Patient Reviews (1)
Cabot, AR |
Horrible...1 1/2 wait when I had an appt. 5 rushed minutes in office with me for pre op cataract surgery. On day of surgery, had a medical issue (bloodwork showed) that surgery should have been postponed. When I had questions about a problem I was having post op two days later, was accused of not listening, he was verbally abusive to me, and basically said I would be escorted out because I felt a wrong lense had been put in, was having pain and twitching...he didn't address it, was unethical
Most doctor pad their ratings with selected patients who will make their score higher. I don't do that because it seems dishonest. So a few disgruntled patients try to hurt us on health grades, we understand. I know that these don't represent the thousands of happy patients we take care everyday, always striving to serve and give them the best result. I hold no ill feeling toward this patient and sincerely wish the best for them.

I grew up in Conway and married my high school sweetheart, Nina, also my nurse. We have one son who speaks Hebrew. I gave up golf for being a shepherd. I love making blind people to see and thank God for the gift of steady hands.
