Dr. Robert Backstein's Ratings
I had a tummy tuck done by Dr Backstein. I needed to get a checkup done at a medical clinic as I live far away from Toronto. I knew my results were great but that was all confirmed when two nurses at the other clinic went on and on about how great things looked especially for only 2 weeks out of surgery. This has given me great confidence going forward. It seems that the doctor is all he billed to be on this site and others.
I'm a woman in my 30's and was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer. Needless to say this came as a shock to me. At my age one doesn't expect these things. What was an absolute life save (no pun intended) was that Dr. Backstein was able to see me and remove the growth fully (now cured) all within several days! I was expecting the dreaded 3 month wait wondering if the thing was spreading around or getting into my blood stream. I can not describe enough the relief it gave me to have this done so fast. I literally felt like I was in a daze but only for a couple days, can't imagine going months like that. I see Dr. Backstein does a lot of cosmetic surgery so I must commend him and than him with all my heart for putting a patient like me as a priority. He is obviously both a good person and a great doctor.
Dr. Backstein performed chest surgery on me. I am slightly overweight and had glands. I was even a bit embarassed coming to the consult appointment, didn't know what to expect and how I'd feel about taking my shirt off and basically having my chest combed over. It was all good Dr. Backstein was cool and made me feel at ease about the process. He even mentioned he had some problems similar when he was a teenager so I knew he could relate. The guy also looks in top shape himself so I had confidence that he had a good idea about what looks good. I did my surgery about 5 months ago and I'm absolutelty happy with the results. He did gland remove + lipo on my chest. My scars are basically not there anymore and my chest looks totally flat and natural. I really thank Dr. Backstein for his skill, kindness and making this a 100% positive experience. I;d do it again 1000 times over.
Dr Backstein himself, is an amazing guy and he really does know his stuff. He is also willing to do surgeries that other surgeons have told me in the past, they weren't comfortable doing. However, that is a far cry from the old lady that works reception. Good luck feeling like that woman cares about anybody but herself. I have never in my life had someone in a receptionist position try to talk to me the way she did. She has herself on a pedestal that as far as I am concerned, she does not deserve. Because of her pathetic work ethic and her obvious lack of customer service in the medical profession, I have decided to not use Dr. Backstein's office for my procedure. She blatantly admitted to me that she does not have time to do bookings and that she "gets to it when she gets to it". That, as far as I am concerned, is unacceptable. If you are unable to do your job in a timely fashion, you should at least have the decency to reach out to your superiors and advise them that you need assistance or help with your issue. Instead, this woman, makes her problems, someone else's problem. No thank you. I would advise anybody who goes to this office to keep in mind, you are on her time and only her time, since she made it that very clear to me, she does the bookings and only her. So when she gets time to do it, it gets done. GREAT ATTITUDE!
