Dr. Ralph Zabel's Ratings
Dr. Zabel is very cold and completely indifferent to his patient; I have had numerous complications after lens implant (done privately at Lasik MD); I may end up with retinal detachment and possible blindness. He treats his patients as he would a desk or a chair. I am overly disappointed and would never recommend him to anyone.
I found Dr. Zabel is hard to talk to, not a very friendly guy. I didn't feel that I had enough time to explain my problems to him after my cataracts surgery. Always felt rush with him, not a very good experience after all.
Dr. Zabel performed my laser surgery for Glaucoma almost 20 years ago! I've been seeing him every 6-7 months since and my test results continue to be great with ongoing eye drops. Fabulous doctor. Kind, gentle and thorough!
Dr. Zabel did my custom Lasik surgery on January 23rd, at Lasik MD in Ottawa. I had read a lot about lasik and had a number of questions for Dr. Zabel before the actual procedure, some of them very technical and specific. He answered honestly and completely. Before the actual surgery he explained in detail what was going to happen and later guided me through it as he was operating. Dr. Zabel and the whole staff at Lasik MD have been courteous and professionnal, from the first day I walked in for a free evaluation to this day at the follow-up stage. All questions about expected outcomes and potential complications were discussed.
Dr. Zabel removed my cataracts 10 years ago, and I have had no problems ever since then. Totally competent and very friendly and calming. Would return to see him in an instant if I get any further problems.
I was a little nervous for my laser eye surgery but definitely more excited to go through with it. Dr. Zabel helped me relax by explaining the procedure first and then continuing to do so throughout the surgery. It was also reassuring to know that he had completed 25,000 surgeries! My surgery was quick, about 15 minutes. My only regret is that I should have done the surgery sooner; it’s absolutely life changing!
