Ratings for Dr. Earl Bogoch
Very rude doctor. I drove quite a distance to see him, taking a day off work. I saw him because I was hoping he could scope my hip. I took all pertaining information for him to review including xrays, MRI's, fluoroscope and documents. I had broken my hip in Dec. 2006 and was in severe pain. I had gained a significant amount of weight since my accident. The only thing he cared about was my weight. He obviously gives different treatment to fat patients. He didn't bother looking at any of the stuff I brought for him to see. I was 22 or 23 when I saw him so there were years of tests showing how fast my hip was deteriorating. He didn't seem to get the point that I had a bad hip because I got hurt in a car accident, not that I had a bad hip because I was fat. Literally the only thing he focused on was my weight. It was degrading. He was rude, he interrupted me and wouldn't answer a single question. I went home in tears. This doctor is awful. Unless you're 90 lbs soaking wet stay away!
He was a bit old school in his manners towards me. But the surgery went very well. I have a problem with the main muscle being atrophied. He talked to me as if I didn't do any physio. Hmmm yes I did but my hip was very bad and muscles were a problem before surgery. My rheumatologist totally understood as his wife had same issue post surgery. I just feel better communication with the younger doctors I have.
Best and most kind surgeon. He replaced both my daughter's hips as a result of severe hip disease. Her constant torturing pain is gone and she's becoming a 13 year old child again after several years of debilitating pain. He is so kind and gentle to her. She loves him and her new hips are perfect!
Dr.Early Bogoch is such an amazing surgeon. he has the most kindest words and spectacular bedside manners. He talks to his patients very well and explains the procedures and walks you through the entire process so you're not afraid. He really seems to take care of his patients, and will also book follow ups and will call in to check if you're okay. He always recommends the best, now I'm up and walking again thanks to his hip replacement!
The first thing this "doctor" said after his medical student of a nurse did her assessment was "how many other orthos turned you down?" A very insulting way to start considering he was the first specialist I've seen. I have 2 plates in my right forearm & the cause me some irritation & pain. I'm trying to be proactive in my health & take them out before I'm too old and they are a significant problem. The system is sick care and unfortunately it's not enough of a concern for him to take them out. He said there is no need to take them out as I am fine and there is a potential to do more harm than good. I said I was aware however I still don't want foreign objects in my body & I wasn't asked about putting them in. He told me he didn't feel confident enough to do the surgery. How does he still have his medical license is what I want to know? He's older & needs to retire as he is incapable of doing anything he hasn't perfected.
This DR. sent a request for an extra $50. payment the week he gave me a surgery date.(Extra billing is NOT ALLOWED BY LAW!!) The post op exam consisted of walking past a slew of people stretched out on cots and as he passed would ask cheerily, "how are you?" People one ater an other would "politely" reply "fine" not realizing it was a medical question, not a greeting. I replied, "there are problems!" He still moved right on by with a snarl about my just having had "major surgery" but did not stop. The second post op, I left. I was on time and waited nearly 3 hours before giving up and leaving. When I developed an absess and was terrified of the infection, no one in that clinic would tell me my risks or how to proceed. I lived in absolute terror for nearly a week! I am so unimpressed AND I am considering a formal complaint to the College.
I have had the honour of knowing Dr. Bogoch for the past 15 years and never in that time has he ever been condesending or evasive. even when complications have arisen from my mulitple surgeries - both shoulders were replaced, rt hip, and recently had left shooulder re-preplaced and right hip re-replaced, he has been very helpful and knowledgeable and although I may be looking for a quick fix, I know that if I follow his advice, I will have a better recovery. I have a very difficult time believing anyone who says they are rushed, as I have heard him in the fracture clinic speaking to patients and he always give them his full attention. To those whose surgeries did not go as planned, he always explains the risk and will also explain why things did not go perfectly. I cannot expect him to be a magician, and I must also admit my own faults in not following orders, or even having more to fix than he can. As far as surgeons go, try to find another with such an awazing bedside manner.
