Ratings for Dr. Kathleen Davis
The worse doctor ever, she only cares about herself, she walks in and proceed to complaining about her problems, not even care why the patient is here. Her wait time is 3hrs minimum, if lucky you'd get in a lot faster but usually you don't. Treats the receptionist the worse like doesn't even care.
This doctor is always late. LATE LATE LATE! 3 hours wait time is the norm. I waited 2 1/2 hours to see her the last time I went. When I finally got in to see her, she acted like a QUAK and I was told she ran out of time for me in the appointment and I had to leave her office without the needle I went for in the first place. Treatment was so close and yet so far. So I rescheduled the appointment for the needle for another day, went and waited 2 hours, and left without being seen. Terrible doctor. She made her assistant work her lunch hour and instructed her patients not to bother her during this time. There were 8 of us waiting with two people ahead of me at that point. So over a period of 6 weeks and 2 appointments, my arthritic knee remains untreated. I think the Canadian Medical Association should be notified about this doctor's practices. I also think that patients should be allowed to charge doctors for excessively long wait times. My time is valuable too. If they can charge for no shows at $120.00 a pop, why can't we charge them lost wages for our time waiting in her office. I will be calling the Canadian Medical Association to complain about this doctor and I highly encourage you to do the same.
I just got referred to this rheumatologist. Came on here to see she has a 2.7 out of 5 rating. with many comments saying saying she's rude and doesn't listen to patients. The five star ratings she has are rather canned, making one skeptical that they're legitimate. The bad ones appear detailed and specific. Nevertheless, I'll take these all with a grain of salt and hope for the best. However, I find it discouraging that I may have to wait a few months to get an appointment with her only to not be listened to and then have to go back to my doctor to get referred to another rheumatologist. While this is a great site to come and get a general consensus about a doctor, I would hope that patients also contact The College of Physicians and Surgeons Ontario which allows you submit complaints about doctors/specialists, which is a more formal channel.
Dr. Davis was amazing. I have been suffering from chronic pain and fatigue for years and she was extremely thorough in her examination and took the time to answer all my questions. The only reason she keeps her patients waiting as mentioned in other posts is because she doesn't rush her patients and takes the time necessary to care for them properly. I didn't mind waiting an hour past my appointment time knowing it was because she was being kind and showing empathy to the clients who were next to me in the waiting room who clearly had pain and severe symptoms. Patients is a virtue and required if you want to see a good doctor who doesn't rush through appointments making the patient feel like she has someone more important waiting! I so appreciated meeting her and finally getting the help I needed.
My expecation was not good after reading the reviews. She was the best and most caring doctor i have ever met. The readon she is late is because she takes her time with her penitents and cares so much. She is not rude but has a special characteristic. Overal very happy
My mom's family doctor referred her to dr. Davis because my mom started to experience great pain all over her body and is also suffering from an old fracture on her foot. When we went to Dr. Davis she made us wait for over an hour without having any patients inside, I was so late for work I had to call in and say I couldn't make it. My mom was complaining about all the pain and all the doctor was doing is filling information on her computer. She said to my mom she has to do and x-ray on her knees and foot, and she said we have to reschedule an appointment because she was done her shift for the day!! Are you serious she only saw us for 10 mins!? When we went out her secretary had already gone home so we had to call to get an appointment again. After my mom did her x-ray the secretary called saying the results and that my mom's fracture is worse, I told her what is the solution to this she said I don't know, doctor davis said to tell you the results and she can see you for an appointment 4 weeks from now after she is back from her vacation. Worst exprience with a doctor. Don't go to this doctor.
She should retire, nothing positive to say about this doctor, we have to call another specialist about a question she need answer,. Go figure!! The less time we wait to see her was about 1.5 hours and this was her first apt of the day. Most wait time are over 2:00 hrs.
Secretary tries her best. Consistently wait more than an hour to see her while she leisurely takes breaks whenever she pleases ignoring her waiting room full of patients. Talks about herself 90% of the appointment and goes off on useless tangents blowing smoke up her own butt. Only was willing to do 1 blood test and wouldn't provide a firm diagnosis. Started one appointment telling me about support groups for lupus and treatment of lupus but would not actually confirm a diagnosis of lupus, told me she could not diagnose me. Became condescending when I asked whether or not I have lupus and avoided answering. Yet she told me she marked me in the health care system as having a positive lupus diagnosis and warned me about trying to get insurance due to it. So she refused to diagnose me but decided to mark me as having lupus for the government. Horrible beside manner. Rude and condescending, didn't take the time to even review my chart and tests before coming in. Refused to treat my pain because I "don't look sick" and told me to "just deal with it and come back in a year". When I said I felt uncomfortable taking acetaminophen due to the effects on the liver she made incredibly ignorant and off topic comments about people attempting suicide via acetaminophen overdose being "attention seekers" and "not really depressed". Absolutely horrible doctor, would NOT recommend, save your time!
This doctor is rude, like she only cares about herself not the patient, i dont know why she is even a doctor. It's about time she retire! She is always late even if her sign says 15 mins appt. She even yells at her staff for her wrong doing.
