I was refered from RCH Emergency after my sone had a fall that ended up causing a lazy eye. The waiting room was packed, with limited to no seating available. The receptionist did not want to comment on wait times and when questioned by myself and other parents she would not provide any information until pressed. I had to ask her if we could take my 4 year old for lunch (4 hours after we left for hospital) until she finally told me the wait would be over an hour. Finally we were examined by someone who didn't intruduce herself before we saw the doctor. It was a little rushed, but Dr. Aroichane was polite and seemed quite knowledgable. I feel that she withheld some information about my son's condition as she discovered other issues that are likely not related to the fall and will be ongoing but she didn't explain that part.
That being said, I would reccomend her for your child and will take both my kids back, just with the knowledge that it will be rough until we see her directly.
Top notch, knows her stuff, extremely conscientious and skilled. She saw our daughter at Childrens and at her Burnaby office. Staff at both clinics are excellent. Our daughter has healed from her serious eye injury, thankfully due to the skill, knowledge and care of Dr. Aroichane and her colleagues at Childrens'. Our daughter loves Dr. Aroichane and keeps asking when we get to go back to see her :)
We did have to wait a bit in her clinic, but the wait is worth it and nothing out of the ordinary for any specialists I have seen in the past.
Each time my daughter has been to Dr.Aroichane we have had to wait at least an hour. Although I think she is knowledgeable, I think she needs to start booking her appointments differently. She obviously spends a lot of time with each patient (a good thing!) but this means that her other appointments always run late. I found her informative but her bedside manner was not the best. My daughter was actually kind of scared of her.
I arrived at the appointment time with my 2 year old son but had to wait for nearly 2 hours. There were not even enough chairs to sit and wait. Upon inquiry, the receptionist casually mentioned that wait times are usually this long. I was hoping to hear that it was an exception and that for whatever reason the doctor was running behind. But no. In her defense she further added that on the appointment confirmation letter we send out to your family doctor we mention in it that wait times are 2 hours! I wonder if it is okay/ ethical for doctors to make their patients wait this long. No apologize or explanation whatsoever! The doctor on the other hand first apologized for LONG wait. I also complaint to the doctor about the wait time and she told me it was an exception as she had a disabled patient. Doctor was polite. However, by this time my 2 year old son was extremely cranky and did not like to be examined. In the end I took a day off from work and it went to waste.
My son was referred to Dr. Aroichane after us having a very bad experience with another peds. opthamologist, My son has a very complicated case the first time we saw her she was quite overwhelmed by all the info I gave her but after that she was amazing. she explains everything is great with my special needs son and LISTENS to me which is so very important
we just love her she is kind,informative,has a knack with kids.my daughter always feels at ease with her! I would recomend her to anyone that would listen.also hands down Natalie in her BC Childrens office is just fantastic too
