Ratings for Dr. James MacLachlan
Took 20 minutes to complete a verbal history. Did not adequetly assess presenting complaint. Proceded to physical exam and was rude. Exam ended due to time constraints with no diagnosis. Will not be returning to see him at the Pictou Walk in Clinic.
Met Dr. MacLachlan not long ago at a outpatient clinic with my 5 year old son. I have to say he is probably the best Dr I have encountered. My son was having recurrent ear infections, and was suffering. Dr MacLachlan, made sure he had a medication that would actually do the job, on top of an antibiotic. he even called the pharmacy to see what he had been given in the past, and gave him something different. Wonderful Man, great with kids, and funny to boot :)
Dr. MacLaughlin's light-hearted character helps make my visits enjoyable. Although light-hearted, he is also very to-the-point, which I value in a family doctor. He is also up to date with current meds and practices. I am pleased with his services.
Doctor Mac is one of the best doctors I have ever had! He is very warm and caring and also very smart and up to date! He also seems to be a very gentle soul and is very kind and thoughful with my elderly mother! He is a doctor you can talk to and know that he will understand. He doesn't patronize or talk down to you and is also very thorough! An all around lovely doctor!
This doctor is very knowledgeable and has helped a lot but on the other hand I found that the way he spoke to me was very insulting and made me feel rather stupid. I went to him with problems and for quite a long time he overlooked them, said that we needed to take of other things first. Now I have more problems !!!!!
