Ratings for Dr. Lindsay Bates
We took our son to see Dr. Bates at the age of 12 when we had concerns he might have an ASD. We had a Gold Standard Psychoeducational Assessment and ASD assessment done, which meant a combined 2 days of interviews and assessments. Our experience was excellent! Lindsay was thorough in her work with both our son and my husband and I. She has a solid understanding of Autism and how it presents in youth both female and male. She was considerate of his needs and explained the process to us with kindness and understanding. She provided thorough feedback on how she reached the diagnosis and how his lagging skills were likely impacting his life. We were also able to have her attend a school meeting to explain to his teacher and support staff ways to better support his learning. Since the assessment Lindsay has been open to troubleshooting problems we have encountered as well as hearing about success we have had, and she is willing and able to make recommendations for what to try next. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Bates to anyone seeking assessment services!
Dr. Lindsay Bates changed our lives for the best !! First few minutes of meeting her and talking with her she gets you and your child right away ! She puts you at ease, she is sweet, without judgment, compassionate, personable, inviting, caring, professional, intelligent ..... I could go on forever !! She connected with our son right away and got who he was.... she was a real blessing to have come into our lives about 6 or 7 years ago!! We took our son to every doctor who would take an appointment from NB, BC and NS..... even the hospital wasn't as helpful as we expected compared to Dr. Lindsay Bates !! She never makes you feel like you are bothering, asking to many questions or too often...... she is very prompt and happy to answer and take care of you ! Our son even has her email and direct contact..... because she gladly gave it to him! Her evaluations, assessments and interviews were VERY METICULOUS, on point and she takes the time to understand your child !! We are even getting Parent Coaching sessions to better parent our Autistic son, we'd be lost without her!! She is such a blessing in our lives ! Thank you so much for everything you've done and for the ongoing deeply caring involvement in our lives ! We appreciate her so much !
Our daughter has a very complex diagnosis. She began having anxiety at age 7, we went through 4 therapists before we luckily found Dr. Bates. She has time and time again assisted our family along with our daughter in problem solving, diagnosing, assessing, working along with her schools and the IWK to get her the best help we can. Our daughter tries her best, however ongoing treatment is needed for her. She has attempted suicide on several occasions and Dr. Bates has always been supportive in getting us the best care for her every time. Our child has made decisions that has put her in harms way and Dr. Bates continually reminds her of how much she cares , how much we love her and that despite her choices, her safety and wellbeing is the number one priority. Our daughter connected positively with Dr. Bates at a young age, without any judgement and we are so grateful that she continues to support her and our family. We would be lost without her.
