Ratings for Dr. Jessica McNabb
Just got out of emergency 6 hours with Dr. McNabb. She was amazing. Not sure what the complaints were about. She was clearly thorough, respectfull and knowledgable, but also no nonsense. the emerg was bursting and she was run off her feet but I observed her being very patient with everyone. She did ask a few times if I was taking any meds, or drugs. She needs to know if there's any chance a patient is taking anything that might exacerbate a condition. I wasn't taking anything, but had I been, I felt her only reason for inquiring vigorously was so she could treat me thoroughly. I wish she were my family doctor.
I was shocked to read the rating below referring to a condescending, judgemental MD. No doubt the worst MD in my almost 60 years of existence. Rude and Disrespectful are understatements and her attitude would not be welcome by any patient, much less one attending for an emergency. She has a chip on her shoulder and during my 1hr plus checked into the Emergency ward I observed her distain for patients and staff in general but I sensed more so for MEN. This person has issues, no doubt. Should I be unfortunate enough to have to cross paths with McNabb, I will refuse communication and treatment.
Had the unfortunate experience of crossing paths with this doctor. She gave me a long, repetitive lecture about pain medication as if I was both stupid and drug seeking. (After I'd explained to her that I was told by the surgeon on call to seek medical help for severe post-op pain at the ER.) This doctor did most of the lecturing in the waiting room, giving NO thought to patient privacy. As I was leaving, she told me next time to have my pain pills in my bag to prove I "wasn't selling them out on the street." I DID have my pills in my purse-she never asked to see them. Her whole interaction with me was incredibly RUDE, judgemental and disrespectful. It made the entire situation worse, which was the last thing I needed. If I ever run into her at RCH again, I will insist on being treated by another doctor. Her people skills leave A LOT to be desired.
Dr McNabb was incredibly helpful in finding out what was wrong with me, after having been in the emergency ward three times in 48 hours. She called in specialists until they found the problem. She just did not give up until they figured it out.
