Ratings for Dr. Jean Deschenes
I was a patient of Dr. Deschenes for 14 years and he was excellent, helpful, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. For the past four years I have been in Ottawa trying to find someone as helpful as he was. I now fully realize how lucky I was to stumble upon him and the Royal Vic clinic, the two doctors I have seen here knew of him and one called him the guru of opthamology and in my books he is! I am searching for a third doctor now and am seriously thinking of simply seeing him again as he instilled confident that he knew what he was doing unlike others. As far as being busy, they al are but at least with him you can rest assured that he is competent. HE is the best and widely know as the best.
Ce médecin n'au aucune considération pour ses patients. J'ai voulu avoir accès à mon dossier pour mon permis de conduire. Il a refusé! et suite à ma demande il n'a plus voulu me voir comme patient. Très difficile d'avoir des informations de sa part!
I get more information from searching the internet than I do visiting Dr. Deschenes. I had to do research and ask him if that was what I had. He does not share any information, what to expect, or even ask questions about how I am managing. I'm trying to get second opinions.
Unfortunately Dr. Deschaines is not very helpful at giving details, or information. He is a kind man, but rushed, and I have been very much kept in the dark (no pun intended) about my condition, which can make everything a bit scary. I've heard he is the best, so I hope he's worth it.
I was referred to this doctor after two specific specialists saw what my problem was. The waiting room experience is rather particular , using an expert doctor like him to distribute the patients into the exam room seems awaste of precious time. But, once you understand the system, you arrive early then your appointment and you usually are out before the time of your appointment. This doctor took the time to bring me to see the films of the various exams he had me pass, explained the results to me and elaborated on the treatment required. Oneof the medications he prescribed diminuishes my immunity, so he took the time to explain what he had to do before I could have the bone grafts needed for my dental implants. If I ask a question he does not hesitate to answer. The only disappointing part is the first doctor who comes in to examin you before Dr Deschenes sees you. Instead of reading your file, he asks all the questions over and over. Yes, I recommend Dr Deschesne.
I was also very scared of the comments found in here. In my case he was a very good doctor and I got examined by two doctors, so it made me feel confident. Yes there is a lot of people, and the waiting may be long but as someone pointed out, it is the system, not the Doctor. Yes he is always in a rush, but I didn't feel he missed anything on my checkup.
