Ratings for Dr. Christopher Aldridge
I saw "Dr Aldridge in July 2017. I had to give up half my day to see this doctor who ended up being an hour late for my scheduled appointment. He came walking in with Tim Hortons and gold pinky ring on looking like a broke John Ghotti. So unprofessional, dressed like a bum shirt unbuttoned too low. I still had to wait to see him while he visited with other patients. FYI his office isn't very professional he talks so loud and his walls are paper thin I could literally hear him diagnosing his patient. I have suffered from shoulder and lower back pain from a car accident and was there for a second opinion. He was rude, didn't let me finish the my answers to his questions. Lied several times on a report he gave to my doctor when I clearly told him " I know you are to write a report and please be clear that my shoulder pain is primary and consistent". First sentence of the report he says my primary pain is my lower back.... he doesn't listen, has horrible beside manners. Insulted me!! This man is not a good doctor and is very unprofessional. Too bad I'm order to complete this review I have to give him at least 1 star in each category otherwise I'd give him nothing! He's by far the worst doctor I've seen!
By far the worst Dr I've ever had contact with..he was downright rude the moment he opened his mouth...I would warn anyone not to see this Dr...plus he's never on time..if your appointment is at one be prepared to wait over an hour for him to even show up...but most importantly he had the worst bedside manner I've ever had the displeasure to meet....never again...
Dr Chris Aldridge is a great GP. He keeps the exams short but covers all sorts of problems. I know that he has a heavy workload and that people who are in real pain are a priority as it should be. I do not expect him to take patients in order of appointments and I know he may be a little late (get your appoint for first thing in the morning or after lunch). Because of his specialty he saved me from a lot of pain. I went to him with shingles. He gave me some pills and they stopped all the pain within a couple of hours. I have talked to many other people who had the shingles and they suffered for several weeks. He has sent me to a lot of great specialist over the years and i appreciate that.
Christopher Aldridge is never on time if they make an appointment at 1 oclock you are lucky to see him at 2 o'clock he is rude beside manner of a skunk He dresses like a bum never changing his outfit never does a full physical for a women sends you everywhere else I guess he is scared to look examine a women
Dr Chris Aldridge is one of the worst doctors I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. He is rude he is unprofessional he is impatient. When I came to his office the first time he was completely sloppily dressed pants half off shirt untucked and improperly button. The second time I went to his office a few days later he was wearing the exact same outfit and was dressed in exactly the same sloppy manner. He Fire a rapid series of rude questions at me in a very frustrated manner accuse me of being a drug addict when I don't even take tylenol for a headache. Enclosing if you want to go to a doctor that makes you feel like an absolute piece of s*** about yourself for no reason go see Chris Aldridge. And to Chris Aldridge if you actually take the time out of your day to look at sites like this and to see what your patients are saying about you you conceited prick people come to you in a time of need people come to you when they're feeling vulnerable if you would like to remain in your practice for long and not have one of your patients beat you to death in your office you should probably work on your bedside manner. And for those of you who are reading this and think I'm overreacting take your time to scroll through some of the comments on this site take my advice if the doctor refer you to Dr Chris Aldridge tell him you refuse to go you want to see another doctor
I saw this Dr. recently after many years of chronic pain, and medication use (opioid)which was becomming ineffective. My initial impression was not the greatest as he is a bit gruff and perhaps a bit suspicious regarding opioid users (can you blame him really). If you are looking for friends you should probably look elsewhere, but as a doctor I thought he was quite good. He did a thourough exam, got a detailed history of my problems, and came up with a thoughtful plan. I think he really wanted to help and seemed to be compassionate regarding my situation. I did not find him judgemental or mean. If you are looking for a good doctor to help you with pain, I would recommend him.
I was seen by this GP for pain control input, not for any medication whatsoever. I recieve pain med from dr of 25 yrs. The word "pain" is an understatement for what I experience. I had high tolerence for pain before this. I can say without exageration that life could not continue with this going on in a body,death would occur as a result. I am a nurse and very familiar with all aspects regarding injury and illness in the human body.I took it upon myself to look for treatment in conjunction with meds as i have sustained firther injury to spine after car accident. The night before I saw this "doctor" I was kept awake from pain I assume is from a pulled muscle in lower back.I was extremely tired and pain had exhausted my mental acuity.I would have left immediately upon his first insulting statement that occured the second he opened his mouth. I sat in shock as the insults flew rapidly out of his mouth,he demanded I was a degenerate. COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS Patient WARNING

I was referred to Dr. Aldridge by my family doctor last year because of my severe fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Prior to my first appointment, I called his office assistant twice, and both times she was VERY pleasant and helpful. My 2 appointments with Dr. Aldridge were both excellent experiences. He is extremely thorough and takes the time during the first appointment to do a proper assessment. This doctor does not rush, he listens and responds accordingly. He validated my pain and understood the hell I am going through because of my illness. I did go see him for pain injections, which he did administer gently. Both he and his assistant were very understanding and made sure I was well taken care of afterwards. I was given a bottle of water and encouraged to rest for a few minutes. Unfortunately, I was unable to go back to see the good doctor because of other medical problems, but I intend on booking another appointment in the very near future. MC
