Ratings for Dr. Ronald B Sorensen
Stay away from this doctor. He may have been considered the best at one time by the community but he is far from it. He may have a strong work ethic but he fails to take care of himself and his patients today. He has been considered leading edge in procedures but I question the results of his experiments and surgeries. He has little knowledge or consideration for his patient's pain needs. Do not let him convince you to do a prostate biopsy without anesthetic or freezing, insist that it be done in the hospital where he can be held accountable for what he does. It is 2017 mitigation of pain during any procedure should be a requirement for any doctor.
My Husband needed to see him and is still seeing. The first visit I went with, both the staff and Dr. Sorenson very friendly and great to us. He was/is very professional and takes time with you, You may have to wait in his office that is because he makes sure every patient is fully taken care of during the appointment and that may take longer than expected. I would recommend him to anyone.
In 1985, I had an operation to remove an infected right ureter which was left in after an unnecessary (so I was informed by Dr. Robert Broad who had performed that particular operation) right kidney removal procedure in 1959. What a mess! Prior to the operation, which took a remarkable 8 hours, my abdomen was perfectly firm and flat with excellent muscle tone. ( had given birth to two daughters - neither of them by caesarian section.) When I woke up, Dr. Sorenson standing over top of me. He said, "I wanted to be here when you woke up to see the look on your face when you noticed the difference." My abdomen skin was in a very uncomfortable position - an unattractive and painful flap of sagging skin. (The flap is still there, despite regular exercise and a careful diet. The incision area is, still, painful to this day. At times, there is infection evident in the small opening at the bottom.) When asked why he did it, I was informed, "My wife would not have appreciated seeing someone who was in such great condition. Anyway, with lots of exercise the muscle will go back into shape." It never has returned to the original condition. When I asked if it could be fixed, he told me, "The incision would have to be reopened and I don't feel I want to take the time to do that." Dr. Sorenson, also, made sure to tell me, "There's no need to contact the College as you signed away your right to make a complaint when you signed the waiver prior to the operation being done." Dr. Sorenson's deliberately arrogant and degrading attitude and behaviour are dangerous. I don't remember having a follow-up appointment. The office never called me back to schedule one. (I see from these ratings nothing has changed regarding either the doctor or his staff.) The College needs to investigate him. Dr. Ronald B. Sorenson should be held accountable for his negligence and unnecessary (and open) cruelty. He acts as if he takes pride and joy in mistreating patients because he feels/thinks he has the POWER to do so, without any remorse.
Treated my dad for prostate cancer back in 1994. After removal of the prostate he decided there was no need to follow up, that he was confident he got it all. My dad went back to see him and suggested some kind of follow up treatment and to tell him he felt uncomfortable in that area still after six months. He told my dad he was fine and to stop being a hypochondriacs. My dad left and passed away another six months later from non Hodgkin's lymphoma secondary to prostrate cancer. His arrogance and rudeness killed my dad.
Don't be fooled by this doctor. he shuffles appointments and people to maximize his income. he doesn't care about his patients at all and the same is true of the office staff. they are rude and unprofessional. Dr. may be skilled urologist but the negatives that come with that overshadow his abilities. Stay clear of this doctor and his office. And by the way, if you must go to the office be prepared with a toonie for parking in his mostly vacant lot - it's not free. Also be prepared to wait in the large waiting room for 3-4 hours. Appointment times mean nothing to him or his staff.
Did my Husband's surgery for an impacted kidney stone a few years ago and I would highly recommend him. He took us on an emergency basis around Midnight (for a 4 hour surgery)after the stone size being misjudged at another ER. His follow up has been wonderful, sometimes the wait is long to see him, but well worth it. He even gave us his private cell number in case we need it. Can't say enough about him, if you have a chance to go to him take it!
