Ratings for Dr. Sara Zahiri
I'm so surprised to see the positive reviews for this Doctor. The clinic was very dirty ( I mean dirty...not just untidy, although it certainly was that too!) That made me uneasy about her putting drops in my eyes when clearly a sanitary environment was not a priority! I also found it very unprofessional that she would start talking about the cost of glasses during the actual examination portion of the appointment. It felt like she was already starting the sales pitch on me before the exam was done. When I asked Dr. Zahiri if I actually needed bi-focals, she tried to explain that if I didn't get them now then my eyes would get so bad that even the bi-focals wouldn't help. That didn't seem logical to me and after a little checking, I discovered that she was not at all correct. When I left her office I threw my prescription out and booked an appointment with another doctor. I had no confidence in her exam and kicked my self for not doing more research before I wasted my good money.
Best Optometrist in Ottawa! I go with her with my 3 kids, 1, 3, and 5. She is great with children and very patient. She never rushes you and takes her time to answer all of your questions. I was referred to her by my sister-in-law and now my whole family has switched over.
This doctor saved my life. My boyfriend wears glasses and after I sat through his exam, I decided to get one too after I noticed how great she was. I was having a lot of headaches and my family doctor couldn't figure out the cause. She squeezed me in because I live a little far, and it turned out I didn't need glasses, but she checked the health of my eyes and told me I needed to be seen immediately for an MRI and a neurologist. She sent me straight to the hospital, it turns out I had a lot of pressure building up inside my brain. She literally saved my life. I cant thank her enough. I wish all doctors were this thorough. I had visited my family doctor several times, she never caught a thing, even though I complained of constant headaches. If it wasn't for Dr Zahiri, I don't know where I would be today. I had no idea that so much could be determined from an eye exam.
Dr. Zahiri was supper helpful in answering my many questions regarding eye health. She made me feel confident that my prescription was right for me and even conducted additional tests that were not part of the regular eye exam. I will definitely be going back to her for my future eye exams.
Wow what a doctor, dr zahiri spent over an hour on my exam until she found the problem and diagnosed my condition. She was professional, answered all my questions during the exam and the follow up visits as well. She really knows her stuff and I will be bringing my children for their checkups going forth. Top notch doctor, A++!
