Ratings for Dr. Fiona McConville
Dr. Mcconville is fantastic, informative and very patient! Her staff, Sue and Diana, are a hoot and also help put you at ease. I have never felt uncomfortable woth anyone in there and I'm at the end of my pregnancy. I would highly recommend her!
I was suffering with extremely low iron levels due to my heavy periods, even went through iron injections. Dr was very pushy with IUD treatment that I was absolutely against, she is rude and will not take no for a answer. Don't let her push you into something you do not wish to have. She also told me to go for prolapse therapy instead of taking care of the real problem. Please stay away from her and her rude raunchy staff.
Dr. McConville is simply the most amazing doctor. She is caring and attentive. I had every pregnancy complication in the book, and she helped me through a difficult 9 months. I honestly think if I didn't have her I would have lost my baby. Instead, she gave me hope and guidance and even was there to deliver my child, 4 weeks early, with more complications at the end. Not only is she an amazing, beautiful person, she is knowledgeable, skilled and so competent. I couldn't imagine anyone better.
I am a diffcult case to treat and Dr Mcconville/Sue/Diane have all taken such good care of me. I can NOT speak higher of these ladies. I have never met a doctor who cares so much about her patients. I am very lucky to have her as my gynecologist. She awesome !!
After much research, I choose Dr. Mcconville based on reviews. My personal experience was outstanding . The staff ( Sue and Diane) LOVE their job and always are attentive and smiling. Dr. Mcconville is very knowledgeable and friendly. Yes the visits are short and to the point but that is how she keeps the wait times down. I have had no complication pregnancies so I was always in and out of that office within half an hour TOTAL! Will return for any future pregnancy.
I am a little confused by the comments left below. I am a patient of Dr.McConville's and have been for several years. She and her staff have been nothing but patient and attentive to all of my needs and multiple questions. I have never felt rushed or "brushed off" by anyone in that office. What confuses me, is that the patient who left a review below, seems to have had a good experience with a great OB, and then chosen to transfer care to someone else, and now seems disgruntled that she cannot have TWO Doctors at the same time?? I too have had many questions and concerns but have always found the staff at Dr.McConville's to be more than willing to answer all of my questions. My advise to anyone looking to choose an OB by reading RateMd's reviews is to always take what is printed here with a grain of salt and consider that some people will never be happy no matter how much is done for them. I would recommend Dr.McConville to all of my friends and family. She is an exceptional Doctor, and a Lovely person!!
Here's the good and the bad. The staff and Dr. McConville are very friendly, energetic, and there seems to be a great morale within the office. They were kind enough to fit me in when I first found out I was pregnant even when I asked to be seen earlier than normal. Every visit has been punctual. Dr. McConville has great online reviews and is highly recommended within her community. My disappointment lies in the lack time for personal attention and always feeling like I am the high maintenance patient for wanting more information. I openly admit I am a fairly over zealous google user and get myself nervous about different medical complications I read about as this is my first pregnancy. This is partly though because the office advises not to use "Dr. Google" but keeps appts at 2.5 mins long (how do you do, pee on a stick, BP, weight, doppler, and goodbye with a smile) due to volume and there is no preemptive information given so you are left with Baby Bump apps and What to Expect as your experts. When I went to book prenatal classes Ajax didn't have sufficient dates available so I went to Centenary which I learned has a much newer and superior delivery ward than Ajax. (Advice - both locations book up fast so book at least 2 months beforehand). Since learning that Dr. McConville may not be around in the summer and you are not guaranteed your O.B. but instead anyone from "the team" I opted to switch to Centenary which means a new O.B. since she does not have privileges there. Dr. McConville agreed to see me one more time (for 35 week check) then switch, however, when the new Dr.’s appt came along they just cancelled my appt with their office telling me "there is no need to come here any longer as the new Dr. can see you right away." I protested and was told "no, we are pretty booked and busy anyway so there is no need for you to come here.” File closed. Therefore not honouring the conversation I had with Dr. McConville and completely brushing me off. My advice is if you can, go with a midwife, a service that is completely covered by OHIP. You will get more one on one time (by this I mean up to 20-40 min appts if necessary), nutrition information, some visit your home, breastfeeding help and post delivery attention. I believe as the O.B. service is obviously inundated and over saturated by the populous patient base, lets ease the load and only use them for complications that midwives are not trained to deal with. Final remark is Dr. McConville seems to be a good O.B. should you go this route, please keep in mind she likely will not deliver your baby as it falls on whichever O.B. is on call, but again, this is standard practice anywhere you go. Try to get a midwife! This will be my advice to all my friends, blog, mommy groups, and as I happen to work with preschoolers - all the moms I encounter for their next pregnancy. Wish me luck for a better experience at the new O.B.s office :/
Sometimes the wait is long in the office but she is busy because everyone wants to see her. Its worth the wait. She delivered my son via emergency csection she was very calm and genuinely caring and I will be going back to her for my second baby!
