Ratings for Dr. Robert Tremaine
I had the pleasure of seeing Dr Tremaine a couple of years ago. He was friendly with a good sense of humor. I been referred by a doctor at the Cobequid as a follow up for an issue with my face but he also took the time to assess a rash I had developed on my hand. The cream he prescribed worked immediately. Anne Marie at reception was also very helpful and friendly. Overall, a very positive experience!
I was referred to Dr Tremaine in July for a skin rash that I got after using(improperly) topical steroid cream. He welcomed me into his office and immediately sat in front of his computer screen. He turned to me and announced "I see you have nummular dermatitis". I said well I came to you to get a diagnosis not for you to regurgitate someone else's diagnosis. From 10 ft away he looked at my legs and said, "Oh yes that is nummular dermatitis". He NEVER looked at the rest of my skin and NEVER looked at any up close. He wanted to put me back on steroid cream so I immediately got to my feet to leave and said no way I would use more poison steroid. His comment? Oh so you are like the heart patient who refuses his medication. What a jerk! When I told him I had NEVER had any skin rash till I used steroid cream he then added. "Oh c'mon now you must have had something". So essentially he called me either a liar or a nut. He is a jerk. If YOU or anyone you know is using steroid cream for heaven sake check a site called www.itsan.org. Doctors are supposed to be men/women of science and men of science have open minds. Tremaine's mind is closed. He is a danger.
Excellent doctor and great person. Very kind, compassionate and knows his stuff. Personable and never makes you feel rushed even though he is a very busy guy! The wait time for an appointment can be long but he's well worth the wait. Would recommend him to anyone
A consummate professional. Highly knowledgeable about recent literature and treatment options. He also has an excellent bedside manner, listens with real interest and empathy. Instantly recommended a treatment for my 30+ years of acne that has literally transformed my skin. As others have said here, Dr. Tremaine is that rare breed of physician who combines solid scientific knowledge and clinical experience with a truly humane approach. A wonderful doctor!
Have been a patient of Dr. T's for about 23 years and he has diagnosed me accurately, suggested treatment that work's for me and when I asked about other treatments that I thought would work he explained why it wasn't a good idea in my case. He is worth the wait.
