Ratings for Dr. Pamela Taylor
Dr.Taylor saved my life. After years of looking for a good physician, i was lucky enough to get accepted as a patient. I was referred by a family friend. At my first appointment i knew that i had finally found my doctor. She listened. Plain and simple. She listened unbiased, she put me on meds that have not only saved my life, but made life livable again. She has been there for for the past 3 years approximitly, and she continues to be a major factor in my quality of life. She has helped me with various medical issues, and has always been my number one support. I hope to have her as my physician for many years to come. She is an A+ physician, person, and friend. I feel lucky to have her to help me no matter how small, or large the problem. My family loves her too. She is amazing with children as well. My kids love her as much as i do. Reception at her practice is very welcoming, and they also do an A+ job as well.
Specialists can take years to get to see it's true! Most family doctors have some wait times to get into see. It's ridiculous to think that you can always get into see your family doctor always at short notice. Dr. Taylor should be congratulated for giving good care to her patient. People are never happy - if she tries to see everyone that needs an appointment then people wait in the office and complain about waiting times. If she try and not make you wait and not book too many then people upset. Seriously, we're lucky we are not in a tornado like Texas and Florida. Why are there so many people whining about trivial thing. Be glad that you even have health care! Not like a lot of people in the world. Don't pay attention to the whining people Dr. Taylor - you're doing your best for people. It's not fair that people are never happy.
She really works hard to see her patients but she just got back from her vacation so she can't see everyone. I don't mind going to the walkin. It can take months to see a specialist and sometimes years. It's people complaining like the person below that lowers the morale of doctors and makes them retire or close their offices. There's also lots of people without a family doctor who would be more appreciative than the person below - shame on you!!
What is the point of having a family doctor that you can never get an appointment with; whose receptionist constantly refers you to the walk-in clinic or emergency? Knowing full well that you only request an appointment (other than your annual physical) if there is an extreme health issue that requires immediate attention. Dr. Taylor, herself, when you can get an appointment, gives you 100% of her attention.
I adore Dr. Taylor. She is welcoming and patient and kind. I have never received a misdiagnoses, where I have at many walk-in clinics. Just recently my daughter was misdiagnosed at an urgent care - the next day (Monday) I called Dr. Taylor, who, although booked for the day, squeezed us in because she didn't want my daughter to wait if she had an ear infection (which it turned out she did). Love this gal!! Thank you so much.
One person below complained about the waiting times. I think what they don't understand is that sometimes people will be going through very difficult periods in their lives, and they will take more time with Dr. Taylor than is expected. She gives them the time they need, and unfortunately, that means that sometimes (and really it is only SOMETIMES) she may be running late. I would gladly have a doctor that takes the time to listen to me, and have to wait, than someone who rushes me. I know that I can count on Dr. Taylor to really listen to me, and she cares about me as a person. Mental health problems are becoming more common, and it doesn't take just five minutes to help someone with depression or anxiety. Waiting in a walk-in clinic can be many hours, not to mention what the waiting time at the hospital can be! I am willing to wait for good care, both in the time it may take to get an appointment, and the time I wait to see her in the office.
Good luck trying to find a Family Doctor who doesn't keep you waiting at all! I used to wait 3 or 4 hours to see my last Family Doctor, and he would have me out the door in 5 minutes pushing a prescription on me! Our health care system is so overwhelmed that people coming out of the ER go to see their Family Doctor without an appointment. Also, I don't mind going to a walk-in clinic if I can't get in to see Dr. Taylor the same day, as it is crazy to think that she could see all of her patients on the same day. Good luck also finding another doctor who cares about her patients as much as she does!!! She never has lunch, or breaks in the day as she works hard trying to see the patients who need her immediate help, as well the other issues where people can really wait a week or two. Keep up the good work Dr. Taylor - you can't make everyone happy all the time. Nothing and no-one is perfect.
Most family doctors have much longer waiting times than 1 hour. Rarely do I have to wait to see Dr. Taylor, and she runs late because she does try to see you when you really need to be seen. It is reasonable to assume that she would be running late before or after vacations, as like all of us we try to get everything done before we go away, and then when we get back there are things that have built up. I have waited in the ER for 12 hours before seeing a Doctor, so 1 or 2 hours in not unreasonable!
