Patient Comments (2)

Avoid this eye doctor at all costs!! Waiting room time is absolutely ridiculous. Over 1 1/2 hours! He treats cataract surgeries are like a revolving door. Spends no time with patient. Medicare or not, save your time and money. Horrible wait, can't understand himm because he speaks too fast and just...more

Long wait, felt rushed. Worst of all, he did not measure my pupillary distance and, even worse still, he DID NOT SIGN MY PRESCRIPTION. I was not able to get glasses outside of his office for this reason. Please go elsewhere for an eye exam.
