We are all truly fortunate to have an implant specialist of the caliber of Dr Irinakis in the upper island. I travel over 2 hours every time to see him in Courtenay but it is worth it without question. He and his lovely assistants have treated me with such grace and care, always making sure I'm comfortable after such a tiring long drive for someone my age. Tassos has already placed implants in my mouth which I thoroughly enjoy and I am now looking at my next set with him. Thank you Tasso for your commitment to our community.

Dr. Irinakis is an extraordinary young man and an amazing dentist. His chairside manner is so thoughtful. He is very specific in explaining what will happen and what to expect and, although no dental appointment is fun, he makes the experience as positive as possible. Over and above his expertise and talent, he's totally accessible, returning emails on weekends if you have a question or problem! How great is that! I think he's the best!

I am a new Canadian and very proud of it. I've been to many doctors in the past in Europe and the Middle East and for the last 3 years, in my new country as well. Tassos is simply a doctor who cares and listens. I have not seen this approach before. It is obvious that his Greek upbringing allows him to understand the intricacies of my own ethnicity and he treated me with respect, patience and beautiful manners. I felt like he was treating me like an older family member or loved one. This experience has opened my eyes on what I should expect from doctors who call themselves experts. Thank you Tassos and staff for the experience and Happy New Year to all.

Unbelievably graceful gentleman of a doctor. All these reviews don't do enough justice to the quality of Tasso's character.

Dr. Irinakis is truly the best physician I have ever interacted with. At my appointment he treated me with incredible friendliness and respect. Before beginning his examination, he took time to introduce himself and get to know about me, showing that he knew exactly how to begin building a relationship of trust. Throughout the examination, I was very impressed with the openness of his communication. The way he shared his thought processes gave me confidence in his expertise, educated me, and made me feel like an integral part of the solution. Dr. Irinakis has simultaneously earned another admirer and dramatically increased my expectations for every other doctor I meet.

I have not quite experienced anything like the service I received from Dr Irinakis' office in Courtenay. Such fantastic manners and patient centered care. I'm a specialist myself in the Medical industry on the island and know what I'm talking about. . How refreshing. Thank you Tasso for being as good as you are.
