Just had colonoscopy at the San Penn performed by Dr Orrom. Great experience given what it was, team and Doctor pleasant professional and personable. Most impressed with ability to watch procedure and ask questions/get answers in the moment.

I am a fellow physician and very recently had a colonoscopy by Dr Orrom. I found him to be very pleasant, calming, caring, and needless to say he is highly skilled in this area. It was definitely worth the long wait too.

I am rather amazed at the last two comments since they don't seem to be referring to the doctor who did my rectal cancer surgery. I got all the info that I needed about the surgery both before and after. I did have some issue with the wound but the staff at VGH dealt with that and I then progressed will am in remission. If anything I found him distracted sometimes but put that down to scheduling issues and the need to do so much in a very specialized area.

No compassion. No empathy. No explanations/advice. No sense of urgency for patient discomfort. Very upset . New patients for his specialist practice need more then 12 minutes. First time patients can be nervous about rectal issues. No notes, no real help and wait a year for testing. Wow

Dr orrom has done 3 of my surgeries this year. He is not a doctor that believes in perventative antibiotics even for the instances that would need them. Each surgery I had my incision has has got infected and opened up and had to have more work done on it again. Even when I asked to be out on them for my last surgery he gave a firm no and it happened again. his response to it every time is 'sometimes these things just happen'. Now I have to spend months to heal a surgical wound that could have easily be prevented

I went to dr. Orrom with a pilonideal cyst. 2 years and 3 surgeries later, my wound is still not healed. before the original surgery he assured me that healing would take five to seven weeks. At this point dr. Orrom has completely written me off as a patient, not that the follow up appointments that lasted five minutes and consisted of a shrug and the comment that "i have no idea what is wrong" were very helpful. Before my last appointment I did some research on my wound type and found a different type of surgery that had a much higher rate of success and a much faster rate of healing. When I asked him about that type of surgery he admitted to knowing about it, but stated that I was no longer a candidate for that type of surgery, due to the previous 2 surgeries changing the type of wound. I would say that Dr. Orrom did not preform this other type of surgery for my original surgery because it would take him longer. I would just like to say thanks for putting your schedule over my pain and suffering. If you have this surgeon, hope that you never have a complication due to his work. After he is done, he will not give you the time of day.

Wonderful surgeon. Very knowledgable and highly regarded. I was referred to him by the ER for a rather unpleasant condotion. I was cautioned that he doesn't have the best bedside matter, but I found that not to be true. Dr. Orrom took the time to explain the plan A and plan B of my surgeries, and readily calmed my anxiety. I also found he had quite a quirky sense of humour. He is also very accessible for any pre and post op questions. I really cannot say enough great things about Dr. Orrom.

Dr. Orrom performed my laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) one week ago today, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I've had minimal post-op pain, and the incisions are already healing nicely. The doc himself was fantastic to deal with, as were his staff. I found Dr. Orrom to be kind, personable, and professional. He really put me at ease about my surgery. His assistant Michelle was also very helpful in answering any questions I had. If you need surgery, you are in excellent hands with Dr. Orrom!
