Patient Comments (1)
in Chambersburg |
Had cataract surgery, we agreed upon a certain iol to be used. He then changed his mind. When I tried to discuss this with him he got angry. I went through the surgery and now I have more issues. I tried to talk to him about this and once again he got angry, said, I just have to live with it! Couldn't even reasons with him. All I got was he's been doing this for 20 years!
