Ratings for Dr. Robert Granger
Dr. Granger was my surgeon to remove my esophagus after treatment for a GIST tumour and also installed my feeding tube twice. I found him to be caring , professional and a great surgeon. Highly recommend him! Thank you for being part of an incredible team that saved my life!
Dr Granger is amazing, my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colorectal cancer in September 2015, Dr Granger personally phone the BC Cancer agency as we had not seen an oncologist and was leaving on a 3 week overseas trip, which he ok'd only if we saw an oncologist before we went. We had an appointment scheduled for the following day. He has been extremely supportive, encouraging and caring through out my husbands treatments. He has answered all our question, made himself available via telephone during my husbands hospital stay, even though he was away with his family. All the nurses and interns speak so highly of him. We couldn't have asked for better care, we are still on our journey but having Dr Granger as part of our team gives us the faith that we will have a positive outcome. He is simply the best
Dr. Granger is a very busy man. You are very lucky if he is your surgeon, he is one of the best. People don't realize Complications do happen with any surgery. You can't expect a quick fix. You have to do your part also, he looked after me when I was very sick in RCH.I am very greatful! He is very caring and knows his stuff!
I waited for over 20 hours in the ER at the Royal Columbian with a perforated appendix. The ER staff could not find a bed for me. I had to wait for an available surgeon and/or vacant OR. Dr. Granger came to see me in the ER and told me that he would perform the appendectomy as soon as he could. There were other more critical surgeries ahead of mine. When it was finally my turn to get the surgery, I was almost unconscious from the pain and infection. Dr. Granger was incredible, caring and knowledgeable. I am so fortunate that he was the surgeon on call at the time. His staff found me a hospital bed in the surgical unit. Dr. Granger is a very busy man but after the surgery he came around every morning to my hospital bed to see how I was doing. He answered all of my questions. The first night after surgery, I had some complications due to a pre-existing medical condition. The nurses contacted him in the middle of the night. They told me that he responded right away. When I went for the post surgical follow up appointment a month later at his office, his staff were friendly and Dr. Granger saw me right away. I am so grateful that Dr. Granger was my surgeon. He saved my life. He and his staff took excellent care of me. Dr. Granger is the best.
My mom was admitted in July 2014 to Royal Columbian after many issues at home, what we were told as a blockage in her liver duct which in turn a stint was put in (that caused an infection all through her body and was on antibiotic drips and pills for 6 months) was actually a mass at the head of her pancreas. We were misinterpreted that they had caught it early and it was small. But after 5 weeks in the hospital And a drainage tube later still nothing had been done. She was in and out of RCH for the entire summer and surgery was never discussed with us although we were told it was an option. The entire time she spent there we only seen him once even after explicit talks work staff that we the family want to be present when discussions and decisions are made/happen instead of secretly "checking in" on her at 5-6am. In the end no surgery or further contact was made from Dr. Granger, to me he was a man without a face and didn't seem to care all that much. We spent the last 7 months of her life in and out of hospitals with very little options left. My mom died at home on Jan 22 of this year, 3 months before her 60th birthday. I do feel like more could've been done for her, even though ultimately she was going to pass.
Reading these reviews, I can't help but wonder if there are two different doctors being spoken of. The Dr Granger I know, shared an office space with Dr Turner, his wife manned the front desk not a "staff" of people, and it wasn't really very busy there either... he was always incredibly caring and took a personal interest in our case, always remembering personal details of our lives and asking about us and how things were going on annual follow ups. He saved my husband's life and I will always be grateful for the care he gave us both.
Was sedated for the procedure. Remember waking up a bit and feeling uncomfortable and a bit in pain. After a couple of weeks went to my family doctor to get the results and was really suprised at what Dr. Granger wrote on the results. He wrote I could not stay still and it was difficult for him to do the procedure. That I kept tossing and turning and wanting to turn on my back. He wrote that I denied loosing weight. Hell, I have been trying to lose weight all my life hahaha. My family doctor looked at me like if I were a crybaby. Unfortunately I do not remember a thing and what the heck was I given to behave in such a way? lol. I am really confused.
