Ratings for Dr. Vikram Lekhi
Dr. Lekhi seems like a nice person and has a good manner. But, I was left confused and disappointed after meeting with him. I was referred for cataracts by my Optometrist. He diagnosed me with cataracts but said it would cost around 10000.00 dollars to get them completed in Calgary, but I could go to High River and have them done for free. I asked why I would have to pay in Calgary and I wasn’t given an answer. He seemed to shy away from my direct questions about cataract surgery being covered, why I must pay and how the surgery is carried out and then left quickly. I went back to my Optometrist and told her what happened and she was astounded to hear that I would have to pay for cataract surgery at all. I am now being referred to another Ophthalmologist and wait 2 months to see her. I want to see someone that may be more interested in helping me and not charge me for a surgery that is covered by our government. Please be aware of these tactics.
Dr. Lekhi is a very good at explaining procedures and medical conditions. He actually takes time to answer your questions! Rare gem in this day and age.highly recommend. His new office in High River is very nice look for his personal artwork! Very talented individual.
I had surgery from Dr. Lekhi today and trust me when I say he is amazing. The nurses in High River where he did my surgery are very friendly and you feel like a patient not a number in an assembly line. It was a drive to get there but well worth it! He was very kind and gentle. I have had 17 operations in my life, this has had to be one of the best experiences I have had! I was so impressed I am having my son write this review for me to let others know.
I have never seen a surgeon with such a great bedside manner. I had my cataracts done by him and I am 20/20 in both eyes! He is a great surgeon and I was nervous during surgery but talked me through the surgery explaining step by step what he was doing. That helped a lot not to mention he has great music in the operating room. If you listen close you can even hear him sing. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Lekhi was very extensive in explaining my condition. I've been suffering unnecessarily until I received treatment from Dr. Lekhi. He took his time in answering all my questions and I felt very comfortable in continuing treatment with him. I dealt with a few other opthomologists at this clinic and no one impressed me as much Dr. Lekhi!
