Ratings for Dr. Karen Wong
I was transferred to Dr. Karen Wong when my GI doctor moved to B.C. Her office did not call me to tell me she would be my new doctor. I have to call and leave messages at that center. Finally after two weeks I get a call from her receptionist telling me I had a colonoscopy scheduled. Which I knew about because the hospital called me the week before and had already sent me the paper work. I had the pharmacy fax over my prescription renewal and she declined it. So just left me with no medication for my colitis no explanation nothing! Called the office to find out why no phone call back. Going in for my colonoscopy tomorrow having the results sent to my GP and looking for a new GI doctor. After reading the other reviews I believe them ! I will be filling a complaint against her.
Dr. Wong has been a blessing to us. My husband had a very bad experience for 1 year in Saskatoon. He was then referred to Dr. Wong and his health (Chrones) has stabalized and has been in excellent health for 2 years now. We always give her excellent recommendations. Punctual, friendly, always answers questions, takes time to talk. Bravo
This should actually be a ZERO STAR rating. My husband is currently admitted at the u of a under this doctor. She is not knowledgable at all. My husband had a CT scan and colonoscopy early in the morning and she never even came around that day to discuss any results or plan with him. He had already not eaten since Wednesday; so by Saturday I had to take matters into my own hands cause even the nurses weren't advocating for him as they should be. I called and had to speak with the charge nurse who then got dr Wong up to speak with my husband. First she said he needs to stay the weekend then it changed to Tuesday then Wednesday and now Friday. I am actually an experienced nurse and have worked in this field before for over 5 years and in an icu for 6 years now so I know when a doctor is dangerous. When discussing his results she said she saw him have the scope by another doctor but my husband was awake and didn't see or hear her come in at all. She kept exaggerating how bad his bowel looked but the actual specialist who was doing the scope didn't seem as concerned. She wants to just to the hardest drugs and treatments and over medicalizes even the simplistic of things. I just don't want anyone else going through this experience were having I have no confidence in any of her decisions cause she can't support them when asked. My husband is diagnosed with ulcerative cholitis and she just keeps saying chrons and I have to correct her. She was supposed to round on my husbands room next cause she had done every other room already but decided to skip him and his roommates and go for a two hour lunch instead when my husbands roommate was literally waiting for a discharge order from her to go home. Please if you can, avoid this doctor at all costs she is not safe!!!!
I was refered to her when my specialist was on mat leave and was told that she had no time to see patients and the closest apt I could get was 10 months from the date (a full month after my specialist would return) I called. Why a doctor would accept a group of extra patients when she clearly doesnt have time for her own is beyond me. She cares little for her patients and seems more concerned with keeping her hours filled up so she is being paid than actually caring for the patients in her clinic.
This Doctor has no business being a Doctor very appalling to say the least! Here are some words I put together: Rude, Arrogant, unknowledgeable, uncaring, ignorant, Phony, daydreamer, and UNEDUCATED. I do not know how this woman past her MCAT let alone become a GI?? I went to see her and she had no clue. I asked her about my medication side effects and she could not answer. My Crohn's is still not in remission and she offers no other solutions she keeps you on the same medication that is not working! I am going to the US and I will pay for a GI to give me new medication! I would not reccommend a dog to her! It is pretty sad that you have to put up with this nonsense and only because I have money I can get better advice and help! I hope she gets it together for the less fortunate people who do not have my option! I will pray that she resigns soon for their sake! All posts on here are true! Please BEWARE! I like the animal hospital bit; it is 100% true! Beware of Dr. Karen Wong!
My daughter ended up seeing this Doctor, she is very rude and unpleasant. I know for a fact my daughter takes her medications and she always questions it. "Hello Dr. Wong, perhaps we should try something else." This doctor is not very smart and should quit her job she is doing more harm than good for our IBD patients in Alberta! I am considering calling the college on her? I am awaiting a phone call from a different GI hopefully this happens soon for my poor daughters sake!
Dr. Karen Wong has looked after my son since he was 17; he is now 19. He has always been a challenging case. She has no sympathy, no empathy, is not interested in the challenge to try and solve his case. She has never done anything to help him. She is judgemental and narrow minded. You would think that such a young doctor would be more enthusiastic and caring. I don't understand why she would even want to be a doctor. It appears she doesn't care that there is a person attached to the desease. I think she should have been an accountant. Numbers don't have a life to live.
