11/07/14 5 5 5 5 I am an RN who went to Dr Nyirenda as a substitute MD while my regular MD was on Vacation. She was VERY attentive, informative, empathetic and was totally "there" for the entire visit. I felt like I was her only patient all day. She had to break some very devastating news to me which is going to affect my health for my entire life. She made sure that everything was clear to me and didn't rush me out. Several days when I needed to go back in an emergent situation, she took me in without hesitation within the hour. I love this MD. In 37 years of nursing, I would put her in the top 1% of all MDs I have worked with and have gone to. I would trust her with my life. Lucky are those that have her for a regular MD. (The gals in the front desk are very nice too btw!)

15/07/13 1 3 5 5 Dr. Nyirenda is the best doctor! The new Chilliwack receptionists are NOT very nice like Terry was in Hope. They should find a new profession if they don't like dealing with people. Wish Terry could have moved with her.

25/03/13 3 3 5 5 Dr Nyirenda has been mine and my kids Dr for 11 yrs. She has always been a caring and responsible Doctor. Now that she has moved to Chilliwack, we will travel to see her, but we MISS her staff here in Hope. I feel so lucky to have a doctor that genuinely cares about my family, and won't stop until we are 'better'. The new receptionists treat us like numbers, not like people. We simply cannot rearrange an appointment on the spur of the moment - it takes us 40 mins to get there!

26/02/13 1 1 5 5 Dr. Nyirenda is great, but I do have to say, the receptionists are extremely rude and unwelcoming. No phone manners either. Receptionists need to step it up.  Respond

10/01/13 5 5 5 5 I appreciate Dr. Nyrienda's caring and respectful attitude, she gives quality care. It is good to know you are treated as a person, not a number. She sets a fine example. I wish more Dr, patient relationships could reflect the caring and commitment myself and family members have received. There is never a problem to get a referral, and she follows up, in person or via staff, even though she is very busy. I really appreciate her concern for my health.

08/04/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Nyirenda is the most caring person I know. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a doctor. She's caring, thoughtful, smart and perfect at what she does.

04/05/11 5 5 5 5 I have been going to see her for years and have always felt well cared for by her and her staff. From when I was younger going through tough times emotionally, to any ailments, to recently starting a family, Dr.Nyirenda has always prescribed the right medicine and care, either by being someone I can talk to or precribing the right medicine. She is a wonderful Doctor! Her staff is also awesome, never had a problem with them ever! I highly recommend Dr.Nyirenda as a great GP!  Respond

11/03/11 3 5 5 5 Dr. Nyirenda has been the best doctor for my mother. My mother had moved away from Hope and told her that if she returned to Hope to come back to her. We called and her secretary said she is not accepting new patients. My mother is a former patient and needs to be seen by her. I had to request several times for her to ask the doctor, the secretary didn't seem to want to be as helpful as the doctor. I'm hoping Dr. Nyirenda will take my mother back.  Respond

08/02/11 5 5 5 5 I miss Dr. Vera SO much! We moved away from Hope about 6 years ago and she is, by a landslide, the best doctor I've ever had. Empathy, care, concern and compassion combined with a wonderful listening ear, skill and knowledge make her an outstanding Dr. Vera, if we move within 100 miles of you, we'll be back! Thank you for who you are. :)  Respond

23/11/08 1 4 5 3 I love Dr. Nyirenda. She is great with my children and very thorough. Although she does tend to overprescribe antibiotics in my opinion. Her secretary is sometimes rushed and not too nice and makes you feel bad for needing an appointment because the Dr. is so busy.  Respond

19/03/07 5 5 5 The only doctor my teenage daughter has liked and will go see. She has helped us continually and takes every medical concern or condition seriously. Always gets to the root of the problem. She doesn't rush you, always easy to get an appointment with, asks me how my daughter is doing when I go in to see her. I believe she provides care over and beyond her medical duties because she really cares for her patients and their welfare. Also its great to have a woman doctor that understand women issues.  Respond
