Patient Comments (2)
in Buffalo Grove, IL |
The office has no sink to wash my hands to remove my contact lenses. No patient privacy. Office staff does not know how to put in IV, didn't ask for help until I was crying in pain after being poked 3 times. He doubles up as the photographer.Dr. LaFranco spent 5 minutes with me.
in Glenview, IL |
Dr. Lafranco destroyed my eye after an operation to remove a macular pucker from my retina. He caused a hole near my macula as well as a scar, neither of which can be removed. My vision is permanently distorted.
