Ratings for Dr. Joel Kroeker
Dr. Kroeker is why I'm alive today. He took the time to listen to me, and let me know that even though I may have felt foolish in my situation, he did not share my feeling. Some doctors were born to be doctors... this man is a prime example.
Very good doctor, I feel lucky to have him as my family doctor. Very nice, knowledgeable and doesn't hesitate to refer patients to a specialist. I've had 2 colonoscopies by him and no pain or problems either time. With a strong family history of colo-rectal cancer he had no problem with performing a colonoscopy on me before age 50 ( my siblings have other family doctors who refused colonoscopies until after age 50). Clinic staff are friendly & helpful.
My wife has been having health issues for three years now and Dr. Kroeker has been fantastic. He listens, he referes her to specialists in Winnipeg and he follows up on all tests and procedures. Calls the house to discuss he health if something is not right with blood tests. Caring,compassionate man.
I have had 3 painless colonoscopies in the past by another doctor. The one I had today was very painfull.Under sedation I was crying and sobbing in horrible pain that just went on and on.When the nurse wheeled me out I asked her"wasn't I supposed to be sedated?",and she responded that I had been.In the recovery area I laid there crying softly untill the nurse unhooked my IV and I could go home.My husband met me at the door to take me home and I collapsed into his arms sobbing uncontrollably for a few minutes until I could get myself together to walk out on my own accord. I haven't felf such agonizing pain since I gave birth.Maybe Fri afternoon is not a good time to have a procedure.
Is this Doc(GP ) working out of his area of expertise????My sister, who has a family Hx of colorectal cancer and has had numerous colonoscopies, had her last by this doc , doing a "locum" in Fort Frances, ON. She was sobbing during and after. The pain was agonizing!!! and still he continued. This is barbaric and totally unacceptabe practice!!!
