As a Pediatrician it has been my pleasure to share many patients with Dr. Diamond over the last 20 years. His passion and genuine caring for his patients often went beyond expectations. I have cared for many babies who have had their circumcisions performed by Dr. Diamond, and from a clinical perspective I would attest that they were all done with outstanding expertise and without any complications. Dr. Diamond has a wonderful demeanour and families have found his style most relaxing and comforting.

Dr. Diamond is so passionate about his job it gave me comfort knowing that he would be performing my son’s circumcision. He took the time from his holidays to do so.
He also took the time to go over the procedure and answered all questions or concerns we had.
Dr. Diamond said he would call the following day to check on my son and he did exactly that. When he couldn’t get a hold of me or my husband he tried again and left a message reassuring me that I can call him any time and that he’d be waiting to hear back from us. Dr. Diamond thank you so much for being a compassionate doctor who truly loves his job and his patients!
― David & Zarmig Burlo
Dr. Diamond was recommended to us by our close friends. We obviously were concerned that such an important procedure be handled by a professional, and that was definitely Dr. Diamond. His very kind and warm demeanor immediately put us at ease, followed by his knowledge and competence. He reviewed everything from top to bottom over the phone, and then again when he came to our home.
The procedure was clean, quick, and blessed by his expertise. We felt very fortunate to have put our baby in his hands for this delicate, and important ritual.
― Alex and Amanda Courey
Dr. Aubie Diamond is a wonderful mohel. He has performed all 3 of my sons’ circumcisions and I have recommended him widely to friends, family, and patients. His remarks at each Bris were meaningful and personal and his technique skilled, efficient and precise. I followed his recommendations for advance application of a topical anesthetic and all 3 of my baby boys cried minimally during the diaper change before the procedure but not at all during the circumcision! They did not seem any worse for wear in the ensuing days and they all healed beautifully. As a mother and a Family Physician, I applaud Dr. Diamond’s expertise and endorse his work without hesitation.
― Dr. Joanne Grevler MD, CM, CCFP
Dr. Diamond was highly recommended to us by a friend, a Plastic Surgeon, who had Dr. Diamond perform his own son’s ritual circumcision. Dr. Diamond performed non-ritual circumcisions on both of our precious sons, and I can say only excellent things about Dr. Diamond. Not only is he a proficient technician, but he is an excellent communicator and he is sensitive to the needs of new parents. He made himself available in timing and location. His handouts were very informative and he was an excellent teacher with regards to after-care. I especially appreciated his follow up phone call to see how our boys were doing. Dr. Diamond is caring and compassionate, and I recommend him without hesitation, both as a physician (which he was not aware of at the time) and as a mother.
― Dr. Sharon Kim MD, FRCSC (Plastic Surgery)
As a referral from our pediatrician we had the pleasure of meeting Dr.Diamond and having him circumcise our first son. Not only was he kind and gentle with our son, but as new and nervous parents he was very calming for us. He took the time to explain his method and made sure we were comfortable before he did the procedure. How comforting for my son to have it done in his fathers arms! Dr.Diamond is extremely professional, caring, and sees the procedure through until healed. Our son healed very quickly and did not cry for more than a few seconds. There is no other way for me but to have this procedure done in such a warm and calm atmosphere. If we are blessed with another son, without any doubt we trust only Dr.Diamond to take care of his circumcision
― Adam and Christine MacGregor
My wife and I had the good fortune to have Dr. Diamond perform our son’s circumcision. The procedure was done in the comfort and safety of our home. Dr. Diamond’s knowledge, warmth and dedication were all evident throughout the entire process. The information he provided both prior and during the procedure was clear and concise but most importantly Dr. Diamond followed up with us the next day to make sure there were no issues. His excellent dedication gave us peace of mind and security to know that we would be well supported. If my wife and I were blessed with another son we would not hesitate to ask Dr. Diamond to do his circumcision which is the best test of our complete trust and respect for Dr. Diamond.
― Rahim and Sarah
Dr. Diamond is a very kind, gentle, and caring man. When my husband and I decided to have our son circumsized, I knew we had made the right choice after the first conversation I had with Dr. Diamond. Very informative and he gave us all the information we needed which made us feel very confident in our decision. The day of the procedure, Dr. Diamond had arrived at our home and again made us feel like we were placing our son in the right hands. Very quick, very clean, and very happy. Everything was exactly as it was explained to us. Afterwards, we were most pleased that Aubie went thorough the first diaper change with us and showed us what was normal and what was going to change over the next few days, and weeks. Dr. Diamond is DEFINITELY on the TOP of my referrals. When you are looking for a Doctor to perform a great job, have wonderful bedside manners and be very gentle and loving towards your son…………………..you have found him. It was truly a pleasure to have you touch our lives.
