09/07/14 5 5 5 5 I had my hip replacement surgery done by Dr. Jeffrey Gollish on 20th may 2014. I was extremely pleased with the surgery. I have to say he is a fantastic surgeon. He explained me all the details before the surgery and what ever questions I had. That had made me very comfortable and confident. He and his whole team including his secretary are very professional and very helpful before and after the surgery. Even the nurses and staff including the physiotherapists are caring and very knowledgeable. The surgery went extremely well. He is the best surgeon in the field and I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. I pray to god to give him good health and happiness so he could help lot of people.  Respond

21/10/13 2 2 2 4 My comments about Dr. Gollish are mixed. He came highly recommended as my father required revision knee replacement surgery. During the 1st visit he took the time to understand my father's current state and was very transparent with us regarding revision surgery. In the end, we opted for the surgery - it however hasn't made things better. He was great to deal with post surgery, until our last appointment last week. He was in a foul mood for whatever reason and he appeared to be upset that we were even there; and yet it was his suggestion that we be there as a next step from our last appointment. He started with "what can I do for you today?" in a very sarcastic tone. Long story short, he recommended my father "find something to do to occupy your time so you're not always thinking about your knee" and walked out. My Dad can't take a pain-free step and this guy recommends a hobby as the solution. His demeanour during this last appt as a health care professional was very disappointing.  Respond

27/04/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Golish is a lifesaver. I am a 38 with degenerative hip dysplagia and live in Northern Ontario. Not one doctor would look at my xray let alone me. Dr. Golish has replaced both my hips and I am now able to do many things that I was missing out on with my children. Dr. Golish has a wonderful bedside manner. The staff at the hospital was great also. The only suggestion I would give is to bring yourself some snacks or have someone bring your meals for your hospital stay as the food is horrendous.  Respond

08/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Golloish replace both my knees in November 2001. It was a tough recovery, but it would be no matter who did it. The results are incredible and have been for 10 years. I you can be reffered to Dr. Gollish you would be very fortunate. If I had to wait half an hour or more at his clinic it was well worth it.  Respond

30/08/10 5 3 5 5 The man is a God! At age 40,I was nearly crippled with arthritis in my left hip (because of a childhood accident). I had hip replacement surgery with Dr. Gollish and that, quite literally, changed my life. He knows his stuff, all of the staff at the O&A are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Gollish to anyone facing this procedure. The outcome for this surgery isn't always completely successful, so you want to pick the best and that is Dr. Gollish.  Respond

16/06/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Gollish replaced both my knees the same day back in 2006. I was 71 at the time. The results were superb and I've been totally pain-free ever since. I've given his name to all my friends who suffer from osteo-arthritis. I've told them that when the time comes for replacement don't even consider any other doctor.  Respond

24/07/09 5 3 4 5 Let's face it, we're not hiring these guys for their beside manner! Dr Gollish replaced my right hip and will do the left one in two months. After 8 days I'm walking unaided, have a 3" scar and feel waaaay better than I did pre-surgery. What more could you possibly ask for? As far as I'm concerned, the man's a surgical genius. If he doesn't come across politician-slick, well, so what? I would much rather have an exceptionally competent surgeon than a glad-handed smooth-boy any day of the week.  Respond

12/06/09 1 3 1 3 While this man was recommended, I cannot see why. He lacked compassion for me as a competitve distance runner and refused to give me any information on my injury. I am not a pushy person, but it was all I could do to keep him from walking away. I cannot comment on his skills as a surgeon, but I KNOW I deserved better than what I got from this man, which was precisely nothing but attitude and 2 or 3 word answers to my questions. I waited 3 months for an appointment and even though I was not having severe problems walking or functioning, I was (& still am) very concerned about my hip labral tear and he made me feel foolish for "wasting" his valuable time. This is not right. Honestly, unless you are in obvious need of serious surgery, do not see this man. He is not interested in prevention or maintaining the health of those who are active and healthy.  Respond

21/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Gollish is magnificient. He replaced one hip and one knee of mine in the same year. It was perfect. They are 12 years old now and working perfectly. I would travel from anywhere in Canada to have his expertise. He is the best of the best..  Respond

18/03/09 5 2 1 5 His staff was great, his knowledge was tremendous but in the end it didn't work out and I moved on for a second opinion. I was recommended by my family doctor and after four visits with Dr. Gollish. We went from x-rays, to ct scans to requiring surgery to him nulling the whole procedure because of my age. I wished he had of told me this from the beginning instead of wasting my time for 18 months leading me to believe I would require surgery. It was like I met a totally different man on my 4th and finally visit. It's unfortunate because I later found out he's mutual friend's with a close family member of mine and how ironic that a close friend of mine's brother in-law had the surgery, who is the same age as me at 37. I wish things had of worked because I know his skills of performing joint surgery is impeccable.  Respond

24/11/08 5 5 5 5 It has been 3-1/2 years since this wonderful Doctor performed my knee replacement. He is kind, caring and so knowledgable. I even discovered his delightful sense of humour, even though he was extremely busy. Should I ever need the other knee done, it will be to Dr.Gollish I will return , even though I have to travel a distance to get to him. The staff ( all but one x-ray gentleman) of Sunnybrook were fantastic, and together, make it a first rate Hospital. Thank you Dr. Gollish and Sunnybrook staff.  Respond

25/04/07 4 5 5 Outstanding Orthopedics doctor. He operated on my leg 19 years ago - leg was broken off at the ankle. Did a great job of getting me back together. I noticed at the time his bed side manner was lacking but also noticed he was overworked at York Central. He delivered where it counted most, putting my leg back together, used 16 screws and two braces... took them out a few months later. He is one of the best saw bones in the GTA. I hope I never need him again, but if you need him, he will do a great job.  Respond

23/03/07 4 5 5 He is awesome with all his knowledge on the lower limbs. He performed surgery on my 20 year old daughter's hip that has helped her so much in reducing her pain and giving her so much more motion. This surgery has prevented my daughter from getting a whole hip replacement. What a Doctor!!!  Respond
