She cancelled two appointments I had made months in advance, one only two days before the appointment, without providing guidance to another opthamologist or an explanation. Her next available appointment was another two months out. I did have an appointment in 2016 and yet her office said I would be considered a "new patient" after 2 years without an appointment. Never going back.
