Very arrogant person. Does not like to be questioned and was not totally forthcoming with medical information, got very defensive with attempts to find answers to our personal situation. As a result, trust and respect were lost for this doctor. His staff do not practice patient advocacy.

Dr. North treated my husband this past year, first I wouuld like to say that the cross is any excellent hosp and for the most part we had as good of an experience as good be expected. Dr. North however was not a good experience. He knew his stuff, I am sure on that as I talked to cancer experts in Canada and the states all through my husbands treatments, so I am confident that he did all he could do, however and I feel this is a HUGE however. He treated my husband and our family lack crap the last day we saw him. He delivered us the news that he did all that he could then left the room to get my husband a refill on his morphine and then never returned. The nurse brought us the refill and we left. We weren't told any info on how long we had, what we needed to arrange, ie. pallative he didnt even shake our hands. My husband suffered needlessly in his final days, his young kids had to watch him suffer which they will always remember. I had to be doctor and nurse and this was not fair!
I have had the misfortune of having cancer twice, but have been very fortunate in the Doctors that I have had at the Cross Cancer institute. Dr. North is one of these Doctors. I have found him to be very knowledgeable and very caring, he was as surprised and upset with my reoccurance as any one of my friends and family. He acted very quickly and mapped out how I was going to be have my treatments and explained everything so that both myself and my wife would understand what was going to happen. When I had questions about the way my body was acting/reacting he was able to explain things to my satisfaction. I for one would not want his job, as dealing with a disease that can be so unpredictable from one patient to another as well as the unpredictable emotions from the patients and their families would be a very difficult job. Being told that you or a family member have cancer is a very scary thing to hear, being told that it is back after almost 10 years is even worse. Kudos to Dr. North
Thank you Dr. North for your smile, your caring way, your bravery in telling us straight the possibilities facing us. When they happened we were not so surprised and were able to cope with it better. I will remember you as a pleasant, listening man who did not take hope away but also did not sugar coat what was happening. Thank you.
Dr. Scott North went above and beyond caring for my husband. His compassion and encouragement for my terminally ill husband as well as for me will always be cherished. The first day we meet Dr. North realized we had not been informed as to the severity of my husband's cancer. He delivered the grim news with much compassion and explained surgery was not an option then explained what courses we may take. He proceeded to give us options, be they experimental etc. and make sure we clearly understood. My husband decided to enter a study which I think gave him another year to enjoy his family. Dr North carefully monitored him thorougly thru this period and when the day came that he had to tell us he could offer no more we truly believed he had done every thing in his knowledge and experise to give us the added time. We will never forget his Hug! KUDOS TO DR. SCOTT NORTH.
Very surprised with the negative comments re: Dr. North. I think because cancer is such a negative experience, people may project a lot of this on their oncologist. I was very impressed with him and all staff at the Cross Cancer. He treated me with respect, answered all my questions - even the questions that were probably pretty dumb. Never waited long for my appointments, and he reviewed the results of my tests with me very quickly. He was positive and didn't pull any punches. This guy cured me of my cancer. I at least owe him a beer.
Dr. North saw my Dad for over two years. He repeatedly forgot to run blood work or PSA tests. We would have to fill out the requisition for the tests and would have to follow for his own medicine. Further, he would forget to continue certain therapy required for Prostate cancer patients, while beginning another treatment. His bedside manner and compassion are absolutely the lowest for a human being. I would not recommend Dr. North to anyone, even if he were the last Cancer specialist on earth. My father had more problems with the doctor than the disease that ultimately killed him. We would ask Dr. North about new trials and drugs coming out and we knew about these before he did. Not much of an expert/specialist if the patient knows about treatments before the doctor. STAY AWAY!
