Ratings for Dr. Ian Darcel
My Father had a 99/86/65% blockage in his arteries. Darcel told him he had a slight blockage in one arterie after a multitude of test. Dad was adamant that something was wrong so he went to Hamilton General and demanded an angiogram which showed the blockages. Darcel was very lackadaisical and aloof about dads concerns until the report for general was sent to him. Zero rating from us. Fortunately dad got his bypass surgery and is doing well.
A thoughtful and careful physician. My son had heart issues following an infection and I felt very confident that Dr Darcel was being thorough in his assessment and monitoring of the situation. He was patient, took the time to answer all our questions, and respectfully listened to and considered my son's opinions and concerns. You are in good hands with Dr. Darcel.
I had intense chemo and 20 radiation treatments 16 years ago....as well my colesteral is borderline. My visits for the most part are preemptive so nothing major going on. All I ever hope for in a doctor is to be well informed and to not be made to feel annoying, bothersome or stupid for asking questions. Dr. Darcel is very well informed, easily relates that knowlege to me and listens/reponds well to my questions. I feel fortunate that my family doctor referred me to him. The staff is also very good.
Dr. Darcel has been my cardiologist for 20 years since I moved to Burlington. I have a spectacular history of heart surgery following a catastrophic injury in 1977, and Dr. Darcel has continued the high standard of care. When my condition became serious (again) in 1995, he got me a quick referral to megastar surgeon Dr. Tyrone David for my third aortic surgery. When I recently experienced cardiac arrhythmia, he referred me to a specialist in Hamilton for ablation surgery to correct this. A very good Doctor, and unlike others here, I feel that he communicates well (perhaps because I am very knowledgeable about my situation.)
