Worst doctor and doesn't care, July 1, 2010, 10:32 pm
Reviewer: redheadgypsy

My son had an accident and his hand was broken. Dr. Laeken set it and when he called her because he said it felt like something was wrong, she brushed him off. Well, now he has a very lumpy bumpy hand that is deformed forever, unless he get surgery for it all over again. She just did not care.

I loved Dr. Van Laeken, I'll agree she could come off as rushed and what not but she seems like a very to the point kind of person, so no she's not a "hand-holder" but then again she's a surgeon not a counsellor. Her staff were extremely nice and discrete. I had a pinched nerve right after surgery and her office on dec. 23 and was given an appointment because I was told if I was in that kind of pain there was no way they were letting me go through Christmas like that, I was in first thing in the morning dec. 24th despite the Dr. being extremely booked (the waiting room was evidence of that). Overall she's a great Dr., she's got a very calmming sense to her, she explained to me what kind of implants and size she very was appropriate for my body and why and as for the complaints of waiting, sure I waited a little bit but no more than I do at any other Dr. it was not unreasonable. I would definately recommend her to anyone who knows what they want and have made up their mind a 110% to do it.

Very Happy with this Dr., October 8, 2008, 10:49 am

Dr. Van Laeken is VERY personable as are all of her office staff. I have never had to wait more than about 5 minutes before being called into seeing her.

I had a Breast Reduction surgery done by this Dr. and I am extremely pleased with my final results and both the pre-opt and after-opt care given by her.

I would go into my appointments with a list of questions to be answered and she always answered all of my questions with patience and support.
I would not hesitate to use Nancy Van Laeken again for any plastic surgery.

About 3 weeks post-op I developed a sore under my left breast. I called the Dr.'s office and Dr. Van Laeken had me come in right away so that she could check it out. This was a Saturday morning and she came in especially to see me. I apologized for bothering her on a weekend and she said it is not a bother and I am pleased you called me. I want to see my patients as soon as they see something that might appear to be wrong.

I'd also like to point out that this Dr. came highly recommended by my own family Dr. and by several other women in my community.

Very bad experience, May 15, 2008, 11:52 pm
Reviewer: lil_pancake

I wanted a breast augmentation surgery and I chose dr Nancy Van Laeken because with the other well known breast surgeons in town I would have to wait at least 2-3mths for consultation and I didnt want to wait that long. I called around and dr van laeken was the soonest available dr. ( I should've taken that as a clue!! ). I only had to wait 2 weeks for my consultation. I got to my appt. 10 mins before and I had to wait close to 1 hr before the dr could see me. It was horrible. The dr herself was pleasant and I decided to go ahead and book the date for my surgery. Same thing happened, arrived at false creek surgical centre where she performed the surgery, had to wait for more than an hr cos she was behind with other surgery. The after care post op, I had to come back to false creek to get my dressings removed and remove my stiches. Got to false creek, and they said that they called my cell and left me a message that my appt. time was changed to an hr earlier. Told them I never got their message turned out they called the wrong number ( go figure ). So they rescheduled me for another day. I came back and this time the right time and day but I still had to wait for a looong time at the waiting room. When she took off my dressings I could see that my breasts were lopsided the left breast were so low with my nipple pointed upward and my right breasts were so hard and stiffed and very painful to the touch that I thought I had a capsular contracture. She told me to come back in a week so she could monitor my progress. I came back in a week, came back again in 2 weeks, my right breast was finally softened though not as soft as the left one, but they are still lopsided and assymetry because it's so obvious that the left breast is definitely lower than the right one and my nipples are also assymetry. To top everything off, now 1.5 yr later my supposedly dissolvable stitches are still not dissolved yet and I could still see and feel them around my nipples. HORRIBLE!!!.
