Ratings for Dr. Fred Gentili
I have hydrocephalus. Gentili is my surgeon but I was referred back to him by ER doctors because I end up in the ER every couple of years with crippling headaches. He told me not to come in for regular checkups (because who ever wanted to establish a baseline anyway). He was not interested in investigating the cause of my headaches. Implied that I don't even need my shunt anymore, but performed no tests to verify. He brushed the headaches off as "some type of migraine" but when I asked if there was anything he could do (prescribe anything, just something to keep on the shelf for when I feel something coming on) he said he couldn't do that because I wasn't experiencing the symptoms that day. So I'm supposed to try to get an appointment with him while I'm having crippling pain? Except that it can take months to get in to see him. He is condescending and completely unhelpful. I will be asking for a referral.
HE is my HERO ! From me he gets one vote for [If there be any] A Shiney Star on Walk of Fame for out-standing Surgeons of the world. He is an Artist, I am a retired Archtect. He operated on me for growth advancing towards petuitary gland on October 19th 2016. I came back with all my faculties intact before that evening. I thank my good fortune having him for this operation, is my Allah to give quick recovery and my family and friends prayers and faith in Dr. Fred Gentili.

This lovely, humble, brilliant, and dedicated neurosurgeon is always professional and completely commuted to his patients and profession. He saved my life and continues to oversee my medical care. I am grateful beyond words - he saved my life.
Dr gentile and team did an excellent job on my recent surgery and follow ups care. Dr gentile was very engaged in the care to ensure I was recovering as I should. His team is very good...his direct medical team was exceptional as is Dr Gentile. My only issue was the clerical teams setting up and coordinating appointments a but a bit of a mess which caused confusion and stress. The doctor himself us exceptional
I can't really complain about the doc! He knows what he's doing. The surgery he performed on me for a pit-tumour went off without a hitch. I found him to be very professional and explained everything - which is not always the case with surgeons. Unfortunately the pituitary clinic at Toronto Western is not the greatest! They've cancelled two of my follow up appointments without telling me, and then altogether forgetting to book the third. I really feel as though I have to be my own advocate in tracking down answers and organizing appointments while dealing with the pituitary clinic. They're so busy that they even warn you that it could be three days until someone gets back to you...
