Ratings for Dr. W. Michael Hogan
Was like visiting an impersonal auto mechanic working on an inanimate object. "OK, it's (surgery) done". No in depth explanation needed to patient. Did not explain the cancer stage was actually worse than was originally thought. However, dr. did refer patient to another dr. said would provide more explanation than he did as the next stages in treatment were taken over by other specialists. Other medical people seemed aware of his lack of explaining, but they also said he is good at what he does. Patient had the feeling dr. wanted the surgery to get rid of all the cancer, and give good news, but did Not want to tell patient that the cancer was much worse and it was only the beginning of treatments. Maybe he is over-scheduled. He works in a three different cities miles apart. The waiting room was always filled with more and more patients needing to be seen.
Totally flat affect, seemed completely uninterested. Didn't know test results, dawdled for 9 months, didn't do anything until it was way too late. Also, stated pt was in remission before even getting a biopsy. Then when when biopsy back he said it was ok but it clearly said there was still cancer in the biopsy report. Then just kept repeating tests for the next several months with the same results until finally it had spread and no surgery could be done. No efficiency or sense of urgency. Difficult to get any info from. Completely unexplainable behavior for an oncologist. Also, doesn't explain anything or return phone calls. Is not even there when he is with you. Perhaps personal issues interfere with his ability to treat patients to the detriment of the patients. Second opinion said surgery should have been done months earlier but now too late.
