Patient Comments (2)
in Salisbury, MD |
She could stand to work on her "bedside manner". During my examination she commented to me about my preference to not take another daily medication unless it was absolutely necessary. Her comment was sarcastic, argumentative and overly judgmental of my personal choices. It was insulting and made me uncomfortable and defensive. I would have preferred she used the time to educate me as to why she felt the medication was important, what other options were available, or said nothing at all.
in SALISBURY, Md. |
Had $4000 out of pocket femto laser cataract surgery with toric lenses which resulted in serious streaks from light sources and far sightedness. Could'nt drive at night. After almost 2 mos. of no help and being made to feel like I was a nuisance for trying to get this corrected, I went to another surgeon who immediately corrected the light distortion problem. I would never go to this place again. My eyesight is too precious.
