Ratings for Dr. Peter Henley
I was fortunate to have been one of Dr. Peter Henley in Vernon for about 6yrs now. He is only one in a small handful of General Practitioners that I can trust infinitely over many years. He has gone to bat for me with a number of serious issues & is articulate in keeping up on my medical conditions without exception. Anyone who indicates that he is uncaring or rude makes me wonder who is the culprit because he has never been anything other than caring & patient. I will truly miss his professional touch mixed in with real life experiences.
I became his patient short after he opened his practice in Vernon, and he's the best doctor I have ever had. He's caring, he listens and he's very concerned about your health. We recently moved to the Island and I had to say goodbye to Dr Henley. I don't care what anyone says, he's a GREAT doctor.
Dr. Peter Henley has been the best doctor I have had the pleasure of dealing with. He is thorough, knowledgeable and personal. He will always apologize to you for being a few minutes behind but its because he takes the time to listen to his patients and understand their needs. He does not just give you a perscription and have you on your way he truly tries to understand your ailment. I had a matter that involved a result coming in over the weekend and he called me personally to give me the results and set my mind at ease. Wonderful doctor.
Approximately 6 years ago I needed a dedicated Family Doctor (Walk-In-Clinics were no longer an option), and was referred to Dr. Peter Henley by world renowned Diabetes Expert, Dr. Maureen Clement. She was absolutely correct in the referral. Dr. Henley has proven to be a caring, knowledgeable Physician, who takes the time to listen before he devises a course of treatment. This past September, I tripped and fell very heavily at work, which resulted in multiple injuries to this 64-year old body. The worse proved to be my left knee which an MRI depicted a complex tear of the medial meniscus ligament. This is extraordinarily painful, and to an active man, it has virtually immobilized me. Dr. Henley has been with me every step of the way, ensuring that I get the best care. He has called me at home with information when a trip from Armstrong to his office in Vernon wasn't warranted. He has dealt with WorkSafe on my behalf, and I am currently awaiting an appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon, whom Dr. Henley has carefully chosen because he is proficient in knee surgery. As for wait times at his office? Well, small price to pay for the excellent care I receive. Many thanks to Dr. Henley.
My experience with Dr. Henley has left me speechless for three years now. At the urging of lawyers, friends, and family, here is my story. I explained to Dr. Henley I returned from N.Y. with a positive test for Lyme's disease and wanted to switch doctors and be his patient. I will vquote from my legal records. Dr. Henley spoke rudely and wholly abusive and said, "I just returned from a BC Medical doctors conference and we were told there is no such thing as Lyme's disease. I do not want you as a patient, you are a FRAUD, and don't come back to my office." No words I can express will ever communicate how greatly his behavior injured me.
I was a patient of Dr Peter Henley for several years, he does have a good 'bedside manner' but he seems to be most interested in getting people in on a regular basis for billing purposes. He tended to ignore what I told him were my symptoms and made up his own mind. He doesn't like investing health issues further and seems to think physiotherapy will resolve all chronic pain issues. He threatened to drop me as a patient if I continued to use walk in clinics but I decided the doctors at the walk in clinic were much more knowledgeable about my health issues so I dropped him as my doctor and now use the walk in clinics, there are draw backs to this but the doctors are far more willing to help. If you have a choice between Peter Henley and the Walk in Clinics stick with the walk in clinics !!
Dr. Peter Henley is a really great doctor he is very knowledgeable and cares for his patients I suffer with anxiety and depression and one day I was in there suffering with anxiety and he took the time to talk to me, and after leaving I felt much better and at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone, he is a very kind doctor and and knows what he is doing.
Hes fine if you're a generally healthy person, but if you need referrals or a new medication go to a walk in clinic . He is always late and it's very difficult to get your test results from him. I find his knowledge lacking and he doesn't investigate for you. I would not recommend him to anyone.
