Ratings for Dr. Joel Doctor
I just came home from my appointment (I live kind of far away from Calgary) and it was great. I was so worried going in there because of all the negative comments, but he's really nice. I was taken in right away (the receptionist was very nice by the way) and the whole office had a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Doctor came in first to ask some background information. Then the nurse came in and the test was done quickly and was painless. Then the Doctor came back in and explained the results. He explained everything in detail. Fortunately, I probably don't have any allergies and can get rid of my epi-pen after a year. The Doctor is a very knowledgeable, comfortable, and friendly man and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. I walked out of that place sighing with relief.
I waited a year to get in to see this guy and he did a good job of explaining the allergy testing process. However, my symptoms don't line up with the test results which he didn't seem to want to discuss. A 5 minute test vs. 10 years of symptoms is worth a discussion in my mind. After waiting a year to see him I felt like he rushed me out of his office and I left with no more information than I went in with. Maybe that's not his fault, maybe there's nothing more to say, but I think he could've done a better job of listening. If the severe allergic reaction isn't from the mild allergy he tested for, obviously the severe allergic reaction is being caused by something else.
I took my son yesterday and it was fast, efficient and very helpful. We now know which allergies to teach and a course of action was recommended. The staff and doctor were very pleasant. Years ago I came for myself and did not have a very good experience so I think they have changed the atmosphere in the office quite a bit.
Dr. Doctor is great..not sure what all the bad reviews are about. He answered all of my questions and the lady administering the test was very nice as well. As far as allergies are concerned, I left with the answers I needed. Thank you Dr. Doctor!
What a horrible waste of time. I took my son in to see Dr. Doctor for allergy testing. The put a grid of items on his back to test. I was quite excited to see that there were some that reacted and some that didn't -- finally some answers. Nope. I asked which one is eggs? which on is peanuts? "Oh we didn't test those" What!!! He then procceded to test for eggs & peanuts - both positive allergies. However by the time he did those tests, the other results faded - so no answers there. Other that avoid the allergen he has no answers to reduce the sensitivities or allergies. So very disappointed.
Had to wait a week and half for appt. Was lucky there was a cancellation. Appt was for 9am and was told to take a seat. Waited in the waiting room for 20mins. Assistant staff was very friendly. Doctor came in right away and was very friendly with my daughter. He asked about her history and explained they will do a larger scale of testing including a environmentmental test as she does have allergies. Waiting 10 minutes for and the assistant came back. She was great, back within 10 mins and measured all reactions.
