I have never met a doctor like Dr Kastrukoff. He is kind, caring and thorough beyond belief. Like others who have commented here, I found my way to him having been treated poorly by other neurologists. He has patiently followed every angle of my MS before narrowing down a diagnosis that makes total sense bur no one else could see. The excellent rating for punctuality is based on this. He will be late, he's always late, but once you see him you get his full attention for as long as you need it. I once sat in the waiting room with three other patients. He was running at least an hour. All of us commented that none of us complained because we knew we would receive his full care, attention and extensive knowledge.

Dr. Kastrukoff had to do a lot of extra work that my previous neurologist of 15 months didn't bother to do and helped me by diagnosing the cause of my trigeminal neuralgia from lesions in my brainstem. He helped me to get a surgical procedure (rhizotomy) to take me out of pain so that I could eat and talk again. He made the diagnosis of MS and we are now taking steps to assess further with complete MRI of brain and spine to explore treatment and management. He takes his time and I have never felt rushed out of his office. The last time I was there, I was the one to close the meeting after he had answered all my questions. I am in good hands now and so grateful for his kindness and professionalism.

Great caring, knowledgeable doctor. Extremely busy, but takes time to listen. Very patient even when tired, patient overloaded and late in the day. I feel like I may have a chance to live as I was going down and my symptoms were not taken seriously. (a Rarer, more aggressive disease). Got me in for treatment right away. Like a lifeline.

Dr. Kastrukoff has been my neurologist since I was first diagnosed with MS around 20 years ago. He is soft-spoken with a very comforting and kind manner. He is also direct and will provide you with all the information you need and more. There have been many times I have come with questions about new treatments I've heard about, and he always listens respectfully and then gives his approach and thinking. He does a lot of research and attends many conferences, so he is up-to-date on all recent and ongoing research, trials, medications, etc. I cannot imagine having a better neurologist than him. He is the example of what doctors/specialists should be.

This Doctor was the first one after four years suffering from unusual neurological symptoms, who has listened to me. He was extremelly nice, helpful, calm, and smart about every questions, and every answer he gave me. Finally I feel that I have arrived to the place I was looking for, I have found a knowledgable person, who will take care of me. I am absolutelly looking forward to my next appointment with him, and I know, that even if I have something uncureable(what he has finally diagnosed)I will be in good hands. Thank you Doctor!

This man is of the highest calibre in every regard. He is an excellent listener, an exceptional diagnostician, a truly gifted physician who cares for his patients. Always professional, always easy to talk to with one's concerns and problems. He goes to great lengths to explain the patient's problem and the various ways to treat the problem. His compassion for each of his patients is genuine. He is a credit and a shining star to the Canadian Medical Association. I can not say enough good things about this doctor. We need more like him!

You will wait a long time to see him, but it is very much worth it. He will not rush you and wll explain everything very clearly. He is flat in his delivery but behind that is a very compassionate man.
