After waiting a long time for an appointment I was told my bilateral ear pain "It is what it Is". He only looked in both of my ears and dismissed me saying there was nothing wrong. Today I saw Dr. Lau and couldn't be more pleased by a thorough exam and diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Bosch has problems!
I've had something going on causing inflammation under the eye and in front of the ear for about a year. After waiting a long time to see this Specialist, he told me to "live with it". I see there are 45 ENT Specialists in Calgary. I'll choose to go elsewhere. Good luck to you, Mr. Specialist.
I was triaged for an appointment and had to wait 8 months. I felt that was too long and called the staff. They put me on the wait list and got in much sooner. fortunatley nothing was wrong and i now understand why i was triaged for 8 months.
I had surgery very recently to remove a benign polyp from my throat. At first was worried if polyp was cancerous or benign, unfortunately still waiting to find out for sure. However, it was a pleasant experience in surgery with Dr. Bosch with both a visit before and after, as well as anesthesiologist to make sure I was okay! I would recommend his service for those not superstitious!
I have heard very good things about Dr. Bosch, and he does seem to be a good doctor who knows his stuff. But he certainly doesn't have much bedside manner, and in my opinion he was looking at me as just a throat, and not a real human patient with symptoms and concerns. If you want your problem dealt with, great - but don't expect much sympathy or love from the man!
I have been a patient of dr Bosch for over 6 years now. If you are looking for a dr who is the best in his field then this the the dr for you. Sure wait times can be long but there is a reason for that and it is not his fault blame the Canadian health care system. I work out of town and am gone a lot of the time. They have always been very accommodating to my schedule. I have never been treated rudely at all by him or any of his staff. I have nasal polyps and he has treated the condition effective and with professionalism every time I have seen him. He is always willing to answer any questions or concerns I may have.
I have seen Bosch more than once. The first time he was pleasant and was a happy person. I had read some very bad reviews and thought it was the person who wrote the review that had a problem.....Nope....Dr. Bosch has a problem....The second more recent visit he was extremely rude and did not care that someone else was in the room...like his behaviour was to be accepted. Attitude,and a condescending tone looses my respect immediately.
Dr. Bosch was excellent. I went to doctor bosch with chronic sinusitus problems, multiple sinus/ear infections per year, extreme sinus pain, sinus headaches, problem breathing through my nose, tiredness, etc. Dr. Bosch determined that I have a rare disorder - Silent Sinus Syndrome (SSS). This is due to the maxillary sinuses being blocked, causing the occular floor to slowly fall down due to a negative pressure in the maxillary sinus under the eye. Through catscan results dr. bosch determined he could perform complex medial revision (opening the entrance to the maxillary), as well as fix a slightly deviated septum via septoplasty. I went into surgery approximately 2-4 months later, very nervous. Had a great anesthisiologist, and Dr.Bosch did an EXCELLENT job on both the septoplasty and the complex medial revision. He used an endoscope and catscan to map out the surgery. Waking up was the worst part - hard to breathe. Was back to work in 1 week. Better breathing, haven't had an infection
Terrible. After months of suffering, I was urgently sent to him. He did a very brief and poor examination before advising me that "there is *definitely* something wrong, but I don't know what it is. Come back in 2 months." Devastated, I left his office sobbing because I was in agony and miserable. As I was leaving, I turned around and went back in and literally begged him to help me. He begrudgingly gave me a prescription against his own judgement and sent me away, but made it clear that he was not pleased with me. After several more weeks of horrendous suffering and incredible pain, in and out of hospitals and doctor's offices, an abscess deep in my throat that could not be seen without a scope, burst. I then suffered from a serious infection as the exudate spread through my body. His job as a specialist, when he doesn't know, is TO FIND OUT! He should have done a scope and a biopsy immediately. Instead, he threw me to the wolves. What if I had had cancer? Totally irresponsible.
Very disappointed in this man's haughty, arrogan, condescending attitude. He had me peggeg as overly anxious after I said about 2 sentences, and I was shocked that he was so rude. So unnecessary and unprofessional!
