02/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Preyra is the BEST ER doctor I've ever encountered and as a person with chronic health issues, I've encountered dozens of ER doctors over the years. After a recent visit, Dr. Preyra said he was going to write up an ER care plan for me so that my visits would no longer take hours and hours as there would be standing orders on file (and I would have a copy). Dr. Preyra is confident without being cocky, sensitive and sweet and most of all, he believes in his patients and their desire to get better! I wish he was a family doctor so I could have him in my corner all the time!  Respond

19/02/12 1 3 2 4 He is probably one of the worst doctors I've ever had. He was rude and not very comforting at all. I was not impressed with him at all.  Respond

04/01/11 5 5 5 5 I was in intense pain due to a flare of My Rheumatoid arthritis and he was the docotr I saw when I ended up at urgent care. As a chronic pain patient I am already on morphine on a low daily dose. He did not treat me as a drug seeking patient but he listened and helped me with my issues. He gave me an injection in my jaw to help ease some of the pain and prescribed some powerful meds to help me get over the flare. He was compassionate and very knowledgable and I was lucky he was on call that night. I was in such a state of anxiety because of the pain I was in he listened to me and made suggestions and took care of me. I left the Urgent care much better then when I arrived and I have him to thank for that. I only wish he was a practicing rheumatologist! He is truly one of the few good doctors out there who listened and didnt judge me beacuse I have pain. thanks so much Dr. Preyra!  Respond

02/12/08 5 5 5 5 My husband had a massive heart attack and was taken to Brampton Hospital, where he was seen by Dr. Preyra. Within a few minutes, he set up a angioplasty for him, and because of his low blood pressure and heart rhythm, actually got in the ambulance with him and took care of him while they went to Trillium hospital. He kept him alive until they could do the angiogram, and now he has finally returned home and is doing fine. The nurse told me before they left Brampton that my husband was in the best hands, and I believe it. Thanks and God bless.  Respond

10/11/08 1 4 1 5 I am not saying that Dr. Preya is not educated, he is on the contrary (very highly) however upon coming in to the urgent care with severe stomach pain being 28 weeks pregnant he told me it must be heart burn. I was treated with an antacid. I became frustrated and left knowing my discomfort was not heart burn. That was Sunday, Friday my son was delivered by emergency c-section. The diagnosis was incorrect and some simple blood work would have given him the answer. Some times doctors do not trust a patient to know when there is really something wrong.  Respond

24/05/08 5 5 5 5 If you're unfortunate enough to find ourself in the middle of a medical emergency, then pray that you are blessed to have Dr. Ian Preyra on duty when you're rushed to emergency.He is patient, responsible and highly knowledgeable. I trust my life in his hands. Dr. Preyra was patient and took the time to explain exactly what was going on with me. When he was not sure, he said so and called for more tests to confirm his diagnosis. Dr. Preyra treated me as if I was the only patient that day. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent is all I can say about the manner and efficiency with which I was treated.  Respond

07/04/08 3 3 5 5 Met him a couple times at Brampton Civic. First for my then 3 week old. He helped me with questions and took time to tell me about the prescription he wrote for her...very friendly ! Then saw him for me a couple months later in the ER, as was just as nice...wish he was my family doctor! (waited both times for a while, but it wasn't really his fault) well worth the wait i think!  Respond

22/07/07 5 5 5 5 I had occasion to meet with Dr. Preyra who was the doctor working the Emergency Department at Peel Memorial Hospital in Brampton on the 29th of April. I had fallen off a ladder and he immediately sent me for xrays and determined that I had broken my heel and put a plaster cast on my right leg. He was very friendly and knowledgable about this type of fracture and advised me of what I could expect over the next 3 months as I healed. I was pleased that he was on staff at PMH when I had my unfortunate accident.  Respond
