Patient Comments (2)
in Norfolk, VA |
I visited Dr Kerner every 6 months for 4 years. At least 2 years ago I began having light flashes in one eye which I reported to Dr Kerner because it can indicate a detaching retina. She poo-pooed it and said I didn't need treatment. I changed to a Dr who is head of Ophthalmology at Sentara and teaches at EVMS. He said he could see that I had a retinal tear causing the light flashes and that I needed laser surgery immediately to prevent a detached retina. Had laser surgery and no more flashes!

Office staff members are not pleasant. Very difficult getting appointments. Staff was lazy in obtaining information from my previous doctor, which was from another state.
