11/02/13 4 4 5 5 I have been a patient with Dr. Jovel for many years and only now decided to leave a review. I think he is a great doctor, compassionate, well informed and interested in his patients. There was a time when it was difficult to get an appointment but that seems much improved the last few years. Yes sometimes you have to wait, but when you do get to see him you are never rushed out and he will listen to all your concerns at once. I don't go very often anymore but at one time I had some serious health issues and he was always very supportive. The negative comments about his receptionist are not reasonable I don't think. She is certainly business like, but this is after all a business. And sometimes you get what you give.

01/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Jovel is an excellent doctor...He is very helpful because he takes the time to explain the medical illness and the medical treatment needed. He is very dedicated with his patients. His knowledge about diabetes and other illnesses is impressive.  Respond

18/03/11 5 2 5 5 Dr. Jovel is a fantastic Dr. He has excellent bed side manners and is attentive to the issues brought up. He has been very caring to my family when my children are ready to see a GP I will most definitly sign them up with him. He is a busy Dr. however he has always made time to provide the necessary medical care. His administrative assistant has always treated my family and I with respect and profesionalism.  Respond

07/11/10 3 1 5 5 I think Dr. Jovel is probably one of the best doctors in Winnipeg. He knows what he's tlaking about and spends a long time with all his patients which is also why he always runs like 3 hours behind. I went once with my dad and we were in there for almost an hour. No other doctor will do that with any patients. He is very smart and makes you feel very confortable when you see him (im a girl). Some male doctors don't have that and just make you feel weird and unconfortable. It does take too long to see him but thats because he's so good and also works at the hospital. His secretarty is not friendly but last time I needed something she did her job and as long as you stay on what you need and call her again she will get things done. So I was actually impressed with her last time I went in to get some blood work and stuff.  Respond

03/09/10 1 3 5 5 Dr. Jovel is an amazing Dr, his wife could use a bit more education in sociology and customer service but if that's what it takes to see Dr. Jovel I will tolerate her lol ;D  Respond

17/08/10 2 5 1 5 I htink that he is a great Dr., once you have get to see him he gives you his full attention, but try to get to see him and you ahve to wait at least 3-6 months before you can get in. There is no point in trying to see him when you are sick becuase by the time you have the appointment scheduled you will have already gone to the walk in clinic or the hospital- so much for my family doctor keeping up with my record  Respond

16/08/10 5 5 5 5 I don’t understand how people can be so rude and writes those comments about Dr. Jovel’s wife, she is just doing her job. If you don’t like the way she treats patients, then look for another doctor. In my opinion, she is a great person and of course Dr. Jovel is one of the most wonderful doctors that I ever met.  Respond

15/01/10 2 2 2 4 he has become a careless dotor with his patients ever since he became a "****" it seems to be that he does not care the illness ,does not follow up ,prescribing meds that are hurting people ,does not give proper attencion.Never will go back to see him again.and the woman at the desk has preferences for the closes people to her................BAD DOCTOR.  Respond

17/12/09 1 2 5 4 i book my appts 3-6 months ahead.Wait weren't so bad when i went to see him as a child and teen...this change in long wait times is "recent".B/c he's such a good doctors and everyone knows it-eeryone was to see him.Plus if you're new to this country and can't speak english very well its best to see a spanish speaking doctor and speak with a spanish speaking receptionist. Yes,i also do agree that the receptionists isn't so great with being friendly or polite b/c it is a place of buisness.however-lets keep in mind that we are there for HEALTH CONCERNS. The spanish gossip/chit-chat comes with the culture.it seems from my experience its not the receptionist that is doing, encouraging or participating in it-but the clients/patients.  Respond

28/10/09 2 3 5 5 Dr. Jovel is great Doctors who cares about his patients and takes the time to asses and adivce the patients for their well being.. Making appointment is a great chanllange, I feel for the Doctor because his assistant is very un-proffesional and negletful of calls.. she does not take the time to return phone calls to advise patients who have made multiple attempts to get an appointment or a referral from the doctor... Some might say that she makes the decisions who will be called back.. the question is who is the descion maker and if she's to be kept on board she needs some serious training in Customer service...it's sad to have bad reviews on preventable matters.. What would happen in case of an emergency...I guess she gets covered by advising patients to go to the nerest hospital or emergency room if not feeling well because she is not efficient enough to answer phone calls. It's sad to see patients leave becasue of poor service not by doctor but by STAFF!  Respond

14/10/09 5 3 5 5 Dr. Jovel is an extremely knowledgeable doctor. People should know his real training is microsurgery, so you're dealing with a highly skilled physician. I don't understand all the complaining about tardiness and his receptionist. For one thing, long waits are a characteristic of the overall health care system in Canada. Second, his receptionist does what she can with what she's got. Sometimes people go in there already predisposed and are not nice to her either. If you know what you're getting into, why do you complain? The drawbacks are a trade-off for being treated by a great doctor. Stop your whining and give the man all the support you can. After all, your life is literally in his hands! Thank you Dr. Jovel!!!  Respond

14/07/09 1 2 5 5 Dr. Jovel is an exceelent MD. I agree with everything which has been stated so far with regard to his nature both as a MD and a human. The one area I would suggest he do himself and his wife a favour in is to replace her as his receptionist. She is very difficult to deal with, lacks proffesionalism and spends much of her time gossiping with spanish speaking patients in the waiting room. If she likes you, it is easy to get an appointment, but if she doesn't your wait will be a while. She lacks any warmth or personality for that manner and frankly it is exhausting to be nice to such an unpleasant individual just so that she will grace you with a quick appointment should you need one in the future. She is in the wrong job if she hates dealing with people and I hate to say it but I find that she is much friendlier to hispanics than others. Her desk is a mess and I do not understand how she can manage an office from a laptop. Dr, Jovel, please seperate personal and business.  Respond

09/05/09 1 1 5 5 Dr. Jovel is very friendly, compassionate, knowledgable and an excellent doctor. However, he should send his secretary to take a course in customer services or better yet, he should replace his secretary!  Respond

05/05/07 2 4 4 I would agree with the other patients that the wait time can be long and frustrating, but I don't think the problem is with his secretary/wife and the way she books appointments. I think it's that Dr. Jovel simply takes too long with each patient because he is such a good doctor! He is willing to hear about all of your concerns, and never tries to rush you out the door, which of course, can cause an accumulated scheduling delay. He seems to be very thorough in that he doesn't hesitate to order tests he feels is necessary. You come away feeling that all of the bases have been covered. I appreciate that. I'm just sorry the rest of the medical system is also tardy because it takes a long time for him to get any results back for the myriad of tests he has ordered for you.  Respond

05/12/06 3 5 5 Dr. Jovel is a very nice doctor but waiting is terrible! I always arrive an hour before my schedule but have to wait for 2 or more hours just to get a check up. I guess his wife over-books his schedule all the time.  Respond
