16/05/14 4 3 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Rideout for 14 years and consider him the best GP I have ever had or could wish for. He has literally saved my life because of his diagnosis and the resulting early interventions. I leave his office feeling informed and confident of his recommendations.  Respond

26/10/13 1 3 3 3 Called his office September 30th 2013, was unable to get an appointment for a Physical Examination till January 2014, was also told they don't book appointments that far in advance. I'm sad to say, after 40 years, of being with Dr. Rideout I finally had to find a new Doctor. On top of which I'm charged $70.00 fee to transfer via "Xerox copy", my recent medical history to my new doctor. Has his office not heard of emailing PDF files, which require no Xeroxing? or maybe they did send a PDF file and just charged me a Xeroxing fee . Its really NOT very nice way to suck more money out the pockets of patients, particularly when I had on other alternative to get a Physical Examination.  Respond

20/04/10 5 3 5 5 Excellent family doctor! He was recommended to us by another doctor 12 years ago, and not a single time we regretted we chose Dr. Rideout. Professional, truly caring, knowledgeable and with great sense of humour. He always makes you feel very comfortable and does not treat you like a number. Waiting time is usually long, but it's worth it!  Respond

19/03/07 2 4 5 Dr. Rideout has been my doctor for about 17 years. He is an excellent doctor, very knowledgeable and always positive. My only minor complaint is that sometimes it feels like he's rushing you through a bit - my advice to him would be to take a bit more time to listen. However, I fault the BC medical system for this where they pay the doctors by # of patients visited which encourages a fast appointment.  Respond

14/03/07 3 5 5 Dr. Rideout has been my doctor for 20 plus years. I consider him not only my doctor but a friend as well. I feel comfortable talking to him about a variety of subjects from my mental health to my very personal physical concerns. He does not think twice about referring me to a specialty doctor if he has a concern. I like that he remembers our family's names and their activities. I really appreciate that he tries to make me feel like a good mom even when I'm feeling a bit blue. He is a great doctor that has stayed committed to his patients in an ever changing medical system that has trouble seeing patients as people.  Respond
