Ratings for Dr. Paul Gurland
Well, I guess I'm going to have to look at another hospital Maybe one in Oakville because there is NO WAY IN HELLL I'm letting this creep go near me again. This "team" idea they have is so ridiculous and disconnected to begin with. I really don't understand why you can't just have ONE doctor that takes care of you, gets to know you, knows your needs, knows your file, gets you comfortable with them and if you don't really connect with or like them you can switch to another doctor. etc. etc. This Doctor will make one of the happiest times in your life a living he|| and you have NO CHOICE but to keep risking seeing him again for your appointments. It's too bad because I wanted to work Dr Kerry Myckan. But If this guy has anything to do with it I'm forced to go somewhere else. It's a real shame. Get this guy off the team!
Dr. Gurland gave me the prettiest c-section scar as it is almost non-existent and it was my 3rd section! I was in very little to no pain after the meds wore off. He is the doctor you want to see for sections. He was kind and understanding. He took the time to talk with me before, during and after the section. Thank you
Been seeing him for 30 years. He delivered one of my 3 children and prevented me from having an unnecessary c-section that another doc in the high risk clinic wanted. He helped with my fertility issues. He is arrogant, but he knows his stuff. There is no other doctor I would rather have in the room should anything have gone wrong with any of my pregnancys. He does not tolerate incompetence by his staff and is respectful of waiting times. He has a dry sense of humour. His Pap tests and stitching after delivery were amazing. No pain. He listens and answers questions honestly.
I had a miscarriage and ended up needing a D&C. I was terrifed as this was my first surgery. Dr. Gurland took a few minutes before the surgery to address any concerns was very confident, and said all the right things. He is a skilled doctor and I was lucky to have him as my surgeon.
Fantastic, knowledgeable, skilled doctor. The reviews here do not do him justice. I showed up at his clinic for a LEEP procedure (abnormal pap) and by the time this appointment came up I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant. I was terrified. I had lost my mom to cancer. The emotions took the better of me and I broke down before I could say 'hi'. I explained why I was scared. He pulled up a chair, faced me and listened. He offered to deliver my baby and deferred the LEEP until after he was born. I found Dr. Gurland to be very knowledgeable. I did not care that he was not fuzzy and warm. We have families and girlfriends for that. He was compassionate. He was skilled. He followed me regularly at the clinic. He delivered my baby (was on call that night). He followed me for my second pregnancy. Dry sense of humour even in the delivery room. That suits me just fine. People, if you want a hug, go see a friend. If you want a skilled surgeon, he is your guy.
I had my first appointment at 33 weeks with Dr. Gurland yesterday. After reading reviews here I was scared and psyched myself to have the worst experience ever. The wait in the waiting room is brutal (one and half hrs) but Dr. Gurland was professional, answered all the questions, decent, knowledgable physician. He does have dry sense of humor but by no means he was rude or pushy. This is my 2nd C section and the first one was scary experience with emergency c section. I didn't feel rushed by him. He has to move fast, have you seen the waiting room? They can't sit and chat ideally. The wait killed me for one and half hour. Besides that, I have no complaints. Your physician has to be knowledgable, decent and able to give you his time to answer your questions. Dr. Gurland did all that. He congratulated me as he entered the room, introduced himself, he did say the reason I got the first obgyn appt so late in the pregnancy is due to my family doctor sending the referral late, not a fault on their end. He gave me a choice to go for VBAC or scheduled C section, when I asked if we can go home and think about it, "he said you had the entire pregnancy to think about it - so you gotta decide right now, what's it gonna be?" (dry sense of humor), which is fine by me. I smiled at everything so he had to kinda return the smile once in a while :) Its fine people, don't psych yourself going into the appt to have a worst experience and give yourself a headache. I was nervous peeing the whole time. The worst part is the wait time which was one and half hr for me , i was dizzy in the stuffy airless waiting room. Good luck!
