This Doctor never showed up to my schedule surgery at the hospital. Waited and waited and was already minutes from being sedated....no explanation.... no calls from his office to apologize ..........just left me hanging in the pre-op room . For the best any ways I guess ... I found a more qualified surgeon and was real pleased with the outcome. everything has a reason in life........ His office staff is just awful and extremely arrogant....Not a fan of him nor his office staff........

Dr. Kogon is an EXCELLENT specialist and very thorough with his patients. On the other hand the front office staff leaves A LOT to be desired. I realize that it's a busy office, but that shouldn't be their motto to down play the administration. When you call the office (which I dread) you can never reach anyone; if you leave a message on their voicemail, you don't get a call back. I find that communication doesn't seem to be a priority, for any business, anymore, and this is unacceptable in the medical industry. To run a successful business you need competant and ample amount of staff.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Kogon. I found that he and his staff were very thorough and compassionate when I had my prostate biopsy. I was impressed by the instructions verbal and written before and after. I would definitely recommend him to my friends who will inevitably get the same problems as I have.

Doctor Kogon is rather good and knowledgeable, but his assistant Maria is rude and impatient all the time. Her favourite phrase is "our office is very busy!" When you are coming for your appoinment made in advance, you have to wait for HOURS to be accepted. My guess is that if doctor's assistant can not organize busy office work, she is not good enough, and it's high time to think about changing carrier!

Dr Kogon is an excellent doctor,I have been in his care for close to a year and under gone a number of procedures. He is extremely knowledgeable and very caring. I visited a number of other doctors who were unable to diagnose the reason for the extreme pain that I was experiencing .Dr Kogon was able to diagnose the reason for this pain during one visit to his clinic. I found his staff and in particular his assistant , Maria , to be efficient and polite and always very accommodating. Gerald

If not for the latest events, I would probably not even bother rating Dr. Kogon. For the past couple of years my father was Dr. Kogon's patient and everything would have been fine if my father agreed to the surgery Dr. Kogon was suggesting. On the same appointment as my father, who is 75, declined the operation, Dr. Kogon removed tubes inserted into my father's kidneys with one stroke, simply yanking them out (which made my father almost faint from pain. The tubes are attached internally to kidneys through needles and tubes sticking out into external bags to drain kidneys). Only people that went through that would understand the frustration when you have to fight the doctor who cannot prove the disease but only going by assumptions. Another case was when my father’s kidneys started bleeding and he was admitted to McKenzie General hospital (in Richmond Hill). CT scan was done and my father was diagnosed with urinal canals’ cancer on the spot and kidneys tubes (again) were inserted to drain kidneys. A few days later my father was admitted to another hospital AGAIN (this is second time in 2 weeks). CT scan done AGAIN and my father was diagnosed with an acute case of appendicitis (situation would have been ironical, if it wasn’t sad). Not one urologist (surgeons, not less) assigned to my father, diagnosed him with anything close to this, or even suggested that, causing more pain than relief by inserting tubes and putting him through some very unpleasant moments of being diagnosed with urine canals’ cancer and very limited time to live (literally a couple of days at most). By the way, no biopsy was done to get any of the cancers confirmed (neither kidneys (which is not an option and we are aware of this) or urinal canals). I might not be a doctor or possess medical expertise, but I do know that it is highly unprofessional delivering unproven diagnosis to the patients and forcing patients into surgeries (parts of body removed) by any means. Have doctors forgotten about the Hippocratic Oath they’ve taken? Or life just became nothing but business for some people. Watching this definitely makes me want to stay away from any doctor possible in the future. Being narrow-minded is unacceptable for a surgeon of the virtue Dr. Kogon claims to be. He might be a fine specialist and a really good surgeon, but he does not succeed in attitude towards his patients who refuse to play along. I know this review won’t make much of a change, just wanted to share my opinion on some acclaimed specialists out there.

Dr. Kogon, though young for his age, is extremely knowledgable, caring and shows tact. He takes the time to throughly explain everything and doesn't just rush you out like others. I sometimes have a difficult time getting through to the office by phone but when I do his staff is wonderful. His secretary Maria is one of the kindest I’ve ever dealt with, both her and her assistant are very accommodating and like the Dr, very thorough. He quickly diagnosed my problem and I have been seeing him for check-up visits for about 2 years now. I can honestly say that Dr. Kogon and his office are very organized and reliable. It’s one thing having a good Dr. but to be in good hands with the staff as well, provides an exceptional experience. I am grateful for his expertise and highly recommended him as a urologist.
