02/12/13 5 4 1 2 I was disappointed on how much time he took to type up his findings on the computer, rather than talking to me about my eye problems. I didn't get any answers to my eye problems... I have problems otherwise I wouldn't have been sent to his office. I didn't feel I was taken seriously. How was he supposed to diagnosed something when he barely talked to me? He assumed situations instead of listening to my symptoms. The staff did more testing, spent more time with me than he ever did. I do not recommend if you are a new patient, especially if you were referred to by your physician.  Respond

19/09/13 5 5 5 5 I would have to say my overall experience was amazing!!! I was very happy to have Dr. Kassiri as my surgeon. I knew I was going to be in great hands. When I decided to go through with Lasik I was really wanting to have Dr.Kassiri as my surgeon from day one, just because I have heard so many good things about him. He has such wonderful bedside manners. He is just a very caring and knowledgeable doctor. Dr. Kassiri made me feel really comfortable in the OR, and the OR can be a pretty intimidating place. He just made me feel at ease.  Respond

27/09/12 5 1 1 2 Waited an hour and 20 minutes. No apologiea to acknowledgemen. He listened to my concerns but just gave me drops after a 3 minute discussion. Seriously, I understand you want to see as many patients as possible but I'd rather wait another week at home then over and hr in your office because you overbooked.  Respond

30/11/11 5 4 5 5 Dr Kassiri has been such an amazing help to my daughter (and me) who (with the help and direction of Dr Kassiri) was diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma, optic nerve drussen and intracranial hypertension. He has always taken the time for us in his very hectic, busy schedule and fit us in when my daughter was very sick. He works closely with her neurologist and other specialists to ensure the most timely and best approach for her care. He even called us at home several times to check-in on how my daughter was feeling. He is amazing and without him, I truly feel my daughter would still be struggling everyday with no answers or eventually would just go blind never knowing why. He works tirelessly for us and is always there when we need help. I highly recommend him and hopefully be lucky enough to have him as my daughters doctor for a very long time! Robbie Zopf  Respond

19/07/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kassiri performed my Lasik surgery at Lasik MD in Saskatoon in May 2011. I was extremely nervous going in for surgery, but the staff at the clinic were very kind and helpful. They talked me through the process beforehand, and gave me an anti-anxiety pill to help relax me. Dr. Kassiri was friendly and reassuring. He sat down with me to go over any questions or concerns I had before the surgery, and made sure that I wanted to proceed despite my anxiety. The procedure only took about ten minutes, and Dr. Kassiri explained everything as he went along, which made me feel comfortable through the process. When I had my follow up exam the morning after surgery, I was seeing 20/20 and everything was healing well. My vision in glasses or contacts was never as sharp as it is now. I could not have been happier than I was with Dr. Kassiri as my surgeon. He is knowledgeable and professional, and he has a wonderful bedside manner.  Respond

05/06/11 5 5 5 5 I had a Surgery Consult with Dr. Kam Kassiri, and I found him to be very thorough with everything. He answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable in the process. He told me I was a candidate and went over everything with me and made sure I understood as I was a hyperopic patient and could need an enhancement in the future. I found Dr. Kassiri to be very friendly and would trust him completely to have surgery with him.  Respond

17/02/11 5 4 5 5 I had a pre-operative care appointment at Saskatoon LasikMD, at which time I met Dr. Kam Kassiri. After examination, he explained to me even though I have a minimal prescription, I actually wasn’t a candidate for refractive eye surgery because I already see 20/20 without corrective eyewear, and 20/15 with my correction. He explained at LasikMD that there was a certain minimum and maximum prescription that they would not exceed for the health of your eye, and that I fell into that category. I appreciated his honestly for the safety of my health and not pushing me into having surgery. I have been passing the word on to anyone who mentions eye surgery and always suggest that they go to LasikMD. I explain to them even though I wasn’t a candidate for surgery they treated me as a person, explained everything to me and it didn’t cost me anything to find out if I could have surgery or not. The professionalism and comfort at the clinic was greatly appreciated. Thank-You  Respond

22/12/10 5 4 5 4 I met with Dr. Kassiri on Dec 18, 2010 to have my eyes checked. I was worked up by an OT first and then he called me in. He was very kind and asked me how I am doing. He looked over my chart at my results and asked me a few questions. He asked when I had my surgery, if I was happy with the results, and how I felt my vision was now. He then looked at my eyes through the slit lamp to see how they were doing up close. He told me that my eyes looked very good, and that my vision was excellent. He thanked me for coming in and told me to have a great day. I felt very comfortable and confident while with Dr. Kassiri, he has a great personality and is very reassuring.  Respond