This is great news for all future baby boys out there….Jewish or not, like us. Your hands are the best.
Jacob is great and looking great down below, thanks to your skill, ha.
We, to this day, tell all who know us about how awesome that day went for Jacob, even when Marianne was so emotional.
Stefano Di Giulio, SDG Design
Right away we had great expectations as the two families who recommended Aubie were so pleased with the outcome of both their sons’ circumcisions. He offered the convenience of coming to our home to do the procedure which was ideal as I did not feel comfortable with the way the procedure would be done in the clinic and wanted the ease and comfort of being at home. Aubie took the time to explain everything to us in a very clear and professional manner before starting. The procedure was quick and did not seem to cause much discomfort to our son and being at home made it easy to nurse and sooth him afterwards. Aubie followed up on his recovery with regular emails and phone calls, and was happy to answer any questions or concerns we had. We couldn’t have chosen a better Doctor and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you Aubie.”
Kate and Omar
So far so good! Liam is doing well, a little more sleepy than usual. He is eating fine, and finally had a bowel movement. His penis looks red just like you said and a little swollen. He is not miserable at all. Richard and I are most pleased, especially the fact that we have met you, not just for performing the procedure, but for making us as parents feel confident and comfortable with everything!
Thank you again for everything. If we have any concerns, we will be in touch. I we will be sure to pass your contact info along to anyone we know looking in the future!
Dr. Aubie Diamond
Jennifer and I want to thank you for a few things. First being the original phone call; you were very detailed in your explanation regarding the process for the circumcision of Owen which was very reassuring for Jennifer as she really was unaware of how it all would take place.
Jennifer and I agreed that there would not be anything religious during the procedure, no real blessing just straight circumcision. You were even more friendly and kind and caring in person, from the time we entered your home to the time we left was maybe 45 minutes but the actual procedure we were both in shock how fast it all happened with very little crying from Owen.
Again we want to thank you and we will and have recommended you already and will continue to do so.
Jason, Jennifer and Owen Crandall
We were referred to Dr Diamond for our second son’s circumcision, and couldn’t have been happier with the process! Dr Diamond was warm and caring towards us and our son, and explained the procedure thoroughly, setting us at ease. He was very gentle with our newborn, and the procedure was very quick.
Following the procedure, we were able to nurse our baby comfortably, and then Dr Diamond walked us through the dressing changes we would need to do. Everything was done professionally, and with the utmost care, and our baby healed well within the first few days.
We will definitely visit Dr Diamond again if we have another boy, and have already recommended him to friends!
― Sarah & Scott Cowley
To Dr Aubie Diamond;
We would like to take this opportunity to thank-you for the circumcisions of Yeshua Andrew and Ariel Israel. Your calmness and thorough explanation on what to do to prepare the boys and what happens afterwards for the next few days really helped. We really appreciated the time you took with us before and afterwards, and being readily available for questions or concerns anytime. If we do have another boy we will be sure to call! Bless you.
Grace, Peace and Love be yours in abundance,
Andrew Louis and Olga Rosa Heron
Dr. Diamond did the circumcision on our one week old son in sept 2012. Dr. Diamond ensured we were properly prepared with all the supplies we needed and what to expect during the procedure and aftercare. His procedure is very fast and seemed virtually painless as the baby did not cry. He made himself available for any problems and called us the following day to make sure everything was OK. Dr. Diamond is very friendly and professional and I would highly recommend him if you are planning a circumcision for your son.

Aubie has helped us bring our two sons into the faith by performing the brit ceremony. His in-home option allowed us to share this day with friends and family while avoiding any unwanted or potential germs in the hospital setting. Aubie is exceptionally gifted both procedurally and personally. Through detailed conversations and emails, Aubie walked us through the procedure and ensured we were comfortable with the post care needs our sons required. Aubie came as a recommendation from a family friend and we would not hesitate to do the same.
― Noam Lamdan
We have had the pleasure of having non-ritual circumcisions for all three of our children in the past three years. My husband and I have found Aubie’s services to be based in strong medical experience which is reassuring to all parents, and his communication of what to expect in the circumcision — what to do before, and what to expect during and in the days afterwards — is thorough and clearly presented. What is more, Aubie’s kind and warm demeanour make an otherwise potentially anxious and unpleasant experience one that is routine and without any need for concern. We came to Aubie based on two experienced parent referrals, have recommended him to others, and would continue to do so to any new parent of a sweet baby boy!
