Ratings for Dr. Dorothy Ogunlana
I was lined up with Dr. Ogunlana through the Find a Physician program, because I wanted a female doctor. SHE WAS TERRIBLE. This woman should not be practicing medicine. Even at the first "meet and greet", she was abrupt, condescending, and impatient, wanting to rush me out the door. I had a back infection that I tried to see her for multiple times. The last time, my spine was so infected, it was standing right out from my back, and I was struggling to walk. She told me it was a "skin rash", and her advice was "put talcum powder on it". Luckily, I'm a medical student and I knew it was a bacterial infection of my spine. I saw another walk in physician who sent me to the hospital, and I went in for emergency surgery. The surgeon said if I hadn't gotten surgery quickly, I may have ended up partially paralyzed from the damage. It took fifteen calls between Manitoba Health and Dr. Ogunlana to "approve me" for insulin, which I need for my T1 diabetes. My pharmacist was giving me one vial at a time, since my prescription had run out while they "worked things out". Another stressful experience. Overall, I found her bedside manner appalling, her lack of medical expertise frightening, and I began to wonder near the end if this woman even had a medical degree. She doesn't seem to be qualified to do anything. I heard patients in the waiting room also commenting on overpriced prescriptions, misdiagnoses, and the resulting impacts of them. I've since started seeing a new doctor who is so much better, and I'd encourage everybody to do the same.
My “Family” Doctor She is patient and understanding. I went in once with what I thought was just a bacterial chest infection, she listened & told me pneumonia & sent me for some tests & prescribed me medication & told me to come back after medication was gone.. she understood I have PKD & work with a specialist & she's been great with ensuring he is communicated with when I visit with her. She’s not he best Family Doc I have had to date.
Took my child to this clinic to get treated for a normal ear infection. I have had good experiences at Bison Medical Clinic in the past. This was the first time dealing with Dr. Ogunlana. She checked his ear and confirmed in fact that it was an ear infection and provided me with a prescription. My child is allergic to penicillin. When filling the prescription, the pharmacist noticed she prescribed something that could potentially give my child a reaction due to his allergy. She ended up phoning the doctor to confirm whether the prescription should be changed. The pharmacist got off the phone and told me the doctor was adamant about keeping the prescription. When I got the bill it was $76 ---and that was AFTER I had deductions of 80% taken off..The medicine she prescribed for a simple ear infection was $181.00. HAS ANYONE EVERY PAID THAT MUCH FOR ANY PRESCRIPTION???? Anyway, I was upset with the drug they chose so I phone the doctor. She called me back and I told her my concerns about the allergy and the cost of this drug and her response was, "Well, I just prescribe drugs, I don't know the cost! I am not a Pharmacist" I told her, "Well, maybe you should find out the cost of these drugs because that is more than chemo drugs!" She was rude and condescending. I ended up having to call my trusted pharmacist at Costco to ask her if in fact the prescription was safe to take in the first place as there was an allergic potential along with spending $76. I will never go to her again. She is rude, sarcastic and I have lost all faith in her abilities as a GP.
I matched with Dr Ogunlana through the Family Doctor finder program. My first visit was a “meet-and-greet” and after a few minutes of going over medical history, she accepted me as a patient and told me I could book another appointment for a physical. Okay, fine. When I returned for my physical, she was running behind but soon enough I was put into an exam room and told to change in a paper gown. I proceeded to wait for over an hour in the room!!! I could hear voices in the hallway saying Dr Ogunlana was seeing walkins.... all while I was awaiting a scheduled appointment! And being in a gown, I was unable to leave to the front desk to see what was going on... I finally left without even seeing the doctor, with no apology or explanation from the staff as to why I had been completely forgotten. I never returned, and would not recommend.
Went to see her a a walk in patient, I had to remove sutures from a surgery. She seemed to know what she was doing, however for my surprise, she did not do it properly and I ended up with open incisions on both arms, it is going to take at least 6 weeks to heal. Worst doctor ever, did not ask anything assumed what needed to be done and did it wrong, now I am suffering the consequences of the malpractice.
One of the best fema doctor that I have seen. Very friendly and easy to talk to!! She shows she cares wiht a smile when you arrive. She has never rushed me to go out and actually listens to me. I'm so thankful I found a female doctor that truly cares!!
