Ratings for Dr. Cynthia Osborne
Had an unfortunate appointment with Dr. Osborne as she was covering for my reg. family DR. She was rude, sarcastic and made me feel like I was wasting her time. She asked me one question" why I was there" and told me there was nothing wrong with me, appointment lasted less then 2 minutes - would never recommend her to anyone and will be making a formal complaint to my reg. DR.
quite possibly the rudest doctor I have ever met. Treated with immediate disrespect and talked down too and criticized. I actually couldn't believe it. People don't wait long periods to be treated like that. If you don't like your job, don't do it. Such an attitude. Tried describing my issues and how I felt and completely disregarded them and kept sighing and huffing at me saying I was fine. Smarten up dr. Osborne! my advice! :)
My main concern with Dr.Osborne is her mannerism during an appointment which is usually quite abrupt and somewhat unwelcoming at first contact during the beginning of a visit. Her mood will definitely become more upbeat once she determines that the visit is really needed, than she becomes quite concerned,focused and even compassionate on the issue at hand. The problem is how uneasy she makes you feel when your trying to explain your concerns. She is an extremely smart and energetic doctor but overall seems quite frustrated with the medical system and things in general with even a slight tinge of anger thrown in for good measure. I just wish she was a little more friendly during appointments as she makes me feel very uneasy and rushed, almost like the whole appointment is a major imposition on her time. Its too bad because I can tell she has a great work ethic and really cares about diagnosing things correctly.
She asked me if I believed in "God" old me I should believe, and argued against evolution to me when I went in for a referral for a mental health expert. Unprofessional and inappropriate for Medical Dr. If I wanted "god", I would have seen a theologian.
We moved to London in 2008 and found that Dr. Osborne was accepting new patients. I'm not sure why. Always wait about 30 to 60 minutes to see her. When you actually see her, she is very rushed, doesn't take the time to listen and get the entire story. Prefers to refer you to specialists rather than attempting to help herself. A few weeks ago, our son was very sick and we were told that it would 2 weeks before he could get an appointment! Why would a family doctor not have emergency appointments? So we took our son to the hospital where he was diagnosed with pneumonia. To top things off, the staff is grouchy and unhelpful.
