Patient Comments (4)
TX |
Experience here was not good at all.
in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Neelakantan double or triple schedules patients for the same time slot. Average wait time ranged from 4 to 6 hours. My cataract surgery scheduled for 1:30 pm did not happen until close to 5:30 pm. Finally left the office at 6:10 pm. Time spent with me, the patient, averaged 4-5 minutes. - At the same time, the office staff was friendly, helpful and professional. - The waiting room chairs are uncomfortable and grouped too close side by side.
in Wylie, TX |
I was examined a month ago and was diagnosed for narrow angle glaucoma, which I did not even know I had. Dr Neel did a laser procedure on the very same day and another 2 weeks later. I had to wait but the girls working there were very friendly and made me as comfortable as possible.
in Desoto, TX |
He does not spend enough time his patients. He is always in a rush and wait time at his clinic was ridiculously long. The doctor saw me for total of 4 minutes and I was at his clinic for more than 6 hours. He however was not able to diagnose my problem and come to a solution but recommended to the Retina Center next door.
