Patient Comments (2)
in Reno, NV |
After very good experience 11 years ago, we were shocked at what has become a "mill". The initial exam was thorough but more time was spent with "selling" an upgrade to basic cataract surgery. The time spent with Dr. Chaffin was 3-4 minutes, no even enough time to formulate questions about what is a major decision. The majority of the time over 2 visits was spent with the "sales" personnel posing as technicians, and the finance department. We will not have surgery or return.

The doctors entire business seems extremely shady and completely aimed at maximized profits over the needs of the patient! They are salesmen who try to upgrade (and up-sell) the services to the patient. If you question the expensive services they recommend they repeat the same rehearsed sounding lines and then the nice demeanor changes quickly to being rude and defensive. The procedure was cancelled and we are finding an honest office that sees a patient and not a payday!
