Ratings for Dr. Robyn M. Wade
I have had several family doctors in the past few years as my long time doctor retired. I had started at this clinic with another doctor who moved to a clinic in the east end. Dr. Wade was her replacement. Chalk & cheese. I went from having a very personable dr who was interested in my symptoms & needs to Dr. Wade. Very impersonable, no time for discussing medical issues or feelings. One issue at a time for each appointment. Get in & get out. She has no personality & doesn't appear to enjoy the profession she chose. Not a very friendly person & doesn't take the time to get to know you. I avoid going to see her as she makes me uncomfortable and appears to have no time for listening to my medical issues. I recently had an infection that required antibiotics. Instead of going to my family doctor, I sat in the waiting room of a walk in clinic for 30 minutes just to avoid her. I would not recommend her to anybody. Staff at this clinic are a hit or miss. Friendly at times, rude at others. When making an appointment by phone, receptionists always ask too many questions about what the appointment is for. I find it an invasion of privacy. They have also told me on more than one occasion that I can only talk about what I'm calling for and nothing else. If this is what it means to get your appointment on time and get out, then I'd rather sit in a waiting room for the morning. A bit of friendliness goes a long way in my book.
Dr. Wade did not take the time to listen to my cry out for for services. She was told I was struggling through a serious decade seperation ( which she hadn't even asked what was going on in the relationship or what caused it to end) I was at my absolute worst. She refused to give me a sick note to be off work when I needed it the most. Assured me my problem was a problem everyone goes through but yet didn't ask what symptoms I was having. Yet, I was having numerous. ( anxiety, isolation, depression, etc) It was all about her feeling it wasn't a good enough reason to be on sick ei and that looked bad on her.. I went to another doctor the next day and they asked me how was I feeling, asked all the symptoms I was having and what they could do to help. ( medication, counselling services, etc) oh and I got the note. Here I am 3 mths later. Recovered after receiving counselling services and having the time off work I desperately needed through one of the darkest times of my life. I would not recommend this doctor. I was mind blown from the response I was given. I will continue to drive 35 min to the doctor who helped me vs 5 min to her..
Dr Wade is extremely impersonal. I always feel rushed and that all my concerns are not addressed whenever I visit her. Everytime I have seen her she just tries to write me a prescription and push me out the door. The frontline staff are the worst I've ever witnessed, they are extremely rude and condescending. I honestly do not understand how they allowed to operate in this manner. If you're looking to get treated like an actual human being then don't go here.
I do not find Dr. Wade rude or rushed. I find her short and impersonal. I do not go to the doctor because I dread going I feel uncomfortable bringing up my concerns to the table. Her front line staff are rude and unorganized. They told me the wrong time for an appointment I missed and I ended up having to wait months to see a specialist. I can see why some people enjoy her. But if you're someone who likes a personal connection and likes reassurance and a welcoming environment I don't recommend. If you just want to go in get pills and get out this is your doctor.
I find Dr Wade absolutely awesome friendly warm and knowledgeable. My child hated seeing the Dr until we started seeing her. Thats a gift. She takes the time to listen to you and makes you feel comfortable and we ALWAYS get in on time. That being said I believe a lot of the nasty comments here are completely unwatrented. How can you come here and give her a bad rating for being sick? How hypocritical can you be? Stop attacking this amazing woman and Doctor. She's got a full line of patients And cant get you in on a whim because she is just that. Amazing.
Seems very uninterested in her patients and rushed. I often leave without having all my concerns discussed because of the rushed atmosphere in the room. My family chose her because she had evening hours when she opened her clinic. Now that she has a full list of patients, she no longer has evening hours. A real downside for us since that was one of the reasons we chose her. In two years. three visits have also been with other doctors because she was sick. Wouldn't recommend Dr. Wade.
I normally don't post on these sites however I felt I should respond to a couple of the comments below. Dr. wade is very caring and attentive and takes time to do a thorough examination. She has even contacted me after hours. I have several friends who see her as well and they all feel she is an excellent caring doctor. The office rules are somewhat strict but it keeps things running on time which is a breath of fresh air when compared with my previous doctor.
