11/06/14 5 3 5 5 Love Dr. Hall Findlay. She is straight forward and to the point but answered any questions I had with respect and care. I am blown away with my results (breast reduction)! The staff was friendly and careful with treatment. Not exactly on time but worth the wait. She listened to all my concerns and wants and I got everything I had hoped for with my surgery. Have a small bit of puckering which she has promised to touch up once I hit the 6 month mark. Would absolutely recommend her!  Respond

06/08/13 5 5 5 5 I had a BA on June 4,2013. I am very glad I chose Dr. Hall-Findlay and am very happy with my results. Dr.Hall-Findlay thoroughly explained the procedure, the risks and what could be expected for outcomes. She was professional and relatable! I had two other consultations with recommended surgeons in Calgary but I was the most comfortable with Dr. Hall-Findlay and felt that she explained details that the others missed. I am very glad now I made that choice. Dr. Hall-Findlay was also very willing to listen to my concerns before surgery and I went into surgery excited, not scared as a result of this! Everything now post op is exactly as I was told to expect. I am healing very nicely and very happy with my results. My best friends are jealous!! I highly recommend Dr. Hall-Findlay and her staff!!  Respond

29/07/13 5 5 5 5 I had a few reservations about going thru with a BA at first, but after researching Doctors and reading others experiences for months...I knew that Dr. Hall-Findlay was the right choice. From my first call to book my consultation to the day of surgery, I was treated with respect and always had my questions answered thoroughly. I'll admit that I felt like a BA guru myself! Dr. Hall-Findlay did the most amazing job, as my hubby and friends tell me that I have the breasts of a perky 17 year old! Since that's half my age...mission accomplished! If you have any questions or want to see my before and after...feel free to ask. I'm confident that Dr. Hall-Findlay will exceed your expectations. She did for me!  Respond

29/07/13 5 5 5 5 This dr is amazing. I had a breast augmentation in may 2009 and was very pleased although dr findlay suggested that I do a breast lift a well I did not as I was worried about scarring . Well my first surgery turned out amazing. Barely even noticeable scars. I decided this year that I wanted to have my tummy tuck done too and also did my breastlift and replaced implants at the same time.The before and after results are incredible! Her staff is very pleasent and helpful and the dr took a significant amount of time at my consult and prior to my surgery to explain and answer any questions that I had as well as to talk to me as they were preparing me on the operating table. I was very impressed with everything. Its a tough recovery for a tummy tuck but after only a few months I am thoroughly impressed with my results. I would definitely recommend dr Hall-FINDLAY to everyone . I actually have two people that have seen my results that are now doing a consult with her.

I highly recommend Dr. Hall-Findlay. Surgery is something you definitely do not want to cut corners on. It's also the best thing I could have ever done!

29/10/12 5 5 5 5 From my first phone call to Banff Plastic Surgery to my surgery and post surgery follow up I cannot say how impressed I am. Dr. Hall Findlay's bedside manner is unsurpassed in her profession and her skill at the surgery is amazing. She specializes in a specific area of cosmetic surgery - abdomen and breast and from what I understand people from all over the world travel to Banff to have her peform the surgery. The staff are top notch, professional and responsive. The stay at the Banff Mineral Springs Hospital was a bonus, looking out my room window at the Rocky Mountains while recovering. The food at the hospital was excellent. All in all, definitely check this doctor out!  Respond

16/06/12 5 5 5 5 Banff Plastic Surgery was recommended to me. After seeing Dr. Hall-Findlay, I knew I would get my surgery done with her, there was no need for another consultation anywhere else.

11/06/12 5 5 5 5 My experience with Dr. Hall-Findlay was excellent. The initial consultation was very informative and honest; Dr HF wanted to make sure that we were making an educated decision. I went to another doctor in Edmonton prior to my consultation in Banff, and I could not believe the difference. I was also extremely comfortable both before and after my procedure, and the staff was more than happy to see me the next day (before I flew home). I'm extremely happy with my results and have passed on my recommendation to several friends.  Respond

12/04/12 5 3 5 5 I had breast lift surgery with a small reduction by Dr. H-F in Dec 2011. I was very impressed with the way her office handled the entire process. After initial phone call, I received a informational dvd. Made appt for consultation. Short wait, maybe 2 months. Could have booked surgery within a month of consultation, but chose to wait until Dec. Surgery went very well with no complications. Nursing staff followed up with me twice. Went for follow up 1.5 months later in Calgary, waited one hour in waiting room so that was my only negative. I am happy with the results from the surgery and from the limited amount of scarring, even at only 3 months. Dr. H-F was very personable and very knowledgeable when I asked her questions. Never felt rushed or brushed off. My experience with her was very positive.

