Dr. Olukayode Fawole's Ratings
Always helpful and friendly, doesn't mind having a real conversation and getting into detail with you. Open to suggestions and willing to work with you on your terms. Always a pleasure to see Dr. Fawole.
Staff has always come across as friendly and professional.
Like all medical facilities/doctors offices, in Ft.McMurray, this office is very busy, fully booked, and things tend to get backed up early in the day. Wait times can be quite long since the practice became established, with my personal waits ranging between 40 mins - 2 & 1/4 hrs. Unfortunately, this is about par for the course in Fort McMurray.
First: I've avoided finding a new family Doctor for a long time, because I have had bad luck with many GP's not being engaged with their patients. However, I realize that the ER is not an appropriate place to go for chronic conditions or for a check-up so I decided to find a physician accepting patients: I decided to go see Dr. Fawole and I was extremely happy that I did so. Initially I was a little turned off by the office because they told me that despite making an appointment it would be about a two hour wait; thankfully, I was brought in to see Dr. Fawole long before this wait time was up. Dr. Fawole was engaged, he listened to my concerns, and he gave me much relevant advice about my concerns. Additionally, he also ordered many tests and was quick to call back about my results. He is an exceptional Physician and I would bring my whole family to see him. I recommend him to anyone who actually wants a caring Doctor, and doesn't mind a little bit of a wait.
He is a very friendly doctor but very busy as all drs in fort mcmurray are, but you definitely need time if you want to see him. You do have to wait at least an hour to see him and no one ever answers the phone. His Filipino receptionist is ignorant and shouldn't be working at as a receptionist because she doesn't speak good English.
He's been my doctor for two years now since I've been in Fort McMurray. The front desk staff are very rude and they mess up my appts every time I book on. Just last week I was supposed to be booked with Fawole at 4:40, only to wait for almost three hours to be told that they booked me with anyalabechi and that dr fawole was gone home. When i finally did get to see him 2 weeks later he point blank cut me short and told me that he had other patients to deal with. Like others have mentioned, he doesn't seem to know how to read test results properly. All he kepy saying to me was the he didn't have any answers for me and that my situation was very complex. What ****!!! I am in the process of looking for a new doctor to say the least.
I'm currently seeing Dr.fawole for prenatal care. I have been going to him for five years and he has become less concerned with his family practice and more concerned with WCB. When going in for a appointment expect long wait times unless you were hurt at work because he will then cater to your needs. He separates his WCB patients from his regular patients and regardless of your appointment time he will see the WCB patients before you even if it means a two hour wait. When trying to book in for a appointment you are better off to go in because you will not get through by phone. If you are sick and it's a emergency go to the hospital or after hours clinic because you will probably not get in and if you do you'll likely have a lesser wait time at the er. He is a nice man but his priorities are no longer with his patients but with money. Unfortunately this is likely due to our shortage of doctors. Hopefully he stops taking new clients or cuts his appointments in half.m
Staff is not very helpful. Made me feel like more of a distraction from other duties then a client. Waited almost 2 hours to get in to see the doctor. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of choices in Ft. McMurray and this kind of service has become common place.
