Dr. W. Jerome Alonso's Ratings
I found Dr. Alonso to be very unethical. My doctor had made the referral because Dr. Alonso did cognitive treatment however when I met with him he advised that he did not find this treatment effective. When I saw my referring doctor she read Dr. Alonso's report to me which included 'cognitive behavior treatment'. At my next appointment with Dr. Alonso, I mentioned this to him and he recommended a private sleep test for $. Of course I declined.
Sorry to see him go now that he is at the same place but specializing in sleep disorders. I had him as my family practitioner so this is the way some things go. As an MD I am quite sure he will be fantastic in his specialization
Dr. Alonso diagnosed and treated me for severe sleep apnea. I am impressed by his ability to listen as much by his medical acumen. I would classify him as better than average and I don't toss out kudos without good cause. His sleep tech Mia is also very competent and without her patient assistance I am not sure I could ever have adapted to a CPAP machine. I'm glad of it as it has had a profound change in my sleep and overall health. Having said that, I am often frustrated by the booking staff who act also for other doctors in the clinic. The telephone messaging system is a pain. I had one appointment mis-booked, and I had with me the original appointment confirmation, not that it made any difference to the staff. Last visit things had improved somewhat, so one can hope it continues. But for treatment of sleep disorders, Dr. Alsonso nd Mia are first rate.
My ratings apply to having seen Doctor Alonso at the Canadian Sleep Consultants office related to secondary sleep issues associated with an underlying medical condition. My experience with him was disappointing. Please note: Based on this website, Doctor Alonso appears to have moved from clinic to clinic several times -- previously working as a GP. Therefore, earlier ratings may not be applicable to his effectiveness as a sleep consultant. With respect to sleep medicine, there may be better choices in Calgary. Choose carefully.
Dr. Alonso is our family doctor out of Scenic Acres and is cheerful, friendly and knowledgeable. He is also very quick and efficient with referrals for conditions out of his medical domain. I particularly like that he talks in a straightforward manner and doesn't condescend to patients when explaining medical ailments and terminologies. He listens and takes your input before laying out options. The downside is that appointments are never punctual but that can be attributed to patient overload, staff support and the fact that the doctor himself always takes time with every patient. You can gripe about having to wait extra but when it's your turn, you do appreciate that he doesn't rush at all. And to be fair, we've never been to a medical clinic in Canada where we've ever been seen on time, anyway. Would highly recommend this doctor.
