Ratings for Dr. Ivan Rebeyka
Dr. Rebeyka operated several times on our son, doing both closed and open heart surgeries for Tetrology of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. He is a man of few words, but is incredibly skilled in his speciality and is responsible for giving our baby, who is now a strapping 17 year old a chance at the kind of longevity he'd never had had without these interventions. How does any parent thank someone whose dedicated their lives to proficiently performing these delicate, life saving and cutting edge operations ? While he humbly, patiently and simply explained how he fixed our son's tiny heart, and came to visit him despite being on holiday, his humility shadows what a genuine super hero he is. We will forever be grateful to him for all he's done for our son. Thank you very much for your dedication and focus Dr. Rebeyka ! Canadians are so fortunate you call this country home.
Dr. Rebeyka operated on my son, who was born with TGA, at 7 days after birth at the Stollery in Edmonton. This gentle man is a hero. Who decides to take a job operating on hearts the size of small strawberries?! He doesn’t say much, but he cares and he does the right thing. Sometimes the docs like to ask you what you do for a living, so they can best understand how to explain procedures to you. I once overheard a man say he was a plumber and Dr. Rebeyka’s response was “ahhh, good. So we basically do the same thing.” Lol fix the plumbing. After surgery, all I could mumble to him was “thank you”. He just put his hand on my shoulder and gave me a little nod. Little did he know I owed him everything in that very moment of my life. He operated on the heart that only my heart really knew. A year later I wrote him a Christmas card and he personally wrote back. Have respect for this man and his time. Do your research, come prepared with questions and ask rather than accuse. Remember, he could give his time and talent to anywhere else in the world. We are lucky to have one of the very best here in Alberta.
Dr. Rebeyka operated on me when I was 18 and then again when I was 26. There is something to be said about a medical professional that not only checks in on his patients Monday through Friday but Saturday as well! Dr. Rebeyka is skillful, humble and kind and I'll forever be indebted to him for giving me two chances at a better quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Rebeyka!!
Dr. Rebeyka, saved our grandson's life when he was born with HRHS. Seven years later our grandson is a happy & healthy young boy and we are extremely grateful for the expertise and kindness of Dr. Rebeyka. He is a brilliant, caring , outstanding surgeon and indeed one of the best in the world. Thank you Dr. Rebeyka.
Dr Ivan Rebeyka is profoundly skilled and we were so blessed to have him perform live-saving surgery for our adopted son in August, 2012. Our son was born with a complicated congenital Heart Defect (large VSD and ASD with a leaky tricuspid valve). He was from a remote area in China, where they were unable to perform this surgery and it was unlikely that he would have lived past 8 years old in the orphanage in Kunming. He is now the healthiest, happiest 5 year old we know .... :) It is difficult to put into words how grateful we are for this doctor's gift and we have heard since that he is one of THE best in the world. Truly remarkable !
