18/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. David is truly an amazing doctor - he is friendly, professional and was very easy to talk to with regardss my ear issues. His MOA, Lenal, is absolutely pleasure to deal with and will go out of her way to make appointments and get other information to me. I would highly recommend this office to anyone with ENT issues.

18/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. David's approach towards a medical condition is straight forward (the way it should be). If it was not for Dr. David it is very possible that a pre exisiting condition would not have been treated let alone further detected. He listens to information provided and does what is best for the patient. I have read some of the previous comments and I can honestly say that I have experienced some of the best direct, professional care by this specialist. His receptionist was also very helpful with providing information needed. I would highly recommend Dr. David to anyone who is in need of specialty care in an honest manner! Thank you Dr. David and office, your care is amicable!

16/05/12 5 5 1 3 There are many comments about long waits to see Dr. David, and inconvenient appointments arranged. Unfortunately this is pretty standard for any specialist. These comments shouldn't carry too much weight, but the doctor himself is dismissive, arrogant, a poor listener and implies my dizziness in psychological. I'm happy that some people are given good care, I'm just not one of them.  Respond

11/04/12 1 1 1 4 I waited more than 6 weks to hear from this offic after my doctor sent in a referral. My doctor's office called them after a month to make sure the referral was't lost and they still din't make an appointment fo rme for two more weeks. Their answering message mentions they are a busy office but this is no excuse- all doctors are busy. Their office staff are unpleasant and arrogant. I was appalled when I heard the tone of voice they used to speak to patients. They wre dismissive and unhelpful to veverhone in the office. If there was a place to file a complaint against them, I would.  Respond

15/11/11 5 5 5 5 My husband Michael and I thank you sincerely for discovering a diagnosis in the nick of time and performing prompt surgery (Endoscopic Chronic Sinusitis) on my husband. God enabled for you to save him from a critical situation. We have no words to thank you & compensate for it. May GOD bless you, your family, the nursing staff which attended on him at the time of the operation & your receptionist, a hundred fold, for the prompt attention, tests taken & the like. Michael is fully recovered now and we would like to express our deepest appreciation for your kindness and understanding during the examination,operation and the subsequent checkups. Thank you very much for your care, concern and expertise! Thank you for your skills in performing the operation. You are indeed the only one that helped us to overcome our challenges and with great encouragement. We are very thankful to have found you. We shall sincerely remember your good advise and great care. You are a great man!!  Respond

01/11/11 5 5 5 5 I don't usually write on these types of sites. but have to say that Dr. David is hands down one of the best Doctors i have ever had the fortune to be in the care of. He listened to my concerns and correctly diagnosed my illness. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an ear specialist.  Respond

25/10/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. David is a wonderful and caring man. He fully explained the medical procedures and was patient and kind. Ultimately we decided to hold off on the procedure and it was the right decision. If and when I do decide to go ahead, Dr. David will be the only one I trust. A truly kind person who cares more about your health that anything else.  Respond

05/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. David is a very skilled professional, he was able to diagnose my problem almost immediately... Other doctors kept on telling me I had Allergies, however Dr. David realized that I needed my adenoids and tonsils removed.. After that, I was able to finally breath again. Thank you Dr. David, you've given me my life back...  Respond

20/04/11 5 5 5 5 I came to see David about a nasal infection and he quickly diagnosed it as being a staph infection and prescribed me some meds. I was in and out quite quickly and and in less than two weeks the antibiotics eliminated the infection. It was probably the most efficient visit to a doctor's office I've ever had, and I look forward to using David again in the future.  Respond

30/03/11 5 5 5 5 From the bottom of my heart I owe my newly recovered health to Dr David. I was suffering terribly from severe migrane headaches and had a constant annoying ringing in my ears at all times. It affected my hearing and sleeping on a daily basis. Dr David was my last hope and he never failed me. After I was referred to him from my physician I called the office to set up an appointment and was very impressed with the exceptional customer service skills of the medical office assistant staff. When I went to the office they were very caring, respectful and kind at all times. Dr David was a soft spoken man and I complimented him on his wonderful office staff and he smiled. He quickly diagnosed that I had an inner ear infection and within weeks the headaches and ringing was gone. I can't thank him enough for all of his help. I don't know what I would have done without him. He really is a skilled expert who cares about his patient's well-being and it shows!  Respond

27/03/11 5 4 5 5 I saw Dr. David about an ear infection and he was very down-to-earth and informative about what I considered an embarrassing medical issue. I would recommend him to others as I felt comfortable talking to him and I left with no questions unanswered.  Respond

03/03/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. David is amazing. I went to him for a second opinion before elective surgery which was going to be costly and a major inconvenience. He corrected my issue through non-invasice methods which were covered and way better for me all around.  Respond

21/02/11 5 5 5 5 I had an ear infection and wish I had seen Dr. David earlier than I did. I saw my GP and an ENT Doc, both of whom shrugged it off and said it will clear up. It didn't. Right away, Dr. David resolved my initial pain by draining my eardrum and subscribing an antibiotic. He followed up thoroughly and was amazing. He was patient and explained my options all along the way. I can't imagine how anyone would be less than ecstatic to have Dr David as their Doctor. His care was perfect in every way. Above and beyond normal care. His staff was also excellent.  Respond

