Katy |
The staff was great, the Dr. Was awful (which is usually the opposite). After dilating my son's eyes, he didn't even bother looking inside of them, just told me to patch one eye. We do not have cross eye, and on my question what would patching do for us, he told me " I just told you, patch it". No explanation whatsoever. But because I Do want to understand what is going on with my son's eyes, I asked again. But all he said " I am repeating myself to you, Patch It". Very rude and disrespectful

He is a great caring doctor. My son had eye surgery at the age of 3. He did everything to make us feel comfortable. At our first appointment after the surgery, he went out of the way to check on my son. I can tell that he genuinely loves what he does. His staff is also always very happy and welcoming.
