Ratings for Dr. William (Bill) Dobson
Dr. Dobson has been my family doctor nearly my whole life. The friendliest doctor in any field that I've encountered. Living in Toronto and seeing walk-in doctors all the time who leave me filled with questions and lingering concerns, I will always go out of my way and take a day off work just to get to Oakville to see him for an appointment. He's always on time, always very attentive and puts my mind immediately at ease. As a hypochondriac, this is extremely helpful for me. He listens to my concerns, is always a step ahead and gets the correct tests done, correct diagnoses or refers me to the the right person. Also incredibly good at explaining complex things into terms that I can fully understand. I cannot appreciate him being my doctor enough.
My family and I have been patients of Dr, Dobson since 2001. I wanted a doctor that had hospital access and that could care for our growing family. Dr. Dobson has been a great doctor. He is punctual, patient and kind and very supportive. He does not over prescribe and will refer to specialists when appropriate. Like many doctors you have to be your own advocate, and with Dr. Dobson he will listen and support you. I highly recommend Dr. Dobson.
I have been a patient of Dr Dobson for a long time. He makes you feel at ease with his great attitude. Asks what your concerns are and then lets you know what he suspects. He will then refer you to a specialist. recommend a test or scan. or write a prescription. He is always on time never late once.
Dr. Dobson is a great doctor. My family has been patients of his for close to 20 years. He has always been respectful, on time, and has a warm and caring demeanor. My brother-in law is also a family doctor and whenever he knows about an issue we have he'll say "make sure your doctor does this test or gets this scan from the lab. There are a lot of doctors who won't take it seriously or cut corners. " Without even mentioning my brother in-laws recommendation to Dr. Dobson he typically sends us to take the appropriate test or scan. He is very thorough in his approach and I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Dobson has never made me wait. He values his patients time and is always very punctual. He is very knowledgable and listens to all my concerns. Wehn he does suspect something he is very thorough in his testing process to eliminate factors and get to the root of the problem.
I have been a patient of this doctor for over 6 years and he prefers to give you a prescription rather than a diagnosis. If you have a concern he doesn't listen and ask questions, he just downplays your concerns and you leave feeling like it is all in your head. You have to go back many times and complain about the same thing, and then it seems like you are forcing him to do something. You don't feel heard, supported or cared about in the least. If you just want a prescription, then he is ok.
