Dr. Nicole Christina Hodgson's Ratings
I was repeatedly told by staff at the cancer clinic that Dr. Hodgson was a fantastic surgeon and they were absolutely correct. She was sensitive but frank and I felt informed through every step in the difficult process of having a bilateral mastectomy. She is a very approachable doctor and when I requested an alternative treatment option Dr. Hodgson informed me of the statistics and was supportive of my decision/s. She is def a busy, in-demand, doctor but I did not ever feel rushed. Unfortunately, there isn't time for a lot of chit chat when there are so few surgeons dealing with so many cancer patients. I also consider her support staff to be efficient and professional in every way. She/they are a credit to the medical profession.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
What can I say. She is the best. Without her I would have lost my husband alot sooner. She is very honest, open and truthful and compassionate. Great bed side manner. My hat goes off to this lady. My husband respected and trusted her fully. God forbid he didn't have her. Thanks again Dr. Hodgson for all you did. I will be forever grateful for the extra time you gave us.
