Ratings for Dr. Juanita Crook
It is difficult to capture in words, how Dr. Crook, responds to patient needs. When i was first diagnosed, a friend recommended me to her. I communicated to her via email and she responded promptly ever time and was fully engaged in answering my questions, despite being on the east coast presenting at a conference. Even though her calendar was full, she rearranged her personal scheduled to add time for me at her office within a few days of the email. I researched my diagnoses at every source and she was the most knowledgeable of all I spoke to. If i manage to beat the beast known as cancer, I truly believe it will be entirely due to her efforts!
I can't praise Dr Juanita Crook and her fabulous team enough for their kindness, their encouragement and outstanding professional care. They treat you like family, I cried when my treatments were over because I knew I was going to missed them. Anyone in Dr Crook's & Her team's care at the Kelowna Branch is in the greatest hands ! Thank You Dr. Crook !....I'll see you next check up !
Dr Crook was really great in explaining my situation on Prostate Cancer, she know exactly what treatment I need with the results on biopsy with a high Gleason number. Was very encouraging but was careful not to be too positive on the out come which I appreciated. I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor.
Dr Crook and her team have provided excellent care while addressing my prostate cancer. Her attention to detail is impressive. Even when on a very busy schedule she has always given her time and attention generously so my wife and I fully understand the issues and the treatment options available. She leads her team by example and they are an exceptional team. Her advances with brachytherapy for breast cancer patients is a great step forward. We are very fortunate to have Dr Crook in B.C.!
My Gleason score was a 7 and my PSA just under 10: "intermediate stage". I opted for brachytherapy instead of surgery or external beam radiation with a "brachy" boost and the clinical trial and am convinced that I made the right decision. Because of the Ont. guidelines, I had to pay for the "seeds", needles and the PMH admin charge. That's what $ are for. Insce. covered all but $600. Dr. Crook and her team are my heroes. I felt comfortable and taken care of during the entire process and had minimal "side effects" (now 5 mo. from my "procedure". I am convinced that her careful planning, skilled seed placement and follow up dosimentry led to the success of my treatment. (4 PSA on urology consultation, 7 PSA on biopsy and cancer diagnosis, near 10 PSA on treatment and now 2.5 PSA. She is the best. She was really there for me when I needed help.
