My first visit to Burnaby General ER I was diagnosed with Pneumonia and sent home with some antibiotics. A couple of days later my symptoms were worse and it was clear I needed to go back to the hospital - I had severe chills, fever, couldn't breathe and my heart was racing. Dr. Best saw me the 2nd time and immediately took care of me, admitting me to the hospital, CT Scan and was very caring and aware of my comfort level. It was confirmed I had fluid in my left lung and he stayed a few hours after his shift to drain fluid from my lung and even wheeling me in my bed to the xray technician's office to ensure I was looked after! Amazing Dr., great bedside manner and very caring, We need more Dr's like this for sure! Thank you Dr. Best,

I went to the health center with severe upper stomach pains 7 weeks post partum. He ordered blood work and it all came back normal. He took me seriously, so ordered additional blood work. The levels came back high so he ordered a CT scan to confirm his suspicions. I ended up having gallstone pancreatitis and needed my gall bladder out immediately. I think if i had of seen someone else they would have blew me off after the first set of blood work. He had such good bedside mannor and made sure my husband was filled in on everything once he arrived.

His last name suits him as he is the BEST. He is so caring, compassionate and so knowledgeable. He is a real asset to our medical system.

Sunday night I was sent home from the Cobequid and told my symptoms were merely a ‘stomach bug’. I woke up Monday morning in more pain than the night before, so I ventured back to the Cobequid. Very greatful that Dr Best saw me Monday morning because he took my concerns seriously; diagnosed me with appendicitis and did a CT to confirm his suspicions. Lucky for me I didn’t trust the Dr I saw Sunday evening! Dr Bob Best was amazing in making me feel comfortable with the transfer to the QE2 for my appendectomy. Hands down the best doctor I’ve seen, amazing personality, so greatful to have been treated by him Monday morning!!

Dr.Best was the first doctor to take a serious interest in my underlying health condition he listened to my concerns and took action and if it wasnt for his compassion and knowledge I may still be looking for answers

I just left the care of Dr. Best in the Cobiquid Emergency and I felt the need to say what an incredible Dr. Very knowledgeable and his bedside manner is superb! Puts you immediately at ease and explains everything you need to know in detail. I wish he was a family Dr. I would transfer to his care in a heartbeat! Wish we had more Dr.s like him.

I was at the Cobequid Medical Centre on Wednesday, January 11th/2018 . Dr, Best took care of me and given that I was not the most co-operative patient, his empathy, kindness, thoughtfulness and understanding was outstanding. After a few minutes, he made me feel valued and put me at ease. Dr. Best is well named. He is the very best and for a woman like me who has never been hospitalized before in sixty-three years, he explained my condition to me three times before I was willingly to accept the fact that I needed to be admitted. He did so with great empathy and kindness, never once making me feel that I was a nuisance. I was there for a long time before being taken to the QEII Health Sciences hospital and Dr. Best made sure to see me before he left in the wee hours of the morning. He is amazing and I thank him for his consideration, I will never forget his kindness to me.

I do not write reviews often, however this Dr. is amazing. After a recent emergency trip to Cobequid, his diagnosis was spot on and he is caring, empathetic, professional and has a great sense of humor! The wait was 1.5 hours and when I walked out, I thought, that was worth the wait, what a fabulous Dr. all around! Cobequid is very fortunate to have him on staff.

Super caring, thorough, and did an amazing job of calming me down and making me feel taken care of during a meningitis scare. Wish he was my family doctor.
