Ratings for Dr. Clayton Tuffnell
I was referred to Dr Tuffnel because my uterus/fibroids were too large for the referring Gyne to feel comfortable to remove laparoscopically. I had a surgery date booked for the referring Gyne but was referred to Tuffnel one week prior to the surgery date. I had taken the time off work and by the time I saw Dr Tuffnel, the soonest I could take the required time off again was going to be one year later. He told me to contact his office 4 months prior to the desired surgery date (to coincide with my scheduled time off work). When I contacted the office 5 mos prior, they were already booked two months past the 'desired' date. Which means another year to wait. I contacted the original referring Gyne explaining my predicament. She referred to someone else. That wasn't my biggest issue with him. I never felt so violated in my entire life. I am in the exam room on the table waiting for him and he comes in with some woman, who he never explained or introduced, he examined me while she stood there. I appreciate some women want that, but show a little respect!!! Tell me when I arrive for the appointment it is policy, ask me if I want a third party present, or tell me there will be!!! It was so uncomfortable. I was willing to ignore this rudeness if he could do my hysterectomy but I would NEVER recommend him. I felt like he did not respect me or my autonomy.
The most amazing doctor ever. Delivered my first son and did emergency c section. Second time.he did my d and c. And now he is my doctor with my second child . He was so caring and listens. Always asks if we have questions. Always on time and never late. So organzied. The staff is great.
I've had Dr.Tuffnell for both of my pregnancies and I could not have asked for a better experience! He is very caring, respectful and knowledgable always looking out for what was best for me and baby not to mention I don't think he was ever late throughout my 2 pregnancies. His staff, mainly Kathy were absolutely amazing and always a pleasure to see! My second pregnancy ended up in a scheduled c section and It was an amazing experience and in can barley see my scar! I highly recommend him, I wish all doctors offices were run the same way!
I had Dr. Tuffnell for my emergency C-Section and he stepped in as he was the on call doctor at the hospital. He was wonderful, and I liked him very much. He discussed my options with me (though at this point I was begging for a C section) and made sure I made an informed decision. My scar healed beautifully and you can barely see it and now that I'm pregnant with number 2 I will be making the trek from Maple Ridge to Abbotsford (which I swore I wouldn't do) so I will have him again!
