Ratings for Dr. Fergal Donnellan
Have been seeing this doctor for 18 months with 4 procedures gastroendoscope and ERCP visits to his office are brief asks how you are feeling and result and next step problem is he says I need to see you next month or in a few weeks my staff will call will a date for another ERCP terms like high risk for cancer you wait for staff to call with a date and time 2 weeks you call staff they give you a date remembering Dr wanted to see you in a couple of weeks you get an apt 1 month later the day come office calls to cancel and new date new date is approaching and staff call with new time day arrives and staff call again to cancel with new date Dr implies the original test gastroendoscope results and pathologist discussion indicate ERCP should be done soon and you wait 4 months due to hAving to cancelled apt I can see cancelling 1 but this has happened on several occasions 5 times with different procedures would be ok if you lived close or didn't need to arrange a ride take days off without pay only to be cancelled
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!
