Ratings for Dr. Frederick Bray
I had my first colonoscopy conducted by Dr. Bray at his Woodroffe office this week. I received a call a month in advance to reconfirm the appointment, which was extremely fortunate, as I had recorded the date incorrectly. I arrived 10 minutes prior to my scheduled appointment, and was greeted courteously by the receptionist. I was called into the procedure area promptly at the scheduled hour. Dr. Bray's attending nurse was friendly, knowledgeable and provided me with a very helpful and reassuring explanation of how the appointment would proceed and answered all of my preliminary questions. Dr. Bray gave me a detailed explanation of the procedure, and the importance of colon cancer screening. He invited questions and responded in a full, frank and professional way. The procedure was conducted and I was out of the office in exactly the timeframe anticipated. I was nervous and self-conscious about the procedure. I had no reason to be. Dr. Bray and his staff were outstanding and made a very intimate procedure, much easier to handle than I had anticipated. I'm grateful for the referral to Dr. Bray by my excellent family doctor, Dr. Lisa Moore. Thank you!
An anxious experience made comfortable by the knowledgeable and friendly staff. I particularly liked the fact that Dr Bray took the time to illustrate and explain the procedure in detail, as well as to answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Dr Bray and his staff.
recently had a colonoscopy and gastroscopy with Dr. Bray. I was extremely anxious about the procedures and it seemed he and his staff picked on this immediately. The procedures were done with ease . I was made very comfortable and the procedures painless. Dr. Bray and his staff were compassionate and professional. I would recommend Dr. Bray to anyone
My 17 year old daughter was diagnosed with crohns by Dr. Bray. He started her on Pentasa immediately. I watched her suffer for a year. Every time we returned to him for help, his answer was to double the dose and come back in 6 months. I watched my daughter suffer, lose weight and not be able to leave the house. Next visit, double the double dose and come back in 6 months. She got worse every day, it was like watching your child die a slow death. We looked for a new gastroenterologist but none would take her because she was a patient of the great doctor Bray. We finally found Doctor Bolano at the QCH and she did another colonoscopy, she was shocked at the incredibly horrifying state my daughter was in. She immediately started my daughter on Humara. Within a few weeks she was almost back to normal. Not long after, it was determined she was in remission. If there was a way to bring this so called doctor up on charges I would. To this day, he has yet to make contact with us but he has more patients then he needs anyhow as evidenced by the 1 hour wait times in his waiting room. I am still considering writing to the college of physicians.
First time having a colonoscopy today and I must admit I was nervous - not sure what to expect. I recommend Dr. Bray in a heartbeat; from his warm bedside manner; to his explanation of the procedure in layman terms; to his experience and knowledge! We need more doctors like him today who actually "connect" with their patient. I have never rated a doctor before but Dr. Bray and his staff merit one.
It immeasurably nice to have a specialist who has not only read the referring MD's notes, but actually listens to what the patient has to say. The staff is both personable and professional (with one exception, but given everything else, I'm honestly assume she was having an off day), and never once are you made to feel like a file instead of a person. I gave a five star of punctuality because they will run over if a patient needs extra time(I'm not going to whine because the nice lady in front of me was getting the care she required), and their estimates once you arrive are spot on. Overall, Dr Bray and his staff make what could be a dehumanizing experience painless and as pleasant as possible. His waiting room, otoh, sucks. Fantastic books and a TV not locked on TSN, but dreadful lighting, and rock hard uncomfortable chairs.
