Review of Dr. Ogren

-Minneapolis, MN |

A very relational doctor that is thorough and straightforward with my cancer diagnosis. She performed two excision surgeries on me and I felt fully confident that I was in good hands...which made me feel relaxed because I trusted her. I felt her care and concern for me as a person (and stranger to her, really) was genuine.

Review of Dr. McGreevy

- in St Paul, MN |

I had my gallbladder removed recently and when I began to experience immense pain on a Sat (9 on pain scale) I called and left a message for the on-call surgeon who was Dr McGreevy. After 3 hrs of not hearing back I called again. The answering service called him and kept him on the line in order for him to actually speak to me. He could care less about me and said he had no access to prescriptions. Maybe others have had better care from him when it was on his terms - despicable conduct!

Review of Dr. McGreevy

- in St Paul, MN |

Dr. McGreevy is highly communicative. My mother in law had surgery today and he spent plenty of time with our family explaining the procedure. She is 96 years old and liked him as well when she met him. He seems highly competent and professional. We were extremely pleased.

Review of Dr. Ogren

-St Paul, MN |

When I was in the hospital and did not feel like I was ready to go home, felt she was more worried about the statistic for robotic surgery then me as a patient. I was not her patient, she must have been the Dr. on for the weekend. She was very abrupt. I would not recommend her to my family or friends. Her bedside manner was awful......................

Review of Dr. Wahlstrom

-St Paul, MN |

I really felt like Dr. Wahlstrom listened to me and spent the time with me to make sure I understood his recommendations for surgery. His team was also available for questions at any time and returned my phone calls in a very timely fashion. He gave a great recommendation on which direction to go with surgery based on my children's age and recovery time. I felt like I was in good hands and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable general surgeon.

Review of Dr. McGreevy

-St Paul, MN |

I don't even know where to begin. He performed surgery on my mom and the entire experience was bad for my mom as well as my entire family. He has a pretty big ego and as a result has a terrible bedside manner, I don't feel like he has any empathy at all towards his patients either. He also made personal remarks towards my family that were offensive, judgmental and very unprofessional. I do not trust his judgment or feel that my mom is in good hands.

Review of Dr. Rupp

- in Philadelphia, PA |

I was dying and Dr. Rupp saved my life. I was recently reminiscing about his life saving surgery. It was about 13 years ago and I was dying from an infection called sepsis. We first met in the emergency room when he leaned over me and carefully but truthfully explained that I would be dead in 24 hours if nothing was done. I was under great pain. He said something to the effect that it was my lucky day. He would save my life. I am very thankful to him.

Review of Dr. Wilton

- in Vadnais Heights, MN |

I honestly don't even know where to begin. This man is the man I received the call from telling me that I had cancer. He could not have been more professional and kind. He performed my surgery (thryiodectamy) and I had my follow up with him. I cannot say enough positive things. Highly recommend him to anyone on the east side of town who needs surgery. Wonderful man who makes you feel like you are in good hands who also cares about your well being.

Review of Dr. McGreevy

- in Maplewood, MN |

I had appointment with him to discuss upcoming surgery. He didn't explain anything about the surgery itself, such as how long it would take, what's involved, recovery, etc. After waiting over 45 minutes to see him, he was in and out in about 10 minutes. I would not recommend this dr. I felt as if he glossed over my situation and had more important things to tend to.
