Ratings for Dr. Sandra McGill
I was specifically looking for a female plastic surgeon in Montreal and I had an amazing experience with Dr. McGill! She is a top notch plastic surgeon and the perfect example of what a physician should be. She listened to my concerns, was very patient and quite obviously an expert in her field. I have seen her 3 times this year…for surgery then follow-up laser treatments. I researched and consulted with some of the other plastic surgeons in Montreal but was extremely happy with my final choice. I was also really impressed with the new clinic and staff. They are very professional. Simply the best and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

Quoi dire de plus que cette chirurgienne est merveilleuse!J'ai eu recours à une augmentation mammaire ce mois-ci et le Dr. Mcgill a été à l'écoute de mes besoins et m'a conseillé sur les décisions à prendre sans me restreindre dans mon choix final! Elle a fait le mieux qu'elle pouvait pour moi. Pour avoir rencontré d'autres chirurgiens avant, je peux vous dire que c'est la premiere que j'ai bien voulu qu'elle m'opère. De plus, l'équipe est super!
I had my breast augmentation surgery with Dr.Mcgill about 2 month ago, and I am extremely satisfied with the experience! It started with my first visit to her clinic, I was obviously scared from going under the knife and besides not sure what size to go for as I wanted something really natural ... She greeted me to her clinic, started the conversation with a very pleasant and confident demeanor, we actually spent about 45 min in the first visit as she went through every thing in comprehensive but yet easy to understand details about how to choose the size, the surgery itself, possible complication and what to expect during recovery phase, and of course long term expectation... Then she scheduled another visit to give time to think through and decide on the implants after. The day of the surgery I presented early in the morning to the clinic, was greeted by the most friendly nurse ever (Vanessa), both OR and recovery nurses were super sweet, caring and considerate and made me really feel more relaxed. I met Dr.McGill again before the surgery as she talked to me to again with her very pleasant way as she was making the marking, after the surgery Vanessa would come and check in the first couple hours post op in a very calm voice making sure I was comfortable and not in pain, and then helped me getting ready once I was. Once I got home I was called in few days by the clinic to make sure every thing was going okay. Overall i would highly recommend Dr.McGill, as i am super impressed and very happy with my experience with this amazing knoweldgable and experienced surgeon, a very friendly staff and above all I am more confident and happy with my physique !
Dr. Sandra Mcgill and her staff are exceptionally professional, attentive and caring. Everyone made me feel comfortable and at ease during the entire process. During my first consultation, and every visit after, Dr. Mcgill was not only considerate of my health history, but that too of my family life. She addressed all my concerns and wishes while taking her time in ensuring that I was fully satisfied. She even took the time, over the phone, to reassure me during a panicked call I had made to the clinic a week prior to surgery. I am extremely happy with the results as well as the experience as a whole. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mcgill.
After lots of research on the best plastic surgeons in the Montreal area, I chose to consult with Dr McGill for a breast lift and tummy tuck. Not only is she incredibly beautiful and smart, but she is the most down to earth, open and generous doctor I have ever met! She put me at ease right away and was extremely detailed about the procedures. I decided to add arm lipo as well. The whole staff, Anna and the medical nurses were just incredible. I felt they all had my best interest at heart and were just as excited as I was to help me get through the recovery period and start seeing my results. There is no doubt in my mind that Dr McGill, a "chick" surgeon, as she put it, has an exceptional vision of a woman's body and what we really want. And she certainly delivered! I am amazed at my results one month post op and they will only get better in the next few months. Dr McGill helped me gain my confidence back, and that is priceless!
Initially I had doubts about what kind of experience I would have in Dr. Mcgill's clinic. I was expecting to hear that I would have to wait, to lose weight, to be a little older, to get the breast reduction I desperately wanted and needed, like others had told me. Dr. Mcgill reassured me that she could perform the surgery despite me being overweight. She understood and was sympathetic to my plight: it's difficult to lose weight when too-large breasts are weighing you down. I walked into the clinic, which was clean and bright and overall a pleasant place, and immediately felt comfortable despite my nervousness. During my first appointment, the consultation, Dr. Mcgill asked questions about my health and my family history, and took the time to explain exactly what would be done during the bilateral breast reduction I was asking about. She showed me examples of breast reductions she has done, answered all our questions, and then some. I left feeling utterly reassured, and when I returned for the surgery itself two months later I was hardly nervous at all. The staff was consistently friendly and open throughout my experience here, spoke to me by name and didn't rush me when I wasn't comfortable. Right before surgery, they made sure I was comfortable, double-checked with me to make sure there would be no issues, and they worked very well and willingly around my allergy/skin reactions to latex. In the operating room, right before I was given the anesthetic, Dr. Mcgill thoroughly double-checked measurements and talked to me in a friendly voice so that I would be comfortable. By the time I was laid down on the operation table, with a heater to keep me warm and things on my legs to keep my blood flowing well, I had been given anesthetic. I woke up two hours later in a bed, comfortably drowsing. When my time in the recovery room post-op was complicated because my vertigo did not mix well with the anesthetic, I was allowed to sit in the cool post-op recovery room for more than five additional hours while I waited for the vertigo to fade enough for me to stand. There was a newer staff member who was still learning the ropes, but still knew what she was doing. She was also very kind and helpful. By the time I left I was feeling much better. While I was in the recovery room the staff regularly checked to make sure I was doing okay, that I had water and crackers to eat. They played liaison with my mother and friend in the clinic, and reassured them while I recovered. During my first post-op follow up, Dr. Mcgill inspected me and told me what I could expect for the next few weeks and months as my body continued to heal. She suggested several ways I could help the scars heal better and reassured me that I was doing well. A "textbook" recovery, so to speak. Anna was very patient, also, with my very worried mother who called several times to make sure the things I was experiencing were normal. Over email and phone, and in her office, Anna was friendly and helpful. The entire staff here is friendly and knows what they are doing. Dr. Mcgill is friendly, professional, sympathetic, and knows exactly how to talk to her patients.
At first I was a little skeptical about breast augmentation, but after having met with Dr. Sandra McGill, I felt reassured. Dr. Mcgill answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease for she goes over, above, and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome for her patients. I am extremely satisfied with the entire experience, from the consultation to post surgery and would strongly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Dr. McGill you are truly a beautiful and wonderful woman and I feel amazing !!!
