Call for Recognition for Dr. Margaret Ochonska sign now

December 9, 2009

To: The College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba

This petition is to initiate positive recognition for Dr. Margaret Ochonska (Medical Clinic, 218-B Regent Avenue West), a female physician practicing in the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba in the suburb of Transcona.

I understand one Mr. Jeff Leskiw has initiated a petition against Dr. Ochonska http://www.PetitionOnline.com/Ochonska/ . I would like to bring to your attention that to date, more individuals have come forward to support Dr. Ochonska on this petition and to disagree with Mr. Leskiws opinion. This is rare for a petition, but than again, Dr. Ochonska is a rare doctor. The basis for Mr. Leskiw complaint is website designed to be a resource for people who want to find a good doctor ~ not a website to make formal complaints or grievances (incorrectly stated by Mr. Leskiw). Mr. Leskiw did not point out that over 50 of the 90 respondents (60\%) of this very website rated Dr. Ochonska as a good quality doctor. Another 19 (21\%) indicated she provides average care leaving only 16 (18\%) unsatisfied with issues such as wait times. Given the current pressures of our medical system and high patient to doctor ratio; this is to be expected. I would also like to point out that of the 2225 Manitoba doctors rated on this website, Dr. Ochonska received the second highest number of ratings (90 in total); probably because she is considered to be an effective and well liked doctor.

Mr. Leskiw makes reference to values that commonly apply to medical ethics discussions as well as The Hippocratic Oath. However, Mr. Leskiw fails to demonstrate how Dr. Ochonska has violated these principles. Mr. Leskiw was obviously unhappy with the service he received but frankly, I find his approach to be inappropriate, disrespectful and borderline childish. There are other approaches Mr. Leskiw could have taken to address his concerns and in the end if he still wasnt satisified, he could have searched for another service provider and taken his file elswhere. I must warn Mr. Leskiw in advance: While it is unlikely that you will find another doctor as compenent as Dr. Ochonska, it is likely that you will still have to wait a while to see them.
