Dr. Wakil was very knowledgable and took the time to explain things to me.

Staff goes out of their way to make your visit as pleasant as possible-who likes dilating drops anyway? Could work on the wait time, but while being seen, I never felt rushed. She does a very thorough job in explaining concepts and answers questions fully. If she's unsure of something (rarely) she'd ask the opinion of another specialist related to the problem and will follow up with you. If you're expecting to be in and out in thirty minutes go somewhere else, but Dr. Wakil is worth the wait!

Excellent Doctor , caring, knowledgable, takes her time to discuss issues, listens , great staff

I have been seeing Dr Wakil for 8 years. I like her very much; she has a straightforward manner, is a clear communicator. I do NOT like the wait time. Only once have I waited less than an hour beyond my scheduled appointment time. I have learned I must allow 2 1/2 - 3 hours for any appointment. Each step (seeing each technician, having pressure measured, etc.) involves additional wait time. Having to devote an entire morning or afternoon to seeing one doctor is excessive!
