14/03/14 1 1 4 4 I went to Dr. Budning's office today with my toddler for his strabimus. It took me 3 months to get the app't. When I arrived I was told the app't had been re-scheduled weeks ago and a msg had been left for me. I never received any messages. I had read on this site about this happening to someone so I specifically called during the week to confirm the appointment. Surprise, surprise no call back. Honestly I am so fed up...this guy might be a good doctor but from what I see from his staff and office I am so reluctant to put my son in his hands. If he is truly the only pediatric opthomologist specializing in strabismus in Ontario he surely can't be hard up for cash. Hire some decent, competent staff!!! Get some nice furniture in your office and how bout a few toys as well since apparently the wait is horrendous? Is our time not worth as much?? I hate that I have no choice but to see him. I literally wanted to cry today as I was so looking forward to some answers finally, but clearly it was not to be :(  Respond

05/03/13 1 1 1 1 I was referred to see Dr. Budning and waited 3 mths for my appt date. When I went in for my 1st appt the secretary was very cold and mean, I stood there for a few minutes without her even acknowledging me, I had to say something in order to get her attention; not a good impression on my first visit. 2nd, I didn't even see Dr. Budning, I seen an associate, some Oriental guy. Who was not the specialist and he said he would have to discuss his findings with Dr. Budning and someone would call me back. After 4 hours in this office and not getting the proper treatment, I was upset. But I thought just be patient, don't judge to quickly. So I got the call and I was told Dr. Budning would see me in another 3 mths, upsetting yet again. 3 mths later I go to my appt and his office is so packed pts r sitting on the flr, I was like, who have I been referred 2? So I see Dr. Budning and all he does is give me a rx for glasses and tells me nothing is wrong. When I know something is definitely wrong.

20/12/12 4 4 5 5 Lived with right eye turning in all my life.used to look abnormal. Consulted lots of opthamologists in the past both in Canada and abroad but they all refused to perform surgery due to risk of double vision. Not only I got his appointment in weeks time but he performed surgery just 12 days after the consultation at his office in Mississauga. I am so happy my strabismus surgery was done just three days after my birthday.thanks for such a great gift on my Bray. Can't express my feelings in words. Keep up the good work Dr Budning  Respond

28/07/12 3 3 1 2 He smokes and doesn't wash his hands afterwards. He was touching my eyelids to open them up to take a closer look in my eye (I have strabismus or "lazy eye") and I could smell cigarettes on his fingers as he was touching my eyes! It was disgusting. Kind of tainted the whole experience. I asked about eye training exercises and he wasn't helpful at all and had no resources to offer on the subject. Never went back.  Respond

27/03/12 5 5 5 5 After seeing a few different surgeons and under going many different tests for my adult strabismus. I was told that nothing could be done and that it would cause more harm than good if they were to operate on it. Dr. Budning was the only person that offered any help. After 1 visit, he determined that surgery was required and that there was a very good chance that he could correct it. I am now 3 weeks post op and I am very pleased with the results. After 24 years with strabismus, I thank Dr. Budning for helping me :)  Respond

Always late w/ appointments. Staff who schedules patients are very disorganized. Gave us an appt. once and when we got there, the office was closed! Didn't even call us to reschedule. I had to call them. He got upset when we asked to be referred back to our original opthalmologist. He even told his staff to tell us that once we leave as his patient, we can never go back to him again (Huh?)...but we still left anyway.  Respond

13/03/11 4 5 5 5 Another very satisfied patient here. Surgery just two days ago for strabismus resulting from thyroid eye disease (Graves). Absolutely first class care from Andrew Budning and Credit Valley Hospital. Yesterday (on a Saturday) his office was full of smiling, happy kids and people of all ages who were part of the Friday surgery group, returning a day later for post-op check-up. Incredible to see first hand how this surgery can be so positively life altering. I have read a number of negative comments here about waiting times. Patients, Parents, pack a snack, bring a book, however long it may take to get through this waiting room will be the best quality time you can spend in the treatment of your strabismus or that of your child.  Respond

17/02/11 5 4 5 5 Dr Budning is a MIRACLE WORKER. After several corrective surgeries he has successfully aligned seriously misaligned eyes (both) caused by thyroid eye disease. Condition was serious, and we sought several opinions throught Ontario before being referred to Dr Budning. All offered no hope. Dr Budning inspired confidence and hope with our first meeting, and has continued to with every meeting. His bedside manner is exemplary. But better yet....he delivered what he said he could. He has surrounded himself with competent caring staff. The hospital experiences were better than we expected. We consider him a miracle worker....no wonder people come from far and near to be under his care!!!  Respond

