Dr Valiante took ten hours (instead of the predicted 6) to remove my posterior fossa tumour - leaving behind as little damage as possible. His residents and fellow were exemplary. On return visits Dr. Valiante is engaged and empathetic -- stress after brain cancer, the anxiety of a recurrence is overwhelming but both surgeon and his support staff manage it extraordinarily well.

If I could make the rating 10 out of 5 I would because Dr. Valiante and his staff go above and beyond for his patients! I had brain surgery a few years ago for seizures and it wasn't anticipated to have 100% recovery but so far it seems that's the case (don't want to jinx it) :) He is able to clearly communicate very complicated subject matter into a way that is entirely comprehensible. He shows much compassion for his patients - even though it's his job to cut us open he doesn't forget that this is (hopefully) a once in a lifetime experience for the patients. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, he is extremely smart, an excellent doctor and wonderful person overall! Highly, highly, highly recommend him and Toronto Western Hospital in general.

Having a Brain Tumour surgery Once is complicated enough and gives you a second chance in life! Having a Brain Tumour surgery Twice with after over 20 years of Epileptic Seizures, Chemo Therapies, Countless Medications and and still be able to walk, run, swim, play normal, communicate normal and even look normal is an Advanced Award Winning Science Project from the 21 Century and he and his crew deserve an Eternal Youth and Life as an Award if it was possible with All the Love and Thank You From the Bottom of My Heart!

I had an incredible experience with Dr. Taufik Valiante and his team. He performed a microdiscectomy for a herniated disc Dr. Valiante’s reputation is impeccable and so I trusted him 100% and, without any doubt or concern, I booked the surgery. I remember being wheeled into the OR with such excitement at the thought of waking up without the debilitating pain I had been enduring for so long. An hour after I awoke, the nurses had me walking and I was able to do so unassisted for the first time in 2 months! The next day I began taking short walks which lead to normal daily activities just a week later. Today, I’m 100% and extremely happy with my decision to have this surgery and overwhelmingly grateful to Dr. Valiante for changing my life! He is as lovely as he is talented and no doctor could ever compare on any level. Thank you to the entire team who were easily accessible, friendly and professional. May God bless you for the miracles you perform and the lives you change.

Dr. Taufik Valiante, beyond being an exceptional surgeon, is a caring wonderful person who has made a difference in my life. With Alina Shcharinsky, his amazing first class Nurse Practitioner, and the caring Gae Slater at the front office, my otherwise fearful anxiety ridden situation could not have been made better. I both respect and have great affection for this doctor. I feel blessed to have had him and his amazing team to look after me. While I am still recouperating, and I wish everything was "cured", I am so confident now knowing that Dr. Valiante is looking after me. Thank you Dr. Valiante

He is incredibly talented and caring. On my brain surgery, he even used procedures that take double the time because it vastly reduces leaking of brain fluid. He is so thorough, caring and humble. I have also heard that he is extremely skilled. Among the best in Canada for sure. Maybe the world.

Dr. Valiante sets a standard that all doctor's should work by. He is kind, compassionate and caring. He made both me, and my family feel very comfortable. He took the time to carefully explain things,and answer questions. His bed side manner is impeccable. I could not have been in better hands. My post- surgery results have been amazing.

I was sent to see this dr over one year ago. At that time I was very emotional, and thought he just didn't want to help me. He would not perform surgery on my cervical spine at the time. I now realize after seeing a few other surgeons, that he is by far the best. He was so caring compared to every other surgeon I've seen wish I would have took his advise from the beginning. You are truly an amazing doctor. Anyone that get to see him as their surgeon is blessed. I'm a 31 year old female, and suffer daily due to a car accident. I hope one day to find another doctor like him to help me.dr taufik you a truly an honest doctor.

Saw dr. Valiante for second opinion. What a difference!!!! The first dr. spent 10 min. with me and sent me packing. Dr. Valiante spent more than an hour with me reviewing CD and on exam. He trully cares and has genuine interest in the patient's well being. I feel very lucky that I have found him! I know if we go through with the surgery I am in good hands and if he says I don't need one, that it is trully so. Keep up the good work doctor and God bless you for being a true healer, some other surgeons could learn from your example.
