What People Say About Dr. Joseph Ojile, MD

Waited about 5 mins. Listen to my heart. Ask how long the wheezing had been going on. I told him it was about 6 months and my primary was treating me for asthma. He asked who my cardiologist I told him and he said I could not leave his office until he spoke to him. They talked and decided it was my HEART and not ASTHMA. My primary never once in 6 months spoke to my cardiologist. My primary said I did not need to see him or my lung that she could treat me for both. Quite obvious she could not. It did not take Dr. Ojile 6 months to figure it out. Keep in mind I asked my primary repeatedly for a referral and she said no. One of the main differences was that he cared if I lived or died she DID NOT. Listen to your gut, if you think you should see another Dr. insist on it. It is YOUR body.Dr. Ojile is a very good Dr. and knows what he is doing.

Dr. Ojile was very friendly and communicated well. He was extremely courteous, even BEFORE he found out his patient was a nurse! I don’t understand the bad reviews. He and his staff were all top notch!

In 2011, and again in 2012, I was on life support at St Anthonys Hospital. With the care of Dr Ojile and his associates, they successfully managed to get me off of lufe support and although I am disabled today, I’m thankful and grateful for their devotion to their patients. Thanking GOD for his guidance that enabled the good doctors to bring me back.

This practice has major time management issues. After four visits, I still was never seen by doctor or asst without 45-60 minute wait. Same for everyone else in waiting room. Only saw MD once, physician asst was adequate but after waiting that long beyond appt time, I was given the rush.

VERY RUDE OFFICE STAFF THE WORST. ALTHOUGH I HAVE WORKED MY ENTIRE LIFE AND PAID INTO THE SYSTEM AND I NOW PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID THE NURSES TOLD ME THAT THE DOCTOR REFUSED TO CALL ME INT THE STOP SMOKING PATCH B/C IT IS SOLD OVER THE COUNTER. HOWEVER, MY INSURANCE SAID THEY WOULD GLADLY PAY FOR IT IF I WANTED TO STOP SMOKING. AFTER PLEADING WITH HIS OFFICE FOR 2 WEEKS TO CONTACT WALGREEN'S THE RUDE UNCARING NURSE SAID IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN B/C HE'S NOT CALLING IT IN.

Dr. Ojile was fine, very personable but the lady who runs the test or setting you up for sleep apnea test at home was not very good, she gave me paperwork to fill out just like I had done when I came to see the doctor she needed to see my insurance card and id. We were talking about how medicare is primary and united health 2nd and how I am not allowed to use my medicare card anymore I told her everything she needed to know was on the one card. Problem with communication and I left upset.

He was 3 hours late to my apt. and not very nice. When he tried to bull rush my apt I informed him I paid for an apt and expected to be treated. he got mad and the appointment was over. I will say he sent my 15 dollars back to me in the mail. so at lest he did not rip me off. this guy is really weird.
