Ratings for Dr. Guillermo Rocha
I was scheduled to see an eye specialist in Dr. Rocha's office. I received a call from his office as to the time of the appointment and was told that it would cost me $250 for a test requested by my doctor. As I had had this done in Winnipeg for free I was stunned. As soon as I questioned the price, the receptionist became extremely rude and defensive. She asked me a number of times if I wanted to cancel the appointment and every time I told her no that I would pay the $250 and need to see my doctor. She told me she didn't like my attitude and I responded that I didn't like her's either. I later received a letter saying that my appointment was canceled with no reason why. I contacted my doctor in Winnipeg and was informed that I had canceled the appointment as I had refused to pay the cost of the required exam. That was an out and out lie. Lesson learned....do not question the costs in this office or they will cancel your appointment. The unprofessional conduct of this receptionist is appalling and if you have a choice, go to Winnipeg where you are treated with respect and care.
I recently had a corneal transplant and have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Rocha and his staff at the clinic and the hospital. Mt vision continues to improve and I have hardly any discomfort in my eye. We are so blessed to have this high-skilled surgeon here in Manitoba!
He butchered my eyesight as well. Removed cataracts and put in Symphony lenses. The best lenses around, apparently, except in my case of course. He initially admitted he was slightly off in the left lens but later backed off in front of a student he was helping. He said he would laser the left eye in Wpg but wanted another $1500.00 I already paid over $3600.00. But in front of a student he again retracted that idea. Said he could remove and replace the lens but he didn't think I'd be happy with it anyway. I cannot see distance clearly without glasses, get auras at night so cannot night drive and need glasses to drive or see tv. These lenses are supposedly 100% for distance without glasses, we'll make that 99 now. Not happy with my results at all.
Dr. Rocha is an amazing doctor! I had a traumatic corneal abrasion accident to my eye in Mexico. He has helped me immensely over the past 7 months! He is doing laser PTK surgery on my eye soon and I look forward to being pain free for life after it heals. He is the best and if you are lucky to get in to see him you will be healed.
In 2003 I flew from Calgary to see Dr Rocha..I had keratoconus and was wearing 2 pair of contacts just to see....I made many trips back to see him and would do so again in a minute as he inserted intac lenses in each of my eyes and I instantly could see. The he also did my cataracts for me......I how live in Kingston and this man is so good he is well know at the teaching hospital here at Queen's University......I owe this man a new sight.... Would also walk many miles just to get in to see him...Manitoba you are lucky to have this man in your midst......Sue McDougall ( Kingston )
Absolutely butchered my eyesight and has been indignant about the fact that he could've possibly done it. I've spent a fortune trying to see him again and again after the surgery but he keeps putting me through loopholes and still can't give me a straight answer as to what happened. Do NOT risk your eyesight with this man. His ego comes first.
