I have had Dr. Corkum for over 15 years, and he has been nothing but a gentleman. Yes he does things differently, but I have had some bad women Dr's over the years and none of them have made me feel as comfortable as Dr. C when performing this exam. He talks, jokes, carries on and before you know it , its over. He has been nothing but kind and respectful, I prefer this to having to be rushed in and out, and no one caring about your privacy or medical concerns. I noticed a comment about pulling on the wrists to get you down to the correct position at the end of the bed, thank God,,,, nothing more awkward than trying to shimmy down or up out of the position. I can't believe women would equate a full exam (rectal and all) to some kind of perversion. I have had medical issues found out resulting from his exams, and without his thoroughness, they would never have been dealt with. We seem to have a shortage of gynecologists, the one I had before him, I had to wait hours past my appointment time to be seen, it was awful service, so I thank God for a Dr. like Mr. Corkum, who does not over schedule appointments and treats you with dignity and respect.

I have been going to Dr Thomas Corkum for 14 years and I have to say he is one of the best Doctor's in Halifax. He is extremely knowledgable and informative whenever any concerns are brought forward to him. I thank you Dr Corkum for being who you are!!!!

I was 15 when I saw him and never went back, made me feel disgusting. Insisted I needed a rectal exam & that if I didnt do it now in the office Id have to go all the way to the er and get scans done on my ovaries which I find completely bogus...And after reading all of these reviews saying they had surprise rectal exams or left feeling violated or were insulted I think he should have his medical liscence revoked or at least put into review! This isnt just women he's violating its adolescent young women coming into their womanhood. No ither gyn ive been to as a teenager or adult have made me feel uncomfortable with a bunch of innapropriate touching and comments. Whatever hes doing isnt part of his job and has more to do with some strange perversion. I cant believe people like this are allowed to continue their practices.

Dr> Corkcum is one of the best that I have ever been associated with. As a female I feel quite a bit of apprehension when is related to gynological issues. He make me feel very comfortable and go about the procedures with ease. It will be a sad day for women in Nova Scotia when he retires.

I don't know what to say about Dr Corkhum. He is a little different for sure-having my bra fastened back on is NOT necessary, since I have been doing it myself for that many years- but he is knowledgeable and very informed. He is very dry and blunt and getting a rectal exam without a warning almost got him kicked in the face! I think he has seen it all and I felt like another warm body to examine as he's got his routine down to a T...Would I go again? No! Would I recommend him? yes, if you are 65 and up. He knows his stuff but everything else creeped me out enough to never set foot again in his clinic...He does have a sense of humour however, telling me that his office smelled like a fish market... !!!!

Saw Dr. Corkum through a referral from Dr. Gilmour. He was very professional and all the comments about how he watches as you exit from the bathroom I don't understand. The office is very well laid out for privacy. He made me feel at ease. I initially went to see him for an exam but ended up getting a cervical biopsy which he didn't warm me he was going to do which could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on wether you like to know every detail about what's going on. I appreciated that he didn't warm me because it turned out to be a very painful procedure. Dr. Corkum made me feel at ease and would recommend him based on my experience. Those who are complaining about how he comments on your weight, I assume he's only doing that for your benefit. It's common knowledge that weight impacts fertility so don't be upset.

I have been a patient of Dr. Corkum's for the past 6 years. I am comfortable being in his care. He has always eased my mind, has never been inappropriate verbally or physically and has always provided a professional attitude to me. I will be very sad when he retires because then I have to go through training a new gynecologist. If it weren't for Dr. Corkum I wouldn't have been treated for the original issue that sent me to him and I am thankful that. He was and is always there for me. My GP retired without notice and I had a very hard time finding another GP. Something occured that worried me and I called the office and Dr. Corkum saw me immediately. I am very happy to be a patient of Dr. Corkum and will continue until he no longer practices.
