Ratings for Dr. Thérèse Hodgson
Once a great Doctor and office Staff. Now you cannot even book an appointment. I went for an appointment in March and was asked by the Dr to come back in 3 months. I tried making a follow-up appointement before leaving and was told to call back in 3 months. I called back in 3 months and was told to call again in another month. I called back and was told to call daily at 9:00 am if you can get through and they will give you an appointment that day if available. I am giving up and going to a clinic. Great patient service.
Receptionist, Susan, is not helpful and thinks she's a doctor- it's not okay how she talks to patients and staff and then makes decisions for the clinic without talking to her doctors first. For Dr. Hodgson, once a great doctor but now she is never in the office and seems to have lost her interest in patient care.
I've been a patient of Dr. Hodgson's for approximately 10 years. 5-10 years ago I would say that she was wonderful, compassionate, thorough and available. But something has changed. She is rarely available and when I do see her she is quick, disinterested and appears rushed or off. She now has other physicians working for her and it is not helpful to always see someone new at each visit. Also, what's most frustrating is her front staff, Susan- she isn't friendly and acts too much like a doctor and you don't feel respected. If I could roll back time 10 years I would! The only plus about staying with Dr. Hodgson and her office is that she is connected to another clinic that offers counselling and nutrition coaching and you can see their nurse practitioner too. The staff on Canotek Road are wonderful!
I have been going to Dr Hodgson since I was 15.. I am 34 now... I love her.. great doctor.. always takes my concerns seriously and is very knowledgeable. All 3 of my children also go to her now as well. I moved to Kanata and still travel across town as I like her so much I will not switch to one closer to my home.
Thank you Dr. Hodgson and if I may say Thérèse after knowing each other for 24 years, for all the good care and advises throughout the years, all your work and effort has been very well appreciated. As you know I have been living on the Quebec side for more than 10 years and have now found a family physician, my only hope is that she will be as compassionate, dedicated, knowledgeable and wonderful as you are. Also special thanks to your staff and you too Suzanne for all your hard work.
My Physician was away this week so I went to see Dr. Hodgson. I had never met her before, and was a bit nervous to have to discuss the medical problem I was facing with a Physician I did not know well. She instantly put me at ease. Dr. Hodgson is very thorough and caring. She showed me tremendous compassion and empathy. I would definitely recommend such a knowledgable Doctor.
