Dr. Eric Estey's Ratings
It is nice to see that patients are getting information. I wish some meember of the medical team would have had the concern, integrity and courage to talk to me about the possible nerve damage that has left me with total lack of sensation when urinating and a flow rate one third of normal. Getting misinformation or being told what the norm is does ot help wwhen you will never achieve those levels.
Well... where does one begin? Our story starts off in Calgary where my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer and was denied a radical prostatectomy by both of the urologists we consulted with due his very high PSA. They believed that the surgery would be of no net benefit due to their belief that his cancer was metastatic, though the only evidence proposed was the very high PSA. Try as we might to convince them that the PSA was not a perfect marker for metastatic prostate cancer, especially in light of the clean CT and bone scans, they could not be persuaded. On the advice of friends and family we left Calgary for a second opinionin Edmonton, where we had the great fortune of meeting Dr. Estey. To be clear, he did not sugar coat anything and told us that, based on the prevailing medical wisdom, that it was very likely that my father had metastatic cancer, but that he believed that even if there was a chance that the surgery was curative, due to it being the standard of care for someone with my father's profile, he would perform the surgery. The long story short: Dr. Estey gave us renewed hope in the medical profession. We were treated like human beings and not an elevated PSA score. His kindness, warmth, knowledge, patience, and surgical skill puts him in a class of his own. With the grace of God, I believe that he saved my father's life, however, even if the surgery did not resolve my father's cancer Dr. Estey still lived up to his own standards of providing patients with the best standard of care possible. He was wiling to go the extra mile for father and we are forever in his debt. Dr. Estey is so much more than a surgeon - he is a hero.
One of the very best in his field anywhere in North America and beyond. His experience is vast and his insight and expertise are exceptional. He maintains an excellent rapport within patients, and is very realistic about expectations, options and outcomes. You can have complete confidence in Dr. Estey.
i had a robotic prostate rmovel by dr estay cant say enough of this man , ecelent bedside maonrs. was willing to naswer any queastions i had. he even called me at home in rule alberta to make sure things were going ok. 10 stars from me
I think the last rating should be removed from the site. I had some issues which have been worked out with Dr. Estey over a period of time and perhaps this individual should do the same. I would suggest readers ignor it. Neall Stevens
I have learnt a few things: When booked for surgery ask if he or a resident will be doing the surgery. Ask if he will actually visit you during rounds after surgery and provide useful information. (perhaps get him to sign an agreement to do so). Tell him you prefer that he answers your questions and provides information and that you want to be told about you and not some doctor friend. Get him to commit to having the resident talk to you , if the resident did all or part of your surgery. Make it clear you want to know in advance if the resident will be doing the surgery. If you are over 65 be sure to let him know you would like to be treated with the same respect as patients under 65. Ask if he will be afraid to approach your bedside and if he will be open to giving you the opportunity to ask questions. These are only a few of the things.
Dr Estey is one of the best Urologist I have ever met. He was always helpful to make me made my decision about choosing the best way to deal with an early prostatic cancer. I chose Robotic Prostatectomy and Dr Esty had done it with the highest quality. I was discharged only after 3 days in hospital . Gradually, within a year I have total control on urination and good erection ( of course not like normal). Dr Estey's smile always gives you a hope and the same for his his assistant Juli and his team. The staffs in Royal Alex Univ. Hospital were very nice and professional. I would recommend the great Dr Esty and his team to any one.
