Submitted Oct. 24, 2014 Love this Dr! He is so good at making you feel calm and answers all questions before and after surgeries. I had two done in less than two weeks by his wonderful team! I am thrilled with the results and can’t thank them enough for everything! Carol is amazing so accommodating to me because I come from out of town she manages to fit me in so I don’t have to stay an extra night in a hotel I highly recommend this Dr for any vascular issues!RateMDs
Submitted May 25, 2014 Dr. Gagnon was my uncle’s surgeon for a very serious 7.5cm Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. We arrived at VGH at 7:00 in pain and he had the class 10 surgery at midnight. He said the aneurysm was very thin and wouldn’t have lasted 48 hours. Kind and honest doctor. A credit to the profession. Cannot say thank you enough for saving my uncles life.
Submitted March 14, 2014 He is amazing…simply amazing. Don’t let his quiet french accent throw you…he knows what he is talking about! He speaks to you as an equal and not just another patient in the system. He takes the time to listen and takes even longer to discuss the options. He is patient, kind, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommended him…he is the kind of Doctor you can only hope for to look after you or a loved one. His secretary, Carol is also very helpful! She was welcoming and was able to coordinate a follow up appointment around my schedule. Thanks Carol!
