BUT i feel that i am being pushed when i'm there. she doesn't ask about anything.last time i went there i was looking to get refills on my perscriptions , she didn't have my chart there , she was asking me what i was taking.. it really irriated me . shouldn't she of had it there with her to refer to? i work in health care and with doctors and i would take any of them over her. i truly despise going to her.i've needed to go to the doctor for over a year now and i keep putting it off because i'm not happy there. its just so hard to find a family doc these days. do any doctor know what family centred care really is anymore??
