Ratings for Dr. Elizabeth Samson
She fired my young children and I in the middle of cold and flu season without warning when I had asked her to write a letter for my work. At the time I had just moved to area with my two young children. My son was experiencing a lot of ear infections and I was under a lot of stress due to a custody battle I was going through with my ex-husband and she warned me not to get her involved. Next thing I know we are getting fired without warning or references. Not very professional in my opinion.
Dr. Samson has been our family doctor for years. She is the best doctor we have ever had. She is blunt at times, and we appreciate that. She has referred us on to specialists, consoled us when needed and gave practical advice. She has even called to follow up after procedures. We are very lucky to have her in Courtice. Susan at the desk is amazing as well! So kind and great with the whole family.
My family has been a patient of Dr. Samson since she arrived in Courtice. She's the best. I have never once felt like I was "just a number" and she always has my families best interest first...even if it's sometimes hard for me to hear. ..and to be quite honest in my cases she is usually right where I have went back and heard the old "i told you so". I actually had a wrong doctor once...and that's not fun!! Love the staff and love my experiences with her and Susan!!
My family went to Dr Samson for 8 years. As time went by and my kids got older, they would beg me to take them to a walk-in and not to her. This week I went to see her with one of my kids. To say she was ignorant to me, would be kind. She said we have a virus. Two days later I'm back at a walk-in with a diagnosis of Bronchitis. I don't trust her. I believe her huge ego is in the way. I decided to fire her as a doctor. I will miss Susan at the front though!
I am not sure who these other people are but she has been my family Doctor for over 10 years and is best Doctor I have ever had. By the way to the guy saying she would not give him a note to go off work for a cold (which is ridiculous that you would even ask for it) - yellow mucus is not a problem its when its green. She is always very thorough and will make necessary referrals when she does not know the answer or to have a specialist follow up with certain problems. Maybe the negative people should grow a thicker skin...just sayin.
Dr Elizabeth Samson is the RUDEST doctor I have ever seen. Her nasty, harsh words to not make a sick person feel even a bit better. Her harsh tones and body language make you feel guilty for asking and the fact that she never even looks at you while talking shows her lack of concern! I will be making a complaint about her with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and telling everyone I know of my experience to warn them and keep them away from this unprofessional and nasty doctor! I don't know how or why she is in this profession. She should be a jail guard!
Susan the receptionist is an amazing woman. However Elizabeth is not. Rude, unprofessional, I could go on. After my most recent appointment I was so disgusted with her behaviour that I will be reporting her the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. I do not suggest this doctor at all. Stay away.
Dr. Samson can be rough around the edges, but I think she probes and asks questions in a manner that is geared to getting to the root of the problem as opposed to band aids. She has been my family dr for 7 years and has been always upfront and very forte coming with information and resources.
