Ratings for Dr. Joel Gagnon
Thankfully someone referred me to Dr. Gagnon 5 yrs ago. I'm more than happy with his excellent, always present care. Overall my health concerns have been minimal in part due to diligence addressing concerns as they've arisen. I've never felt as secure with a physician as I do with Dr. Gagnon, knowing he always has my best interests at heart. Alas rather rare in our fast paced world.
Dr. Gagnon is quietly forthright. He was very honest about my situation and explained it well. I had first rib resection done mid February and had an excellent recovery! His skill in this area is well known and I'm lucky to have had him as my surgeon.
Doctor Faulds was incredible. He did everything in his power to make sure I had a safe operation and also that I was able to have the operation done in time to where I would not have to miss any schooling, which is huge considering the workload I have take on at University. He was kind, helpful, and very competent in his work. I would very highly recommend him.
Staff is rude. that is all i can say. Won't go back to see Dr. Gagnon as secretary treats me like I am not important. If something happens to me, I blame her. If you want to be treated with no respect, then call her as she will treat you like you do not matter. I hope they fire her and find someone better with caring personality. I know everyone says that she is amazing but when you talk to her on the phone, she is really not pleasant to talk to. Who would rank her "5 STARS"? if there were a section for the worse secretary, she would be names one of them. Good lucks guys.
Love this Dr! He is so good at making you feel calm and answers all questions before and after surgeries. I had two done in less than two weeks by his wonderful team! I am thrilled with the results and can't thank them enough for everything! Carol is amazing so accommodating to me because I come from out of town she manages to fit me in so I don't have to stay an extra night in a hotel I highly recommend this Dr for any vascular issues!
I was online seeing reviews on Dr. Gagnon. I saw that he had really good review. I realized that he also runs a private clinic called the EVA clinic where he treats veins. I have veins on my leg and saw one of his collegue, Dr. Liu and his nurse, Betty who were extremely professional and easy to speak to and was able to answer all my questions. They did not put any pressures on me to do any thing I didn't want to do. Great people. When I walked in to the office, i saw a lady in bright red hair, a white tank top, seeing her black bra and flip flops. She was dressed extremely unprofessional making the office looking really dirty and sloppy. She should not be wearing something like that and I am suprised that the doctor or nurse didn't say anyting. I believe her mom was there as well who was in another office. She was dressed appropraite but I thinkthat was the daughter that was helping us. She did not smile or greet us either. I am not sure why she is even sitting there if she isn't going to help us. Staff is very unprofessional. Other than than that, eveyryone was gret.
Dr. Gagnon was my uncle's surgeon for a very serious 7.5cm Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. We arrived at VGH at 7:00 in pain and he had the class 10 surgery at midnight. He said the aneurysm was very thin and wouldn't have lasted 48 hours. Kind and honest doctor. A credit to the profession. Cannot say thank you enough for saving my uncles life.
He is amazing...simply amazing. Dont let his quiet french accent throw you...he knows what he is talking about! He speaks to you as an equal and not just another patient in the system. He takes the time to listen and takes even longer to discuss the options. He is patient, kind, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommended him...he is the kind of Doctor you can only hope for to look after you or a loved one. His secretary, Carol is also very helpful! She was welcoming and was able to coordinate a follow up appointment around my schedule. Thanks Carol!
