Ratings for Dr. Brett Dunlop
Dr. Dunlop made life bearable for me again. I had been hit by a drunk driver several years before and had continual pain and problems since then with walking, sitting and sleeping difficulties and leaving my job of several years because of the pain and discomfort . 10 yrs after the initial accident I was referred to Dr. Dunlop who told me he could help. Surgery was scheduled in just a few weeks and performed by him. Later on the day of the surgery there I was walking unaided down the hall in the hospital and feeling so very good. It has now been 10 yrs. since the surgery and I will never forget how he changed my life. I only wish I had been referred to him sooner - A sincere THANK YOU to Dr. Dunlop and his staff - straight from the heart.
Just one word i have for him. He is a pro. I have l5-s1 nerve damage. After surgery first time i feel free my right leg without crazy cramps. I was really surprised because i was better than before all my life. He did great job and his staff is outstanding and very helpfull. Than you Dr. Dunlop you change my life.
After my family physician sent a referral to Dr. dunlop ' s office, I called to see if I could schedule an appointment. I got an appointment date within 3 week. I live in KW and the wait times here just for a consult is about 1 year!. At my appointment I saw Lisa who was very knowledgeable. She knew right off the bat that I was going to need surgery. I have had back pain on and off for 5+ years with it worsening every time. I had a herniated disc in my lower right back. I could not straighten my leg or put any pressure on it while standing or sleeping. Within 3 weeks I was back for surgery with Dr. Dunlop. The outcome has been life changing. I noticed a difference right after surgery, and am now 3 weeks postop with no pain whatsoever. My dad also had the same surgery performed a few months ago with Dr. Dunlop and his recovery has been remarkable. I highly suggest going to see Lisa and or Dr. Dunlop with any back concerns. So much knowledge!.
I understand the need to give lower back/spine problems time to heal as they so often do. But after almost 6 months of excruciating pain and an MRI showing serious L5 S1 herniation Dr. Dunlop agreed to do decompression surgery . After I woke up from surgery there was immediate relief of pain. It has now been 10days since surgery and I just got back from a 3.7 km hike on the Bruce Trail. I am overjoyed at being able to do this so soon and have been pain free since surgery. I am very grateful to Dr.Dunlop for giving me back quality of life. You are the bestĺ
Well, I too had a similar experience as those posted. Didn't talk to Dr so don't know him this is based on the assessment by physio. She jumped to conclusion when told her my initial surgeon didn't say much about most recent visit she took that as he thought was not surgical didn't seem to matter that he never said that and that he would wait to see the most recent mri that he ordered which looks worse than the one before first surgery. While he was leaving for a year the replacement would have a look but while waiting my gp suggested this guy. According to physio lady all I need is physio. I have spent over 35k on various forms of physio over the last decade some out of pocket up until the most recent issue I was doing well then surgery then I was great for six weeks and the. Downhill again. I have spasmsi fall sometimes when I can't feel my foot or the signal to move just gets losti cant sleep at night due to paintake a lot of drugs but nothing really seems to work. So well done dr
