Ratings for Dr. Kristen Maureen Hallett
We lost Dr Hallett when she went back to McMaster in 2006. She was so gentle and caring with our children. My 3 yr old adopted son had been labeled as clumsy and stumbled a great deal. She thoroughly investigated and came up with a reason. He had a precious hip injury ( he was adopted) and it was never tended to properly. We started physio and occupational therapy’s the following week. I am hoping to have my younger children referred to her very soon and will travel the 3 hrs to make sure they receive her care!!
Dr. Hallet listened to us and was able to assess our daughters situation, and finally we were able to have a diagnosis and treatment. Thank you so much Dr. Hallet! You are funny, kind, knowledgeable, and most importantly you listened!!! Thank you so much!!
My infant daughter had to see Dr. Hallet twice to follow up on some concerns that my family doctor had. She was very nice and very thorough. She asked lots of questions and listened closely and was very helpful. Our first appointment was almost an hour long which was a welcome change since most doctors are always in such a rush. I was partially sad when my daughter's issues were resolved and we didn't need to go and see her anymore because I was amazed at all of the great tips I got from her both visits.
Absolutely uncaring of my daughter where we first met while she was on call at McMaster. She is a liar claiming to have contacted our family doctor with medication that we needed BEFORE we were discharged. Heaven forbid you question this doctor at all. If you do she will put on her....how dare you?.... God like syndrome which clearly made me mistrust her and I have recently reported her to the medical board. Maybe she's having either mid life crisis or going through a severe case of "the change"
We had a hard time with Dr. Hallet. Our son was newly recognized by her for ADHD, she diagnosed Biphentin after 15 minutes with him. He had a terrible drug reaction (yes it was distributed properly) and we received no support from her regarding his psychotic bursts while on the drug. We kept having to communicate through phone messages with her receptionist. When we did finally did get a live person on the phone, she [the receptionist] started diagnosing over the phone! I told her we had to speak to the doctor immediately. So we finally got in after five attempts. Our son was then switched to Concerta which worked much better, but we had to push for a follow up appointment in six months instead of 12. She completely missed his signs for Asperger's syndrome. We understood this because our son's ADHD, was very consuming in terms of his behaviour on a first meeting. However it was another doctor that suspected and tested for Asperger's.
Dr. Hallett is great. She had diagnosed my daughter and put us on a treatment right away when our family doctor couldn't help at this point. Her receptionist is another story. She is not helpful or friendly and seems to take pleasure in not being able to accomodate you with an appointment. I have had every booked appointment rescheduled due to conflicts at the office.
You can not ask for a better doctor..top notch. When my 10 day old son broke out in blisters on his groin my family doctor was on holidays. I had my follow up with my OB and asked him for help with my son and he called Dr. Hallett and she said she would see him as soon as I could get to her office. She was excellent, thorough and so personable. Also for some who don't know if it wasn't for her god knows how many kids would have died or had permanent damage from the Walkerton water fiasco. She was the best doctor we had in Owen Sound and is still very much missed.
Dr. Hallett is a great one. She was able to cut through the smoke and get to the root of my sons difficulties quickly when other Doctors were stumped. Not super keen on the receptionist though. She often comes across as rude and unhelpful. She doesn't take the time to let you finish your sentence before uttering her own.
