Patient Comments (2)
I came to Dr. Gilbert with an unusually complicetd eye history, including multiple eye injuries and surgeries. Over the last 3 & 1/2 years, he has cared for my vision with great skill, professionalism, and real compassion. For these, I am sincerely grateful.
South Windsor, CT |
Worst patient/doctor rapport ever - poor disposition and very clinical explanation. Did not want to answer my questions. Appeared that I was taking his valuable time. He said I needed a corneal transplant. Referred to his ass't to set up surgery, but it couldn't be done for 2-3 months. Went for a second opinion and learned that it could be something else. later determined by 2nd doc to try steroid eye drops, b/c it was a virus in eye and surgery not needed. Bad attitude and bad diagnosis!
