Dr. Jackman performed my eye surgery and I am beyond glad that he did! Not only did he correct my prescription, he also managed to help with a reoccurring eye issue that was quite unpleasant at times. His bedside manner is exceptional, and far better than any doctor I've dealt with in the past. He's courteous and explains every detail so that I was able to understand what was happening. You can tell that staff are well trained and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Jackman to anyone dealing with any eye issue. I am certain that you would not regret it!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Jackman for several years. I always find him to be so caring and patient. I had cataract surgery and he talked to me while he was doing the surgery, explaining each step that he was doing. I always recommend him to anyone I know that needs an ophthalmologist. In my opinion he’s the best

I had my surgery with Dr. Jackman three weeks ago and it was the best choice I’ve ever made. Dr. Jackman greeted me before the procedure for a consult to answer any of my last minute questions and calm my nerves. During the surgery, he spoke to me the whole time and talked me through all the steps. I’m beyond impressed with the results and how easy the overall appointment was. I would recommend Dr. Jackman to anyone considering surgery.

I was into a 4 month checkup, and 1 year checkup after that took 2 years. Reception staff are surly. Every time I've had a appointment I've had a 2 hour wait and saw Dr. Jackman for approximately 1 minute. There were 22 people ahead of me. It's assembly line medicine at it's worst, with provincially funded patients at the back of the bus and paying customers wanting Lasik at the front.

Dr. Jackman's dedication and expertise with my now known issues with severe blepharitis among other ongoing vision ailments has been nothing short of miraculous. A true gentleman and a Dr who cares for his patients on an end to end basis. I will recommend Dr. Jackman to any friend or colleague requiring a higher level eye care or management.