― Alison Rusek
When we found out we were going to have a son, the question of circumcision was not one that immediately came up but when it did was not exactly clear cut. I decided to look around at my different options available. My initial telephone conversation with Aubie was what sealed it for me. He made me feel that the procedure was going to be quick, safe and with as little pain as possible. I was glad to see that his list of items to bring included pre-procedure pain relief and on going pain relief. Eventhough we requested the non-ceremonial circumcision, as we are evangelical Christians, he was more than happy to accommodate our request to do it on the 8th day. He was kind, courteous, informative and friendly during the entire course. We are so happy that we decided to go with Aubie instead of the hospital.
Thank you Aubie.
― The Redman family.
We were extremely pleased with the love and care that Dr. Diamond put into his work in neonatal circumcision. Being first time parents both my husband and I were nervous about the procedure. Dr. Diamond exceeded our expectations in enabling us to feel comfortable and confident before, during and after the procedure. We would like to take this opportunity to commend you on the quality of care you put into providing us with information prior to the procedure, the comfort you instilled during the procedure and the helpful follow up you provided post procedure. If my husband and I were to have another boy in the future we would not hesitate to come back to Dr. Diamond.
― Julie and Keith Branning
Dr. Diamond was recommended to me by my Family Doctor for my son’s circumcision. Dr. Diamond was efficient and he explained exactly what would occur at every step. He answered all of our questions patiently and eased our mind throughout the process. Our son showed little sign of discomfort afterward and healed quickly. What impressed me most was Aubie’s gentleness with our son. It is obvious that he is very comfortable with babies and showed extreme care for our child during the procedure and for several days following. I happily recommend his services.
― Camille Broughton
We are incredibly grateful to Dr. Diamond for the great job he did. He was great to deal with and we were very appreciative of his follow-up. Winston (our son) seemed to be totally happy throughout the entire process.
We want to thank you for performing Callan’s Bris yesterday and for being the vehicle for which Callan’s Jewish life will begin. I don’t think I was prepared for the emotional toll a Bris can have on a new mother, but you provided so much comfort and guidance that it made the experience more of a spiritual one than an emotional one. I can’t thank you enough! Callan is doing well–we’re giving him a little extra TLC, but otherwise he hasn’t needed anything else. Many thanks again,
― Rachel, Steve and Callan
First, Robin and I have to thank you for an incredible job today. Not just the actual deed but your walking us through the steps beforehand, making sure we knew what to do after, and everything in between. It was an absolute pleasure and you managed to make something that was giving us a fair bit of anxiety memorable, meaningful and enjoyable. Thanks!
Second, Max seems to be adjusting well to his new look. I gave him some infant Tylenol and he’s hardly cried all day.
We just wanted to thank you for your professionalism, kindness, and efficiency at our son’s circumcision. It was fast, very well done and is healing nicely. It’s nice to see a Doctor who is passionate about what he does and who is very warm and friendly with the family and baby. If we have another boy we would call you again and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to circumcise their son.
― From Sara & Abdul
Dr. Diamond was AMAZING! Our little boy barely shed a tear. It’s 4 days later now and he is pretty much all healed up with a beautiful pisher to show off to the world! After hearing nightmare stories about other people’s experiences, this was certainly a nice surprise for us. Dr. Diamond made the Brit Milah ceremony a truly memorable experience for our family. His bedside manner is second to none. We highly recommend using his services and have nothing but the utmost respect for Dr. Diamond,
— Joel & Kim
Thank you so much Dr. Diamond. It was a real pleasure meeting you. You are professional and talented. Thank you so much for your services. We are definitely glad we chose you to handle such a delicate matter. All the very best.
― Lauren & Anthony
Dear Dr. Diamond,
Firstly, we want to thank you so much for your kindness, warmth, professionalism and for your personalized bris for Natey today. You took the time to make everyone feel included and calm and for that we are so grateful.
Also wanted to let you know the diaper changes are going well and nothing of concern has emerged thanks to your expertise!
Nate’s temperament also seems “so far, so good” and he slept a lot and has eaten well today.
Our sincerest thank you,
Lawrence & Belinda Levy
My wife and I were looking for a Doctor to complete the circumcision for our son, and our prayers were answered. Dr. Diamond helped us understand the process from start to finish. He provided detailed instructions on what to expect before, during and after the operation. Dr. Diamond also followed up via phone and email to make sure there were no issues. Dr. Diamond is truly the “King of Circumcision”. We will definitely refer our family and friends to him!
