15/06/14 3 1 1 2 Total of seven visits. Shortest wait period was FIVE hours; longest was EIGHT hours. Totally overbooked every time, so much so that some people in crowded waiting room have nowhere to sit. Many patients are elderly, have driven hundred of miles to get there, waited for months for an appointment, only to get to an extremely uncomfortable crowded waiting room. No water, food at close proximity, bathrooms are a distance away. Shortest consultation with doctor was 4 minutes; longest consultation was 11 minutes. Suspicious of any comment with a punctuality rating that would be more than 2.  Respond

20/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kherani and his team is excellent. The comfort me before and after surgery. I was very worried for surgery but even during surgery (did not take more than 20 minutes), Dr. Kherani was so good and comforted me all the way. I was ok in a day and I am seeing things so clearly now. Thank you doctor and thank to your team.  Respond

08/12/10 4 3 5 5 Dr. Kherani is a wonderful doctor and human being. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He is hardest working professional I have ever met. Yes, yes, yes the wait times are long, but considering that he takes on medical emergencies at the drop of a dime, it is understandable that the wait times can get lengthy. I have been on the one end waiting 5 hours plus to be seen and also when I encountered the most devastating reality of possibly losing my vision before the age of 30, I was attended to immediately. Knowing this I prepare for a long day, bring some snacks, a book and get ready to meet some really nice people that are all waiting for Dr. Kherani to make their world a little bit better. I'm so grateful to have him as my doctor. Dr.Kherani's skills, knowledge, kindness and compassion are a rare find in today's world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr.Kherani and a big hug to your family that allows all of us to borrow time from their father/husband:) Happy holidays!  Respond

20/08/10 3 4 5 5 Dr. Kherani is a top notch doctor, he treats everyone with respect, is great at answering questions. He is way overworked, but never have I seen him not take the time to give everyone his full attention. Takes a scary situation and puts your mind at rest.  Respond

25/05/10 5 3 5 5 I have a very rare autoimune disease that affects the eyes. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Kherani as he is the best Dr. I have ever met in his caring attitude. I travel a great distance to see him but he is worth every visit. Other Dr's could take a lesson from him in how he treats patients as busy as he is.  Respond

29/04/09 5 2 5 5 My elderly mother saw Dr. Kherani for a detached retina, she had no appointment but was seen anyway after a same day referral as an emergency. Dr. Kherani is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and no matter how many people are watiing he doesn't try and rush the exam, taking time to discuss with the patient and family as well. I feel very lucky that my mother was referred to such an amazing doctor. The waits can be very long but I have yet to hear anyone complain too much, even after hours in the waiting room (seen at 5:00 pm for a 9:00 am appointment once). The patients realize he is behind due to emergencies, which many of them have been at one time or another. I feel a real sense of comaraderie with the people in the waiting room after hours together - and many laughs shared. This is a testament to how amazing of doctor he is.  Respond

08/03/09 3 2 4 4 Dr. Kherani has renewed my trust in eye doctors. I've had some serious eye issues this past year and he was the one that made me feel safe in his care. I was taken aback by his kind bedside manner. His level of knowledge and expertise far exceeds any other than I have been cared by. We are truly blessed to have him.  Respond

09/04/07 1 5 5 There is not a better doctor than Dr. Kherani. Despite his insanely demanding and busy schedule, he always has a compassionate and kind approach with me. His knowledge and treatment are fair and collaberative, he always takes into account my fears and hopes. The wait times are very long but they are only because there are not enough retinal specialists available.  Respond

01/04/07 3 5 5 Amit is the most overworked Caring doctor I have meet. He took a very dangerous situation with my eyes and spent hours figuring it out and reassuring my family. He always made me feel like I was his top concern. (Waits are LONG, but worth it)!  Respond

06/03/07 2 3 5 Dr. Kherani is an excellent doctor in his skills, however I found he was not very helpful or concerned about his patience status. His people skills are not good, his office is overbooked and there is a long waiting period that could extend up to 5 hours or more. However he is an excellent doctor for those needing special eye treatment, or lazer surgery.  Respond

05/03/07 3 5 5 Dr.Kherani is very skilled and smart in his field. He cares alot and gives alot of time per patient..no shoving out the door. Thats why the wait in office is long. But it is worth it..because you get your answers when you leave and next appointment. BEST RETINA/OID DOCTOR.  Respond
