11/04/12 5 5 5 5 What can I say about the man who performed open heart surgery on my 8 day old son...the surgery went perfectly, my boy showed little swelling and was transferred from the PICU back to NICU 2 days ahead of schedule. Looks like he will lead a perfectly normal life thanks to Dr. Rebeyka and all the fantastic staff at Stollery Hospital. My son had TGA and was diagnosed after birth. Surgery was the Arterial Switch. Good bless Dr. Rebeyka, his staff and Canada's health care system. I will never complain about taxes again after being given a world class surgeon to save my son's life!  Respond

13/04/11 5 5 3 5 Dr.Rebeyka did an OHS for my daughter and we couldn't ask for anyone better. He doesn't say much and we have to ask lots of questions but we are confident that he's one of the best. The surgery went great but there were complications after and he's always around to check on her in PICU. We are glad that he's our surgeon for such a big surgery..  Respond

13/08/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Rebeyka operated on my daughter when she was 6 days old and again at 1 year. He couldn't have been any kinder and we are forever in his debt. While sitting in ICU in the middle of the night I would see him pop in to check on his patients. My daughter is now 18 and we have him to thank for her great health. We were sad to see him leave Toronto and Edmonton is extremely lucky to have this fine surgeon.  Respond

30/07/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Reybeka did a Tetralogy of Fallot repair on our daughter at 12 weeks old. She is doing wonderfully today (6 weeks post-op). Dr. Reybeka is a brilliant man that knows his stuff. He answered all of our questions and even stopped by the cardiology unit on a day off to see how our daughter was doing. He definitely cares about his patients and we felt very comfortable with our daughter being in his care. He's an amazing surgeon.  Respond

13/06/07 5 5 5 Dr. Rebeyka is a wonderful doctor, who has an amazing talent. He gave us our son back, and we are able to watch him grow. I can't thank Dr. Rebeyka enough for what he has done for our family. Our son had become extreemly sick after a cardiac cath, and ended up in the hospital for 3 weeks. Dr. Rebeyka was on hollidays, and came in just to see him. All I have to say is what dedication he has towards his patients.  Respond

03/05/07 5 5 5 Yeah, what else CAN you say? My son turned 18 this year,had a defect that would have meant certain death but Dr. Rebeyka changed that prognosis to a thriving young man who loves volleyball, basketball and everything else he can get his hands on! We wrote a thank you note and we overwhelmed to receive one back! This is a busy man. We sent him some newspaper articles to show him that saving my son was a day well spent, and he replied to those too. His bedside manner was fine. Not bubbly,no, but not everyone is. After the surgery, he was very patient in his description of what was done and I appreciated him taking the time to explain it in layman's terms. He will hold a place in our hearts forever, outgoing or not.  Respond

10/04/07 5 5 5 I can only say that it seems others have had the same great experience with this Doctor as we have had. His superior knowledge and skill saved my daughter's life, and gave her a new lease on life. He doesn't hesitate to check out his intuitions about a patient by ordering one more test, just to make sure. His bedside manner is polite, business-like with parents and one can tell he genuinely cares for his young charges by the way he interacts so positively with them. I felt that my daughter was getting the best care possible with this doctor. What more can one ask?  Respond

03/04/07 5 5 5 We cannot say enough about Dr. Rebeyka's skill or character. He performed open heart surgery on our daughter when she was 5 and she turns 10 this year and is absolutely thriving. His knowledge and care was awesome. Years later he made his time available for a one on one interview for a school project complete with pictures and video. Our hearts as parents where repaired the day Dr. Rebeyka became our daughters surgeon!  Respond

19/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Rebeyka is amazying to me . He preformed a myomectomy on me in sept of 98. Which means I am still here today and I now have had 2 children . He then flew to calgary in feb/06 to assist in another myomectomy. He is always learning and looking for new ways to help his patients. A truly dedicated doctor . I only wish that there were more like him and his team. Perspective...its the health care system that fails not the actual doctors and nurses . Try to remember that the next time you are waiting at any medical office.  Respond

12/02/07 5 3 5 Dr. Rebeyka also saved my child's life (four years ago) repairing a very sophisticated heart defect and for that I will be eternally grateful. Not the most cheery guy I've met, but I'm OK with that. I think he is a surgical genius and we are very, very blessed to have him here in Alberta.  Respond
