14/07/14 4 4 5 5 Previously I was assigned to an Eye Doctor that scheduled a surgery during the time for my appointment. I requested another Specialist and Dr Fiander has been seeing me for the last two years. Efficient and business like he has provided medication that has helped my condition and I would highly recommend him.  Respond

26/04/14 5 4 5 5 I find Dr. Fiander very professional and kind when he speaks with you. He knows what he is doing and I am happy to have him as my Specialist. He always answers whatever questions I may have and yes he is busy but takes whatever time needed to answer them thouroughly.  Respond

13/12/13 4 3 5 5 Dr.Fiander is a valuable resource to his field, he has several tools he uses to measure various parts of the eye. The appointments go quickly, with you in and out of different rooms (herded along with 20 other people) havign drops, measurements or doing eye tests. Finally you see the Doctor. He is quick to explain / update you on your eyes or your progress. I find that if I have questions, have them ready so you can get them all in quickly-one thing I appreciate, if Dr.Fiander doesn't know the answer - he will get it for you, following up within a few days. I don't like how scheduling works once you are further into the process, two appts, one for your measurements and another, later to see the doctor. You get eye drops at both which means two days of sensitive eyes with light sensitivity (makes it hard for people trying to schedule leave from work)plus paying for parking two times is a pain. There is no need to make this a two trip appt. other than dr. availability.  Respond

01/08/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Fiander is a jewel amongst ophthalmologists. He is always up to date with new procedures, and is constantly upgrading his considerable skills. He works both in Windsor and Detroit, and with the little time he has left, he also teaches and gives lectures. His staff are highly trained and friendly. The office runs like clockwork, even with constant emergencies to contend with - one of which recently was me. He saved my sight after a very difficult retinal detachment, and for that, I will always remain grateful.

04/12/12 4 5 5 5 I trust Dr. Fiager's practice implicitly with my eyesight - one of the anatomy's most precious components. Aside from one employee who is a bit impatient/rude, I found in-general the staff are friendly and professional. They are also clearly working in a challenging, highly organized office. So cut 'em some slack. It is usually busy at Windsor Retina Centre, but the place amazingly runs like a swiss clock. If your appt. is for 10:00 you will be seen at 10:00 (or pretty close to it). How many specialists can boast that kind of punctuality, even when the waiting room is packed? Dr. Fiager himself, a frequent target of criticism for not being social enough, does indeed take the time to satisfactorily explain the results of your consult/test. I can't say I felt "rushed" by him. He is all business, true, but that's the way I like it. With specialists in high demand in Windsor, there is simply no time to talk about last night's hockey game at your consult.

16/11/11 1 4 4 4 No problems with Dr. but staff rude and uncooperative.My elderly father had an appointment but needed to update his medical history and personal information since he was moved to a nursing home. The staff didn't seem to have a clue on how to do this. They refused to call the nursing home to have his information faxed to them ( this would have taken a minute)and would not help me at all.I have never been to a doctors office before where the staff was so rude and incompetent. They treated me like I was from another planet. Very strange and uncomfortable experience.  Respond

11/11/11 3 4 4 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Fiander since April 2011. He has been very informative when answering my questions and though the practice is extremely busy I found him to be very thorough. I can honestly say that I have never waited more than 20 minutes for my appointment - hardly a wait at all compared to other doctors...Thank you Dr.Fiander for my sight!  Respond

01/12/10 4 3 5 5 He has helped me with issues with my retinas. He may be rushed sometimes but i really like him. He will answer any questions you have, you just have to ask them! Sometimes emergency patients come in that need to be dealt with first so that is why there is occassionally a longer wait.  Respond

29/07/10 4 4 5 5 I just happened to go to his office for an evaluation for the lasik surgery after seeing Dr. Tafour. Did a field test with Tafour and didn't hear a word back. Did a different test with Dr. Fianders and he discovered the early onsets of Glauchomia. The staff was pleasent and he took the time to talk to my concerns. I would have never gone in to check for Glauchomia before it would have been too late. I owe him my vision. Remember that people respond to how you treat them.  Respond

20/06/10 1 1 1 2 We waited more than an hour and a half. Apparently that is normal wait time although they never stated that at time of booking, got a $25.00 parking ticket! Already took an hour to drive there. When we finally got in he was in such a hurry he didn't even look at us or even take the time to read my moms chart. Gotta squeeze in as many patients as possible! Then he told my mom she needed to do a test and she had to come back the next day. don't think so! Very rude, as are the staff. Would rather travel to Sarnia -2 hours away to see Dr. Patodia who is very professional and since we are from out of town did exam and tests all the same day.  Respond

26/05/10 5 5 5 5 I take my father regularly to Dr. Fiander. My father is deaf, and has short memory loss. Dr. Fiander is very busy and we are so fortunate to have him. Stop complaining! Have someone accompany you to your visit with Dr. Fiander. I have great respect for him and the work he does. Thank you.  Respond

21/01/09 1 4 2 5 Dr. Fiander's paraprofessionals are haughty and extremely aggressive (the one in blue and the one in pink respectively). As Dr. Fiander speaks very fast, because he is so rushed, it is not possible to completely comprehend what he is saying therefore.  Respond

18/01/07 5 5 5 Dr. Fiander is a wonderful and great doctor. He worked on my eye 20 years ago and it came out really great. Truly a fantastic and great doctor.  Respond
