Three hour wait. No reason or explanation given by front office staff. Front office management needs to improve time management and/or how patient appointments are scheduled during the day. Some patients were quite elderly and they also waited 2 to 3 hours with some in wheelchairs. I don’t know how they waited so long without food or water and sitting in one place for so long. The front office staff showed no compassion for those in the waiting room...we were just ignored as they chatted about their children etc.. One gentleman in his eighties with a cane and by the way, I know his age because you can hear everyone as they check in and their answers, asked how much longer of a wait. Response you’re in the line and not much longer that’s all I can tell you. Dr. Shildkrot spent 5 minutes with me.

I can't recommend a more highly specialized Ophthalmologist. My surgery for a torn and detached retina performed at 11pm went beautifully and the aftercare well explained and followed closely by Dr Shildkrot and his staff. The Ophthalmology department at the university is excellent...therefore also very busy and often emergencies come up, so that accounts for the long wait times, but I never felt rushed once it was "my turn"I'm so fortunate to live in a city with such an excellent Physicans.

Dr Shildkrot was peasant and compassionate. He was able to explain my diagnosis and answer my questions so that I understood what he was telling me (an important ability that some medical practitioners seem to lack!).
