"I would never recommend Dr. Lajoie to anyone. Very bad experience. Staff was amazing (they tried to make up and cover for her unprofessionalism). I was a patient of Dr. Lajoie for about 3 years. The only reason I saw her was because she was a part of the same practice as Dr. Mawad (an amazing surgeon). Each year, I am required to have a CT Scan with contrast. Because I have problems with my kidneys, I must also have IV fluids to prevent further kidney damage. Every year I would call Dr. Lajoie's office to schedule the CT Scan and attempt to order the IV Fluids. Without fail, every year I was subjected to some sort of drama over ordering the IV Fluids. The first year I tried to order the IV Fluids, I was bounced back and forth between my Nephrologist's office and Dr. Lajoie's office. Dr. Lajoie wanted my Nephrologist to order the IV Fluids. My Nephrologist was confused by Dr. Lajoie's request, especially since Dr. Lajoie was the one ordering the CT Scan (makes sense to me). ...
I went back to Dr. Lajoie, who again referred me to my Nephrologist. This went on several times until Dr. Lajoie finally gave in and ordered the IV Fluids. The following year, I found myself faced with the same situation. This time, however, instead of giving in and ordering the IV Fluids, Dr. Lajoie instructed her staff to schedule my CT Scan without Contrast. (A CT Scan without Contrast would not require IV Fluids.) My third year with Dr. Lajoie played out in a similar way. The difference being, instead of giving in, or simply scheduling a CT Scan without Contrast, Dr. Lajoie, without explanation, decided she no longer handled my type of case. To this day, I have absolutely no idea what the issue was with ordering IV Fluids. Initially, I tried to give Dr. Lajoie the benefit of doubt - telling myself that maybe it was beyond my understanding because I was in the legal field, rather than the medical field. But finding a new Vascular surgeon, quickly disabused me of that notion. With Dr. Lee, my new Vascular Surgeon, scheduling a CT Scan and ordering IV Fluids was effortless. His office scheduled the CT Scan and ordered the IV Fluids (all without me having to ask). The scheduler called me to go over the process and to tell me where to go on the day of the Scan. Wow, what a difference. Kudos Dr. Lee. This is the first time I have ever written a review. I did so this time because my experience with Dr. Lajoie was so bad. I was so confused as to why there was so much drama over ordering IV Fluids. To make matters worst, Dr. Lajoie did nothing to alleviate my confusion. Instead, she instructed her medical assistant to tell me that she no longer handled my type of case - which only served to confuse me more. (Isn't that what Vascular Surgeons do - monitor and manage veins and arteries?) (SMH) "
