Dr. Joanne Irwin's Ratings
When I first found out I was pregnant, I interviewed 3 doctors (you could back then) and found Dr. Irwin. She was amazing through a difficult personal time and in 1993 she actually made house calls. If fact she accompanied me to the hospital after seeing her once earlier that day at her office after my water broke. My son, who is now in university still sees her and he gets a kick out of the fact that Dr. Irwin still has his birth announcement card and photo. Seven (7) years later (and now living in the suburb), she delivered my second child. Now my daughter aspires to be a doctor like Dr. Irwin. I still drive all the way from Coquitlam to see Dr. Irwin for my and my daughter's appointments. When referred to specialists, they have always been appropriate and Dr. Irwin always remains and keeps an active role in the continuum of care.
Joanne has been a great GP of mine for the last 15 years or more. She actually listens to what you have to say; never makes you feel like you are wasting her time, and makes every attempt to alleviate your problem. If it is an urgent matter she doesn't hesitate to get you an immediate appointment with a specialist. She has even called me at home in the evening with results from some tests that had been done, rather than leave it to the admin staff. Speaking of staff, there is one who answers the phone who appears to have made it her own goal to block any attempt to get past her to see the Doctors. Very frustrating to at least half a dozen of my friends who also see Dr Irwin. When I moved out of Vancouver 5 years ago I wouldn't even consider looking for another Doctor. Joanne is the best and worth going back into Vancouver for.
I met Dr. Irwin when she did her residency with Dr. Woollard at UBC. She was amazing then and it's good to see that she is so highly respected now. She is truly a cut above and I'm glad to see that she's doing so well.
I am very grateful to have Dr. Irwin as my family doctor over the past 20 years. She is exceptionally friendly, caring, understanding and knowledgeable, and fully committed to the well-being of her patients.
Joanne Irwin is simply the best. I love her all to pieces. She is helpful, empathetic, kind, a good listener and efficient (but you never feel rushed). She also has a wonderful sense of humour. I have had about 5 other gp's over the years, but I will never change doctors now.
