Dr. Yamina Fodil-Cherif failed to treat my injury properly and failed to provide sufficient and proper info. and I am now shocked and quite bothered why I was even referred to this Ophthalmologist from a walk-in clinic.

My experience was amazing the staff and Dr Demong was very nice and polite. My waiting time for my consultation was 5 mins. My surgery date was on Oct 14, 2015- for both my eyes. I was super excited and not nervous at all. It was a freaky procedure to be awake and see what was going on, the flip, burning smell, lots of pressure but NO pain at all.
When I came out of surgery my eye were gritty, and could barely open my eyes. My eyes were sensitive to light, you had to wear the sun glasses that they provided you with. All I wanted to do was sleep, so I did but made sure I took my eye drops. The next morning, wow I could see clear with a bit of haziness. The recovery time was amazing I was able to drive two day after and went back to work the following Monday.

The overwhelming joy you can't imagine. My vision before that was -11 and -9 nearsighted and astigmatism and I'm 36 years old. I went to a few different practices, and they were not able to correct my eyes or I wasn't a candidate for Lasik. Well they were wrong.
Thank you!!!!!! To Dr. Demong and staff for all your hard work I am so grateful. It's been 6 days now and I'm still in shock that my vision is amazing 20/20.

Dr Chow was abusive to my elderly father when he did a Yag procedure on him. My Dad has moderate dementia and I was unable to go into the laser room with this. I sat him down and got him settled. I was right outside the door. They prepped my Dad and were about to start the laser when my Dad moved. Dr Chow began a HUGE tirade to my Dad about moving. I was standing outside the door and they never once told him not to. Dr Chow kept orating to my Dad until my Dad said I get it. I totally get that patients can't move during this but maybe, just maybe they should communicate this to their patients. Especially the elderly ones that may not understand this. After the procedure was done I came back into the room and all of a sudden a sweet Dr Chow started talking to me. I do not know how the staff work under such condescending doctors like this. If you get recommended to this clinic I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I have had laser surgery on both eyes with no problems in a different city. Then I had my left eye redone with no problems. In both cases, there was almost instant improvement in my sight.
In the summer of 2013, I had my right eye redone at this clinic. The result was terrible.

My left eye was strong on far sight, and my right was strong on near sight. I wanted to increase my far sight vision
on my right eye, so I went to this clinic for the procedure. The procedure cost quite a bit more, as my eye was treated
before. Right away, I knew something was wrong. Very poor near sight and very poor far sight. I waited a week and
no improvement. Even the optometrist was silent every time I went in for the required follow ups.
Eventually I went back to this clinic and a tech spent 45 seconds testing my vision and wrote down that I had 20/30 vision. A different doctor came in then, since the one who completed my procedure was not available. She asked why there was a problem, and I told her how I can't see near or far and that 45 second eye test was not accurate, I can guess what the letters are during the eye test, just by the blurry shape.

So later that month, I did get to see the original doctor and he indicated that there was abnormal cell growth and
that is why I can't see and they will have to do another procedure. My vision was bad from the minute I left the
procedure room, so this theory indicates that cells instantly grew after the procedure to wreck my vision.

I had the second procedure and my far vision is a little better but my near vision is extremely poor. I need reading
glasses to do anything. I need them for my job, shopping, using a computer, plugging anything in, and of course
I basically went in with vision that was not too bad to ending up with wearing reading glasses most of the time. The
reason I originally had laser vision was to not have glasses.

I might have believed the story about cell growth if it wasn't for a few things. I have had my eyes done twice before
as I indicated and the great results were almost instant. This time, instantly bad results, so I don't believe the
abnormal cell growth story. Before the procedure they put a name tag on my right side. The staff told me they do
that so no mistake is made, correct person on the correct eye. Were there previous incidents where mistakes were made?

When I entered the procedure room, the nurse said to me, "So today we are working on the left eye". I said "No..., my
right eye is being treated". So now I am convinced they used the wrong procedure setting on the equipment, as how
could my vision end up being so wrong.

I've spent thousands of dollars on the procedure, losing wages for taking time off work and expensive optometrist visits to end up with worse vision. My quality of life has gone way down.

Now this clinic has not abandoned me. I still have another visit and there was talk of a more invasive procedure, but
I think I have had it with the procedures which have wrecked my vision. Maybe that was the plan after all; wait me
out as it has been 10 months now and I am ready to just suffer with my poor vision.

I'm sure 95% of the people who have visited this clinic have walked out with great vision, but sadly, not me.

I have not been to another ophthalmologist clinic, so this may be an unfair assessment. However, over the 5-year period of visiting there on a regular basis, the average waiting time can be noted as 1 hour and more. There have been occasions where I waited nearly 2 hours for a 5 minute time with the doctor to look at my eye. In the initial stages of my visits, Dr. Demong showed concern and care. However, recently, he had trouble remembering why I was there for, nor even a simple smile or a friendly hello. It made me very feel very uncomfortable and not genuinely looked after. After an year of visits to prepare for a laser procedure, he concluded on my recent visit that I am not eligible for it, which I do not understand at all. He recommended me to go see an optometrist for a lens/glasses, when in the beginning, he clearly noted that they would be no use due to my corneal condition. I have come to believe that Dr. Demong is a very skilled and renowned eye surgeon. However, I honestly have to question his genuine concern for patients, and maybe his memory regarding details or his previous assessment, because they are contradictory.
