Ratings for Dr. Jennifer Hall
Initially appeared to be friendly and professional but within a half-dozen visits, her arrogant attitude was apparent. Condescending manner. During annual physical exam, actually squeezed one of my ovaries, causing tremendous acute pain! I made an appointment with the doctor I was told was head of the clinic to address my concerns about Dr Hall, was listened to and concerns were validated by this doctor, who then countered by stating two of her strengths, i.e. it all balances out (so my concern was effectively dismissed as not worth enough to warrant action). I suppose the real question is: what can be done with doctors who are not well-suited to the profession and ought to choose another where they cannot do damage to another person's body.
I have been seeing Dr. Hall for almost 15 years now. She has always shown that she cared, and is very helpful. When I was diagnosed with something very serious, for the next month she had me come in every few dad to check to make sure everything was going alright, until I started seeing a specialist. There is usually quite a long wait to get in but it is usually worth it. The Walls in her office are quite thin and she talks pretty loud which can be awkward. I've learned not to listen to her conversations in other exam rooms while I'm waiting for her!
When I first started seeing Dr. Hall I was very impressed with her thoroughness. She is a very knowledgeable doctor. In recent years she has not been very helpful and doesn't seem to be listening to me anymore. I really would like to get to the bottom of my health concerns but she seems to only be wanting to push more pills instead of looking at what's really happening. I unfortunately will look for a new doctor now.
Dr Hall seems only interested in money. It is impossible to see her without a wait of 6months. That is crazy. When you need to see your Dr you should be able to get in. My demands are not excessive but when I have an immediate issue I would like to be able to get in within a week. Her staff also seems quite casual about helping and actually told me there was nothing the doctor could do. I would have to wait At least a month to call for an appointment.
DR. Hall has the worst bedside manner of any GP I have ever been to. She is more often than not curt in her responses and dismissive of concerns and suggestions. She has an authoritative approach, does not like to be questioned, and lacks empathy. I am on the hunt to find another family doctor that is genuinely caring and compassionate.
I lived in Edmonton for 2 years. Dr. Hall got much praise from my mother about her thoroughness. I saw her approximately 8-10 times in 2 years and she was always a half-hour+ late, sometimes over an hour. My mother and I had to schedule appts back to back because I have no car and she is practically inaccessible if you're on the bus because the appt is never on time. She does take her time with you, it's just not that productive. I found her check-ups to be lacking and she just didn't listen all that well. I have a history of depression but when I expressed deep concern over my mental health during an appt, it was overlooked. My mother mentioned her worries about my mental health and out of the blue, Dr. Hall asked me about seeing a psychiatrist. She mis-diagnosed me with breast cysts and the radiologist expressed her shock at the diagnosis. Maybe I am that one bad statistic. I'm glad my mother likes her doctor.
So unbelievably lucky to have found Dr. Hall. The wait you may experience is truly worth it, as described below. Dr. Hall is the best doctor I've ever had. My life has been genuinely enriched by her care. I can't say enough great things about her!
