Ratings for Dr. David Maberley
Cannot tell you the amount of times we waited literally hours and hours only to be told sorry, we forgot about you. Ended up seeing another ophthalmologist at the eye care center and the difference was day and night. Maberley overbooks and we felt didn't care about us as a patient, charged 150 for an avastin injection, while another doctor did not charge anything. The mighty dollar is all this doctor cares about.
Dr. Maberley is excellent. I saw him for emergency eye surgery and he took all the stops out of the way. He was extremely quick to get me connected with other Dr’s that were equally at the top of their field. Was so nice to see there mutual respect for each other. The STAFF were very helpful and professional in every way. If you need specialized eye care- Dr. Maberley and his staff will take exceptional care if you.
Dr. David Maberley gave me an Ozurdex injection which damaged my eye. I refused this injection twice as my sight improved without medical treatment, but the doctor insisted I needed it. Four days after the injection I became blind in that eye, caused by the infection. My vision after my second surgery is 20/200, severe vision loss! Dr. Maberley abandoned me after the second surgery and sent other doctor to check my eye. Three months later Dr. Navajas said I should leave Dr. Maberley's clinic. The doctors never released any information about my eye infection and eye surgery. Since all this happened, I am fully dependent on my other eye (lazy eye). Now he arrogantly wishes me the best!!

Can not say enough about this excellent doctor and excellent staff. He is very busy but pleasant and easy to speak to you. Very grateful to him for all he has done to improve eyesight and his continued perseverance to a resolution. Office is very well organized given the different testing and imaging but any wait is no inordinate and totally understandable. Thumbs up in all ways to this doctor.
I have seen Dr David Maberley several times over the years ( about a decade). I have always found his staff very courteous, helpful and professional. My experiences on my visits with Dr Maberly were always excellent. I have always received with respect and courtesy. The care I received were always superb and I never had anything to complain about. I have seen respectful professionalism given to others. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr David Maberley to others. Dr Maberley will continue to be my ophthalmologist in the coming years.

I lost my vision in my left eye because of Dr Maberley. He arrogantly believes that the world revolves around him and his practice, even at the expense of his patient's vision. I had an eye emergency and was unfortunate enough to see this doctor on call. He hides behind his "I'm very busy, and very have an abrupt bedside manner because I am an expert and can save your vision" rhetoric. In fact, I was referred emergently to see him from one of his close colleagues because I needed a retina detachment repair within hours according to my doctor. My doctor reassured me that Dr Maberley knew my situation. What transpired was one of the worst experiences in BC health care that I have ever experienced. First off, no one knew who I was when I registered at the hospital for my emergency appointment. Then, I spent hours waiting to see Dr Maberley but instead saw his "fellow" doctor instead. The fellow doctor relayed the information to Dr Maberley but instead of having surgery within hours, I had to wait until the next evening to have surgery. I met Dr Maberley just before he cut my eye open. He did not exam me, but I am assuming he relied on his junior doctor's report. After surgery, I was told that there was too much damage, and I waited too long for surgery. Really? Why didn't Dr Maberley see me himself while I was in the hospital to assess how urgently I needed surgery? His colleague assured me if I could get a repair within hours I would be fine. Why didn't I have surgery on Saturday instead of Sunday? Dr. Maberley is either too busy or too lazy to check patients requiring emergency surgery. When I asked him personally why I did not get the surgery a day earlier, he was nonchalant about one of the biggest losses of my life. Dr Maberley, I am fortunate enough to have not lost a parent, or child during my time on this planet. I did however, feel as if I lost my most important sense because you did not feel like my case was urgent enough for you to see in the middle of the night. Is blindness really worth 50 seconds of your time?
I am from out of town, Dr Maberley saw me on a holiday weekend for a complex retinal detachment which is considered an emergency - I asked him to give me the information to me straight up as all of this was new to me and a surprise - and that's what he does. If you are going to lose your sight, there is no other way to tell you than to lay it all on the table - he gave me all the information about my issue and potential outcomes, but in reality, they don't really know - eye issues are a wait and see game - pardon the pun. The good news for me is that after 3 more surgeries to follow up the initial surgery he did to save my sight, I went from 20/400 to 20/40 and am thankful for his quick action getting me through emergency surgery and on my way to my home. Yes he is busy, but I felt I was in expert hands!
