Just had my tonsils out today. He was very helpful, answered all of my questions, and was very polite when he checked to see how I was doing before and after surgery. There is about a 3 month wait to get an initial appointment with him (I lucked out and got it in 2 months after referral), and after leaving his staff said it would be around 3 months wait. It had been 6 months by the time I got the call from scheduling staff (I know its not the same people that work for him). Any time I called his office to ask if there was any update they would just say "no", wouldn't tell me who I could contact to get a better idea of timing, and seemed very annoyed when I called to change my contact phone number.
What pleasure to have this doctor see me. He is professional and knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the diagnosis. Listens well,and is not in a hurry to shuttle you out the door. I would highly recommend dr. Pillay.
This doc doctor is a total joke I had infected tonnsils for four years because of this total joke of a doctor every time it was here take some flo nase like he make money off the stuff after telling my family doctor to send me to a real specialist I finnaly had my tonnnsils out after losing 60 pounds and feeling in my arms as well as randomly thoreing up and having to leave work because glass were so swollen and painful from fighting infections total prick should not be able to practice medicine
I am suppose to see this doctor to remove my tonsils and based on all these review, which seem pretty negative about him I think I will be consulting with my family doctor to get a different specialist. I did get that impression when I met that seemed superior to me like if u don't like your job why do you do this. Switch change it up do something up happy if u will. Thanks for the reviews. Prayer has helped seek a new answer. I don't think I'd like to be left with left over tonsil not only having to suffer for a longer period of time just to see someone else. Get it all done now.
I was sent to this dr because of swollen tonsils and he looked at me, said I needed a tonsillectomy and put me on the waiting list which was 6-12 months. My family dr check patients files (after they have been to another dr) and asked me to come in so she could see for herself. Thankful she did because it was cancer in one tonsil. Dr o'grady did the surgery 👍 and all is well. Not sure what would have happened if I had just went home to wait. There was no pain at all just swollen tonsils!! Not sure what to think of this dr!!
I have seen Dr. Pillay for 6 years with my sinus who has been able to help me with the best treatment possible to deal with my allergies and sinus maintenance. He has willingly done CT scans over the years and has recently performed surgery due to a blocked passage and cleaned my sinus cavity out. He has been very kind and have quite enjoyed my visits with him as he has been very helpful, polite, and empathetic to my condition with a lot of knowledge to help guide me over the years. He has been one of the best specialists I have ever dealt with for those reasons. I hands down recommend him to others for sound advice and medical treatment. Trust him completely and do remember these are just doctors and they can't always fix something or a condition that is not fixable.
I am a 20 yrs female and had a tonsillectomy with Dr Pillay. He is a very nice man, but I am now 9 days Post surgery and just found out he left half my tonsil hanging beside my uvula. Being in post secondary in Calgary AB and having the surgery over Christmas holiday in Regina SK was the plan but now, It is very difficult to swallow, having ear aches all the time and will be continuing the "soft" food diet until I can find a different ENT to fix this problem and working/education in the health care field is not easy and having a high chance of having tonsillitis with half my tonsil beside the uvula is not an option. I now have to find a new ENT to fix the problem and to find one I trust not to mess this up any farther. I don't recommend him for any tonsillectomy.
My mother has recently seen Dr Pillay due to a internal maxillary bleed which is a life threatening condition, when requesting to ask questions about her further bleeding he advised me that he had already cancelled appointments 2 times because of doing surgery on her and he had spent enough time on her. The only time he felt the need to come and check on her was when she had heavy bleeding. On discharge he didn't feel the need to come and see her or leave any instructions other than call 911 if bleeding started again. I find he can be kind and caring but only when he feels like it, he doesn't seem to be capable of managing his time and figures it is his patient's fault that he is behind. All I can pray for is my mom will never have another bleed and if she does he won't be working that day and receive a different EENT.
