Ratings for Dr. Ian Lo
Could not ask for a better Doctor. He is not only a great surgeon but treats his patients with kindness respect and down to earth. He is not arrogant like commonly seen in Doctors. Wish we had more Dr Lo's in our health care. Let's not forget his front staff Raelyn she is awesome nice to deal with.
Had surgery on my Right shoulder back in Oct to repair a severely torn labrum, Dr. Lo was/has been unbelievable, from his Bed side manners, to his sense of humor, great guy, great Dr. it had been 5+ years of constant pain and I just wanted my quality of life back. 6 months after surgery I can honestly say that I have gotten/getting that quality of life back, no more day to day constant pain. Thanks Dr. Lo and Team.
Its been over 2 years since the second of my operations on my right shoulder. After spending the better part of 8 years in constant pain, Dr. Lo identified and corrected my injuries. About 10 months after the initial surgery, pain came back, however Dr. Lo once again immediately identified and got me in for surgery quickly. Repaired the shoulder and as previously stated, its been 2 years and i am pain free. Prompt service, excellent bed side manner (was very nervous for my second surgery, he came, spoke with me and my wife, and by the end of the conversation had both of us laughing as well as half the operating staff, awesome choice of footwear!) I have been able to start swimming again, and have recently taken up golfing, both of which would have not been possible without the help of Dr. Lo and his staff. Very thankful for the talent of Dr. Lo, and would recommend him to anyone who is having shoulder issues. Thank you Dr. Lo!
Dr. Lo treated me for ruptured supraspinatus and ruptured infraspinatus tendons. His booking staff was helpful and respectful. Ian was on time for all my appointments and was always willing to answer my questions. He took the time to make sure I knew what my surgery involved and made me feel comfortable with his approach. My arm was pretty much useless for doing anything higher than my shoulder and painful. Now, 9 months after surgery, I have a week long golf trip planned. Thank you Dr. Lo!
This surgeon is curt, rude and arrogant. After my surgery, I could not take the Oxycotin he prescribed and when I took them to him to ask how to dispose of these pills, he suggested that I sell them on the street as they are valuable! What? This guy WORKS for WCB, and he refused to take me off work, stating that it was up to WCB and my employer. He could have taken me off work, but he delayed the surgery until it was severe enough perform the more detailed SX so he could make more money. Initially, it was described as an insignificant tear. It turned out to be Major surgery. During one Exam, he did not know what shoulder he was treating, and asked me! After the surgery on my Left shoulder, he forced my arm into the air and tore the ligaments the he had repaired 3 weeks previously. This resulted in a Popeye muscle. This Dr. is greedy, as he delays surgery so the patient suffers longer and the injury becomes worse. Post surgery, he refused to see me because of the damage he did.
Dr. Lo's staff should be ex-staff IMHO. I have now called the office 42 times in the past 3 months (and am still calling in an attempt to discuss apointment times)but his administrative assistant has answered the phone once only. The rest of the time when the phone rang she has let it go to the answering machine which promises a return call within 2 business days.
Dr. Lo did excellent work (3 procedures) on my shoulder. I felt better 1 week post op than I felt pre op In fact when I attended my first post op physiotherapy appointment, 3 (non WCB) physiotherapist's could not believe how much I had recovered in such a short time period. Had WCB (and their favorite providers AKA 'Work Hardening' program) not been later involved in my post op treatment I am certain that outcome would have been even better. Thank you Dr. Lo. You are one of the great ones and a great guy too!
