Ratings for Dr. Viktor F. Huckell
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. My Mom has been seeing him for the last three years after transferring from another cardiologist. Dr. Huckell has been nothing but fantastic. Very, Very Grateful for his care. As to having residents, they are wonderful as well and I feel like we are getting two for the price of one. Having said that, if you are having a procedure, clarify before it who will be doing. My Mom did and Dr. Huckell was only too happy to do the angiogram when my Mom told him she would be more comfortable with him. Thank you Dr. Huckell and all your great staff.
I had a great experience with dr huckell and his resident. My files were transferred from Quebec, all in French and he and his team took the time to go through my medical history thoroughly. I have been a cardio patient since I was born and seen many specialists and he is my favorite. He was questioning his resident the whole time about my file and involved me in the process, making it quite entertaining! He has a good sense of humor while being very professional and you can tell he's not afraid to ask them though questions. To people bitching about residents working with dr Huckell.. VHG is a teaching hospital affiliated to UBC, future doctors have to start somewhere! Anyway; I would recommend him.
Dr Huckell is byfar the best Doctor I have. Although having to have ongoing cardiac care since I have been 22, I am always delighted to see Dr. Huckell and his students. We always have a good laugh when his students try to figure out what my heart issue is, its kind of a game. I am only allowed to answer questions they ask, and cannot tell them. Dr Huckell likes to see if they can figure it out and it is always amusing.. Anyways he is the best and I am lucky he is my Doc. Amber Brown
Dr. Huckell is tops. Helpful, patient, not rushed .. willing and able to address every question posed by myself and my wife about my heart-related issues. We found him to be friendly, with a good and comfortable disposition. His sense of humour was greatly appreciated and put us both at ease with him. The pre-examination and presence of the Resident Physician was expected and both physicians were careful to speak to each other through me .... not around me. I appreciate taking part in that type of teaching environment .... else how would the Dr. Huckells of the world learn their very demanding and precise science. A good experience with a professional specialist. I will see him again in 4 months and look forward to another experience with him.
He is excellent. It is a teaching hospital so make sure to clarify and confirm / ask who is doing procedure BEFORE procedure. If you want dr. Huckell (not student) to do procedure, make sure to clarify. Grateful and thankful to have this doctor.
