24/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sabri is a very good doctor - he knows his stuff and is kind and caring. He takes the time to explain things and directs you where you need to go if there are things beyond his specialty. He has been a blessing for me !

31/10/13 4 4 5 5 Dr Sabri is very kind, genuine and knowledgeable. He is one of only two pediatric ophthalmologists in the area, which is why they are always very busy. He sees my son regularly and has always provided excellent care for my child. His clinic staff are always more than happy to fit me in at short notice without any problems. Dr Sabri goes out of his way to answer my questions and concerns. His clinic is very busy because he deals with emergencies as well the clinic patients every day. I cannot think of a better eye surgeon to look after my son's eyes.

19/09/13 1 1 1 1 I went for the check-up of my 6 yr old. The doc said she has got astigmatism making me feel sad to which the doc responded "I am not saying that ur child has got lung cancer or brain tumour. She has got glasses". Thatwas very rude on his part to talk like this. As a parent i should be concerned about my child even if it is a small bruise. Next my daughter wasnt very keen on wearing glases. He threatened her to lock her up upstairs in a room if she does'nt. Docs are always soo compassionate towards making their patients feel comfortable. How arrogant is that.! Very disappointing. He was saying she "WILL" have to undergo surgery for the very mild strabismus that she has which was so much in contradiction to Dr. Davis from Chicago who insisted that patching alone would do miracles and it surely did. From moderate strabismus she has reached now to very mild strabismus with excellent control. Pls do not go to Dr. Sabri. U will feel extremely laid down and treaded on. I am done with him.

12/03/13 4 5 5 5 Very kind and good with kids. I have a 4 year old boy and he was so good with him. He made me feel better about what was going on with comforting words. He truly treats the entire family, not just the patient.

28/01/13 5 4 5 5 Prior to seeing Dr. Sabri, I had read the negative reviews below and was a bit anxious going into the appointment. However, Dr. Sabri was fantastic with my 4 year old son. He made him feel comfortable and relaxed; his examination was very thorough and not rushed; and his observations were well relayed and easy to understand. His knowledge and expertise are self evident and I feel confident in his ability to treat my son. Both he and his staff definitely have a way with kids.

01/12/12 3 3 2 3 My 4 year old son and I saw Dr. Sabri for the first time in November 2012. First impression of him was negative, because the way he was speaking showed no genuine concern for my child. He is horrible with children, and he made my little boy feel very uncomfortable. He literally pulled the seat down, forcing my son to fall backwards, and drenched my sons face with eye drops. There was no attempt made to comfort my little boy, which was the first major red flag. My sons regular optometrist is amazing with kids, he speaks to children in a way that they will understand. He calls eye drops "magic rain drops" to make children feel better and less anxious about geting them in. But Dr. Sabri didn't care at all. He treated my boy like a guinea pig, and I'm furious about it! He's in it for the money... and that's it! Children to him are dollar signs, so please put effot and find another doctor for your child.

26/09/12 5 3 2 1 We took our daughter to see him, as a routine! check. Walked out with a prescription for glasses. Nothing unsual so far, BUT after we had her glasses made, we realised she can't see through them! So, I did a check at home, and I took her too see 2 other Doctors, and they BOTH told me she doesn't need glasses! I'm happy I took her to get second and third opinion, or he would've ruined her eyes with prescription glasses she doesn't need! Quite strong prescription, too. :( Very unhappy about him. So, my advise to anyone reading is: If you seehim, make sure you get a second opinion.  Respond

14/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sabri performed surgery on our son when he was 2 months old. He made us feel confident in his skills, and relieved a lot of stress and confusion from the situation. Unfortunately Dr. Sabri took a new job 2000kms away from us and we had to get a new Doctor closer to home. From our last visit 1.5 years ago with Dr. Sabri, we have missed his gentle and caring personality dearly. We would recommend Dr. Sabri to anyone. He was the solid rock that got us through the toughest situation we have had to face as parents. Our son has done amazing since the surgery and continues to have better sight everyday.  Respond

09/12/10 5 4 5 5 Dr. Sabri was very helpful and our 19 month old liked him. He took his time with our daughter and talked to us about our daughters treatment options. We were not rushed out and he listened to our concerns. We are very happy with the help we received from Dr. Sabri. We would not think twice about recommending him.  Respond

24/11/10 1 1 1 1 Very rude. Self-conceited. Yelled at nurse in front of me. Did not spend time with me or my child. Find another eye doc for your kids  See Responses
