Ratings for Dr. Barry Breger
Dr Breger est devenue mon médecin il y a près de 15 ans alors que ma santé se détériorait et que j’avais de plus en plus de difficultés à être productive à chaque jour. Le médecin que je voyais avant était dépassé par mes symptômes et les tests médicaux qui étaient dans la normale. Le Dr Breger s’intéresse aux causes possibles et à l’environnement pollué dans lequel on vit. Il prend le temps de poser les questions que d’autres ne prennent pas. On sent qu’il suit un arbre décisionnel logique. Il prend le temps d’écouter vos réponses à ses questions. Il vous implique dans le processus de traitement en vous encourageant à vous instruire par des lectures afin de prendre des décisions éclairées sur votre santé et de solidifier de saines habitudes de vie.
I've been a patient for almost ten years - a move precipitated by four successive endocrinologists who would initially tell I obviously needed hormones but then tests would come in and I was "normal". Its not normal to get out of bed, brush your teeth and require a five hour nap to recuperate. There are those for whom "normal" does not fit within the therapeutic range and Dr. Breger recognizes. That "therapeutic range is a moving target witness the multiple changes to it over the past twenty years. So who's to know that this" normal" range will change once again and we outliers will finally be with that? I have a courageous doctor who treats the patient, not the tests, and sometimes medicine is fluid Thankfully, I had him as a doctor.
In 49 years of life and for as far as I can remember, Dr Breger is the one and only doctor who takes the time in doing active listening and who involves patient in his plan of treatment. He is teaching us to take our health in our hands and encourage prevention. He follow the Hippocratic oath not the pharmaceutical hippocrit oath. Like him very much!
He saved my life, and eight years later continues to be my partner in health. I've sent many friends and the best comment she gave me was "thank you, I can now grow old without fear". I am great flu to have such a doctor who keeps up with developments in the health feed , not through pharma reps but through real research.
I'm 55 and I've been thru the gambit w/hospital MD's and got no where. I saw Barry and he started me on HRT. Hormone replacement therapy. The difference is night and day. All my labs were in range but at the bottom. Regular endocrinologists would say I'm fine, but they don't listen to symptoms. Barry listens to symptoms and says labs don't tell the whole story. BTW, $140. for 45 min appoint is not bad for private consultation. I now have more energy, I think clearly as my cognitive skills have improved immensely. I'm much calmer and stress has disappeared. I feel like I did 20 years ago. Yes he likes to talk but if you read between the lines well, he's trying to get something across to you. I chose him because I thought I had thyroid issues... however he treated all my hormones. Now life is great. Thanks Barry!
I find Dr Breger to be excellent. My greatest reason for giving him five stars is that he listens. I am highly informed about my own thyroid and adrenal issues (I have HAD to be - my experience of thyroid treatment by doctors before Dr Breger ranged from inadequate and uninformed to arrogant and downright damaging)and I was looking for a doctor who took my own views and experience into account. This means a doctor who was prepared to look at the clinical picture of my health instead of just my lab numbers, and actually work with me and my body. As far as I can see, if you are open to trying natural thyroid replacement, there is no other doctor in Montreal who will help you. It's a whole mindset with doctors - do they do what's best for their patients, or do they stick to narrow treatment protocols whether they work or not? So only if your own mindset is towards taking responsibility for your health, educating yourself and finding a good medical partner, Dr Breger is for you.
I went to Dr. Breger out of desperation for what I suspected were thyroid issues. I agree with what others have said here: he's a nice guy, but he doesn't seem to know much, and yes, be prepared to listen to his stories while the clock ticks away. Seeing him is extremely costly, especially when you take into account the medications and supplements. I would not recommend him except for basic diet counselling, which you can get with many other naturopaths for MUCH cheaper.
