18/04/13 3 1 2 4 Poor time management. elderly lady sitting beside me had been waiting for 2 hours; similar experience to mine. I had to hold my tongue when at the end of the followup, he thanked me for being "good." I will never go back and see this individual unless it is necessary. One rater said he dreaded going to this doctor. Now I know why.  Respond

02/02/13 3 1 2 5 I dread my upcoming appt. Total disrespect for patients in regards to time. Tremendous ego. Tried to cover up the lack of due diligence on his part and the part of the hospital staff. Does answer questions - but he's like a stiff robot !! I know he's considered tops in his field for his knowledge and skill.  Respond

04/06/12 5 3 5 5 I have a lazy eye and I dont see much. And one good eye. In 1996 I was told that I have dry macular degeneration. Ocuvite and Vitilux and so far doing ok. And a diabetic. So when I couldn't read anymore and see road signs I was sent to Dr Harding. I was very worried about my good eye. Well he operated and removed the cataracts in 20 minutes and he took excellent care of me. My sight is great. Both eyes done. He's a nice guy and he knows his stuff. Yeah you do have to wait a while but he's worth the wait. And for glasses go to the place downstairs. The service is excellent. I moved a long ways away otherwise I'd be there again.  Respond

29/11/11 5 3 5 5 A few years ago I awoke with a large black area in one eye. He was closest to me & they booked me (a new patient) that day. He arranged for a detached retina surgery & I was fixed in 2 days. Good, friendly service since. I'll put up with the long waits; there's lots of magazines.  Respond

12/06/10 3 2 2 4 This physician should afford a fax. I had to convey an ER report to him, because he had cancelled my scheduled appointment for next week. Not appropriate for an Ottawa grad.  Respond

24/12/09 1 1 5 5 I had an apt last week (made by my optician in Oct) with Dr.H. I work downtown and took 1/2 day off new job, cab to Dr. Harding's office to be told my apt had been cancelled. She asked if I'd received their letter of two weeks earlier cancelling the apt (I hadn't, and still have not). She said Dr. H. would be working till 7:30 that night as they had overbooked SIX patients. Disgraceful. I now have to take more time and incur more expense to get another apt in the New Year. On the other hand, Dr. Harding was incredibly knowledgeable during my first apt two years ago, as was his nurse, however scheduling is appalling.  Respond

24/05/09 5 4 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr Peter Harding for many years. Anyone that as been to that office knows how well they are organized. Yes I am aware that they book 3 patients a 8 O'clock and I do understand that those patients needs to be dilated before the Dr Come's in. I was a little surprised to read that some patients think that if they register first they go in first. It as been my experience that the receptionist and assistant have a list to follow. The office is not a walk in clinic. I am just so grateful that he has such a caring staff My visit there have always been so pleasant yes I wait and you know what its with pleasure as I know that the Doctor always take is time with me I am never rush. I would also like to thank Louise she is always so polite and caring she always accomodate me if I have an emergency. Keep up the good work Dr Harding  Respond

12/02/09 5 5 5 5 I had the pleasure to meet the Doctor today for the first time. First of all I would like to take the time to thank his secretary in front she was very helpfull to me. I was having an emergency at home and was not sure if I could have stayed for my appointment. She explained to me the wait was probably another hour before I would see the Dr so if I wanted to go home she would keep my space open. I thank her and home I went.My daughter had forgot her keys and could not get in. When I returned I was so surprised to see a patient giving her a hard time because she had not been seen yet. The secretary never lost her cool she was so gracious and so polite to her. I would like for anyone that takes the time to read this always remember to think before they action with there frustation. These girls working do have feeling too. Me my experience at that office was fantastic. From the moment I went in to the time I left. Special thank to Dr Harding and his wonderful staff.  Respond

13/10/08 5 5 5 5 Very good doctor, excellent knowledge about his field, though people say that the wait takes hours, every time i came there it was only a 20 minute wait! His secretary is very nice, a person was complaining about their eyes hurting a lot in the waiting room, and she calmed him down in a snap! This is definitely a recommended doctor, the best eye docter I have ever seen in my life so far!!  Respond

26/02/07 1 3 5 No doubt an expert in his field. This doctor, however, has little regard for patient time. Never in the years I've been going has this dr. been on time or even close to it. I understand emergencies, but if you have them every day, this should be built into the schedule. Very disrespectful of patients.  Respond