14/10/10 1 1 1 2 My son has been a patient of his for more than 10 years and his eye is still very bad even after surgery. Trying to get an appointment is next to impossible, waiting a minimum of 3 hours, surly receptionist(s)...they're almost nasty when you go to check in...then wait, and wait... for his assistant to do the examination and tell me that the doctor will let me know what's going on, but Dr. Budning doesn't talk as far as I know. In 10 years, I haven't heard him utter more than 10 words. My son's lazy eye isn't much improved, I think the surgery was done too early, and the prescription at one point was far too weak - his eye actually got worse. I inquired about getting my son's records b/c Dr. Budning seems far too busy and I should perhaps find someone else, but the receptionist just told me she was too busy for this, got up and walked away. He may be the best there is-medically-but he and his office are not 'healers'  See Responses

09/04/09 4 4 5 5 Excellent Doctor. I am 36 years old and have been told all my life I could not have binocular vision or straight eyes. Dr. Budning straighten my eyes and restored near perfect binocular vision. I believe the ratings for staff is more for GPs and not for specialists. Some of the latter are in such demand that they must forego some administrative efficiency. This is required to see and do their best for as many patients as possible. The negative comments on Dr. Budning have nothing to do with his abilities. I would set outside in the rain to see this gifted physician. He changed my life.  Respond

03/04/09 5 5 5 5 I am 28 years old and had adult strabismus surgery with few cysts removed that developed inside corner of my eye. I was refferred to him by another opthamologist. I am sooo happy Dr Budning was my surgeon. Surgery was a huge Success he successfully removed cysts that were a results of a poor surgery. I developed ptosis from my previous bad surgery as well. I had an appointment booked in June to correct droopiness with another surgeon but I dont even need it anymore. he alligned my eye balls in a way that my eyelid is not droopy anymore. He doesn't talk too much but he knows exactly what he is doing. I cant recommend him enough. I would give him bonus points if I could. Strongly Recommended! I dont know why people complain about long wait time, I have been to his office about 5 times and I have been always out within 45 minutes max. I still agree that his receptionists are bit rude but who cares about them. Best time for appointment is in morning.  Respond

08/12/08 2 2 3 3 No interpersonal skills. Staff are not professional. Long wait times. For my daughter's second scheduled visit with Budning (referred by Sick Kids) the staff scheduled her to see another doctor without informing me! I drove 2 hrs to get there and they still had me believe that I was going to see Budning! It was finally revealed (seams as thought they were trying to keep a secret that he was not in) by the other doctor that that the reason I was seeing her was because that Budning was called for an emergency operation. After the visit with the other doctor I made an appointment to see Dr Budning or so I thought untill I checked a few days after only to find out that I was again scheduled to see this other doctor! I am still trying to get the appointment! They never answer their phones (apparently very busy)! For a guy that bills OHIP almost $100,000 / month you would think he can afford more competent staff!  Respond

26/11/08 1 1 1 1 The first time I saw Dr. Budning, I was furious. My son's appointment was for 8:10am and we saw him at 10:30am...why did we have to wait so long when the office opens at 8am! We have been going there for 3 years and I dread that appointment everytime. The room is crappy, there's are no toys or books, the TV is too high, the office staff are extremely rude and they never answer the phone, you have to wait 3 hours and Dr. Budning sees you for 2-5 minutes, and the worst thing about all of this is that THEY DON'T CARE! None of the staff know how to talk to or deal with small children. Too bad we are forced to spend our vauable time and money on these people. Dr. Budning and his staff may be educated but they need a lesson in manners and how to communicate to their patients.  Respond

04/05/08 1 1 1 1 This doctor kept us waiting for 3.5 hrs with a child. He gave us exactly 2 minutes of his time and tried to push us out the door without speaking to us (other than to tell us to come back again later). He had absolutely no clue about the disease my son is likely affected by (gave us wrong information), did not return our calls or e-mails and did not bother to follow up with the referral than was required (we had to arrange it through another doctor, since 37 phonecalls to Dr. Budning's office yielded nothing). It's possible that Dr. Budning may be a good specialist in certain fields, but he certainly was not suitable for this particular disorder and he should have said so immediately and referred us to someone with knowledge, rather than waisted our time. He and his staff were rude, inefficient and ineffective. My advice: find someone else!  Respond

Was SOOOO happy when my son was able to return to his normal othamologist. I think I would rather pay to see a less-in-demand specialist in the US than endure that service again.

