I have been using the Retina Eye Center since April 2018. The staff and Dr. Demediuk have been professional and courteous. During this coronavirus pandemic, the office has maintained high standards of cleanliness. The treatment of my retinal bleed has been efficient and on point. I have been very pleased. I can still see.
I highly recommend Dr. Dhaliwal at The Retina Eye Center. He is helping my husband get his sight back (we had no hope left until we met Dr. Dhaliwal). He is an amazing surgeon, he kept us well-informed, and he cares. His staff are professional and nice. The office is clean with COVID-19 standards in place.
I can’t say enough good things about Dr Dhaliwal! I am more than pleased with the treatment I got there ! He is very professional, caring, personable and best of all so knowledgeable and great at what he does! My eyes deserve the best, and so I never mind waiting when I’m there.
Dr. Demediuk did a fantastic job explaining my situation and answered all my questions. With over 30 years of experience, I don't think I would trust anyone else to take care of my eyes.
Thankful that the Retina Eye Center has been able to save my eyesight for many years.
Wonderful experience at this office! Dr. Dhaliwal and his staff are very professional. I recommend them to everyone.
