Dr. Linda Mrkonjic's Ratings
Mine was not a complicated issue, but she had a very nice bedside manner, very helpful in my rehab options, gave me lots of good exercises, and instilled confidence in me. I look forward to my next visit. Thank you Doctor
I have read some negative reviews on here prior to see this Dr, but I can assure you she is fantastic. Yes she is blunt and to the point which I appreciate, why waste my time or her time. Yes she is smell sensitive and you are warned no sents as it can kill her. This Dr is skilled and knows her job very well. I was in for an Achilles repair and my recovery has been fantastic so far. Thank you!!
I tore my ACL and visited her after referral by my family physician. My MRI was done luckily. HOwever, she didnt even want to look at it. The way she behaved me was so rude and unhelpful. She made me feel like a trash in the end. So I started crying right after. Then I decided to see another specialist to get help. HOwever, she did refuse to give the referral and besides she said " then we shouldnt use our resources for you". It took me a long time to find another specialist and to get help. The health authorities should take a serious action about her. She needs to learn how to treat patient and get deal with people. Poeple dont have to suffer by such a treatment on top of their injuries
I went to Dr. Mrkonjc with a shoulder issue. She was so friendly and helpful. She spent a very long time explaining what my problem was, giving me exercises and answering questions. I do not need surgery, but she spent the time anyway. I was so impressed with her care.
Skilled surgeon. Excellent outcome with internal fixation of displaced, comminuted, intra-articular fracture of the distal radius. Full recovery with no residual deformity or disability. Friendly and courteous. Even has a sense of humour ;) Would break bone again A+++++++++++++++
I am, in part, rating her for my husband, who went to see her last year...and alas, I have referred to her this year...soooo I am as my name says....a hopeful patient. My husband had a similar experience as a previous patient. The Dr. responded in a very inappropriate way as well. She said "Why were you downhill biking. You aren't a kid you know. You're stupid."....and...."You aren't broken." If I had spoken to my clients like this Doctor has, a severe reprimand and a investigation would occur. BUT, since she is a well known Doctor in the social 'scheme'/politics of physicians nothing happens. I am HOPEFUL, that she will review this site and acknowledge that she needs to take more care and effort in developing a polite and respectful atmosphere in her office. I hope that I do not have to return and write a negative comment upon my visit. I will GLADLY share the positives if they occur. However, I have a feeling that I will ask for another referral to a different Doctor as my husband.
Diagnosed with stress fractures, after a month of confusion, my GP wanted an expert to look at my ankle, so when I received my appointment with Dr. Mrkonjic in less than a week, I was very surprised. However, showing up for the 7am appointment, when the clinic opens at 7am and finding a half dozen other patients already there concerned me a bit. Shuffled off for x-rays (first of two sets, which I know didn't show the stress fractures, hence the confusion for the past month) and then back to wait, I think I got to see Dr. Mrkonjic about an hour into the appointment (total time there was well over 2 hrs). I actually saw her resident first. I prefer Drs who are honest and straight forward, but I still wasn't prepared for the response I got. "You are not built to be a runner, so stop". Period. No diagnosis other than "you're not broken", no plan of action other then to get rid of the air boot, do exercises at home (but don't tell me what) but please come back in 4 weeks. Um...no.
I shattered my ankle, dislocated my fibula and broke my tibia is three places. I was in the hospital for three weeks with external fixation screwed into my tibia and heel while they waited for the swelling to go down enough to successfully preform the surgery. Dr. Mrkonjic was absent for 99% of my stay at the hospital. Never discussed any type of options with me but was very nice to my wife and daughters. She just seems to not want to discuss anything about the injury.... That's all one really cares about though when they're in that type of situation. She was warm and easy to talk to as long as the injury wasn't brought up..... That bothers me. I understand that she's busy but I'm young and know have the onset of what looks to be osteoarthritis due to the injury ( that's what she had told me) but as far as information that was it.
As other respondents have commented....rude. I might also add arrogant and lacking in compassion. I, as one also who has been providing patient care for over 30 years, I am disheartened by her demeanor. the excuse "woman in a man's world" is no longer acceptable nor is overworked. She may be a competent surgeon; however, patient care extends beyond the doors of the OR. Mental healing is an integral part of physical healing. Patients have an inherant right to be informed, this starts with the physician. Her poor communication and her portrayed arrogance, in this instance, only resulted in further stress and anxiety for the patient. After being "assigned" this doctor when admitted through emerg I am however thankful that when it came time for my family member's surgery she realized she was not comfortable with her experience with this particular surgery and referred the surgery to one of her colleagues. This I feel given her demeanor was unexpectadly commendable.
