Ratings for Dr. Maureen Bakken
I too was nervous about the reviews I had read. But, being in the medical profession and dealing with many Dr. Gods I figured I could handle he! Boy was I surprised, she was lovely, professional and respectful of my budget. I appreciated that she did the injections herself. In the past I received tratments under the supervision of a plastic surgeon but treated by a nurse. I will definitely be back!!
Do not waste your time seeing this doctor. She has the worst manners I have ever witnessed. She did not take the time to answer my questions or what steps needed to be taken next after treatment was not working. She is rude and belittling, thinking that her time is better than yours. I will never go back to her as she made me feel like I was wasting her time
Dr. Maureen Bakken's response
In fairness to our patients and the Doctor our clinic policy is to consider legitimate complaints that are emailed and signed, not social media anonymous comments that may have little to no factual value. Please let us hear from you, as only by following the details of your chart can the clinic strive to correct and learn from the experience. Laser and Skin Care Medspa is an award winning clinic. It has recently won the 2016 and 2017 Consumer Choice Award for top dermatology clinic for Southern Alberta. By the time patients see Dr. Bakken they generally have seen other Doctors looking for answers and solutions to their skin problems. People are often testy and hypersensitive because of frustration over this process. Some days miracles don't happen and people are disappointed when the results of their visit come short of their expectations. -Clinic Manager

Excellent clinic. Professional doctor, and I appreciate her direct and procedural protocol. I dislike the long wait in the waiting room, but I now to book extra time for waiting. It's worth it, in the end.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We appreciate the recommendation. It's frustrating for us as well when we're running behind. We strive to be reasonably close to appointment times- some days pretty good, other days not so good. Dr. Bakken and Staff

Worst experience with a doctor of any kind. This so-called "professional" is condescending enough as a human being, nevermind a doctor. Save your time, save your money, save your patience; there are a lot of dermatologists out there, don't bother with this one.
I see Dr Bakken for injections of Botox and for Laser treatments on my face. I love her staff, who are always wonderful to deal with. I love Dr. Bakken. She is always kind and gentle when giving injections. I would recommend her to everyone.
I have been going for acne treatments for a while now and have seen such an improvement on my condition, thanks to Dr. Bakken and her staff for providing excellent products and advice. Dr. Bakken's straightforward remarks are not new to me, as a matter of fact it even helped me set my expectations straight. It is every after my quarterly check-ups with her that my condition keeps on improving; her prescriptions are beyond helpful. The staff have always been accommodating and helpful since day one, especially Bri-anne and Rayna. I'll aways appreciate the excellent service given to me by this clinic!
I've been searching for a GP and came across my dermatologist, I am shocked to see such slander. After using MLM skincare products and developing what I perceived to be cystic acne I was desperate for help...I had been on accutane when I was younger and was afraid that wherever I went they would try and put me on it, again. (It is not good for you, and did not agree with me) I was pleasantly surprised to have a straightforward Doctor who more or less told me to stop using garbage products, gave me a topical prescription and got me on the AHC treatments. I love the courtesy calls and friendless of the staff...I can't recall her name but the smaller brunette early 20's usually has a ponytail in, is always so friendly whenever my appointments are with her I always feel like I'm visiting with a friend! The treatments have improved my acne to being practically non- existent, they always check in with me while the treatment is happening to ensure my comfort. My back was the same if not worse than my face and that had mostly cleared up too! Since starting I have had a following visit with her where she recommended the pink mitt, increase exfoliation and changed my topical prescription so I can continue having the most effective treatment. Whenever my boyfriend has a pimple or face problem he always asks "Can I use your good stuff?" And I always say "YES, it will clear you right up!" I hope my review can serve as hope for those who are feeling overwhelmed with the cost of skin care...This AHC treatments are free and I am overall spending less money on skin care products than I was before. I have missed appointments twice unfortunately, one time in fall when I did not receive a call the day before a cluelessy forgot. Another time when my vehicle would not start and I couldn't make it. They were not rude, did not charge me and didn't bring it up when I finally was able to reschedule. Thank you! Thank you! -K.P
Very happy with my results Dr. Bakken is obviously a busy woman and doesn't have time to pussyfoot around people's sensitive emotions. Yes I have bad skin, I'm not offended to hear that obviously I know I'm there for help Everyone needs to grow a thicker skin seems like Staff was very nice and helpful And as far as product goes it makes all the difference having a good cleanser and cream. I saw a huge difference before even starting treatment .Also very well priced for makeup and cleanser no more than I've spent at drugstores
