Patient Comments (4)
Olean, NY |
I do not recommend taking your child to see Dr. Reynolds. I took my young daughter to see him 3 times before switching to another pediatric ophthalmologist. During all 3 visits, Dr. Reynolds was rude to my daughter and myself. He was impatient, scolded my daughter when she tried to have polite conversation with him, and repeatedly spoke to me in a condescending manner when I asked reasonable questions about her eyes. On top of all that, during 1 visit we waited almost 2 hours to see him.
I'm horrified that my daughter was subjected to such demeaning treatment! My sweet 15-year-old had a treatment unresponsive swollen/droopy eye for two weeks. Dr. Reynolds was extremely rude and shamed her for coming to him for such a "minimal" issue. He pontificated about "serious cases" where "patients' eyes are red and swollen shut" and that her issue was all the way on "the other end of the continuum," then scolded her for using her eye drops too much even though it was taken as prescribed.

If you are able to get an appointment with another Pediatric Ophthalmologist in the area, I'd recommend you doing so. The staff was fine...but Dr. Reynolds lack of bedside manner was ridiculous. The whole appointment, which lasted 3 hours, was uncomfortable and concerns of ours were downplayed and/or dismissed. Dr. Reynolds barely made eye contact with me and instead, focused on talking to my husband, even when I made a comment or expressed a concern. Very disappointing.

This was the worst drs. Office i have ever been to. I spent more time waiting then i did seeing an actual dr. I was at the office for over 2 and a half hours for eye exam. They were apparently over booked and it was a diaster
