Ratings for Dr. Simon Warner
I went to Dr. Warner to find out what was causing the pain and burning in my eye but apparently, my symptoms are not serious enough for him. He made me feel like an idiot for even coming to see him and said demeaning comments to me throughout the appointment like "only 1 minute of pain? I thought we were talking about hours here." Apparently, my very real symptoms and feelings of pain are not severe enough to be taken seriously. Unless you are dying of pain, don't bother coming to see him.
Had 'floaters' and flashes of light. Called the office and was squeezed in that same day. Dr. Warner examined me and diagnosed retinal tears. He immediately booked me in to a retinal specialist and I was there 10 mins later! Excellent service as always with Dr. Warner!
When he's in a happy mood he's a great doctor and is able to explain the diagnosis quite clearly. When he's rushed or in a bad mood I find it difficult to talk to him about the ongoing problems I have with my eye. He could do with a bit more sensitivity training.
After reading the comments I felt confident seeing Dr. Warner. When I went to my appointment Dr. Warner was over an hour late for my appointment. Once he met with me he initially appeared superficially kind but somewhat passive aggressive. He told me that I was worrying about "nothing" and that the growth on my eye was "just a sac of fluid". He followed that by saying that if I was noticing the growth then I was obviously "not working hard enough". He then tried to convince me to get laser eye surgery. When I told him that I have chronic dry eyes (had even gone to a consult for laser in the past) he continued to try to convince me. He spent more time trying to convince me to do laser eye surgery than address my actual problem. In the end he defensively stated "I don't run a laser eye practice so I'm not trying to make money off of you". He did not provide me with any relief for my eye. I've since learned that the growth on my eye will likely need to be surgically removed.
Dr. Warner is a thoughtful, warm and very knowledgeable doctor. He listens wonderfully, takes time to explore with you what's been going on and different options for care and is compassionate. I feel very fortunate to have found him years ago.
I was reffered to Dr Warner by my GP and another Opthamologist for a problem inside one of my eyelids that had been festering for 4 months.. They both could not diagnose it. Dr. Warner found it within the first minute of his exam and prescribed the medication which cleared up the condition in a week! Such is his abilities as an eye specialist. The receptionist...... I guess she's efficient... but certainly needs some people skills especially for such a busy office... were not a passenger on an amusement park ride you know!
