Ratings for Dr. Olumide Taiwo
I had a scheduled appointment and the first thing he says to me after his greeting was that he could only assist me with 1 of my concerns so off the hip I knew I wouldn't be taken seriously. I was forced to pick aND choose what I wanted dealt with so I went with my most immediate concern which was the huge abcess behind my left ear. Ok he gets up to look IN my ear. ..says yeah it's waxy come back tomorrow I'll clean it out. Uhhh okay cool but do you wanna actually look behind my ear to see my concern? He looked asked a couple basic questions then just ordered me an ultrasound to get it looked at. Never mind the fact that I've been on strong antibiotics for 10 days and it still hurts. I didn't even get to discuss my anxiety peeking, my constant migraines or how I have been getting intermittent chest pains aND shortness of breath. Although I already expended myself beyond limits by going to this bunk appointment I now have to either go see a Dr at a walk in or head to emergency He doesn't value his patients enough, just tells you to book more appointments cause regardless if he actually listens he still gets paid for it.
This doctor has moved to Red Deer Saint Mary's Clinic. Avoid him at all costs. I went in complaining of breathing problems (crackling in my lungs) while I was lying down and high blood pressure along with a family history of heart disease. He told me that I had a simple lung infection and that it would go away. I went to another Doctor after 2 months of no change. The new doctor informed me that with what I told him I should have been checked for other conditions and placed on blood pressure medication at my age and appearance of extremely good health or at least told to come back and check in a week but that did not happen. After going for an ultrasound on my heart it was discovered that I had a serious heart condition that with the symptoms I was having could have killed me. Stay away from this doctor if you value your life. If he had done what he was supposed to initially my condition wouldn't have been nearly as bad as it is. My heart works at less than 30% had it been caught early I would have a much greater chance of recovery. I was told that by my cardiologist. I was also told that they were amazed that I was able to walk with the weakened condition of my heart. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR
Dr.Taiwo has been my doctor for a few years noW. He has been so caring and has always went over and above for my family and I. Since I chose him as our family doctor so have alot of my family members and friends. And all I hear is positive things. Honestly I have no idea what some of u are talking about, yes he's quiet but he's also sweet and genuine. I find he is the most comPassionate doctor I have ever met. I feel safe and secure when my children or I are not well and go to see him. & as for the ladies at the front, they have bent over backwards to get us in if we were really sick and they have always been extremely nice and respectful. I appreciate them And their kindness. And yes sometimes u wait but helloo it's a doctors office u can't Predict how long everyone needs to see the doctor.. I'm always in and out of there in less then an hour and a half. But u know if that doesn't work for u, u could always go wAit at the hospital for 6 hours.
he seems like a quiet person, but not knowledgeable at all. i'v been there about 4 times and had to wait 2hrs before i got in, because the front desk staff forgot that i had checked in with them. just isn't helpful at all. he seems confused or not caring at all. i am not comfortable with him as doctor.
Dr Taiwo made my health worse. It lead to a situation where I had to go for emergency surgery. He is always confused and silent. I don't know how he got his degree in medical science. Please, don't waste your time and don't make your health worse by going to him. I Do NOT recommend him to anyone.
I was seeing another doctor for over a year, that "other" doctor was genuinly uninterested in me. I switched over to Dr. Taiwo, and he performed the exact same tests, found the exact same things, but decided to pursue them with a follow up CT scan. Result? Hodgkins Lymphoa, stage 3. I have completed my chemotherapy and am now cancer free. Personally, I feel a debt of gratitude to Taiwo, I realize that all doctors in this community are overloaded, but he found the problem before it was too late. I do take exception to the waiting though, if I have an appointment for 3:00, I arrive at 2:45, but have to wait until about 4:00 before I go to the examination room, where I wait for another 15 - 20 minutes. I am a busy person too, and unfortunately, very little patience. As for the receptionist, what a misearble person to deal with. As someone else said, I feel that I am bothering her when I call, IF I can get through. I really do not like visitng here.
