Dr. Tetley, Saanichton - Rating: 5

March 17, 2015
Went to SanPen emerge for a 3week old knee injury that Just wasn't going away. Was experiencing pain and swelling. He realized the severity and called the orthopedic surgeon there doing satellite appnts there for patients obviously on the Peninsula. I live in Sidney. 2 days later, THAT surgeon was seeing me at Vic General. Dr. Tetley seemed genuinely concerned, was compassionate, and not hurried. Because he and the doctor he referred me on to were the same in nature, it leads me to believe more socially compassionate medical students are getting jobs these days after getting their PHDs. How else can we explain this sincere and caring attitude today among younger doctors?

Dr Amar is great! First met him in 2012, when dealing with Crohn's-related issues which were having a severe impact. He's knowledgeable, caring, pro-active, treats patients with respect. I appreciate his sense of humour too.
