Patient Comments (13)
Gettysburg, PA |
Dr. CHOTINER gave me a near iol lens after cataract when I asked for distance. Post op, the lady next to me got far. I got hers and she got mine. Square eded lens gave dysphotopsias. I asked what are we going to do about this? He told me to get on line and find about 6 or so lenses that don't cause this, and bring them in next week and we'll discuss this. WHAT!!!! I did just that. I went back the next week, and he said he didn't know what they where. Had to look them up. No response.
We are unable to identify a patient of record who presented with these concerns. However, please do not hesitate to reach out to us, 717-657-2020, and ask for our Practice Administrator who will be happy to address any issues that may be had. Best wishes.
