5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
DR FORD is extremely knowledgeable and very caring. I met dr ford back in June 2014. From the day I met him I had a great feeling. He has really been phonomenal, His bed side manner has been better then I could or imagined. He answered all my questions and concerns to fullest detail and always took his time. My breasts look so amazing I couldn't be happier with the results and my amazing surgeon. Catherine his secretary is also amazing. Very easy to talk to and called me often to check in. I also had questions for dr ford. She always got back to me that same day. I will be back in the future is needed for anything else.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty
Truthful, understands your face, so knowledgeable
Dr. Ford has been a wonderful PS. I couldn't have asked for a more caring and thoughtful doctor. He answered all my questions and never made me feel like my questions or concerns were bothering him. He gave me his cell number if needed to talk with him. He had a gentle manor that I needed for this delicate procedure. He came over to see me after the surgery and told me everything went very well and that he thinks I will be very happy with the size we choose. I would recommend him to anyone considering a PS..
Hello, I am so excited to begin this journey. I am a RN who has just had enough of the bra strap issues, the rash (another one just healing). Cant wait to not have to buy an extra large in everything. I started taking arnica daily, no aspirin or Advil. Still having a wee drink of wine though. My Pre op was on Monday, and being a OR Nurse , I already know the drill. I don't practice in the...

Only problem is i have no results! my butt looks exactly like it did before i got it done!? Will my butt magically pop out?! please help im so sad i feel like this was a complete waste of money.
4 out of 5 stars Liposuction
I got arms, inner thighs, knees and the upper back area of thighs done. I was expecting a lot of pain but experienced nothing other than discomfort for a few weeks. I didn't even use my pain medication. The immediate results were impressive and I am still waiting for the final results after 3 to 6 months.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
Dr. Ford is incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. He listened to what type of results I was looking for and did a stellar job.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
Breast augmentation with lift, 5'6, 175 pds, 375cc silicone cohesive gels (Natrelle Inspira SSM moderate), under the muscle
After going to several consults, I have chosen Dr Ford to be my surgeon for a breast lift with implants. It was an easy decision, and so far, he has been great and I am so glad I chose him! He is a kind and gentle man, not proud like some of the other doctors I’ve met. He is knowledgeable, a leader in the industry, and his work is impeccable (based on pictures and reviews). I visited him in the Oshawa location, and was pleasantly surprised to see that his office is not overly fancy and ‘rich-looking’ (and this is reflective in the fair pricing for the consult and procedures, the lowest I was quoted throughout this entire process). I immediately felt comfortable with him, his pleasant demeanour and approach. He is naturally not a ‘salesperson’ (i.e. he won’t schmooze you, and he won’t try to sell you other procedures) – this is meant as a compliment, as I dislike salespeople. He is super professional and super knowledgeable. The only negative thing about his process is that he doesn’t offer a sizing appointment with actual sizers. He gave me his recommendation and suggested I make rice sizers at home. This has been a cause of stress for me as I’m the type of person that needs to know exactly what is going to happen, but I have placed 110% trust in him and his expertise. His staff tells me that he is focused on overall patient safety, a natural look, and minimal scarring, which I believe is evident by his before/after pictures (and I must say, his photos are the best I’ve ever seen, in my opinion). His staff are nice – not overly welcoming or overly nice, but they’ve been nothing but kind to me. They have been able to schedule me to last minute cancellations which is nice as I'd like to have my surgery asap. The wait times in his office are always delayed (a downside to him being so good), but I know from experience that this is because he actually spends time with his patients, ensuring he answers all their questions and doesn’t rush them. While the other doctors spent 15-20 minutes with me, Dr Ford personally spent over 1 hour with me on my first consult, reviewing pictures and the process and answering my questions. I have already gone back for more questions and have 1 more visit prior to surgery. If you’re debating whether or not to see him, I highly recommend you do! I am so looking forward to my surgery and will provide an update on him, his team, and his work once my surgery is done.
