Brooklyn, NY |
just received a call (at 4:30PM) telling me i had they were canceling my appointment that is tomorrow morning. I have been suffering with so much pain for the past week and looked forward to finally getting it diagnosed. The woman that called me suggested I call his other clinic. NO ONE answered and there is no system to leave a voicemail. Most ophthalmology offices are now closed and I will continue to suffer until i can find a new doctor at a different office!

I previously visited Dr. Dessner for an eye emergency after a previous doctor I went to couldn't help. Dr. Dessner was able to diagnose my condition and even tell me about some other issues I may want to take a look at in the future. He was very knowledgable when it came to explaining my diagnosis . I was able to obtain an appointment same day, and the wait was very short. I was in and out in no time. His facility is impeccable! I will definitely keep him as my doctor for my eye care needs.

This was one of the worst doctors I have been to. He has terrible bedside manner. They rescheduled me for two separate appointments, less than 24 hours before, causing me to choose between a serious eye problem and work. I had to miss 1/2 of a day of work because of Dr. Dessner's complete disregard for his patients time. But worst of all he missed a serious condition in my eye, that my GP saw immediately. This man is a terrible doctor, with no manners. He does not care about his patients at all.
