Dr. Edmund Liang's Ratings
The nurse was rude and did not give proper instructions before any test. That ended up poor testing result and wasted time to repeat tests. Over booking are all expected in today health system, but taking over 3 hours for one eye appointment is definitely an issue. In fact, for my last 5 years visit, the delay is always the same. The bottom line is Dr Liang is great and awesome. Worth the long wait....
When I arrived at Dr. Liang's office, I had to wait for over 3 hours. His waiting room was crowded, the office and examination rooms were untidy, his staff were unprofessional, and the general atmosphere was negative. The majority of Dr. Liang's patients appeared to be non-English speaking seniors. Many of these patients were accompanied by English speaking translators/care givers. Perhaps some of these patients grew up in countries where the medical standard of care is substantially lower than that in Canada, and therefore had no idea that they were being provided with substandard care.
Dr. Liang seemed to constantly be in a rush, as he had a very inattentive disposition. The entire appointment lasted no more than a few minutes. He was unable to answer all my questions regarding his assessment of my eye problems, as well as his proposed course of treatment. He gave medical opinions based on conjecture, which resulted in a misdiagnosis.
Stay away from Dr. Liang if you value your health!
My family doctor referred me to Dr. Liang on my request. I felt there was something wrong with my eyesight. I had a number of appointments with Dr. Liang without any improvement. Dr. Liang then refused to see me any more and sent a letter to my family doctor asking him to not send me back again since there was nothing wrong with my eyesight. Fortunately, my doctor referred me to another ophthalmologist who discovered that I have glaucoma. Because of this doctor, I may have lost my sight. I am thankful for my family doctor who has respect for his patients.
I had a 4:30PM appointment and I didn't get to see Dr. Liang until 8PM. When I arrived, I "signed in", no one in the office talked to me and did not warn me that Dr. Liang was running late. Examination was very brief and quick. I was referred by my optometrist. All he said was that he would report to my optometrist. How can a doctor work 9 to 9 everyday and expect to have the energy to take care of his patients properly.
Dr. Liang performed emergency laser surgery at 2 a.m. on my 93 year old father eyes. Even though it was late and we had been in another hospital for 4 hours, he responded to the page of that hospital as we travelled 40 minutes to meet him. Everything went well and he followed up the next morning (Sat.) as well as Sunday morning. Follow-up was excellent. He did not have the luxury of staff available on the weekend. My father was impressed with Dr. Liang's knowledge and the other precautionary procedures he suggested my Dad needed to guard against future problems. Could not rate staff because we were treated on the weekend.
We have been patients of Dr. Liang for over 15 years. He is helpful and thorough. He is an excellent doctor. Waiting time is usually long, but we would rather have a good doctor than a doctor who rushed through the examination.
Have seen him for 4 years, and have NEVER had to wait less than about 2 hours to see him, despite my appt time. He is a great guy, but is discouraging as a doctor, is a doom and glooom doctor. He will explain when asked, but the office disorganization, the non-friendliness of his staff, particularly his Asian asst., I have to give him a poor rating.
