full_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-HALF Submitted May 6, 2015 He is right to the point. Appreciate it. Helps him to see more patients who also are desperate to get an appointment with him. I am alive today because of my donors family and Dr. Scudamore and his team. I’d take his briefness any day for his knowledge, surgical skills, and teaching skills to other doctors. A patient is very fortunate to be able to see him at all. He is in one of the hospitals from am to pm. You’d find out if you are in the hospital yourself.. Morning to night. Thankyou.
full_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-small Submitted Nov. 22, 2014 I went with my mom to Dr Scudamore’s office and can not say enough about how amazing he is. His receptionist was lovely and helpful, he was amazing apologizing for being a little late as he had to perform a liver transplant. He gave us his thoughts on diagnosis first to assure us and them went over in detail not only regarding the spot on moms pancreas and why his thoughts were such but even other information regarding the fracture in her spine due to osteo. He had a great sense of humour which how heavy his job is was a breath of fresh air. He followed up with detailed testing and was very thorough in telling us all the possibilities. If I ever need a surgeon with his speciality (which I hope I don’t) I would not go to anyone else but Dr Scudamore unless I had no other option.
full_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-small full_star-small Submitted Aug. 31, 2014 I can understand how some people might not like Dr Scudamore as he can come off a little cold when you first meet him , but really he’s just extremely focused. I was lucky enough to have him perform a liver resection to remove a very large tour from 3 segments of my liver and he only left a very clean 4 inch scar. Prior to meeting him I was told that I would need to take 12+ weeks off of work to recover , but I was back to work after only 2 weeks!!I met him once (14 months prior to surgery) and we met for about 30 minutes where he explained that how my procedure would work and how it would be different from most based on the location of my tumour. His office assistant followed up with several time to make sure all of my labs were constantly up to day while I was waiting for my surgery as well. The only bad thing I could say is that it would have been nice to talk to him the days of my surgery versus his residents, but all three of them were fabulous doctors and never felt that I wasn’t in capable hands the entire time I was in the hospital. I have my one month follow up with him next week and I’m looking forward to seeing the before and after MRIs.The only bad thing I can say about the entire experience is how long it took to see him but I feel that it was 100% worth the wait. I also understand that some people would be frustrated by how little they saw him when they were in the hospital, but like I said before his residents do a fabulous job and I understood that I wasn’t going to see him much because really it wasn’t necessary, and his time was best spent in the operating room versus doing rounds. I only saw him twice during my 1 week stay, but I never felt that I was left in the dark.