Ramie & Adele (January 2015)
We just wanted to thank you again for such an amazing experience; we are in awe of how that went. Our best friends have a son whom was going to be circumcised this week, However, after speaking with us, they are adamant that they want to bring the baby to you now…..Can you see them this week?
Roxanne Hill & Craig West
We cannot thank you enough for the incredible service you provided during the time of our bris. You truly went above and beyond the call of duty, making us feel so comfortable and well-looked after. You are amazing at what you do and we hope to share in more simchas together.
Wishing you the very best,
Erin, Sam, Max & Nathan Posner
Dr. Aubie Diamond did a fantastic job! He fully embraced both the medical and cultural procedure with equal attention. His demeanor is both professional and personable. He also made it clear that he was available for any questions or concerns. Our son was comfortable during the circumcision and didn’t cry during subsequent diaper changes. We highly recommend Dr. Diamond whether for a Bris or for a medical procedure with no cultural or religious affiliation. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Dr. Diamond for our son.
H. Beck and J. Vieweg (March 2015)
Hello Dr. Diamond,
Daniel is doing awesome!
His wound is healing and we don’t have any issues so far. We would like to thank you for your professional yet very comforting and friendly service. We were surprised to see how fast the procedure went and how fast he has healed.
We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends and maybe we will see you again in next couple of years.
Erica & Shawn (April 2015)
Rylan is doing great! Everything looks as it should. Herit & I would like to thank you again. Your sincerity and enthusiasm throughout the service added value to the evening that is thoroughly appreciated. It would not have been as amazing without you. A pleasure!
Danielle & Herit (May 2015)
Hello Dr. Diamond,
Thank you again for your services and very professional circumcision.
Seeing how nicely and quickly my son has healed, I know I made the right decision.
Anat & Laszlo (Oct 2015)
It has now been over two weeks since Ari Michael’s circumcision — does time ever fly! I just wanted to drop you a quick note for one last check-in. Ari’s surgical site healed brilliantly, and he is doing so well. Thank you again for your wonderful service to our family. Your warm and calm demeanour really helped ease this mommy’s concerns. I will definitely recommend you to friends!
Melissa and Daniel (Oct 2015)
Dear Dr. Diamond,
Thank you so much for coming over to our house to perform the circumcision. We appreciated your passion and calm reassuring demeanor, and also the fact that you were so meticulous and thorough in all the details, including the procedure and aftercare. You are the best! Baby and parents are doing well.
Nene (Happy Grandmother)
Hello Dr Diamond,
I would like to apologize for the delay in sending this, it has been on my mind since the day of Jacob’s bris.
You are a true professional, you made Mark and I feel very comfortable and secure having you as our Mohel. You answered all our questions and felt you genuinely cared about any of our questions/concerns. Aside from the pre and post care, you made our day and Jacob’s celebration one to remember.
Attached is a picture of the moment that takes my breath away. You were amazing and would not have wished for anything more or anyone else.
Thank you for all that you did with such gentle care.
Have an amazing week and THANK YOU Doc!
Renee, Mark & Jacob (Feb 2016)
Dr. Diamond recently conducted a Bris and baby naming ceremony for our grandson at our condo unit in Halifax (Nova Scotia). As soon as we spoke with him on the phone, his calm and confident voice, as well as his experience and informative website (with videos), convinced us that he was the appropriate Mohel. Aubie communicated with both of us, as well as with our son and daughter-in-law, in a timely and responsible manner on several occasions. He conducted the Bris competently, providing commentary about the significance of the event. Our grandson did not even whimper. Aubie’s humour and calmness put our 25 attending friends and family at ease. Many commented afterward about the smoothness of the ceremony. As well, Aubie phoned to follow up on our grandson, who healed rapidly. Our entire family would highly recommend Aubie.
Stephen and Judith Bates
Our Midwife had recommended Dr. Diamond’s in-home circumcision services. We were apprehensive about the procedure, but Dr. Diamond put us at ease with the very first phone call. We knew intuitively that he would be the best person to do this for our son, given his decades of experience and professional, calming explanation. The procedure itself was so quick and painless, the recovery went very well and we really appreciated Dr. Diamond’s follow up with us during the post-op period. We are grateful to have found Dr. Diamond, and we would recommend him to anyone planning to have their son circumcised!
