Patient Comments (2)
Belleville, IL |
He acts like he is doing you a favor by seeing you, and is short and annoyed when you ask questions. He seemed in a rush and I do not feel he checked my eye situation thoroughly. Terrible bed side manner with an attitude that could care less about your problem. I do not trust him to take care of my eyes.
