Thank you for taking time to share your experience.

He was not accommodating for my disability request letter, and he was quite offensive in his remarks about taking my eye muscle disability seriously. I would not recommend him or his office, Columbia Eye Clinic.

I strive to treat each patient with with care and respect. It is the policy of our practice to provide disability documentation based on the physician's medical evaluation of each patient's individual condition. I am always happy to provide a referral to a specialist if a patient seeks more insight on their particular medical condition.
