"I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Laskin today …”
“To say that this man is a hero is an understatement. He is extremely thorough and so personable. An individual in medicine who carries himself with such professionalism, integrity and care is very hard to come by and as someone who has struggled with an auto-immune disease and potential fertility challenges, this man has made such a remarkable first impression. He is approachable, honest, and made me smile with his quirkiness and humourous demeanour. He is willing to help find a solution. It is so obvious that Carl Laskin is on the same team as his patients — something that all patients long for. Dr. Laskin needs to be recognized for his outstanding efforts, experience and care. Thank you for all that you do in making a difference.” N.S.
