02/10/13 5 5 5 5 If you read 1/20/12 4411, you will have a good idea of what ignorance is. Lidocaine IV is just one of several types of injections that the good Doctor has to offer. It is not for everyone but works great for most. The spinal xylocaine injections to my lower spine has made mine and others lives easier. Narrow mindedness cannot be cured by any doctor unfortunately though. So, Mr. 4411, we are all glad you're gone. Bye Bye. ROCK ON TEAM BOND!!!  Respond

13/08/13 5 5 5 5 Dr.Bond is very understanding, after a bad fall, I have a crushed area in my lower back, that no other doctor has been able to help. Dr.Bond is my third pain management doc, and the very best. He treated me like I was in a car accident, which allowed him to find many muscles and tissue that were in spasm from the injury. The other PMD's just wanted to treat cookie cutter area's, as if I had degenerative disese, instead of my unfortunate crushed muscles. I also crushed my L4-L5 vertibrae, which Dr.Bond was very surprised I was not in a wheel chair. I am dealing with severe swelling, and so is Dr.Bond. Great guy. I had to keep working while seeing the other docs, but now I am no longer seeing stars, and throwing up.

24/07/13 5 5 5 5 Yet another claim to help with pain, another appointment, more gas, more parking $$..I've had lower back pain my whole life, just thought it was something everyone had and that you have to suck it up and deal. GP thinks maybe I should see someone else....tried all the meds in his tickle trunk and all the do this and don't to thats....so in June we decided to make an apt to see Dr whats his name..finally got an apt to see whats his name after waiting like forever. I was very negative going in, not a great head space to try something new. Wishing I was anywhere but there...so --Dr. Bond////Awesome///Awesome even have a break from pain. Didn't think it was ever goning to happen without copious amounts of booze and pills. Not only did he help me, he lisitened to me and has a very down to earth way about him. He's a doll...too bad that he is a) married :( and b) jabs needles in me! lol  Respond

04/07/13 5 5 5 5 Simply a miracle worker. I have suffered for years with a shattered tail bone and osteoarthitis and have dunped every pill imaginable into my system only to be sedated enough to tolerate my condition. As you all know, pain killers are designed to stimulate you . There is no such pill that goes to the boday part that hurts and stops the pain. The answer is here with Dr. Bond. You will wonder why you have never tried this before and you will be amazed at how you feel instantly . My thanks and blessings to the entire staff. Pat, April and Dr Bond , you all rock to the top . Sincerely , Wayne Moulton  Respond

18/06/13 5 5 5 5 After years of horrible suffering and seeing a multitude of specialists, my husband was referred to Dr. Bond. Dr. Bond fully supported my husbands choice of not taking narcotics to control his pain. The IV Lidocaine treatments were explained in detail and was offered as a possible method to treat and reduce his chronic pain. After 6 months of refusing the treatment, the pain got so bad that he finally agreed to try it! After just three treatments, it was clear that he was a perfect candidate for this treatment! While it doesn't work for everyone, when it works, it really works I would encourage EVERYONE to give it a try. Side effects are minimal compared to any alternative meds. Today, my husband would miss/postpone a lot of appointments, social gatherings, etc. but one he will NOT miss - his weekly treatment. I thank God every day for Dr. Bond, April and Pat!!! You guys rock!!!  Respond

11/06/13 5 5 5 5 I have no idea what I would do or where I would be if I did not have Dr. Bond & his staff (Pat) in my life - there doesn't need to be a list of reasons why - just know that when you are living with chronic pain you need more than a doctor someone who is quite simply MORE than a doctor and that is the experience of having Dr. Bond care for you.  Respond

24/01/13 5 5 5 5 Incredible doctor. I felt he really understood my pain and how it effects my life. Very compassionate;) and personable. Would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing pain. I found him very knowledgable about fibromyalgia in my case. He did recommend lidocaine but was by no means pushy. He did not discuss painkillers although I have no interest in that route. Through word of mouth I have also heard he's an excellent doctor. Anyone wondering about wait times: he only takes 2 news patience a day and the rest are regulars so although you may be waiting months to see him once your in its very easy to get a appointment the following week.  Respond

03/01/13 5 5 5 5 He has literally given the support and compassion since day one, he nothing short of of a saint. I don't want to think where I would be without him. The world needs more dr Bonds, doctors that actually listen, discuss, inform, offer not only knowledge and expertise, but something very unique compassion. If you are lucky enough to have him as a doctor, be patient,and be thankful,design of this caliber are rare! Wayne  Respond

30/10/12 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Bond for the first time the other day. This man is very busy and I can certainly see why. Heis very very gentle and very interested in your pain. He was on time for the appointment and I noticed if he was a bit late it was only by a few minutes at the very most five and he always apologized to the patient. Although I have only seen him once so far he has helped and I look forward to beging treated by such a caring doctor. He is all about the patient which is a very rare thing these days  Respond

30/03/12 5 5 5 5 I had my first experience seeing Dr. Bond earlier this month. I admit, seeing a new Dr. and having to tell your whole life story over again, it was a bit overwhelming for me. I don't know why I felt like that because he was the kindest, most helpful Dr.(besides my own family Dr.)that I had seen in years of having chronic pain. He is very understanding and very caring. He treats you like a person and explains everything in a way that you understand. I highly recommend him. His receptionist is also very nice.  Respond

20/01/12 4 4 1 1 I saw Dr. Bond when my GP referred me to this 'pain management' specialist for severe chronic pain of Fibromyalgia. Dr. Bond was not interested in my medical history, seemed to know very little about Fibromyalgia and offers only one treatment. His entire practice is based on administering weekly IV Lidocaine. This treatment provides some people with temporary relief, but comes with many risks. I wish I had known before I wasted my time and precious energy. That is all he offers. Acupuncture will give the same result without the risk. I think people should know this before they seek treatment from him.  Respond

11/10/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bond is a man in he’s late 50’s, with many years experience. I started seeing him last fall after coming off years of narcotics, that’s another story! Needless to say I was a bet of a Wildman with true pain & without the drugs I was able to work with Dr. Bond to treat the areas. In the beginning the treatments where close together & I was doing things around the house, car work & things of personal interest. After a few mounts things were space out to much and I was slipping somewhat. Over the last month or so I was able to work with Dr. Bond to get my treatments back on track. This speaks volumes for Doctor Bond, allowing me to be part of my treatment was epic for me; he is a man who is not a fan of narcotics (So many doctors hand out narcotics as a solution or cure now a days. They should be an interim use while trying to come up with a more sustainable solution to one’s pain issue.) I still remain a patent of Dr, Bond as we work out what will become of me. I am grateful the he moved to Nova Scotia.  Respond
