Ratings for Dr. Patrice Langlois
I have been seeing Dr. Langlois for about 2 years now. When I first started seeing him, it was just for injections, but now he handles all of my pain related medical care. The first time I saw him, I was scared. I had read all of these horrible reviews, and I was going to see him to have needles put into my spine!He spent an hour with me answering all of my questions, and going over the procedure in depth with me. If a patient needs extra time, he will give it to them. THAT'S why he is always running behind, because he is compassionate. I am willing to bet that he has spent extra time with every single patient that is complaining. Pain is a very hard thing to deal with. If I have any questions to this day, he will answer them very honestly and directly. Yes, I am still in Pain, and always will be, but Dr. Langlois has gotten me to the point that I am not keeping my husband awake by moaning in my sleep, and I can actually do some of the things that I wasn't able to do in the past. I now see him for 2 different types of injections, and i look forward to them every month. I know that after I get them, I will be more mobile, and even be able to work in my garden! If you are pleasant with him, he will be pleasant with you. He is very much a "you get what you give" kind of man. When patients had to start paying for their own trays, it was because of cuts by the Ontario government. He used to supply them, but at $20 each, he just couldn't afford it anymore. If he did 20 sets of injections in a day, that would be $400 per day! Patients paying for those trays is not uncommon anyway. I paid for them way back in the year 2000 when I needed them before. His staff has always been pleasant with me. I am able to joke around with them easily, and they always greet me with a smile. Again, I have a feeling that you get what you give. I have seen them be harsh with a patient in the past, but really only when they deserved it! He is an excellent doctor who really knows what he is doing. Yesterday when I saw him, I asked if he was going to be able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. He said "no", but that it was a choice that he made, and that he would rather be at his office talking with his patients. I trust this man and his staff 100%. He does not beat around the bush at all. He is very direct, and will always be honest with you about your care
Be ready to wait 2 to 3 hours for your appointment. For a chronic pain Dr he sucks makes you wait in cheap chairs a normal person wouldn't be able to wait 2 hours in. I started working so he cut my madication back so I wouldn't be able to work. . I though that was the goal to return to work . Always rushed you through didn't like to ever change the prescription he had save on the computer just wanted to press print. He was one of the most erigant Dr I have ever met he would laugh at your pain . Am are sure to comment on his proud porchee owner trophy on his desk you might help . It all seemed to be about money at least 10 people waiting people out into the hall waiting . He might help more if you can speak French to him .if you are refered to this Dr try to get it changed . I have been at a new Dr for the last 2 years and I am feeling good with her help working 60 hours a week. Work is so great for you if you can get well enough to get there .
Well my waiting period for seeing Dr Langlois was dated back in 2012. (Could be that the doctor who was supposed to send in the request never did.??) . So my doctor sent a few and I finally got to see hin in 2016 .. I have no regret what' so ever.. In a few comment people say the staff is not all that friendly, but I manage to get a smile from them everytime I go.. Of course the is a waiting period when you go, he has a lot of patients I've been there 5 times so far and will continue going as I have faith the treatments will work eventually.. He is not a miracle worker and dont' be thinking that your pain will go away in ONE day..I'm getting better slowly but surely.. He is in fact a excellent doctor and a very nice man. If you, like me, don't always understand the medical term/language. he will talk to you so you do understand.. Very direct... Thank you Dr Langlois..
Patrice Langlois has the personality and manner of an amoeba -- if an amoeba had a Dr. God complex. Except for the initial visit, when he delivers his well-rehearsed and automatic monologue about pain, exercise, his expertise etc -- presented as if to simple-minded dolts incapable of understanding anything beyond monosyllabic words -- he engages in no conversation, does not ask or answer questions, and seems only to care about the next slab of humanity waiting to provide him with his next OHIP fee. He is not above gouging, as patients realize when they have to supply their own "anesthesia kit," a $20 tray purchased from the pharmacy downstairs to which patients are sent. He seems to find Ontario distasteful (there are anti-government signs on the waiting room walls and his new-patient information includes a diatribe against Ontario's treatment of doctors), but seems only too happy to practise on this side of the river, rather than Quebec, where doctors' fees aren't as rich. He may or may not know what he's doing. I haven't experienced any great improvement yet, but that may happen down the road. If it does, my opinion of Patrice Langlois will remain unchanged, except that I'll simply consider him a necessary evil.
First visit was September 2016, I was diagnosed with secondary condition to fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, and told to increase exercise daily. Follow up in four months, went back today, and it was terrible. The energy in the clinic, is very negative. The staff look tired, overworked, ran off their feet, with piles of files in front of them. The waiting area smells like stale cigarette smoke, with a few patients moaning, groaning, grunting etc. both visits the waiting area is packed. Most people are about 50-65 in age. I must be one of the youngest at 41. When I explained about the lack of exercise due to winter and afraid of falling , Dr. Langlois, went back to what he originally said "Simple, Accessible, Daily/Frequent, Not painful, and Progressive". He doesn't ask much, does he? I was told see him in six months, and work on the exercise once again. I don't like the long waits, and ultimately he prescribed a muscle relaxant once every 6 hours. I don't know if I will go back at this point. Not a good vibe across the board.
I have seen Dr Langlois about 2 years now. And let me tell you, if it weren't for him, I would barely walk. I am very very happy that I have Dr Langois as my specialist. I have degenerated arthrosis and a used disc. I waited 8 months before the first appointment, but it is worthed the wait. I could not stand no more pain which it is cervical too. Thank You so much Dr. Langlois to ease my pain. You are a God send to me.
