Ratings for Dr. Cameron Oishi
Great Doctor ...I've been his patient for almost 2 years and he is very kind and takes the time to explain things in detail ..does not make You feel rushed ..answers all questions you may have...very knowlegable, good bed side manner..very professional... Yes he use to have longer hours ..but he is allowed to have a life outside of work...can't expect him to work 24/7
My elderly mother met with Dr. Oishi initially during her intake visit. Since that time she is being seen by a person she calls his "helper". Does anyone know who this health care provider might be? Is this person a RPN, a nurse practitioner or a physicians' assistant? Any information would be appreciated.
He is my family doctor and I didn't make a mistake choosing him. He explains everything to you such as the pros and cons things about medicine and exams. Not like other doctors(not all of them) that they just give you the medicine and x ray without telling you the side effects. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND HIM ☺
I have been Dr. Oishi's patient since his clinic opened on Wellington Avenue. Although I agree that it is a bit more challenging to get an appointment, I still find that he has been exceptional in providing timely, effective and compassionate clinical care. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Oishi and his team as my primary health care providers. I don't understand all the bad reviews. ! I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion.
I had him as a family doctor for about a year. It was decent for a while but then there were a few disappointing appointments I had with him. Once I told him about an embarrassing symptom and he smirked at me. On a separate appointment another patient was trying to get a fast track 5 min appointment with him (which is incredibly intrusive and rushes him through appointments all the time, makes him really late, etc). The other patient was very pushy and he started yelling at her. It was extremely unprofessional and I did not appreciate having to wait while he fought with a patient outside. He's a good diagnostician... but he can be pretty unprofessional at times. I will no longer be seeking his care.
I am experiencing an immediate cut from Dr Oishi's rooster. This is following a event surgery and having post-operative difficulties. I was in to see Dr Oishi last week and nothing was said. His actions are irresponsible. His office is in confusion. He could have lessen his workload over a period of time instead he seems to have abandoned all the principles that he outlined when I first became a patient
I was one of Dr. Oishi's first clients. I was there a few days after renovations and moved my whole family from my old MD to his practice. Since then he seemed to get more and more unorganized. As my wife told him "your desk staff make or break you". They are broken. My last visit was a followup from a physical. he told me I had CANCER. not a great day. Then I get a letter in the mail saying that "do to personal reason" he needs to let me and my whole family go as patients. REALLY? I cant go back to my old doctor. he is not taking patients. I'm out in the cold. Very disappointed right now. This is when I need a family GP the most.
Dr. Oishi's clinic started out very promising when we joined a couple of years ago. However, we have noticed a marked decline in the quality of patient interactions, service by his staff, and hours of operation. Dr Oishi no longer appears to have the time or desire to listen to his patients' concerns. There also seems to be a lack of continuity from one appointment to the next - he doesn't remember you or your history (not sure he takes the time to actually thoroughly read his own notes) and each symptom/visit is addressed individually rather than making connections to your previous medical history. His office hours are now so limited appointments are much harder to obtain and, when you can get one, they are at very inconvenient times. He used to open earlier in the morning and later in the afternoon - this was one of the draws of his clinic for us. Perhaps most disturbing is the poor office management. They have a missed appointment fee but rarely answer the phone and have no answering machine or email address for patients to use. I once tried calling numerous times over a 2 day period to notify them that I could not attend my appointment and was unable to reach a member of staff. At my next visit they tried to charge me for my "missed" appointment. Unacceptable! When you can reach a staff member they are often rude and unhelpful. Bottom line - stay away from this clinic.
I started seeing Dr. Oishi almost 2 years ago. I liked him at first even though the reseption hardly answers the phone. He served his purpose for a while. I was even getting used to his over scheduling appointments for me. He had me there weekly to get the same prescription for almost 2 years. Then he'd give me 2 months of weekly refills, although he still had me in for "follow-ups" every other week. The last time I had an appointment with him I was going to be late. So I called and called back to back for almost an hour before I got reception. I explain that I'm running late, to which I was told that's okay, there's a cancellation a little later and I could switch times if I like. Great I replied I'll see you then. That appointment went good (thought i). Until the day before my next appointment I got a letter stating that I missed an appointment and it would cost me $20 + a $20 deposit for the next appointment I "miss". So I phoned my map who told me to report the behaviour to the college of physicians in Toronto. Now they reported to me to write them in my own words what had happened, and they will start an investigation. They said that that form of practice is very frowned upon by the College of Physicians and Surgeons. So I eventually got through to his reception and explained this. I was told they'd phone me back. When I got the phone call I was informed that Dr. Oishi was no longer going to be my physician any longer. When my new Dr. Faxed them to get a copy of my treatment during my Oishi experience. He decided to charge me $40 dollars to get my medical history. I guess he decided he's getting my money no matter what. My question is what a rich doctor like Dr. Oishi needs with my disability money, $40, is a lot of money on my budget. Anyway in my opinion Dr. Oishi is a parasite on the province, poor people, and ODSP.
