This doctor has shaky hands, no bedside manner and should retire. He performed a procedure during a routine exam without bothering to warn me first! Unbelievable. It felt like I was being assaulted. The nurse apologized profusely, but it wasn't nearly enough to make me go back to him.

I have had Dr. Alan Byrne for many years. He is a brilliant diagnostician and a very caring, compassionate doctor who listens when you talk to him. He practices medicine with hands on examination rather than just listening to patient give symptoms .I can not recommend him highly enough and would put my life in his hands always and my family (which I have many times

Dr Byrne is my hero,he removed a ingrown toe nail and will do the second one in a week.I debated for 30 years as I hate needles but the Dr reassured me he would be fine and it was.His secretary Andrea was very helpful by putting me on the cancellation list which worked out great.Thank you both Andrea and Dr Byrne.

I have a condition called Diverticulitis and Byrne saw me in the hospital, and a follow up at his office. Four months later the symptoms came back and when I called his office on Monday morning his assistant got him on the phone and he urged me to come right into his office., over his lunch break. I believe this Dr to be very committed to his patients and very experienced. Yes he is older, I wouldn't be surprised to see his hands shake (read below) but have not witnessed this. He has yet to operate on me, however when he does I believe he will perform the surgery with care and skill.

I had to get something removed on my skin. Drove down to oakville... 45 min of traffic the whole way. Waited in the outpatient room for an hour. Got dressed in a gown. Waited in another room. He finally showed up tried to find it with his shaky hands and said it's too small to operate on. I then had to pay 10 for parking. Total waste of time, guess he's happy that he got paid to do nothing.

Ok...he was my mother's surgeon. There were issues but somebody else mentioning his hands shaking is troublesome. My mother mentioned the same thing in 2000 when he gave her the results of a test. I agree with the rating from Feb 2014.

Patient beware with this doctor. He gives you no time in 5-minute appointment for questions or answers, just books the surgery. How can a patient sign a consent form when there is no opportunity for answers or discussion on exactly what will happen? Also, his hand shakes when writing, so how can he perform surgery? I agree with others that it is time for this doctor to retire.

Recently, Dr. Alan Byrne saved my life by removing an invasive breast carcinoma. Prior to the surgery, a biopsy was taken painlessly. Waiting time was critical for me. My request to put me on cancellation list was kindly accommodated. As result I waited for surgery only two weeks after receiving my biopsy results. Now I can see that my scars are accurate. I was very nervous but the doctor’s confidence helped me to go through surgery. I am grateful for the doctor’s patience and kindness to me during this difficult time. His assistants were as friendly and helpful as possible.

Seemed very straightforward. Procedure went as planned and on-time. Dr. did not seem to have a lot of time for me (before or after) but I respect efficiency. Any questions I had were answered properly and I feel great (operation was yesterday). Hospital staff were absolutely GREAT!
