20/04/13 5 5 5 5 I had breast implants done by Dr. Lobay just over 2 months ago. I could not be happier with my results! I started as a 34a and I am now a very happy 34c! My experience with Dr.Lobay was fantastic from the first consultation to leaving the surgical clinic after my operation. This was my first surgery and at the age of only 24 I was very nervous, but his staff the morning of my surgery made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Lobay was ready and waiting for me when I arrived and from the time I walked in the front doors to laying on the operating table was so fast (not is a rushed kind of way) that I didn't even have time to be nervous. When I woke up the nurses were right there and did what ever they could to make me as comfortable as possible. My recovery was almost pain free, i had no bruising, very little swelling, and my incisions are barley noticeable. My entire surgical experience could not have gone any better!! I highly recommend Dr. lobay to anyone who is considering breast implants.  Respond

27/06/11 5 5 1 1 My wife had a tummy tuck and she had breast implants. The tummy scar is way to high and crooked and her breast implants is the worst boob job I have ever seen. Her breast were 100 times nicer before she had them done. I would not recommend Dr. Lobay for anyone.  Respond

01/08/10 4 5 4 5 Dr. Lobay did my breast augmentation in June 2010. I had silicone gel implants (340cc & 370cc)inserted partially under the muscle. I have to say, he did a fantastic job. He was able to make my breasts symmetrical again. The incision is perfectly placed under my breast fold/crease. I would rate my breast implants a 9/10. Not a 10/10 because I was hoping that they would be a bit bigger. I found the recovery room nurses to be nice, however they did not adequately control my pain and sent me home with 8/10 pain that increasingly got worse when I got home. Warning to all ladies out there, this procedure is EXTREMELY painful!!! I would recommend Dr. Lobay for breast augmentation!

23/07/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lobay was amazing, he was the surgeon on call at the stollery in 2005. My daughter was in a serious sledding accident and needed hundreds of stitches to put her face back together. He did such a good job that people don't even notice the scars. My daughter was 3 at the time and Dr. Lobay was very caring and gentle with her follow up visits. I was so amazed at how wonderful of a job he did and how great he was with both myself (8 months pregnant at the time and very emotional) and my little one. I just want to thank you so much for the excellent job you did. Also all the stollery staff were as amazing how they were so professional and caring for my family during this scary time. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lobay to everyone and I'm very thankful that you were working that day.  Respond

22/07/10 5 5 5 5 I have known Dr. Lobay since he was a resident and I was a child (I burnt my arm when I was 6). The surgery on my arm was not able to be completed until I was an adult (after I finished growing), but I had 2 surgeries on this arm since then (more than 20 years ago) and it looks fantastic. I had gone to see him because I had heard of a new technique at the time and while he wouldn't do that particular surgery, he took the time to explain why and offered an alternative that served the same purpose. I have just been booked for a BA and it's nice to see that he still takes the time to explain everything and answer all questions. I can't wait.  Respond

14/06/10 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Lobay for a breast reduction and he found a lump which I had not detected nor did my previous tests. Dr. Lobay did my reduction and removed the lump which turned out to be cancer in the early stages... he saved my life. He was nothing but supportive throughout our conversation. His staff (nurse) goes over and above the call of duty. I did call alot for my results and she was always more than willing to check for me. Thanks Dr. Lobay  Respond

25/04/10 3 5 3 4 He did my breast implants. My breasts were not the same size before surgery and is most of the reason that I had them done. He put the same size implant into each breast, therefore, after surgery, my breasts are still noticably not the same size. He totally missed the mark or forgot why I was getting the surgery done. In addition, the staff was informed of my wishes as well, somehow, it still got missed. He wouldnt fit.  Respond

21/03/10 5 5 4 5 I had a breast reduction in Jan/'10. Although it was difficult to get into him, all told from consultation to surgery, the wait was 9 months (I was on the cancellation list which sped things up a lot). Dr. Lobay was very pleasant and knowledgeable and made me feel at ease, answering all my questions. The surgery went very well, absolutely no complications and the scars, even 3 months after the surgery, are almost non-existent. I am so thankful, and appreciative of the excellent care I received. Thank you Dr. Lobay!  Respond

05/10/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Lobay did a breast reduction for me five months ago. This was my fisrt surgery, as i am fairly young and i was kind of nervous/concerned and he was very helpful at the consult to inform me of all i needed to know beofore and following my surgery. His staff were extremely helpfull as well, his nurses were very helpful and pleasant. I only had one consult with dr Lobay and that was all i needed. I am so happy with my results, they turned out beautiful. Also may i note that i went through ab healthcare to cover my BR surgery, due to experiencing back pain etc. And even though the waiting list is a very long period, i got in to see dr Lobay within thee months of being on a cancellation list. His office was great! Thankyou Dr Lobay!  Respond

04/10/09 5 3 4 5 He did surgery on a growth on my dad's ear. Dad is terrified of needles and medical procedures in general, but Dr. Lobay calmed his fears and was able to do the procedure with Dad awake and calm. It's been well over 10 years and Dad still raves about him. However, when he examined my friends' six year old son, he just walked into the room, didn't greet J, just grabbed his head and turned it so he could see without telling him what J was going to do. The repair turned out beautifully, but his bedside manner that time was a bit lacking.  Respond

08/07/09 5 5 5 5 I had 2 surgeries done by Dr. Gary Lobay. I have nothing but good things to say about him, his bedside manner, compassion, undestanding, experience, knowledge and personality. He trets his staff well and with respect. In my opinion, he is a very humble, easy-going and respectful person and doctor/surgeon. Dr. Lobay, I thank you very much, and I wish there are more like you in the health care system. I really respect and take my hat off to you. Pleae keep doing what you are doing, for as long as you can.  Respond

08/09/08 5 4 4 4 Dr. Lobay did a breast reduction for me 3 years ago, and did a wonderful job. The scarring is so faint that it is difficult to tell any surgery was done! He has a wonderful bedside manner, is very respectful and answered all of my questions. He also was very cooperative about letting me recovery on my own time frame. If I ever needed surgery again I would definitely go back to him.  Respond
