Brought my 7 year old daughter for red eye and exam. She was nervous before Dr Bainnson came in. As soon as he came in he made her feel so comfortable and was very informative. She was so happy after the positive experience . She recommends him to all children!

The staff were very unprofessional. They were engaging in common chatter while attending to patients. The doctor told me I had some developing cataract but did not elaborate or offer to explain what I need to do regarding this matter.

Unimpressive. Dr. Bainnson might have years of experience, but it has left him with no bedside manner. I am hesitant about certain things in an eye exam- nervous, instead of asking me about what it was that made me nervous, he berated me. He belittled me. I am a primary care provider myself, I am thinking he probably did not realize this- not that he asked anything about me, or about other concerns I may have- he missed the chalazion that is forming on my eyelid- I mean a complete miss- I went to a second clinician- a totally different experience. So, no. Slow down, take your time Dr. Bainnson, you are a king is some arenas, but in the exam room, you are #2. Your job is not to bully a person into care, but to make a person feel at ease. The bottom line, none of my patients will be referred to Sight MD. Shame, because one of your cataract surgeons is very talented. Dr. C. mom loved him.
