larkspur, ca |
Correction on my previous review. Dr aguil called and apologized. He explained he had some unexpected personal emergencies. All is well.
The doctor was very nice and I had a thorough examination. I have vision in only one eye, in the other I am probably legally blind. When I get a prescription I have plain glass in the bad eye if not I get sik to my stomach and cannot see clearly. After I saw the doctor I purchased a pair of progressive when I wore them I realized there were prescriptions in both sides. Called office, receptionist rude, insisted I come in for an exam, asked to have dr. call. Never heard from him.
