Ratings for Dr. Elwood MacMullin
Dr. MacMullin, is the most wonderful doctor I have every experienced. He is a true gentleman, amazing bed side manner, so kind and caring, and meticulous surgeon. It will be a terrible loss to our area when you retire but wish you nothing but happiness.
If a diagnosis of cancer isn't scary enough, putting your life into a surgeon's hands can be even scarier but Dr MacMullin cares and his compassion and expertise shine through in every encounter. If you must place your life in one surgeon's hands, choose this man. His skill, his knowledge and his bedside manner are second to none. Unfortunately, the way to him, is through his secretary and she is a discredit to his service.
My son is awaiting a referral for Dr. MacMullin. He has seen Dr. MacMullin before, but it was decided by him and the family doctor not to proceed at that time with surgery. Dr. MacMullin assured me we'd get it done at a later time. I phone about three months later, same problem needed to be surgically repaired, sooner then later. Spoke to his secretary, she was so rude, said I'd need a new referral. Had my sons specialist send one TWICE, because the secretary claims she never received it. Trying to get my sons surgery done ASAP, but Dr. MacMullin's secretary is a terror to deal with... Love the doctor, though!!!
Very professional, very knowledgeable doctor. Have seen him over the years in regards to myself and family members. Only down fall is his receptionist. She has been rude and not the least bit of compassion. The only way his office can be better is to replace her.
He is by far the best DR I have ever had. He removed my gallbladder a few months ago and I have nothing but great things to say about him. I was unable to eat for month(end of February until my 6 week appointment for ny post op) he is a wealth of knowledge and explains everything very well so you can understand. I lost 50 pounds in total and before my 6 week appointment was in very bad shape, he recognized that I was being givin the wrong medications and that was why I still couldn't eat, he explained why the old ones weren't working and why the new ones would. Since then I've been able to eat and now am on the fast track to recovery.
Dr. Mac Mullin is a fantastic doctor. He is so down to earth and make you feel important not wasting his time. I needed surgery, he explained everything to me and had a very short waiting period. He would crack a little joke to make you feel at ease and not worry about things. I trust this doctor fully and would request him if I ever needed a surgeon.
If you have thyroid problems, this is the only man on Cape Breton Island I would allow to operate on me. I saw Dr. Hafidh who does significantly less thyroid surgeries but had more boasting as opposed to credentials. Dr MacMullin has been doing this for 25 years and I trust him with my life, without question. He is a gentleman and a fine surgeon.
