Ridgefield, CT |
Saw Dr. Finlay for a dry eye. Turns out I had glaucoma in that eye. I opted for laser surgery, which she did then and there. It took 5 seconds, literally. She's got all the machines in her very pleasant, relaxing office, which is right in town, a mile from my house. Easy to park. Wonderful assistant and receptionist. Totally efficient. Took my insurance. Love it!

Dr. Finlay is a knowledgeable person with a kind, low key personality. It's easy to get an appointment. You don't have to wait multiple weeks to be seen by Dr. Finlay regardless of the type of appointment needed(emergency or check up). She's thorough & uses updated equipment. I find that although she provides information, she doesn't always offer details unless asked. Also noted, maybe it was an off day, but some of the equipment needed to be swiped with an alcohol pad prior to next patient.
