03/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kim Ireland is by far the finest physician I have yet to come across. Her care and empathy are extraordinary; never mind her sense of humour. I am truly blessed to have made her acquaintance and highly recommend her to anyone seeking a proactive, top-drawer health care practitioner.  Respond

06/11/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Kim Ireland is the ultimate family doctor! Remembering my first visit with her 20 years ago she explained everything with drawings and easy to understand terminology. Over the years she has treated me like her best friend. When my first son was born at 3:30 in the morning she came to the hospital to check him over at 4 in the morning. I couldn't believe it! No matter how far she runs behind she will always take the time you need with her without feeling rushed. She always greets me with a huge hug as well as one when I leave. She is extremely thorough. I am blessed to have found such an incredible doctor.  Respond

30/10/12 1 1 3 5 The receptionist is rude and often cranky. The wait times are insane 1 hour+ for a scheduled appointment. Good Luck getting an appointment, especially since the 3 day work week in office. You have to make an appointment 2.5 months+ in advance for some appointments. It's a good thing she knows her stuff, inside and out (like any doctor should).  Respond

08/03/12 1 2 3 3 Dr. Ireland has been our family doctor for 23 years. There was a time, when the legendarily long wait times to see Dr. Ireland were truly worth it. Over the past year, her staff, her bedside manner, and her level of caring and compassion, have all slid rapidly downhill. The revolving door turnover of her office staff, seems to indicate an issue that may or may not account for the mostly awful attitude and service of the staff she employs. The newest woman is, by far, the worst I've encountered. The quality of Dr. Ireland's medical care seems now to be fading as well - unacceptably long waits for an appointment, unreasonably long waiting room times, increasingly uncaring bedside manner, and an unnecessarily lengthy delay in proper diagnosis of a serious illness recently, have all convinced me, that I need to find a new doctor.  Respond

03/05/11 5 5 5 1 Very dissappointed with her diagnosis at the walk-in clinic at Fortinos on Upper Middle and Guelph. She wrongfully diagnosed my 4.5 yr daughter for strep throat, when she hadn't even done a swab test!  Respond

12/07/10 5 5 5 5 Never will you ever find a better doctor than Dr. Ireland. Dr. Ireland is a brilliant, meticulous and a most thorough doctor who takes the time to really listen to her patients. I have been a patient of hers for over 20 years and now that I have a few health issues, I can see just how thorough she is in taking care of me. Dr. Ireland knew right away that I needed to see a specialist and arranged for me to go immediately. Although she knew that I was nervous to go, she took the time to talk to me to convince me of her concerns which were exactly what the specialist discovered. Her patience and kindness are beyond what you could ever expect in a doctor and it is so evident that she cares so much about her patients and their health. I feel grateful to have Dr. Ireland as my doctor. She devotes her whole life to her work and often is in the office taking care of patients late into the evenings. If you are lucky enough to have Dr. Ireland as your doctor, you will know what I mean!  See Responses

01/06/10 4 3 5 5 Dr.Ireland is a top notch health care practitioner. She listens and cares about her patients. Empathetic and works towards solutions. She has been the only doctor of many to pursue and evaluate my decades long syptoms, refer me for testing and to a specialist who finally revealed my condition can be managed through medication. Thank You Dr.Ireland, you are a true star in your my book.  Respond

28/07/09 4 2 5 5 Dr. Kim Ireland is both an outstanding MD, and humanitarian. I switch family doctors to Dr. Ireland after a serious throat/chest infection that lasted far, far too long. Her diagnosis and prescribed treatment have me relief within hours. She is very much a "people person". Her diagnoses are right on the money. She is the epitome of a "Great Doctor." I unconditionally recommend her.  Respond

01/05/09 3 2 5 5 Dr. Ireland was my parent's doctor and agreed to take on my large family (7) when we moved to Hamilton. We followed her to Burlington as she is a wonderfully thorough and caring doctor. She is always able to accomodate our needs and is able to get us into specialty appointments in a reasonable time. We are very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and personable caregiver.  Respond

12/03/09 5 4 5 5 Kim Ireland saved my life. Serious and obvious symptoms that had been ignored by a previous GP were quickly picked up on by Kim. She immediately referred me to specialists who confirmed her diagnosis, and all shared with me that they highly respect the outstanding work that she does. They counselled me to "stay with her!" Do I wait sometimes in her office? Maybe, but I know that when it's my turn, I'll have her undivided attention and access to the best care by a GP that I've EVER had! I feel blessed to be a patient of Dr. Ireland's. Thank you, Kim, for doing what you do so very well.  Respond

