Ratings for Dr. David Backstein
Yes, the original wait was long to see this doctor, but it was well worth the wait for the best. Dr. Backstein answered my questions before and after my surgery. Joanna, his assistant was good at running a very very busy office and yes the wait could be long. But still worth it.
The best of the best surgeon should match with hiring or recognize the best staff too. His assistant let me wait for a year as I keep on calling my GP's office for update. On the month for the 1 year wait the assistant eventually never looked at my files (since the assistant called and said she lost the file after the nurse called her or the the doctor for that matter) rejected to see me. They should have told me from the very beginning instead of letting me wait for a while. Not very professional.
A year after having my knee replacement I can't even tell that it is artificial. I can bend it fully and kneel with no problem. The scar is very thin and hardly noticeable. Dr. Backstein is caring and one of the best in his field. I would highly recommend him.
Now 3 1/2 years after my total knee replacement, l'm thrilled to be doing all that l did before. Winter, I ski 5 days a week, summer, l cycle 18 km every morning, hike, snow shoe, kayak and power walk trying to stay in good health. Dr. Backstein, you gave me back my excitment for life, the adventure in my soul and now my husband is working hard to keep up with me. I am 67 years old and loving life in Collingwood. If l need the second knee done one day, guess who l will have doing it. Thanks to doctors like you, life is good. U. R.
