Recently, I had to help a young patient with significant medical issues to find a family doctor in Calgary. Van Goor has helped this patient, and I don't think anyone else could have done a better job.He was thorough in his initial assessment, up to date in his knowledge of the relevant conditions, reassuring in his manner, and prescribed helpful treatments. I refuse to sit in emergency over a swollen foot or throat infection for twelve or more hours and waste the doctor's time when there are real emergency cases.
The Russian witch was soo disgusting she said find a new doctor! I was instructed by the hospital to have a follow up after my surgery with my GP but it seems they no longer answer phones to do so.
If you don't like the way I work very insulted and I will be showing doctor Vangoor all these comments so he's aware how people are feeling about these Russian witches making fun of you and laughing in a different language I have been going to Dr. As much as I hate to I will have to find another doctor who has staff that actually work not sit and chat in Russian while the phone is ringing off the wall.
Thankfully I was able to get into another doctor who made the referral for me right away, otherwise I would be suffering for months because of his staff. I asked about my recent test results, and he opened my file and started reading results from months ago.
I said, those are not my most recent tests - he had to go to the back to get them and even then he kept brushing off my concerns.
Shame on you I am currently a medical office assistant student and I was privileged to complete a few of my practicum hours at Dr. I am somewhat appalled at the low ratings and comments on this site as I witnessed something completely different during my tenure there. Vangoor is a knowledgeable, compassionate and personable Doctor.
He ensured that his patients received quality care and though this might mean dedicating more time than is slated I've never seen a single patient leave his examination room with a frown or a quizzical expression.I concentrated on the filing department while I was there and trust me when I say that it's A LOT and as you can imagine it requires diligence and focus.Absence of a receptionist from the front desk doesn't necessarily mean that she is idling in the back. He is one of the doctors from long ago who trusted their patients until proven otherwise and one who remembers the oath he took to place his patient's best interest first!He had good and efficient staff but in the last few years its been a downhill spiral with the receptionists his been hiring!!I am writing partially to provide a context to many of the other comments here. Van Goor on a professional basis for about thirty years, and have known him to be attentive to patients' special circumstances and needs, and to be a flexible and patient practitioner.You are doing a real disservice to your long-time patients by treating us this way, and it is incredibly frustrating because I shouldn't have to go find a new doctor who has no information on my health history when you could just do the decent thing and pass down your practice to someone who is available and who cares about their patient's health and well-being.
