Patient Comments (3)
in Hoffman Estates, IL |
Very knowledgeable--he can get short at times but he's dealing mostly with older folks who can be trying. H e generall has a room full of patiemts so his time is pressed. He's down to earth when you talk to him and a caring individual.
in Roselle, IL |
he seemed to be distant for the reason I was seeing him for. He was talking in medical jargon and not being specific.
in Schaumburg, IL |
I waited six hours to see him to get a retina tear diagnosed and repaired. He was irritated, rude and impatient. The only reason I didn't walk out was because I had an emergency and no other options. Emergencies have to be the only reason why he sees any patients at all. Also, he rebuffed my questions on the latest laser technologies, which was probably a good thing for me because I wouldn't want a 70 year old working on my eye with a laser.
