Ratings for Dr. Richard van der Jagt
He saved my life. I had very bad anemia that landed me in emergency care and he was the one I saw early on a Sunday morning to check for blood clots at the hospital because the emerg docs had tentatively diagnosed me with a pulmonary embolism and had pumped me up with a blood thinner. Mercifully it was not an embolism. Dr. van derJagt is kind, thoughtful, funny, reassuring, and very knowledgeable, answerd all my questions and he solved the puzzle of what was causing the anemia and sent me to some great specialists - the best of which was a gastroenterologist at the General , Dr. Nav Saloojee who like Dr. van Der Jagt was just wonderful. Cannot recommend him highly enough. A genius diagnostician anda real hero to is patients.
Care delivery is very important to him, Dr. V takes time to his research on patient care delivery, he was very supportive to my son's, and my family and others that suffer from the same disease that invaded my son's body, he is also very knowledgeable and understand the complexity of the disease. I am grateful and respectful of his work ethics. Blessings to you and to those you journeys with you during those raining days, because you will need a friend like him . I did
Dr. VDJ is an amazing dr. He takes the time every time. If there is anything wrong with you he will find it, even if it is not his expertise. I love that he greets you and not a nurse, and that every time he does a thorough review if your file. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a Dr.
High knowledge and devoted to his patient specialist. Positive and helpful with all of my concerns. Patient, friendly and listens and answers all of my concerns and questions. Give me the time I need with every visits. Excellent specialist. Cares a lot about his patient. In remission for over 3 years and still sees me every 6 months. Happy to be under his care.
Be prepared to wait. Typical wait times 1-3 hours. You want a question answered? Be prepared to be ignored or told "I don't have time to tell you your blood levels you're fine" He is a knowledgable doctor with NO clue about bedside manners! He would never make it in the USA where people had a choice of what DR to see.
He is the best doctor , with a mind of researcher he is always upto date with the latest medical beak though for cancer. Such a committed person and you are very lucky if you have him as your doctor. I have been treated by him for lymphoma for two years and I wish there was a way that I could express my appreciation for what he has done for me.
