Ratings for Dr. Hershel Kagan
I have been a patient of Dr. Kagan's for about 16 years and he has been wonderful seeing me through a variety of health related issues and the death of my wife in 2013. His nurse, Jan, was a delight and probably was the best nurse ever. Sadly, she retired a couple years ago and is missed by everyone. Dr. Kagan and I get along very well and he always gets to the bottom of things quickly and efficiently as he is very thorough. I am grateful to have him and the staff at there for looking after me so well all these years. He is never rude nor arrogant to me like some people have posted. I am very happy with the care I have received and continue to receive.
I have mixed feelings about Dr. Kagan. On the plus side he is efficient, willing to listen, and seems basically competent. On the negative side he does not take initiative to resolve difficult problems and at times seems more like a gatekeeper for the healthcare system than an advocate for his patients. Unfortunately I can't be more specific because I don't want to offend him. It's not easy to change one's primary care physician so I try to cultivate a good relationship and get what I need from him.
Seems reasonable unlike others involved in his practice. Clinical skills at the Central Ottawa Family Medical Association need greater attention to detail and care of providing the correct diagnosis. Also doctors in this practice need to be mindful of ensuring patients are treated with respect and listened to, especially from a clinical standpoint.
Terrible "Doctor" and a thoroughly arrogant individual!!! Avoid at all costs and I am being mild in my remarks. Missed basics on my elderly mother and was exceptionally rude to her. Should be struck off the medical record for his gross incompetence and lack of professionalism!!!
Very thorough, excellent records (and on a computer!), follows up immediately (calls back, same day, even a flu-shot reminder call on a Saturday morning!), staff are great, all with great sense of humour. Great doctor, wish we had more like him.
The Best Doctor Ever .. He never forget the yearly stuff PAP Breast exams Etc... Easy prescription renewal his staff/nurses are awesome He's Competent, Caring Kind Genuine Punctual Helpful We recently moved to B.C so thank you Dr Kagan.. Really going to miss him
Dr. K is great! I'm so lucky to have him as a doctor. Whenever I need him, I can usually get in within 12 hours. The nurses are so nice. I went in because I broke my nose (he saw me the next dat), assessed my nose, determined it was ok, then checked my file for anything else outstanding. Before I knew it, I had done my 15 month PAP, refilled a perscription, & had a referral for a follow-up echocartiograhm. 4 appointments in one & I know he cares about me.
