15/09/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. McMain was my pediatrician when I was young and I was so very privileged to have him as a doctor for my four children. He was always very concerned for the health of each child and was very good at diagnosing their illnesses. As a child I had my surgery on my appendix, the surgeon sent me home in spite of Dr. McMain thinking I wasnot ready. On Christmas day he made a house call because I was in severe pain and I needed to go back to the hospital. He also offered to make a house call for our son when he was quite ill. I have never met such a wonderful and knowledgeable doctor. Thank you Dr. McMain.  Respond

30/03/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. McMain was my doctor when I was young and both my children went to him. My youngest is 17 and I didn't want to go to anyone else. He was one of the big patients in the waiting room. You never had to wait he was always on time. When my son was two and needed stitches he met us at the hospital and was great with him. There may never be another doctor like him. Best wishes on your well deserved retirement. I'm glad you waited until my kids were older.  Respond

28/11/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. McMain retired about 2 months ago... :( and i just have to say that he was the best doctor i have ever been to for me and my son!!! Dr. M was my pedi when i was young and i was never scarde or anything to goto him, and being a first time mom it took so much worry from me to be able to bring my son to him. Even though he only could be his patient for 22 months i will ever be grateful. Sad to see him leave but a well deserved Retirement!!!!!! and thank you to Barb as well!!!!  See Responses

12/11/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. McMain is probably the best pediatric doctor. Dr. McMain has been my children's doctor for 24 years. I started to see Dr. Mcmain when my oldest(who is now 24)was 2 months old. He went to Dr. McMain until he was 16years old. My 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son have also been his patients. We recently moved to Alberta and shortly thereafter Dr. McMain retired. I am glad he was there for me and my children. He was always thorough and very knowledgeable. I am now in the process of looking for a pediatric doctor in Alberta which will not be an easy task considering, the doctor I have had for the past 24 years. Dr. McMain will be greatly missed by all of his patients and I hope he realizes the difference he made in many peoples lives. Too bad more doctors couldn't follow his lead.  Respond

18/08/08 5 5 5 5 Dr Mcmain is one of a kind. He always took his time with my daughter and I trust him 100%. I am so sad he is leaving and I dont know if I will ever come to trust another pediatrician in St Catharines the same way. My daughter has a heart condition and knowing that I could take her to Dr Mcmain and have him watch over her if she got sick, gave me great peace of mind. I wish you all the best and thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking us in. You are the best and we will miss you.  Respond

29/05/07 5 5 5 I've only seen Dr. McMain once but I received more information in one appointment than in 2 years at my sons other pediatrician. He was thorough and extremely informative. He took the time to sit down and explain everything we needed to know and made sure we understood what he was saying. I regret not placing my son under his full time care.  Respond

14/02/07 5 5 5 This doctor is the 'real deal'. He is exactly what a doctor should be. He is punctual, excellent bedside manner, truly cares about child and families, and takes alot of time to diagnosis the real problem. Appointments are scheduled very timely. I wish, at age 40, he would take adults! He is a thorough doctor and and extremely knowledgeable and caring. Hats off to you ... you're a rare breed !  Respond

25/01/07 5 5 4 Dr. McMain is a caring individual who deals compassionately with children. As a parent of an infant and preschooler, I bring both of my children to my appointments and Dr. McMain always involves my older child in the check-up of his baby sister. The office is run efficiently and your wait is never long. Whenever I've called because to make an appointment because of an immediate health concern with one of my children I've always been fit into the appointment schedule for that day. Dr. McMain is not quick to prescribe antibotics for the children, which I appreciate. Overall he is a great Pediatrician.  Respond

15/01/07 5 5 5 This Doctor is absolutely amazing. He is always punctual , always looking out for the best interests of the children. Is always thinking ahead and always prescribes meds only when needed. Is very very good at checking the children to make sure they are comfortable during the exams and admits to hospital when required. Never leaves you without an answer and if he doesnt have one he knows where to find it. I am completely happy with this doctor and definatly could never ask for a better one. There is nothing this doctor does not do- the children are his first priority and he loves them like his own . I am truly blessed to have this man looking after my children . Comes HIGHLY recommended  Respond
