Ratings for Dr. Ralph Zabel
Dr. Zabel was amazing. He is humble and very skilled in what he does. During the surgery he would thoroughly explain each step that he was about to perform, and his confidence and calming voice would reassure me throughout the procedure. A big thank you to Dr. Zabel and his surgical team! Loved the high-five at the end!
Dr. Zabel is a great surgeon. He changed my life. He was very attentive to my needs and he recommended very good tests to select the proper lenses for my difficulties. I had several surgeries to my eyes before but only Dr. Zable was able to improve my vision. I do not know how to thank him properly. I recommend him highly. He is one of a kind in Ottawa.
Very poor people skills. Poor communication. Very sharp and short on explanations. Limited patience. Not pleasant overall. Surgery gave me a new problem that time will heal... When? He had no reassurance for me. Very let down.
Dr. Zabel is so incredibly knowledgable and an outstanding surgeon; I unequivocally recommend him!! I finally decided to get LASIK at LasikMD and the results are AMAZING ! I was worried about my dry eyes and Dr. Zabel took the time to address my concerns and answered all my questions right away. He knew I was very nervous and he talked me through the whole procedure so I knew exactly what was going on. He even gave me a "high-five" at the end!! Although I am still healing, I was 20/20 the next day and could not be more grateful! I had a wonderful and very positive experience and am so satisfied with my results! Thank you so much Dr. Zabel!
My doctor / surgeon was Dr. Ralph Zabel. He is an experienced surgeon, and he was knowledgable and answered all the questions that I asked (and I did ask a few “extra” questions, about healing times, possible interactions with over the counter medications, etc). The procedure itself went smoothly and quickly. The healing process also went smoothly. My experience with Dr Zabel was positive, and I would recommend him as a surgeon. It's been a few days since the surgery, and although I'm not fully healed, my vision is already very good.
Just shy of 1 week ago, I finally decided to take the plunge and have LASIK done. The surgery itself was quick and painless. I was also lucky enough to have Dr. Zabel is not only knowledgeable, professional and efficient, but he is also kind and took the time to talk me through the process. I was incredibly nervous going into the process, now I realize that this was not necessary in the first place. This was definitely a wonderful experience that I will continue to recommend to anyone who asks. Thank you to the LASIK MD Ottawa team and a huge thanks goes to Dr. Zabel.
Last week I had my vision corrected at LASIK MD Ottawa with Dr. Zabel. I was nervous prior to getting into the operating room even though I knew quite a few things about the procedure and what to expect. Dr. Zabel asked me if I had any questions and was very patient. His relaxed demeanor made me relax as well. You know you have a great surgeon when they greet you by your name and process your individualized information to really give you your optimal results. Before I knew it, the whole thing was over in a few minutes and I am really happy to say that I now see 20/20, and I haven’t experienced any post-surgery pain or complications. I 100% recommend this experienced surgeon if you decide to have your vision corrected here in Ottawa, and yes, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
I had my surgery last week at LASIK MD and it was an amazing experience! Dr. Zabel and his staff made the whole experience feel like a walk in the park. He was reassuring and calming. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! (Surgery was August 7,2015)
