Patient Comments (4)
Great doctor, love him! Spends time and explains but his Afternoon staff is rude and I've never been to a Drs office where I felt unwelcomed when I walked in and treated as if I was a child. Second visit, same thing.

I found Dr. Memmen to be curt and trying to sell me on laser surgery. I had a second opinion from a trusted ophthalmologist and was told that it was not necessary for me to have this surgery at this time. I felt that he should have been more courteous to me and not tell me that I should not be his patient if I did not take his advice and have laser surgery, which turns out, at this time, is unnecessary for me to have. He told me "I don't want to be responsible for your going blind".
