Ratings for Dr. Wendy Dawson
Dr. Wendy Dawson is an excellent physician, perhaps the most compassionate, caring physician I have yet encountered and I have seen a fair number over my nursing career. I have yet to see aphysician so thorough and considerate of her patient's needs, she routinely has gone the extra mile,, calling me herself with lab or test results often well into the evening hours. I'm thankful she has found an equally gifted colleague to job share with her as much as Imiss her availability. It's only the truly exceptional docs that burn out because they are so intensely involved with their patients and don't have the personal insight to let go of part of a highly demanding practice. Dr. Wendy Dawson, as a physician and person has my total respect and appreciation.
I am sad to write this but Dr. Dawson is a physician who 18 years ago was very good but is no longer. A number a years ago she cut her practice in half due to, what I believe, was burnout. Unfortunately nothing has changed with her. She is extremely distractible, has trouble concentrating, is very slow in being able to process what you say and then put in in her computer. She would get angry at me if I talked too fast for her to process. She has trouble counting out the correct amount of meds you need. If you a physical and have any concerns at all be prepared for a very,very long time of being in there, she would actually get mad at me when my physical took too long and yet it was not my doing. She no longer has my trust and confidence and I definitely would NOT recommend having her as my GP anymore. Sad to say I think she needs to retire or else work in some medical field where patients health are not involved. I'm scared she is going to make a mistake and kill someone one of these days. Forgive give the bluntness but she really scares me. As a previous person said if you're just going with an infection or broken bone or something she may be okay but nothing of any depth. SSSOOO SSSAAADD.
I have spent over 10 years with Dr. Dawson and frankly she is so lacking knowledge it is pathetic. If you just want someone to treat your cold or catch your babies she would be adequate. However she lacks confidence, skill andhates doing paperwork such as doing a referral. I have had sooo many specialists who have told me directly that I need to get a new doctor it isn't funny just based on referal letters that she has written. I have heard so much whining and complaining from her during MY appt. about how much work she has to do that I finally said to her that she needs to suck it up or quit. This is her second run in the medical field having not found her niche then decided to go to med school. In the mean time I am stuck with her it seems due to the lack of drs in the area that I need knowledge in. God help us.
Dr Dawson is amazing ..I started seeing her in my teens and now 3 kids later we all see her.She is very compasionate and her bedside manner is impecable. She takes your concerns very seriously and I will continue to reccomed her to friends and family.
Dr. Dawson is amazing. She is always present when discussing my health concerns. I know she is very busy but she never acts rushed. Dr. Dawson is truley a gift to the medical profession. She could teach a course on how to be kind. She truly exemplifies a great person and doctor. I feel blessed to be her patient.
