Ratings for Dr. Dan Borschneck
Dr. Borschneck operated on me June 24,2017 and again August 9 2017. He brought through a huge a frightening surgery. He was kind, respectful, caring and one of the best surgeons i have had the honor of knowing. I worked in a hospital and knew a lot of surgeons so i knew i had struck gold with this lovely man. he put me together twice. The second time because i fell and he had to fix me, which he did quickly with kindness and understanding. I am doing really well and I had to write this to say thank you to my Miracle Man as i called him. I would never go to anyone else and i feel safe knowing he is always there to look after me. Love you lots Dan from JoAnne Emery Peterborough Ontario
Found this doctor dismissive on >1 visit; he impeded the correct diagnosis by telling us what he thought it "looked like" without getting more evidence from tests or referring us to another specialist. If we hadn't gotten a second opinion my child would still be suffering.
I have had 13 surgeries on my back from 1992-March 2015. Six of these were done in Ottawa in the 90's. The last seven have all been performed at KGH by Dr. Borschneck from March of 2011 - March of 2015. From 2007 - March of 2011 I could only get around with a walker, and I was about 45* prone. When I arrived at Emergency I had the good fortune to be seen by Dr. Borschneck who at that time said he saw no reason why I couldn't get standing straight. Dr. Borschneck's optimism gave me renewed hope. After spending years bent over using a walker and after 6 surgeries performed by Dr. Borschneck over the last four years. Today I'm almost able to stand upright and get around very well with just a walking stick. Hats off to you Dr. Borschneck and your staff and students. You have given this 50 plus year old man a renewed vigour for life. Thank you!
Deft hands! Emergency surgery to repair a burst fracture in my lumbar without causing any secondary injuries, despite the inherent risk to spinal cord, et al. I believe that if I hadn't been sent to Dr Borschneck my recovery would not be as quick or complete.
My daughter has been "Dr Dan's" patient for the past 7 years. He has performed 5 surgeries on her legs to help straighten tibial and femoral over rotations. You will see his resident first, they will confer and then you will see Dr. Dan. He has always been approachable, punctual, willing to listen and to explain what is happening/ going to happen, and not at all pompous or condescending . His receptionist has always promptly returned calls and booked us a.s.a.p in the clinic when needed. His bedside manner is exceptional, always compassionate, yet a bit tough when my daughter needed a push to move after surgery. I suffer from severe back pain and am truly sorry Dr Dan is a children's surgeon as I am very reluctant to go to Dr Yach after seeing all the reviews!
In June 2013 I was admitted with a burst vertebrae; Dr. Borschneck was fantastic in all of our dealings with him. He carefully explained the options given the initial diagnosis of a potential tumour and helped us through the decision making process. After a seven hour surgery and now over a year later, the results are amazing with no real residual problems related to the spinal surgery. Dr. Borschneck has done follow up visits paying close attention to any concerns and has alleviated any concerns. He can be fully trusted and inspires confidence in the profession.
