I have been a patient of Dr Givney's practice for 35 years and have the following
saying to impart to those complaining about having to wait to see her.
Its "Good things come to those who wait" and in this case this saying cannot not be more true. Dr Jane is the best ever doctor. In fact I used to travel back to Sydney
to see her when I was living in the Middle East because she is that good. She is one
of the most up to date, kind and thorough medical professionals and makes every
single patient feel like they are the most important patient she has ever seen. She
diagnoses where other doctors can't and knows only the best specialists who she
will refer you to if you need it. It makes me sad to see people giving bad reviews
for committed professionals such as Dr Jane but in my opinion these people don't
deserve a great doctor like her and its their loss for not having the patience or
maturity to get the kindest and most thorough doctor this side of the equator.
I tried giving this practice two more chances. Both times I waited over 1.5 hours. There are plenty of good doctors who give great service out there and DON'T make their patients wait this long. If you have no responsibilities and all the time in the world, though, I guess this is the practice for you. But if you can't run a business properly, I don't want you treating me.
I have been attending Dr Givneys practice for over 20 years, even after moving to Wagga Wagga, I still consider Dr Givney my GP and make the extra effort to make appointments whilst in Sydney because she is a great Doctor who I feel I could discuss anything with. Yes I have had to wait for an appointment here or there, but I dont know any Doctors that deliver exceptional care who dont run late. The reason Dr Givney does run late is because she actually cares for her patients doesnt just give you a prescription and send you on your way. It is a very happy and welcoming Doctors Practice, with all staff making the trip from Wagga to see my GP well worth it.
Please disregard the previous review. Dr Jane and all the doctors at this practice are amazing. If indeed there was an extended wait for this person it would've been because Dr Givney had to spend some extra time with a patient in need as she is always so attentive and caring. Sometimes I am in and out in 10 minutes and sometimes I have to wait but am happy to do so as I know I am getting the best care when I need it.
