Patient Comments (6)
Tallahassee, FL |
My first appointment started out badly. I was angry after sitting in the waiting room as a black curtain was growing in my field of vision. Less than a month later multiple breaks and tears were found and successfully treated. The physician's comments were reassuring, “debris in the vitreous can be normal following laser and should settle over time”. At my next scheduled post-op I was immediately hospitalized for an emergency vitrectomy with silicon oil inserted to stabilize the detachment.

I'm legally blind in the eye this butcher worked on, to much scar tissue. He's always late to scheduled appointments. If you value your eye sight, find another doctor!
