Ratings for Dr. Kenneth Logue
I was passed to Dr. Logue after another physician in his practice passed away. I was a bit weary but now have confidence in him. Although he can be a bit abrupt at times he seems to be knowledgeable and know what he is doing. He's very busy and hard to get into (3.5 months wait time for a physical) but that's got to mean something. He's in demand and has a thriving practice.
His staff have always gone out of the way for me and so has he. He saved my life many times since my first appointment,physically and mentally. Sending me to the right people when I needed extra help. He calls it like it is. Is he really on time? No. But he takes all the time he needs when he gets to me so it is fair. You learn how to book if you have to book around work. If you need to squeeze in you just have to wait but you know you get your time. He's called to check on me and listens to me. We need more doctors like him.
Dr. Logue was my family physician for about 16 years. His bedside manner was outstanding. He had empathy, was organized and thorough and genuinely cared. Unfortunately, he referred me to a specialist in his building. His referral was arrogant, condescending, lacking empathy and totally ineffectual. Dr. Logue's referral lacked basic and good medical practices. Dr. Logue is a wonderful family physician. However, he should monitor his referrals more closely. I felt demoralized by the physician he referred me to. Unfortunatey, I left Dr. Logue because of this unfortunate referral. I should have communicated my experience with Dr. Logue and saved his other female patients the same misery that I experienced with his referral. Dr. Logue is a really good family physician. However, you might want to monitor his referrals.
For me, Dr. Logue has been somewhat helpful, and I see that most reviews on this site are positive, but unfortunately has treated me in a manner that fails to keep to the standards of The Royal College of Physicians of Canada. When I first went in to see him he was more than beside himself when I gave information pertaining Medications I receive for anxiety and depression. He basically shouted at me saying "if I was working at St. Michael's and I gave an 80 year old these medications I would be fired!!!!!!" First of all we were not in a hospital and I was 55 at that time, which clearly was disgraceful, dishonourable and unprofessional. Amongst the somewhat usual "complaints" or "conditions" ( For very definite reasons I have become very wary of using terms describing "what" a patient goes to a Dr. for, or what the Dr. s job exactly is) I had terrible pain due to 3 growths, proven to cause nerve damage in my L4 and L5 regions and needed some medication, as previous Doctors had done at the St. Clair Medical Associates had done, without any significant problem. He always treated me with suspicion, unlike any previous Doctors had done around this treatment. Unfortunately he completed missed the neuropathy and thought that he was treating me for serious arthritis in my left arthro-clavical joint and it wasn't until March that I went in with the report furnished me from an MRI done in 2010 showing Degenerative Disc Disease at multiple levels. I had been in so much pain from the neuropathy in my lumbar region that I had to say to him up front at an appointment in March 2014 " Dr. Logue, I feel that compassion is the Mother of Medicine. "When he saw the report that mentioned fatty growths, a filum terminale and other issues in my Lumbar region he claimed he thought he had been treated me for only the A/C problem he increased the dosage of pain medication as befits such a situation. However, he generally left me with the impression that he didn't want to see me in the office. The pain would sometimes get ahead of me so I took not an alarming rate more of medication which he gave me a TERRIBLE amount of distrust during highly stressful appointments for me. Not treating a patient or caring for a patient's problems caused by nature I was appalled is certainly grounds for filing a complaint with the CPSO. Not only this but his secretaries are absolutely the most vicious, rude, judgmental and VERY poorly skilled as opposed to what I remember them being like 10 yrs ago ( I have been at this practice since the early 90's). As for Dr. Logue's punctuality, and hour or an hour and a half wait was the usual, once causing me to leave an appointment as I teach school and cannot leave the school in the lurch. I think both the public who read this as well as he himself ought to know better after they read this 100 per cent truthful account.
Ken has been my GP since 1987. I spent a period of time out of Ontario and yet when I returned in 2012, he took me back immediately. I am forever grateful as I have recently developed significant ongoing chronic medical issues. Ken is incredibly knowledgeable and yet does not hesitate to bring in other medical professionals when necessary. He is NOT a prima donna. HE encourages me to ask questions. He encourages me to challenge myself and calls me on my own crap. He is serious and to the point, but ALWAYS has time when time is necessary. While I hesitate to commit him to this with others, I had a significant care opportunity which had serious time constraints, when Ken became aware of the constraint he CALLED ME AT HOME ON THANKSGIVING DAY, to ensure that I was aware of what I needed to do to obtain the best care I needed. He is a real class act.
My first family doctor was fantastic and when he retired from his practice I ended up with two doctors in a row who were sub-par. I thought I would never find another one like the first one. Then I got Dr. Logue. Dr. Logue is probably even better than my first, fantastic, doctor. He is courteous, interested, friendly, thorough and apologizes when he is late, (which is understandable given sometimes doctors need to see someone on short notice that is begging for an appointment). He's run tests that are supposed to be run for an ailment that I found one of my other doctors never ran. He is highly recommended and everyone should be so lucky to be able to have a doctor like him.
Ken Logue is a first rate doctor--sympathetic, careful, unsentimental, objective, good at giving both good and bad news, excellent on follow up and prevention, excellent as a listener and in allowing the patient options. He is also pleasant and open and he impresses one as a doctor who keeps up with trends; he does not sit at his computer but gets up and does physical examinations; his great strength is preventive measures; that is, he looks at your age and determines from factors if certain diagnostic tests should be done to prevent disease; he offers sound counsel when he is asked and is completely positive toward the aged, those of different sexual orientation and manner. Highly recommended for both middle age adults and older ( I have no knowledge of his work with children)
I just had my first appointment with Dr. Logue, as he is replacing my ailing former doctor. he's pretty amazing, took the time to educate me on a serious health issue i'm dealing with, and came across as very honest and highly knowledgeable. he's the first doctor i've had that i feel i can trust, and whose main concern is the health of the patient. i'm also pleased to read all these other wonderful reviews that confirm my initial impression.
