GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre: what do users think?
Will Schuurman: I spent 4 weeks at GF Strong after spending 5 weeks in a general hospital following a major surgical procedure.I arrived at GF Strong frail with loss of mobility. All therapists (physio, occupational, speech, recreational) and doctors we're amazing, they helped me recover and return home with physical and mental skills needed to thrive with with reduced capabilities.Nursing, food and transportion services were amazingly supportive and compassionate. GF Strong's structured approach to therapy empowered me to be very active in recovery and adaptation. I can't thank them enough for guiding me through a very difficult period.
Randy Vancouver: My buddy was moved to GF Strong a month ago from VGH. He had a spinal operation and is starting the long journey back to health.Great staff, and a peer counselor named Walt take great care of him daily.TV's are small, so when I'm rich, I will supply new ones.You can't get better support if you suffer a life changing illness or accident.Thank God for GF Strong...
ron c: Awesome staffGreat rehabCan't say enough about the place
salina imani: disgusting horrible communication and unbelievably rude staff my family member was a patient here and they didn’t even care to follow up with them as an outpatient. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. you are not the best rehabilitation centre it’s embarrassing you call yourselves that. disgusting. THEY COULDVE DIED be ashamed of yourselves
Nico 'Chibi' .S: I was in there on July 24 2018 to recover ans rehabilitate to walking again from a spinal operation that fixed my pinched nerve. My experience was so warm and the Nurses and Doctors helped me through a very dark place. my PT and OT were excellent and just pushed me to become a better person for my son. 3 times a week, we had game nights. The art studio brought out the passion to paint again. I went in not able to dress myself to partial aided standing. Thankyou GF Strong for all your help.
Carol J. Sutton: Caring, compassionate care delivered by dedicated professionals and experts. Thank you.
Raman Dhaliwal: I came here to get my nerves check by Dr.H and Morgan (I am sorry if I forgot your name), they were the sweetest people ever. They made me feel really comfortable and talked to me step by step for what they were doing. I couldn't ask for any two other people to help me better, they were amazing!
svee bains: I was discharged to GF after 4.5 months at VGH,I found the staff to generally be very welcoming and helpful in my transition. The food was definitely better :) The downfalls were having to share a room and small washrooms. On my third day i went to physiotherapy, there I was told I'd never walk,however my therapist and I diligently worked at getting me back on my feet. I had a great OT and got back to cooking. They have hot water so showering was a better experience. Clients are taken on trips such as the PNE,family's encouraged to visit and there's a mini mall across the street. You can also use the computer lab in the basement. I'm an outpatient now and so thankful for the empathetic, experienced staff. I only wish the facility was larger
Preet Jaswal: I took drivers rehab driving lessons here, and it was the most horrible experience that I could think of ever happening. The OT Lisa, doesn't have any respect for how to treat someone and she constantly tries to put her patients down. I came in for my FDE appointment, and my father had come with me and she wouldn't let him give her any input on my physical situation, which he should be able to because he is my parent. If you're going to be working in a rehabilitation center, make sure you know how to talk to someone properly with the respect that they deserve if someone is trying to be nice to you. Don't put someone down just because they are not meeting your standards. People learn and succeed in different ways!!!! I definitely know that I won't ever be coming back here again!
Boomer L: Just got back from visiting stepson, who is paralyzed and in a wheelchair. My wife did all the visiting in the building as due to covid, 1 visitor in the building only. Acceptable. By all her accounts, support staff on 2nd floor are excellent, Julia, Chris are some of the names she mentioned. And the stepson is probably one of the worst patients they will have, rude, swears alot, etc.Brings me to the facility itself, only once a week sessions with social worker and psychologist. Makes no sense. Does not seem to be much investment into the mental aspect of recovery. How are the patients supposed to deal with being in a wheelchair the rest of their lives? My wife had a big fight with the stepson, was in tears, a person parked next to me in the parking lot also was in a fight with her son, and the day before, saw a husband in wheel chair make his wife cry. Yes, very difficult to adjust to new lifestyle, but the facility wants family to support, but family keeps getting abused by the patients. There needs to be more attention put to the mental recovery aspect. Also stepson moods seem to be really like bipolar, but when we try to talk to someone about it, there seems to be no where to turn. "He's an adult, so.....' Professionals dont seem to be able to recognize the mental needs or mental illness of some of their patients.
