18/05/12 4 5 5 5 The best doctor I have had. I've never waited 5 minutes past my appointment time and he is extremely thorough in his analysis. He has left no stone unturned in trying to eliminate a chronic bladder infection that my daughter has inlcuding ultrasound, referrals to urology at Children's Hospital et al. He has genuine concern and really cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him.  Respond

14/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr "G" is one of those rare professionals who combines genuine empathy and understanding while dispensing thorough, first rate medical support and care. Anyone fortunate enough to be taken on as one of his patients will no doubt experience the same excellent health care as I have. Dr "G" went above and beyond in providing quality care and support to me as I recovered from a serious motorcycle accident and then unrelated lung surgery this year.  Respond

06/11/07 5 4 5 5 Can't really add anything new to what's already been said about Dr. G. We're happy just to find a doctor that was accepting patients near where we lived, but a quality one like him was a welcome bonus. His staff is great too. If he is still accepting patients, he is worth the drive down south.  Respond

15/10/07 5 5 5 5 We moved from California and landed in Calgary as immigrants. We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Greyvenstein who took very nice care during my pregnancy and baby's birth. I was nervous being a first time mom and the very first meeting with doctor made me comfortable and determined. We can't thank doctor enough for the care he took and for his subordinates at Rockyview Hospital and ofcourse not to forget the helpful and welcoming staff at the clinic.  Respond

11/10/07 5 4 5 5 Love him! Was disappointed he moved from the clinic in my community, but it is well worth the longer drive to keep him as my family's doctor. Easy to talk to, caring, and always greets you with a smile!  Respond

27/09/07 5 5 5 5 I LOVE Dr G. After moving to Clagary and finding out I was pregnant, finding him was an answer to prayer. He was gentle and thorough with me all during my pregnancy. Since my son was born, he quickly discovered his milk allergy and reflux problem and teated him accordingly. He recognized my symptoms of post partum depressionand sympathetically treated and counselled me through. When he heard that my husband had been laid off from his job he even knew of another position and recommended him for it even though my husband ended up going in another direction. Dr G is not only an exceptional physician but an incrediable human being as well. His hands truly have been blessed by the hand of God. I hope my and my husbands jobs never take us away from Calgary because giving him up as a Doctor would be a huge loss to my family. We love you Dr. G.  Respond

He has this ability to make me feel comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable setting. He is also wonderful with my other children.

06/08/07 5 5 5 5 I have been going to Dr. G for the past 2.5yrs since I had my son and I am so happy with his care. He really is a very genuine and caring person. I just feel so lucky to have found him when we moved here a few yrs ago and only wish I'd found him before I started seeing my OBGYN. To this day I still wish he had delivered my son. Thank you Dr. Greyvenstein for your excellent care you provide to me and my son and all your other patients.  Respond

28/05/07 5 5 5 Dr G. is by far the best doc we have been to. He is highly skilled with my children and has put them at ease every time. My two and a half year old said it best on our last visit: Mommy, he is a very good doctor!"  Respond

15/05/07 5 5 5 Dr. Greyvenstein is an amazing Dr. He is not only very thorough, but an absolutely amazing person to. I highly recommend him for young familys with small children. Best Dr. we have ever been with. We used to see Dr. Faul at the same clinic, but would recommend that you see Dr. Greyvenstein instead.  Respond

13/04/07 5 5 5 Dr. Greyvenstein is by far the best physician I have ever encountered.He answered my questions thouroughly and explained in detail the priority of the problem and the alternatives.

29/03/07 3 2 2 Dr. G has an incredibly good personality and great bedside manner. I think as a person he is in the right profession. His skills on the other hand are not as good as they should be. I have been misdiagnosed three times by Dr. G. He tries very hard and comforts a patient well, but his knowledge in overall general medicine requires some assistance. Great person, hit or miss Doc.  Respond

15/03/07 3 5 5 Dr. Faul is or was our Doc but he couldn't deliver my son. I like Dr. Grev better. He was very helpful and caring. I'm upset that when I went to make my son's 4 month check up Dr. Faul was away and the lady on the phone was very rude and told me I couldn't see Dr. Grevvenstein because he wasn't taking any of Dr. Fauls patients and he's got his own. Dr. Grevvenstein made me very comfortable when my son was born. Thank for being there at 2am Dr. Grevvenstein. You did a great job and I wish you were my family doctor.  Respond

He is AMAZING with children, has a great sense of humor, super understanding, thorough and EXTREMELY knowlegeable. I called all of my neighbors and told them about him right after our first visit and now half of the block goes to see him! We NEVER feel rushed, he ALWAYS takes the time to answer all of your questions no matter how silly they are.  Respond

I moved into his practicing area just over a year and a half ago and have been greatly pleased with his demeanor, knowledge, care, punctuality and decisions.

12/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. G is, indeed, one of the best doctors I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I trust him totally; he is very thorough, very knowledgeable both as a GP and an OBGYN, and answers questions with patience and understanding. We rarely have to wait in his office, and everyone I know that sees him speaks very highly of him, and we're all blessed that he is our doctor. Thanks, Dr. G. for being the wonderful person/doctor that God has brought to our community. (Oh, by the way, ladies, he's an expert at performing PAP smears ... I didn't feel a thing the last time! 10/10)  See Responses

12/03/07 4 5 5 Dr G is a great doctor. I have seen him a few times when Dr. Faul is away (who is my regular doctor). He almost delivered my last baby (missed by a few minutes!)

22/02/07 5 5 5 We have recently moved to Saskatchewan from Calgary and we really miss Dr. Greyvenstein! He is an amazing doctor and just as great of a person. He genuinely cares about his patients and what is happening in their lives. He always takes the time to listen and never rushes you out the door. He delivered out first baby and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to do so. We regret that he won't be able to deliver number two when the time comes. We have been spoiled by having such a great doctor in Calgary and now we just can't find one that compares in Regina.  Respond

17/02/07 5 5 5 My family moved to Calgary 3 years ago and had a very hard time finding a good dr. He takes the time to listen to everything you have to say and dosen't make me feel like we are wasting his time. I think he genuinly cares about all his pateints and your worries quickly become his. I never hesitate to bring my kids to him for anything knowing that he is a parent too. He always greets us with a smile and seems to really love his choice for a career. I would and have recomened him to anyone who will listen.  Respond

02/01/07 4 5 5 Dr Greyvenstein is a Godsend! We moved to Alberta in May of 2005 and found him shortly thereafter. He has been nothing but wonderful with the care of our family, from our two sons, to my husband (he has Chrones), to my mom (early stage dementia). He always remembers those that are caring for family members and asks how we are handling different situations. I would recommend him without reservation. He does sometimes run a little behind but knowing the care he gives, it's very understandable.  Respond

06/12/06 5 5 5 He was our doctor in Arborg, Manitoba before going to Alberta. We miss him very much. An excellent doctor, one of the best. He sent my husband to a neurosurgeon (Dr. Neil Berrington in Wpg.) for consultation and surgery and all his back problems are gone. Thanks again.  Respond
