15/03/14 2 1 1 1 My husband and I were his patients for 3 years, during this time we never had more than our blood pressure measured by this doctor. To fill up my medical for driver licence he charged me $160.00 without even lifting a finger, only the pen. With the blood results in front of him, he asked me how my glucose level was, hello? Who is the doctor? It seems to me that he loves his chair more than his job, writing prescriptions or making appointments and referrals to specialists. In 3 years I never had a proper physical, tests and tests, hi stethoscope was gliding over my back with my winter clothes on (that was the only time he stood from his chair. Since I left for a different doctor, I finally got the care I needed. My pain is going away and without harsh medication that were not necessary. My husband had proper tests done and he is now healthier than ever. Thank you dr.Omiwole, yes thanks for nothing, I hope you will reconsider your charges, they are too gigh for your louzy services.  Respond

06/02/13 3 1 1 1 This doctor is completely incompetent ! I have been a patient for over four years now and had to go to him after moving to bowmanville from up north. This man finally after three years understood, or so I thought , to help me with my pain medication for Chronic pain as a result of a bad car accident in 1999-2000. That helped so I didn't have to travel up north to a specialist. Well after a year and another painful incedent left me requiring extra attention. He had no problem understanding for the month but all the sudden started getting snappy with me actually accused me out loud of being a drug dealer!! I do not misuse my medications whatsoever and was completely insulted and left. This man cares more about his methadone patients that line up first thing in the morning waiting for him to stroll in hours late ( as allways ) then you're well being. He never checks your blood pressure and unless you're asking for feed back or info will keep his head burried in his computer screen. AVOID  See Responses

02/07/12 5 5 5 5 I never expect a Dr. to be on time, unless I'm the first patient of the day. Things happen that makes their days become off schedule. I consider myself lucky to have a doctor as most don't accept new patients. I found him very knowledgeable and helpful; and his staff great.  See Responses

14/12/11 3 1 1 1 Unfortunately, since I already have Dr. Omiwole as our family doctor, no other doctor will take on our family. He is very lazy, will make you wait in the waiting room for 30 min while he types out his reports on his computer. He's just as useless when you finally do see him. Unless you specifically instruct him to do something (take your blood pressure, send you for blood work) he does nothing and mumbles a non-sensical response to your problem. The thing that erks me the most is when I arrive in his office it's like he has no idea who I am and no idea why I'm there (even if I'm there for a followup from the day before) I think I'd be better off going to a walkin clinic than him.  See Responses

30/06/11 3 3 1 1 how this man got his medical liscence i will never know !!!! absolutly the most useless excuse for a doctor. ive had him for about 8 yrs now, and hes taken my blood pressure once !!! that is it, he has not laid a finger on me other than for that !! his waiting times have improved over the years.....only because patients are switching doctors by the dozen each month !!  See Responses

16/05/11 2 1 2 2 This guy is one of the most disinterested doctors I have ever known. I went to him for six years and he voluntarily took my blood pressure maybe five times...and I take medication to treat high blood pressure! I always had to ask him to check it. He doesn't listen to you..thinks everything is a joke and reluctantly sends you for proper tests or discusses results and possible treatment options. The one good thing he did do for me was suggest I should have gastric bypass surgery which I did and subsequently lost 125 lbs. I suffer from debilitating osteoarthritis and he did nothing to help me with pain. I finally had enough and found a Dr who is wonderfully thorough and caring. Dr Gertler thank you!  See Responses

19/01/10 3 1 1 1 didn't to send me to a high risk ob after 4 miscarriages and diagnosis of bicornuate uterus, kept putting me off. Did NO prenatal care, a basic ultrasound but no bloodwork. Didn't check weight or blood pressure.Forced him to give me a referal at 17 weeks,sent the wrong test results to the specialist,because he didn't do anything,I need to have vast amounts of bloodwork and testing that should have been done already. He didn't send me for a maternal serum screen and now it's too late to do it. This Dr is more concerned with charging OHIP for office visits than treating patients. General wait time is at least an hour, half the time he wanders into the office an hour late, no apologies, double books appts, Horrible bedside manner,too busy looking at his laptop to listen to you. Just bad,he needs to have his license yanked!!  See Responses

26/09/09 4 4 5 5 Dr Omiwole has ordered blood tests, urine/stools samples, ultrasounds, ECG's/EKG's etc for my husband and I. He's very thorough with his testing, willing to discuss results and very helpful in his recommendations to specialists. These tests came in very useful recently for me when a medical condition arouse. We we're able to use the test results as baselines and compare them to new tests. It was Dr Omiwole who discovered a secondary problem coming up that could have made my condition much worse. I think he's very thorough and very knowledgeable.  See Responses