Westcoaster Shells Paull: Lisa Luft, RSLP (C), Lisa Vardi RD, CNSC are a few of the kind ladies who helped my sister deal with ALS. They are wonderful people to deal withThank you for all your good work .
Kathy McDonald: It is a great place for rehab pt, ot and nurses are great. Expect to be bored and don't depend on the food. Was able to walk out
B P: Rude unprofessional staff and Drs. Dr I met with was invalidating, belittling, and just generally awful. Some people have no business working in this field.
Google User: Have called them probably 30 times this week because they left a message for me, and nobody answers. I need serious help with my concussion, and a concussion clinic doesn't even answer the phone.
Miriam Watkins: Wonderful place that really cares about people
Duyoo Gong: Good job.
Jessie Gordienko: I was sitting in the lobby on a wooden bench waiting to visit my friend. This man comes in in his electric wheelchair and loses control of it. He hits me, pushes the bench and pins my legs against the bench beside me. I was screaming because my legs were being crushed. The security guard just watched, did not even ask me if I was okay, offer ice, or anything. There were other visitors around too, and they didn't say or do anything. Everyone just stared. My legs are so swollen and cut up.
Ghislaine Halverson: Almost 28 years an out patent at GFS . I like the name change from Hospital to rehab center . By some of the reviews a hospital they do every thing for you even wipe your bum . A rehab center will teach you how to do it yourself . Sure nice knowing I have GFS behind me as I get older .
L Dub: Reception staff are rude as hell. Had me wondering around like an idiot, made me felt like I was an idiot.
Velma Telek: Blonde seemed rude when I asked direction on 2nd floor behind the service desk 😥😝
Debra Hong: Best service and place for rehab.Everyone is so dedicated to their job.Can't thank them enoug.Dr Reebye, Dr Hallem, Dr Rainer, Debbie, Tracy, Dina, Mike, Kathleen Big thank you 😆

Urgent Care Centre - UBC Hospital: what do users think?
爹Ryan: Hello UBC fellows! Don’t expect to get any real help if you encounter some Asian, especially Taiwanese nurses when entry. Both young and old are simply rude and uneducated. But this doesn’t mean that there aren’t some good people here. Generally speaking, white nurses and doctors show great sympathy and excellent professions.
Dominic Tomkowicz: I am extremely disappointed and appalled at the completely inaccurate and shockingly long wait times here. Firstly, I just want to say straight up that in no way do I think poorly of the doctors and nurses who dedicate their hard work to this hospital and its patients, working 12 hour shifts. The staff at this hospital were very nice and dedicated, and I can attest to this personally in the way they professionally carry their operations and conversations with patients including me, so I have absolutely no problems in the way that I or any other patients around me were treated.That being said, I cannot say the same for the upper management of this hospital. In my opinion they are running the waiting queue terribly, with a real wait time for me of over 6 hours. In the most polite way, I just have to ask them: what is going on with this place?? As a university student, I have things to do that if missed, can affect my grades severely. Not only did I miss my 3 PM math class, a subject I already struggle in, but I had to skip lunch and feel awful hunger while waiting to see a doctor, which feels very bad for someone with a fast metabolism like me who needs lots of calories every day. All thanks to the completely understated and inaccurate wait times posted on the EDwaittimes website and irresponsible queue management.After arriving at the hospital at about 10 AM, the ED wait times website showed a wait time of just under one hour to see a doctor, but it took a whopping 3.5 hours before I was taken to a hospital bed, being taken from one waiting room, to the next, and finally to the hospital bed. I am currently on this hospital bed at the time of this writing and have waited 2 hours since being directed to this room. These are VGH levels of wait time, and I specifically came to UBCs hospital to avoid the wait times of VGH.I honestly hate to say this and never thought I would say it, but if every hospital is like this in Canada, I would totally prefer America’s expensive healthcare system. At least that way I would have half a day left to do something.
