As happy as I was with Dr, Konowal and most of her staff will not use her practice because of her office manager Ms. Karen. The words that come to my mind is not something I would put in writing. She (Ms. Karen) does not belong working with people. Rude would be an understatment. Shame on her.

I had a retina, tear and she saw me the same day. She referred me to their retina, surgeon, Dr. Richard Sherman who performed laser surgery the next day. All records were sent to my Maryland OD and laser surgeon who were clear about my care. With confidence, I recommend the practice.
