27/01/13 4 5 5 5 Dr. Adno is the finest physician (of either sex) I have ever had! I switched to him in 1989 after my Dr. (of 10 yrs) was neve r available. Dr. Adno is compassionate, intelligent, caring, thorough, kind and patient. He goes beyond the call of duty. He has been my family Dr. for my kids from birth. I did not need a paediatrician for them. When a specialist is required/refer als for immediate same day app'ts, tests etc. r quickly done by him. He has written notes to take to emerg. dept.'s and calls ahead. He does not judge. When he must take a call-it may b from me, as I am able to reach him in emergencies to discuss urgent medical situations i.e. find out if I should bring my child to him/or take to emerg. hospital dept. When I had a collapsed lung, the hospital incorrectly tubed me-3x's. Dr. Adno determine what was wrong! He reinserted the tube properly, in his office! I have total faith and trust in him. His former receptionist Maggie was GOLD. They worked together well.

29/12/12 4 4 5 5 Dr. Adno is an excellent doctor, but I do wish the rules for patients regarding cell phone calls during appointments applied equally to him. There is a sign telling us to turn off our phones, but almost every time I see him, he takes a call. Other patients have reported the same thing. These usually sound like personal calls and they interrupt the flow of the appointment. Sometimes he seems so eager to talk to the person on the other end of the line that I have felt like I was being dismissed. I am not a demanding patient and am always very respectful of his busy schedule, but when I've booked a longer appointment for a complete physical, I hope for his undivided attention.  Respond

24/10/12 3 4 4 5 Dr. Arno is the consummate MD but I found too busy (his schedule) and therefore inaccessible when I need him (sports injuries). Although I have chosen another family physician, based on availability (not on performance nor knowledge) if you can deal with the wait (days and days), you will well served by Doctor B. Adno.  Respond

21/06/12 3 4 5 5 I left Toronto 15 years ago and still wish that this man was my doctor! I miss having such a thorough, helpful, thoughtful, and knowledgeable physician because some of the duds I've had since him have turned out to be bitterly disappointing. Dr. A., if you see this, keep up the good work. Much respect.  Respond

05/12/11 1 2 5 5 I have to say that though an extremely knowledgable and caring doctor, i have been kept waiting - last time over an hour - and had incorrect appointment times booked and very unhelpful reception staff. Also, if you have to wait two-three weeks to see your doctor and end up at a walk-in clinic every time you are sick, thats not good care.  Respond

11/05/09 4 4 5 5 Very knowledgeable and caring doctor. He has taken excellent care of our family for over ten years. We could not be happier with our GP. Sometimes the wait can be long later in the day, but much less than some other doctors -- it is just a busy practice. The most important thing is he actually listens to his patients!  Respond

10/02/09 5 5 5 5 I am very fortunate to be able to say I have a very competent, caring and extremely knowledgeable family doctor. He has helped my family in the last year through a very difficult time and takes the time out of his very busy schedule to make sure we are taken care of. We are grateful for such a great doctor and I do believe he puts his heart and soul into whatever he does. I must say, he will not prescribe medication unless absolutely necessary and this is very important to me. My family and I are truly in good hands. Thanks Dr. Adno for we absolutely trust you with our health.  Respond

24/07/08 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Adno for almost 10 years. Through all my years of seeing him I have never had a complaint. He is an incredibly kind and sensitive man. His professionalism is unparalled. I have referred many of my family members and friends to Dr. Adno and all have become patients of his as well. His practice is extremely busy, but he always takes the time to see how you are doing personally. I always feel I am recieving top notch care from him and am so thankful I have such a fantastic doctor.  Respond

04/06/07 4 5 5 Dr. Adno has been my doctor for about 2 years or more now and is a wonderful, caring person. He takes time with his patients and is very thorough. His knowledge base is broad and he has a great bedside manner. I would sincerely recommend him to anyone. I am a gay male and I feel very comfortable talking to him about intimate matters.

30/04/07 4 5 5 I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Adno. Although he runs a very busy practice, he always takes the time to go over your concerns in a thorough and professional manner. He has been an excellent doctor for all the members of my family (both adults and children). I am impressed by his knowledge - although he is a GP, he accurately diagnosed me with a relatively rare auto-immunity disorder (which is something even the neurologists found surprising). I would highly recommend him.  Respond
