Ratings for Dr. Judy Gillies
Dr. Gillies is very professional. She has a very busy practice as do all the doctors in Timmins. I dont think it is fair to criticize her for taking time off to be with her family to regroup and recharge. There are other doctors at the clinic who fill in during her absence. It is unreasonable to expect your doctor to know everything. She will refer you to a specialist if required. I am thankful I have a family physician and that i can talk to Dr. Gillies. I am sure there are patients who are challenging.
I agree with all of the negative comments expressed toward this doctor. She lacks respect for her patients. Unfortunately, I beleive that she is in the wrong profession. She books ONLY same day appointments whereby you need to call at 8:30 am and hope you get the line because by 8:45 all the slots are gone for that day. Then, if you do get an appointment, you better take part of the day off work because you will be in there waiting for hours to be seen. I once was given an appointment for first thing I the morning and was not seen until 11:00 am. I could go on and on but this confirms my concerns towards this doctor. Sad that we have to put up with doctors like this.
I saw this doctor recently and have heard some negative things in the past in terms of her lack of kindness and lack of professionalism. I don't judge people unless I have reason to. After spending 5 minutes with this doctor, it was clear she lacked the skills and qualities necessary to be a credible and well-respected doctor. I am glad to see I'm not the only one who feels this way. How unfortunate to have a doctor like this in our community. Good thing we have so many wonderful ones!
On numerous occasions I have waited 1.5 hours before seeing Dr. Gillies (even with an appointment). I find her to be rude and obnoxious at times. She makes she feel like I am wasting her time. I have even minimized the reasons for my visits and she has made me feel "silly" for being concerned about my symptoms or side effects. She can be nice but for the most part I leave the office feeling awful about myself. On one occasions he even laughed at me when I explained the reason for my visit. Aftwards, I felt uncomfortable and wanted to leave. Unfortnately, there is a lack of family doctors in the area so I cannot request a different doctor. Due to all the reasons mentioned above, I prefer to go to the hospital and sit in emerge and wait for several hours as I feel I will have better assistance.
Judy makes sure that you see a specialist if needed. I have a lot of problems and she sees that I am directed to the right person. If you are and informed consumer you get the help you need. Better that she takes a holiday than burn out. Look beyond her casualness. I saw her teach an intern and she is the best. That means she knows her stuff.
