Ratings for Dr. Asif Salyani
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.
Recently saw Dr Salyani for the first time not long ago. He was nice and somewhat informative but he lacks a bedside manner. And his staff seemed overwhelmed by all the patients. They tried to keep it moving but everyone there sat for ages waiting on one test. Over all it was an okay visit and I hope for my next visit it will be better scheduled and with any luck maybe not so many people
Thanks to Dr. Salyani, laser surgery on floaters in my eye has given me a much better quality of life. Reading and driving were becoming extremely frustrating, soon to be a thing of the past, until I was referred to him by my optometrist. The cost of the laser treatment was definitely worth it, and I would recommend it to anyone troubled by excessive floaters. I have seen him at both Pickering and Newmarket. At each visit Dr. Salyani took time to listen to all my concerns and patiently explained everything to me (perhaps a few minutes delay in seeing his next patient). His staff were pleasant and very accommodating in spite of how busy both offices are. Without reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Salyani and his staff.