02/10/10 1 1 1 3 Dr. David is rude and inconsiderate. Even the GPs think he's arrogant and find it annoying their staff have to waste their time chasing his office down for many, many weeks to make appointments, even for a patient he sees every year (at HIS request). Once you actually get an appointment with God, he'll leave you sitting in an empty waiting room for over and hour while he chats and laughs with a friend in his office. He ha poor people skills and is very rushed and rough in his technique and he doesn't bother to follow-up and let you know the results of a test he felt was necessary to have.  Respond

31/08/10 5 5 5 5 I have seen him several times for multiple nodules on my thyroid. He is thorough, explains what he is doing while he felt my throat (which helped alleviate my anxiety at being poked), ordered various tests-explaining each, and which would be a bit uncomfortable. I thought he was pleasant, thorough, interested in being sure I understood both the thyroid problem and his procedure. He explained the results in follow up appointments. I believe he is very good and trustworthy, and has a kindly manner..  Respond

05/03/10 1 3 1 3 Dr. David's office insists that appoinments be made through your GP. My GP does not keep my calendar and made and appointment for three months later when I was on holidays. I phoned his office repatedly to change the appointment. They never called back.  Respond

23/10/09 4 2 1 4 Very rude and uncaring. He seemed rushed as he was an hour late. Dr David didn't take the time to explain what he was going to do. He put me at an upside down angle and spoke very roughly telling me what to do. I have a neck problem and get instant pain if my neck isn't properly supported. He then spent 2 minutes telling me I was cured and didn't even ask how I felt. He said,"do you understand?", like I was a complete moron! He then gave me a sheet of paper explaining what he did and I left feeling very annoyed. On one good note he did agree to see me the day after my gp called him. I did thank him for that. I have heard he is good with children so that is wonderful news. Scary to read about the person that had surgery and had to have it re-done by another Dr. If my problem doesn't go away on its own I will seek another ent as I wasn't impressed by Dr David!  Respond

I would not recommend him, and have talked to a number of individuals who think the same. I would recommend you find another ENT specialist.  Respond

31/03/09 4 4 5 5 Dr. David is a quiet, polite doctor who listens well and appears quite knowledgeable. I feel that the waiting period to see Dr. David was average for a specialist in the province of BC and his staff was professional and kind.  Respond

15/12/08 4 3 5 5 Dr. David really helped my son. He's got a simple problem, fluid in the ear, which as a 3 year old causes acute hearing loss. Dr. David has always been kind and we even shared a chuckle after my son's last surgery. He seems like a really nice man but with a LOT of responsibility. I always dream of a doctor with incredible bedside manner but especially from reading on here, I think our expectations are too high for this demanding job. Every time I see Dr. David I'm struck that I believe that while our problem is a very minor one compared with what he usually sees, he is empathetic about the impact it has on my son. I do believe he is excellent at his job, and I REALLY like that he's willing to squeeze my son in whenever we need: I think he enjoys helping the little ones! I really can't expect anything more!  Respond

12/12/08 1 1 1 1 Not able to give a rating per 'smiley face' as I never got to see Dr. David. Unfortunately after my North Shore GP referred me (and I phoned and left a message at Dr. David's office too), I was never contacted for an appointment and finally asked my doctor to refer me to someone else after 2 1/2 weeks of not hearing from Dr. David's office. It would have been really kosher to hear from his office one way or the other, so I can only comment on the very poor lack of communication skills of his appointment makers - it is, in my case, non-existant.  Respond

05/02/08 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. David to be very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. He really took the time to make a thorough assessment, listening to my concerns and answering my questions throughout. Dr. David took the time to explain my symptoms, and provided me with useful information. Both Dr. David and his staff were friendly and punctual. I was surprised to see the negative ratings for him on here - my experience from start to finish was exceptional; I would recommend Dr. David to anyone.  Respond

04/02/08 4 3 4 4 Dr. David left me with the impression that he is an ambitious doctor with little time for "run of the mill" problems. I understand that he is becoming a leader in the area of balance/dizziness problems. However, I have to agree emphatically with the other comments that I have read here regarding his manner. It was suprisingly brisk and seemingly uncaring. He may be a good or even excellent doctor/surgeon but he certainly struck me as acutely overconfident. That quality concerns me when found in any professional.  Respond

31/05/07 1 1 2 I was devastated by the uncaring manner this dr. displayed. I got the feeling he did not care about me or about my problems. I was so hopeful that he would help me, but he basically destroyed my spirit. I still cry when I think about how horrible he treated me during the appt. He was so rough with me mentally and physically. I think he is probably an intelligent man. I just hope and pray that he could become a caring physician.  Respond

04/05/07 5 2 1 He operated on me to remove a tumour in the perotid gland and missed the tumour and removed a big part of my cheek, leaving me scarred and disformed. I had to undergo the same operation 3 mths later- of course with a different doctor.  Respond
