Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Loushin "As a comprehensive Ophthalmologist I see pts for general eye care and am a member of Northwest Eye Clinic, a multispecialty eye clinic that can treat nearly any eye condition. In addition to routine eye exams I perform LASIK and other refractive surgeries and have a large dry eye, diabetic eye care, and glaucoma practice. I have a strong interest in eye health, nutrition, and disease prevention. I am one of a handful of Ophthalmilogist to earn Certifiedboard Nutrition Specialist status."

Very unprofessional. Waited over an hour for a 2 min appointment . Hardly glanced at eye. Asked no questions. Became defensive and rude when we asked for more information. Also, the above photo cannot possibly be the same disheveled person we interacted with.
