Papillary thyroid cancer and full thyrodectomy in 2013. I requested this doctor as 2nd opinion per friend suggestion. Excellent surgeon and clean incision and minimal scar. Everyone comments what a great job he did. Very thorough and explains all and answers questions. Great staff and Secretary. Received a great resource binder before surgery that was very helpful. Would highly recommend.

I recently underwent a full thyroidectomy and a neck dissection due to papillary thyroid cancer. I initially saw another doctor but did not feel comfortable with the suggested method of surgery which would require both vertical and horizontal incisions. I therefore I asked my family doctor to refer me to Dr. Gilbert. Within a day of referral, I was given an appointment for the following week. On my first visit with Dr. Gilbert and Dr. McMullen I was immediately at ease. Dr. Gilbert's skill and expertise were evident within my first few minutes with him. He offered to repeat the biopsy so that I would feel more comfortable moving forward, which is something I very much appreciated - I did not wish to feel unsure about having surgery. Once I decided to move ahead with surgery, it was scheduled within about a month. My surgery went perfectly well and I only one very clean horizontal incision. It is now three weeks later and the incision is healing so well that people don't even notice it. I can only imagine that in a few months, I will not even notice it. I recommend Dr. Gilbert and his whole team, including Dr. McMullen without reservation. My experience with them and the hospital was nothing short of spectacular. Dr. Gilbert was happy to answer all of my questions, made me feel at ease and had a great sense of humour. Dr. McMullen also has a wonderful bedside manner - she is kind, warm, funny and very knowledgable. I'm very grateful to have been cared for by such outstanding doctors.

Dr Gilbert is AMAZING!!!Hands down the best dr out there! He literally saved my partners life. When my partner was diagnosed with cancer we were told in Vancouver that he was unable to have surgery because it would be too complex and that my partner "wouldn't want to live afterwards". After searching for more experienced Drs I came across dr Gilbert! My partner sent him all of his clinical notes and within some time we spoke to dr Gilbert. We went to Toronto and dr Gilbert performed my partners complex surgery. The surgery was a total of 16 hours long. Dr Gilbert completely reconstructed my partners face and gave us so much hope! From the moment we met him we never felt nervous or worried. It has now Been 1 month post surgery and my partners doing well!!! :) if you are referred to dr Gilbert you are in GREAT hands!!!! Such a skilled, humble & genuine Doctor! God bless.

I was diagnosed with with what was determined to be T3 high-grade papillary thyroid carcinoma of the right thyroid lobe in February 2015. I was referred to Dr. Gilbert by my family doctor and was scheduled for appointment based on results of an ultrasound and biopsy. I had a successful surgery in April for a complete thyroidectomy. A second surgery was required due to a hematoma. The cause was due to supplementary high dose omega 3 supplements that I had stopped taking a few weeks earlier. The surgeries were successful. After assessment with oncology, I was scheduled and underwent radioiodine treatment in July. I was assessed in August by the oncology team and then Dr. Gilbert and his team in September. Results indicated that treatment was progressing well. I recently had follow ups with Oncology and Dr. Gilbert's team in March and April. Results indicate no recurrence which was reassuring. I feel very thankful and grateful. Dr. Gilbert throughout this process has been professional, reassuring, supportive and caring. He is an outstanding ENT Surgeon and his team of physicians are fantastic.

I was diagnosed with a very large parathyroid adenoma and was hospitalized with hypercalcemia. I was referred to Dr. Gilbert by an ENT in Oshawa and was seen very quickly by Dr. Gilbert. He arranged my pre-op appointment to minimize travel time and explained the condition, the procedure and possible problems to my satisfaction. He sought me out the day after the operation to show me digital pictures of the adenoma, a very interesting experience indeed. I found Dr. Gilbert to be warm and caring. I would highly recommend him as a surgeon.

Dr. Gilbert saved my life when I was admitted to TGH for a very difficult, complicated intubation. Very skillful and thorough, and I am grateful to God that Dr. Gilbert was available to perform this life saving procedure.
