Ratings for Dr. Fergal Donnellan
Had a gastroendoscopy with him. I woke up during the procedure and he treated me really badly. Didn't even say sorry, jut said "it is normal". I have done the same procedure other 3 times and I have never had the same problem... no, it is not normal and you can be a better human being...
Dr. Donellan has helped me tremendously in the past 4 years. He is very professional yet down to earth. I was originally referred to him by my Oncologist, can't say enough about my quality of life now compared to then. Staff is also very prompt at returning messages.
Dr.Donellan performed a biopsy that he took weeks to forward to my oncologist. I saw him 3 times in 5 months for a stent & then stent replacements. The 1st time it only lasted only a few weeks before it needed to be replaced again. I was in a lot of pain, & my wife rushed me to ER & I was in hospital in the hallway with a terrible infection for 6 days before I was able to see him. He told me that If I had contacted him directly, he would've seen my earlier --after the fact. The 3rd time, he told me patients with my condition usually don't outlive the stent he put in. Nice. Consequently my treatment for antibiotics was not given correctly & after being released, I had to be rushed back to hospital for 2 more nights to get correct antibiotic treatment to clear up infection from stent. This guy needs to step it up in both his bedside manner & his performance.
During a routine endoscopic procedure Dr Donnellan punctured my left lung and esophagus. A different Doctor performed surgery three days later for a collapsed lung and internal bleeding and saved my life. After six weeks of recovery I am in constant pain and I am disfigured from emergency surgery. Avoid this Doctor, find another Doctor. Do not take no for an answer!
I have seend Dr Donnellan a few times now. I also felt that he was very friendly and helpful at first. But I kind of feel like he doesn't take my concerns very seriously. He sits and speaks with you mostly, no examine at all. Just some free stool softeners! WOO! :| But after being diagnosed with Celiac, he said he would refer me to a nutritionist. That ever happened, but I did receive my own referral form in the mail...???? I called his office and they told me it was sent to me in error, ignore it. And most recently (Sept 2014) , I came back to him with continued digestive issues. He said he set up an appointment for a scope thingy. A month later, still waiting to hear about an appointment, I called his office, they said they still had me on the wait list, they were booking into November. I called back last week (Feb 2015) because likely they had forgotten about me, and they set me up for an appointment next week. So yeah, probably just a disorganized office, but not my favourite doctor to see.
