02/05/14 5 5 5 5 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.

19/10/13 5 5 5 5 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.

11/10/13 3 5 4 3 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.  Respond

20/08/13 5 5 5 5 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.  Respond

23/09/11 5 5 5 5 After seeing numerous plastic surgeons in the toronto area(one of which i waited nearly a year to see for a consultation) my last stop was Dr.Ford. I was refered by my sister who insisted along with numerous nursing staff at lakeridge health oshawa that he is the best and that he is very picky. I thought great, what could be better then that as im sure we would all love our plastic surgeons to not only be skilled but picky about their work. Upon meeting he displayed qualities i have not yet seen in another plastic surgeon. I did not feel rushed and he was kind in answering all of my questions, even called me when i left the office because i had further questions. I booked with him immediately. I have previously had 2 breast augmentations and one tummy tuck( non of which were performed by Dr.Ford)so i guess you could say i somewhat know the demenor of other surgeons. I am going in for my surgery next week, i will keep you posted as to my results.

23/03/11 3 4 5 5 Dr. Ford is absolutely amazing. He is knowledgeable, considerate and very patient. He has performed a couple of cosmetic surgeries for me and I have been thrilled with the results. My only concern would be with his new scheduling person, Melony, who always seems to find ways to make it difficult to schedule appointments with him. Catherine was always so helpful but Melony is pretty self-important. Once you get through any problems she throws at you, Dr. Ford is a gem. His work is amazing and he really listens to any concerns. I would highly recommend him to anyone.  See Responses

20/12/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Derek Ford did my breast reduction surgery in October and I am extremely happy with the results. From the first appointment to the surgery he has been excellent. He is very good at what he does and my scaring is hardly visable. Melanie who works in the office was very nice and always answered anything I asked when I would call. I would recommend Dr Derek Ford to anyone who was needing some kind of plastic surgery. My own family Dr could not believe what a wonderful job he did and how good the scarring is.  Respond

09/09/10 4 5 5 5 Dr. Ford performed an upper bleph 1 yr ago and did an amazing job. I previously suffered from "dry eye" in my right eye due to a repaired detached retina 7 yrs previous & was concerned that it would be worsened by an upper bleph. Due to Dr. Ford's wonderful surgical skills I have had absolutely no problems with my right eye.I now look years younger thanks to Dr. Ford. He is very kind and very honest.  Respond

05/05/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Ford was amazing. He did a wonderful job on a tummy tuck/hernia repair that I had 7 months ago. He is professional, and exact. I have had 2 other surgeries to fix my hernias, and nothing compares to the job that he did (and another surgeon). In his office he is generally on time. He was patient with me even when I was scared of him checking the scar after. Dr. Ford, I cannot thank-you enough, my stomach was once ****ed, and you made it pretty again!  Respond

23/02/10 4 4 5 5 I had surgery in November and Dr. Ford is the BEST. He made me feel right at home and I wasn't nervous at all. He made sure I knew and understood everything he was going to do during the surgery and how to care for the incisions afterwards. I never hesitated to call his office either, they were great as well. I am truly happy to say I had a life changing surgery and I feel amazing. Dr. Ford is the VERY best surgeon there is. I would recomend him to anyone.  Respond

25/07/09 5 4 5 5 Dr.Ford is simply the most amazing surgeon I've ever met! I was quite nervous going in to see him, but after talking with his secretary, who was kind and warm and lovely, and then hearing the other patients in the waiting room not only agree with everything she said, but rave about him, I felt a lot better. As soon as I walked in his office, he introduced himself with a big smile and a handshake, and said "Hi, I'm Derek" . I immediately felt comfortable and at ease. His care from the office visit to the operating room to follow up appointments was unceasing. He even gave me his cell phone number in case I had any problems after hours! Who does that??? He is one of a kind, without doubt. My girlfriends are amazed at the beautiful work he did, and now they all want him as their surgeon as well. I feel lucky and blessed to have found such an angel of a surgeon. God Bless you Dr. Ford!  Respond

24/03/09 5 4 5 5 Had a tumour removed from my foot and he did a wonderful job. He takes time with his patients and I think nobody should complain about this, he cares about you and he is not in rush just to have more done in less time.  Respond

04/03/09 5 3 4 5 Dr. Ford has a mannerism that I believe most people would appreciate. He is nice, takes time to answer all questions, does not make one feel hurried, and is knowledgeable about his areas of expertise. My only complaint is that he is consistently late for follow-up appointments, but that may be because he takes his time with incoming patients. I have been to two other plastic surgeons for work and have met a number of others and Dr. Ford is both the most highly skilled and the nicest.  Respond

29/01/09 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing several doctors regularly due to breast cancer. All the doctors care for their work and honestly, only Dr. Ford also cares for the patients. I have lengthy procedures and see him many times in the past 3 months. He is consistently patient, gentle and professional even at his most stressful days. He always makes sure that I feel fine and have my questions answered before we finish the visit. I notice that he is very respectful to his co-workers too. I couldn't imagine how I would get through this emotional journey without his support.  Respond

28/01/09 3 4 1 5 At first I thought that he was very interested in fixing my health concerns and had assured me he could fix it. Most of my surgery was covered except $2600 of it which I didn't mind paying if it made my health better but once he was finished the surgery and recieved payment he became very cold and quite ruff with my follow up proceeders. I am still having health problems and out I'm also poorer. Unless you have no other health issues and you just want a nip and tuck sure go for it but if you have a real health issue that needs serious care don't count on him to help. Out for the buck.!!!!  Respond

30/12/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Ford performed a surgery on my daughter for melanoma...he was kind, professional and extremely thorough. He made sure we understood everything before the surgery and did a lovely job....Any surgery is frightening and when it involves a potentially life threatening condition like cancer, it's even more so...this doctor was great to us and even though we hopefully will never have to see him again...fingers crossed the cancer is gone...we would be comforted to have him if we needed to.  Respond

09/10/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Ford is the best plastic surgeon I know. I work in one of the hospitals where he does surgery and I know several of the surgeons. I have seen their work first hand and Dr Ford is simply the best. (And the nicest:))  Respond

19/08/08 5 5 5 5 Dr Ford-wow what a great doc. I had surgery with him and the follow ups were great-very pleased with the results. The time he spends to ensure you are comfortable and all the little things he does to make sure you are at ease are great. I never felt rushed or like I was a number. Many doctors especially surgeons make you fell like they are watch watching and just want to rush through and get it over and move on. He took the time to explain things and make sure I understood and was o.k step by step. Great staff as well could not ask for more  Respond

09/07/08 5 5 5 5 There is not enough I can say about Dr Ford. He is simply one of the best, most caring people out there. He truly cares about what he does and the people he does it for. I had surgery that took about 8 hours. The recovery was tough, but he was there for me and my husband. He even gave us his cell phone number for any questions/concerns. He is truly one of a kind. Anyone that has him for a doc, is very lucky.  Respond

11/04/07 4 5 5 Dr. Ford is very thorough. My sister had the same procedure performed by a different surgeon who didn't take the same precautions as Dr. Ford and she exhibits the results he knew how to avoid. He is extremely ethical, never rushes things and makes sure patients are comfortable with everything.  Respond
