Dr. Stephen Hudson's Ratings
Dr. Hudson is an incredibly kind, caring and competent doctor. He never gave up on us in all of the five years of treatment, and now we are pregnant! The entire staff has always been so attentive - I've always felt like they are part of our family.
In 1991, I became pregnant with my first child. I was unhappy with my care, I was overwight and feeling vunerable. I was recommended to Dr Hudson. I was cared for with kindness, respect and above all the best in medical care. I then conceived my second child in 1994, and the same treatment. Dr Hudson moved after that, and I referred friends in Victoria who needed a brilliant Dr.
My move to Victoria was one I never thought would happen, and my daughter then had issues that needed trusted care. We were being bounced around, she was in pain and I knew who I prayed would help. He not only saw us ( she isn't pregnant, nor having struggles to become pregnant) he took us in and cared for her. She is pain free, and we as a Family owe him the health of our two beautiful children, and the adult care of one he delivered. He is one of two Dr's in my life I have trusted without question. Thanks do not begin to explain how we feel. Perhaps this does in a small way.
I could go on listing all the wonderful things Dr Hudson and his staff have done for us over a long IVF struggle but this comment would become too long and no one would read it. So instead let me say that Dr. Hudson and his staff are the most caring, compassionate and professional people we ever had the luck to meet. I am shocked to see some negative reviews, but can also understand where they may be originating from. IF is a heart-wrenching struggle and there are a lot of bitter feelings along the journey, especially if it is a long journey. All I can tell you that Dr. Hudson kept the faith in us for 6 hard years and never gave up on us. We now have a child thanks to his expertise, care, tenacity and dedication. Words cannot adequately convey the gratitude we will forever have for him and his staff.
Dr.Hudson and his staff are top notch- my husband and I are from Calgary and did a phone consultation with Dr.Hudson for IVF. He was knowledgable, honest, caring and very informative. His staff have been amazing dealing with my annoying phone calls and anxiety over several months, and for that I am very grateful. My husband and I were lucky enough to get pregnant naturally only a month before our IVF was to go ahead, so I cannot say anything about the IVF program, however our experience up to that point was incredible. If we do need to do IVF in the future, we will 100% be coming to Dr.Hudson.
I recently completed a phone consultation with Dr. Hudson. I found him attentive and empathic. He was reassuring to my needs and provided helpful information to me as I consider my next steps in fertility treatment. I'm already at a clinic in Vancouver and set up the call for a fresh set of eyes. Dr. Hudson continued to assist me with questions even though I'm presently not a patient. This is admirable in my eyes. My only regret is that I didn't contact Dr. Hudson earlier in my treatment as I'm sure I would have gone to his clinic when undergoing my first IVF. He comes across as very dedicated and knowledgeable.
Wonderful doctor! I wish I could keep Dr. Hudson as my family doctor. He is by far the most helpful, attentive, and kind doctor I have encountered in Victoria. It did take a long time to get my first appointment, but after that, everything moved extremely quickly. He and his staff listened to my needs and did not push me to do anything I was uncomfortable with. They paid attention to how my body was responding to the medications, and listened to my concerns and questions. The clinical coordinators are available 24/7 to answer questions, which is extraordinary. Yes, Dr. H is very busy, but that's because he works 7 days a week. I have waited longer in walk-in clinics and at my GP's than here. The negative comment about someone's high level of education is ludicrous: my partner and I both hold doctorates, and I don't see how this is relevant to fertility treatment--nobody acted rude or competitive with us. If I need treatment in the future, I will happily come back to Dr. Hudson.
Such a dedicated doctor. I can't believe how hard/long he works. He once sent me an email at 10pm! I'm really impressed with his level of knowledge as well. He was very quick to diagnose my problem and get me on the right track to becoming a mother.
DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE! During some months I was waiting for an appointment with vfc. Finally I came to this "clinic with world class facilities ...". It's not a normal clinic I used to visit before. Few cramped dirty rooms. Hudson was very rude and harmful and asked illegal questions that he cannot ask his patients. Then I was asked to pass some tests and the results of these tests were good so I asked them about next step. After that communication has stalled. They did not answer my emails and so on. Seeing the good results of my tests they understood that I do not need expensive treatment and they will not be able to get a lot of extra money from me. And the high level of my education was the reason of their envy. Also I saw that Hudson can not control his staff. The staff tried to make smiling grimaces but innate malice and envy came out. I will never come back to this nasty place. I can't say I believe in God but hope God will pay hudson back for the lost time and money.
Dr. Hudson is a miracle worker. He is patient, knowledgeable and always takes the time to answer my questions without making me feel like I am pestering him. When I was first contemplating becoming a patient at the clinic, I sent an email with a few general questions and Dr. Hudson himself emailed me back within 24 hours! Imagine that! This man works seven days a week, so naturally he may seem stressed at times (although I personally have not experienced this), but he is obviously not in it for the money. It is clear that he cares about his patients and will do everything in his power to help them to achieve their dreams of becoming parents. My husband and I made the decision to travel across the country to see Dr. Hudson and it was the best decision we could have made. After almost five years of dealing with the heartache of infertility, as well as the incompetence of our local clinic, I finally feel like there is hope that I might one day hold our baby in my arms.
My husband and I were patients of Dr. Hudson and the VFC for almost two years. We did two IUIs and 2 IVFs. Dr. Hudson is a first class, first rate doctor. But he is busy. Very busy. He works weekends, evenings, always. He called me at home twice - the first time to let me know he had applied for financial assistance on our behalf as he knew the cost of the procedures was very hard for us, and the second time to check in after we had achieved our successful pregnancy as he knew I was very stressed out. And yes, there were a couple of times when his stress and exhaustion showed - but we considered it to be a very clear indicator of his compassion and genuine concern for every patient. He was respectful and engaged with our case, and very, very honest with us at every step. We knew it was our responsibility to ask questions, and we did. The staff is amazing, and even if we had not managed to get twins, we would still be thankful for the profound experience we had with VFC.