04/02/08 3 2 5 5 We have been taking our 4 year old daughter to Dr. Budning for the past 2 years. At first, like almost every other parent's comment below, we were appalled by the wait times, the discourteous administrative staff and the impersonal and seemingly rushed visits with Dr. Budning. But he is an incredible doctor and has "warmed" up during our past few visits. I've noticed an absolutely significant improvement in the wait times to see him. On several occasions we ended up having to wait out in the hall or down in the cafeteria due to a lack of space in the waiting room for 2+ hours (actually 3 hours for one visit) but this has definitely changed over our last 3 visits. We've managed to get in and our in an hour. I have total faith in Dr. Budning and his care. I was referred to him in 2005 by my family doctor on a Tuesday and Dr. Budning saw my daughter 3 days later. We were truly impressed. Thank you Dr. Budning for your expert and professional care for our daughter.  Respond

20/01/08 2 1 4 5 Dr.Budning is a very good doctor and has helped my son considerably. BUT....his office staff needs a lesson in politeness. They seem uninterested in their jobs and impatient with the clients. The orthoptists that work with Dr.Budning are very impersonal and don't seem to know how to deal with children (even though that is the majority of the clientele) Both are very skittish and get frustrated when kids don't cooperate. The wait time is ridiculous and far too long when you have a young child as the patient. I don't care how good of a doctor it is, they do not have the right to monoplize someone's time like that....appointment time 10:30 - seen by doctor 1:10....unacceptable! My son has missed full days of school because of an appontment, when he could have just missed the morning if they had been on-time. Although I appreciate everything Dr.Budning has done for us, I hate going to his over crowded office and dread the appointments when they come up.  Respond

17/12/07 2 1 4 5 I saw him the fist time as an emergency patient (sent to see him by ER at Credit Valley Hospital). He doesn't have much personality, but he was very helpful at my emerg visit and for all follow-up appts. His assistant (Teresa?) was terrific. Staff is obviously under a huge amount of stress. There are very few ophthamologists in Ontario, so I understand that he is completely overbooked. I always felt bad seeing the parents with small kids with such a long wait. Dr. Budning wanted me to do all my yearly exams with him, but I felt like I was taking a valuable and coveted spot, so I just see my optometrist (and haven't had a recurrence of my original problem - iritis). The only thing I didn't like about Dr. Budning was the way he did his OHIP billing while I was still in the exam chair and asking questions.  Respond

03/12/07 4 4 5 5 I found Dr. Budnig very professional, blunt to the point, honest and extremely talented and for this I rate him excellent 10+. Yes his office is extremely busy, but I was always told to expect to be there 3-4 hours. His time is precious so I went prepared with a list of questions, of which he answered every one, He is shy but very talented and confident when it comes to explaining the surgery, procedures, etc. My little girl had double stribismus and thanks to Dr. Budnig her eyes are now straight all the time. I found the trip to the hospital very low stress, you can tell they do this all the time but the nurses and surgical team members were all very happy and approachable. I would reccommend this doctor to anyone, especially nervous parents. I do not regret at all taking the time to see him. I did not find the parking expensive and from where we live 2 hour drive we have to take the day off work anyway so we make a day of it. We are luck to have His Talent in our backyard.  Respond

03/10/07 2 3 5 5 My son was referred to Dr. Budning and we had 3 appointments with him before surgery this past january. He is an extremely knowledgeable and thorough doctor and has worked wonders on my son's eyes. He only wears glasses now for computer or reading!! The surgery to correct strabismus was very successful. We drive 3.5 hours each way to see him and the wait was just as long. I fortunately anticipated this and did not bring my younger children. Even with movies, they would never survive that long of a wait!!! Nor would I!!The reception can be rude and not very understanding and Dr. Budning is quiet but you have to be an advocate and demand a few more minutes of his time to have your questions and concerns answered.I believe he is just so focused on the children and their individual care and there are so many clients to see,that his bedside manner and personable skills fall short.He is the best and people travel from all over for his care.

15/08/07 1 1 4 5 The wait time is horrendous. Especially with small children involved, they dont have the patience for it, and alot of people cant book a day off work for it. We dealt with Dr Budning on my sons first appointment, he had a poor bedside manner, especially when dealing with children. Since then weve been seeing the woman Dr in his office. I would rather have to deal with Dr Budning, because she is by far the WORST when it comes to bedside manner. She is beyond rude with my son, and myself for no reason. I dread his upcoming appointments more than I dread a trip to the dentist. I dont care how much education they have, or how much of a specialist they are considered, they are dealing with children as well as adults, and a little bedside manner goes a long way.

