07/08/13 2 1 1 2 Dr. Hoegle is an extremely rude doctor. Makes you wait 45 mins or longer. When she does come in the room she is in a rush and doesn’t have time. When you ask for help she is very snotty. My daughter is a little over weight (30lbs, age 16) and there was no helping her from Dr. Hoegle. Dr. Hoegle basically called her "fat" and told that she needed to get on board. She has no idea what my daughters emotional state is and for a professional to say that is absolutely disgusting!! I would never recommend her to anyone!! BEWARE!!!!!  Respond

02/01/12 3 3 2 2 She treats my son as a circus clown because he was a preemie, parading him to her interns. Missed that he has asthma. she gave me puffers for him (without explanation), but didn't take the time to train us how to properly use them. Her dose was over the top and my son ended up in emergency because of his breathing. Arrogant Arrogant Arrogant woman!! Won't listen to your concerns.Asked her a question about my son's health and she refused to answer because I hadn't booked her in to answer it! Are you serious? There was no one else waiting. Ignorant, rude, oh and did I forget to say arrogant? Do yourself a favour and find a doctor who cares. Had enough  Respond

28/07/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hoegler and her staff are first rate. My son saw her recently and she diagnosed him dead on and we were sent to Sick Kids right away. My daughter saw her 3 years ago and diagnosed her the same day and we were referred to a cardiologist for her care. I can't thank her and her staff enough for taking care of the most precious thing in my life, my kids.  Respond

26/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hoegler is very capable, intelligent and practical. She answered all of our questions and remained accessible for additional follow up. I have a great deal of confidence in her diagnosis and advice. She related well to my 14 year old son, spoke openly with him and treated him with respect. She has a dry sense of humour and is very pleasant to deal with. I wish I had found her 14 years ago :)  Respond

03/12/10 5 5 5 5 We were worried to take our three adopted(FASD)kids to a new Doctor...we shouldn't have been. She was very kind, smart, and efficient. She saw things in just a few minutes that others have missed. We are thrilled to find her and to be able to get appts. for all three in just a few weeks. She answered all our questions efficiently and without making us feel silly for asking them. We would highly reccommend her and her office.  Respond

27/03/10 2 5 1 1 Beware! On time does not mean quality! She dismissed my hunch (I'm in med field) and lead us in the wrong direction for almost a year with my daughter. She's cocky and arrogant! We won't be going back!  Respond

10/02/10 5 4 5 5 Dr. Hoegler was our families pediatrician when we were kids, now that I have my daughter I was thrilled to be able to bring my daughter to her when I moved back from Ottawa. Docs get blasted for always being late, Dr. Hoegler is very rarely more then a few minutes behind. Her straight forward attitude makes me so much more comfortable, she doesnt have to hum and haw over things, she just knows.  Respond

26/11/09 5 5 5 5 Office nursing staff is amazing. So helpful and friendly, never rude or aburpt. Dr. Hoegler is straight to the point, and has a wonderful connection with children. She is honest and very reliable. I feel so blessed to have her taking care of my children.  Respond

27/10/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Hoegler have been my kids pediatrician since my daughter was born. She may seem abrupt but she gets to the point and is VERY knowledgable. At one point, I was being told that my son may have aspergers/autism by his school/daycare and Dr Hoegler said that there is no way that he does and that as parents we were able to manage him but the school and daycare couldn't so he was being mislabelled which alot of schools do these days. Anyways Dr Hoegler always has always put my children's health first and ALWAYS has the best advice and remedies for anything. She's awesome!  Respond

28/04/09 5 4 5 5 I have had both my daughter and son to see Dr. Hoelger and have nothing, but rave reviews for her. She is straight to the point and knows what she needs to do and explains what you need to do for your child. My children were treated with care, kindness and she made them feel very comfortable.  Respond

27/04/09 1 3 3 3 I will never return to her office. Lacks bedside manner. She is not very good with 9 year old boys. Her office made many mistakes and blamed us for them. Very disgusted with the service and attitude and comments made by the doctor and staff.  Respond
RID: 804837
03/03/09 5 5 5 5 What some call a bad bedside manner, or abruptness, I call down to earth practicality. She doesn't sugar coat her opinion, and that's ok because I feel she has always had the best interests of my daughter (18 months) in mind. I appreciate her forthright attitude very much. Any time we've needed a last minute appointment she accommodates us within the day. I've never had to wait in the waiting room for more than 2 minutes. I highly recommend her; she won't hold your hand, but she will treat your child like gold.  Respond

23/02/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hoegler has been our kids doctor for the past 13 years. Her office staff is always pleasant and I am always able to not only get in to she her on short notice but I never wait more then 10 minutes in her office!

04/09/08 5 5 5 5 This woman is vastly knowledgeable! My daughter was schedule for surgery at sick kids until 3 days before surgery she identified the problem as something very simple and no surgery was needed. She is frank and to the point and that is fine with me. I will trade bedside manner for "knowing your stuff" any day !  Respond

29/03/08 5 4 5 5 I have been with Dr Hoegler for over 11 years. She has been nothing but great with both my kids. She gets right to the point and tells it how it is. I can see some people being put off by that but I appreciate that rather then the smoked mirrors that other doctors give you. Especially when it comes to my kids. When the kids are sick she sees them right away. I have not had to go to a clinic(thank godness). Highly recommend this DR. Number one in my eyes. My daughter is now to old and is very disappointed that she can no longer she her. Thanks Dr. Hoegler.  Respond

14/08/07 5 5 5 5 She's been our doc for both of my preemie kids and she has been great. Her checkups are thorough. When my kids are sick, she believes me and gets things fixed, unlike other docs I've had myself that try one treatment and then shrug and say "I dunno".  Respond

08/05/07 5 2 5 Although she knows her stuff, her bedside manner stinks. Her office called me to come in and speak about my son's medicine. I was told I didn't need to bring my son. After driving for 1/2 hr to get there, she informed me that my son had something wrong with his brain and that he would need surgery. I was shocked because I thought I was there for medicine review. She is very point blank, but no compassion.  Respond

12/02/07 4 5 5 Dr Hoegler is a first rate doctor. She was able to help and diagnose my son after many people before her failed. She is thorough and straight forward. She recommended my son to a specialist for Crohn's diseasem and finally he is being treated. I feel at ease knowing she is responsible for my children's care! I WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE WITH CHILDREN!  Respond
