Ratings for Dr. Feisal Adatia
Even though I had to wait 6 months for my cataract surgery, because of Alberta Health quota, once dates were set everything went well. I had cataract surgery on both eyes. I was treated with the upmost care and cannot believe the vast difference in my vision. I now have my 20 / 20 vision back and it makes my life style great again. I would highly recommend Dr. Adatia to anyone. Thank you again.
I saw Dr. Adatia as for second opinion on my glaucoma disease. He recommended me to follow my first Dr. as he is not a glaucoma expert at all! The question is now: why did you accepted to provide a second opinion on glaucoma if you're not expert? The answer: Because he and his staff will charge tax-payers a good deal of money for this appointment and the performed tests. Not happy with his professionality.
Dr. Feisal Adatia's response
Hi. Just to clarify, your referral was for a second opinion on glaucoma. All ophthalmologists are qualified to provide that. The testing you had in fact confirmed that you have glaucoma and I showed you the testing results. If your referral was for a second opinion on glaucoma surgery, which is actually what you wanted, our referral coordinators would have not booked you in with me. There are only four doctors that actively do glaucoma surgery in Calgary. As I discussed with you, Dr. Ford, who you initially saw is excellent and I trust his judgement. I understand that he has recommended surgery and you do not want surgery. As we discussed, I feel it would be in your best interests to let Dr. Ford know that you do not want surgery as you relayed to me. All physicians hope to partner with their patients on care. Perhaps he could explain to you why he feels the way he does or offer alternatives such as additional drops or laser. You will not know until you have that conversation with him. If you are still not happy, he can refer you to another glaucoma surgeon and he could provide the tests he has done and his rationale so as to save duplication. Good luck!

I first met Dr Adatia when my optometrist sent me to him after diagnosing a detached retina. After he examined my right eye, I was immediately sent to the Rockyview Hospital and he operated on my eye that afternoon. Dr Adatia explained the procedure and I felt I was in the care of a very competent doctor throughout the process. A year later he operated on my left eye performing a retinal peel to prevent a possible retina detachment. Both operations had excellent results. I would highly recommend Dr Adatia. He would be my first choice to help my family or friends.