01/09/09 1 1 1 1 I have been on a medication for chronic pain for several years and each week I have to visit the doctor to renew my prescription and each week I have to give a urine sample and get told there is none in my system. I take my medication the way it is to be taken and because there are so many people abusing or selling thier medication Im being punished for it. Ive been a patient of Dr.Omiwoles for many years and have asked him if I could be sent for blood work to prove I am taking my medication and he dismissed me from his office, he has cut my medication in half and I suffer each day because of it. I cant even go for walks with my son or take him back to school shopping because I cant handle the pain of walking for any period of time now that my medication has been cut back. I have asked him if maybe his tests kits are faulty and he said its not possible. I dont understand why I am being treated the way I am.  Respond

26/06/09 3 1 1 1 This is by far the worst medical professional i have ever visited. I broke a few bones in my ankle (soccer injury) a while back, and after limping for 2 weeks finally decided to go in. He didn't even look at it, but started asking me what my fave. Euro team was, and about international womens soccer. Not knowing it was broken, I asked if I needed a brace or splint. He said 'you want a splint? What foot is it for?' and simply wrote a prescprition for a rigid lace-up splint. A week later, I was still in imense pain and finally went to a walk in where I was x-rayd and properly treated. He is never punctual, told me I needed to lose weight for someone my height (eventhough I am a marathon runner and consider myself to be more muscular than the average), and constantly looks at his laptop when you are speaking. Would not advise anyone to visit him  Respond

24/03/09 1 1 1 1 DISGUSTING!.This is NOT a doctor. I have kyphoscoliosis and arthritis in my spine, which comes with severe and paralyzing pain on and off. This man told me that I should loose some weight and I will be fine. The damn nerve of him. I firmly believe that he should no longer be able to practice in THIS COUNTRY.I would NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.I am currently looking for a professional doctor to care for me.  See Responses

28/01/09 2 3 2 3 My wife and I are in the same position as many others have reported, i.e. putting up with inferior health care because we can't find another doctor. Yes, he is friendly, and he may well be knowledgeable, but we will never know because he talks as little as possible. I think his problem is that he is basically lazy and doesn't like doing unpleasant stuff. I had a cancerous polyp in my colon several years ago, and luckily I still get examined by the specialist once a year, because Dr. O never mentions it and has never done a DRE. An annual physical just consists of sending me for blood work and X-rays and taking my blood pressure. I have noticed his waiting room thinning out lately so I think many of his patients are starting to find other doctors or going to walk-in clinics.  Respond

29/09/08 2 1 1 2 I've been his patient for years, never remembers me. Never receive test results and I am high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. When you book a physical exam all you get is weight, height, blood pressure. Only does internal exams when you demand, he's only done one in 6 or 7 years - with no results given. Head in his computer. No follow-ups, reminders, results. Doesn't ask questions or show interest in overall health. Wish I could find a new G.P.! Over books appointments - usual wait time is about 1 hour. Knowledge - hard to tell because he never tells ME anything.  See Responses

03/06/08 1 2 2 1 Dr. Omiwole should not be in the medical profession. He has made several very serious mistakes regarding medications. He never gives results when needed from tests, and simply is very unprofessional. I am looking for a new doctor but I am having trouble finding one. Personally Dr. Omiwole scares me.  Respond

17/07/07 5 1 1 1 My dr. of 25 years retired and I began to see Dr. Omiwole. One every occasion he spent more time on his laptop than with me. I felt like I was imposing on his time, that I was the intrusion! He was not helpful at all...I had to pry information out of him...isn't he the one who is to be supply the info? He kept you waiting up to an hour to see him just to try and decipher what he was saying to you if he ever lifted his head away from the laptop. He offered no advice or sound medical reasoning at all. I am happy to say I have found another wonderful doctor that I have to travel some distance to see and it is worth it.  See Responses

19/03/07 1 1 1 I was a patient with Dr. O for a few years until the frustration level was too much to handle going to him so I applied to the courtice/oshawa clinic and thankfully was accepted. I was having major asthma attacks if I ate salty foods so I went to Dr. O to see if it could be allergies or maybe something triggering these attacks, even though I don't generally eat salty food however you can't always control that when dining out. Back to the point, Dr. O told me to not eat salt because it's not good for me. That was his best diagnoses. I think you can understand the frustration considering I already realized that as a solution but didn't answer my question. There were two other incidents that resulted in similar results, so I did give him more than one chance to redeem himself but he couldn't. So I'm happy to say I have a new doctor that listens to me and helps me, as a GOOD Doctor should.  Respond
