13/08/13 4 4 3 3 I've been seeing her for over a year now. She is available and a good listener, very caring. She does the least to the most approach which is good...but a few times it has delayed my care in getting scans and referrals when I had really needed them. I'm hoping that improves as she is caring.

19/07/13 5 3 1 1 I was not at all impressed with this doctor. In my personal opinion, she was unpleasant to deal with and not at all knowledgeable on matters outside of the general medical system. The clinic is called "Lions Gate Integral" suggesting that it is somehow integrated with other modalities, such as complementary health (or maybe this is just my interpretation). In any event, after paying the monthly fee, I was very disappointed to read a newsletter from this office that had a muffin recipe with three highly inflammatory ingredients. Since inflammation is the root of most diseases, I was left shaking my head. Maybe good as a basic GP. I just want to add that I found the ladies at the front desk to be the best I have encountered in any doctor's office. They were truly helpful.  Respond

26/04/13 4 4 5 4 Dr McCall takes the time to engage with my issues, listens to my concerns and is pro-active in helping me think through options or treatments. She is very friendly, open and approachable, unlike other doctors who simply want to get you "in and out of the office" quickly. I really appreciate her holistic approach to my diabetes care -- she doesn't just treat me as a "number to fix" (based on my lab tests), but understands that it takes a bigger picture to manage a chronic disease (and patient in hearing me out). She is committed to helping me with taking care of my health in a personable way, and motivates me to be diligent in my own healthcare. She shows understanding, empathy and offers encouragement in the right direction. I feel safe to be looked after by a caring, invested doctor like Dr McCall, and highly recommend her.

20/03/13 5 4 5 5 I Love Dr. McCall, she is the first Dr. that I have had that shows so much compassion and is willing to take the time to explain things to you... She is the best Dr. I've ever had and I feel so looked after by her... she says it like it is but also makes you feel that you are the centre of the moment . I'm so thankful that I changed over to her. I have cancer and she is so optomistic in her comments to me. I feel very blessed to have found her. I especially like it when she says " I'm here for you ".  Respond

14/02/13 5 5 5 4 Dr. McCall has been my and my son's doctor for a few months now. She is very approachable and honest. Her staff is so nice - her receptionist even volunteered to watch my son while I had my appointment! My son loves it there because they have fun toys. I did pay a fee for my visit (my son is free) but I was actually reimbursed by the clinic after they found out that MSP would cover the appointment as it was considered prenatal. I appreciate the reason for the annual fee and am happy to pay it. It makes me feel more secure knowing that if anything goes wrong, she will catch it early. She immediately referred me to an OB as she does not do prenatal care (which worked out well for me as I would have had to see an OB regardless). I highly recommend this doctor! You will like her.  Respond

30/01/13 5 5 5 5 An absolutely fantastic doctor! She is caring, knowledgable, helpful and really looks out for your best interest. She takes her time getting to know you and your health history. She is very thorough and I can say I have never had such a wonderful doctor before.  Respond

25/01/13 5 5 5 5 The small fee for uninsured services is well worth it for a doctor that actually cares. The fee is needed because she is not willing to neglect things like an annual physical that are now longer covered by the public system. She is a great doctor and her staff is first rate.  Respond

14/08/12 4 4 5 5 Aside from a few administrative hiccups in the first few appointment times, Dr.McCall's staff are fantastic and professional. Dr. McCall is gentle, listens, and it not quick to judge...she looks at the whole person, not just the symptom...she is caring and very approachable.  Respond

22/05/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. McCall and her staff are great! I don't mind paying the annual fee for the service I receive when visiting her office. The staff are professional and courteous - definite bonus! They have been great at fitting me in for same day appointments. Dr. McCall has been great with my kids as well! They don't like going to the doctors but she manages to put them at ease. Highly recommend this dr.  Respond

30/03/12 5 4 5 5 I have never had a doctor who sits down and listens to everything you have to say and involves you in your own health decisions. Her theory of getting to know you when you are well, so that she may look after you better when you are ill, is refreshing. The North Shore needs more physicians with this type of dedication. Yes, there is an annual fee, but in my opiniun it is well worth it to have a doctor who cares! Polite, friendly, and courteous office staff(this is important too)!!  Respond

26/11/11 5 5 5 5 I love Dr. McCall, she is very dedicated to her profession and her patients. She listens and she truly cares. With my last Dr. I felt pushed out the door and all he wanted to do was push meds. I will gladly pay a small annual fee quality care, advice and time.  Respond

22/11/11 5 4 5 5 I have been searching for a long time for a Doctor in North Vancouver. The Staff are so great and kind, the office is clean and organized and welcoming. Dr.McCall was so warm and attentive. The office asks for an Annual Fee and I made an arrangement to pay it, because good health care and attention is worth it. This office brings me back to the way doctor's offices USED to be before the Walk in Clinics existed!  Respond
