14/04/14 5 5 5 5 I recommend Dr. Blair to anyone needing a hernia repair. Great experience from start to finish. In his office he explained the procedure in great detail(type of surgery, what to expect, etc). After open surgery with GA, woke up with minimal pain and was able to walk right after. A bit of a wait from the time I saw him to the actual surgery but he's every bit as good as everyone says he is  Respond

04/02/14 4 4 5 5 I was referred to Dr. Blair after refusing the specialist in my town. I was pleasantly surprised by his demeanor and his positive approach to my situation. I like that he was all for NOT doing surgery and was clear about the pros and cons of either decision. I was also very happy that he said, "I trust in 30 minutes I will have all your questions answered and you will leave here informed." WOW! Thank you Dr. Blair for being such a positive influence on my health and well-being.  Respond

26/06/12 5 5 5 5 Had hernia surgery with Dr. Blair at the Delbrook surgical center. Best medical experience I have ever had. Dr. Blair is a excellent communicator with a pleasant but professional manner. Surgery was as painless as possible and I had a full recovery in just 3 short weeks. Would not hesitate to recommend him or the fabulous staff at the Delbrook Surgical Clinic.  Respond

29/12/10 2 4 5 5 Dr. Blair has amazing bedside manner. He is very knowledgeable and understand the concerns of the patient. The staff in his office is okay, but listen to the doctor and not the desk staff. Dr. Blair told me to phone the office every couple of days to check and see if a surgery date had become avaliable. When we phoned the office (as he said) the desk clerk told us not to call anymore and that we would be contacted with a surgery date. Well 2 weeks later we called again and lo and behold they got me an appointment. Lesson - listen to Dr. Blair, he knows what he is doing. Otherwise I would recommend this surgeon to anyone.  Respond

09/11/10 5 5 5 5 I have had more than 25 surgeries in my life to date. Over 7 years ago Dr Blair performed Breast Cancer surgery (fine wire excision & a lumpectomy-- 1 month apart)and I have to say he is the BEST SURGEON I have ever had. Most recently he repaired a hernia for me. In fact when the CT Scan showed the hernia, I asked my GP to refer me to Dr Blair as I would prefer that ONLY DR Blair operate on me if possible.I HIGHLY recommend Dr Balir. He takes the time to explain things in detail, answer any questions and is very considerate. He treats you like a human being and not just an MSP #. His office staff is terrific as well.  Respond

28/07/10 5 5 5 5 Seldom do you find a surgeon with the knowledge and bedside manner that Dr Blair has. I have had many surgeries by others and have never felt more at ease than I did under his care. As an extra- the incision closing was the neatest of sevral I have had healed perfectly.  Respond

13/04/10 5 5 5 5 He was my surgeon for my appendix which had apperenly burst 5 days prior to the surgery. 3 weeks later an absess formed at the incision. He driained it in the ER which im sure was had enough as it was and because i was awake i definatly didnt make it easy on him. He was AMAZING! He was very calm and understanding talked me through it and i didnt feel like one of many patients instead, i felt like i was his only one. On a few ocassions the nurses had to call him at home and he didnt mind at all. I am so thankful he was the surgeon on that night. I would reccomend him to anyone!  Respond

06/03/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Blair was excellent! After a botched appendectomy surgery (by another doctor), I was very nervous to have my gallbladder out.

04/07/09 5 5 5 5 I was very impressed with the way he handled my gall bladder removal, he has excellent bed side manners, and that means a lot for a surgeon in my books.

18/06/08 5 5 5 5 This surgeon has been around for a long time. Years ago I spoke with a neurologist from VGH who referred Dr. Blair to me. This friend said that if he needed any surgery for himself or family , it would be Dr. Blair that he went to. Having said that, my daughter just recently had her gall bladder out and of course we went with Dr. Blair.he's the BEST!!!!  Respond

10/04/07 4 5 5 There is no Dr. I would trust more than this surgeon. He did surgery on me 3x for emergencies and I had my daughter come from Kamloops to see him when no answers were found by surgeons there. He is amazing, thoughtful and caring. From the first time you meet with him til the last check up he ensures you know what you need to know to make informed choices and does great follow up.  Respond

05/04/07 5 5 5 A wonderful doctor, he performed my mastectomy and lymph node removal with no complications then or since. He was especially good with my husband who was extremely worried about the cancer diagnosis to his young wife (I was 31 at the time). He took time out to explain things to him on more than one occasion. It is now 7 years later and I am considered cancer free, I cannot offer enough thanks to him for his great work and for referring me to an excellent plastic surgeon for reconstruction.  Respond

30/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Blair performed emergency surgery on me for a ruptured appendix. He explained everything to me and my family and he followed through with exactly everything he told us he would do.
