Dr. Paul Clarkson's Ratings
I found Dr Clarkson's staff to be helpful and respectful of my needs. There is almost always a wait when dealing with doctors but I found I never had to wait too long. I found everyone at the center to be helpful and considerate of what I was going through. I was given all the information I asked for and that I needed. The best thing is that I am now cancer free and Dr. Clarkson has saved my leg.

Dr Clarkson was very patient and kind with all of my questions. I have always found him and Paula very responsive. Paula always gives a realistic timeframe in which I can expect an answer to questions I might have. Thank you for the best expience one can have during a hard time. I have had two surgeries under his care and both times have found him to be a wonderful specialist.

Overall, I am happy with Dr. Clarkson. He is a doctor in high demand, so there is definitely always a wait to see him, and he does give the impression of being a bit rushed. However, he is very knowledgable and he will take the time to explain things in detail, when asked. He also is very kind and makes you feel at ease. His secretary, Paula, could certainly use some training on patient care and just overall kindness, as she makes you feel as though you are 'putting her out' anytime you call for info and appointments. The rest of his staff at the clinic are very kind. I feel lucky to have him as my doctor.

I had 4 surgeries on my knee, and I have nothing bad to say, only good things. I believe he is one of the best doctors I've ever had! Paula (his secretary) is also very professional, and always returns my calls almost right away.Bring your Ipad/book with you to his appointments, the clinic is always very busy. I would recommend him.

I believe Dr Clarkson's recommendations for surgery for my cancerous tumor were drastic and unnecessary. I have since had surgery elsewhere with great success and using a totally different approach that he recommended. The success rates he quoted were unfounded given my review of recent research literature. I would not recommend him.

My mother has recently been diagnosed with a very rare type of cancer not seen in Canada in 5 years. Dr. Clarkson has been great and explaining the details and has fantastic bed side manner. I would highly recommend him. We are just starting the first round of chemo for her tomorrow and we just found out she has cancer yesterday. He is good and rushing things along and proactive in his approach. Thank you to him for pushing this along to get things started quickly for my Mom. Doctors are busy especially cancer doctors and we appreciate the time that he spent with us.

GCT patient in femur. Dr Paul Clarkson briefly explained my situation and what kind of surgery I will be have. He is really busy, but he knows what he's doing. Couple of nurses in ward told me that I am very lucky to have had Dr Clarkson operate on me.

Wait hours for any appointment. Won't spend more than 2 minutes in the exam room with you. Never gives any info.
