I am leaving Dr. Payne's office now and I felt obliged to send in a comment. He is an extraordinary thyroid cancer doctor. The past 4 months have been a roller coaster. Dr. Payne was always available to help me and reassure me. He took the time to listen to me. He responded to my phone calls. I knew that I had thyroid cancer before seeing him, but did not like my other doctor so I asked around and found Dr. Richard Payne. During the workup for my cancer he discovered that it had spread. He was honest with me and addressed my concerns and took me to surgery without significant delay. My results are back and the cancer is completely gone. Dr. Payne went above and beyond my expectations. He is skilled with a scalpel and at taking care of people with malignant cancer. Thank you for saving my life Dr. Payne....DK

I called to ask questions about an upcoming biopsy and the person who answered the call was not helpful and rude! He is a great doctor but he needs to get people with empathy!

Merci Dr Payne. Vous êtes un médecin de talent. J'ai subit une thyroidectomie avec le Dr Payne et l'opération s'est très bien passée. Je me sens revivre à nouveau maintenant. Il a toujours été rassurant et ouvert à répondre aux questions. Dr Payne, you are the best!

Medecin consciencieux, empathique, très compétent, il répond aux questions, explique patiemment. Une vraie chance de l'avoir comme spécialiste. Il sait avoir le sens de l'humour et dédramatise la situation tout en étant précis et prudent durant le test, si on est nerveux. Un excellent modèle pour les internes.merci! Il me suit depuis 5 ans. Il a tout ma confiance. P'´pon est nerveux.

UNBELIEVABLE doctor ! Pay attention to this: I am neither a fan of Quebec's medical system of caring for its citizens, nor am I impressed by its community of doctors who can't diagnose a simple cold. But this Doctor is an incredible discovery ! He is empathetic, he listens and tries to pick up on ALL the evidence that the patient communicates verbally as well as the tests taken. He is precise and he cares enough not to reach conclusions. Excellent doctor and incredible human. Too bad the McGill and tge Univ.of Montreal Medical Schools don't use Dr.Payne as a "template" on how to be a doctor and how to inter-relate with his patients and his staff.

Best doctor ever. Very caring. I had a partial thyroidectomy which he did an amazing job on and the scar is barely noticeable.
