Patient Comments (1)
Hacienda Heights, CA |
The pre-exam eye test is done in a room where other patients sit. There is absolutely zero privacy and everyone could hear exactly what the assistants tell you about your health - this in itself violates doctor-patient privileges. The doctor is patronizing and talked to me like I was a child. He recommended surgery as a potential option for my eye stye, which I did not opt for. Later, I am notified by his office that I had a "removal" of the eye stye. This is a blatant lie. Avoid at all costs.
