Patient Comments (5)

Office Visits - I have waited to be seen anywhere from 15 minutes to 60 minutes. All of the employees I have had contact with are professional and caring. Dr. Kaswinklel is thorough, makes the patient at ease and instills confidence. My surgery experience was positive.

I feel like I have adopted Dr. Kaswinkel into my family as my son. I have to see him frequently for my eye problem. His staff has always treated me real nice. He actually saw me out having lunch one day and remembered me, he waived at me!

I have been coming to Dr. Kaswinkel for 8 years for my cornea transplant, glaucoma and diabetic eye exams. He is very thorough and explains things well.

Absolutely awful, no chairside manners. He said he wanted to see me back in a year. Fat chance of that! There are so many Dr.'s out there. In fact I have seen Dr. Erdey and Searcy years ago and they were both fine but Dr. Kaswinkel lacks customer service and was downright rude!

I am a cornea fellowship trained ophthalmologist also specializing in uveitis and glaucoma. I handle many referrals including difficult cases involving anterior reconstructive surgery and chronic problems requesting second opinions. I am an associate clinical professor for the OSU Optometry instrumental in training tomorrows future eye care providers. As a patient oriented physician, I have been supportive to my patients whether dealing with acute issues or lifelong debilitating diseases.
