Dr. Nelson Greidanus's Ratings
I'm a 42 year old woman and I have had active Rheumatoid Arthritis since age six. I knew that one day I would have to have some joints replaced, and it so turned out that my right hip was the first large one to go. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Greidanus as I had my hip replaced just over a year ago, and it has been a tremendous success.
Eventually, and sooner rather than later, I'll have to have the left one done as well, and there's no-one else I would want doing the surgery. Capable, compassionate and well-respected, Dr. G. is at the top of his field. I would recommend him for anyone who really needs help, as I certainly got it.
Dr.Greidanus has always worked with me over the years. I find him happy to be around, and very professional. I have never had any wait time. His staff is great. I always have a pleasant and positive responses when I have to go in for knee surgery. Thank you fo everything.
I notice that someone is complaining about having to wait for an appointment with Dr. Greidanus, however, while waiting, did you notice the amount of people waiting for knee, hip and other surgeries? This Dr. is amazing and I had my hip replaced in May and had and do not have now any pain since the surgery. I told him it was a miracle what he could do for people suffering with arthritis in the areas he works on and gave him hug to say thank you. He's the only doctor I've heard of in many years that calls a family member post surgery to let them know their loved one is doing great! I can't wait to get my knee fixed up again as it's 17 years old and should have only lasted from 7 to 12 years. Give these surgeons a break, it's very difficult to schedule so many surgeries and if one has to wait well, do you want your surgery done by the best or what????
It's amazing, it's like I won the lottery! I am forever grateful to Dr. Greidanus, 'SK' and the rest of his dream team for the perfect left hip they gave me on April 28th. At 11 weeks I'm walking without a cane and have no pain. What I've been given is my health and a quality of life that I've never known. There's just not enough words to say thank you.
I waited 3 HOURS for a 5 minute appointment with the doc. This is UNACCEPTABLE. Patients have lives too and their time is important. The doc said 'sorry' but that doesn't give me my 3 hours back OR the huge amount I had to pay for parking. I feel that Greidanius does not really respect his patients if he makes them wait this long!
I found that Dr Greidanus is a very efficient and knowledgeable Orthopedic Surgeon and the staff at the Vancouver General Hospital to be the FRIENDLYIST and most Helpful Hospital staff I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
I trust Dr. Greidanus with my life. He was always very caring and helpful. Both of my hip replacements are working perfectly. no pain, and I can do everything and lead a pain free life. Dr G. and Lydia I thank You for everything.
Thank-You Dr. Greidanus! On August 4th 2011 at UBC you gave me the best birthday present of my life! A brand new - pain free - beautifully functioning left hip! I turned 55 years old on the day you operated on me and now - three weeks later - my new hip and I are still celebrating! My family - and especially my very athletic 14 year old daughter who had missed having her Mom with her on many outings because of my mobility issues - think you are very much "The Man!" Thank-you also for being so very kind, understanding and for visiting me (and all your patients) on a Friday evening at UBC even though your vacation had started earlier that day. In this family you are our hero!
Dr. Greidanus will be doing my up and coming total knee replacement revision, but I am here to compliment and thank his assistant Lydia. She has been so helpful and has gone out of her way to accomodate an out of town patient. She has gone beyond the call of duty as far as I am concerned and has made my life so much easier, to which I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart. Lydia you are one special lady and Dr. Greidanus must know what a great assistant he has.
Very bad bedside manners. He didn't listen to my concerns after he told me that he wouldn't do surgery on me. He does not have the patients' best interest at heart. No matter how I asked the questions, he just said he had already given me the answers. He was disinterested in what I was telling him. I felt very disappointed and dismissed by his poor attitude. At the end I broke into tears. He was rude and abrupt. He still spoke to me like I was putting him out, or wasting his time.
