27/10/12 5 5 5 5 I simply can not say enough about Dr F. He helped me through a very difficult pregnancy, after I had suffered a stillbirth. He was very compassionate caring and knowledgeable. He knew exactly what had happened. Even after my son was born he was there for me, when my husband left us 17 later. I really can't say enough about this man. As a nurse I would consider it a honour to work with such a kind caring doctor. The lower mainland is very lucky to have him.  Respond

03/10/12 5 5 5 5 Truly the best! No question. He assured me through my third pregancy that this time there was nothing to worry about. Even allowed me to have an MRI of my baby and afterwards, showed me the results! I walked out of his office, beaming with happiness. LOVE HIM!

19/06/12 5 5 5 5 Dr F was my Dr for my 2nd pregnancy. I am so very grateful to have had such a wonderful man as my Dr. I had a high risk pregnancy and was extremely anxious about losing my baby. I will spare the details of why I was so worried, but basically I had suffered many miscarriages, had many rounds of fertility treatments and almost lost my first born due to complications. Luckily for my second baby I found Dr F and he was the most kind compassionate Dr I've EVER had and always took time to talk to me and make sure I was mentally OK. He never rushed me and answered all of my questions and always made me feel like everything was going to be OK. He would see me on a moments notice and was so sweet and reassuring. He is caring, down to earth, knowledgeable and funny. I can't say enough about this man, but that I am eternally grateful to have had him as my Dr. He is also the head honcho (perinatologist) at RCH so he has seen many high risk pregnancies and is very qualified Dr.  Respond

28/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Farquharson is THE BEST. I know he saved my son's life; I am sure of it. I had a horrible pregnancy with difficult complications and even though he told me that I shouldn't have high hopes for a good outcome to my pregnancy, he got me through it! A year later, I now have a fantastic and totally healthy son. We were SO LUCKY to have this doctor. We are forever grateful.  Respond

18/03/11 5 5 5 5 He is fantastic! My husband and I are SO IMPRESSED! He genuinely cares, takes all the time you need and really addresses your concerns. He was also able to figure out a problem that no other doctor over the past 15 years ever even came close to determing, he did it with ease and when I told my GP she said... "Oh I never thought of that". Awesome, awesome AWESOME doctor! Can't say enough good things about him and Linda!  Respond

17/02/10 5 5 5 5 I was a patient of Dr. Farquharson during my 2 high risk pregnancies. He is the most outstanding Dr I have ever met, always taking the time to face any concern and really wanting to make a difference in his patients lives. His on time decisions helped to save my childrens and my lives. Koodos to such a great physician!  Respond

23/12/09 5 5 5 5 Dr F was my doctor for 3 high risk pregnancies and reassured me and took the time throughout the pregnancies to minimize my stress & worry. Even after I had the baby and was no longer 'officially his patient' I ended up with mastitis and he called in a prescription for me from Ottawa where he was a speaker at a conference... I couldn't get a hold of my family doctor and yet he cared enough so many different times to go above & beyond. I am continually grateful that we were blessed to have Dr. F - he also understands the emotional side of losing a child since he lost a baby.  Respond

21/12/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Farquarson took the time with each ultrasound I have had in my last two pregnancies and even returned an email I sent him within one day. I have never know a doctor to be so caring and concerned about each individual patient and baby.  Respond

14/12/09 5 5 5 5 Dr F is the greatest, he really cares about his patients and takes all the time you need. My pregnancies didn't always work out the way we had hoped and he was genuinely concerned about my healing process. You are lucky if you get to see this dr.  Respond

25/05/09 5 4 5 5 Both Dr Farquharson and his staff are excellent. He did a number of ultrasounds for me during my twin pregnancy and spent all the time I needed to explain what was going on. He also called me back within hours when I received a worrying ultrasound result from an appointment that he was not present at and reassured me. He is the best!  Respond

24/04/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Farquharson is truly the most sincere and knowledgeable doctor I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am still blown away by his caring nature and the amount of time he used to spend with me at each appointment. When i think back on my life, I think Dr. Farquharson has been a person who helped bring back hope for me, something which cannot be undervalued. If you are able to have Dr. F as a doctor, you will be very lucky, he is a great person.  Respond

18/07/08 5 5 5 5 He delivered two of my children years ago, and was wonderful. To the gentleman below who may or may not have been falsely accused of violence towards his wife; we should be thankful that Dr F cares enough to even become involved in this issue. Most docs run in the other direction when confronted with suspicions of wife abuse. He did the right thing, and if the allegations are not true, be glad that he cared enough about your wife, to ask. That is more important than your bruised ego!  Respond

30/06/08 5 3 1 1 Had a rare opportunity to visit good old Dr. Duncan F. Farquharson with my wife doing a check up on our twins (due in two months). The good doctor was kind enough to corner me, my wife, and another doctor in an office. I assume the other doctor was there simply to act as a witness for the crap that was going to come out of Farquharson's mouth next. He sits us both down then 'wrongly' accuses me a having beaten my wife in the past. I was stunned and he again said he understood I "flashed to anger" and "beat my wife". I was stunned (and obviously angry), and my wife corrected him that he was wrong BUT the damage was done. He said he claimed that is what he understood on one of her previous visits. Then he tried to pass it off as a simple mistake by apologizing - an apology I will not accept. I can't imagine what he is going to get wrong in the delivery room!!!  Respond

28/11/07 5 5 5 5 Dr Farquharson is an excellent fetal medicine specialist. He takes time to answer all questions, is very knowledgeable and even called me to discuss results of an ultrasound that I had some questions on that had been ordered by a different doctor. His staff person is also very helpful.  Respond
