12/05/14 5 5 5 5 Just had my laser surgery with Dr Sanghera this weekend. I am very impressed with his staff and his polite bedside manner. It was very reassuring how he calmly guided me thru the operation. I am even more impressed with how well I can see less than a week after surgery. I would fully recommend him to anyone considering laser surgery.  Respond

04/02/14 5 5 5 5 My optometrist really worried me when she told me about glaucoma and so I was sent to see this MD on my request to see a specialist. I think he clued into my anxiety because he was very nice and explained the tests I had done earlier in the day. I did feel at ease through his conversation and bedside manner. I do NOT have glaucoma! Rita

30/01/14 1 1 3 3 As other clients had mentioned earlier, he had also cancelled the two appointments almost in a raw without a prior notice, but I only got to know the cancellation when I arrived his office. The staffs told me that he had cancelled the appointment in the morning of the day and also they had wrong contact informations about me over and over again.

29/12/13 5 4 5 5 I was sent to see him after my first cataract procedure was messed up by someone else. I could not see clearly. He did not reassure me that he could do much to fix it but said he would try. For 2 weeks after his surgery I been waiting for improvement. Finally my vision is now clear after patiently waiting for swelling to clear up. I am very satisfied. He was honest and the results are a pleasant surprise.  Respond

14/12/13 5 5 5 5 I just wanted to let everyone who reads these postings to know how enthusiastic I am with my recent laser eye surgery. As everyone one always says, I should have got it done sooner. The level of crispness and clarity of my vision after surgery is unparalleled. Dr Sanghera was informative and his easygoing nature made me feel at relaxed during my procedure. I would recommend laser surgery and Dr Paul to anyone.  Respond

12/12/13 4 3 5 5 Very busy but also very good. Waited 3 months for an appointment and had to wait for over an hour in the office. He was worth it; informative and thorough. Let me ask questions. Handsome too!  Respond

06/11/13 5 5 5 5 I was told I had cataracts and have been to 2 previous ophthalmologists who failed to adequately inform me of the severity of my disorder and rushed me into booking for surgery. He was my third consultation. I was very pleased with his manner and ability to communicate effectively. I was given the time to ask questions and all options were thoroughly explained. I was very happy with our meeting.

30/10/12 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr.Sanghera a little while back. I had a lot of pain in my eye. There was a bump in my lower lid and it was very irritating me. He saw me right away and I really liked that about him. He did not rush me, he sat there and explained exactly what I had to do, and what drops would make my problem go away. Its hard to find good doctors who actually care for you and listen to your problem, some of them just treat you as a number. I did not feel that way at all with Dr. Sanghera. I recommend him to everyone. He is a great Opthalmologist. Very smart and good looking as well. :)

01/10/12 5 1 1 3 Dr. Sanghera is an unprofessional doctor who fails to show up to his appointments. He cancelled two appointments in a row - both less than half an hour before my scheduled appointment. The receptionists weren't able to justify his absence - in fact, they themselves were disgusted by his absence as he did not even call in to let them know that he wouldn't be showing up to work. Unless you've got the flexibility to keep getting your appointments rescheduled, then I would highly recommend that you DO NOT go to Dr. Sanghera.  Respond

08/06/12 5 5 5 5 I am so happy that I did the laser eye surgery, the standard one. I was so afraid before, but everything was great. I did it yesterday downtown Toronto. All stuff there were so nice to me and they answered all my questions. Doctor Sanghera had a lot of patience with me and it wasn't painful at all. Just a little bit of stress from my side. Today, 1 day after I did my first revision and everything is all right, I am 20/20, I can see in HD :) just a little bit blurry when reading close, but is is normal. I recommend Dr. Sanghera 100%. No place to be worried or afraid. I am happy :) Jana

01/05/12 5 4 5 5 I had a GREAT experience at Lasik MD!! The staff there are amazing! They are so knowledgeable and really helped to calm me down because I was sooooo nervous for surgery. The surgeon, Dr. Sanghara, was also very nice and reassured me the whole way through. And the result? I'm 20/20!! No glasses! Sunglasses!! Swimming!! Serious!! Get it done if you're thinking about laser. It's true what all the other people said before I got it done. It truly changes your life for the better.  Respond

19/03/12 1 1 1 3 My pupils were chemically dilated by Sanghera for a "routine examination." Sanghera said they would return to normal within 2 hours...They remained dilated for several days! This is a very dangerous predicament to be in. My 20/20 vision began deteriorating (especially in my stronger eye) immediately after this incident and continues to decline even though I never had eye problems previously. I returned to Sanghera's office to determine which drug/chemical he had placed in my eyes. His staff had no record of what they used! Sanghera could not explain himself or offer any reason, whatsoever, as to his staff's failure to keep medical records. Avoid Sanghera like the plague. He refuses to be accountable and should have his medical license taken from him. He is a coward at heart.  Respond

24/08/11 5 4 5 5 I Saw Dr. Sanghera in the eye clinic at MtSinai and I must say he makes the wait worth it. He is very knowledgable and very easy to listen to. I was very attentive while he was speaking and taking the time to explain my diagnosis. Dr. Sanghera is a very handsome, young Doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.  Respond

21/08/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sanghera was good in his assessment. He would examine well the chart and would explain thoroughly the condition of my eyes. His approach was non-intimidating and was open to further questions and clarifications. He is efficient in his work. I also observed Dr. Sanghera's good gestures to other patient's as well. He would try to make the patients as comfortable as possible by verbalizing each step of the procedure. In general, he is a good surgeon both to the patients and his staff as well.  Respond

09/05/11 5 4 5 5 Polite and efficient young doctor. Seems to know what he's talking about. Overheard his other patients in the waiting room and they all seem to be happy with their surgeries. Gets along well with his staff who are also very polite. He wears jeans to work! My generation has a different definition of business casual.  Respond

07/05/11 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Sanghera for my cataract surgeries. He was kind, polite and knowledgeable. He discussed surgery in detail with me. I was amazed at my results! I have worn glasses all my life, however Dr. Sanghera was able to fix my cataracts and I now see perfectly clear without glasses. It's amazing. Highly recommended surgeon.  See Responses

21/01/11 5 5 5 5 I have been thinking about having laser eye surgery for a couple of years now and finally got the courage to get my eyes checked to see if I’m a good candidate for the surgery. I went to a few clinics in the GTA, however one clinic stood out to me more than the rest. At Lasik MD, the staff was so comforting and knowledgeable and answered all my questions and concerns about laser eye surgery, enough so that I decided to do the surgery. My surgeon was Dr. Paul Sanghera; he was so reassuring and really took the time to make sure I was comfortable with the surgery. The surgery was very quick and he talked me through the whole thing. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sanghera and Lasik MD to a family member, thank you Lasik MD!  Respond
