Ratings for Dr. Sara Zahiri
Appointment was for 640pm, she got to see me at 715pm. She seems to know what she's talking about but most of it sounded like a sales pitch. Not saying she's a bad doctor but was really annoyed at having to wait over 30 minutes for a "scheduled appointment"
Absolutely the best. Dr Zahiri saved my eyesight and I am so thankful. I went to see her for a regular check up and she diagnosed me with glaucoma and sent me to see a glaucoma specialist right away. The specialist also respects her and complimented her keen eye and early diagnosis. I could not be more thankful for her skill.
I had my toddler scratch me in the eye. I called several different eye clinics including my own eye doctor who told me to either go to a walk in or emergency room. I tried this office and they took me in as an emergency right away. They were very professional and I was happy I didn't have to go to the emergency room for treatment. They have won me over. Highly recommend.
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.
