08/11/13 5 5 5 5 We have had Dr Bird since the early and unexpected arrival of our first son. He has been AMAZING with my son since day 1 and as well with my husband, myself and our family. HE helped us when our then 6 month old son was coming off a feeding tube and made us feel as though we were the main concern for him. He also was right there when our second son was born. I can not say enough good things about Dr Bird, I ofter refer to him as the "God Doctor" Dr Budden is also amazing as well and we love seeing her too for check ups. The girls in the office, LOVE THEM, they are so friendly and inviting. If you are able to get Dr Bird... You are VERY LUCKY! He's smart, caring and although the child is the patient, he cares about the WHOLE family. He's THE BEST in our eyes! :)  Respond

21/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Bird has been my daughters Dr since birth, she is now 17 and still with him. Dr bird has been the most caring, trust worthy Dr I have ever met anywhere including all Dr's from the IWK hospital in Halifax whom I have dealt with numerous times. If DR Bird is your childs Dr you have simply the best in my opinion....  Respond

14/06/12 1 3 4 4 It isn't really Dr.Bird I am rating I am rating the office staff. My Daughter goes to Dr. Budden which is in with Dr. Bird's She is a good dr but the office staff is disorganized. And they throw there patients away. IF you miss an appointment, they make you go through the whole referral process again, which is wrong when you have a sick child. I think this is wrong, I had asked for a different number to put on my chart and it wasn't and I was put down by the staff. I think the office staff is very rude and disrespectful toward the parents of the patience. If i were the Doctors I would do a REHAUL and get new STAFF. This wasn't the first time I felt this way because I would just let it go but it's every time I think it's time to look for another doctor. I think you should feel important no like you can be discharged when your a patient. And that is how they make you feel. I would go as far as Halifax to get a new doctor for my child if meant having respect!  Respond

29/07/09 5 4 5 5 I saw this doctor the other day for my Dear Son. Nothing major, just some weight slippage between 11 months and now, but we wanted to be sure. HE WAS WONDERFUL!!! I could not beleive how helpful, thorough, kind, gentle and patient he was. I worry about everything(in fact I have an anxiety disorder) and he really took the time to quell my fears and explain everything. I put 4 for punctuality, as he was a bit late and got interrupted, but he explained he was having emergencies all day, and had to help a girl with SVT out in the ER and had done an emergency Cesarian that morning. Thats a pretty ok reason to be late with me! My son LOVED him. Got a great kick out of him. We will be going back in December and i cant wait, just because hes great lol. Highly highly reccomended.  Respond

15/07/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Rod Bird is the most caring and sincere doctor I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He took genuine care of my son since birth with his many health problems, but what makes him exceptional is his sincere concern for his patients and their families. He cares about the children as if they were his own. He truly goes above and beyond his call of duty. We are truly blessed to have him in Sydney as a Pediatrician.  Respond
