Very poor experience with Dr. Wherrett! She booked me in for my surgery at Oshawa General. I checked in on time at 10:30 am and was checked in waiting for the OR waiting room. I was called in at 12:30 pm but then sent back out stating Dr. Wherrett wasn't ready for my 1:00 sugery. They made me wait until 2 pm (3hrs wait for surgery) before even getting to the OR waiting room and told me it would be another hour... 4 hours. I have now been without food or deing since 10:30 pm the night before...going on 15hrs and 30 mins and i was asked to wait another hour. When i caused a fuss with the charge nurse they told me that Dr. Wherrett first and second surgery of the day were late so she doesn't even know if she will have time to do my surgery today. They asked me to wait for another hour when i told them to give me my clothes so i can walk out on the "surgery". I called Dr. Wherrett's office and requested a refund for the days parking. What a mess!!!! Why make a patient who shows up ON TIME for her surgery wait 4 hours while late patients get thru. Then tell me she might not have time to complete my surgery because she isn't sure if she will be able to stay overtime to complete it. GARBAGE HOSPITAL AND GARBAGE DOCTOR!!!!
I LOVE Dr. Wherrett!!!! She is personable, always shows me kindness and is approachable ro any concerns I may have. She not only takes the time for my medical concerns, she takes the time to understand me! I cannot say enouhh good things about her and the receptionist!!!! I always have a skip in my step when I go for my yearly check ip at this office!!!
worst hospital ever if I explained why, I would be writing a novel here. all I can say is the staff is very inconsiderate rude and they tried saying i was suicidal and violent when i was in extreme pain due to having to wait from 12 pm to about 7 am with a gallbladder issue and having a panic attack due to having a traumatic experience there when i was 14 and i was treated like dirt then as well the doctor may of taken out my apendix but he left scarring damage below my belly button and a little further down which made it very trouble some for the doctor to remove my gallbladder ten years later. more or less both times i was there the staff as I said ignorant some were very inconsiderate and if i had my choice i would never go back there.
Many nursing staff have personality conflicts with patients. Nurses sometimes mistreat patients by refusing to administer pain medications within reasonable times. Have also been assaulted by nurses for blood samples by physical force. (Trying to take blood from a site known to cause paralysis and nerve damage.) Floor staff managers who show nepotism and favoritism to nurses rather than address patient concerns!!!
Average to excellent car depending on the area of the hospital you are in. The emerge is extremely busy, and full of stupid people with the sniffles. People, if you don't have a cardiac or internal issue, bleeding or broken bones, go to one of the million walk in clinics we have available. Your wait will be shorter and your doctor and nurses won't be miffed at you for calling your kids cold an "emergency". That said, my father took I'll and made several trips to the ER by ambulance. Unfortunately due to the business and lack of communication, a couple of those trips could have been avoided. In addition, they need to remember to discuss the CCAC with elderly patients and their attendant. Certain conditions and the elderly require follow-up care at home and this should be attended to by the CCAC if they left alone. Other than that when he was submitted to intensive care the staff there were beyond compare. Compassionate understanding extremely knowledgeable cooperative honestly I just cannot say enough about the stuff in critical care. The stuff on the medicine floor is excellent as well. All needs are accommodated. No question is to trivia. There is no time that you can call in the daytime to check on someone that you are ever really discussed as I have experienced elsewhere. They are always extremely obliging unless they are in the middle of a shift change in which case they will inform you that they are in the shift change and ask you to call back or that they will return your call. They are again, Beyond compare. People knock this hospital constantly however I have had opportunity to have people in my fridge of condition in emergency critical care and the cancer center and at all times the offer result was extremely positive—I would strongly recommend this hospital to anyone including my own children.
