Dr. Terry Fellows's Ratings
Last month I fell ill suddenly at the airport and was transported to the ER at Richmond Hospital. Dr Fellows examined me and oversaw my treatment for several hours, then was ready to release me when I seemed more stable. Unfortunately, there were no hotel rooms in Vancouver that Saturday afternoon--we checked on 83 hotels. Dr Fellows offered to put us up, my wife and I, at his home so I could remain under his care overnight, and we accepted. Later that evening he recognized that I was worse and was developing sepsis. He drove us back across the city to the ER and re-admitted me. That amazing and beyond-the-call of duty care meant that my sepsis did not progress tragically, as it so often does. Cultures were taken, antibiotics administered, and within 48 hours my symptoms began to abate. I was released the following Thursday, able to travel safely. Now, almost 4 weeks later I am still recovering my strength and very grateful that he quickly recognized a potentially fatal condition before it caused permanent damage. I will always be grateful for his calm manner and insightful experience.
My mom was rushed to emergency last week and was so very ill. It was a horrible admittance into the ER and she was ignored by nurses for the first 20 minutes, because someone was dying from a heart attack so the Doctor was busy. I just wanted someone to make her comfortable as I was holding her in my arms and she was vomiting, fainting, shaking and sweating. Finally, after I threw a temper tantrum, nurses came and got her (they saw a woman first, who was complaining of neck pain from a car accident a week prior, which is why I was so annoyed). She was put in a bed and waited for the Doctor (which was better than my holding her in my arms) As upset as I was at the staff at the time, it all went away once we met Dr. Terry Fellows. He asked her detailed questions, was patient, had a kind bed side manner...in fact I told him that he didn't seem "doctor like" at all because of how sweet he was. He was extremely thorough and checked on her several times. He got a diagnosis right away and she was put upstairs in a semi-private room as she was going to have to have surgery. If I was injured and sick, and scared as patients often are, it would be a blessing to have Dr. Fellows as the light at the end of the tunnel. Sure enough, I found out he is from Nova Scotia (I could tell by how he spoke), which also explained a lot because was also cool as heck As frantic as the ER was, he stayed calm and focused on my mom. He is amazing.

I was very impressed with Dr. Fellows during my visit to the ER at Richmond General, for an irregular heart beat. He did several tests and a chest x-ray. He has an excellent bedside manner. I was monitored for hours and fed lunch as well!! He Was very kind, patient and had a sense of humour. My nurse Al was wonderful too. They both took very good care of me and I appreciate it very much.
I went to the hospital last night for my eye issue and Dr. Fellows was my doctor. He was really patient and showed concern about my eyes. He even asked me to do a follow up with him if my eye doesn't get better on Sunday. He is a GREAT doctor!
Dr Terry Fellows I have known for about 15 years. Unfortunately for me, I visit the ER often with sundry complaints that are often confusing to me and to some health professionals. It depresses yet amazes me the variety of clinical diagnoses I have received. I present a complicated picture I admit. Dr. Fellows has been nothing but patient and compassionate in his dealings with me even though I often miss obvious factors regarding my symptoms. He politely points them out without showing any frustration. He knows that 2 frustrated people are not going to have a good result. He is one of my favorite doctors in Richmond and I wish he had a private practice (so I can frustrate him there too....just kidding) because he's just tops in my books. ---A side note NOT about this doctor: Be careful using Benzodiazepines. Had I not been prescribed them for 10 years (innapropriately)I wouldn't have racked up a hundred or more ER visits over the last 10 years.
This guy IMO had no right to do what he did to me in the ER! He administered a shot to me of something that was NOT required for my emergency visit! I spent six hours in severe pain and hell because of him. I even had to go to therapy to release the trauma he put me through. My own GP was outraged by what he did. I won't get into details, but don't EVER let a doctor give you a shot before you know exactly what it is! To this day I start to tear up thinking about that night! I hope he knows how wrong it was to do what he did, but I doubt it.
