Ratings for Dr. Allen J. Orehek
We spend a lot of time looking over the MRI images that I have had for the last 5 years. All of the neurology teams said that I was normal. Then we were looking and found multiple areas that were getting worse. Dr Orehek set me up with a good consult and now I have been doing much better than ever. I was having trouble with walking and was using a cane, now I can walk on my own and have even tried to make a little jogging..but its too hard at 82.
Anyone who has problems with alzheimer's or memory problems needs to go and see Dr. Orehek. He will take the time to figure out what no other place will do. I was to philadelphia memory center and they give no reasons for the damage to my brain. I no some of the drugs i did in the past did not help it, but there was other reasons. We found that I do not get enough oxygen at night! Its amazing now how i feel. i have lost weight - because I feel so good. I can think much more clear - even thinking about writing a review a year ago would have been impossible. Now with spell check and with google I can find and give a good review for a very good doctor! I cant wait for my next visit back to learn even more. I understand more and more and it is very helpful as I see more and more people who have problems like this with the memory and they do not have good answers. Its not that imporant to ignore the issues but when they catch up with you then you will be having a hard time and their is no one to help you then.
If you are searching for a doctor with compassion, kindness, listening skills (he will really listen!). I have a cronic condition when other pc's did not listen and for that problem I suffered a burning pain for over one year, until Dr Orehek listened to me and ordered the need xray and referred me to a surgeon, he does not have an attitude of being above his patients but rather an attitude of kindness and compassion, Dr Orehek will take time looking you in the eye and listening, I will always recommend Dr Orehek as a knowledge and caring doc.
My family member got injured in a farm accident. The hospital sent him home and he was in very rough shape but they said "that is all we can do for him" - He was only there a few days and they sent him home. Dr Orehek makes house calls to us and this has saved his life I am sure, he had blood clots in the legs and everything. I go to see his office now and the are all very nice and helpful - there should be more doctors like him!
I love how the doctor and his staff really take the time to listen to your medical needs. I told my friend to go to see him when she was having headaches - the doctor was able to get the proper testing done and they found out what was wrong with her. I have a few medical problems but nothing compared to her. She is really a medical mess - but they do just as good for me as for her!
I see some people post below that the doctor orders tests - but its because he needs to! Without the testing they ordered I would still be in pain. They figured out what was wrong with me. Dr Orehek and Erin Smith really did a great job! The pain was in my side and it ended up being in my spine! I had some complex problems after getting out of the hospital where they never told me what I had as my problems.
small mans complex---not truthful---likes to argue---
Please beware when having seeing this doctor for issues related to dementia. He will order so many tests and is very particular about the doctors you see for these tests. In our case, I wore a monitor that showed results indicating I needed to see (only) his recommended cardiologist as soon as possible for a very likely blockage. When we went to my own cardiologist we found the summary report of the monitor showed outrageous statistics and when the detail was requested, it did not even match up with the summary. I could have had heart surgery for no reason! My advise, stay away!!
Dr and staff are really very nice, all have a great bedside manners. Although there is usually a longer wait then I like, it is worth it. I have never met anyone who takes so much time and has the patience of a saint! Yes alot of referrals and tests. This is the best part, not a "here take this pill and return for refills" kinda Dr. he finds out what is really going on to make an accurate diagnosis.Pills mask most symptoms, I want to know what my body is telling me, then pills if needed.Pa's are awesome too. Would never go anywhere else.
Dr. Orehek is the best doctor I have ever found- been going there over 7 years and cannot fault him for ANYTHING. Extremely intelligent, competent AND compassionate- where can you find that nowdays? I can't imagine a patient having a problem unless they were really non-compliant and refusing to take the doc's advice. He always takes time to listen and is excellent at diagnosis, treatment, etc- he knows what to do to get you well if you take the time to listen in return!
