Dr. Tweeten was very rude. When I asked questions, he barely answered, and made me feel stupid for asking the questions in the first place. When I expressed concern about being able to see better without my glasses on at the end of the appointment, he handed me my new prescription and said, Well, don't expect this to change anything. It was the worst experience I've ever had with an ophthalmologist.