04/06/07 1 3 5 I think that Dr. Budning excels in the operating room. I didn't see him smile till my little boy was being carried off to his operation. Dr. Budning was warm, friendly, smiling, making small talk with staff. The most interesting thing was his goofy, colorful hat he wore, maybe to help cheer up the kids. A completely different Dr. I wanted to comment about the wait times... After surgery we were told to come back the next day, for an appt in his office. I hated to come back, but they had to fit all that days surgical patients in to the next day. This would help explain why the wait is so extreme. Also he takes on emergency patients all the time. Children who need to be seen YESTERDAY - tumours, eye injuries. He takes them in immediately. And since he is the best around, they are sent to him. If you go to his website you can read one heart wrenching story. Dr. Budning did say "we MAKE time for our surgical kids". This does create a massive wait time, but there are some reasons why.  Respond

After a few years, we found another doctor and when I signed the transfer papers and asked the secretary to send our records to the new doctor, they never arrived. I called to check on when they would get to the new doctor and the secretary was quite rude and said she was too busy to worry about trivial things such as paperwork! Our new doctor never did receive the files so had to start from scratch.

My daughter had one operation on her eyes when she was 4. She is now going on 8 and doing great. There is a mall across the street. We park there, walk to the office and find out how long it will be-then we go back to the mall looking around to help pass the time.

08/05/07 1 3 5 WoW the wait time is incredible. I wish there was someway that the receptionist could warn you ahead of time. The first time i went there, i waited 3 1/2 hours !! I brought 2 young children and had to go and buy food as i didnt realize I would spend my entire afternoon there. The first thing that caught my eye was a sign beside the receptionist saying "attention ! if you are rude or disrespectful to our staff you will be asked to leave the building and never retur ( cant remember if that was word for word) well that in itself tells ya what its like in there day to day. Why do they overbook? I dont get it. If you have a choice.. book the FIRST appt.. u wont have such a long wait time. Now, to say the truth.. Dr. Budning is great no doubt !

30/03/07 1 3 5 It is true that the wait times are just ridiculous. On one occasion his small office was so busy that we had to sit on the floor outside (with others) and wait for an hour. However, he certainly is the best at what he does. Our son had strabismus and with eyeglasses making no improvement, we pushed for surgery. The surgery wait was short and the operation was a great success. His bedside manner is pretty non-existent, but then again given the volume of people he sees each day (on top of performing surgery) it's no surprise that he doesn't have time to sit and chat.  Respond

13/03/07 1 5 5 Dr. Budnig is very capable but others are correct in saying he is far too overbooked. Wait times in his office are ridiculously long.

I asked the receptionist if I could rebook since the wait was so long, but she was rude and said that an hour to an hour and a half wait is typical. We were not warned of this when I made the appointment and I came with my 3 small children (3, 2 and 7 months).

01/03/07 2 3 5 I was a little surprised by the first response about Dr. Budning. Yes, the wait can be extreme. The rooms are small, and he sure could use a much larger facility. (He deserves a larger place). He can come across a little cold or uncaring as the first response said, BUT he knows exactly what he is doing, knows exactly what he is talking about, and has more experience then any of us could even imagine. I wouldn't trust my son's eyes to any other doctor. There are many personalities in the world. I would rather a quiet doctor, who has full trust in what he was doing, with a great record, deep in thought, operate on my sons eyes, then one who put on a great show for us, with a lesser record. There are not many doctors out there doing what Dr. Budning is doing, and even fewer who are great at it. I am over all happy when I leave. The only reason is because he is self confident. Very self confident. Parents need that when their childs sight is the topic of conversation.  Respond

15/02/07 1 1 2 I have heard that this doctor is good but my comfort level with him was based on the info others gave me about him. My impression of him is that he only cares about money. His patients are all kids but he does not make them feel comfortable. He only looks at their eyes and does not say a word to them. I was not happy. If you go to his office except long wait. He has no people skills. He is rude and does not even acknowledge your presence when you are sitting in his office. Dr. Budning you probably help alot of people but what is the point if the only thing they remember from a visit with you is lack of interest,communication and affection. You even took a personal call when I was in your office without consideration that i was waiting in your office for 1.5 hrs. Overall, I beleive that your young patients deserve some respect and need to be acknowledged rather than being treated like just another eye you looked at in a days work.  Respond
