Ratings for Dr. Richard van der Jagt
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.
My father was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma 9 nine years ago. Dr. Van der Jagt was his oncologist from the very beginning of his battle. I cannot say enough good things about this man, as a doctor and as a person. He treated my father like one of his own family members. The caring and compassion he had throughout all the clinical trials that my father had to endure was amazing. My father started the last clinical trial in June 2013. Once again, Dr. VDJ held nothing back. He did everything in his power to have the treatments start ASAP to put the MCL into remission. Unfortunately my father had to be taken off the trial after 3 treatments. Dr. VDJ was incredible during this entire process and ensured that my father would have the best palliative care possible during his last few months with us. We could not have gotten through this without this incredible man. Anyone who has the opportunity to deal with him will be incredibly fortunate. Thank you Dr. VDJ for everything!
I have been seeing Dr. Van Der Jagt, since March of 2009. From the first time I/we met him, we felt completely at ease and confident. From his handshacke, to his demeanor, he exudes confidence and honesty. I have nothing bu praise and reverence for this doctor, as well as his super nurse, Nicole Kay. To be in their presence, is the most confident and secure feeling, a person can have. Their (bedside) manners are proffessional, courteous, exemplary and reassuring. I had never known this kind of service from a person in the medical proffession before and wish that ALL doctors and nurses, were as keen at their craft, as they are. As well, the staff at the General Campus of the Ottawa Hospital, including and ESPECIALLY, the medical staff at the 5th floor Medical Day Care, have always, in my many visits during treatment for CLL, gone ABOVE and BEYOND, with their supportive attitude and courtesy. Kudos to ALL of them, and we're fortunate to have these GREAT caregivers. Paul T. D'Aoust
