07/07/14 4 5 5 5 I have spent 7 years seeing various doctors about extreme back pain, starting when I was 13. None of those doctors took me serious, kept saying I spranged my back. I've spent thousands on physio and chiropractors. It wasn't until I could barely walk or sit that I went on my own to see Dr. Banmann. He took my pain serious, and he was the first doctor to suggest a CAT scan!! I was finally diagnosed with a ruptured herniated disc between my L4 and L5. By that time it was too late for any non-surgical interventions. I couldn't walk, or sit. Dr. Banmann is a excellent doctor and still see him to this day. He was sympathic to my needs with my extreme nerve pain, worked well with me, with concern that I lived 4 hours away from winnipeg. I would recommend him to anyone.  Respond

03/09/13 3 3 1 1 Completely disinterested in my pain. Spent a few minutes with me and told me to go to physio and come back in three weeks. Physiotherapist told me it wasn't muscle pain at all, it appeared to be nerve pain coming from my L4. Went to another doctor who ordered an emergency MRI.

15/08/12 5 4 1 1 Saw this doctor a few years ago and he completely disregarded evrything I told him about my symptoms. Ended up seeing him twice and he was useless. Told me I hadn't been in enough pain for a long enough period of time. Now I need surgery. I truly believe this problem with my shoulder could have been taken care of nonsurgically at the beginning of the problem.From now on I'll go to the new sports clinic on Pacific. Less wait time, competent doctors. They saw the problem right away. Said this type of problem can heal on it's own but if it's not better after a year, it should be looked into. That's for ignoring me and allowing me to suffer needlessly for 2 years.  Respond

23/12/10 1 4 1 1 first I have to stop laughing. O.K. I saw this doc for a knee injury, he totally downplayed my injury. Then, on a subsequent visit I overheard him telling a patient in the next room that their problem is nothing to worry about! I thought I was on Seinfeld.  Respond

13/01/09 4 5 5 5 After months of treatment by another doctor I was referred to Dr Banmann as we sought to determine why limited progress was being made. In one appointment he identified the underlying problem that was not readily apparent, arranged for additional tests and set a followup schedule. Service from him was well beyond anything I had expected. In addition he answered all my questions and explained the current damage and its impact. The one issue I have is the difficulty in contacting his clinic as the phone system is a nightmare.  Respond

17/12/07 2 2 2 1 This MD. does not know how to make a proper diagnosis and should have his liscence removed. I am still unable to walk...and it is more than just stress in the thigh muscles. Well now in the deep of winter I am housebound. What was I to expect from a Manitoba MD? Who does not have the time to finish a sentence. These MDs have to be made accountable!!! Better yet close the Medical School of Mantoba. Yes, send in the healthy over paid ,dumb blond to touch your toes.Sheesh!!  Respond
