I wish he wouldn’t keep typing on his laptop during appointments. I find it off putting. He should be concentrating on me.
Waynesville, OH |
Terrible communication, no follow-up. Denies medication refill with no explanation. There are better options.
Waynesville |
He just doesn’t have a grasp of modern techniques and testing.
Waynesville |
Really unhappy with dr Opsahl so went to see their NP Kristen. Definitely recommend her!
Waynesville |
New to the area and read the negative reviews but thought I’d give Dr Opsahl a shot. Wished I’d not and looking for another doc.
Clearcreek, OH |
Dr Opsahl doesn't understand women's medical issues. I've expressed this before, but reading the previous review just confirms this. He really needs to go back to school to learn modern treatment techniques. Just offering his opinion without any testing is unacceptable.
waynesville |
Dr. Opsahl "diagnosed" me with post partum depression after I made a visit to see him because I was feeling absolutely terrible. After utilizing no screening tool for PPD nor doing any testing he told me that it would pass and "get out of the house more." My baby was five months old and I was ecstatic to have him, just felt miserable. Two weeks later another doctor diagnosed me with severe hypothyroidism and anemia, both through appropriate testing. His misdiagnosis are dangerous/irresponsible.

Opsahl should NEVER be suggesting surgery, but should defer to a specialist. I was nearly caught out by this.
springboro, oh |
He doesn't have the dedication that he once had.
Lytle |
I read the negative reviews on Opsahl with interest. Opsahl just treats the symptoms of my illness and doesn't try to find the cause. I guess I should get a second opinion. Isn't there any oversight of him?
Ridgeville |
Read the bad Opsahl reviews and totally agree and think he needs a refresher ASAP
Clearcreek |
I went to Waynesville Health Care last year for a blood test in their lab prior to a wellness exam the following week. The medical assistant was unable to insert the needle into a vein and after several attempts left the lab and did not return! Another medical assistant completed the blood draw, but left severe bruising on my arm that took a week to go away. I would suggest that Waynesville Health Care ensure that their caregivers are properly trained before being allowed to work with patients.

I would recommend Dr.Opsahl to everyone, he is such a very great Dr. And his staff is very very friendly and very helpful!!
in Waynesville OH |
My oral thrush was wrongly misdiagnosed as just me having a "dirty tongue". I was lectured on how to brush my tongue, and treated poorly. I developed complications from thrush, my eardrum ruptured, and finally got proper treatment from an EarNose&Throat specialist who told me that WaynesvilleHealthcare's CNP "should have known better".
