I recently saw this specialist for the second time after meeting one of his patients at a fundraising event who could not stop talking about him and how great he was. I waited 6 months to see him and almost gave up but im so glad i hung in there. I am in my mid 40s and have struggled with Crohn's disease since I was 25. I've had two surgeries and in general have never felt well. I've seen half a dozen GIs and my last two would not give me the time of day. Dr. Panaccione is one exceptional individual. He spent one hour with me personally on my first visit and explained which symptoms were due to Crohn's, which were due to my surgery, and which may be completely unrelated. He did a major overall of my therapy, gave me some simple advice. in eight weeks he has transformed my life. To think that if I went to see this man 15 years ago I would have gotten a major portion of my life back. His passion for wanting you to get better and get your life back is inspiring. Oh and he's not hard on the eyes either.
I've seen this doctor for the last year. He has an absolutely incredible bedside manner and for the first time since having an embarrassing disease I felt I could open up to someone to discuss my fears and concerns. He was very patient with me and explained all my options and together we developed a plan that has made me fell better than I have in the past decade. He is often away but has an amazing support team and I can always get a hold of him by email. Can't thank him enough for everything he does for all us IBD sufferers.
He has been helping my mom for over ten years my mom just recently passed away and I got no call saying sorry for your loss. Broke my heart
Oh Dr. P !! I can't say enough about this man. Started seeing him when I moved to Calgary in 2000. Took part in his Humira study. Have had maybe 3 relapses in 10 years since starting Humira. Moved back to Edmonton area in 2007. He tried suggesting a doctor in my vicinity and I said no way! I travel every six months to see him. His staff answer my e-mails same day. When I happen to be relapsing he's always there for me via my regular GP. I love him :) He is without a doubt the best doctor EVER !! If you are ever lucky enough to get into his practice . . stay there, listen to him, believe in him. He knows what he's doing.
I saw Dr Panacionne in 2002 after I was having severe digestive pain and bleeding. He got me in quickly and did a colonscopy. He took the time to explain everything in detail,took tissue samples, and was gentle and not judgmental. I am still having digestive problems today and was trying to get into see him again through my doctor but my doctor keeps telling me that Dr Panacionne office won't return his calls/referral? I find this shocking considering his office has always been so efficient in the past. I've given up now because I asked my Doctor 3 times about this. I was hoping that I could get in to see him again because it's rare that you find a Specialist that cares, explains everything and tries to help instead of just being all about money. You're lucky if you get in to see this Doctor!
I have had ulcerative colitis for 21 years and Dr Panacionne is my specialist. My most recent colonoscopy is, in my opinion, a great example of why Dr. P is the most amazing specialist I could imagine. I am breast feeding and wanted to have my colonoscopy without sedation. He answered my email inquiring about doing so within 5 minutes of me sending it. I was glad to hear he was fine with my decision. I underwent the procedure without sedation and can honestly say it was a good experience! He and the nurse (who was also excellent) walked me through everything and they were both supportive and informative. Thanks very much to both of them! I know it sounds very odd to refer to a colonoscopy as a positive experience, but it speaks to what an incredible doctor he is!
I've been seeing Dr. Remo for my Crohn's disease since I was 17. I was very stubborn at that age and he was very patient and explained the disease in a whole new way that made me want to take control of my life. He has always been pleasant and has very relaxed bedside manner which makes me feel comfortable. I've moved away to university but it's like he is an angel by my side. He let's me email me if I have questions or problems and he responds almost instantly. When I return to Calgary he always fits me in on short notice. I like the fact that he cares about me, things I do with my life, and my family. He remembers everything about me and makes me feel more than just another patient. We need more doctors like him to care for us.
I am a nurse who has a daughter that has seen Dr. Panaccione for the last 4 years. I also happen to work with him one day a week as an endoscopy nurse. Without a doubt he is the one to see if you suffer from Crohn's or ulcerative colitis. All our docs have the ultimate respect for him and he has doctors from all over the world come and train with him. I hear patients sing his praise over and over again and that is why I asked him to see my daughter who was struggling with her Crohn's. He has a tremendous bedisde manner and is warm and caring. My daughter just loves him and he has transformed her from a patient who was a prisoner with her disease to a vibrant confident woman. If there is one thing I can say is that he is passionate about his IBD patients and gets a little curt when patients don't follow his advice. I think he takes it too personally and gets frustrated. Remo if you read this remember you can only help those who help themselves.
