17/02/14 5 4 5 5 I was in to see Dr.Tadrous for a routine eye exam. He found that I had a retinal detachment. I was sent to the Retina specialist right away. I found Dr. Tadrous to be very helpful and kind. Although there was a time of sitting in the waiting room to see him. But it was worth it in the end. He was very knowledgeable and his staff was amazing. The one lady at the front counter even took the time to print directions to the Retina specialist for me. All I can say is thank you Dr. Tadrous. I believe that you have saved my vision. thank you  Respond

17/12/13 5 4 5 5 Dr.Tadrous has been my eye specialist for years, I was in recently and also noticed the change in staff, but found them to be very helpful and polite. Dr.tadrous was running late but was informed of that when I asked how long it may be. Dr.Tadrous didnt make me feel rushed knowing he was behind, which is reassuring because you know hes being very thorough. Id recommend him to anyone!

06/12/13 1 1 1 3 We've visited Dr Tadrous many times and each time the wait was super long. He knows what he is doing but recently there has been a new group of staff working at the front desk. They are very inappropriate and not very professional. One of the staff members was not on duty and brought her kids. They were behind the counters and very loud. The patients were not being helped at all. One of the secretaries named Amber was not paying attention to her work or answering calls. Very rude and not a very good experience.  Respond

19/03/13 1 1 1 3 I went somewhere else for my surgery because he had no experience with the lens I wanted. I did not want to be his first experiment, the supplier of the lens recommended someone else. They phoned me and told me not to come back. Apparently I hurt their feelings and pocket book.  Respond

05/11/12 3 5 5 5 I did not meet the staff. I can't submit my comments without filling that group in. I was sent from emergency in Chwk. Dr Tadrous met me at the clinic door at 5:30 PM on a Sunday. He was dressed as though he was going to attend a social event. He was courteous and efficient. After a thorough exam, he explained his findings along with his recommendation and reassurance. Tomorrow I will see a retinologist to have laser surgery. Thank you Dr Tadrous...

21/01/12 4 3 4 5 I guess he's a very good Dr but..His practice is a huge bldg with impressive decor; 20-30 people in waiting area. He is the ONLY Dr. He rushes from tiny exam room to tiny exam room. There are many of them. Rushs in ..no warm-up preliminaries (as self introduction or handshake etc), examines,&rushs to the next one. I did not see any hand washing, but there are lots of hand sanitizers in halls. Employs alot of staff which are all very good.  Respond

Dr.Tadrous did not explain or apolize for been late or for the inconvenience he was causing his patients. Dr. Tadrous then attemped to explain my test results.

14/05/10 1 2 1 1 This Doctor has permanently ruined my vision by inserting a lense off centre during cataract surgery. It's unfortunate that I live in Canada where you can't sue a doctor unless you can find another doctor with equal or greater credentials that will agree that the surgery was botched and the doctors in Canada stick together believe me. I have to live with the shadow of a half moon when looking through my left eye. In certain light I can be looking to the left and see what's on my right as clear as day. I wouldn't recommend this specialist to anyone as in my case he hasn't taken responsibility for his actions and refuses to admit he made an error.  Respond

14/04/10 2 3 2 3 Went in for eye problems and was booked for 3 more. Was told to take eye drops that could change the color of eyes permananently b/c of pressure behind one eye and possible candidate for macular degeneration. Family doctor sent me to another specialist who did the same tests and did not find any indication of being a possible candidate for macular degeneration, the eye drops or future appointments. I personally would not go back.  See Responses
