I was there 2 weeks ago for a prescription. Wait times are horrendous, she needs to stop booking so many appts. in a day. Doesn't matter what time your appt. is she will take walk ins and people with an appt. after you first, she shuffles the files and picks who she calls in first. Sick notes are a joke, i've seen her charge some people 10, some 20, some 30, some 40 and even saw a walk in get a note that she had never seen before and didn't charge him anything!!! Average rate is 20 - 30. I think that should be consistent with all patients. Is she trying to get more money to retire early? If it wasn't for her patients she wouldn't be getting a pay cheque at all so she should have respect for her patients when we have to miss work and have to sit there for 5 hrs! I have never blamed the receptionists. They can only do so much when the doctor shows up for work late. But they take the heat for it. If she can't be at work for her first appt then stop booking your patients appts so early, we also have a job & a life. I feel bad for the people going in with young kids and the kids are cranky from waiting and the poor mother has to try and keep the kids busy. Also the seniors who are there because they are sick. Anyone who isn't well has a hard time and doesn't want to be waiting for hours when you're not well. Without her patients she wouldn't be getting a pay cheque...all we ask is have some respect for our time. Maybe we should be handing her a bill for our time when we leave!!!!!
Had an appointment at 9, doctor still hadn't shown up over an hour later. Was very excited to hear my baby's heartbeat for the first time and had to leave. Very dissapointing. Please try and be on time for your patients, we were very upset.
Had an appointment for 17:00 to get prescriptions refilled. Waited until 21:00 to be seen. She talked about herself and her family while taking my blood pressure. It took several attempts for her to come up with a reading . Likely because she was talking while she should have been listening to the stethoscope. She said it was high and increased my dosages of blood pressure medication. It was probably high due to the four hour wait in the office as I get up for work at 5 AM and came straight to the office after picking up my seven year old daughter and my wife. We asked about a form she was to fill out . We gave her the form in April it is the end of August. She said it will be ready when its ready and was rude about it . Her operation is completely unorganized and unacceptable . I am looking for a new Doctor. I have adult children who are also fed up with the way she operates her practice. I would not recommend her to anyone.
Last year when I went in for a pap her office phone rang. I was spread eagle for 15 minutes well she talked on the phone in Ukrainian. After she hung up she put clean gloves on and didn't even say sorry. For months
now they can't find my file. I have been going there for 20 some years.
Use to be good but you have to expect to be there anywhere from 3 to 6 hours some times longer. I am diabetic and switched he'd doctors and found out she hadn't been doing most of the tests she should have. When I make an appointment with my new Dr. I'm in when I supposed to be and have no problem talking about everything not just one thing an absolutely plese
I am a diabetic and have recently switched Dr. Only to first d out she wasn't doing half the test she should have. Now when I show up for an.appointment I'm in when I'm supposed to be not waiting 3-6 hours like Dr. O and this Dr. Listens to every thing I talk about not just one thing. I don't know why people put up with her crappie and she's getting worse!
Went to Dr. O for my yearly and was sent for blood work the following day. That was three months ago. After waiting and phoning the office to see if my results were in ,I was always told they are not in..........This has happened on many occasions. I decided to go to a walkin clinic and get a requisition for the same blood work. The doctor there called me the next day and said the results were in and I can come and see him that same day which I did. He gave me the results and said most blood work results come back the next day or in two days BUT none take longer then seven working days that he knows of........ and those kinds of blood work are extensive........The simple ones I went for were back the following day...I have to say, I have been going to Dr.O for 20 plus years and she was always good BUT in the past few years she has been going down hill and doesn,t seem to care about her patients like she once did. The staff is NOT professional at all....The wait times are 3-5 hours with or without a appointment. I don't know the problem BUT it is time to find a new Doctor.
