Dr. Nancy Van Laeken's Ratings
I went to Nancy after losing a bunch of weight . My breasts were very "loose" and I wanted them to be higher, smaller and younger looking. ( I have huge breasts ). I found the work to be good...not amazing but I am happy I suppose, but her bed side manor is HORRIBLE. When I went to have my stitches out , I was scared as I am not a good healer, and she made my husband hold my hands behind my back so I could not flinch. I understand that me moving was hard for her, but she was in such a rush to take them out and gave me no time to breathe in between some stitches for even a second. I was so upset and scared that I actually fainted, and the very nice nurse came and helped me and Nancy just ...left.....Her work I would say is a 8/10 and her bed side manor, a 0. Always rushing you out and then after I paid $16,000 for my surgery, I was given tape and some lotion to put on under my bra and was asked to pay $75 for it at the front desk. You can buy these things at shoppers for $10.
I have had two breast surgeries with Dr. Van Laeken. The breast augmentation went well but I wasn't fully satisfied with the results because of the way it stretched out my breasts. I went back to have it fixed and it was great for about 6 months and then got worse than it was before! I went back and told I wasn't happy and she said she wanted me to be happy so offered to do it again for the same price as I had already paid. $20k later I felt like this is just what I am stuck with so I left it at that. I will be doing it again soon but will use another doctor. But, she is a very kind woman and made me feel very comfortable. Maybe my expectations are too high. I know she is very well known for her fantastic work.
Dr Van Laeken is fantastic. She is one of the best surgeons in Canada. Reading responses such as she is only after the money is so far from the truth. The majority of her work is done in reconstructive surgery for breast cancer. She also risks her life each year and goes to 3rd world countries to operate on disfigured women (no charge). She is professional and wonderfully competent.
My experience has been VERY disappointing and frustrating. She did a terrible job to me and clearly does not know what she is doing. My breasts are still misshapen and are now 2 different sizes in different places. Seven years later, this result still bothers me. Her avoidance of answering questions is her way of not telling the truth. She is very cold and short and spent less than five minutes talking to me and did not listen to any of my concerns. Please be very careful if you're planning to choose her. Can't seem to put DR. in front of her name. Furthermore, be careful because she bookmark most of her unsuccessful patients. It is very obvious she only cares about the money that comes from her boob jobs and tummy tucks and not those with true medical ailments. . All she can see is $$$$ signs. She could care less about you if you aren't a paying customer. I wouldn't recommend her to my worst enemy.
Please, please, refrain from using Nancy VanLaeken. Can't seem to put DR. in front of her name. She did a terrible job. Be careful who you choose. Her avoidance of answering questions is her way of not telling the truth. I had to have both my procedures done over by her, and was still not happy. I even had to pay the second time!!! She clearly does not know what she is doing. I think she is using her clients as practice, but she just doesn't get it. All she can see is $$$$ signs. I had another doctor fix her mess, but once the damage is done it is really hard to correct. I hope you check out more doctors.
I had Breast Augmentation with Dr. Van Laeken and am so pleased with the result. She was very kind and knowledgeable throughout the whole experience. She was originally recommended to me by a friend of mine that was diagnosed with breast cancer and had gone through reconstruction. She told me that Dr. Van Laeken is very passionate and caring and that “she knows her boobs!”. Before I decided on Dr. Van Laeken I went to two other doctors for consultations because I wanted to make sure that the doctor I chose was the best fit for me. I’m glad I went with Dr. Van Laeken and a big thanks to her office staff!
Please be very careful if you're planning to choose this doctor. She really screwed up my right breast(implant). It looks horrible and she wanted me to pay for her mistake. I would not take my chances with her again and I am now on this site to find a REAL doctor to fix her mess.
I was made aware of her long wait list prior to my MSP covered breast reduction, the staff is very up front about that. Dr Van Laeken was great doesn't draw anything out and she is quick and knowledgeable. My boobs look flipping fantastic and she was WELL worth the wait. I don't know why anyone would say anything bad about her. She cares about her pt's she just has a lot of them. I would do it all over again. I had zero problems not even a bruise post op and I love my new breasts. Amazing woman amazing results!!
Do not bother with this doctor if you are a MSP patient!! She could care less about you if you aren't a paying customer. When I met her for my first consultation at the hospital, I got a really bad first impression. She was very cold and short with us. She spent less than five minutes talking to us. Still, I decided to go ahead and book the surgery. I was put on a waiting list for the surgery and was told the wait would be one year, which is ridiculous. It has now been a year and a half and I am still waiting with no end in sight. I have had other health issues that need addressing by her, and have contacted her office multiple times. I am always given one excuse after another. They promise they will speak to the doctor and get back to me, and then never do. It is very obvious she only cares about the money that comes from her boob jobs and tummy tucks and not those with true medical ailments. My experience has been VERY disappointing and frustrating.
I am telling you this woman is an artist! She may run behind sometimes and my appointment had to be changed due to an emergency surgery but my husband and I are super thrilled with the service we received from her as well as her office staff. They are always so friendly & caring. I would would never hesitate to refer my friends & family to her. So happy to have my pre-baby body back! Thank you Dr. Van Laeken.
