Ratings for Dr. David Fields
Dr. Fields is extremely thorough. He takes the necessary time to listen to me and is very careful with reviewing and adjusting my medications. He does not hesitate to refer me for necessary tests and specialist appointments and clearly explains the results. His students/residents all speak highly of him and his interaction with them in my presence is respectful and informative. He is the best and I hope he will be my physician until the end of my days!
Dr. Fields is an incredibly attentative doctor. He never rushes appointments and always listens to everything that is going on. He often has resident doctors which he is doing a great job with, I've found Dr. Fields to be an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Dr. Fields is the best GP I have ever had. He is kind, considerate, always willing to listen and even though this means he takes longer with patients that need it (including myself) it is so appreciated, so i don't mind the wait. He makes sure I get all the tests done that I need unlike my previous GP who just kept pushing the pills on me and increasing the doses constantly. We are so lucky to have a doctor of his caliber in Edmonton.
Punctuality is the only blemish and it is a byproduct of the system, not this individual doctor. He's been a real gem of a find in the world of family doctors. Great listener, takes you serious and leaves no stone unturned. He'll make sure you get the tests and help you need. Seems like a great guy too.
Dr. Fields is so great! Very thorough yet doesn't push unnecessary tests or medications. He always listens to my concerns and is very respectful. I usually only have to book a week in advance for my regular check ups, and for urgent matters, there's usually a doctor on staff that can see me right away if he's unavailable. His staff is very nice as well!
When Dr. Fields moved to Edmonton from GP, that didn't stop my mother and I from keeping him as our family doctor. I've been going to him for over 15 years and I can't begin to describe how thorough & professional he is. He's not just going to throw a bottle of penicillin at you hoping that that will solve the issue, he legitimately gets to the bottom of whatever is ailing you. When he was still in GP I even called the office late one night just to leave a voicemail to book an appointment and he picked up the phone and discussed the issue I was having with me, he is beyond the best doctor I've ever had - I believe he's one of the best doctors in Canada.
I have had many, many doctors in my life and Dr. Fields is hands down the most thorough and empathetic. He does full visits and gets all of your history, and when making referrals, always tries to get you to the best doctors. He is open to hearing outside ideas and doesn't get offended if you say you were doing research online. I had a condition that was misdiagnosed my numerous specialists for over 20 years that he figured out on my first visit. I have nothing but good things to say about his skills and how he treats his patients.
