Ratings for Dr. R Russenes
When I went to UBC, Dr. Russenes was my GP. I'm from Alberta and I'm living back there again. Despite it being over a decade, I still think about him on occasion, and how difficult it is to find a man, let alone a Dr. like him. He has an excellent rapport with patients, and is not the money and prestige first, patients second, type of physician like most. He's a kind a professional man, who graduated Alma mater... highly recommended.
Dr Rusenes is the best doctor I've had since my family doctor retired many years ago. I was fortunate to be treated by Dr Rusenes for close to two years. He helped me during numerous health challenges. I always felt better after seeing him. He is currently on leave which is a loss for myself and many others as I know he is missed. Outstanding doctor!
Dr. Russenes is the best Dr. I have encountered. On my first visit to him I must have been in his office for over 30 minutes as he asked many questions about my condition before prescribing anything. I have never had a Dr. take as much time and care! Not only do I trust his treatment, he is a truly lovely and kind person. He is on leave at the moment and I am trying to find someone else to see but am not happy about it and feel no one will be as good!
Dr. Russenes saved my life - his thoroughness, knowledge, tenacity, support & compassion is an example to his profession. He found what other doctors in same walk-in clinic didn't look for or test, inspite of requests for "complete medical". His follow-up, coordination with other specialty clinics, surgeons and doctors is exemplary, especially as in BC there is no case management or medical record database, patients having to coordinate and manage for themselves. No wonder in the busy clinic he is the most popular, and has longest waits. Highly recommended, but he's no longer available!
This doctor was very knowledgeable, very understanding and helped me in away i asked to be helped! validated what happened to me and discussed several treatment options and said he would continue seeing me until he retires his practice in sept 2012.Very understanding.It gives me time to find another dr. like him I hope?
When ever we go to the lonsdale medical clinic, our preference is to see Dr R. He is great with our 2 boys and is through with his examination. He takes what you say seriously and is willing to take swabs or prescribe tests. He doesn't just fob you off and is patient and doesn't rush you through the appointment. One of the reasons we go to the Lonsdale clinic is because Dr R is there.
