Ratings for Dr. Kathleen Bell-Irving
STAY AWAY! Speaking on behalf of a collection of North Shore Health professionals who have had the displeasure of working with KBI over the past 20 years, we are advising anyone looking for a caring physician to keep looking. Kathleen Bell-Irving is a rigid, self-serving, and generally unpleasant person. She is frequently disrespectful to her colleagues down right rude to both patients and their families. All this could even be forgiven if she was a good doctor, but she does not take the time to listen to her patients or their spouses and pushes unnecessary drugs.
WARNING TO ALL !Dr. Bell-Irving is very unprofessional! She uses the elderyl for her own gain. While my mother was under Bell-Irving's care, she was prescribed medications that destroyed her mental state ( one of the drugs were specifically only used for parkinsons disease which was not an illness my mother had) Not only that, but Ms. Bell-Irving has a way with only writing about family members instead of dealing with her current patient. Bell-Irving recieves payments for her visits and now looking at hindsight is the reason why she didnt refer my mother to a professional geriatric doctor since my mother has an illness requiring more attention, instead she did not and kept drugging my mother with a coctail of meds and continued to meddle with the family's affairs. I think she should be checked and be stripped of her license. Nobody should ever take advantage of the elderly!
She has been very responsive and caring to both my parents and available whenever we need her and excellent in an emergency situation. She has given our family much needed peace of mind. Without her care my mother would be institutionalized. We are very thankful.
Highly disappointed with this "professional", a totally self-serving, drug pusher who prefers to write prescriptions when basic natural offerings would do the trick. Charges for home visits in her private practice to the tune of $3600 a year, then bills MSP over $200K and who know what the pharma kick-backs amount to? Old school out of touch and a parasite of the elderly.
I feel this doctor plays a part in having demented elders removed from loving family members only to have them placed in incompetent care of certain private care companies that charge astronomical fees. Seems to be more buisness interested rather than interested in the care of the elderly.
