This doctor had good reviews and good credentials so I trusted him to remove a pterygium in my mother's eye so she could have cataract surgery. I'm not sure what happened during surgery but afterwards she was in incredible pain. When I called the office the week after surgery I could only speak with the surgery scheduler who I am not sure has any medical training. She kept saying pain was normal, and just wait for the follow up appointment. She said he was not available by phone, email or text. At our appointment Dr Salib seem worried. When I asked him what was wrong he said nothing and gave us instructions to follow. After more visits and his continued denial that anything was wrong two weeks post surgery he finally told us that a hole had developed in my mother's eye--which he tried unsuccessfully to treat--and we had to go to the ER at UCI immediately. It was too late to save the eye, and my mother had to have a cornea transplant and now has lost most of the vision in that eye.

Great visit
My appointment with Dr. Salib was incredible. His staff performed several tests to get the best information about my eye issue. Dr. Salib then checked my eyes and was able to set up a procedure to correct my issue. I am very satisfied with the results and highly recommend Dr. Salib.

I have been a patient for over 15 years. Dr Salib is courteous and very thorough. He has a professional and courteous staff who make sure you are comfortable and they explain everything that will be done. The combination of a top inotch professional in Dr Salib and a trained efficient staff is unbeatable. I referred 2 of my friends to him and they share the same opinion.

I have only been to my initial visit, but was impressed enough to schedule my next visit. The facility was very clean, the staff was knowledgable & friendly and Dr. Salib reviewed everything I included in my new hire paperwork. Additionally I did not feel rushed, he gave me plenty of time to ask questions and explained next steps due to issues I was having. I recommend him highly and will update this as I continue to work with him.

I have been with the OC Eye Institute for several years. Dr. Salib and everyone there is of the highest professional quality I’ve experienced anywhere. Appointment times are respected, the staff is topnotch, the medical assistants efficient and courteous almost to a fault, and Dr. Salib himself is among my favorite providers (and I have a LOT of doctors and specialists!). Highly recommended.
