Ratings for Dr. Aisling Mahalingham
I've been impressed with Dr. Mahalingham over the years. She has treated me for abnormal bleeding, menstrual pain and now, benign growth in my vaginal wall. Cancer is always a fear especially when there is previous uterine history. Even her colleagues who filled in for her were remarkable. She explains carefully with a compassionate balance between emotional and physical support. Her recommendations are thorough and conclusive.
Dr. Mahalingham performed my emergency C-section when my daughter was born at 24 weeks gestation. Her bedside manner was top notch. She was caring and informative and gave full details of the risks and likely outcomes for our daughters birth so we could make informed decisions. She was non-judgemental and allowed me to make my own choices, but she was supportive and offered her input when I wasn't sure and wanted more information. She was so incredible and caring, and one of the reasons I have a healthy 20 month old baby girl today. I barely have a scar from the surgery either - so A+ marks for surgical finishing touches.
I have had a mostly positive experience with Dr. Mahalingham. She is strongly set in her own ideas about problem solving, but did me the courtesy of respecting my wishes when choosing the best course of action. I will be trusting her with doing a Laproscopic Hysterectomy.
WHile I a m glad to see that people had a great experience her, I am as well very surpirsed, as I had a horrid experience with her, just after almost dying from a botched birthing. Rude, arrogant, self-centered, and throwing aa diagnostic at me whitout even examining me, that had nothing to do with my condition, and that physical examination proved wrong. A traumatic experience I wish not to experience again.
The better of the ob-gyns at the Isis clinic. When she has the time she is great at answering questions, being compassionate and showing care. However, a lot appears to be talk and not much action. As well, since you are always left waiting at this clinic and usually only allotted 5 mins with the physician attentiative care is rarely provided. Always becomes rushed and not thorough.
Because I am not pregnant I would be kept waiting up to 3 hours after my appointment time to be seen. She was nice enough but when asked about permanent birth control options she was like "honey every woman wants babies. It's a woman's place to have babies". If you aren't pregnant, plan to get pregnant or already have kids you are nothing in her eyes. Wouldn't treat my severe PCOS or do anything about my endrometriosis.
