Ratings for Dr. Ricardo Ribeiro
I was 10 days post op when my incision became infected. The good doctor RIBEIRO made his diagnosis without looking at my leg, or ordering a swab for analysis. His diagnosis was that because I was in the ER on a weekend and INDIGENOUS that obviously I was looking for narcotics. Ì was dismissed by the good Dr with him telling me I came to the wrong Dr ANF laughed. 6 hours later I went to UofA and was in the OR within 3 hours to try to save my leg and had 3 more surgeries in less than 1 week. Ì wonder had I been white would I have had an IV running with antibiotic push..would I still be walking?
He is a kind doctor. I had been having issues of unknown origins and had presented to the emergency room numerous times, but was dismissed and asked to go home. He was the only doctor that didn't dismiss me and sent a referral to neurologist. He is just a kind person and isn't condescending like other doctors who believe they know what you are feeling more than yourself. His demeanour says it all.
I took my father to the Grey Nuns emerg yesterday, where Dr. Ribeiro was the attending doctor. He was just excellent. He was patient listening to my dad's slow speaking and long story. He acted very quickly to get my dad the right diagnostic care. And then he took his time explaining to me and my dad what the diagnosis was and what the treatment options were. When we got to the hospital, my dad was quite anxious. By the time we left, my dad was so calm and felt very well taken care of by the staff at the GNH and especially by Dr. Ribeiro's care.
