Ratings for Dr. Anthony Vivian
I had an appt but just called to cancel based on these reviews! I will be contacting the college of physicians and surgeons regarding some of the comments about him....scary to say the least. I am not interested in half-assed treatment lol and not interested in butting heads with his reception either ha!. I choose to believe the folks who left ratings less than favorable are venting because they have valid complaints and want other folks to know of their scary experience. Thank you for giving me the heads up to make an informed decision regarding MY LIFE.
After four years of suffering with gastric distress, my family doctor sent me for an cat scan and an appointment with Dr. Vivian. He reviewed the scan and said that I had a stone in my bile duct. This was surprising as I don't have a gall bladder. He set me up with an appointment to have it removed in few weeks. The procedure was virtually pain free and by the following day, I was feeling great. Excellent diagnosis, quick action and wonderful results. Highly recommended.
This doctor doesn't care about any form of life! He's only in it for the quick dollar!!! He completely disregarded a patients request to go without anesthesia, and put him under without any consent!! It sickens me that he is one of the top paid.. let alone still practicing!!!!!
Worst staff I have ever encountered, I think her name was Pam who I dealt with. She was absolutely horrible. Would avoid the office just because of her. Rude and unprofessional, and looks to trashy to be working in a specialist office you wait months to get into.
Billing the taxpayer over $800,000 to $900,000 per year, with his scoping business covering a huge portion of the Fraser Valley, from Abbotsford all the way to Chilliwack and probably more. Literally the most crafty, scheming doctor I have ever encountered - with no regard to human life period. I have no idea why provincial authorities have not yet investigated him for his calculated system of deceit. The unfortunate reality is that all the walk in clinics and doctors for 2+ large cities only refer to him - and only him - a silent but deadly code of referral system that does not allow others to enter into the scoping or biopsy market for reasons only known by a few. Doctor's refuse to look at you without a biopsy from him for anything to do with gastro - and he is your only choice, or so everyone says. Avoid him and pray to god that he one day realizes that his greed drove many patients to death, complicated many lives, and screwed our medical system to his benefit in the entire process.
This doctor should be fired! I worked in dept around him and all he does is troll the hospital to find patients to scope. 1000$ per scope is why he's the valleys highest paid doctor. He's routinely come close to killing numerous ppl due to his greed. Get this doctor out of the system once and for all. He's killed ppl already and will kill more all because he wants money
I really enjoyed Dr. Vivian. I found him to be a bit scatterbrained but for the most part very friendly and helpful! His medical office assistant on the other hand is a whole other story. She was EXTREMELY rude. She treated me ( as well as other patients ahead of me) as if we were wasting her time. When I arrived to check in she had been outside smoking so she didn't even help me right away. Her desk is such a mess its no wonder they have lost referrals before (as I have seen in the other reviews). She was the worst office assistant I have ever had to deal with, I have no idea why a doctor as friendly as Dr. Vivian would employee such a awful individual.
