Ratings for Dr. Den Ivanovich
Melinda is the best! Dr. Den not so much. Our daughter was pooping blood and had lost 25lbs in a month, he told us she was a poster child for anorexia. She was admitted to CHEO a week later and diagnosed with severe Crohn's disease. By the time she was admitted to hospital her organs had started to fail. If we had of waited for Den to adequately set up testing we may have lost her. Does not take any of our concerns seriously. The latest issue with our daughters health was solved with a simple surgery at CHEO and ended 18 months of pain and suffering while having Dr. Den address the issue. Melinda is the only saving grace at that office and actual listen and cares.
Dr. Den is the best doctor I have ever had. I find that he listens well and offers excellent and pragmatic support and guidance. In fact, he diagnosed a serious ailment which may very well have saved my life. He only recommends specialists when necessary; and I have found these to offer a similarly high standard of service.
Den is a fantastic Doctor. The person who claims he lost his passion for medicine couldn't be more wrong. He is compassionate, understanding and oh so helpful. I'm so grateful to have such a wonderfully committed doctor on my side. It is difficult to reach him but I challenge anyone to find a dr's office where this isn't the case! Cut them some slack!
I think the good doctor has lost his passion for the job. If your condition isn't text book he really doesn't want to put in the time to assist you. And if you push the issue you may get condescending comments for your trouble. I have also been sent to specialists in Ottawa when there were ones available right in Carleton Place. And why do I have to call them to find out test results, shouldn't they be calling me? Not sure what happened over the past 8 years, but he’s not as good a doctor as he was (or should be).
Dr. I is my favourite doctor. He took on my expanding family back in 2001 when we moved to Ashton. They guy is always smiling, and has a WICKED sense of humour! He knew little about my husbands condition (Bi Polar disorder) so he took it upon himself to familiarize himself with enough knowledge to keep a good eye on him. I have moved out of the country now, and Melinda is still helping us with medical transfers and paperwork. Yes, the phone system sucks, speed dial helps :) We will truly miss our Doc and his girl wonder Melinda!
Dr. I has been our family Dr. for about 7 years. Both my husband & myself find him helpful, compassionate, friendly and responsive to our needs. He takes the tine to listen and respond to our concerns in a practical manner and is not an alarmist. Although the phone system can be a problem, Melinda is wonderful when you reach her and she goes to great lengths to see that we are taken care of. When we have needed a specialist we have always been referred promptly and followed up in the office if needed. We find Dr. I and his staff to be excellent!
Personable and responsive, he listens well and has good staff. He is connected to the pharmacies so prescriptions are quick and accurate. On 2 occasions I needed to see Dr. Ivanovich a bit faster than would normally occur and I was 'squeezed' in in a very satisfactory manner for my needs. I consider myself lucky to have him as my physician. The only aspect I can criticize is that reaching his office by telephone can be a painful and frustrating endeavor, I have driven to the office instead of 'butting' my head against the busy signal... Thanks
