Ratings for Dr. F. Ogundimu
Dr Ogundimu is a fantastic doctor, she has tremendous experience with treating children. Her approach is old school and thorough for examinations. You can't replace that kind of skilled experience by ordering useless tests. She is a real asset to her patients.
I was referred to this doctor as my 2 year old has not gained weight in a while...she is very tiny but eats more then I do in a day. This doctor made me feel terrible..She had me in tears and ready to storm out of there..She asked what she ate and I told her and she said there is no way that a child that age can eat that much..She said its impossible and told me to stop giving her fruits (really? I asked her so what am I supposed to feed her junk food)...She didnt believe that she ate that much and bassicaly called me a liar. I felt like she was critisizing our parenting. Very rude and very impatient with my daughter. She sent us for blood work and referred me to a dietician (which makes me feel like an even worse parent). My daughter eats very healthy and eats lots but just doesnt grow. I have a follow up with her in 2 months and I am not looking forward to it. I am VERY disapointed with her bedside manner and didnt make me feel any better at the end of the apt.
the first time I went she seemed very helpful sent us for tests, tried to explain what was going on. Even called us at home to send her for more tests. When I went for follow up, she did not recall sending us for tests, or telling us she was IGA deficicent. Has no told us that m 8 year old is overweight, and that this is the problem!!! IN FRONT OF THE CHILD. Yes she has a destended stomach THIS IS WHY WE ARE COMING!!! told us thatthere is something wrong because her blood levels are off, but that she cant tell us what, then should us other blood results and told us to be thankful our child was not that BAD SERIOUSLY!!! (she did hide the the patients name, but really tell her she is overweight, and that it could be worse. This child lives in pain daily!!! Told us she would refer us to a gastrointologist, but that they probably would not see her. We have an appointment in MAY. I wish I could switch but have been told I cannot.
For a Pediatrician she left me speechless. My daughter was born with Craniosynostosis and she told me she thought that she had a tumour when I asked her if it could be cranio. She said babies aren't born with cranio.. well they are, and my daughter was. SHe referred us to Sick Kids and never called after that, we were thankfully referred to another pediatrician. When you're supposed to know everything about childrens conditions, speicalizing in them, you think you would know something about severe childhood conditions. She treated me like I was bothering her by asking if could be the cranio. Well guess what Doc, I wss right and you were wrong!
I am totally speechless and hadto hold my temper badly. Cold hearted if I can not say as cruel. She has a very excellent about ADHD and how to give medicine to my son. But she absolutely knows nothing about raising a child with love and care. Hey doctor, it is easy to turn a child become robot, but who said that it is easy to raise child with love and care. Think think... think... use your heart please if you have any... (honestly, I doubt it). Broke my heart really.
We went in to have our daughter assessed for ADD. She did not look at any current paperwork from the school, tutors or any work our daughter did that we brought in or report cards. She based her diagnosis on her notes from 2 yrs ago (last time we'd been) and looked at 1 pg of an assessement done at school indicating signs of ADD. With this she came up with my daughter being ADD & dyslexic. She then gave us a list of medications for the ADD and told us to research and pick one and come again. No information to help with the dyslexia. She never even spoke to our daughter except to weigh her and a physical exam. Nothing more. My husband & I left confused and with more questions than when we went in.
She diagnosed my daughter with something she didn't even have, even after looking at xrays. We were told by her that our daughter would need surgery to correct her spine so we were all so scared. My husband and i, thinking that she had scoliosis, bought my daughter a top of the line bed, cross trainers, and limited her extra curriculuar activities. This doctor had my daughter booked into physio for a year and then booked us in with a visit with a surgeon from Montreal. Well that god for that, because when this pediatric surgeon saw my daughter and a recent xray, he shook his head in annoyance. He told me that my daughter did not have this condition and the physio was never needed in the first place. Boy were we ever angry. All of this for nothing. She is a doctor i will NEVER go see again and if we ever got referred to her in the future, i would decline and demand another doc.
i foudn this ped not very helpful, my youngest son was in and out of hospitals at a very young age between 3 months to 3 years with which is now diagnosed as exzema, at first we first met her in the hospital and she diagnosed his condtion, than when wegot refered to her for follow up she said she didnt diagnose the condition i merely repeated to her, where would i come up with the term. another year later, my son had to see her again for ADOS testing, in which she had no knowledge ofwhat it was and what the results showed. we were refered to dr.baird, who was already my ped for my other son. he is such a kind and very helpful ped. im so sad to see him leave and now am terrified as to which ped im going to be refered to :(
I am so greatful to have found such a great ped.My son was born with a rare heart defect and she has been nothing short of an angel.She has got us everything we need quickly and has treated us and our son with respect and compasion. We feel like she truly cares for our son and he is not just another money maker unlike some dr's. Her staff is also very polite and on top of everything.
