Ratings for Dr. Lloyd MacK
Dr. Mack and his staff were so supportive and understanding to all my questions (and all the different times I asked). Natalie would always respond back to my emails within 24 hours and provide all the answers I was looking for. I feel very privileged to have had Dr. Mack as my surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much.
It's unfortunate that Dr. Mack's reputation as an expert, compassionate oncologist is being tainted by his secretary, Natalie. See comments from Feb. 25th, 2015, which someone else wrote. I realize he's very busy due to his TBCC administrative career and not at all accessible to patients anymore. I guess I should have learned the rules of his clinical practise. Don't call him, call your Family Doc. Natalie has completely turned me off attending his Advanced GI Clinic, as waiting another year for an MRI/CT is way too long where cancer is concerned..
The care I received from Dr. Mack and the staff at Foothills was excellent. He was considerate of my family's needs, answered all of our questions, and prepared us well for my surgery, with calm, considerate demeanour. His staff, Natalie especially, were excellent scheduling regular check ups. I recently had my final appointment with him, and he said he never wants to see me again. I feel the same way :) That being said, if you have to see him, Dr. Mack is excellent, and you are in good hands with him. I cannot recommend Dr. Mack highly enough. I'd like to add the care I received from all the nurses at Foothills after my surgery was also excellent. I had excellent care the entire time I spent there.
Dr. Mack is awesome and his assistant, Natalie, fabulous. A great team. Dr. Mack is about 40+. He's an educator to nurses, med. students and patients, as well as a mentor to medical residents. He's a compassionate surgery oncologist, and all round charming and kind gentleman. Appreciate how lucky you are to have a referral with him or see him for an emergency general surgery consult. He and Natalie will work together to answer your questions. I did not have a complex case, but he still treated me as if I was a cancer patient, with great care and attention. Thank you so much. Love you both.
Dr Mack is fantastic! He did a biopsy of my son's neck and took tissue out while he was awake! He was really nervous, but Dr Mack used his sense of humor to make my son feel very comfortable. A week later we got the news my son had cancer - well, at least the dr we saw said it, but we didn't know if we should believe him he told us the new so badly! Anyway... I came home and called Dr Mack's office 2 days before Christmas. The office said it was closed till the new year, but I left a long message and received a call back the next day. The woman said she would let Dr Mack know -- he called us personally and spoke to both my son and I. SO impressed!!! I would highly recommend him!
This man is amazing. I was going through a lot on the day of my biopsy, and he was incredibly kind and understanding. He talked through the entire procedure and kept me informed on what he was doing. In that short time he asked a lot of Qs to get to know me, and even pointed out some personal strengths of mine. I really liked that. I left the surgery room feeling positive, strong and confident. If you ever need a surgical oncologist, he is the person to go to.
I was diagnosed with colon cancer. My surgery took place in Calgary's Foothills Hosp. Dr. Mack was kind and made me feel comfortable. He answered all my questions. It's 2 months since surgery and all is normal and working. Thank you Dr. Mack!!
Dr Mack is very good at what he does. His right hand nurse on the other hand gives you the run around. He waists a lot of time and time is health. Looking at getting another referral as I've waisted enough time on this nurse. No longer worth my time.
Dr. Mack is the most lovely and well rounded health care professional I have ever met. He is kind and considerate and goes out of his way to care for (and advocate for) his patients. He is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled as a surgeon and I can't imagine being in better hands. He always takes the time to explain things to me and is a natural teacher and healer. I highly recommend Dr. Mack.
