Dr. D.T. Ford's Ratings
I underwent facelift surgery with Dr Ford several months ago. He was very detailed in his care both before and after surgery. The staff in his office were professional and accommodating. I have gained further confidence with my cleaner, refreshed appearance.
I am currently in the process of breast/nipple reconstruction with Dr. Derek Ford. This has been a lengthy process, but as I am now truly seeing the results I wanted, I am very happy. Dr. Ford is very caring, gentle, and is very knowlegeable. I feel very comfortable in his care, and will recommend him to anyone looking for plastic surgery; whether it be elective or not. Top notch, professional care. And handsome to boot! :-)
He received nothing more than counsel from CPSO for what you are about to read. After 15 months of reporting excruciating pain post augmentation, he finally diagnosed a tight pocket on my right side. Get this, implant's with a sandpaper like surface under the muscle, grating and causing more damage every time I moved and he won't help. After being rude and belittling me for over a year, he finally diagnosed it then have me me to pay to fix it. Next, my abdoplasty. I had a life threatening complication requiring emergency surgery, 3 units of blood and I was off work for 4+ months. The resulting scar was 2"x3" and looked like a third degree burn. Did he fix it? No!!! He terminated my care after I complained to him about my care and his and his staffs demeanor towards me. Not too mention the run around I was getting I demanded my notes and was shocked too see most were dictated after my care was terminated, his OR report dictated 10 months post-op, and most were lies. He actually falsified my notes and altered my consent to cover up for the fact he failed to do the lipo that was on my consent. The CPSO didn't seem too care. Despite providing the documentation, they just covered it up. I have paid well over $27K too fix his mess. He has a separate, single rating on here, you will need to google it, with similar concerns from another patient. He will continue to do this kind of thing and get away with it unless his behaviour is reported to the CPSO every time he does it.
From the very beginning to the end of breast reduction procedure, Dr. Ford and his staff were incredible. Dr. Ford is a very professional and soft spoken man who's work is as close to perfection as it gets. Very little scarring and I am only 4 weeks after surgery and both breasts appear to be very even in size. I can't thank Dr. Ford and his staff enough for making this such a positive experience in all aspects. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Ford to anyone who asks me about the procedure or indicates an interest in plastic surgery. Why settle for less when you can have the best and that is Dr. Ford!
Who can say anything bad about the handsome and talented Dr. Ford !!!! He is simply the best Plastic Surgeon. I am a RN, and very picky...after all we see the good and the bad. He is meticulous, professional, kind, calm, and need I mention this is his GIFT. I have just had a Breast Reduction, Lipo to inner thighs and hips. I, have the breasts of an 18 yr old. I had a Tummy Tuck, with Muscle Repair by Dr. Ford 8 yrs ago and I continue to have abs of steel. I have sent many patients to him and he has given them the utmost in results. I have seen Dr. Ford weekly, and he has given me the best post op care. Catherine, his assistant is also professional, kind, and frankly soothing. You will be so happy you choose him. I trust this man with my Life.
I have recently completed bilateral breast reconstruction followed by nipple and areola reconstruction. My efforts to find the best surgeon led me to Dr. Ford. My surgical results are amazing and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Ford always took the time to give me the information I needed to make the best decisions for me. He listened to me about my expected outcomes and this was valued. His office staff is efficent, effective and reachable and when I had questions or conerns, they would communicate promptly with him and get back to me with answers. When needed, he would call me back directly. After 1 surgery just before a holiday, he provided me with his pager number in case I needed to reach him (which I did and he called back within minutes). These best practices demonstrate Dr. Ford's compassion and dedication to patient care. I will always be grateful to Dr. Ford for making me look and feel 'whole' again. This is an amazing doctor and surgeon who cares.
Went to Derek Ford for a Ptosis repair on my left eye. He advised that I required the ptosis repair on both eyes recommended blepharoplasty on both eyes. 1 week after first surgery my left eye ptosis returned. He agreed to repeat the ptosis about 5 months later - same result. When I went back he blamed the contour of my eye and said if I wanted him to repeat the surgery I would have to on a waiting list at Lakeridge Hospital as "I had to pay for use of the OR and staff for the 2nd surgery myself" (darn right as you didn't get it right the first time"). 2 years later and I went to an Occular Plastic Surgeon who has completed the Ptosis repair without any issues. Dr Ford should have been more forthright with me and told me that he this was not his specialty - instead he did the blepharoplasty which left me with a large fat deposit beneath 1 eye and having to have spend a further $2200 to repair Ptosis. Would not recommend Ford for this type of surgery at all.
Over the past year or so, Dr. Ford has performed two fairly extensive facial procedures for me. Dr. Ford is meticulous in his work and does a very nice job. He is very accessible both before and after surgery and is very knowledgeable and patient regarding any questions or concerns you might have. Highly recommend.
