09/04/11 4 4 5 5 Dr Marais has been our family Dr. for 12 years and delivered both my children. He is kind and has an amazing heart. He is like family and always very professional.

18/07/08 3 3 5 5 Dr. Marais is all of the above. He is the best Doctor that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Dr. Marais also delivered my child. After the birth child I came down with an infection and he made the time to see me everyday in his office for a few weeks, instead of me being admitted to the hospital. I can not tell you how thankful I was for that. Dr. Marais even took the time to call my home to see how I was doing. Very, very caring and compassionate Dr. whom I would recommend highly.  Respond

07/07/08 5 4 5 5 Ditto on all the glowing comments. Dr. Marais was one of the doctors I would see at a very good clinic in Maple Ridge. I was bitten by one of my parrots just below my lip and needed stitches. He suggested to me that he could do a better job by not freezing the area and could I handle it. I'm good with pain, so I told him to go ahead. Yes, it was a bit miserable, but I can't even see a hint of where the bite was. What CAN'T Dr. Marais do! I'm out of the Maple Ridge area and miss having the care of such an excellent physician. Actually, not quite sure what it was, but all of the doctors at that clinic were tops in my eyes.  Respond

27/01/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Marais is probably the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of having as a GP. He's helped me through the life and eventually the demise of my husband, through some pretty horrid health problems of my own, and has kept me sane through the whole time I've had need of his advice and help. I only hope he doesn't decide to specialize, although he is qualified to do so, because I personally have no need of an ob/gyn. He and his wife and staff have been most accomodating of my needs and demands and I would be very sorry to have to live without their help.

31/12/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Marais saved my son's life. The first time I saw him was when I was 20 weeks pregnant when I lived in Maple Ridge. My family doctor was away and he agreed to see me even though he was finishing for the day when I called. At first he thought I was going to miscarry, then he spent what seemed like an hour making calls and having me sent in an ambulance to Women's Hospital for surgery that ended up keeping me from giving birth for 6 more weeks - long enough for my baby to survive. I'll certainly never forget him.  Respond

04/08/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Marais is one of our angels. My son hurt his leg at work, saw a doctor who told him to get ex-rays and come back in a week. I took him to the clinic that night, Dr. Marais knew what was wrong with his leg, called up an orthopedic surgeon, and he was in surgery the next morning. (apparently an ex-ray would not have showed the problem) Then another time I had a problem, also concerning another physician, Dr. Marais took me on right away-------and I have been his ever since. I love Dr. Marais also.

06/05/07 4 5 5 I LOVE Dr. Marais. He always seems happy to see us and feels like part of our family! He gets down to the root of your problem and makes a quick informed decision. He really listens to you and takes his time (which may be why you have to wait a bit longer to see him). In my view though it's totally worth the wait! Highly recommend him!  Respond

27/04/07 5 5 5 After reading all the comments I am sorry I did not have Dr. Marais during my pregnancy! He is a terrific Doctor in general. He is one of the best doctors in Maple Ridge. I never feel rushed when I see him. I always feel I have been well looked after when I leave the office. Yes, we are lucky in Maple Ridge to have him!  Respond

24/04/07 5 5 5 This is my first pregnancy and Dr. Marais has been a real joy to go to - he is very knowledgeable and always leaves me feeling as though I'm in good hands. I look forward to him being my newborns' GP, as well as being my Dr. for the next baby. He also has some funny terms when it comes to discussing the baby as seen on the ultrasound, which really keeps one at ease and makes you feel comfortable. A great doctor!!  Respond

23/04/07 3 5 5 I agree with all of the other comments made about Dr. Marais. He also delivered my daughter and is caring for me now during my second pregnancy, as well as being our family doctor. He is very easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, very kind and genuinely cares (I believe) about his patients. I had a bit of a problem last week to do with my pregnancy that had me a bit scared, but he totally put my mind at ease and covered all aspects for me. He is great. Wait times are sometimes a bit of an issue, but from what I understand, they are with most good doctors, so it is something that I am willing to overlook to get care from such a great doctor.  Respond

04/04/07 5 5 5 HAD DR. MARAIS IN YORKTON. I EXPECTED TO FIND EXCELLENTS REVIEWS ON HIM AND IT IS GOOD TO SEE THERE ARE SUCH DR.S WHO TRULY ARE CALLED TO THEIR PROFESSION AND DO NOT LEAVE ONE IN A STATE OF BEING LET DOWN, LET ALONE TO EVEN FEEL THAT WAY! I NEVER HAD A DR. LIKE DR. MARAIS AND SHALL BE BLESSED ABOVE ALL EXPECTATIONS IF I FIND ANOTHER LIKE HIM. MY OWN EXPERIENCES ARE A REFLECTION OF ALL OF THESE POSITIVE REVIEWS, AND I AM CERTAIN WE COULD ALL ADD MUCH MORE, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO KEEP YOU READING TOO LONG : ), SO HOPING YOU GET TO SEE DR. MARAIS IF NEEDED!  Respond

29/03/07 5 5 5 Dr Marais is our family doctor who also delivered my daughter. He took such good care of us, and made me feel very comfortable. After my daughter was born he took pictures of us and gave us a CD with the pictures as well as a little pink teddy bear. He is the most thoughtful doctor I have ever had.  Respond

20/03/07 4 5 5 Sincerely the best doctor we've ever had. Always looks happy to see us, always remembers what's going on, and seems genuinely concerned with any of our problems. We feel he's very thorough in finding a reason/solution to any of our medical issues. Works very long hours, and yet never rushes through our visits.  Respond

16/03/07 5 5 5 Took me on at 37 weeks pregnant when no other doctor did. Wonderful bedside manner. Took photos when my daughter was born and brought them printed out for us the next day in hospital. Gets to the bottom of the problem. Listens to his patients. If you in anyway can have him as your doc-- you would be crazy not to!  Respond
