This doctor is fine If you have something minor and straight forward that even the clueless of people could understand. I've been seeing him for years and I am one of those people that only goes to the dr. when I really feel like something is wrong and so I really need my dr. to listen to me and take me seriously. This dr. will barely even look at you while you are speaking and basically spits back a prescription without even asking any questions to get to the route of the problem. He quite honestly scares me! I went to see him while I was pregnant and it took him six months before he could find a heartbeat. Then towards the end of the pregnancy when he was doing the regular belly measurements, I asked if he knew approximately how big the baby was and he looked at me and said "OF COURSE I KNOW" and then didn't say anything after.......... so I guess he thought I was questioning him somehow but he was adamant that he had an idea of how big the baby was but of course he didn't share that information and by the way he responded to me, I wasn't about to ask. Just pure ridiculousness! I'd have more confidence in a chimpanzee to give me a proper assessment. I know that sounds horrible but its really an accurate observation in this case!
Went to see him at the walk in clinic today and he basically said he didn't understand why I was coming to the walk in for chest pain and not my family doctor. He only half listened to me and then said that he didn't understand what my symptoms could be the result of and angrily wrote me a prescription for muscle relaxants and pain killers and walked out to see the next patient. Horrible bedside manner and complete lack of insight into my case. I hope I never see this doctor again
I saw him at a walk in clinic.. He basically just yelled at me for not having a family doctor.. I told him I dislocated my shoulder over the weekend and had another doc relocate it.. But that i was reccommended to go for a follow up appointment.. He never even looked at my shoulder. This was a waste of time and I'm going somewhere else.
I was being treated for Excess stomach acid which I did I not have. Repeatedly told him the medication is not working. After passing out and went to the E.R. I found out I had Stomach Cancer and bleeding internally. So for 8 months he told me the lost of energy , stomach pain, my heart slow down ect. was a side effect the disease of excess stomach acid. I had only half my bleed in my body when I pass out. Good thing my wife said we are not going to him and went to the R.E. Don't play with your life find another doctor.
Been seeing him for five years now. Always friendly and willing to answer questions even when I know he's busy. Occasionally a 15 minute wait but that's excellent for fort Mac. Always asks about the family by name. You treat him with respect and he treats you the same.
He's good to send you for blood work but you'll be waiting a while for your results. He just don't listen. It's a turn style office now, his care factor is gone compared to
5-8 years ago. If his pleasantly unpleasant receptionist calls you do not ask questions as her head may explode, she is just a terrible people person. I'm a very reasonable person and feel people should really look around before taking him as your doctor.
Dr. Victor Onwukwe does not listen, or at best does not listen appropriately. He looks at his computer instead of the patient. He has given me medication and has not discussed side effects (which are many). This doctor, when I met I'm was a happy, genuine person who showed he cared. Now ( two years later), he seems to be only interested in churning patients through his office. I am searching for a new doctor in Edmonton to address some serious concerns that Dr. Victor has not addressed.
Lack of connectivity. Spends time on computer and very little eye contact. Appointments run late, not conducive for working people. Staff not polite on the phone, demands to know what reason you want to see doctor before they book you for appointments. Each visit leaves me with chill feeling and not wish to come back.
