27/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Seal is an excellent plastic surgeon. I took my mother in for a mass removal and his demeanor, knowledge, and ability to communicate with her put her completely at ease. He clearly articulated the risks and his recommendation with the facts so we could make an informed decision. The consultation, procedure, and post-surgical care were extraordinary. There were no complications and his work was immaculate. Dr. Seal is exceptionally caring and competent, the perfect combination for a surgeon! Kaye, Dr. Seal's assistant was thoughtful, efficient, and charming. Overall I could not ask for a better doctor or customer service for my mother in this situation. I am grateful to have found him and to have had him help her. I would strongly recommend him as a professional who takes great care and pride in his work.  Respond

10/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr Seal is fantastic! I recently underwent a mini-abdominoplasty along with some liposuction and my experience has been stellar. Although it is still early in my recovery, so far I'm extremely happy with the results. The follow up has been excellent as well. Upon my first meeting with Dr Seal, I was immediately struck by his expertise and relaxed, friendly bedside manner. Following my surgery, I unfortunately experienced a lot of nausea from the pain medications but I was able to contact him personally--over the weekend--and he prescribed new medication as well as offered to meet me at the hospital if necessary (it wasn't necessary, thankfully). It was a huge relief being able to contact him directly and he did not make me feel as though I was disturbing him in any way. It is also important to add that his MOA Kaye is an absolute doll! Extremely friendly and efficient. There is literally not one thing I would change about my experience! Dr Seal and Kaye run a wonderful practice.  Respond

26/05/14 5 5 5 5 Before my surgery (breast lift & tummy tuck), Dr. Seal was thorough, patient, kind, easy-to-talk-to, and never in a rush to get to his next patient/task. He answered all of my many questions with detailed, straightforward responses -- even making himself available by phone + email as I travel for work. At my surgery, Dr. Seal was reassuring, and explained everything we wanted to know. (Even the post-op nurses said how 'special' he is compared to other doctors - more personally connected.) All of my follow-up visits were the same, with Dr. Seal providing exceptional service. Now, my results are outstanding! More than I could have hoped for. He is truly a gifted surgeon. Through the whole experience, his receptionist, Kaye, echoed the same: she is available, approachable, warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. She keeps a tight ship, ensuring efficiency of service, and is accommodating and flexible. She is an excellent representative of Dr. Seal’s practice, and just a lovely woman.  Respond

22/04/14 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Seal for elective cosmetic surgery. I was very nervous about the whole process and procedure, but Dr. Seal and Kaye Watson at the front desk made me feel comfortable and at ease. From the initial consultation all the way through to the follow up I was well taken care of, and all my questions and concerns were thoroughly addressed. I never felt pressured into making a decision or booking a date as soon as possible; everything was catered to my comfort level. I had consulted with one other doctor prior to meeting with Dr. Seal and there was a notable difference in the time and care taken with discussing the procedure, my options and taking measurements. I can't say enough about how positive the experience was, and I am very pleased with my results. I highly recommend Dr. Seal.  Respond

26/02/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Seal is a gifted and caring physician. I initially saw Dr. Seal in Whistler to have a growth removed from my face. His level of care is phenomenal from the initial visit to complete follow up care. He listens carefully to any questions you might have and explains procedures completely. There is no scar on my face. I knew Dr. Seal would be the surgeon to see after losing over 150 pounds and needing skin removal surgery. What a talented and knowledgeable man, I am so thrilled with the results. Also,thank you to Kay at the front reception, also part of Dr. Seal's caring team. I highly recommend this surgeon for any medical concerns you might have.

15/01/13 5 5 5 5 I can not give higher praise to Dr. Alex Seal. He has a warm, professional bedside manner and his attention, patience, and communication skills were excellent. I wish all doctors were this good. He was on time and thorough, yet I never felt rushed. He answered all of my (many) questions clearly and in a way that I felt cared for and supported. Many doctors seem to answer, but never check that they are understood, but this is not the case with Dr. Seal. His support staff were helpful, and professional. I am extremely satisfied with the results of his services. Overall, this was the best experience I've had dealing with the medical profession. Thank you Dr. Seal.  Respond

16/05/12 5 5 5 5 I cannot recommend Dr. Seal highly enough. I've been treated by any number of specialists in my life and he is among the finest I've encountered. Excellent patient educator, willing to listen to and respond to all questions and concerns, thorough follow-up after treatment, and totally satisfied with the results of surgery. An "A+" medical experience, including all interactions with his office support staff, who are equally helpful, courteous and respectful.  Respond

17/02/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Seal is a caring and considerate surgeon with good bedside manner. He was on time and efficient but not rushed. He takes the time to answer questions and communicates well with his staff and patients. I had minor hand surgery done with Dr. Seal at St. Paul's. He kept it as minimally invasive as possible so that recovery was quick so I can return to work soon.  Respond
