27/10/12 5 4 5 5 An amazing person who is also an amazing family physician! Kati has been caring for our family for 16 years and I dread the day she decides to retire. She's knowledgeable, personable, and compassionate. You never feel rushed with her (but be prepared to wait in the waiting room because she gives everyone the time they need). If something stumps her, she'll research it or make a referral. Kati understands that health care is a partnership and seeks to engage patients in a way that helps them achieve the best outcomes; she shares her vast knowledge and trusts that patients do their part to improve. Yes, she has limited office hours, but you can book in advance, and if you need to be seen immediately, her residents work with her to ensure the same high standards are met in their care for you. A top-notch physician with a great support staff. Well done, Kati & staff!

12/12/11 3 3 5 5 I love seeing Dr.Ivanyi. She is very calming and understanding and always knows the answer. I find it very hard to schedule an appointment as you can't schedule ahead of time you have to call the morning of and if you don't call right at 8:30 you don't get in. (she is also only there 2 days a week) I do miss having a full time doctor  Respond

09/04/10 1 2 4 4 I love Dr. Ivanyi, she is helpful and knowledgable -- when you actually get to see her. I strongly dislike the new booking procedures that the clinic has started, it makes it extremely frustrating as a university student from out of town, trying to book an appointment a month in advance for when I know I will be home. The reception staff can be rude and not helpful at times.  Respond

07/01/10 5 4 5 5 Dr Ivanyi is THE defintion of Family Doctor. She is very approachable, she listens attentively, she is empathetic & formulates a plan of action in collaboration with the patient. As appropriate she readily refers to specialist. I fell very fortunate to have her as my family doctor. I have knwn her since her residency days.  Respond

12/02/08 4 4 5 4 Great Doctor, I understand the wait times. She is worth it. Staff is great except for one receptionist, ( Guess who??), please lose the attitude, you definitelty stick out from the rest of the staff who are great!!! Not a perfect score, but not a perfect health system ( blame the government. Glad to have you as my Doctor!!!  Respond

18/05/07 4 5 5 WONDERFUL doctor! she is very empathetic, and actually stops what she's doing to listen closely and look you in the eye while you're speaking. she doesn't judge or make you feel rushed. she encourages you to participate in your treatment. the whole practice recently moved to a beautiful new location on Upper Ottawa and the rest of the staff i've had dealings with seem to be very similar of mind and attitude. she is respectful and very helpful and is always willing to actually HELP you either directly, or by referring you to a specialist. She treats you as an equal and is never dismissive. A wonderful practitioner and kudos to her and her colleagues.  Respond

07/05/07 1 5 5 I've been with Dr. Ivani for 11 years now. She was my Dr. while I was pregnant with my first. At the time it was shared care. Since that time, I've switched Dr.s. I've never had such a good Dr. before. She really listens (very difficult to find that in a Dr.). In my eyes, she's just amazing!!! My only issue with the care from that clinic would be that you have to keep calling for your results (in my case, if you don't, the results get lost or forgotten about). That's the only frustrating part. But, I wouldn't blame the Dr. for that. And the reseptionist could be a little nicer (I don't think she likes her job much and it shows).  Respond

11/04/07 1 5 5 What a gem! This is one awesome doctor with an awesome support team. Always friendly, always positive, always supportive, amazing problem-solving. Listens to concerns and works with patient to come to a treatment plan that will work for the particular patient; no cookie-cutter solutions here! Gentle, patient, empathetic, and truly concerned. The whole medical team within the clinic (doctors, nurse practicioners, nurses, and even clerical staff) seems to share similar attitudes. A great doctor who is training up others like herself. Cudos!  Respond

28/03/07 4 5 5 Dr. Ivanyi is probably one of the most patient and understanding doctor's around. She listens to what you have to say and will never judge. She does recommend alternatives and suggestions. As Dr. Ivanyi is a teaching doctor she never lets her patients medical treatments suffer. It is great that she has other doctors and nurse practitioners to assist or she would wear herself out. If you are of the lucky ones to have her as your physician consider yourself well taken care of.  Respond

24/03/07 3 5 5 Extremely knowledge and respectful of patient's wishes to be involved in care decisions. A very caring professional. Front line staff could be more timely in responding to requests for requistions, test results, etc...onus is often on patient to remind to book referral and to provide test results which is why lower rating on punctuality.  Respond

22/03/07 3 5 5 Dr. Ivanyi is great. I am disappointed when I don't get to see her but, am greatful that another Doc can see me. the staff, especially receptionist, could do better. less attitude and more timely responses would be helpful. the wait time sometimes is unexceptable.  Respond
