12/08/09 5 2 1 3 Going on 11 months of excrutiating pain now and have had a family doctor and endocrinologist confirm that this surgery must be done. However this doctor refused to do the surgery saying that it would be to difficult to even try to get coverage. Literally told me ill just have to live with the pain, didnt even bother to try. When I commented on how busy his office was, he simply said he could spend more time with patients but then would have to see less people in total. Well maybe if you saw less patients you would actually have the time to care about all patients needs!!  Respond

02/07/09 4 3 5 5 Although Sigurdson did not leave me with a very good first impression, I have completely changed my mind after meeting him for a third time today. I have yet to have my surgery but so far he has been very kind, compassionate and personable. My surgery will take place to repair facial damage due to an accident, and Sigurdson has shown to be sympathetic. He never promises perfect results but after doing some research, I fully trust that I will be very content with his work! He has a good sense of humor and is easy to talk to. He has hundreds of patients and is in great demand, but always remembers me as well as his other patients personally and takes the time to develop a comfortable relationship between him and his patients regardless of his popularity. His staff and surgical residents are also very kind and compassionate. I highly recommend.  Respond

24/06/09 5 4 5 5 I had as great of an experience as you can when going into surgery with Dr. Sigurdson and his staff. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgable in terms on questions and concerns I had. I was very nervous prior to the surgery but the nursing staff along with Dr. Sigurdson, definitly put me at ease. My surgery went well, no complications. Regarding the follow-up, someone was always available to answer my questions that day when I had any. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Sigurdson  Respond

03/08/08 5 3 5 5 Thank you Dr Sigurdson for everything you done for me. I went through two mastectomy's,one seven years ago and the other five. I had no idea what to expect or how to get through this. I had 4 children to think of, the youngest being 1 year old. I put all my trust in you and Dr Topp, my dream team You helped me more than I could ever say or thank you for. When I heard you were leaving, although its completely understandable I'm feeling a little scared knowing you aren't just a phone call away. Your irreplaceable. I wish you and your family all good things in your future and again thank you so much. Rhonda Chinn  Respond

01/06/08 5 4 5 5 This is one of the best doctors that I know. I was in an electrical accident in 2004. Only for him, I would have lost the use of my right hand completely. He rebuilt the wrist as best he could and we were both amazed with the outcome. Although the use of the hand is at best minimal, I would still highly, highly recommend Dr. Sigurdson.  Respond

22/02/08 5 5 5 5 I first met Dr. Sigurdson about 11 years ago when he was doing his residency. I flew into Halifax from Toronto and took an unfortunate allergic reaction. I had to be rushed into surgery on my face to get the swelling down. After being in the hospital for 3 weeks and never thinking I would look the same again, his reasurance and bedside manner was outstanding!!! His knowledge put my mind at ease. Still to this day I feel very honoured to have him as one of my doctors, to help me throught the most difficult time in my life!!! Sandra Manthorne  Respond

15/03/07 2 5 5 This Doctor fought for me! He went above and beond for my needs I had been to two others before the age of 16 and after seeing him once he fixed "my problem". This man changed my life and when MSI first turned down my claim he steped in and threated a court fight on my behalf! He did a wonderful job and treated me with respect. I have only fantastic things to say about him, and often refer him to anyone who inquires. He also did my sisters breast reduciton and she couldn't be happier either!  Respond

12/03/07 4 5 5 Dr. Sigurdson is one of the best. As a breast cancer patient, my first surgery, which was an implant, did not work for me. I then had what is called a DIEP which I highly recommend to women who are considering reconstructive surgery. He is very understanding, kind and compassionate and has made the tragedy of having cancer more bearable. Dr. Sigurdson is very professional but caring, knowledgeable yet personable, and speaks at your level, not all medical terms, so to ensure you understand what is happening to your body. My quality of life would not be the same if not for his expertise and knowledge. I can't thank him enough for the care I receive as his patient and the outcome is almost perfect.  Respond

02/03/07 4 2 5 Although very knowledgeable, I found him to be arrogant, very close to rude. Ignored our questions which the intern kindly answered. He had a very curt, clipped manner. Weren't a bit comfortable with him; seemed as if we were bothering him.  Respond

01/03/07 4 5 5 After a mastectomy, I had reconstructive surgery performed by Dr. Sigurdson. He is a very professional person, helpful and most of all I found you could actually carry on and enjoy your appointment with some fun...not all seriousness. Very good surgeon in my opinion and glas that I was able to have him as mine.  Respond

07/12/06 3 5 5 Dr. Sigurdson is the most helpful doctor I have ever had. He is kind, sensitive, professional, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. I cannot recommend him highly enough. On occasion, I had to wait long periods of time to see him for an appointment, but this was not always the case, and even so, it was worth the wait. I always left my appointments having a clear understanding of my care and condition, and with a smile on my face.
