Ratings for Dr. Garnette Sutherland
I had the privilege of meeting Dr Sutherland, his staff were wonderful, he was very kind, intelligent, he looked at my acoustic Neroma, while he prefers surgery, we together weighed 😳😊 the options, he was warm, polite, and truly one of the nicest surgeons I have ever met. I recommend people write your history down, it helps with those of us who are discombobulated. It helps him as well, as these can be stressful appointments! Who ever thinks he's gruff, I totally disagree with you, he heard my story, and was so compassionate.. I shall put him on my Christmas cookie list !

Dr. Sutherland is fantastic!! When I was diagnosed with a Posterior Fossa Meningioma I was very frightened and concern as my father passed away from a brain tumour in the same area. Dr S quickly put my mind at ease that my type of tumour was a totally different type as my Father's. He and his team removed the tumour and I'm as good as new. I would recommend him to anyone who wants only the best!!
My name is Paul Hutchin and am a patient of Dr. Sutherland, he is my hero! I'd like to put into words what he means to me and what he has done to make my life better, unfortunately I can't find the words to express my gratitude., thank you seems so inadequate. What you do Dr. Sutherland makes a difference!!
I have had two brain surgeries by Dr Sutherland. and I am also confused by the negative comments. Dr Sutherland is very straightforward and tells you exactly how it is, and gives you all the information you need. he has also followed up with me with my difficult case of trigeminal neuralgia. my first operation was to remove a tumor on my auditory nerve, and the second was a microvascular decompression surgery. throughout both surgeries he was heplful, reassuring and very knowledgable. I am still in need of another procedure to again correct my trigeminal neuralgia and he has referred me to another neurosurgeon for a procedure he does not do. I am very blessed to have had and continue to have Dr Surherland in my team. He does appear gruff, as many surgeons do. However, is is very caring and it shows through his work, follow up and everything he does. he does have a sense of humor and that was nice to see. I have read some people do not like his " matter of fact" approach, but I would rather have a doctor who is confident and knowledable then a doctor who is wishy washy and try's to baby me. I am here for a brain surgery not to be. babies. These are serious operations and he approachs them that way. I can not thank him enough for what he continues to do for me. I have rated his staff lower because his secretary can be rude and not helpful. once she would not let me make an appointment with Dr Sutherland because she didn't understand my case. I had to call repeatedly for her to listen. Other then that I continue to trust my life with Dr Sutherland.
Dr. Sutherland is AMAZING. I am confused about the negative comments as truly in my experience he has followed up with me, has provided in-depth explanations about my issue, he answers my questions easily and without any irritation or hurried manner. And he does have a sense of humor, a great one. I have done my research on this doctor and I think he's brilliant, aside from my own experiences. Very matter of fact personality, knows what he's doing and he's straight up with you which I like. I want facts and not to be coddled or pacified. I highly recommend him and will never give him up.
I was very blest to have Dr. Sutherland and his team work on me. They made a terrifing experiance, into a positive one. I never in a million years would have guessed I would be laughing minutes before my crainiodamy to remove my sphendale meningioma. They did a wonderful job and my recovery has been easy. I thank them all for my second chance!
Once you get to know him, he does have a sense of humour! I think he is awesome. I recently saw him regarding a surgery, he didn't sugar coat it, he told me like it is. Which was great,I would rather that than have someone not tell me all the risks. In this case the risk outweighed the benefits. I would trust this man with my life, he is brilliant.
After waiting 9mos for an appt,he did my surgery within a week. He explained everything and showed me the MRI (I am a SLP) so could understand. He sent me home too early and I had a grand mal seizure. He apologized in front of his staff. I would trust him again.
He operated on my mother after a bleeding aneurysm -- put in a shunt. He is direct, clear, and very busy. I wouldn't give him kudos on bedside manner or overly caring -- but when dealing with a surgeon I want someone who is an ace in the operating theatre, bedside manner be damned. The staff on Unit 112 at the Foothills are incredible and you can draw on tremendous knowledge and support from them (nurses, charge nurses, residents, etc). Dr. Sutherland is a total pro at what he does -- opening up people's heads and fixing bad situations. If that's what has to be done -- then he's your guy.
