Ratings for Dr. Jeffery Chambers
Staff were cold and brusque. The explanations and tests I was told I'd pay for were not done, and the person who was to evaluate my case didn't make it to work. I was given the 10 cent tour and shown the door. A tear later, and I find out that I wasn't even booked in yet! I don't like being a piece of income on a conveyor belt.
Waited for an hour even with appointment, just for him to say same thing a referring doctor from clinic. Receptionist said "It's never fast." Then no one called to make surgery appointment. When we called, surgery was set for a month and a half later. Again, receptionist said this is a common wait time.
Skilled, knowledgeable, compassionate doc. Caring, helpful staff. I was very nervous about having eye surgery. As it turns out, there was no need. I can't believe how my vision has improved thanks to Dr. Chambers. Can't get the second eye done soon enough.
My eye situation was very challenging for Dr. Chambers. He took extra time and care to insure the outcome was the best possible for me considering my the uniqueness of my problems. The results were nothing short of amazing. Dr. Chambers' manner may seem brusque to some, in my view is he's exceptionally competent and compassionate while being thoroughly professional.
Emergency eye surgery today to rectify damage from cataract surgery. Went to the optometrist who referred me to this Dr. Chambers in the first place, seeking help with my situation. Within 1/2 hour, she had us on the road to Penticton for emergency surgery ... a different opthamologist, to close a hole in my eye, that the first doctor would not treat. Was so close to permanently losing all vision due to Detached Retina, that the first one does not know how to treat, so left alone and did not alert me to. Thank God for conscientious, caring professionals who take the time to listen to the patient and are not driven by their ego like some... Carried on and got new glasses....... and guess what............ I CAN SEE AGAIN!! after 8 weeks of not being listened to or cared about!!!!! Thank you so very much to Dr. Brittany Rollett (optometrist) in Kelowna, and to Dr. Carl Peters (Ophthalmologist) from Penticton who left his Spring Break and 2 kids to perform emergency on a 1 hour notice!!!!!!!!!!
2 days after my cataract surgery performed by Dr.Chambers, I am so grateful for the new, clear "outlook on life" that I now have. The minute I came into my apartment & turned light on (was probably only a little more than an hour later), I couldn't get over how clear & bright everything looked and it is seeming better & better daily. The staff at the office are excellent and the staff on the Eye Care Floor are a "very well oiled machine"!!! - excellent as well from the time Mary sat me down & started putting drops & then the anesthetist (even tho' I wasn't cold) put a nice warm blanket over me - WOW!! SO NICE The surgery was well worth the wait - Thank you all so very much - Carol Evans :-)
