Ratings for Dr. Terry Fellows
After numerous visits to the ER with an ongoing problem I met Dr. Fellows. He was calm and actually listened to me when I gave my history. He was thorough and pin pointed what the problem could be and sent recommendations to my family Doctor. For the first time in many visits I wasn't made to feel I was taking up a bed needed by someone else. After discharge I came home feeling something was going to be done as Dr. Fellows made me feel he cared and was concerned. Thank you Dr. Fellows.
I have been dealing with really bad edema in both my legs, for the past several months. After realizing that it was not getting better, I finally forced myself to go to the ER at Richmond General. When I got there, I had a lot of anxiety, as I am not a fan of hospitals, especially when I have to go alone. After a shorter than normal wait, considering it was a Saturday night, I was brought over to a bed, and told to change, and was given blood work. When the Dr. Fellows came in, I told him what I thought was wrong. When he looked at my legs, he confirmed that I was correct, and started me on IV antibiotics. He also told me that I should take time off from work, and when I heard that, I had a bit of an emotional breakdown and started crying. When I finally pulled myself together, and apologized for crying, he asked me why I was saying sorry and asked if there was anything he could do to help. In all my life, I have never had any doctor actually ask me what they could do to help, not even my family doctor. He is the kindest, most compassionate doctor I have ever met. I wish all doctors were like him!!!
Amazing doctor. Went to Richmond ER last week. He was very thorough and knowledgable and wouldn't leave the hospital until he could give me all the answers to what was going on with me. I was sad to see he didn't have a private practice as we all need a fantastic family doctor like him. Thank you so much.
My father went to the ER yesterday. Dr. Fellows could tell right away that I was extremely concerned about my father. Not only is Dr. Fellows very thoughtful and patient, but he also treated our family with sincerity, compassion and professionalism. I am very grateful for a doctor like Dr. Fellows. Thank you.

Went to Richmond ER couple days ago. Dr Fellows listened and appreciated to my and my wife's concerns regarding my lungs problems. He explained clearly about my situation and called my family doctor not just about the result of the test done but also informing him about the urge of me seeing a lung specialist.
Last month I fell ill suddenly at the airport and was transported to the ER at Richmond Hospital. Dr Fellows examined me and oversaw my treatment for several hours, then was ready to release me when I seemed more stable. Unfortunately, there were no hotel rooms in Vancouver that Saturday afternoon--we checked on 83 hotels. Dr Fellows offered to put us up, my wife and I, at his home so I could remain under his care overnight, and we accepted. Later that evening he recognized that I was worse and was developing sepsis. He drove us back across the city to the ER and re-admitted me. That amazing and beyond-the-call of duty care meant that my sepsis did not progress tragically, as it so often does. Cultures were taken, antibiotics administered, and within 48 hours my symptoms began to abate. I was released the following Thursday, able to travel safely. Now, almost 4 weeks later I am still recovering my strength and very grateful that he quickly recognized a potentially fatal condition before it caused permanent damage. I will always be grateful for his calm manner and insightful experience.
My mom was rushed to emergency last week and was so very ill. It was a horrible admittance into the ER and she was ignored by nurses for the first 20 minutes, because someone was dying from a heart attack so the Doctor was busy. I just wanted someone to make her comfortable as I was holding her in my arms and she was vomiting, fainting, shaking and sweating. Finally, after I threw a temper tantrum, nurses came and got her (they saw a woman first, who was complaining of neck pain from a car accident a week prior, which is why I was so annoyed). She was put in a bed and waited for the Doctor (which was better than my holding her in my arms) As upset as I was at the staff at the time, it all went away once we met Dr. Terry Fellows. He asked her detailed questions, was patient, had a kind bed side manner...in fact I told him that he didn't seem "doctor like" at all because of how sweet he was. He was extremely thorough and checked on her several times. He got a diagnosis right away and she was put upstairs in a semi-private room as she was going to have to have surgery. If I was injured and sick, and scared as patients often are, it would be a blessing to have Dr. Fellows as the light at the end of the tunnel. Sure enough, I found out he is from Nova Scotia (I could tell by how he spoke), which also explained a lot because was also cool as heck As frantic as the ER was, he stayed calm and focused on my mom. He is amazing.
