Ratings for Dr. Jamie Bhamra
I'm sure Dr. Bhamra is a great surgeon, and my impression is that he is very knowledgeable and good at what he does. Unfortunately, I just didn't find his patient approach/style to be a fit for me. My biggest complaint, really, is with the structure of his practice at Vector Eye Centre. I can see the value in streamlined operations, especially with such long wait lists. But I felt like a head of cattle being corralled through an assembly line of very young, very impersonal technicians every time I was there. Waits are extremely long - an hour to two hours each time I visited - and you are lucky to get 5 minutes with the doctor. They do a poor job at intake, in my opinion, and don't take any time to explain their processes or what to expect. My questions were met with frustration, and an attitude of "why don't you already know this?" If and when things were explained at all, it was fast and difficult to absorb. I get that these people are busy, but I consistently felt like I was being rushed out the door. Why am I giving up two hours of my time to be treated like an inconvenience? No thanks. It just wasn't a fit for me, from the very first appointment. I was visibly frustrated, and instead of trying to explain things to me or set my mind at ease, they were frustrated with me being frustrated.
Happy Dr. Bhamra moved to this NW location at Vector Eye Centre. I went by LRT. Recommend Dr. Bhamra. Great eye physician. Removed and treated cancers from the surface of my eye and save my eye and maybe my life. Happy New Year Dr. Bhamra... so many thank you's as I move into 2018.
I was sent to Dr Bhamra for early cataracts. After new lenses in both eyes, I CAN SEE!!!! Now I realize that I couldn’t really see for a long time. Thank you so much, Dr Bhamra and staff. I have a new life. The office always had a large number of patients waiting; like all medical offices appointment time is approximate as the doctors need to deal with emergencies and unforeseen issues with other patients first. When I needed quick help, I got it. I felt comfortable and confident in surgery. Things were explained clearly. Overall it was a 5/5 experience.
I just found this website so I am a little late at rating my cataract surgery with Dr. Bhamra. What a great experience!! I was fast tracked after my first initial appointment and only had a 2 month wait. Dr. Bhamra explained everything clear and concise with his eyeball plastic model lol. The right eye ended being 20/15 and six weeks later my left eye was done and is 20/20. He is a very kind and funny eye surgeon. So reassuring telling me.."I did great". Easy going albeit a little rushed at times. Only negative is the wait sometimes which can be long and boring sitting in the last room for him.
