Ratings for Dr. F Calotti
Dr. Calotti is a dedicated,knowledgeable & skillful professional in the field of ophthalmology. I initially came to Dr Calotti because of deteriorating vision in one eye. He quickly diagnosed the problem as “ Retinal Vein Occlusion “ & began corrective treatment. Over the past couple of years his follow up care & treatments have prevented further recurrence of this problem. In the past year Dr. Calotti has also performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes & corrected an astigmatism as well. I now can see distances without glasses & my vision & color definition is great. I have the highest regard for Dr Calotti & his staff . They are constantly making changes to improve the efficiency of the office due to the high volume of patients. Thank you for improving my sight. E. V. Ancaster
My latest visit shows how Dr. Calloti has changed for the worse. First 2-3 years (1 visit per yr) seemed okay. I have Glaucoma and everything was stable - Dr. spent maybe 5 min. saying tests were stable & ok. However, this year I had a sudden change after testing, loss of focus a bit and a lot of glare light sensitivity problems. I had several related questions for him with my concerns with my noticeable issue. He rushed into the consult room, asked how I was, I started to relate my issue - he then jumped up and left - his assistant come back asking for my Optometrist name. He came back and I tried to related my experience with glare / focus loss about 3 weeks prior - BUT after my tests there re separate appointment. He obviously did not want to get in to it. I tried asking IF the tests done would find a "leaky eye" which I had 15 yrs ago causing serious vision loss (thankfully only for 2 months) - I never got the question out, he blocked further questions, saying "I don't know what is up" and that some patience e.g. someone called him out to emergency with vision loss which was only cataracts and NOT sudden. Message was crystal clear - my problem was in my head also! e.g. am an idiot. But Dr. Calloti let me say, YOU are the idiot, cause only an idiot does not gather ALL the facts when trying to make a diagnosis or investigate a problem. But to him there was NO problem other than what was VERY obvious - his waiting room was full and getting them thru a priority (likely $$ priority). I am never going back to see any Dr. that does not attempt to LISTEN. Ugh.
After my appointment with Greak Lakes Eye Center, I have come to the conclusion that I while Dr Calotti is an excellent doctor, he at times can be rude and abrupt when I asked a question concerning treatment, and am disappointed in the extreme length of time I sat in the waiting room, waiting to be assessed.
I have had both eyes done for cataracts and astigmatism and Dr Calotti and his staff were very professional and friendly making it a relaxing experience,my results were outstanding and the day of the surgery at Brantford General Hospital the nurses and staff were friendly and all very professional,I would highly recommend Dr Calloti and his staff to anyone
I recently had cataracts removed and surgery to correct astigmatism in both eyes. I was very nervous about having anything done to my eyes but Dr Calotti and staff were very professional and the entire process (including surgery) went extremely well!!! I did not choo se to have corrective lenses and will need glasses for reading but the astigmatism surgery has permanently corrected my long vision. I was not sure about having the astigmatism surgery but it has been one of my better decisions. I highly recommend Dr Calotti!!
Dr. Calotti and his staff are excellent. I had a very high prescription all my life and was very nervous about having anything to done to my eyes. I was referred to Dr. Calotti when it was determined I might need cataract surgery. He was very generous with his time answering all my questions and concerns before, during and after the surgery. All levels of his staff are the best I have every dealt with! For the first time in my life I can "see" without glasses or contacts!! Thank you very much to the entire team
Dr.Calotti and his team are absolutely first class. They are very knowledgeable, patient and professional. During the office visits and throughout the procedure, I was kept informed and felt I was in good hands. Thank you. R Thomas -Waterdown, Ont.
