05/04/13 5 5 5 5 I received a bi-lateral mastectomy in late August 2012. I am 28 years old. She was professional, has great bedside manner and I felt comfortable asking any question. When she told me I was in remission, I could see she was truly happy for me. For me that was the most memorable moment while being under her care. Very compassionate, highly skilled and great person.  Respond

27/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Nicole Hodgson was absolutely amazing....my sister was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in August 2012 and had her masectomy on December 20, 2012. Dr. Hodgson was not only wonderful in performing the surgery but her bedside manner was the best we have ever experienced....she was the first to reach for kleenex when my sister was struggling. You are an amazing woman and we feel blessed to have met you and all the staff at JCC. Thank you all for the care you gave my sister.  Respond

20/07/11 4 4 2 3 She didn't see me after my surgery. She didn't seem willing to listen to my questions. I felt that she didn't take me seriously. She was rushed and left me without all the information I needed. After my follow-up visit she was unconcerned about where I was to go next. I felt I slipped through the cracks. She is an excellent surgeon though.  Respond

21/12/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hodgson performed my Bilateral Breast Mastectomy in April of 2010. I feel like she was an angel sent from heaven. I searched high and low for a Breast Surgeon that was willing to do a nipple sparing mastectomy. Not only did I find one with Dr. Hodgson, she was extremely trained and skilled at the procedure. I thought this was only something I could have done in the States, so it really felt like winning the jack-pot because I was able to get the procedure done here in Hamilton. Dr. Hodgson has a radiance about her that I felt as soon as she entered the room for my consultation. I knew instantly that she was the surgeon for me, and that was after I had consulted with 3 reputable Breast Surgeons in Toronto at the Princess Margaret. Thank you so much Dr. Hodgson for allowing me to be whole and for choosing to work with other skilled surgeons such as Dr. Avram - plastic surgeon. My results are far superior to any reconstruction photos I've ever seen. http://losingtheboobs.blogspot.com  Respond

06/12/10 5 5 5 5 My wife is still receiving care for breast cancer. Fantastic surgeon but an even better person. When you are going through the worst event in your life you want someone that cares and wants to help. With Dr. Hodgson, you get caring and expert help. She is the absolute best. We can't rate her high enough. I don't know under what circumstances others found her lacking but she has provided us with choices, listens and absolutely cares.  Respond

06/12/10 5 5 5 5 I would give Dr Hodgson a 5. Her staff was always very cheerful and helpful. I can not say enough about her making time for me. I was scarred and probably a bit annoying due to other family members having cancer. She was kind, empathetic and firm at the same time. This has allowed me to move forward . Helpful, always has given me the time I needed to answer questions and provide areas where I can get factual information. Her knowledge is top notch. Any nurse that has seen the work she has done has asked me who the surgeon was as the work she has done is top notch. No matter how bad things got she treated you with care and dignity. 5 thumbs up!  Respond

I will be forever grateful for the extra time you gave us.  Respond

17/04/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hodgson is the most caring and knowledgeable doctor in her field. Anyone who thinks that she is rude or unsympathetic must be on drugs. It is so nice to have a skilled expert in breast cancer that is female...I wouldn't trust anyone else with my surgical care.  Respond

21/01/09 2 4 1 3 This is the worst doctor i have ever met in my life. Very arrogant and insensitive. She thinks she is the best. I was one of her inpatients and i have seen how she treats her nurses and team. Slavery is all I can say. It took forever to arrange my follow up with her.  Respond

18/05/07 5 5 5 There is no rating high enough for this lady !! She is an amazing Doctor. I was referred to her when a mammogram discovered a lump in my breast. I was terrified and extremely anxious when I went to my first appointment at the Juravinski Cancer Clinic. Within minutes of meeting her I knew I was in good hands. She is very intelligent and skilled in her field. She is kind, compassionate, professional and to top it all off a really beautiful person. Her nurse that works on each patient with her is fabulous as well. She performed my surgery and wasted no time getting the first available time slot because she knew how worried I was that the lump may uncover breast cancer. She did an amazing job during the operation and left a perfectly straight line for a scar unlike a male Doctor I had remove a lump I had twenty years ago. If I find anymore lumps I will only go to her. I am sure she graduated with top marks from med school. A+++ for Doctor Hodgson !!  Respond
