Ratings for Dr. Joel Oger
I have read with interest the last 3 comments and I think they may come from the same individual. Thank you, anonymous, I enjoy my retirement and one person like you will not be able to compromise that feeling of having been of service to many British Columbians...JOEL OGER
It's a shame there is no option to give ZERO stars! ALWAYS late, NEVER caring/compassionate. After 2 hours waiting for an appointment, I was spoken to in a hallway with zero concern for my health & well-being and was anxious just to get me as a statistic for his money making studies and the shuffle me out the door. It is such a relief that he is apparently now retired so that he can't negatively affect someone's life the way he has mine. I respect he is knowledgable in the field but he should never deal with patients as he is only out for himself and to push his agenda. Bottom line, he needs patients so he gets paid. Healthy patients will put him out of a job!
Dr. Oger believes that his ideas are the only ideas. He is very quick to dismiss symptoms that he does not think relevant and in doing so behaves in a very arrogant manner. He is very narrow minded and should have retired some time ago. I respect his years of contribution to his field of medicine but do not respect his behavior. Time to go.
It was a nightmare. He is not respectfull, make you feel stupid, arrogant and made bad decision about my case. He used really bad words during my apointment. I was really nice and calm but it was difficult to hear all accusation and all insult from him. He told me that I had nothing and didn't help me at all. After I discover with an other specialist that I had An immune desease and that he was totally wrong... with a spinal tap test. I really recommend that you chose a better person to help you.
Dr. Oger is a leading expert in the rare disorder I was struggling with undiagnosed for 5 years. His lab confirmed the diagnosis. He has diligently tried all avenues of treatment, from surgery, MRI's and so many other procedures/tests. He has been trying new research protocols/medications that are proving successful in the USA. Over the past 2.5 years he has never given up and is more determined to assist me and the future patients of this difficult, & progressive disease. He has already made a significant improvement in my quality of life. With him in my corner, I have hope that my life can return someday to as normal as possible. He visits me in hospital, phones me when away from the office, at a conference, or on vacation should my medical condition change. He liaisons with my other specialists, family doctor and local ER physicians when I have been admitted for urgent care to ensure that they understand the unusual and special requirements for my care as I live elsewhere.
Dr Oger was very knowledgeable about my husband's rare encephalitis. He was more concerned and compassionate the the GP we'd dealt with for 15 years. He phoned to see how things were progressing and when we returned to the City for a followup he arranged treatment and gave exceptional care. I truly wish there were more doctors like him. Live long Dr Oger.
