Ratings for Dr. Grant Ayling
I would agree with the previous comment. I as well have been a patient of Dr.Ayling for a number of years and for the most part have found him to be an excellent doctor. However, I am concerned that the very long waits and schedule delays ( in some cases over 2 hours) along with the frenzied admin staff is ultimately going to lead to mishaps. There are just too many patients under his care!!
I love Dr. Ayling. Been with him for 21 years. However the gatekeeper mentality of his office staff and the lousy booking system of walkins (and seeing someone different every time) or calling in the morning for a same day appointment (that rarely happens) has turned me off. I'm hoping with the move to new premises and working in a new clinic setting that things will improve. I really don't like the approach of his staff as if they are doing you a favour and the verbal shaming concerning your ability to fit into last minute scheduling. I long for the days when you could make an appointment and show up on that day and time. Before, when there was something urgent, that is when you called that morning or walked in. For some reason it is felt that scrambling to get an appointment the same day for something you could plan around with a proper appointment made in advance (eg prescriptions, chronic issues requiring followup, specialist appt followup), is good patient service. It is not. With reluctance, if things do not improve with their move I will be seeking a new physician.
Dr. Grant Ayling has been my doctor and now my family doctor since we moved to Vancouver almost 10 years ago. Dr. Ayling is a beautiful man who is experienced, compassionate, patient and attentive. He is a great doctor to both my husband, myself and our daughter. He is worth the wait for sure. Our family would not be intact and flourishing without this amazing person. Thank you Dr. Ayling!
We have had Dr. Ayling as our family doctor for 27 years. He is the doctor for 4 generations of our family! So, he knows our family well! He delivered 2 of our 3 children. Amazing, gentle, kind man and totally professional. His specialist referrals are excellent. His advice his thoughtful and often life-saving. Thank you Dr. Ayling!!!
Dr. Grant Ayling is in a class unto himself. He was recommended to us by the Pilot Midwifery Program back in 1993. I was told he was considered to be the best "midwife " male doctor by the midwifery community. In deed he is. He is highly respected by his colleagues in all areas of medicine. I was sorry to loose him as a when we moved from Vancouver, he wouldn't agree to come with us (yes we asked!) He gave you the time you needed. I never felt rushed and so didn't mind when he ran behind. All his patience just knew someone was like them and needed his time. Anyone that complained were quickly quietened by other more appreciative patience. Rarely, did I ever hear a complaint. We miss him and think of him fondly. It gives me such pleasure to be able to write this rating. He truly is the BEST! God Bless him and his family. Louise Buckley.
