Wish I had read these before appt.

I just had an annual physical with Dr. Oler. I have seen many Docs and CRNPs at PennMed and all seem qualified and compassionate. Dr. Oler is not at all compassionate and I'm not sure about the qualified part either. She did not read my history, asked only cursory questions and made me feel like I was imposing on her time, even though I had waited for six months for the appointment. And I don't agree with the two commenters that "bedside manner" doesn't matter. It does. If you can't connect with your patients then you are not going to get the whole picture. I agree that she is a doc who feels patients need to take control of their own healthcare, and that's fine. But she was dismissive when I asked her questions and did not probe any further. There were a couple of hints of caring, but the overall experience left me cold. I think she should have opted for research instead of clinical. I will do my level best not to schedule another appointment with her.

Missing my VA doctors

Dr. Oler is everything these reviews say. I had the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. I thought about walking out of the office but they had already taken my $$ (they are smart to collect upfront) and it took me 6 months to get an appointment. On the positive side, you are in and out fast. How many patients have conditions that escalate because of her indifference? She doesn't have a new patient form of any kind so my history obviously matters not to her. Please don't make the mistake I made, make an appointment with someone else.

Interesting

I have been a patient of Dr. Oler for about four years. I must admit my first visit with her I felt like she really wasn't at all interested in me as a patient. While explaining my family cancer history she cut me off and seemed to rush through the rest of my appointment. I left feeling odd. I've gone back to her several times since, and now I'm getting to know her style better. She's simply just very down to business. She's a great doctor. She has been very thorough with me and has always stayed on top of my concerns. She may not be the old fashioned style doctor that we may want and need sometimes (it's nice to feel comforted at the doc), but she is good and I do recommend her.

December reviews made me feel better!

I chuckled when I saw the review from the patient who said Dr. Oler called her a complainer! You are NOT ALONE! Some time ago I suffered for a month with intense sore throat and went for a strep test. She said, "We all get sore throats, I've had mine for 2 months!" So I said, "But I feel like I am swallowing glass!' And she rolled her eyes and reluctantly ordered the strep test. It was positive! Another time I told her I went to the community pool (small talk) and she just made a yuck face and said, "I put a pool in my own backyard. The pool is gross."
