Patient Comments (2)
I went to the him with what I believed was pink eye. He was very rude and said it was just allergies or something in my eye and it would be fine. He figured this out by spending less than five seconds looking at my eye. Several days later my eye was much worse and I went back. He was extremely insecure and defensive. He looked at my eye and this time admitted that it was pink eye. He is literally the worst doctor that I have ever been to.
He misdiagnosed my eye problem and on a return visit he was very rude. He comes across as very incompetent and unsure of himself. His bedside manner is pathetic. I will never return to his services and would recommend anyone else that needs an eye doctor to look elsewhere.
