Ratings for Dr. Alan So
My father is a patient of Dr. Alan So . Although I live in another country, Dr. So updated me frequently before the surgery and afterwards- it was tough to be away from my father but Dr. So 's confidence and kindness made things much much easier. My father did very well and I am so thankful. From- Family of Wong Lee Hap.
Dr. Alan review: 1. Overall good guy. He was patient with my wife and I during the consultation. 2. I have discussed my case with my GP- and Dr. So has an enormous reputation. Obviously I can't determine his surgical skills but in the medical community he is known as "the go to guy". 3. My procedure is booked in 6 weeks. Dr. So said he is optimistic about my chances to beat this. I am hoping I don't need any chemo or radiation stuff.
He is likely a skilled and competant surgeon. His bedside manner is cheerful and reassuring. Is is, however, completely unavailable for any post-op questions or concerns. His staff are unhelpful. I felt that Dr. So was never straight up front about what my husband was heading into re. kidney removal. I believe that Dr. So knew going in that it was going to fail. Poor communication and we didn't get all the information.
Superb surgeon. My wife and I travelled from Saskatchewan to see this highly respected surgeon to take out my bladder. I would do it again in a heartbeat. After three months my wife and I are now heading to Florida and I am now cancer free. Wow!! Staff are ok- but we are not here to see the staff- only Doc So is important. I would let him operate on my kids and wife anyday!
I'm sure that Dr. So is an excellent doctor but I will never know as my family member was ignored and left waiting to hear from him or his office for more than 7 weeks! Unacceptable! Staff was rude and dismissive..upon inquiry. After 7 weeks we were told that my family member"fell through the cracks".
Superb man, wonderful surgeon, kind heart. I agree with all below. Dr. So is special. We in Vancouver so are lucky to have him. My father underwent bladder cancer surgerie- a big operation - and came home healthy and strong. The incision and stoma looks wonderful. My dad spent so much time worrying but we laugh now that how smoothly it went. I am happy. Dad is happy. Our family is so thankful.
