I would like to thank the hospital and their staff for our recent visit to the emergency.


I would like to thank the hospital and their staff for our recent visit to the emergency. We had been on vacation in Cuba as a family and my wife started experiencing severe headaches. We had completed standard tests and ruled out, migraines, infection, dehydration etc… She got progressively worse and on our return flight to Canada got really bad. Upon landing we went directly to the Civic Campus and my wife was assigned to emergent care immediately. Once we had seen Doctor and CT Scans completed, they found a tumour in my wife’s brain. She was scheduled in AM for an MRI for further diagnostics and potential surgery a few days later.

We had worked with a nurse in Emergent Care named Sheryl and she was beyond helpful. Her knowledge, professionalism and compassion was what kept my wife alive. She continued to push to have Neurology come and speak with us. Once Dr Agbi came to visit us, he was able to assess my wife and quickly determine that they needed to operate ASAP. Only a few hours later my wife went in to a non responsive state and they were able to stabilize her and perform Surgery within the hour and she is recovering very well today. I would like to thank Dr Agbi and his staff for helping save my wife’s life and nurse Sheryl for her constant aggression in ensuring our needs were met throughout the day.
