Patient Comments (4)
Saddle River, NJ |
While the doctor may be ok, the practice is EXTREMELY unprofessional and rude. I had a question about the charge, the lady just yelled saying "Don't come here anymore, this way we don't overcharge". When I asked to speak with the doctor, she said that their policy is the doctor never returns patients calls. Save yourself a headache, find another practice.
Ringwood, NJ |
Dr Saunders is a great doctor; listens, answers questions, very positive personality. However, the office has changed under Valley Medical Group and it's not good. Rude staff, much higher billing rates than Ridgewood Ophthalmology. Old office was great, easy to schedule, never waited long to see a doctor, they greeted all the patients by name. New office could not care. Not happy with the change at all.
in Bergen County, NJ |
I would highly recommend Dr. Saunders. He is a good listener with practical and helpful advice. I am happy now that the practice accepts Medicare because I really did not want to have to find another opthamologist. I return to that practice because of him. It is very important to whom you trust your eye care to and have confidence in. Front desk staff could be curt if it is a non routine issue that needs attention and follow up.
in Glen Rock, NJ |
He is focused on you and provides simple explanations for your procedure.
