Ratings for Dr. Brian Gregory
I went to this doctor many years ago and was traumatized by the experience. It felt like I stepped into 1975, the carpet was old and the stacks of files in the hallways made me wonder about general hygiene of the place. I don't remember the receptionist that everyone is ragging on, I was more perplexed by the dismissive nature of the doctor and how he said "basically your skin is dying so what do you expect?" as he sort of glanced me over. (I was there for moles that could be cancerous) for the time he took to look - it didnt seem thorough and his broken record about age and the state of my skin was just what it was old and breaking down...I was probably about 42 years old at the time. I didn't feel well taken care of.
Dr. Gregory is nice but glib. He did remove a malignant mole (melanoma) but at the request of my GP. Very relaxed delivering bad news, which is nice. He takes a few minutes to look you over. I have been going for an annual check up for years and now know - compared to other derms he skips a lot of places (between the toes, and other more intimate areas), which he shouldn't if you have a history of melanoma. Also my other doctor pushed for more follow up because of my history. He really is just putting in hours. Meanwhile, his receptionist is THE WORST. A total B&*@@#. And she's been there forever. She is for sure the worst receptionist in my old life's experience of doctors, walk in clinics, hospitals, dentists and even government programs. She does not try one teeny, tiny bit and is happy to cancel an appointment and charge you for it.
My Dad had an appointment with Dr. Gregory today. He is dealing with a skin condition that causes bruising and bleeding under the skin when he touches or scratches it. It affects his whole body including his face. Our family doctor recommended Dr. Gregory as a skin specialist that could help my Dad figure out the underlining cause of this problem and hopefully find something that can help. We waited for close to a year to see him, however when the time came, Dr. Gregory gave my Dad NO advice or help. He stepped into the office looked at my dad once, didn't even do a close examination and told him that he is "old" and this is "normal" and then left. My Dad isn't even 60 yet! He was with my Dad for under 5 minutes and did not allow him to ask questions. This is an unacceptable answer, unacceptable behaviour, and I am extremely disappointed and obviously scared for my Dad and this crazy skin problem. We are just looking for answers and a bit of help to understand what is happening. If anyone is old it's Dr. Gregory and it seems like he is lazy, ready for retirement and could care less about his patients who have waited so long for help. We have also complained to our family doctor so I hope she never sends anyone looking for serious help to this guy, you will not find it here!
Dr. Gegory is just lovely and knowledgeable but his receptionist Carol, is just horrid in person. Yes she's dry but when entering an office and greeting someone with the usual, "Can I help you," she doesn't need to be so rude when the first thing you say is how you have an appointment and you don't even get to say your name before she makes you feel like an idiot for not saying your name. Sorry. Next time I should just step in and say my name like you place your order with the soup na*I on Seinfeld. Note I had to edit that to post.
Never had an issue at Dr.Gregorys office. It takes a moment to realize that Dr. Gregory is a very funny guy because I didnt understand dry humour - I thought he was kinda standoffish- but that is so far from the truth!!! He is lovely! He treated my sunspots & minor acne with great ease!
By far, the rudest receptionist/medial assistant I have ever spoken to. Dr. Gregory is fantastic and given the reviews below and my personal experience I would suggest his Assistant needs a new position elsewhere... preferably somewhere she doesn't interact with people!
I have been seeing Dr Gregory for many years. He is keeping my rosacea under good control. Neither he, nor his receptionist are rude. They are straightforward, helpful and efficient. I believe they both have a "dry" sense of humour which may be interpreted by some as rudeness. I find the receptionist very accommodating, regarding appointments. We even joke together!
Dr. Gregory I found to be every professional, highly knowlwdgeable, and very agreeable to questions. His medical assistant was very nice and easy going although when I called to confirm my appointment, she hung up the phone without saying goodbye. Minor compared to all the nasty things the majority of reviewers are posting about her. Perhaps he did get a new assistant.
