Ratings for Dr. Tracy Forsberg
I have been with this Dr. for a long time, when she was younger she was very good but now it's like she doesn't have the time of day for her patients, that is of course if she is even in the office and not touring the world, 5 out of 6 appointments in the past 12 months have been with substitutes, not a good thing for the patient that she is supposedly "there" for. Has no time to discuss anything, she should look to another profession! My average visit time is less than 4 minutes, not good care in my opinion especially when I only see her when an issue is severe enough to warrant a visit to her office.
Great Doctor -- Doc Forsberg has been my Doctor for quite a few years and I am thankful for her being so. She is smart, knowledgeable, decisive, and has always shown great empathy towards me and my medical issues. I could not wish for a better Doctor.
Terrible doctor!!!!!!!! Went in with an extremely painful toe and she said it was a bunion and had me buy a strap for it....the pain after wearing the strap was excrutiating to the point I was crying. I had to have someone help me to take off the strap as I couldnt bear the pain of doing it myself. I ended up going to my family dr in oakbay and it turns out I had gout!! He couldnt believe this idiot dr diagnosed a bunion as the problem.
This Dr. hardly had the time of day for me. She rushed me in and then rushed me out even faster. It felt like i was holding her back from her lunch break. She is very unprofessional.I would be afraid to put my health in her hands. I will not see her again. It would be better to see less patients and give them more time and quality service than rushing through as many as you can without finding what the real problems are. We are not coming in to annoy you we sick.We do not want to waste your time . DON'T WASTE OURS
This clinic used to be very good but with new staff in the office patients are lied about to the doctors...I received not one but two letters from Dr. Forsberg indicating that she was sorry I was leaving...when in fact the staff member put me off for over a week, my prescription was exported, I tried to speak with the office manager but the staff member told me "we are not an emergency service" you will need to go to a walk in clinic. Dr. Forsberg did not even try to talk with me to find out what happen, She has been my doctor for 10 years, this new staff member in one week managed to destroy out relationship...Kim you are a liar, and you have no respect for clients...Dr. Forsberg I can't believe you did not even question what happened. It used to be a great practice...not any more...crazy...just crazy
Hack! Kept me in pain for years and can't read a MRI report. I was told it was muscular even thou It was badly budge discs according to MRI and needed to be injected with a lot of needles when in fact it was nerve pain and needed surgery. When I needed a referral to pain clinic she referred me for lower back (I needed referral for my chronic pain in my knee not my back that can be fixed) now I wait another 6 months. I got hit by a car at work and suffered a PTSD type problem and the shrink wanted me to do exposure therapy but involved adivan. I got a great big NO because of my past. Really i have been on Morphine for 8 years with no issues but because i told her when I was young I dabbled in stuff like any teenager. I hope you read this. When i have seen 2 ER Dr's and they said that my meds need to be altered due to the fact the pain is to intense to handle. And when I make an appt after the fact of seeing ER Dr's you say your not doing anything more for me and I ask you for help you have the balls to say why am I fighting you about meds. IF YOUR GOING TO BE A DOCTOR GET IT TOGETHER. I have read previous ratings and i see i'm not the only one going through this. You might be a wicked Doctor if I had stubbed my toe or a plugged up nose but you know nothing about pain. NOTHING. Please if you are taking on new clients do not take on anyone with chronic pain and send them to someone who knows about pain. I could go on but I think the point is across. Anyone reading this. IF YOUR IN PAIN THIS IS A DOCTOR YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET INVOLVED WITH.
She is so focused on her assumptions that I left without getting to why I was there until I told her I was only there for a second opinion as per another doctor. NEVER have I seen anyone treated(thinking about difficult street teens) like I was treated. Too upset to drive as I was shocked I let her talk to me like she did. Amazing to see the good reports.Guessing she either decides she is irritated by some patients and not by others.Also amazing she is married to a man of the integrity of co-doctor Anton at same clinic. Front desk wont tell u if she is working. not allowed to for walk in clinic hours so I have gone and left and postpone issues because I refused to see her. Vocalizing my exp.would only put me long down wait list for doctor I am guessing..only negative thing about Sooke is her.Did not know appt was over til she got up and saw her typing away on the central computer. Amazing.
