26/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Ukani did my breast reduction and I am absolutely thrilled. It's been 6 weeks and the new, smaller breasts are taking a beautiful shape and are even better than I'd hoped for. Minimal scarring, and he has been helpful and forthcoming with my questions about recovery.  Respond

06/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Ukani is GREAT!!! He did my breast reduction and I was booked in right away. He is professional, courteous and very good at what he does. He always takes time to explain things. The Nurses at Eagle Ridge all had good things to say about him too. I have no hesitation getting a tummy tuck in future from him as he was so good. His receptionist Nina is AMAZING! She goes above and beyond, and called me from home to make sure I attend a Dr. appt during her vacation time! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Ukani and his staff:)  Respond

10/07/12 5 4 5 5 Dr Ukani reattached my almost severed hand last year. He did a very good job. He is an excellent doctor. I have had to do a lot of physiotherapy, and have had a lot of appointments with the doc. He is always kinds and takes time to talk to me. I have regained most of the abilities with my hand and I am back to work. I am very greatful. Thanks.  Respond

21/02/12 3 1 1 1 Without commenting on his ability if you plan on being treated by him be prepared to sit and wait long after the time of your appointment. The only reason the staff, helpfulness and knowledge catagories have ratings is that a rating of the doctor will not be accepted without them. I had no contact with the staff as I atendd the hand clinic at the hospital for a routine cortizone injection and walked out after an hour of waiting. It was obvious the Dr.Ukani had massively over booked.  Respond

03/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Ukani did my upper eye lids a while ago and I am so pleased with the results. He did such a wonderful job, and no one knows I've had the procedure done so it's fun to get compliments from my friends on how good I look. He answered all my questions and encouraged a follow up to see him prior to the surgery to deal with any anxiety or further questions if I wanted. Also, His receptionists are absolutely lovely. They put an old lady like me at ease. Thank you Dr. Ukani and staff.  Respond

05/01/11 5 4 5 5 It has been almost 18 months since my breast reduction/lift surgery and I am so happy. I had issues with breathing, rib, neck and shoulder pain. 6 months post-surgery, I was able to return to the gym and started running again with no problems. I've since ran numerous races (including 1/2 marathons), have lost 23 pounds and feeling much better about myself. My pain and breathing issues have been relieved. My only issue is that why I waited so long to have it done! Dr. Ukani made me feel at ease/comfortable during my visits and made sure I was well taken care of post-surgery (Eagle Ridge Hospital) and scheduled regular follow-ups to ensure everything was healing correctly. He was very quick, knowledgeable and efficient in my appointments with him. He answered all of my questions. His staff are also very efficient and friendly.  Respond

07/01/10 2 4 4 3 Dr. Ukani removed 2 moles for me. While the surgery was very minor and could have been done in an office, it took place at Eagleridge hospital which added unnecessary extra cost to the health care system. The nurse who was supporting him handled a chart, a pen and other non-sterile items with her gloves before the surgery and didn't replace them or even wash before assisting with the surgery. Before he released me he gave me some fairly strong anti-biotics which I generally prefer to avoid, but given the poor sterile procedures that were followed, where probably a good idea. Even so, at one point, there was some puss in one of the wounds but it went away by itself. The end result was nevertheless very good.  See Responses

28/09/09 2 5 4 4 I had a good experience with Dr. Ukani. I need to go back to him for actual surgery soon and so far he has been helpful and easy to deal with. I found his staff to be unfriendly and it was what soured the experience for me.  Respond

07/05/09 4 5 4 5 Dr. Ukani did a great job with my breast reduction. No problems whatsoever. His staff is incredibly helpful and Nina was always ready to help with the many questions I had. The only thing I would want improved upon would be more detail as to what to expect with respect to recovery and reasons why there are restrictions. My questions were always answered, but I think it would be so much easier if they were answered before I asked. Apart from that, fabulous experience and friendly surgeon.  Respond

19/06/08 5 4 5 5 I saw Dr. Ukani for breast reconstructions after a mastectomy. He and his staff were incredibly kind and patient. I had many questions and concerns that he took the time to answer. He also provided a CD with information on reconstruction. He followed through with me at the hospital and was compassionate. The surgical results are awesome and my physio therapist said I had one of the best results she has ever seen. He does not do the tatooing of the aerola which I understand some drs. will but instead refers you to a private tattoo artist.  Respond

16/01/08 5 4 5 5 I felt confident that I was in good hands going into my surgery and for my follow-up visit with Dr Ukani. He does not spend time chit-chatting but gets to the point and seems very knowledgeable about his work. His office staff are WONDERFUL, competent, professional and very caring. Ninna was very compassionate and supportive of problems I had leading up to my surgery. Thank you to Dr Ukani and 'all' who made my expereince with them the best it could be.  Respond

15/07/07 4 3 2 2 Dr seemed rushed and did not appear to listen when I tried to convey my issues. Post-Op follow up was always rushed and I felt my continuing pain and infection was unaddressed and I will not return to this Dr. its been over 4 months now. Not impressed...  Respond
