Ratings for Dr. Wendy Tin
The good is that Dr. Tin is punctual in her office but she is difficult to speak with. I found that she often does not understand what you try to explain and her responses are often difficult to understand. I had both a gastroscopy and colonoscopy both which I have had before but the first time with her. Although I have had to have colonoscopies on a regular basis since the late 90s I have never had as much discomfort. As well the gastroscopy was much worse than the last time. Typically I start getting the meds (relaxing/pain ???) as soon as I get into the procedure room. With Dr Tin it was administered maybe a minute before starting the procedures which didn't give it time to take effect thus it had little benefit and she had little consideration - she was there to do the procedure and it seemed she could care less about my comfort level - no compassion shown. Once I get my results it will be the last time I ever see this Dr (if I have any say).
Dr. Tin is a very nice person and in my experience is far nicer than the average surgeon. Her office runs on time and she is kind and willing to answer any questions you may have. I don't understand some of the negative comments as my experience has been far better.
Will comply with requirement of visiting you once a day while in hospital but it will literally be for a few second and will get testy if you have questions. She does not fully explain the situation and will take inaccurate and incomplete answers just to fill in the blanks on her end of the paperwork. It's just the caliber you get in a small city like Regina - if it is a simple procedure then she might be passable but otherwise try to transfer away from her immediately to save an unwanted headache.
My mother had gall bladder stone and we went to see Dr. Tin, twice . This doctor was downright rude and dismissive. Then I got a friend referred to Dr. Tin, and I went to the appointment to translate for my friend, Dr. Tin behaved the same. So I asked our GP for new referral to other doctor for my mother. I would never trust this doctor with anybody's life.
I have seen Dr Tin Several times and had one major operation and one miner. Dr Tin took the time to talk with and explain things followed up and stayed on top of my healing. If I had problem she got me in right away and checked things out. Called me a night to make sure I was doing well. She is very kind and polite, A true and supporting doctor that cares and nice to talk to. Wish there where more Doctors like her.
