15/01/09 5 3 5 5 As they say - one must wait for good things. Dr. Sawkiw is well worth the wait! He is on top of his game. He gives you the time of day and I love how after he elaborates on something - he says "any questions?" It gives the patient a chance to digest and consider if they do truly have any questions that they have not yet considered. He is a thorough investigator of problems and I will wait however long it takes knowing he's the doctor I will see.  Respond

27/02/08 5 5 5 5 He has to be the best doctor, he has been my doctor since birth and is the most attentive and compassionate doctor. He takes as much time as you need and explains all the options available. There is no limit to the questions you can ask him. The wait is definetly worth the time he spends with his patients.  Respond

17/01/08 5 3 5 5 What can I say but excellent care and understanding...no wonder he's so busy that the wait times are long but he puts in a extra effort on each and every patient day in-day out. Lately I've booked my appointments in the mornings and that makes a big difference. A very dedicated person in his profession. Being the 3rd generation to have him says quite alot about this well respected MD.  Respond

23/07/07 5 5 5 5 I think of Dr Sawkiw as a quardian angel who has preformed miracles for my family. He has never discounted my knowledge when treating my special needs daughter. He is the most caring giving physian that I have met. His staff is wonderful also. It was a huge loss, when he choose to give up his hospital priviliges, but I fully understand why he needed to as he was working night and day. I thank my lucky stars and more for having you as a doctor.  Respond

04/07/07 4 3 5 5 Dr. Sawkiw is an awsome doctor. He is always going the extra way to make sure that all issues are looked into. With my father about 10 years ago went into the emerg and was discharged with a diognosis of heart burn, it turns out with Dr. Sawkiw's determination my father in fact had a major heart attack and needed a triple by-pass. If not for Dr. Sawkiw who knows my father may not be with us today. Thank you Dr. Sawkiw for your determination and dedication to your patients and your practice. Dan  Respond

17/04/07 3 5 5 Dr. Sawkiw has treated me for over 30 years, since I was a small child. He treats my parents and my children. We couldn't ask for a better doctor, caring, patient, always takes the time to listen. When my dad was dying of cancer, he became too weak to leave the house. Doctor Sawkiw visited him at home several times, and was there when he passed. He is a truly amazing person and doctor, and we are all very blessed to have such a caring person look after our health care.  Respond

14/01/07 3 5 5 An excellent doctor, very caring, takes the time to listen to you which may explain some of the reasons he is so busy....My only complaint is when he must leave due to an emergency when he is the on call coroner....  Respond

14/01/07 3 5 5 I am grateful to have Dr Sawkiw for a family physician. My only complaint is his attitude on alternative health care. Years ago he used to know that what the patient believes will work is a very powerful influence - now he mocks (gently) any non-traditional approach. He's been my doctor since he took over Dr Longmore's practice years ago. Dr Longmore had a real God complex and refused to see patients any more if they asked to see a specialist. I used to take my babies to a pediatrician in another city because you just can't get another family doctor here. Dr Sawkiw was like a breath of fresh air - a doctor who didn't seem overly programmed and who thought for himself. Sadly, he seems to have lost much of that but I think he's probably been overwhelmed with work and too many political issues trying to determine health care. I highly recommend this caring man.  Respond

10/01/07 3 5 5 a very caring professional, although you hava a long wait. He always has time for his patients. He always asks if you have any other any other concerns, not like some of our current doctors who will only treat one ailment per appointment which is an abuse of the health system. Patients who have this doctor are indeed blessed.  Respond
