Ratings for Dr. Shaun Tregoning
Dr. Tregoning is a warm and caring professional. I really felt at ease with him when I was discussing my problems. He was honest and realistic and doesn’t waste your time. I was concerned about my fertility after a year of trying. I had discovered I had a small cyst in my ovaries and thought that it was affecting my chance to conceive. So after examining my results he suggested I wait a few more months till March since he explained that it will sometimes take a bit of time and that my concerns didn’t seem to be affecting my ability to become pregnant. He said if I wasn’t pregnant by March he will suggest more intensive test. Well I didn’t need to go for those tests since I got pregnant in April :)
I went to Dr. Tregoning years ago in his Abbotsford location. He walked in the office before me and told the receptionist that he wouldn't be seeing anyone that day. I had waited months for that appointment. When I did finally see him, his knowledge was impressive and his care was great. Had surgery and ended up in emerg days after. The emerg doctor ordered an ultrasound and I overheard the phone conversation the unit clerk had with Dr. T. about coming in to see me. He would not see me nor give results of my surgery because another doctor had ordered an ultrasound. To say that the next year resulted in several referrals that landed me at BC Womens Hospital and I'm thankful for the care of my OBGYN there and the followup/hysterectomy that followed. Dr. T completely dropped the ball and I can only assume his ego was greatly involved. It's his way or the highway people.
After spending a lot money and going through different tests and treatments we were diagnosed with un-explained infertility. A second opinion and "better" testing resulted in us actually knowing the problem. Now we can focus on a targeted treatment.
Dr. Tregoning is very professional and friendly. Both him and the office manager (Kim) are quick and to the point but they are more than happy to answer all your questions or go over things in more details if you don't understand something or you want clarification. I think they may sometimes forget that their patients don't necessarily know the terms/procedures they talk to you about so don't be afraid to ask questions if something doesn't make sense. I can see how people think Kim is rude, but she's actually quite nice; she's just busy and focused. This office deals with a lot of people going through difficult/stressful situations so I'm sure people aren't always pleasant to deal with. I have been to their office several times and have been quite pleased with them overall.
He kept saying he was going to refer my wife to a specialist in Vancouver but never did. I eventually phoned the specials in Vancouver and made an appoint mirectly after she tried and failed to have him provide the referral. The specialist was surprised he had performed a mesh implant on my wife, knowing that she had previously received vaginal radiation as part of a cancer treatment. The mesh had to be removed and has caused my wife all sorts of problems ever since.
I am a family physician out of the area and have shared a number of difficult patients with Dr. Tregoning. Rarely do I find a specialist who is as helpful keeping the family doctor in the loop, or who goes the extra mile with patients whether they have transgender issues or severe osteoporosis. I think he is a gem. I see a number of negative comments from people dealing with infertility issues, but honestly that is the most stressful and difficult area to specialize in and the very fact he addresses the most challenging areas of his field is impressive.
I went to Shaun a year ago and found out I had a blocked tube and a low progesterone level.he recommended artificial insemination and I got pregnant the first time!! I now have a baby after trying for a year and a half before and it's all thanks to him. I even have my son Shaun's name as his middle name as I'm so thankful for what he has done for me.
