    This doctor is rude, arrogant and doesn't communicate. He kept pushing laser surgery on me without any tests on the first visit. I had to learn about it from someone else who worked there. I spoke to the manager about this and it seemed like this wasn't her first complaint. This doctor is terrible. The eye institute is not. I'm now with a different doctor, same institute. He also hurt me during a test. He suggested the woman hold my head in place, instead of putting in more drops.
