Ratings for Dr. Robert Feibel
I had my left total hip replacement 3 1/2 years ago and now 2 weeks ago my right hip done. My left is great and I was back playing hockey and already my right hips seems to be recovering faster than my left. Dr. Feibel is great at explaining everything and is very thorough and on top of that makes you feel like he is your friend not just a doctor. My experience with his secretary Nancy has been great when I need info or need a my surgery date to be more accomadating to me she has made it happen. If you get to have Dr. Feibel you will bi in good hands and consider yourself very lucky. June1./2016 Rob Patenaude
Dr. R. J. Fiebel has replaced both my right hip and left knee and everyday I am thankful for my amazing pain free new joints and renewed lease on life. All the staff I met during and after my surgeries were both helpful, caring and professional. Thank you !
I have no comments about Dr Feibel's staff, but I was lucky to find him as my hip surgeon. If you can call breaking your hip fortunate, he was the guy who looked after me. I was in my early 50's and had to go through a break repair and later for a full replacement one the break had healed. Dr F is personable and funny and takes the time to explain things. He is the best. I can't say the same for hovel of a hospital in which he works. The General is pretty dodgy. I had to have the orderly clean someone else's sprayed blood off my phone and had to hobble out to the nurses station on my walker in the middle of the night to get help for my roommate who was suffocating and no one responded to the bell. Dr F is spectacular. My replacement is 10-years old and going strong.
This Doctor is very good, knowledgable, kind, considerate and very professional, unfortunately his receptionist, Nancy leaves the impression she is more important than the Doctor. She can be friendly but also very curt, self important and her attitude detracts from the service offered by this Doctor. Phoning into his receptionist can be a very intimidating experience which I feel should be corrected.
I had a hip replacement and the other hip with pins and screws in 1997. I am doing fine with both hips 15 years later. Dr. Feibel is probably one of the top 3 hip surgeons in Canada. He is very funny and I still remember one morning when he had no more voice because of cheering to much at one Senators playoff game :). I would recommend him at 100 % to anyone who need of a hip replacement.
I severely tore my Achilles' tendon playing softball in late June and a few weeks later, I had surgery at the Ottawa General. Dr. Feibel and his team did a superb job reattaching my tendon and the follow-up appointments were always smooth. He was genuinely interested in hearing how I felt, carefully listened to my concerns and was very kind suggesting tips and tools (wheelchair and bathing chair) to make my life more comfortable during my 12 weeks of recovery. If you are scheduled to have him as your surgeon, you are in great hands. Relax and you'll be 100% soon.
Broke my ankle in '12 and after 9 days of waiting for surgery (March break, apparently no surgeon works) he was able to put back together my lateral malleolus with 6 pins and a plate after the foot being dislocated to the point of my toes facing behind me. In performing the surgery, he identified signs of adult onset Osteoporosis, I am 22. He has since referred for medical testing and even went as far as arranging a surgical check-up in a hospital in Barrie with their chief orthopedic surgeon. He has been very nice to my father and I, extremely accommodating, and generally a pleasure to deal with. He takes a genuine interest in his patients lives and as to the pain management comments, he does like to prescribe medication though if you listen to what he actually says, he always identifies other alternatives. Great surgeon and doctor, I am glad I didnt transfer to a hospital in Mississauga for the surgery.
