Dr. Dooley is an amazing Neurologist and wonderful human being. My daughter has been seeing him on and off since she was 8 months old; she is now 20 years old and we live in a different province. After recently contacting him after many years he took the time to talk to her and help out with her medical situation once again. You are the best Dr. Dooley, and you made a difference in my daughters outcome. There is only one Dr. in her books and that is you! Thank you E MacDougall
Could not ask for a better neurologist! He has been seeing our son since he was 6 months and he is now 5. He has helped us so much and always, always listens to us as parents. We live an hour away and if there are ever any issues we call or email and we always get a reply that is never longer than a day or two. Most doctors dont do that these days. I cannot say enough good things about this man. He has been a blessing. I never second guess him or his treatment of our sons condition. Would highly recommend him.
I went to see Dr Dooley from when I was an infant until I was probably 10 years old. When I first started seeing him other Doctors told my family that I would never walk or talk properly among other things. Because of his help and devotion I not only walk and talk, I was on sports teams throughout my whole life and I have participated in triathlons and I surf, hike, bike and everything else. I can speak as well as anybody else and have always enjoyed public speaking. I have now graduated from Dalhousie and am happily married. Dr Dooley is an amazing man and neurologist.
Dr. Dooley is an asshold, plain and simple. At first he seems like a lovely man, but he has a very foul temper. I watched him berate his staff in front of a waiting room full of people. The poor girl was in tears. He may know what he's doing but so do a lot of doctors with good personalities and even tempers.
I met Dr. Dooley yesterday in IWK emergency, after numerous tests were done for my one year old. All I can say is that the world is a better place because there are doctors like Dr. Dooley. You can tell he loves what he does, and genuinely cares (and is a doctor full of knowledge). I can't thank him enough for helping me get some answers, and for coming to see my daughter.
My son has been seeing Dr. Dooley since he was 5. He is now 9. He is very knowledgeable, kind, and does not make you feel foolish when you ask questions. He answers e-mails which is fantastic. My son loves going to him since he makes him feel so comfortable and he is one of the most caring doctors we've ever seen.
Sixteen years ago my son was referred to Dr. Dooley with questionable Cp. After extensive testing it was determined that he was Autistic and we were referred to another physician. However,Dr.Dooley continued to see my son on a regular basis and directed us on the road to learning about Autism. He is a brilliant doctor who cares deeply about every child and family he gets involved with. He is kind and soft spoken...a trait which all families need when dealing with difficult times, and his medical knowledge is outstanding! My son graduates this year with an Honors Diploma and has been accepted into an IT Program in college. This was all made possible because Dr. Dooley made an early diagnosis and proper treatment was started immediately. My family owe him a great deal for helping our son be a success story. Any family who gets lucky enough to have Dr. Dooley on their side should know that he can make miracles happen. You are a true blessing to all you meet and care for.
