Ratings for Dr. Asif Salyani
I have seen Dr. Salyani on 3 very brief appointments. After waiting 2 -3 hours plus each time he pops in talks to you with his back facing you, says little, then out he goes. He is rude and disrespectful. It made me feel like I was cattle. I had a problem with my inner upper eyelid, it was red, swollen, itchy. He took a quick look, said everything was normal. It was far from normal, the next day the sty broke. He did tell me if it was still bothering me in a month, he would send me to one of his friends that knew more "about those things" I was a nurse for over 40 years & have come across many arrogant physicians and he is right at the top!!
Disrespectful and rude! He overbooks his patients and when the time comes to meet with him, he barely acknowledges your presence. There should be some kind of governing body that can supervise how many patients he books in a day. Kindness and compassion goes a long way, he has neither of those.
Several patients arrived at the doctor office at their scheduled appointment times and ended up finding the office was closed for that day. The doctor office had failed to make appropriate re-scheduling when the doctor cancelled working for that day....The patient time is also very valuable.
I have seen Dr Salyani on 4 occasions having been referred to him by my Opthalmologist in Orillia I found him to be excellent in care and even though you wait for a while to be seen it is worth the wait He explains what he will be doing and I can now see again after not having full sight for about 1 year I had a vitrectomy and am so thrilled with the outcome He is very personable and I found humerous The staff are great too Newmarket and Maple facilities both excellent
Dr Asif Salyan Is very disrespectful and a completely arrogant jerk! I would not have him touch my eyes even if he was the last surgeon on the planet and it meant that I would go blind! He doesn't care about his patients, he speaks horribly to his staff and thinks he is better than others. My wife accompanied me to my appointment and when he entered the room he did not even acknowledge her presence and when I said to him after 10 minutes into the appointment, "this is my wife" he simply ignored her and said "I'll speak to her later". He could not even turn to her and say "nice to meet you" and then when we asked him questions, you was completely condescending. My wife and I are intelligent, well educated people and it did not take long for us both to decide that this doctor would not be touching my eyes! A doctor needs to have compassion and empathy when dealing with patients and something as critical as a persons eye sight. No way would I let Dr Asif Salyan near my eyes nor would I recommend him to 'anyone'!
I was referred to Dr. Salyani by my Ophthalmologist and Optometrist for one large floater and many lines in my right eye which were the result of an eye injury from a fall. After a thorough examination of the eye Dr. Salyani advised me that he felt he could help me with my eye sight with laser surgery. I was more than willing to proceed with the laser surgery if there was any hope to improve my sight. Dr. Salyani performed the laser surgery and it was 100% successful. I am very grateful to Dr. Salyani for his knowledge, expertise, gentleness and support throughout this process. Thank you doesn't seem like a grand enough statement to say to someone who has restored your sight. I came out of the surgery crying with happiness and unbelief that my eye was restored to its perfect vision. R. Fenwick
I was referred to Dr. Salyani by my Optomotrist for a problem with epiretinal membrane, floaters and cataract issues. Dr. Salyani explained very thoroughly what I had and my options even though I seen him at the end of a very long day, I'm sure. I found him to be very professional and very caring. My vision was failing me and Dr. Salyani operated on my left eye October 2015 at his state of the art facility in New Market. He performed surgery for my floaters and advanced cataracts and also did a Vitricrectomy which included a lense implant. Because of his brilliant mind and very skiled hands I just thank God for this gifted surgeon. My eyesight has been fully restored and is now 20/30 in my left eye. Since that operation Dr. Salyani performed cataract surgery in my right eye and also a lens transplant at the New Market facility in October 2016. My eyesight is now 20/25 in my right eye which is just incredible. I cannot thank Dr. Salyani and his friendly staff at both facilities enough. Dr. Salyani is truly a gift to all of his patients who have experienced eye difficulties and have been at risk of losing their sight. All of my follow ups have been a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Dr. Salyani to all who can appreciate what a brilliant surgeon this man is. Ivan Kehoe
Referred to Dr Salyani for a macular hole and was very fortunate to have surgery the next day (prior to Xmas Holidays). Was treated with sensitivity and respect at all my visits by Dr. Salyani and staff. Wait times reflect the great need for opthamologist care and the dedication of staff and Dr, to serving all referred patients in need of this specialist health care. Length of time for improvement in vision was fully explained by Dr, Salyani. Follow-up retinal lazer was completed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this physician for full opthamology care. Keep in mind that not all vision problems are correctable . I would most certainly put my faith and trust in this Dr. if further surgery is required in future.,
Yes, the wait times can be long, but as Dr. Salyani spends time with the patient appropriate to their needs, this must be expected. Excellent manner, and to the point. My right eye was completely blind from a vitreous hemorrhage. A cataract/vitrectomy operation later, my vision is completely restored. I'm very thankful for Dr. Salyani's skill. Wait times would not be an issue if there were more ophthalmologists out there with this Dr.'s training.
