I think Dr. Sobol is amazing, very nice & he knows what he is talking about & explains everything to you.
in Uniontown, PA |
Everything is great except for figuring out when Laurel Ridge Eyecare is actually open to pick up your glasses. The hours posted on the front door say open 9-5 on Wednesdays, but they apparently close at 4:30...? And when you call the office at 4:39 to ask what's going on and someone inside actually picks up to tell you this, they're still closed? And an opthamologist's office can't afford the $10 and 5 minutes to post the correct hours of operation on their front door? Very inconvenient.
in Kitty Hawk, NC |
He is a condescending, arrogant and opinionated person. He hears what he wants to hear, and makes diagnoses based on his preconceived opinions. His sarcasm is not appreciated, and his documented notations have made sure that I am switching doctors as fast as I can. Patients want an advocate, not an adversary .
