UBC MS clinic info??

Postby Mike56 » Thu Nov 26, 2009 11:44 am

Someone was seeking info about the UBC MS clinic in Vancouver, BC the other day. I was going to reply, but I cannot find the post. I have limited experience with UBC (1 visit so far) but I'd be happy to share with you.

Hi Mike56.

That someone was probably me. :wink:

Primary Progressive MS - Anyone out there?

Which MS doctor at UBC would you recommend? I hope to be accepted by Dr. Kastrukoff.

I went to the UBC Clinic for a couple of years, but not any more. Kastrukoff is my neuro (he goes to PG 1 day a year). I like him. If I didn't know him and saw him walking down the street, I'd guess he was some kind of doctor.

The Neuro I was assigned is Dr. Traboulsee (Tony). Great guy, easy to talk to, and very thorough! I actually briefly talked with 5 Dr's, they all seemed very approachable. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the clinic.

Second thumbs up for Traboulsee. He was the neuro I saw when I lived in Van.

Thanks for the feedback. I also went on RateMDs.com and Dr. Kastrukoff’s rating is excellent. I’m definitely more at ease.
