Ratings for Dr. Finola Foley
I was assigned to Dr. Foley in a walk in clinic for with a call back on a STI test. Aft er expressing to her how nervous I was, tears filing my eyes, she blatantly told me that I had chlamydia and immediately after started firing questions at me before I even got a chance to think. She prescribed me 2 tablets to take immediately and gave me a urine sample to return in 11 days. At the time I was to distraught to really think of any questions to ask but I felt like I wasn't getting all the information I needed. Even afterward I called the pharmacy back to ensure I had been given the right medication as my boyfriend had received something different. They reassured me that it was the correct medication. On the 11th day I received a call from a health nurse external from the clinic who informed me that I had been given the WRONG medication, what Dr. Foley had prescribed me wasn't even to treat chlamydia!!! Not only that, but the urine sample I did was also useless as you are supposed to go back in after 1 month because you can still falsely test positive within that time. Over all, needless to say, in a situation as stressful and humiliating as that one I received no compassion, no information (The wrong in formation if I was told anything!!) and on top of that the wrong medication. I am extraordinarily unhappy with this experience and would not ever recommend her.
Went to Dr.Foley to request a referral to see a dermatologist. I was expecting her to simply put me on the wait list to see a dermatologist like my previous doctor, but in addition to that she referred me to a walk-in dermatologist that I could see tomorrow! Very helpful and saved me from waiting another 3 months to get help.
Dr. Foley is an amazing doctor. She is the only doctor that listened to my concerns and understood me as well as helped me. I feel very fortunate to have her as a doctor. She is always going above and beyond, and truly cares about her patients. I have never met a doctor so caring in my life.
Dr. Foley was hands-down, the best doctor I have ever had. She went above and beyond her duties as a physician, and genuinely cared about all her patients. She even called me at home after hours with lab results that I was nervous about. I was definitely heartbroken that I could no longer see her after I finished university at McMaster. She is one of a kind, and a definite gem.
