Ratings for Dr. W. Jerome Alonso
Do not be fooled by the “positive reviews” for this location, mostly posted to their Facebook page. Most of the reviewers do not even live in Calgary! And one of the top reviewers is a page managed by the same office! Although the doctor may be qualified, the “technicians” are just salesmen, constantly trying to upsell, and the front office staff are mostly rude and exceptionally disorganized. I am getting a better sleep because of the doctor and the product, but the whole experience is something I would rather avoid entirely!
I have always suffered with tiredness and not able to wake up refreshed every morning. I went to two so called "sleep clinics" but they only wanted to sell me stuff and not discuss treatment options. Found out they weren't really Doctors there in the first place!!! Thankfully, I was able to find Dr. Alonso who was able to diagnose me properly and give me options that I could try out. Definitely Dr. Alonso helped me and I'm now able to sleep better.
I've been to a couple of clinics trying to get my sleep disorder managed, no luck until I was able to get in touch with Dr. Alonso. I was properly tested, diagnosed and given treatment options by Dr. Alonso. I am now enjoying my CPAP machine fully and have been able to get a good nights rest in over a year now. Highly recommended and knowledgeable in his craft.
Dr. Jerome is very professional and knowledgeable about sleep disorders. I am glad I was able to see him with regard to my sleep problems. Staff and Tech team are also very friendly and accommodating. I am very much happy with his diagnosis and am already seeing some improvement as of this writing
Pros - Gives you sufficient time, is concerned about all health issues not limited to sleep, empathizes by emphasizing the resulting impacts on quality of life your condition may have (so much better than some docs who basically tell you to deal with it) Cons - He loves listening to himself talk and often restates that he got training at Stanford - and it's world renowned so he knows what he's talking about. I wish he didn't shoot down my suggestions by literally chuckling and throwing out a couple "Stanford"s. And to be brutally honest I would probably have a way better impression of him if his receptionist was better. She's impossible to get through over the phone, rude, and seems like she's kinda disorganized. However the CPAP tech is amazing! Overall he's pretty good. Would just suggest a different receptionist and better patient communication
Dr. Alonzo and the Technitians are wonderful. I found that the receptionist, especially on the phone, is very hard to communicate with. She does not listen well, and sometimes has her facts wrong. This may be a language barrier, but it frustrates me every time||!!!
I found Dr. Alonso to be very unethical. My doctor had made the referral because Dr. Alonso did cognitive treatment however when I met with him he advised that he did not find this treatment effective. When I saw my referring doctor she read Dr. Alonso's report to me which included 'cognitive behavior treatment'. At my next appointment with Dr. Alonso, I mentioned this to him and he recommended a private sleep test for $. Of course I declined.
