28/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr Squire is a competent professional. I attended her practice on the request of a well respected Vancouver Neurologist. She is part of a select group of Vancouver specialists who work together to solve complex medical problems. This Doctor has a skill set un-matched by her peer group. She is dedicated and understands her patient. Obviously I cant say enough. She is a problem solver that is not satisfied with average or getting by. Slow recovery process. She is patient and has a plan. I call her Dr. Pam- only one of her. She needs to be cloned. (Im over the needle phobia :) Best Regards  Respond

19/03/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Squire has been working with me for over a year. I have Fibromyalgia and it's not easy to find a treatment that works, but she doesn't give up on me. She is very caring and compassionate and I am fortunate to have her as one of my doctors.  Respond

21/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Squire is filling in for my Pain Dr in Kelowna while he is away upgrading his education and I am greatful for Dr Squire. She is knowledgable, caring, and she listens. I would recommend her to anyone suffering from pain. I have extreme Sciatic & Facet pain in my back, & having Dr Squire here while my regular pain specialist is away is something I am very grateful for, She is also punctual at the Kelowna office.  Respond

02/11/11 1 1 1 1 When she was in practice with the other female doctor she misdiagnosed my skin cancer by way of telling me (laughing) "I promise you it's not skin cancer"...well, she was sooo wrong. It was and it was serious. Shame on you Dr. Squire.  Respond

14/08/11 5 3 5 5 I have had nothing but the best treatment from Pam. She really does try to help every person she meets. I agree that both She and Sasha are great. [ I brought them both chocolate treats recently.] I feel like Pam has been a real life-saver and I don't care about waiting a bit[ bring a book] it's worth the wait.  Respond

18/04/11 5 5 5 5 After being passed around to a dozen "speciallists' and finding no luck or care, I finally found "the one". She is the best in the biz, the bees knees. Would recommend to anyone who wants the best of the best.  Respond

08/04/11 5 4 5 5 Dr Pam Squire is hands down the best doctor, pain or otherwise, I have had over my 36 years. No other Doctor who has treated my Chronic Pain over the last decade, understands the complexity of living with constant pain and all that comes with it. Although she can get a bit behind schedule as the day progresses, it's because she will NEVER rush you out until she's covered all your concerns. To me that's worth the wait every time. Thanks Dr. Squire.  Respond

09/11/10 5 5 5 5 I don't mind if my car mechanic is not the best driver and I don't care if my plumber gets lost in the drink but my medical Dr must be the best. I believe Dr Squire to be the best. She is up to date with matters far beyond what may be limited to just a specialty. She is good with people. She is a good Dr and she knows it. Part of being good is knowing your good. I trust my life with this Dr which to me says it all. I hope to maintain this Dr/Patient relationship we have developed over some time and I hope my treatment continues to be a success.  Respond

27/02/10 5 3 5 5 Dr. Squire is an amazing Pain Specialist. I may have to wait when I have an appointment- but the wait is well worth it as she is very thorough and knowledgeable. Her skills are amazing at listening and comprehending what is happening in your unique body. She is a great addition to my health care team. This lady knows her business yet always remembers that she is dealing with another human and not just an MSP number. I have had a huge improvement in the quality of my life due to having Dr.Squire provide very good medical care.  Respond

12/10/09 2 2 5 5 This doctor is a nice lady and helped me when i had terrible head pains. She can be late sometimes but is better than most doctors i've seen. She's an understanding woman. Dr. Squire and i get along very well. I just wish more could be done for my headaches which were caused by a psychiatrist and his drugs which i was brainwashed for 18 years to make me believe i had a biological "chemical imbalance". Pain Specialists are real BIOLOGICAL Doctors, psychiatrists are NOT.  Respond

13/06/09 4 2 5 5 I was a patient of Dr. Squire's for about 10 years until I left the province. She is very good, and very thorough. My only issue was that every time I went to see her I waited about an hour to get in.  Respond

15/12/08 4 5 5 5 I have been Dr. Squire's patient since she first starting practicing in Burnaby ('89??) I can't imagine having any other DR.!! She is so thorough and knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to ensure that I have the best care. She delivered my son in 1996 and cared for him when he had a Guillaine-Barre in 2001. In 2002, she diagnosed the intense pain in my leg which was so bad that I broke the counter in Emerg by squeezing it and trying to breathe.Under her care, the pain management program she prescibed and supervised was remarkable. I am happy to hear that she will be specializing in Chronic Pain but very sad that she will no longer be my family physician! Dr. Pam truly cares:) My whole family will miss her.

23/04/08 3 2 5 5 Pain Specialist. Thank God for finding Dr Squire. Yes it can be frustrating waiting, but once you're in, she spends as much time as she feel you need, never rushes, asks pertinent questions, listens acutely and offers options, recommendations. She takes on your case with tenacity, a determination to make a change to your pain. I hade to rate punctuality low but that has no relevance to the service she pours on you once in her office. It's just an understanding that you wait, but you get when your turn comes up. (Be prepared for it but it's well worth the wait, I'd suggest calling her assistant first so as to get a timing on when your slot regardless of appointment time, is likely to come up. She is a wonderful doctor, you can see her determination on her face, she'll try different medications until she gets it right for you. NO judgement,no dismissing your pain, she is your advocate. HIGHLY RATE HER AS A PAIN SPECIALIST 5 PLUS!!  Respond

13/04/07 5 5 5 Dr. Squire has been my physician for over 15 years and I have never had more competent treatment from anyone. She listens to all concerns and performs thorough assessments. She also provides more then one solution - if available - and always with a positive outlook. My only regret is that there are not more family doctors like her. everyone deserves this type of care. On a separate note, the office staff is excellent.  Respond
