Patient Comments (1)

My 2 year old daughter had an appointment with Dr. Durso. He was unfriendly, rude, & didn't listen to what I was trying to explain to him. He brushed us off and the whole appointment felt like a waste of time. Felt like he just wanted to check my daughters eyesight with dilation drops to get paid ....more
