Dr. Samir Lalani's Ratings
Dr. Lalani consulted me on a recent foot injury. He explained the physiology of my injury in understandable terms and provided rationale for the care plan, and clear instructions about at-home care and follow up steps. He was professional and efficient in his assessment, and took time to address my questions and concerns. I also appreciated that there was little waiting time upon arrival to my appointment.
Surprisingly, many pacients found the receptionists as being wonderful. She might have had a bad day when I was over there. Totally disrespectful, almost to the limit of being cheeky! She didn't give me the information that I was asking for, she asked me to schedule an appointment, to pay 50 CAD and only AFTER that she will disclose the details of this doctor.
Since she wants to keep that as a secret, I found another orthotist/podiatrist in Calgary and I cancelled my appointment.
The doctor might be a great person, that's why I rated him with five stars, but for sure he needs to review the attitude of his front desk person. I am truly sorry I was not able to pass behind his Cerberus and to know him in person.
Dr. Lalani did my foot surgery in a private clinic the care was professional and results were excellent. When my pain was not controlled right after surgery I had the Dr.'s cell phone # and he order different medication. Dr. Lalani was carring and knowledgeable at all my visits post surgery
He is super nice, and that's what makes this review so hard. He is probably very helpful with typical feet stuff, like bunions, ingrown toe nails ect.., but he mismanaged my acute sports injury and I've now been put back on crutches and in a boot nearly 3 months later, after hobbling around in pain, with the possibility of surgery.
The office was extremely clean, the staff was friendly helpful and very very good with the kids. My 14 year old son had an infected ingrowen toe nail and Dr Lalani explained everything he was going to do and joked with Robert which helped Robert to be at ease with the procedure. I got lost getting to his office and was late for the appointment and the staff were very understanding and we did not have to wait at all. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Lalani.
Dr. Lalani did a great job of treating my 8 year old daughter's plantar warts. His manner is excellent and he had a very nervous child totally relaxed and calm through the whole treatment. It may have been the simplest preoccedure he did all day, but he was very pleasant and showed an interest in my daughter and her activities. He gave very clear and easy to understand instructions for my daughter and she really didn't mind her visit at all?
