Patient Comments (1)
Bakersfield, CA |
I told them I am allergic to all of the Caine drug. They used them anyway as I was asking if the drops they were putting in my eyes had Caine drugs and they said no. Minutes after leaving his office I was in my primary care doctors office, red from head to two and throat fighting up!! The offices were filthy! Will never go back!!! Would not recommend!!!!
