Ratings for Dr. Lorne Parnes
Went to see him regarding some very mild vertigo/ sensetivity to light and Dr Parnes along with another very pretty doc/assistant😍 (forget what her name was ) answered all my questions and helped me eliminate ears from being the possible root cause to the vision changes/sensetivity to light 👍👍🙂🙏
Yet another successful surgery done by Dr Parnes and my hearing is improving every day. Words cannot express my gratitude for this man. Getting back one of your senses is a beautiful thing. I’ve been going to Dr Parnes for years and he is helpful when he can be of help.
Doctor Parnes has been my ENT for 10+ years. He has always been direct and educational in his communication with me. He has performed many surgeries on my ears. I trust him with my ears, I don’t trust anyone else after seeing the equipment they use. I will always travel to London to see him. He’s worth the 6 hour drive. Thank you Dr Parnes for the great care you’ve always provided me with.
SCDS Round Window Reinforcement. It took 9 months to get in to see him. Once there, he had all testing done and he scheduled the surgery for the following week. A week later, I went back to have the dressings taken out of my ear. I'm thrilled with how everything went. He said the procedure would not correct the hole but would reinforce the canal and reduce my symptoms. That is exactly what happened. All symptoms are either greatly reduced or gone. Staff have always been pleasant, easy to work with to change appointment times. The intern was pleasant and efficient. I would go back in a minute if the other side develops the same problem.
I was rapidly losing my hearing and diagnosed with Otosclerosis. By that time, I had profound hearing loss in bothnears and had been using hearing aids for 7 years. I was referred to Dr. Parnes and travelled to London for a Stapendectomy. Dr. Parnes and his entire team were AMAZING. Dr. Parnes was friendly, succinct and knowledgeable. He explained the procedure and answered all my questions. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Parnes came to talk to me before the procedure and actually did the local anesthetic injection himself. Throughout the procedure he asked explained what he was doing and asked how I was feeling. I was amazed to hear him clearly at the end of the operation. He then packed my ear and explained that I would not be able to hear until the packing was removed in 10 days by my own specialist. I had some sporadic nausea and dizziness but very little pain at all. After 10 days, the packing was removed and I could hear! Dr. Parnes is, in my humble opinion, a miracle worker. I have to wait at least 6 months to have my other ear done and can't wait. Today I rarely use my hearing aid in the ear that has not been operated on... My hearing is normal now in the ear that was repaired. I now know that my partner snores and I love lying in bed at night listening to the birds sing outside my window. If you have hearing loss, I highly recommend getting a referral to Dr. Parnes. This hour long procedure, under local anesthetic has changed my life completely. I look forward to going for a swim and being able to talk to my family while in the water. Jan Adams

Thank you Dr Parnes. Maurice St Onge.
I didn't even bother keeping my appointment. I received an appointment 8 months after my referral. I asked for an earlier one; there wasn't one. I asked to be put on the cancellation list (they don't keep one - this is the first speciality in my experience who does not have a reversion list); I asked whether the Doctor might refer me to a colleague who is less busy so I could see someone without waiting 8 months. I heard a snort on the phone from the secretary. "No, we do not refer." I waited 8 months. TWO WEEKS before the appointment the office leaves a voice mail saying "Clinic hours are cancelled for that day." I am given another appointed THREE MONTHS after that. In all I would have waited 11 months. He is so busy winning awards he does not have time for patients. If this is the best London can do; I am on the 401 heading for Toronto. I asked my GP to refer me to someone else. The secretary on the phone was beyond rude. I explained I was in quite some discomfort. "If it that's bad, we can sedate you." Good heavens. Thank you but no thank you.
