Dr. Zlioba has a great bedside manner and is extremely knowledgable. He did a thorough history and eye examine me that I've referred both of my parents to him for cataract surgery. They also are very impressed with his kind and compassionate care.

I am personally sure this must be a misunderstanding, and a big one at that! I have, on rare occasions, personally advised a patient that they should consult their difficult problem with a university level specialist. I have NEVER asked any patient to leave my practice. If insurance has changed, or for any reason at all, my staff and I have NEVER withheld patient records. I would personally apologize, especially for a misunderstanding caused by my office.
