Ratings for Dr. Saul Isserow
Dr Isserow's bedside manner may not be for everyone, as you can see from the mixed reviews. I love him, I appreciate that he is blunt and doesn't sugar coat things, but he is also compassionate and has wonderful foresight. He is extremely busy, often running back and forth between UBC and VGH, which can lead to lateness, but he doesn't mess around when he sees a possible problem, such as coming to see me in the ER when he insisted I be rushed in with chest pains. I am only 29 with a hereditary heart condition, I dread the day he retires.
I have found Dr. Isserow ( I have been seeing him for almost 20 years) to be an excellent doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable and come across as caring. He has provided me with excellent care over the years. I would recommend him to anyone looking for cardiac care.
Excellent physician in every respect.Attentive/ listens/gives concrete advice/ optimistic yet practical. Genuine;y interested in your long term welfare and remembers your concerns between appointments.Superb clinical skills. Support staff needs improvement.
He runs a "private" sector clinic where you come and pay for the visit. Still paying MSP premiums. But it would be okay if he'd really be somewhat helpful. He dismissed my concerns, sent me out of the office still in pain & shortness of breath. I have spent half an hour sitting in a car in front of his luxury office, trying to breath before traveling back home. I was hospitalized to cardiac ward, just couple of days after this visit.
I had a very pleasant experience. Dr. Isserowe was very personable and put me at ease with his Great sense of humour and his advice and care was excellent. He gave me all the time needed to ask questions, and his followup appointment was very soon after the first one. I would rate him as the best there is!
