Ratings for Dr. Kenneth Dolynchuk
I was referred by my GP for a few lipomas to be removed. He dismissed my discomfort and concern with them and told me he could lose his license if he did the excision because they weren't covered by MB health, which is not true. He also said if they hurt to 'stop pushing on them'. He seems only concerned with superficial type procedures that make him money and don't take any thought or consideration. Very unprofessional and not someone that stands up to a level of quality healthcare.
I went to Dr. Dolynchuk for surgery on my face to remove a basal cell carcinoma. The site healed as expected. I am pleased that the surgical line is not noticeable, eight months later. I found him to be accommodating; he even took me in early for the initial consultation as I had arrived early, from out of town, for the appointment. Like others, I found him to be pleasant, knowledgeable. and thorough.
I went to Dr. Dolynchuk for a surgery on my face. I read a lot of these reviews and a lot are to do with his attitude. Honestly....do we want a surgeon who has a great bed side manner or one who is good at his job? Obviously both would be the best, but if given the choice....I would much rather the latter. I was brought into my surgery quickly, he went over any possible complications in depth, answered any questions thoroughly, and then he completed the surgery. Afterwards, everything looked great. 5 months later, everything still looks great. It actually exceeded my expectations. He was short, and slightly unpersonable during the consult....but if the work is great in the end, who cares? People need to remember why they're going to a doctor. They're there to fix a medical issue, not be a friend. The receptionist was very accomodating and friendly. I had a very complicated schedule and she made everything work.
My wife when for a nose job and he indicated the this would make a dramatic difference in what he's able to do with it . The result was basically a money grab and to this date she hereself feels no different . His "after the fact "excuse was that he could only remove so much cartridge and this came out after he had a our money . A second opinion confined that wasn't the case at all and more could've been done . Avoid him at all costs
I had my breast augmentation done nearly 3 years ago with Kenneth (475 cc cohesive gel round HP textured implants over the muscle, going from deflated big c- DDD) after a year of extensive research between surgeons and what I wanted I booked a consult with him. His knowledge on things is extremely helpful and I went in with an idea of what I wanted ( large beautiful breasts ) and he helped me make the right decision as to what implant would be best for my body type. Even though people are saying he comes off 'cold' his job is to be a great surgeon not your best friend ! Inform yourself on the procedures you wish to have done and write down the questions you have, he is extremely knowledgable and helpful in helping you make the right decisons for YOU. After 3 year my breasts are BEAUTIFUL and I LOVE THEM (they are not melon looking and most of the time People just think I'm genetically gifted instead of plastic surgery, I went in with an idea of what I wanted 650 CC and he advised against it due to my small grain and I'm so happy I listened !! )not only did the result turn out AMAZING but he also came to my condo to take my drains out the next day and provided me with a thank you card on my check up date. I get compliments on my breasts nearly everyday of the week on how beautiful they are and where I had them done, I would not change a thing. You have to realize that aiming for perfection is not ideal when have PS, but aiming for the best YOUR body can produce is what you should be more concerned about. I have no idea why he's had negative comments because I've been in two other times for consults on skin issues and he's been nothing but informative and extremely helpful. I would recommend him to anyone I know from the experiences I've had ! Thank you Dr.Dolynchuk !!!
Unbelievably rude. Was referred for pilar cyst removal and was told that surgeries like this a frivolous and I would be a drain on the medical system. Then proceeded to talk to me for 20 minutes about medics budgets. Icing on the cake was him telling me to come back when I had a real problem. Only positive was that after reading up on his horrible reviews I didn't end up having surgery through him.
I do not recommend this surgeon. I am a nurse and I should have known better and kick myself. I was in a hurry though and he was the only one available which should have told me something. My friend had a breast reduction by him and it went well but he forgot to remove her "dog ears" the fat left over after you raise the breasts. She got her money back but was disappointed. I had a breast reduction and a tummy tuck. I paid for the 'dog ears" to be removed and stressed it the day of the surgery. he said yes but he didn't and I did not get my money back. He just told me to loose weight and seemed shocked that he didn't do it. He did not give me the full C I wanted and my nipples turn out to the sides. I can barley fill a C cup bra and have to use a padded bra to give me any shape. He did not explain to me before the surgery what I would look like. He told me after. He said" what was I supposed to do with the type of breasts you had?' and stated I didn't need a size C because I was a little woman and I would look funny. Funny thing, he asked me if I was going to loose weight just before that! My scars are very noticeable and I have a deep indent in the middle of my chest on the side of my breast. Now for my belly, it is uncomfortable all the time. My upper belly is so tight most times that is feels like it is going to burst and it rounded out like a barrel. Once again he did not explain to me that this could happen. My lower belly is numb from my belly button to the top of my pubs and goes from hip to hip. Typically they say it is numb in a small area under the belly button but not mine. After 2 years it is still uncomfortable. I didn't die, he did a job but he was not caring enough to really give details or finish his job. I have small breasts now that have toco sides to them that look funny. I had many people tell me after they saw me that I should have went back and had him fix me but I didn't want him to do any more damage. I live in a different province now and should have waited until I did move here but hindsight is 20/20. Please when you go for surgery like this ask questions, take your time, like who is doing your surgery ( they use students too), have them tell you everything and show pictures of their work and what are you to expect with the type of skin you have. It is a huge decision to change your body especially if your not happy with it to begin with. If the good surgeon is a bit more of a wait then wait. You will be happy you did so. I did like his wife and she was very helpful but she was not the one doing the surgery. Good luck!
I was refereed to Dr. Kenneth for a breast reduction and I couldn't be more UN happy about my consult. he made me feel awful about my self and didn't tell me anything I didn't already know (scars, post procedure, etc) Not only did he say I would regret my surgery, he said that it would be hard to find a husband that wouldn't mind the scars. I have horrible back and neck pain, and they are very un proportion to my body size, so to me the scars would be worth it. very unhappy with his personal opinions about how I should feel about my own body. I felt like no one listened to what I had to say or wanted and that they just rushed me in and out the door, trying to schedule me for a liposuction that I didn't even want.