02/05/11 5 5 5 5 My experience with Dr. Hall-Findlay and her staff was exceptional from the time I walked in on my first consultation for my breast reduction to today with my follow up appointments. Dr. Hall-Findlay was extremely forthcoming with all information I need to know regarding the surgery and any possible complications that may result from the surgery. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and informative and more then happy to answer any questions I had at any time. Dr. Hall-Findlay did not give me any false/inaccurate expectations, she was very upfront when explaining what shape and size will be most realistic and visually appealing with me body type and my pre-surgery breast size. I am thrilled with my final result and would recommend Dr. Hall-Findlay to anyone considering this type of surgery.  Respond

28/01/11 5 5 5 5 I am celebrating my one year anniversary of my breast augmentation today and after a year I can say that not only do I have no regrets with getting the surgery, but I have ZERO regrets with choosing Dr. Hall-Findlay. I cannot say enough about how well everything went. Honest, up front and knowledgeable. The staff was amazing, the apartment was amazing, the whole experience was fantastic. Her help and support does not end when you go home from surgery. I had complications due to the actual surgery, not the implants(which she prepared me for as a possibility) and was able to reach Dr. Hall-Findlay at home on a Sunday. She gave up an entire day off to meet with me and do a second surgery. Once again. I cannot say enough and would recommend her in a heart-beat! Very happy with my results.  Respond

16/08/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hall-Findlay is amazing. I had my tummy tuck and breast lift done in April 2010. She well informed me of scarring, complications, expectations numerous times. I am overjoyed with my results already and to think that it will settle and get better is a bonus. This was my first major surgery. I was in pain, but I was told that before hand and was more than prepared. There were not hidden costs and Dr. Hall-Findlay was brutally honest with me. Her direct approach and no-nonsense attitude was great. having my body react the way it did and heal the way it has, I've been fortunate. I ensured I was in top health before my surgery as well.  Respond

29/04/10 4 4 3 3 I am so disappointed with my breast surgery. I already had breast augmentation but over the course of three years i had gained weight. I wanted a breast reduction and a lift and decided to go to Dr. Findlay because one, I heard she was good and secondly, because she was a woman and would better understand what it was I wanted. Well, I guess I was wrong. When Dr Findlay said she wasn't going to remove the original implants it didn't make sense to me so I called and spoke to a nurse to tell her that I wanted,and to make sure that Dr Findlay understood what I wanted. The lady I spoke with called me back to reassure me that Dr Findlay got the message and that the implants would not be changed. After a few months it seemed as though there wasn't much of a difference. I emailed the office and I voiced my concerns and that I would have to wait a year for the final result. Well it's been a year and I didn't get smaller breasts or the fullness.  Respond

21/06/09 4 5 4 4 I had a tummy tuck 9 months ago and am happy with the results, my friend had another surgeon do her's and had a drain, Dr.HF does not like drains my friend got a very smooth look very quickly. I had swelling for longer. I was thrilled with her "quilting technique," It's absolutely amazing all that extra skin gone,and the start of a six pack I had been working hard to see. My friend didn't have this done and regretted it. She is direct and to the point that's her style. I would love to have more lipo done it was amazing to get the results I did. She's a bit pricey but if you have had 3 kids, they do the leg work through the insurance company. I'm so glad I had this done just wish I would have done it sooner.  Respond

08/04/09 5 5 1 1 I went to Hall-Findley for a neck lift was told that I needed a face lift because I had to much skin. Had the sugery, had issues from the start was told to wait a year. Had some corrective surgery done by her and still need more corrective surgery done. As a result of what she was prepared to correct I went for a second opinion and was told that I need a neck lift (imagine how shocking that was) and that I did not need a face lift no matter how much skin I had and that I would not have walked out of his faciltiy looking the way I did and that he could fix most of the issues. Dr. Hall-Findley stopped doing any type of facial surgery within months of my sugery. I found that as long as you do not challenge her work everything is alright but not so if you question the results. Do your homework and that includes seeing more that one doctor.