Joyce F: I visited the UBC hospital laboratory on Feb 15 at around 10am for blood taking and unfortunately, I had a concerning experience with a laboratory technologist/phlebotomist. The phlebotomist, who happened to be an older Asian female, displayed unprofessional conduct and made unacceptable clinical errors.As a patient, it is crucial to feel safe and confident in the care we receive from healthcare professionals. Regrettably, this was not the case during my visit. I urge others to exercise caution and consider alternative options when seeking healthcare services at the UBC hospital laboratory.The UBC hospital administration should prioritize patient safety and maintain high standards of professionalism and competency, particularly in clinical settings. It is my hope that they will take appropriate measures to address this issue and prevent similar incidents in the future.
Chris: I recently visited this hospital for a procedure in the gastroenterology unit. I was truly impressed by the quality and level of care of all the staff, including receptionists, nurses and doctors. They were pretty organized and showed empathy towards all the patients. You can feel they really have a passion for what they do here. Thank you and God bless you all 🙏🏻
Mashhur S: I think they should hire more doctors to make service better.
Kallie Volk: Joel was an amazing nurse! Great attention to detail and very empathetic. Made my stay that much more enjoyable!
Ashley Michele: So impressed with this hospital. Between the nurses, staff and doc everyone was incredibly helpful, empathetic and resourceful. Taking care to check in, be clear as possible and ticking the boxes for possibly issues. Not to mention how clean it is. It’s always a dread needing to face Emerge but knowing you are so cared for by this staff and facility is reassuring.
Katherine Lauriente: UBC hospital is much quieter and cleaner that either vgh or St Paul's. I really appreciate the staff here, especially the CT people.
Alexandria Devereux: Was admitted for a week for my procedure this past July and from the moment I entered the doors at admitting to when I was ready to leave - everyone I met & that was involved in my care was super helpful, doting and kind.All my nurses were conscientious, timely and helpful above & beyond their stations! Helping me charge my phone since I forgot my charger at home, ensuring I had all I needed to be safe & comfortable - plus resident doctors were all extremely professional, reassuring with excellent bedside manners and skills.This is more of a speciality location so don’t expect to find yourself here unless you have been referred by a specialist or have a elective surgery scheduled. But it’s a lovely place to be with wonderful people who I really hope are recognized and treated well by VCH for their contributions. I’m very thankful and happy 🌹
薑黃貓: Very Sweet and helpful place.
Mickey Qin: I got a surgery last Friday in UBCH,for taking a big lipoma out from my shoulder. Now I rest at home then have time to express my thanks again to the doctors and nurses. They are so lovely and kind and professional. Take care , Dr Vasilyeva, Dr Li, nurse Nicole and other nurses! Thank you!
Jessica: The doctor, nurses and receptionists are all so sweet, you can feel like they actually care about you. The wait can be a couple hours or possibly longer, but the wait here is much more worth it than waiting at a walkin clinic for the professional care they provide. Thank you all!
Tristan Knoess: Great place
Jenkin Tsui: The wait is long, but the doctors here are extremely helpful and experienced. A lot of them also work at the student clinics so it is great being able to get help from them at different locations.Keep up the great work!
Jonine Rochacewich: I recently spent three weeks in UBC/CAMU after ankle surgery. I’d like to express my sincere thanks to my PT Russell, my OT Stephanie and special shout-out to nurses Jin Ru, Tarryn and Angelee, and care-aide Helen. I’m grateful to all the team that helped me on my road to recovery. The hospital is clean and the food isn’t bad either! Also, Shirley in food services put a smile on my face every morning with her cheerfulness. It’s a great team and everyone seems to care about the patients and each other. It’s something very nice to see during the challenge of the pandemic
Olive Oil: GE CLINIC 非常好👍friendly and professional staff, my visit was very smooth and felt welcoming!
H: Professional, pleasant, very clean. Excellent experience! Thank you to Dr. James Gray and my nurse Tommy as well as all the nursing staff in the Gastroenterology clinic.
