Ratings for Dr. Anne Maxine Beattie
seems overconfident - I am not sure if it indicates knowledge; she rushes through the appointment and barely reads the results of the test to assume that everything is fine; last time she simply skipped a needed test saying "we'll do it next year" even though my vision worsened very badly this year.
Very knowledgeable and competent however her demeaneor is slightly off-putting as it seems she is forcing herself to be friendly when she is speaking to you. Gets frustrated easily and tends to talk down to you when you do ask a question. Staff in office are extremely friendly and helpful though.
Dr. Beattie and her staff have made an extraordinary effort to help me through my cataract surgeries. My case became very urgent quite quickly and these very competent women made my experience as smooth and easy as possible. Kindness and compassion combined with solid professionalism was displayed by Dr. Beattie and her staff throughout my experience. I could not have asked for anything more than the amazing treatment I have received. I was put at ease within the first 5 minutes, and Dr. Beattie constantly reassured me. I highly recommend this team!
As a dr I find her extremely competent. Kind and soft spoken as well. Assistants in the office are excellent and patient. I have only two complaints...she is not confident on her computer and gets frustrated and makes mistakes causing her anxiety and also taking up valuable time. You have to be patient and not ask questions while she types. I felt I could not feel my emotions and get to ask the questions I wanted because she was too busy dealing with her own stress. She even cursed a few times. Not very professional. Constantly defending herself and saying just wait and I will get to your questions.
I had both cataracts removed one year ago. Each eye done one month apart. She is wonderful! Once the pre-ops and post-ops were over I felt sad that I would no longer have the opportunity to see this person who is filled with integrity, warmth, professionalism, caring, reassuring, confident, welcoming. Her office team and St. Joe's hospital team also share the same qualities. One could not ask for better care.
The Best in Hamilton. you are fortunate if you found her, and this is not a rigged comment. She removed both cataracts from me, and did many tests before hand to determine the health of my eyes. She and staff at the eye clinic were very kind. She implanted lenses and I now have better vision than for years.
Had cataract surgery on my left eye this morning by Dr. Anne M. Beattie and I would highly recommend her to everyone. There were no surprises and she talked to me while doing the proceedure assuring me it was all going well. The anesthesiologist (pardon my spelling)was right on,,,,not so much that I didn't know what was going on but enough to keep me relaxed and comfortable. Dr. Beatties staff at her office and everyone that prepared me for my surgery, thank you so much. Nurse Linda,,,,there isn't even a blue mark where you put my intervenus in. My eye feels fine and If I didn't tell you, you wouldn't be able to tell I just had surgery on it today. What a great team!! Can't wait to get the other eye done in June. Thank you so much....Gisele Rees
Dr. Beattie was referred to my father as the Opthalmologist on call when he had an emergency. Dr. Beattie went above and beyond to organize appointments to deal with my father's condition that impacted his health beyond his eyes. She has been extremely thorough with her follow ups and her staff very helpful as well. I would recommend this Doctor to anyone!