09/10/08 3 5 3 3 I had an augmentation done with Dr. E.H.F. about 8 months ago. VERY disappointed with the results. I have many friends that have had augments done with other physicians, and after seeing their results, I couldn't wait to have mine done. I now feel COMPLETELY uncomfortable in a swimsuit/low-cut shirts as there is +++ rippling that you can see all around my breasts including in the cleavage area. They look completely unnatural, uneven, and I have HUGE scars!! They feel absolutely disgusting (all you can feel are the hugely rippled edges of the implants). Would NOT recommend this surgeon!!!

05/09/08 5 5 5 5 I have had a reduction as well as lipo on my legs with Dr HF and she is the best their is for breast surgery. Her staff is awesome, they are flexible and caring and BEYOND thorough. Hospoital staff at Mineral Springs are top-notch and you can't find better care. The lipo tends to be hit and miss, though. She keeps to her word about doing touch-ups if you are not happy with your results, but even the second time around on the saddle-bags on my outer thighs, they aren't great, but still much improved from original. She is a fantastic lady and really cares about doing great work, worth every penny. I tell everyone who has had a bad experience to try her--they won't be sorry!

12/07/08 3 3 1 1 I WOULD ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMEND DR. HALL-FINDLAY TO ANYONE!!! I chose to go to Dr. Hall-Findlay as breast augmentation is her supposed specialty. After making the trip to Banff for what turned out to be a group consultation, completely lacking of any patient confidentiality & basically a complete waste of time, I chose to book the surgery with her anyway. While I paid double what other surgeons were charging, I thought it would be worth it in the end. I awoke after surgery and immediately recognized that I was way smaller than discussed, with one breast significantly smaller than the other. At my first follow-up appointment, I pointed out my concerns about the sizing, asymmetry, significant rippling (even with gummy-bear implants) and stabbing pain to my left incision. Without any sort of reassurance or explanation, she simply stated, "that's too bad," and walked out of the room, leaving me in tears. I still feel taken advantage of and COMPLETELY unhappy with the results...

30/10/07 5 5 5 4 A year ago I had an tummy tuck to remove some very bad scarring and disfigurement from 2 emergency abdominal surgeries. Dr.Hall-Findlay was excellent. She is laid back and easy to talk to. I had a very difficult time deciding whether to part with the scars because one was due to an emergency in which I lost a baby. She was patient and understanding and even petitioned my health insurance 3 times to help with costs. They did so and I was able to afford the surgery. I don't scar well but I didn't expect perfection going in. I am thrilled with the result and my experience with the staff and the hospital in Banff was very positive. I would recommend her totally - she does care about your issues and she does not promise miracles but makes your experience as positive as she is capable.  Respond

In my opinion, if one listens carefully and goes prepared to ask questions, do your own research, as I did, then your satisfaction rate will increase. Follow-up was excellent, if I had a question no hesitation in assistance from her office. I give her a top rating, all 5's!

17/03/07 3 1 2 At first she appeared to be nice and confident. A size was determined for breast augmentation, however I would like to have seen sample sizes which she does not offer at her clinic. Immediately after surgery I could tell there was going to be some problems with the results, as the size was smaller that we had decided upon and different amounts were put into each breast. Neither of which was ever discussed. However I was told to wait the full year to see the final outcome. My biggest dissappointment is that one breast is placed higher up towards my collarbone than the other,and still today I find that at times it aches. As I expressed to her my complaints at each follow up appointment, she became more defensive in her attitude towards me and her explainations vague. Finally at the last appointmnet she said to me "Do me a favor, leave and never come back". I was obviously humiliated to be kicked out of a Dr's office. Today I am still uncomfortable in my left breast and also without a plastic surgeon. I do not recommend her to anyone.
