Ratings for Dr. Andre Degreef
In 2011 he gave me my SECOND surgery, I was 21. He brought me into a small dark room in the Trail hospital with a Nurse. Gave me a local anesthetic and did ONE of my breasts then said he would do another the next week. I was young, I didn't know I had other options or that it was wrong. I felt the entire thing, cutting, cauterizing, stitching, everything. He wouldn't stop. I complained the entire time and the Nurse never stopped him. He didn't even move my nipples up. And when I had the left one properly fixed (I got put under) to match later that week, it was completely a different size than the other. Not to mention he left my post-surgery dressings on for 2 weeks which got extremely infected and my current surgeon said hes never seen scarring so bad in his career. They looked like crooked socks with lumps and scars. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.
Dr. De Greef is not only a Plastic surgeon he is a human being. I was sexually assaulted at work 21 years ago.I work in health care. . I still continued working. I gained an enormous amount of weight, and let myself go. I tried to hide myself . Now 22 years later I went to see Dr. De greef. I finally started to have more confidence in myself, lost weight, became more trusting. Dr. De Greef did some cosmetic surgery, as after a large weight loss it was needed. He understood what I went through and did his very best to help me. I also had help from a very helpful therapist. I also saw how helpful he was to all his patients. He was always on call. He was the only plastic surgeon in the area. He helped cancer patients, patients that were burned or in major accidents. The facility relied on him. He loves to help people. He would leave late to go home and on his travel he would be called back. He would turn his car around and come back.I gained all trust in him. Sure I had some complications, but every person's body is different. Some people heal faster than others. If we loose him we will have to go a long way to get plastic or reconstructive help. Some of us are getting older in life and driving to Kelowna may not happen for some people. Driving to Trail is much closer to get very top notch help!!!
horrible experience all around. I am writing this for my mother who underwent a reconstructive surgery resulting from cancer. she has been referred to countless doctors after her reconstruction and no plastic surgeon can figure what he did to make a SECOND reconstruction necessary. she had multiple BOTCHED surgeries says 3 different surgeons and never followed up after her fourth surgery which she had multiple complications, when trying to follow up she then found out he no longer practices (wonder why). 10/10 DO NOT SEE HIM
Dr. De Greef changed my life! I had never met such a caring and empathetic doctor until I met with him. Yes, it did take a while to see him, but my referral never made it to their office because of an error on my Dr's office part. By no means was this Dr. De Greef's offices fault but luckily I followed up and found out my referral hadn't been sent. I decided to pay to see him instead of waiting on a referral list which was extremely beneficial in my situation as I was in pain. I saw him in March 2016 and had my surgery in August 2016. His receptionist was more than friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about my situation and the process. I find it hard to believe anyone would have had a bad experience unless it was their own attitude getting in the way. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, right?! I am living pain free because of Dr. De Greef. I will forever be grateful for his work in our community. Thank you!
I had many surgeries with Dr.A Degreef and yes have had to wait in the office many times . when you do see him , his focus is on you and only you. Would highly recommend him ! As for the staff, she does her job very well . I have called and if they do not have the answer for me , she finds out for me .Her job is not easy and if he is called to the hospital that can not be helped . If it was you or your family in emergency you would want the doctor there not in his office , right ? would highly recommend him .
Hi everyone, my experience of Doctor deGreef has been nothing but professional. Doctor drGreef has always treated like I count, I matter. Yes I have waited hours in his office in order to see him, but when you finally get to walk through his office door to sit down in front of him and start to discuss your personal issues, Doctor deGreef gave me his undivided attention and made me feel calm and relaxed. We need to remember Doctor deGreef is only one person who helps an enormous amount of people day after day after month after year. One person does so much for so many people. His heart is very large and giving and I feel so much gratitude to have met him and trusted him with my body issues. Doctor deGreef took very good care of me and if your patient enough to see him, you will see Doctor deGreef was and is worth your wait. Thank you Doctor deGreef for everything you have done for me. I will always feel nothing but gratitude for having you in my life. Thank you so very, very much... Doctor deGreef's secretary is also only one person who is and has done her very best to accommodate all of Doctor deGreef's patients. Let's be kind to those who do their best to help us get through our own lives. Once again, thank you Doctor deGreef for all you have done for me... Sincerely, Donna