21/01/09 3 3 5 5 My husband & I started with Kim in Hamilton and quickly discovered she is a wonderful doctor. She is thorough and an excellent doctor. When she moved to Burlington it was an easy decision to follow. I have said to her and many others - I don't mind the wait for my appointment, I know that I will be taken care of and my questions and concerns will be addressed. She is the best Family Physician I have ever had. How many people have a doctor that lists their hours in the local walk-in clinic for their patients to see them. That alone is very helpful and comforting.  Respond

31/05/08 4 5 5 5 Sinus fluid following down my throat caused congestion & coughing. Saw a diff Dr at the same walkin on Thu, he gave me just nose spray. Now Sat doesn't help, Dr Ireland game anti-biotics and puffer. When I ask for a note to rest today coz I can't work for 8hrs like this at the call centre over the phone, she was very considerate "do u want me to write you light duties or other job functions". Normally Dr are not willing to write doc notes, and don't want to involve about your work. Even if you ask them to write other job functions, they hesitate. First time a Dr is pro-active in helping me this way, unfortunately taking calls over the phone is the only duty I can do so I ended up with a dayoff without pay, but still ok at least I can rest my voice, that's all I care right now.  Respond

14/04/08 5 2 5 5 Dr Ireland is, by far, the best family doctor I've ever had. My mother is also a pt. of hers but due to the long wait time and the office now in Burlington my mother had to stop going to her because DARTS wouldn't wait 2 hours for her appt. A big loss for my mom to say the least. Her doctor in Hamilton does not even compare to kim. I hope she's my dr. until the day I die!  Respond

20/11/07 5 1 5 5 Why is Dr. Ireland always NOT on time??? Because she CARES to LISTEN and to EXPLAIN to patients like a professor. She doesn't rush through her appointment,often her assistant has to knock on her door to remind her that she takes too much time with patients. Once, she even came to our house to attend to my wife's medical problem. KIM is realllly a GREAT doc.  Respond

14/07/07 2 2 5 5 Dr. Ireland is a GREAT doctor. I have been dealing with numerous health issues over the last year and a half, and I wouldn't want any other doctor than her. I see her quite frequently (at least twice per month), and she always has a smile on her face. She is very understanding and always wants to make sure her patients are given the best care possible. Her concern for her patients extends way beyond their physical well-being. I have only been her patient for about 10 years, and started going to her when she was in Hamilton, but I would go anywhere to have her as my doctor.  Respond

19/06/07 1 5 5 'Dr. Kim' was my GP when she was in Hamilton. She was referred to me by Dr. Frank DiNardi. It became obvious that the wait-time to actually SEE her is due to the fact that she is very thorough & conscientious with every single patient. By FAR the best Dr I have ever had. Too bad she moved to Burl. She was always helpful and insightful, often with (un)solicited advice on topics other than my general health. Good Luck, Doc. "Calling all cats..." :^)  Respond

11/04/07 1 4 5 Kim is a great doctor and when she moved out of Hamilton it was a big loss for us but the way she handled the move was not appropriate as one day we were her patients and the next moment told we are no longer hers. She does not realize the hurt and the trauma her patients go through when she did this. On a personal level we wish her the best as she is a Superb doctor and the best we had every had in canada  Respond

12/02/07 3 5 5 Dr. Ireland has been our family docter for 17 years. We have followed her from Caledonia to Hamilton and on to Burlington. We would have no one else. You might have to wait longer but she gives you the same respect back. The best Doctor with the best knowledge.  Respond

12/02/07 2 5 5 My wife and I have been her patients since she started her own practice out of the Westdale Medical Clinic and wouldn't go to anyone else. Dr. I's only downfall is that you may have to wait 1-2 hours past the appt. time, but once you get in you have her undivided attention.  Respond

31/01/07 2 5 5 My family and I have used Doctor Ireland for many years. She really goes the extra mile for her patients. Excellent bedside manner and will give you all the time in the world. Wait times are long, but worth it. You can always go out for a coffee or book her massage therapist instead of staying in the waiting room. Her staff is very personable and professional.  Respond

31/01/07 2 5 5 One of the most compassionate and knowledgeable Dr.'s I've ever met. She may not be on time, but once you get in, you have her undivided attention for as long as it takes. Anyone like me who is lucky enough to call her their Dr., is in great hands!!!  Respond
