08/10/13 5 4 5 5 Very busy office but I understand why. Dr McIsaac will spend time to educate the patient on their problem and answer any questions you have. Appointments were made very quickly and I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The follow up bone scan and treatment were made asap and I have every confidence that I am receiving first class treatment.

21/06/13 4 4 3 4 I have seen Dr.McIsaac once after seeing a urologist in my home country who advised to take tests to determine the reason for my prostate enlargement (but did not have time to do so). Doctor McIsaac did not order any tests, but did a manual check-up and simply recommended to drink more water and cut on coffee, tea, alcohol. I followed this recommendations, but can't say it had any results. Now as I see other patients complaining about the same approach that proved to be not working for everyone, I will ask my family doctor to refer me to another specialist. Overall, the doctor wasn't either rude or caring, but did not listen much to what I was saying. Don't remember details about the staff, so just give 4 for it.  Respond

31/08/12 4 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr McIsaac now for about 10 years and has always had a most professional attitude, pleasant personality and is a no stress Doctor. Most comfortable putting my life's health in his hands. A doctor very at ease despite being, extremely busy. What more can be asked for? When you are in good hands. If you want to be babied or pampered then of course see another doctor. Per/ R.D.H.  Respond

26/01/12 1 2 1 2 Worst,an ignorant and arrogant doctor ever. if you have stone,he will keep asking you to drink water(any kid know that) instead of dealing seriously with your medical problem reasons and tests results. He doesn't care about reviewing your medical problem history just to keep your visit time less than 5 minutes.He requested wrong lab test for my stone.He will ask you to visit his clinic many-times as much as he can even though he did receive the lab test result so when you come he will say I did not receive the result yet let schedule another visit (wasting of my time). He still using obsolete hand writing sys instead of computer for your visit.His assistant Jennifer (rude and unpleasant)would not remind you for the appointment or requesting or following up any of lab result. She denies receiving my lab result even lab confirm that they sent it. She mixed up my result with other patience and send my family doctor wrong result.Waiting time around 1 hour at least.problem not solved.  Respond

21/05/10 5 5 4 5 He was great! I had him after an emergency trip with a kidney infection and he laid it out on the table. Went in, fixed me up and kept communication with my husband up to the fullest because morphine had making him hard to understand at times. For the return removal of a stunt, again, after the removal of the stent(stunt?) he explained exactly how everything had worked. His receptionist was great! I called a billion times with a billion questions. Sometimes it was busy but within 5 minutes I would get through. I came out with a heapful of new knowledge and never once was stressed or scared or worried. Between the two surgeries, they weren't dramatic or full of aweful memories. Just things got done and he did them with professionalism. Hope this helps.

25/10/09 1 2 1 2 Omg he is the worst doctor i have ever met. He was so arogant and cocky about his surgery for my husbands cancer. He did the surgery at 1pm and my husband was sent home at 4pm no irragating the bladder just said go home and everything will be fine. It was a nightmare, every 10 my husband was running to the washroom with blood clots coming out. Called the office, no help all they said was it should get better if not go to emergency. No paper explaining what to look for if having problems. Unbelieveable. He ended up in the Milton Hospital and Dr Ponnen excellent Urologist and nurses could not believe they sent him home without having his bladder irragated after surgery. Well i called them up and told them to just forget about him coming back he has a new doctor that knows what there doing. They basically didn't care less. I hope no one has to go through what my husband went through. Since his new docter he has had 3 more surgerys and they all went fine thanks to Dr Ponnen.  Respond

16/01/08 1 4 5 5 Worst most horrible secretary on the planet - rude and unpleasant- did not perform any follow-up to ensure surgical appointments were booked. Dr McIsaac is a very busy man but gave me great advice - the medical system does not work so manage it yourself. He did a competent job with my kidney stone problem and always seemed to have some time to chat with me. He is a man of strong opinions - everyone is wrong sometimes.  Respond

24/10/07 4 2 2 2 Dr. McIsaac has a very busy practice and perhaps that is why he does not listen well. If you are sent to him, write down your history and have questions prepared. He performed a cystoscopy on me to identify the cause of my bladder pain and frequent urination - my family doctor suspects interstitial cystitis. After his brief cystopic examination, he concluded my bladder was fine. He did not perform a biopsy of the bladder wall or distention of the bladder under anesthesia, or administer a potassium chloride sensitivity test, so his conclusion suggests that he is unaware of the standard tests for IC (as I was until after my surgery). In any case, After asking how to manage the pain, I was given the advice not to eat certain foods and recommendations for pain killers. One should really ask - why would foods be causing pain if there was not some kind of bladder damage (e.g. IC) and why would he medicate a bladder that was "fine". If you suspect IC, ask for a different diagnostician.  Respond

29/04/07 5 5 5 Was looking after my father-in-laws urological needs in the Trillium Hospital Stroke unit. Both my mother-in-law and my wife were relieved to have a man of his calibre (Chief of Surgury)look after my father-in-law.They felt comfortable with his explanation of proceedures and his post operative prognosis. Is very pleasant and polite to deal with and always has a smile for you even if he can't recall how he helped you. In his absence from the office I found his secretary extreemly helpful in keeping track of the doctor's where abouts.  Respond

27/03/07 3 1 1 My kidney problems increased greatly over two years because this doctor continued to tell me that the only reason I kept showning blood in my urine was because I wasn't being hygenic enough after "marital relations". After a consultation with another urologist I was diagnosed within two weeks and had surgical correction immediately thereafter. I would have gone through much less pain and difficulty (and humiliation) if I would have been lucky enough to not waste my time with Dr. McIsaac in the first place!  Respond
