"The Me'Chosen Medical clinic is no ordinary doctor's office. The doctor and staff are always very professional and have excellent patient/clinic rapport. I am personally going to the doctor's office quarter-annually and have had extensive care. These visits are always enjoyable and the view of the ocean is therapeutic on its own. I have had nothing but first rate service and find the trips to the doctor office enjoyable. I consider the doctor and staff friends and words do not do justice to the Me'Chosen Medical clinic."

"We are very fortunate and happy to have Me'Chosen Medical. From the staff to the doctors, all have made me feel like they are concerned with my overall well-being, not just the specific issue at hand. I am always asked if I am in agreement with any plan of action that has been carefully considered. Appointments are scheduled with very minimal waiting time, but any wait feels like a pleasant visit because of the beautiful waterfront view, great team, great care, great location."

Friendly and quiet atmosphere."

Dr. O'Connor is not only a great GP but also a valuable, involved member, giving of his time and expertise to the community of Metchosin.

"If you could rate a medical clinic this would be an A+. You would find nothing better. Going to the doctors can be stressful but the first thing you see is the fantastic waterfront overlooking Victoria. It has a calming effect and helps you relax while waiting. You never know what you'll see, from eagles soaring by, to whales, to otters, seals and cruise ships. The front staff: Donna, Roxie, Lisa and Deb are the most friendly and cheerful and helpful staff. They are there to help in any way and make you feel welcome. Dr. O'Connor is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He goes out of his way to address your health concerns and works with you to find the best solution. You are never rushed and with his expertise and knowledge you know you have got the best care and attention possible. Thank you Dr. O'Connor for choosing to make Metchosin your home."

"I grew up in Metchosin and have been fortunate enough to have a family doctor practice in Metchosin. Dr. O'Connor has been my and my children's doctor for the last 8-10 years. The setting of the practice is quiet and beautiful. Dr. O'Connor is very knowledgeable and caring. Reception is friendly and helpful. Appointments run on time and I'm never left waiting for my appointment. When needing an appointment, there is always something available within a day or two. I appreciate how close to home the practice is and how respectful I am treated by everyone."

"Dr. O'Connor and Me'Chosen Medical not only provide compassionate, high quality care but also a calming and enjoyable experience. The office location can only be described as stunning. Dr. O'Connor has created a place where our son (who has a chronic disease) can explore the fruit trees and count the boats rather than worry about his appointment. The staff and Dr. O'Connor are always empathetic and never seem rushed. We are more than happy with our doctor and care. Thank you Dr. O'Connor and the Me'Chosen Medical team!"

"This Me'Chosen Medical medical office is the 'hidden gem' of the Western communities (all suburbs north/west of downtown city of Victoria). The staff are super friendly and always interested in our well-being or catching up on our travel adventures. Everyone is so kind and competent. Enough can't be said to describe this clean, airy and modern office. Lots of parking, with waiting times spent examining all the goodies of Dr. Rob's greenhouse near the entrance. Fruits galore: oranges, lemons and pineapples. Thank you Dr. Rob, we are blessed.."

"I think I feel better just arriving at Me'Chosen Medical. A spectacular oceanfront vista, the occasional orca swimming by, sometimes a visit from a family of otters...it has an effect to be sure! If whatever ails me isn't cured outside, then a calm, co-operative approach to medicine by Dr. Rob and a pleasant, accommodating reception staff will do the trick.quot;

"I have been a patient of Dr. O'Connor since the opening of his practice, and have always had wonderful experiences.

"I am very impressed with the staff at Dr. O'Connor's office. My current state of health requires that I attend the doctor's office weekly, and as a result I have observed, on an on-going basis, the employee's dedication to their duties. I have also evidenced first-hand that they work harmoniously and with sensitivity to provide the best service to meet the needs of the patients. I have never experienced personally or seen any other patient been treated with other than respect, kindness or professional attention. This mode, in turn, is demonstrated in the interactions between the employees and the doctors."

"I feel very fortunate to have such a modern and convenient medical clinic in our rural area. Dr. O'Connor has created an atmosphere that has a feeling of the 'country doctor'. He also has the support of labs, x-rays, pharmacies and hospitals only 10-15 minutes away. All staff are friendly and caring, I never feel rushed or not heard. Thanks for your care Dr. O'Connor."

"As a cancer patient I have a wonderful medical team of specialists, but I credit Dr. Robert with saving my life. He was the one who recommended a simple ultrasound to determine why I was having serious issues and found the tumor that was causing the problems. Donna and Roxie kicked into high gear with followup to get me to surgeons and into the hospital in record time. The Me'Chosen team have monitored my progress and gone above and beyond to help me in my recovery. The office is run efficiently, wait-times are minimal, and the team shows great kindness and compassion. I also highly recommend you go early so you can enjoy the spectacular setting as part of your appointment. It's very therapeutic!"

"This is such an extraordinary doctor's office. To begin with, the parking situation is excellent, with lots of parking space and a wide berth for backing up safely. As you enter Dr. Robert O'Connor's medical waiting room, you will encounter the most spectacular ocean view that will take your breath away. Dr. Robert's predominantly glass waiting room captures this view, so the wait, which is almost always on time, is very pleasurable. As you enter this uplifting, tidy, clean waiting room you will be greeted by one of Dr. Robert's four lovely, smiling, polite, caring sweet receptionists. The seating is comfortable and if you can take your eyes off the view, the are many interesting magazines to read. There's also toys and books for the children to read, to occupy themselves. Three generations of my family feel very blessed to have Dr. Robert O'Connor as our GP. Dr. Robert is prompt, kind, approachable, thorough, understanding, intelligent, compassionate and does not rush you or limit you, to 'just one problem or question'. I can't say enough for the care we have all received these past 7.5 years, under his care. The parking lot, walkway, waiting room and the doctor's office are always clean and inviting. There's even a lovely fireplace flickering in Dr. Robert's office that goes along with the comfortable atmosphere you will encounter here. This GP, his staff, location, his office couldn't be any nicer!"

"Three major things I really like about Me'Chosen Medical: The setting, staff and doctor. Office looks out on magnificent view of Juan de Funa Strait. Makes your spirit soar when you enter. Gotta be BC's mot beautiful medical office. Then there's Donna, Roxie and Lisa who make the office's operations hum with a dispatch and charm that would make Mary Poppins proud. Never met more welcoming, bright-eyed ladies who ensure my prescriptions and appointments with specialists are managed. What I most treasure about Dr. Rob O'Connor is his ability to quickly and accurately figure out what the hell's wrong with me and fix it. Saved my life twice by his quick diagnosis and getting me help I needed. To boot, he's a really special, caring human being!"
