Dr. David Climenhaga's Ratings
I had PRK surgery in 2013 and about 3 months after my surgery my eyes had only improved by approximately 50% of what they were initially (From around -7 to 3.5ish). After 1 year I went back in for a consult regarding an enhancement surgery, however when I asked Dr. Climenhaga for the reason as to why the surgery went so poorly the first time he was unable to provide me with any reason. He was incredibly rude and seems to have some sort of God complex. I will pay full price with another doctor to have this surgery before I go back to him for the significantly discounted enhancement surgery. It is not worth it. I would strongly recommend finding a better doctor than him if you are considering PRK surgery. Since surgery my eyes have been incredibly dry and I have a hard time wearing contact lenses (he also couldn't explain this).
I just had two cataract/eye lens surgies in the last month. This Dr. was recommended to me by my eye dr. I am very pleased the staff and professionalism and Dr. Climenhagen. The procedure was quick and effortless.I was a very nervous patient and I'm glad I put my trust in the dr. and his staff. The Dr and his staff are very professional and thoughtfull. They answered any question I had and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend this Dr. I was treated at his office on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton Alberta.
In January of 1997, this man gave me back my sight at the age of 13 in my right eye. No one at the U of A believed I would be able to see out of that eye after my accident, he chose to believe differently. I now have a lens implant in that eye, the iris has healed and ironically see better out of that eye than my left (uninjured) eye. This man gave me my sight back, I couldn't ask for more than that.
I saw Dr. D. Climenhaga and I had the best experience. Staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, polite and professional. Surgery was successful, everything went well. If you follow the instructions and the advice post surgery you will have great success. My eyes are perfect now! No dryness, no funky stuff happening... over all fantastic! why did I wait so long to do this?? I 100% recommend!
Had surgery done in 2000. After a year I needed glasses again! Went back in few years, said not to have surgery again, said I would still need glasses. Told me to come back in a year, but guess what, HE WAS TOO BUSY PERFORMING SURGERIES TO SEE ME AGAIN! I would NOT recommend him, for this reason, too busy to do a follow up assessment. Took the money & ran. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, NO POST OPERATIVE CARE AT ALL.
I was told by several specialists,that Dr D Climenhaga could 'thread a ship into a bottle' (re: my eyes). Suffice it to say, that I've since recommended MANY other patients to him; but MOST especially my Mama. And gawd knows that ANYBODY who causes my Mama pain, will be summarily 'kicked in the shins':) Gladly, Dr C is amazingly 'bruise free'.
Excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable and helpful - corrective eye surgery explanations were related to everyday situations. PRK surgery recovery time is lengthy (6 weeks before I didn't have to stress my eyes to read the fine print), but it does come as advertised.
Would not recommend the PRK surgery. Post surgery, my lifestyle changed dramatically. My eyes are tired after being awake for 6 hours and I can not function as a normal human being. Consider the inconvenience of glasses a blessing compared to what I have gone through. DONT DO IT!!!
