Dr. Fred Kozak's Ratings
We are so grateful to Dr. Kozak for performing two cochlear implant surgeries for our son, who was a micro-preemie. Dr. Kozak is an amazing surgeon. Considering his busy schedule, he took the time and effort to go through our questions and concerns with surgery. He is very caring and visited us in the hospital room to ensure that our son was doing ok. He removed the dressing and was thorough in the care instructions. As another reviewer posted, Dr. Kozak is our hero. What a brilliant man! I don’t find him arrogant at all, quite personable and funny and direct. There are long wait times, but I would wait any time frame than trade for another surgeon in this area, because he must be in the top 3 surgeons in Canada. In addition, if an emergency comes up, that should take priority. His staff is very friendly and helpful as well. Thank you Dr. Fred Kozak for everything!

Our daughter was a patient of Dr. Kozak's. At our last visit with him, he did not greet us. During the examination, rather than talking to us, he went on and on with the nurse about life outside of the hospital. My husband and I kept looking at one another and shaking our heads. When the exam was over, he finally went over what he wanted done. When we began asking questions, he was very condescending and rude. He is arrogant and does not like to be questioned at all.

Very knowledgable and great staff but very rude in a humorous way. Takes things seriously in his own way but doesn't always give the best option or comments about procedures which are needed.

My daughter has been under the care of Dr. Kozak since she was a baby and her genetic hearing loss was diagnosed. We are extremely happy with his care. as well as, that of his staff. One day we brought our daughter into the Emergency at Burnaby General Hospital where she was treated (incorrectly) and released. A few days later when it was evident that the treatment was not working, we took her to the emergency at BC Children's where Dr. Kozak came in on his day off to attend to her. We feel extremely blessed to have Dr. Kozak as our daughter's ENT specialist and trust his judgement without question.

Dr. Kozak is a wonderful doctor and surgeon who is supported by a great team of people. He shares his knowledge with the medical world at large and is earnestly training other doctors to continue the work in other places around the globe. Our son will be having his third surgery for congenital cholesteatoma on April 4, 2012 and we feel completely at ease with our son in Dr. Kozak's care. He is on the cutting edge of research in this field and is absolutely wonderful at what he does. I cannot imagine the pressure that he could experience, having so many people who need his life saving knowledge and skill, but he handles that load with ease, a positive attitude and wit. We pray for Dr. Kozak each day; he needs the special blessings of health and mental stamina to continue this vital work. We are so thankful for him. If you find yourself or someone you love needing his help, relax and be thankful. You are in very capable and kind hands.

My son, who suffered bilateral cholesteatomas, was a patient of Dr. Kozak's for 11 years. Dr. Kozak performed over 13 surgeries and one reconstruction to try to preserve my son's hearing. I could not be more grateful for all the efforts Dr. Kozak put into trying save what hearing my son had, and to ensure that the cholesteatomas did not progress more than what they did. Fred Kozak is a talented surgeon who takes the time to explain what is happening and what actions are required. I am very greatful that we were referred to him.

Staff are the rudest people I have ever spoke with at a doctors office. No respect Or compassion what so ever. Longest wait to get into see Dr.Kozak. My 2 year old daughter is on a 1 year wait to see him. We have just been informed that she is congenitally deaf and he didn't bother trying to contact us to give us the test results. I had to track them down myself after them having the results for 3 weeks. Only to be told by an amazing ENT in Edmonton devastating news. Will never waste my time with this doctor OR his staff EVER AGAIN!!!
