I think some of these reviews are fake. She and staff are too keen on selling glasses. Quite recently I saw she is even selling medication such as some eye drops.

Dr. Faten Fares's response
Sorry you feel that way about our clinic ; however you questioning the credibility of the rating is doubting Rate MD not our clinic. But truth is we encourage our patients to rate us so we can keep on improving our service. As for you seeing us keen on sales, we are in fact keen about offering a personalized and individualized service . We are proud of our products and services and eager to serve our clients and patients. In regards to sales of eye drops and ocular vitamins that is in compliance of the Optometry act and fully authorized by the College Of Optometrists Of Ontario.

This is my first experience with Dr. Faten. I was very pleased with all the testing she did on my eyes. .. Dr Faten and her staff is very professional and makes you feel welcomed, they are all very kind. I would recommend Dr. Faten to anyone who would like an optometrist. You will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to visiting her for my next eye exam. Thank you Dr. Faten for showing how much you care!

I have been going to Dr Fares for about three year, she is the most helpful and knowledgeable Doctor I have been to in my sixty years of life, her staff work well together and are not afraid to jump in and help one another out when they get busy. No matter what time of day you see her she is welcoming and cheerful. My husband and I are happy she is our eye doctor. We highly recommend Dr. Fares and her wonderful staff. Bev and Bernard Morel

Disappointing experience, her clinical diagnosis did not match several others eye doctors. Expensive equipment, I guess she needs more training. Glad I went for other specialists opinions.
