Ratings for Dr. John Laidlaw
John Laidlaw saved my life in 2006. He operated on my aneurism. Found another, so he clipped both. Within another four weeks I had to go back to hospital to have another three clipped on the other side of my skull. I still have another two which everyone tells me I will have a 50/50 chance of getting through. From 2006-2017, I am still alive. John Laidlaw I love you to bits. What a professional / perceptive individual you are. Barbara Welter
Being Long Distance mother of a patient - I owe my sanity to his PA's Jo & Bek. They answered every query, assisted with information and medical certificates and kept a concerned parent sane. They treated us all as humans and understood our concerns and tried to allay our fears. The Melbourne Private Hospital "Meh?" pretty ordinary. Registrars and residents generally ignored family, information was slow to non existent. Haematologist is a fee charging ghost - never ever present.
Like others, I attribute the fact that I am still here enjoying life with my family, to John Laidlaw and his colleagues who undertook my surgery for a brain aneurysm. I remain eternally grateful for his expertise, dedication and frank communication.
6 years later I heard I was what they call a "ten percenter". Didn't only save my life; preserved my functionality and pretty much my working memory. 18 months to recover my 'personality' (as expressed in sense of humour) and can't track a Melways over page breaks as I used to, but that's nothing. Eternally grateful.
Mr Laidlaw treated me for a disc herniation and he was wonderful. He is knowledgeable and made practical recommendations , as well as being attentive and going out of his way to be helpful and kind. His registrar and administration staff were also excellent and caring.
