waiting time is more than an hour from schedule appointment time is too long

November 16, 2016

My appointment was for 2:00 pm. I did not see the doctor until 3:35. Appointment times should be respected. I was early for this appointment and did not expect to wait over 1.5 hours.

Dr. Loewen is excellent

October 19, 2016

I was very pleased with my care from the beginning (getting the appointment) until the end of the appointment. I was referred to Dr. Loewen by one of his receptionists, a complete stranger, on a bus ride. I am so glad for her, and everyone who played a part in my getting the treatment that I need for my eyes!!!

I am extremely happy with the staff at the Eye Clinic and especially my eye doctor, Nils Loewen. He performed a surgery for the cataract of my right eye. All the measurements of my eye condition were correct to the effect that now with the new replacement lens I see 20/20. I could not be more pleased.
