Ratings for Dr. Marc Engfield
I saw Dr. Engfield 12 years ago in the Hull (Gatineau) emergency. I was hospitalised for an acute pencreantitis at 19. He has been so curious about my case since about 1, I was very Young for an acute pencreantitis, but also because what was causing it was my triglycerides that were at 42 (normal is Under 1.8). He was very kind, he tried very hard to speak to me in french even after I told him it was ok for him to speak to me in English. He also kept bending over in half (considering how tall he is) to speak to me since I could not sit up in my bed because of the pain and I was on pretty strong pain killers. When I was doing a bit better, he brought me a whole bunch of documentation on what to do to minimise my chances of having another acute pancreatitis. I thought he was very compassionate and I really appreciated all the care he gave me.
I saw Dr. Engfield for approximately a year and a half. In that time he kept upping my pain medication, opiods, to an astronomical amount. When I got habituated to the drugs, he kicked me out of his practice without even hearing what my experience was. He has I'm God syndrome, does not take ANY responsibility for his role in getting people addicted to opiods. I have now been working for 2 years to recover from this awful experience. He is, like someone said, a drug pusher , with a medical licence. I guess he's left the pain treatment field, by looking at this post. I wish I never saw this Dr. ..worst experience of my life.
I have been a patient of Dr. Engfield to a few years for chronic pain and am going to echo what most here have sai. He is a kind doctor who truly wants his patients to succeed. Even when we have had a conflict of opinion, he always look time to listen and give thoughtful, gentle feedback. I gave 4 for punctuality because appointments are sometimes a little late, but I that is because he is so invested in his patients and spends time to answer questions and
Dr. Engfield has been my doctor for exactly 3 years now....I know because my first appointment with him made such an impact on me. Initially, I was very hesitant about going but my husband was hopeful and asked that I give Dr. Engfield a chance, that maybe he could help, and that maybe he would be different....so I went. I'm now "forced" to say my husband was right. Aside from pain issues, I also have a lot of difficulty going to see male doctors, any male doctor, for any reason, but Dr. Engfield's personality, and his genuine kindness and compassion, shattered all walls of fear I initially walked in with, allowing me to quickly feel safe and secure, That's not an easy task with me. Early on I felt I connected easily with Dr. Engfield, and throughout the years he has shown himself to be very knowledgable, thorough & patient with me. He has attacked my pain from different angles...sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but always there's thoughtful effort and empathy.. For me to walk away from my appointments feeling understood, listened to, & believed...those are gifts you just don't find everywhere, and in the world of chronic pain, especially these days, that's pretty special. Dr. Engfield has been dedicated and determined in his efforts in helping me find safe, effective methods of pain relief. Given that my pain will be a permanent fixture in my life, I often tease him about growing old together...although I'm not really teasing,...in all seriousness...the honest truth is I'd be totally lost without him. I find him to be one of the most genuine, caring, dedicated doctors I've ever had, and I know that I'm damned lucky to be in his care...."care" being the key word! His sense of humour is always refreshing and appreciated, brightening even my darkest days, and he's the one person who shows up every week to help me deal with my pain. To say I'm grateful is an understatement, The staff are friendly, professional, and caring....who could ask for more! Dr. Engfield, if you're reading this, I want to thank you for everything you do, and for being the kind, caring, gentle, careful person you are. Please...don't ever change! You're a gifted doctor and I appreciate you very much. Many thanks from the bottom of my heart, Charlotte G
Caution with him, he will fire you and call the cops on you and have you arrested if you break opiod contract. He is a horrible doctor. He will fire u without warning and throw you on methadone. Be careful!!!!!! His staff write the nice comments. All fake
