Ratings for Dr. Colin Milton
The best GP I've ever had & don't think I'll change to another GP. His knowledge plus quick & sharp diagnosis on rare illnesses in few occasions - no other doctors can beat. Downside is the waiting time, in one case I waited for 45 mins. Parking around the clinic is not the best, most are 1/4P or 1P only.
I actually changed medical clinics because of this doctor. He was extremely rude, dismissive and also questioned if I "swung that way". I found this incredibly invasive, inappropriate and not relevant to my health or medical issue. I actually found him creepy and sleazy. Get rid of this old incompetent man before he costs your clinic even further.
He cheat patients as he costs them level C (71$) on medicare when he only stay no more than 8 mins within the visit(36$ level B)....he also has no medical ethics as he laugh at patients for their illness. To all paitents please watch how long you stay in his room and see how much he will charge you, you will find he is costing your medicare account for the higher tier.
On the few occasions where my usual GP was away, I had the misfortune of seeing Dr Milton. He is rude, arrogant and dismissive. Each time I have seen him he has treated me like an imbecile, speaking over me, questioning facts about my medical history and being generally disrespectful. I once needed a repeat for prescription for Sifrol. When I asked him, he questioned what I took it for. I told him that I take it for Restless Leg Syndrome. He said he'd never heard of this syndrome. Hundreds of thousands of Australians are currently diagnosed with this disease! Scary. It's no coincidence that in a busy clinic he is often the only doctor who has any available appointments - so many patients have had bad experiences with this silly old man and simply refuse to be seen by him. I feel sorry for the lovely staff who have to work with him.
I have found Dr Milton to be by far the best GP I have been to , not just in Australia but in the UK as well.It has made a really refreshing change to see a doctor who listens and spends time with you, and actually physically examines you.Is willing to take on board the patients thoughts and ideas. I am a recently retired Uni Psychology teacher from London .I can really recommend this guy as a caring and engaging GP.I did also see Dr Eric Foong initially at the practice who was also excellent.
I've been his patient for a bout 4 years, find it interesting at the first few appointment as he seems like a character, over the year he has help me so much by diagnose many thing that is also other doctor could not find. I treated me very well and very courteous and professional. If anything he was unsure he always get back to you and follow up. I am very happy with him and also my whole family and friends are his patients. I can also tell how popular he is as his appointment always full. Definitely recommended Dr.Milton.
Does not listen to patient before giving advice. Does not take baseline observations when prescribing medication. Dominates and puts down other doctors in the same clinic. Would improve if took time to allow patient a couple of minutes to state concerns. Would improve if realised that both he and patient have a say in the treatment of medical conditions. Would improve greatly if he slowed down and saw fewer patients and considered each situation after reading all the notes before patient entered the room.
This useless doc was rude to start with and when I asked him to write a referral letter for a specialist (gynaec/ob), he said that he’ll first confirm if or not I’m pregnant. Hello, I've already been tested pregnant for 7 weeks, so what other confirmation do you need? When I asked about the next steps, he said “I’m not going to plan your WHOLE pregnancy today”as rudely as anyone can.Being in a noble profession if a doctor can’t even talk to a pregnant women like this, he doesn’t deserve to be a doctor. I’m on some medication and asked him if I can continue to have it or should stop it, and he replied “keep having what you have till I confirm that you are pregnant”. To that I said what if a miscarriage happens because of this as I’m already pregnant. He didn’t bother replying to this question and asked me to go to the lab and get her blood tested.I came out of the room and gave blood samples to the lab assistant, but are we going back to see him to discuss the reports with him? A BIG NO
