Dr. Andrew Maitland's Ratings
Dr Maitland and his staff at Foothills were both professional, efficient and friendly. We were kept in the loop every step of the procedure, and enjoy full quality of life after open heart surgery to repair mitral valve, Future medical students under Dr Maitland are privileged to learn from such a human, warm and caring man.
Dr. Maitland is brilliant. My father wouldn't be around if it wasn't for him. The staff, unfortunately, is condescending and rude - or at least one of the staff members, anyway. It has been years since my father has seen Dr. Maitland and I just received a call from his receptionist to book a follow up appointment. I didn't remember which office she was calling from because my dad has several doctors he goes to see. I simply asked what the follow up appointment was for and she laughed and repeated it was a follow up appointment. Her attitude afterwards was snobby and abrupt. Why is it so hard to find courteous, friendly staff in the health world these days? People have become so jaded and unhappy. This woman should find another job. She would be a great parole officer or debt collector.
I definitely felt in safe hands with Dr. Maitland. A busy surgeon, he took the time to explain the details of the operation and was more than helpful in responding to any inquiries I had. I consider myself lucky to have been referred to him and would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Maitland was and is an awesome heart surgeon. He took the time to listen to my questions and explained things to me in everyday language that I could understand. He put a mechanical heart valve in me in June 2014 and the scar left behind is small and hardly noticeable. I thank my lucky stars I was sent to him, and would recommend him to everyone. Keep up the great work Doc!!!
Dr. Maitland has saved my life on three occasions (I am 80). He is a terrific surgeon. I've (as a patient) observed him teaching interns: he's a fine teacher. He is totally honest about what's up with you as a patient. And he has a very nice, dry, sense of humour. If you have him as a surgeon you are very fortunate.
Dr. Maitland is an exceptional surgeon. He repaired my heart valve using a relatively new, less invasive procedure, and I now feel wonderful. I consider myself lucky to have been referred to him for my surgery. Without exaggeration, his incredible skill has extended my life and given me back my quality of life.
Talented as hell. I am seeing him for after-care from aortic surgery 16 years past. He knew my surgeon and knew my procedure intimately, having done thousands himself. This is a busy man, but he took time to talk, explain and get everything right. I am not sure why people think doctors are there to cuddle, they are there to fix things, sometimes after people having abused their body terribly.
Ok, so heres the scoop on Dr.Maitland. Hes a cardiac genius. If you want the best, you found him. My scar is beautiful and my aortic valve has been repaired. I am very grateful. His assistant Kendra is very helpful and responds quickly. Now for the downside, hes a complete Jerk. My first meeting went very well, and I rather enjoyed his blunt straight forward nature. However, after surgery, he told me that if I wanted to go home then I should suck it up. I was having extreme muscular pain, and he couldnt care at all. In fact , I dont think he cares for his patients afterwards at all. We will see how he is at our first post op meeting. People say he lacks bedside manner, in my opinion, he doesnt have one at all. So with that said, my heart matters more the my feelins so I am grateful for his talented hands. But this man could learn some compassion, heaven forbid if it were him with the medical issues....
Dr. Maitland repaired my mitral valve and during surgery found a pinhole leak in my heart chamber. He repaired both successfully. When he came out of surgery to tell my wife, she said he's going to get a big hug. He frowned and said he doesn't do hugs. She said too bad and hugged the hell out of him. He smiled. So he does care, and deeply about his patients. Dr. Maitland probably would not be the most outwardly happy/smiley/personally engaging Dr. in Calgary but he is the most skilled cardiac surgeon you can find. My cardiologist said he's the guy to use if she wanted the most skilled doctor to work on her family, but don't get all caught up over the personality thing. We didn't, and have the greatest respect for this outstanding Dr. If you want the best, and can get him, you won't be sorry. Three cheers for Dr. Andrew Maitland!!!!!!!!!!!
