Ratings for Dr. Kevin Wing
By far, one of the best surgeons & doctors I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with in my 50yrs of life. Privileged and lucky would accurately describe my interactions, and I am extremely hard to please. I met Dr. Wing due to a workplace accident, so full disclosure, my case is WCB related. Any suggestion that Dr. Wing is on the take and has underhanded motives when taking on WCB cases is completely false and shortsighted. One of Dr. Wings main ideologies is "Do No Harm" when it comes to patients. I'm 1000% confident in saying he would not stake his reputation, standing and career on manipulating cases that are WCB related. Let's move on. Dr. Wing is clear, extremely explanatory, concise and answers all the tough questions when asked. There is no sugar coating, no fluff. And you'll always walk away feeling more knowledgable than when you arrived. And this does not mean his bedside manner suffers or he is black and white. Dr. Wing was very clear on percentages of success and failures. The decision was left up to me on whether to proceed, even after being told what would be involved. We had tried everything possible when it came to alternative treatments. We tried and nothing worked as far as physio...etc. I am still post OP and in a cast, and after learning more and being thorough in my research on Dr. Wings background, skills and contributions, I know I've made the right decision to proceed with his team. Do I think the frontline staff at St. Paul's could be warmer and friendlier to deal with when it comes to surgery pre/post care....you bet. Check-In felt like cattle day, and post-op care seems like a production line with absolutely no privacy and loss of dignity. Couldn't count fast enough to just get out, and would not return for treatment of any kind if given the choice. But having said that, if left with no choice in order to recieve treatment from Dr. Wing again, I would. And to me, that's what ultimately matters. His skills, knowledge and training are what will make the difference for the rest of your life, not a rude nurses response to a general question. So you decide. Excellence in treatment, or polite hospital staff. Which do you care about more. Thank you Dr. Wing and entire team for bringing me to the finish line. Much appreciated. M. Swan
First time I ever rated people; I was looking up his Ph number to call for my first appt in many years. This criticism is unwarranted. Nothing negative about my ankle surgery 7 yrs ago at all. Good advice, perfect work, not one tinge of pain since, after years of unbearable pain. Truly a gifted surgeon, he has helped put St Pauls foot and ankle clinic at the top of North America over the years. Interesting to hear him quietly teaching others, e.g. what they were feeling inside my ankle, or explaining how the surgery has evolved with slight changes to perfect it. Back then his nurse/receptionist was busy, curt, to the point, but friendly in the office. Perhaps the old expression "didn't suffer fools gladly". On the outgoing office phone message, she warned you that you would be waiting, that existing patients were the priority.
I seen Kevin Wing today at the Work Safe building. I am so greatful I was able to see him and I am more then happy with our visit. The man knows his stuff and I am finally getting some help. Hes set me up with a plan. I finally feel like someone cares and knows what they are doing. He truly cares about who he sees. The comment about being on work safes side is far from true. I did not get that at all. I feel lucky to have him as my specialist/ surgon and hope that his suggestions and his plan works and he is able to get me back to work. I am.going to do all it takes. First time in two years I feel positive.
I dislocated my knee in February 2006 and Dr. Kevin Wing the orthopedic surgeon on duty at St. Paul's Hospital the night I came into emergency and that was only good or lucky thing to happen that evening. Dr. Wing was able give the knowledge and help me understand what happened and what I needed to do to get better. He had a great bedside manor and I never felt that he did not care about my injury, with many other doctors were the opposite. It was too bad I had to see another orthopedic surgeon because he was the best doctor I have ever had and I have seen a lot with still dealing with the nerve problem that came from that evening.
Had an ankle fusion in June, ankle is more stable now than I can ever remember. Some numbness and swelling still but nothing compared to what it was. Having a second fusion with additional work done this January and would not dream of having another surgeon do the work. Only problem was the wait to get into see him.
I had pain in my ankle . first of all the reception very rude and unreachable! she almost disappeared all the time . you have to put message then and she is going to call you.when ? god knows!anyway. the mri show that the small piece of bone just front of ankle makes pain . so I decided to surgery but now the pain for those part is gone but I have huge pain in my whole ankle! it seems they did unnecessary cleaning for ankle joint and they rubbed inside! I can't walk! I don't have any idea whats level of knowledge ? but I regret the surgery that I did! I supposed to take pain and continuing living. I have family and I have to make ilve for them by my feet.now I am looking for best doctor to help me. any idea?
Kevin is an excellent surgeon he takes the time to explain what's going to happen and is very open as far as rehab and length of recovery,not a lot of touchy feely but that's great it's not what I want from a surgeon.He's an great man with a knife and that is what you really want out of a surgeon isn't it!
