Ratings for Dr. Brad Bahler
I've had nothing but great experiences with Dr. Bahler. He has been with me throughout both of my pregnancies. He always takes the time to answer any questions I have, and actually listens to what I have to say. I've never felt like I've been rushed and he's never made me feel silly for asking questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking!
Called the Sylvan Lake clinic at the end of the day to get the results from a biopsy. The usual doctor was away on holidays. Doctor Bahler substituted to give the bad news, that the tumour was cancerous. A question was asked "what does a grade 4 tumour mean?" and Doctor Bahler responded: "It's 5 pm, I don't have time to get into that." Rude, disinterested and lacking in the basic humanity required to be a General Practitioner in my opinion.
Brad Bahler was my doctor for all 3 of my pregnancies. He was caring, polite, and listened to me. He has wonderful bedside manner and was really relaxed and easy going. He will continue to be our family doctor. He answered any questions I had and was very thorough. I HIGHLY recommend him as a doctor. Also, he doesnt just push pills on you...he trys to find a solution without just writing a prescripton to get you out of his hair. He actually cares!
DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!! He is the WORST EVER!!! He rolled his eyes at me when I asked for a specific test. Wants to get you out of his office as fast a possible. If you explain what is wrong with you he acts as though your full of crap. When asking questions about a condition I had he did not do a good job explaining it and told me to wait for the specialist to answer them. When I asked him that I wanted to pick my specialist he was offended. Does not seem as though he wants to be at work almost like he hates his job. He is good if your going to him for the common cold, but if it is for something serious or an actual illness RUN!!! The negative comments below are VERY true!! I never believed them until I had a bad experience.
Dr. Bahler has been my family and prenatal doctor for both of my pregnancies. He always takes time to listen to any and all of my concerns even if it takes up a lot of extra time. He is very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. He also delivered both of my children and listened to my concerns about the pregnancies and birth, and I had the best birth experience I feel I could of had because he was so supportive. he is a pretty mellow doctor which is refreshing, I don't feel rushed or embarassed when my daughters or I go to him with a problem. He also seems very natural and likes to try other methods of fixing problems instead of pushing a prescription on you. He was very supportive of my natural birth plan, and has gone out of his way to get better dates for ultrasounds and other appointments for my family. I highly recommend this doctor. Also the nurses are all extremely nice and I can usually also make an appointment for the same or next day I call.
