He is probably a very good eye doctor, but he has no beside manner and absolutely drives me in anxiety. I have never had a doctor raise his voice or yell at me. What in the world? Someone, stick a needle in his eye while having his head firmly held and a device put in his eye while getting stuck with a needle. Please let him feel what his patients feel. Also, what is it that he asks what the patient wants, so the blame is on us if something goes wrong? This is what you wanted?
