Ratings for Dr. Andre Truter
Punctuality, irrelevant. Bedside manor, just as irrelevant. staff, if I had a business I would want these ladies on my side! Helpfulness, important to have a strong family doctor for any follow up that is needed. Dr. Truter is an talented surgeon and I highly recommend him.
Dr Truter is an excellent doctor. Always concerned with your well being and very attentive to all details. Very good bed side manner and made me feel comfortable with all his decisions. I would recommend him to all my friends and family if the need would arise.
Dr. Truter performed an emergency laparoscopic appendectomy on me recently (Dec 2015). Prior to meeting him in the ER, I had fear based on how routine this procedure most likely is for a general surgeon and that I would not receive much in the way of attentiveness. However, this was not the case. Dr. Truter had excellent conduct during both pre and post op interaction. It was my first surgery and I was quite nervous about the whole thing but Dr. Truter had a reassuring and professional persona that helped me calm down. He also made time to answer my questions and did not cause any feeling of being rushed. The surgery went flawlessly and I am recovering without any complications.
Dr Truter literally saved my life when I collapsed with a previously unsuspected massive bowel tumour. The surgery was top notch, the care couldn't have been better. Unfortunately, the wound infected and a small hernia developed. He didn't want to do a repair on it saying I was too fat and "would ruin his reputation". Now three years later the hernia has developed into a strangulated bowel condition and I face some serious surgery to repair what could have been a simple, small job. My weight hasn't changed in the intervening years, and the doctors I now have don't feel there will be any problems with the upcoming major hernia repair whatsoever. I am split on how I feel about him. On one hand, perfect, on the other.... a total waste.
I was most impressed with the waiting time for a colonoscopy with this doctor. He was very knowledgeable and a very calming influence when I was getting this procedure done, explaining every thing to me before and after the procedure. Would highly recommend him to any-one.
