Ratings for Dr. Ronald Esterbauer
Recommended by a friend, Ron has been my doctor ever since I moved to the GTA. He is definitely the best doctor I have ever had. He has a high level of integrity and is extremely knowledgeable. If he doesn’t know something, he will research it before he makes a call. He is not afraid to clarify and correct me when I have been misinformed by the media, internet etc and I like that. I always get the straight goods from Ron and I trust him implicitly for it. Sure, he can be a bit dry but if you engage with him he actually has a great sense of humour! I hope he never retires.
I have used Dr E for many years, he does take a bit to warm up to. But there is no reason for anyone to complain about his bed side manner. Do you want a clown helping you with you medical concerns, or a professional. He also, does not just write a prescription for every problem, he tries to fix it before writing you a prescription. This probably helps weed out the people that are pill poppers! His staff can be short sometimes, but they are busy and its not like you are friends with them and inviting them over for dinner. Dr E has been our family Dr for sometime and my family would never switch, even when they lived 4 hours away, they still stayed as his patient. Also, being so busy, he took my husband on as a patient after his dr closed his practice. They always fit us in if theres an emergency. He also has 2 nurse practioners on staff to help with his patients. I would highly recommend Dr E, if you lighten up the conversation, you can always get a laugh from him!
Maybe he is knowledgeable, I am not sure because he is not talking much. I went to him for 3 times complaining from the same issues through out one year and he kept sending me back with no medicine or solution. I found from one of my friends about a medicine for my issue and in my last visit when DR R E about to send me out for the forth time, I told him about the medicine, he smiled and he wrote it for me. The medicine is working fine, my life is way better.. I am sorry to say it but I am disappointed. He is ok in the normal steady cases but not sure if he will be ok if I have serious issues.
Dr. Esterbauer is an incredibly knowledgeable physician. That being said his "bedside manner" leaves something to be desired. Unpersonable comes to mind - it's hard to feel comfortable around him. If you are looking for a doctor who shows a genuine interest in you it might be a good idea to keep looking. That being said, if you are looking for a no-nonsense doctor with little doctor patient interaction he is right for you.
I am very happy with Dr Esterbauer. He is very knowledgeable. I admit I didnt like him at the begining but I love him now. He is my baby's pediatrician as well and as a first mom I could be very annoying btu he always listen and shows patience. I agree the secretary doesnt have the best social sills but who cres she does the job and always givesme appoinment for same day or next. The office is so nice now and very modernized with modern equipment.Regarding the new nurse i am so sorry i dont remember her name but she is really really good an sweet. I am so happy my former family Dr refered me to Dr Esterbauer.
He's an okay doctor. Not much personality and isn't very forthcoming with information. You have to pry it out of him. His staff are terrible! Rude and extremely unhelpful. I HATE calling or going to his office because they are so rude. I'd much rather go to a clinic than make an appointment with this doctor.
