Please ignore people who complain about the staff and wait times for the Pacific Eye Laser Clinic; there is a very good reason why this is a busy clinic, Dr. Holland is the most qualified surgeon for PRK or Lasik or any other type of ophthalmic investigation. I would remind anyone reading that Dr. Holland is a member of The University of British Columbia Department of Ophthalmology cornea service as a faculty member. I was not only impressed by reading up on his education accreditation both in Canada and in other countries but the fact he is a surgeon not just some guy trained to run a laser. In person he was thorough and attentive and took time and never seemed in a rush while speaking with me. I would question anyone else you see in regards to your vision other than Dr. Holland since in my view he is the most qualified and experienced in his field available in BC, or at least one of the top of his peer group. Yes his clinic is VERY busy and the staff are exhaustively tasked with the demand of the case loads in front of them. A bit of PATIENCE goes a long way for any patient.

We had to wait over an hour for a booked appointment. This is sometimes expected with Dr.s however, the receptionist was so rude and unhelpful, the experience was terrible. She had a very condescending attitude. The Dr. himself was great and very nice and professional.

It so refreshing to speak with a doctor who cares and actually takes time to explain things to you, answer your questions and give you options. Wow!!! that just doesn't happen anymore. He doesn't rush you or make you feel like you are taking up his valuable time. Certainly knows his stuff.

Don't even try to call his office. They will put you on hold or they will just hang up on you. The lady from the front desk is not multitask at all. Her name is Lana or something like that...horrible and unprofessional!

I have been with Dr. Holland for 20 years and have had two cornea transplants, PRK, Lasik Surgery. I would recommend him to anyone. I have found his character to be of excellent quality, caring and competent. He is one of the few doctors I trust completely.

My experience was nothing short of amazing! I ironically enough had a consultation and potential appointment date booked with another doctor and luckily after reading the reviews given from ratemymd patients of said other doctor, I had QUICKLY changed my mind and booked a consultation with Dr. Simon Holland. An extremely kind and gentle man with the most honest and professional opinions given. Dr. Holland made me feel at ease at the time of surgery, which was of my concern as I was extremely nervous regarding having it done. (Phobia of my eyes, i'm sure i'm not alone either) Thank you Dr. Holland, I really appreciate what you've done for myself and others!
