Ratings for Dr. Joel Werier
For a year, I was told nothing was wrong. Until an MRI confirmed, I had a rare type of tumor. I was referred to Dr. Werier and couldn't be happier. He took control of my care and was confident in our plan of attack. His confidence was key in my positive approach. I've had 4 tumours, countless surgeries and I'm now 5 years with no recurrence. I've been discharged from his care but I couldn't be more thankful of his expertise and commitment to my care. Sure, his clinics run late but that's because he cares and wants to make sure everyone gets the attention they deserve. Bring a book and be thankful that we have such a committed surgeon, researcher and individual in our community.
I had great visits with Dr. Werier. At the first appointment it was a bit long but I had to go for X-Rays and met with one of his staff members which to me is very normal. I had my surgery appointment date before I got home. The surgery was on time and all went well. Met with Dr. Werier less than three weeks after surgery which is very decent and the necessary follow up have all been planed already. Thank you Dr. Werier and to your great team.
Gosh, it's been a runaround with this doctor. He's very proud of the fact that he is one of only 6 orthopaedic oncologists in Canada and as soon as he decided my tumour was benign, I went right to the bottom of his radar screen. He never read my notes before I saw him, tried to fob me off with "let's give it time" despite my pain, made me feel very indisgnificant and that he had more important things to do. I have had two surgeries now with him. I'm now 3 weeks post surgery and the tumour is back, bigger than ever. He's now referred me to someone else. His office doesnt inform if there are changes in treatment plans, he even wrote the wrong foot down on my last surgical consent form. Yes, he's a very busy man and he has no doubt saved lives, but he does not come across as caring , he's very dismissive and I don't feel he could even be bothered when he did my last excision. Waiting now to see the next orthopaedic surgeon that he has now referred me to. We are 2 years into this now.
he's a great surgeon, but he made a terrible mistake with my case, and if one of the other surgeons hadn't caught it, god knows what could have happened....also, waiting to see him before my surgery, he was almost 3 hours late for my appointment and couldn't care less. be very careful with him
Wonderful doctor, we would recommend highly him. Very personable, sense of humor and very talented surgeon. He did a wonderful job with our son, removed all of his cancer and our son is happy and healing beautifully! The staff throughout the hospital are always courteous and very caring and helpful!
