Dr. Philippa Brain's Ratings
Dr B is brilliant and so is her partner, Dr Wood. Both were very clinical and didnt address much beyond keeping me pregnant. I had to go elsewhere to find solutions and suggestions for swelling, leg cramps and pregnancy-related stress (I had a great chiro and accuptunrist - Dr Anita Yee in the downtown core). I disliked Dr Wood. He is too impressed with himself. Overall I would recommend Dr. Baranowski for a high risk pregnancy and not Dr Brain/Wood.... But they are all very smart clinicans.
I'm a physician myself and all I can say is, Dr. Brain is the absolute best of the best! I am extremely lucky that she saw me through two pregnancies, delivered one of my daughters and has recently agreed to see me again for my third baby! Her knowledge is excellent, she knows when to resort to evidence-based medicine and when to trust her intuition and expertise. She is kind, tactful and patient. She's down to earth and charismatic. And, as anyone who works in labor and delivery can attest - has excellent surgical skills when needed. Yes, she runs a busy clinic, and yes, sometimes things run behind schedule, but trust me - she's worth the wait!
Dr. Brain was courteous, prompt and very personable. She did fantastic job on two surgical interventions I had with her. My results were 100%. Her treatment of her residents was great and she was really good to the OR staff. I would recommend her in a minute.
As a high risk ob/gyn Dr.Brain is quite knowledgeable and her attitude reflects that, she's not one to accept others onions well. She is not personable at all and has horrible bedside manner. I ended up delivery my baby at 25.5 weeks gestation and when I was asking about pain relief methods during labour she replied, "your baby will be so small it'll just slide right out and you won't even feel a thing"... She seemed to lack compassion and be quite condescending if you questioned anything she said. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone.
Dr. Brain has been my obgyne for almost 10 years. She has performed a minor surgery on me almost that long ago and most recently a full hysterectomy. Yes, it did take several months to get in to see her, but once you're in she takes very good care of you! Her bedside manner is very easygoing and she is both knowdgeable and sympathetic. I have had 2 other obgyne's over the years and neither of them made me feel at ease like Dr. Brain has. She is well worth the wait to get into and you will feel well-cared for once you do!
If you have fibroids, you do not want to see this doctor. Her knowledge is very limited when it comes to fibroids and she is too arrogant to admit it. I went to see her and left her office in tears. Thank God I went to see two other gynecologists who were both excellent. I have since had surgery and everything went excellent. The reason I took time to write this review is to help anyone who has fibroids. If you have fibroids, do not go see this doctor.
