Dr. John Oliver's Ratings
On March 21 2014 I had a full hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Oliver. It's now been less than 2 weeks and I'm pain free and gaining more leg and hip movement each and every day. He has been courteous and top notch professional. Thank God I don't believe everything I read and I'm able to make my own conclusion. In short; A BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Oliver and his staff.
I had surgery in 2013. His staff is friendly but does not answer the phone, nor return messages within a couple of days - try weeks. He is the most arrogant individual I have ever encountered. After misdiagnosing my knee in the hospital - he spent 2 minutes and missed a torn ACL, torn MCL and torn meniscus. I went through a year and half of rehab, pain and disability. Second meeting, AFTER I paid for a private MRI that showed the tears, he said I should have had surgery when it happened so my outcome wouldn't be as good now. Then I had surgery and had many complications, but he was not available for a follow up since his office was being renovated. His office booked me to see him in the hospital, and after waiting for 3 additional weeks for the appoint and 2 hours in the waiting room, he didn't bother with a full examination, did not have my records so said I had to book an office appointment. That took another month. All of his exams were cursory and he missed major problems.
I had my knee scoped Tuesday may 29th 2012. So far I am very happy with the results. I was able to go home and mow my lawn the same evening. I had a private MRI done March 19th 2012. The report came back and read as follows. OPINION: The study demonstrates a full thickness tear of the ACL. An intrasubstance tear of the PCL is also identified along with a slightly depressed fracture of the posterior margin of the lateral. I did have 3 surgeries cancelled but the wait time did not really exists as far as I am concerned. From the time of injury march 8th 2012 to surgery date May 29th 2012 it wasn't even 3 months. It's been 12 days and it keeps getting better everyday as long as I walk lots and don't sit around. Thank you Dr. Oliver. I should be back on the hill snowboarding next year. Time will tell I will update my status of surgery results this fall/winter. But my opinion is that Dr Oliver is a great surgeon and treated me great, in a very timely and professional manor
OMG! For all you nay sayers out there. If you need consoling, see a psychologist. If you need a friend, join FaceBook. If you need an oath surgeon, see Jack. FYI most surgeons are not social butterflies with their patients. They're busy shutting out the whiners and diagnosing the legitimate clients. He diagnosed my rare oath issue in the ER before he saw me. No he is not Mr. Congeniality but a great surgeon.
Great Dr and great team at the clinic. I have a needle phobia and the whole team made me feel super comfortable. I was concerned about the scarring after open ACL replacement surgery and he even did inside disolving stitches for me. So happy Dr Oliver and his team performed my surgery. It has been a week and barley any pain and everything is healing nicely. Heading back to work on the 28th. I would recommend him for any ACL replacement surgery.
In 2006, I injured my right bicep tendon distil. A serious tare to the tendon, causing my bicep to be pulled away from my forearm. Oliver operated on me, explaining nothing before the operation. I was nervous about this, as I new there were options. I trusted him to retract the bicep muscle back into place and suture it. As it turns out he had other ideas about my repair. He left the bicep exactly where it was and patched it in place, with the muscle remaining pulled away from my forearm and half way up my arm toward my shoulder. Today my life has changed drastically. I have lost most of the strength in my right arm. I'm having trouble gripping things and have cramping an pain in this area daily. Today I am playing the waiting game to see other orthopaedic surgeons. I could not recommend this Dr. to anyone. He is not trust worthy. If you are injured and require an orthopaedic surgeon, I would avoid this man altogether.
THIS dR SCOPED MY KNEE AND AFTERWARDS HAD NO IDEA IF I TOAR MY ACL. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO SCOPE A KNEE, FIX CARTLEDGE TEARS AND NOT KNOW. I FIRED HIM AND HAD AN MRI THEN HAD RECONSTRUCTION BY DR MCCORMICK IN NWM
Dr. Oliver treated me for a fracture radius and ulna. He misdiagnosed my arm causing me to refracture it twice and ending up having surgery. I will never be able to move my wrist fully again and have now been in a cast and/or sling for close to six months. He is the worst surgeon I can imagine having. He has 14 pending lawsuits against him and has a rate of post-surgery infection close to 70%. He is the HEAD of orthopedic surgery at Kelowna General Hospital.
