Unfortunately, I had a less than pleasant experience with this dentist a few years ago. If you are a young woman I would not recommend seeing this man as when I went and had a horrible experience. It was the end of my appointment and my chair was in the down position and I was waiting for him to put my chair up and Dr. Foomani leaned down and kissed me on the corner of my mouth for about 5-6 seconds. This, naturally, made me feel incredibly uncomfortable so I sat up and left. I then called the non-emergency police line and they advised me to file a sexual assault report with the Saanich police and I did. This is HIGHLY unprofessional and as a young woman he made me feel incredibly vulnerable.
I have went to Dr. Foomani for around ten years, and I like him. He isn't super professional but down to earth and nice. True like some others have said he can be a little forgetful, however when I remind him of our plans or my concerns he remembers our conversations. He is very considerate about peoples budgets and has many times done work that I ran out of coverage for. As for being creepy I have never found that to be an issue. I have had a few male doctors that made me feel uncomfortable, and I think its always understand able to switch if you feel that way. So in short I recommend him!
I wish I had read the reviews before going to see this 'dentist'. I don't know where to start, very unprofessional and not to mention CREEPY. He kissed me on the head during the procedure (I am a 22 year old female) and as a woman said below positioned me with his legs. My tooth filling is now chipping 2 weeks later. It will be better to go somewhere else, despite their 20% off.
I saw Dr. Foomani last year since he offers a discount to local university and college students, and it was an entirely unprofessional and uncomfortable experience. Dr. Foomani sat behind my head while I was laid back and used his legs to stabilize my head, which was extremely offputting for a 19 year old female alone in his office. It's apparent that Dr. Foomani has no care or knowledge for these sorts of basic considerations. He did everything he could to pressure me to book a filling, and when I told him that my godfather, a dentist in another city, would be performing any dental work past a basic checkup, he stopped haranguing me about the filling. When I did follow up with my godfather he assured me that a filling was unnecessary and that Dr. Foomani was likely trying to capitalize on an oppurtunity to profit. Will never return.
I think Dr Foomani is awesome..very gentle ..awesome tells you what he's gonna do before he does it... the freezing is pain less and goes away before long.......takes his time ...soooo glad I found him for a dentist...I am so happy with him...and he's got reasonable rate too....THE BEST
DO NOT GO TO THIS DENTIST!! I am a student in victoria at camosun college and this happens to be one of the dentists that covers the additional 20% of the fee so decided to go. Initially I was warned by a few hygienists that this guy is just a money grabber. Turned out completely true. To start with I called almost a week and a half in advance for an appointment and asked to have my xrays transferred to them because my usual place, DR. Gakhal on royal oak, is closed this week. I called again asked if they received them they said yes. I get there only to find out "its still in the process, they should be here in a few minutes". Impossible, Dr. Gakhal is closed! Foomani did only an inspection for 2 minutes, (even though I already know what I needed filled) and acted clueless. He totally said the wrong teeth I needed filled, ones that are completely fine. In addition at the end he is saying I owe a dental exam fee. Not happening. No dental assistant was present. The staff was his daughter.
I am angry at the negative comments below of this educated,kind dentist. theres always a few lemons in a basket of produce,moreover these people who sling mud at Dr Mansur Foomani are most likely sandwich technicians at subway...This gentle Doctor went to university for years in a communist country so you could have a great smile and a healthy life!!! shame on you people for your petty whining about your visit..50% of dentistry is the patient,and if your bitter off the get go. This kind Dr is not a miracle worker.So get over it,suck it up sunshine...or better yet you go get your PHD in dentistry and see how life treats you!!!!! I am 100% confident in Dr Foomanis COMPETENCE...DONT LISTEN TO THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS FROM NASTY PEOPLE AS ITS NOT TRUE..SINCERELY MR AL RAMSAY VICTORIA BC
Have been seeing Dr. Foomani since 1998 and he has always been super helpful - has done many extras for little to nothing charged - never any pain or mistakes. Would highly recommend him - as a matter of fact have been travelling from Vancouver so that he can remain my dentist. Love, love love him
