Ratings for Dr. Robert Irvine
One of the best ENTs in Vancouver? I think not. He did not explore any possibilities to assist with my condition, in fact he told me that 'these things happen' and there was no need for me to make a follow up with him. He also told me that this pain could be permanent, which has caused me much anxiety over the past 4 months. It was my dentist who advised me to see an oral surgeon and after an MRI, I finally have an answer and a much needed path to recovery. No thanks to this doctor.
I had a complete thyroidectomy in 2011 by Dr Irvine. I was terrified of having the surgery. He is the nicest doctor I have ever met with. Very calm and patient with answering all my questions and providing me with information to make the surgery decision. I saw him ongoing for several years prior to the surgery. After surgery, at the hospital, the nursing staff had nothing but nice things to say about him. He followed up with me and kept me in the hospital to monitor my Ca levels. My scar has healed very nicely and is barely noticeable. No complications with my surgery. My whole experience with Dr Irvine was great. Carole, his receptionist, was always pleasant and helpful.
Dr Irvine is the most wonderful doctor! Treated like a person rather than a number. Not only is he kind, patient, interested, and attentive, but clearly has a wealth of knowledge. He clearly presented all the possibilities of my condition and options for surgery as well as taking as much time as was necessary to make sure I was at ease and all my questions were answered. After my surgery he kindly checked up on me a couple of times to ensure I was feeling okay. Just visited him today for my follow up and was sad that I won't see him again! Currently a social science student, I'm for the first time in my life entertaining the idea of going into medicine as a result of this positive experience.
Dr. Irvine is great... I felt in very good hands. He explained everything very well, returned my emails, Carol his secretary was very helpful when my husband left my bag in the parkade by accident after my surgery, she got it for us. Exceptional experience! My surgery was successful.
