Very disappointed with Dr. Janjua. Heard stellar things about him but found him to be rude and condescending.

Poorly run office. Wrong apt. times given, the phone just rings without an answering machine. Still waiting to meet dr. Have met locum with no warning, though she was good.

I found this Doctor arrogant and he did not help me at all with my sinus problem.

Staff is terrible at returning calls. I found Dr. Janjua to be knowledgable but he could use better bedside manner.

I recently was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called olfactory neuroblastoma. The tumour extended from the nasal and sinus areas and slightly into the brain. It required a 10 hour surgery by Dr. Janjua with Dr. Gooderham performing the part that required a neurosurgeon. From start to finish I found Dr. Janjua to be straight forward and helpful in understanding the overall process. Just over a month later I am about to start radiation. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Janjua for both the way that he dealt with me and for the skill and competence with which he performed the surgery. I am left with the firm belief that I could not have received better surgical care anywhere on the planet than what I received from both Dr. Janjua and Dr. Gooderham. Jen in the office was wonderful in answering queries and in arranging appointments. She was always pleasant and helpful

I believe Dr. Janjua to be knowledgeable to a degree but he did not help my situation. I was one of many patients who walked out with a nasal rinse bottle, only to have my problems persist for months and months down the line. Ultimately I got a new doctor who was able to solve my sinus problems.

I am very thankful to Dr. Janjua and the wonderful staff at St. Paul's hospital. My surgery was performed on November 25, 2014 and I am very comfortable with Dr. Janjua's knowledge, technique, and expertise. The procedure was done with great care and precision. The staff at St. Paul's Hosptial were excellent and demonstrated care and professionalism beyond expetation and made my stay very comfortable. I recovered very quickly and friends have even commented that my energy has returned so soon that it appears I hadn't had surgery at all! The only improvement I could suggest would be for the admin staff to send a reminder with clear instructions about after surgery care.

Dr. Janjua and Dr. Gooderham removed a tumour from the base of my brain at the top of my nasal cavity a few months ago. My follow-up care during my hospital stay, and all interactions with Dr. Janjua and his team since have been great. He and his team care so much for their patients, I have been called by him personally to answer questions (which is lovely considering his schedule). His assistant Jen is a god-send when you're in the whirlwind of diagnosis and assessments and surgery and all the stress that goes along with it. I hope I never need to recommend his services to anyone I know, but would do it without a moment's hesitation if the need ever arose. He and his team are invested in my health, and are conducting a rigorous follow up plan in order to ensure I'm monitored and remain in such good condition post-surgery. His team is fantastic, as is he - couldn't be more thankful that he's my doctor.

My review is 50/50. While I found Dr. Janjua to be friendly, I also found him rather dismissive of my issues. I have been having sinus trouble for years with no relief. While I was in the waiting room I saw numerous people exit with boxes of rinse and was given the same box upon the end of my appointment which has not helped. I will be seeking another opinion.

Dr Janjua did an amazing job with my sinus surgery. I had a lot of polyps and have been on steroids on and off for years. Since I met Dr Jamjua, he took a different approach with me and with the help of the special rinses and surgery and haven't required steroids for more than 2 years. He is very committed to his patients and wants the same commitment from them. He's excellent at his job and delivers in results. His front desk staff ( Jen) is very nice and accommodating. Glad I was referred to his team .
