I had strabismus surgery on November 9 and I'm quite impressed with the results. The only thing is that he told me that I would not need eye drops to heal. However, someone else who had eye surgery told me about a general drop (lubricant) which I used and it helped speed up the recovery.. Apart from that, Dr Budning patiently answered questions and concerns regarding the surgery

They booked me for the 23rd of December at 9:30 in the morning but because I live two and a half hours away with traffic it takes about 5 hours so they change my appointment to January 8th with no problem, I'm seeing him again because I had to postpone surgery because I was having seizures and bothe they got me in pretty quickly, I didn't have to wait 3 months, I don't see what you all are complaining about

This doctor is very unprofessional and doesn’t have the knowledge and expertise and capability of an Ophthalmologist. My left eye had a internal bleeding that led to a detached rental; during my initial visits to his office and right as soon as I started to notice that something was wrong with eye; I insisted and kept telling him the condition of my eye was getting worse and worse in each visit and he kept telling me that it was actually getting better and better. He actually at one point got very angry at me since I was insisting that my eye is getting worse. It was not till the last minute that he realized that he was wrong and realized that I had a detached rental; he sent me to St Michael hospital for surgery; I just could get 50% of my vision back. If he had just listen to me he could have send me for surgery earlier and I could get most my vision back. He is very unprofessional and rude and does not have the necessary skills to do his job.

It is always a nightmare going to his office for an appointment because you know you will have to wait over an hour to be seen and his waiting room does not accommodate the number of patients that are waiting to be seen. The receptionist couldn't find my sons appointment even though I had an email confirmation of it. She indicated that she would fit us in! I was appalled, not only did we wait an hour and a half to be "fitted in" to an appointment that was already made but the attitude was disgusting. Don't double book appointments to bill OHIP to the maximum and then leave patients sitting/standing waiting for their appointment.

I saw one of the other doctors in this office. He was very helpful and quick in diagnosis. No issues with service. I do, however, get quite a kick out of the snarky signs posted throughout the office: have your health card out BEFORE approaching the desk; don't re-arrange the chairs; no eating in the hallways, video surveillance in effect; etc. They just seem to set the wrong tone. No complaints about the service, though.

Dr. Budning and his staff are not personal at all. This is not a happy practice. It is never a nice experience to go there. My son has been going there for over a year and we have quit on him! He is always late, not very approachable, hates to answer any questions and is kind of rude. I would not recommend this doctor to anybody. You do not feel comfortable talking to him.

In response to comments below, Dr. Budning is correct in saying optometrists are not medical doctors. They are doctors in optometry. Dr. B is an Ophthalmologist, which is a medical doctor. I highly doubt he is concerned about OHIP billing, considering he works as a specialist at sick kids and his wait list can be up to 2 years long in his own practice. Specialists in Ophthalmology are surgeons and researchers. Optometrists have their own role as well in providing eye care, but they are not medical doctors. You are lucky to have seen him. I'm trying to get an appointment for my son and it has a real challenge. I've got to see an optometrist first and then I can get a faster referral.

This Doctor and most of his staff are horrible. My daughter had surgery with this man in April. We are now in September and her eye is killing her. We have tried to call to make an appointment and get nothing. No concern about his patients at all. He does not tell you about complications that can occur. Even after the surgery he would not come and talk to us until the hospital nurses cornered him and made him chat with us. The surgery did not correct what he said it would do. Shame on your Dr. Budning for letting your staff not get messages to you.
