Asheville, NC |
Last summer Dr. Switzer performed emergency detached retina surgery on my eye. I believe he did high quality work on my retina, did excellent follow-up care, and he has remained very supportive when I see strange things and get scared. Yes, his bedside manner can be abrupt, but he has always answered my questons clearly. After all, I did not hire him for his charm, but because he's a good doctor.

Second visit- I am changing my star rating on this Dr from a 1 to a 3 since he called and apologized for how the first office visit went. He also scheduled me to see the other Dr in his office the next day to help DX my eye problem. The other Dr was even on vacation and came in for me! You can read about the first visit below which he apologized for. I trust this Dr to assess vision issues as long as he listens to you.

Very rude, would not listen, kept interrupting. Delayed surgery on a fast progressing case in which emergency surgery should have been performed.
