20/11/13 5 5 5 5 I've had several GI doctors over the years, having Crohn's disease. I'm so grateful that I found Dr. Saloojee. He is patient, kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and skilled (made me not hate having a colonoscopy!). To add to the positive experience, it's always a pleasure dealing with his assistant Nathalie. It's rare to have such a pleasant and efficient person as the first contact. They are a great team.

You are one in a million Dr. Saloojee! Nathalie, you are the perfect match for him! Always a complete pleasure to talk to. I consider myself to have won the lottery by having this kind, patient, knowledgeable man as my doctor.

12/04/13 4 4 5 5 I saw Dr. Saloojee for 3 years while I was having GI issues and my experience was incredibly positive. He is extremely patient and always takes the time to answer all of my questions. He seems extremely knowledgeable and is very thorough with his care. He even called me at home out of the blue to let me know that I was a good candidate for a procedure that was recently offered in Toronto by another doctor. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Saloojee, he is the best!  Respond

10/04/13 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr Saloojee for over 10 years now and I must say that I am very impressed with the care and attention I receive. I have a condition known as Barrett's esophacus and because it is a cancer causing condition, I must have an endoscpy every second year to monitor the progress. He is extremely gentle, calm and does not hesitate to provide all the necessary information when asked. I also have colonoscopy exams every 5 years and for having had an emergency one done by another doctor, I can safely say he is the best. He knows exactly how much sedation to give and makes the whole experience as painless as possible not to say pain FREE. Thank you very much. :)

22/02/13 5 5 5 5 My husband was diagnosed with ulcerated colitis 1year ago and was treated locally until he became very ill and was transferred to Ottawa. Dr. Saloojee took on his case. Our experience with Dr. Saloojee has been 100% positive. He is patient and understanding and always takes the time to answer all of our questions, and we have many. He is very thorough with his care and watches for any changes in condition and is thorough in referring to other specialists when needed. His knowledge is unbelievable and more important is his ability to explain in laymans terms to his patients. Dr. Saloojee has a very calming demeanour and appears to be a humble man. We credit the improvement in my husband's health to the incredible care he has received from Dr. Saloojee. We need more doctors like him.  Respond

16/10/12 5 4 5 5 He's the man for tummy and upper GI issues in Ottawa. I could of seen another tummy doc earlier but I waited to see what many doctors in eastern Ontario consider to be the best in the business. Great staff and took the minutes to explain the issues that he diagnosed....Ottawa is very, very lucky to have such a compassionate specialist.  Respond

28/09/12 4 2 5 5 While he is chronically late, his knowledge, professionalism, kindness, good humour and willingness to explain anything that may be unclear or troubling a patient more than make up for it. I've been his patient since 2003 and haven't once regretted it. He respected my wishes to avoid surgery for Crohn's if at all possible and investigated other treatment options leading to me remission for the last 6 years (knock on wood). An excellent Doctor.  Respond

30/09/11 5 3 5 5 Dr. Saloojee works miracles. He is the only doctor out of so many that could help me with some recent tummy trouble. He knew exactly what was going on, offered helpfuly suggestions and he really listened to me. He performed a colonoscopy which was a walk in the park and he made me feel so comfortable. He is usually a bit late for appointments, but this is because he takes the time to listen and really discuss solutions with his patients. I'm so thankful that I was refered to him from the emergency room. He has a passion for helping people that makes you believe in the healthcare system.  Respond

27/07/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Saloojee is nothing less than an angel. He is patient and caring and always takes the time to listen without rushing to the next appointment. This may mean sometimes having to wait for your appointment but I personally applaud that rather than being rushed through like a business, as in many offices. I have Crohn's disease and have experienced some medical nightmares until I found him. I was petrified of having another colonoscopy because the one I had in the past was so painful. He assured me that I would be okay and he is so genuine you believe him. I have since had many colonoscopies and never experience any pain. He has changed my life and I have nothing but the upmost respect for him. I am so thankful that I have him as a doctor. Thank you Dr. Saloojee.  Respond

06/06/11 5 4 5 5 When my previous gastroenterologist moved, I specifically requested Dr. Saloojee. He is knowledgeable, helpful and compassionate. He always takes the time to discuss potential pros and cons of treatment, different medications and potential long-term effects. And his staff (Nat in particular) is the best!  Respond

22/07/10 1 2 5 5 Nav is one of the very few Dr's that have tried everything in his powers to try and find some answers for my current chronic disease. Nav has great bedside manner and also shows compasion when explaining procedures. Would recomend him too everyone. However his receptionist could use some lessons on how to talk to people instead of talking down to them EVERY time  Respond
