Ratings for Dr. Edward Margolin
Went with my father to see Dr. Margolin for his glaucoma appointment. Overall good experience but I wish I had more time to ask questions. The good thing about his office is that you can do all the testing there (unlike other doctors I've seen).
Long overdue review here: I seriously injured my eye 3 years ago (it was crushed) and all ophthalmologists told me there's nothing they can do (or wanted to do). I saw Dr Margolin and he said he will attempt to stabilize it. Thanks to him, I went from seeing nothing but light to seeing some general outlines of objects. Considering my eye was completely destroyed, it is a miracle!! He saved my eye! thank you thank you thank you!
Good doc but long wait. He is a neuro-ophthalmology specialist so if you have a neurological type eye problem he's best to see. I also spoke with some patients in the waiting room and they all had just cataracts so I think he does general cases too.
I saw Dr. Margolin many times and sometimes the wait is short and other times it's long...but the secretary told me that it was gonna be long so I was prepared and brought a book! He has been managing my glaucoma for a few years now. I had to book extra appointments because I have a lot of allergies to eye drops and had to change my drops often. He always saw me on short notice and changed my prescription when needed. Doing well now!!
You can count the number of doctors who do what Dr. Margolin does - neuroophthalmology - on the palm of your hand. The number that do it as well as he does is even smaller. Because of this, he has a long patient list and has to be very efficient when managing it. This is probably the reason for why some perceive him as abrupt. As a student, I have never seen him be abrupt with those patients whose conditions merit urgent and complex care. He has a near encyclopedic knowledge of neurological disorders of the eye, which are usually devastating diseases. If he says you will be fine, trust him.
I waited for 3 months to get this appointment with Dr. Margolin at Bathurst/Eglinton. I was first called by a student, then saw another doctor and then finally Dr. Margolin at the end. It was a long day and took almost 4 hours but they did warn us about that. I was told later to get an urgent blood test and MRI and Dr. Margolin and his staff really made sure that I got it soon (within a few days). I'm very grateful for that. I came back for another appointment and Dr. Margolin explained my condition to me very well. He answered my questions and I felt satisfied. I'm coming back in a month. Although I'm very upset with my condition right now I have to be honest that I feel like Dr. Margolin is really doing everything he can to help me get better. I would recommend him.
