I am a 34 year old woman who has been seeing Dr. Ochonska since I was 10 years old. She treats my mother and father as well. She had seen me through everything from the common cold to three traumatic miscarriages and two difficult/ very complicated pregnancies. She has always treated me with respect, kindness, and above all, compassion. She has always gone over and above to make sure I got the care I needed. When I started bleeding during my last pregnancy and was turned away from the hospital because I wasn't "far enough along to consider my baby viable", she got me an ultrasound ASAP and made a call to make sure that I was admitted and monitored. I credit my daughter's survival to her! I would never even CONSIDER seeing another doctor in this city! She cares about her patients and takes the time to make sure they receive the care that they need. Keep up the great work Dr. O! C. Fifi

First off, I am a intensive care nurse and I am very discerning about the medical care I receive. I have been seeing Dr Ochonska for over 15 years and feel fortunate to have found her after many visits with several indifferent physicians. She is very busy, her old receptionist was disorganized, she does not like to turn anyone away and thus the waiting times can be very long. However, once you see her , she is a good diagnostician, direct, refers as needed, and I have always felt her care was appropriate. What makes her stand out is her empathy, she takes the time to find out and listens to what is going on in your life to get a "whole picture", essential for the kind of therapeutic doctor-patient relationship that is becoming a thing of the past. I feel dismayed about some of these negative comments as they are petty and do not reflect what a very competent physician she is.

I 've been seeing Dr. O for almost 30 years. I've built a relationship with her, just like every other patient has. I would recommend her to anyone I know. She always asks how I'm doing, how my family is. She actually cares! I cant believe what other people are saying about her. Dr. O has a life outside of work just like the rest of us.

I Have been seeing to Dr. Ochanska for over 20 years. She has always been overly generous with taking her time with my personal health issues, always concerned and knowledgeable. I have noticed that the wait time for appointments have not been as long as before, and Robyn seems to be doing a great job. Thank you Dr. Ochonska for always going the extra mile.

Dr. Ochonska has been wonderful with helping diagnose and treat my illness. Sure, the wait can be long sometimes,but it is worth it. I have never left the office feeling like she did not take me seriously. She listens and takes all of my concerns seriously. Thank you Dr. Ochonska for helping me.

I'm actually looking at all these comments and just so astound, Tabitha has not been there for almost a year. Robin is the new receptionist and I think that she is doing very well, especially from what it was before. These comments are just so mean and hurtful. She is a DOCTOR- there WILL ALWAYS BE WAIT TIMES to be checked out. If what you are experiencing is that urgent you need to go to the hospital an stop complaining. Dr. O is great, she always tends to my needs and is nice and friendly with her patients. You people need to stop complaining.

Been a patient of dr ochonska for over 25 years. Use to be a caring and knowledgeable doctor but this is far from being the case and has been for years. I see her when iam sick and I thank god its not often. She is very money hungry, doesn't want Tabitha to bring patients to waiting room because she wants to pick and choose who she wants to see first. Tabithas grouchy because shes underpaid. Those who have the nerve to say they waited a short while and that she's late because of hosp visits need to know she doesn't go to hosp shes too busy spending time on the phone or busy running her morning errands. I'd feel terrible as a doctor doing this to my patients. We are her paycheque...trust me her paycheques are huge...i wonder why. She needs to get help she is obviously not thinking straight. I see her because I have no other choice how sad is that. Someone needs to plant cameras in her waiting room in order to prove that what patients are saying is the truth. Dr o. Please care about your patients u chose your profession we didn't. Be more caring and respectful...instead of being greedy. Sad very very sad. You need to look yourself over and change your I thoughtful ways. Use to respect and like u but feel used when u treat people so badly.

I've been going to see Dr. Ochonska for over 20 years. She has changed so much its scary. Very unprofessional looses files, doesn't make appt for patients who need to see specialist. Very abrupt and mean yes I said mean. She yells at you and says if u want test results u need to make appt to see her...of course dr visit means more money...plus another 4-6 hour wait. Trust me i go to see her when iam sick or need to go for physical. Thank god its 2-3 times a year. I feel very sorry for patients who are not well and need to spend hours sitting around around other sick patients when u can be out of there quicker and return home to a comfortable bed instead of a hard uncomfortable chair. Yes we should be looking for a new doctor...easier said than done. Trust me if they're were more doctors out there taking more new patients it would be a blessing. She doesn't deserve to be carry the title of doctor she should be called money hungry doctor. she would never sit her u know what for 6-8 hrs in any office. She does spend lots of time on phone and was spotted shopping early morn when she had a room full of patients waiting for her. She needs to be reported to medical board. Iam still looking. She needs to realize or care more about her patients. If it wasn't for us she wouldn't have a job. And yes its no wonder she's the top paid doctor in Winnipeg. Sad...terribly sad.

Last time I had booked an appointment with Tabitha-last appointment of the day is 4. I said Tabitha she may have last at 4 but I am never seen ever on time. So I said I work until 5- I arrived at 5:30 didn't leave until 8 pm.... My usual wait time if you are foolish enough for a 10 am appointment-I left at 5 pm-that is correct. Record time for waiting-7 hours...quadruple booked patients, accepting walk ins yes no respect of the patient's time. Consideration -Zero-moaning of divorce of husband, pension issue of splitting assets...yes I make just above the poverty line-yes I feel sad for someone with a house in Royalwood, privately educated daughter and the jewelry she wears. Yes I feel your pain. If I had treated a customer as badly as yourself-I would be unemployed. Doctor's results were lost and I had to tell her If they found anything...the office a bomb going off would clean that disaster a whole lot better than the sty it is-so far my file has been started 4 times. Have been waiting for a referral for over a year.. Advice find another doctor I have.

Every time I have ever seen her for anything, she quickly checks you out and sends you off with a perscribition that she seemed to really pay no mine to writing. She once asked to know the exact date I started my perscribition so I pulled out my phone to check the calander. She actually yelled at me to put my phone away or I could leave her office. But yet she will answer her phone whenever it rings. Completely rude and I sensitive. Don't feel she really pays any mind to her patients at all.
