Ratings for Dr. Leslie Bannister
Dr. Bannister is an excellent doctor. He's professional, caring, and just an all round nice guy. He was my family doctor for 33 years, at which time I made the extremely hard decision to switch to a group practice. Over the years it became harder and harder to get in for an appointment, until the point where it reached about a 2 month wait for a general office visit and over 6 months for a physical exam. The choice to switch was based on more flexibility and availability of appointments (therefore having issues addressed more timely). I sometimes regret making the switch in regards to his caring and personal service. I appreciated him taking care of me and my family for all the years he did.
Dr. Bannister is an amazing doctor. He doesn't have a God complex like some doctors I have heard about(Dr. Toby Im...oops did I say that out loud LOL). When he knows something is off but can't quite detect what it might be he will immediately refer you to see a specialist. He has an extremely warm and caring mannerism about himself. He makes me feel like I'm his only patient when it's my time to see him. The day he decides to retire will be a very sad day for this community. I don't feel I'll ever find another doctor that will be able to fill his shoes.
Dr banister was my doctor for 25 years. I just recently left for another doctor beacuse the wait to see him was outrageous, 2 months was typical. while I was with Dr Banister he was an amazing doctor, so helpful,kind, knowledgable... If I could get back in with him, I definatly would, even with the wait times so ridiculous.
I've been with Dr. Bannister since I was born and find him an amazing and caring physician.....my only complaint is how long it takes to get an appointment 6-10 weeks. I had surgery and needed a refill on my persciption which would have run out before the 2 months it took to get an appointment. what were my options: wait at the walk-in clinic for 3 hours. I adore you Dr. Bannister, but you have more patients then you can handle, and I hate to say this, but doctors like this are why emergentcy wait times are so long. Heaven forbid I have a problem that isn't serious, I make an appointment for 2 months from now, but in the mean time it developes into something more serious.....I end up at the hospital emergency.
Dr. Bannister is our family doctor and we are blessed to have the health of our family in such good hands. Although he wastes no time and goes fairly quickly, you still feel cared about and that he is going to give you the best medical treatment he can.I would be surprised if he wasn't the best doctor in Brant County.
I couldn't ask for a better doctor. What more can I say? He takes the time to listen to you. He spends time with you and actually carries out an excellent physical. It is hard to get in at times but what do you expect when he is such a great doctor.
