Ratings for Dr. Francis Joseph O'Toole
We were referred to Dr.O'Toole after my 2 month old was hospitalized with mono which caused gi issues and took 3 weeks for McMaster to diagnose properly. My son is now 6 months and Dr.O'Toole has followed up with us several times to ensure he is doing well. He always takes the time to answer any concerns I have and is incredibly sweet with my baby. One of the best doctors ever!
I had the privilege of meeting dr. Otoole in the Mac er last night. I was there with my 8 month old daughter. He was absolutely thorough, pleasant, and showed genuine care for my baby and myself. I didn't feel rushed, and have never had a doctor be so compassionate. He took the time to read my daughters medical history, and reassured me of my decisions that I've made in her care.
We had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with this Dr who needs to be taken down a few notches. He's an arrogant man with no bedside manner and evidently no real concern for his patients or their parents. When I tried to address my concerns with McMaster they had a little huddle and he approached us in a very confrontational and arrogant manner. He showed little respect for our privacy and was not interested in trying to find a solution at a very stressful time in our lives. He can take a feather out of Dr Ramsays hat. Our experience at McMaster was not great. The hospital was dirty compared to JBMH.
Terrible doctor!!!! I have absolutly nothing positive to say about this man. He comes in acting like he can help and understands your concerns and then in the next breath has no time to come to follow up. I STRONGLY advise everyone reading this to use word of mouth to get the real word out about this "half fast" "doctor". Also, I would also advise no one to take their children to McMaster Childrens Hospital with a sick or hurt child, the staff is terrible!! Now I know why doctors get mal-practice insurance :(
LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr O'Toole, we have been seeing him every 3 months for 2.5 years. I don't know how we or my daughter would have gotten through these hard times without him. He is an amazing doctor, and treats my daughter with the patience, care and understanding she deserves. He never hesitates to answer any of my million questions and always calls back if we have a question. We are so lucky he was on call the first time we went to MAC emergency!!!
