Patient Comments (2)
in Brielle, NJ |
I was more than terrified of having cataract surgery and Dr. Senft was very understanding of my fears and very supportive throughout the entire process. A short time later I was away from home and had an eye problem. It was only "dry eye"; however, more than once during my out of town appointment, the local ophthalmologist mentioned how impressed he was with my cataract surgery and how fortunate I was to have had such a good surgeon. That sure made me happy!

Made an initial appt months ahead and two hours ahead of the scheduled time his office called to reschedule. I was the last appointment of the day, which was deliberate so I wouldn't have to leave work any earlier than necessary. Did not appear to be an emergency on his end as when I protested I was asked, Well could you come in 20 minutes earlier then? Clearly this rescheduling was primarily for his convenience, totally disregarding any inconvenience to the patient. Will NEVER use him now
