Patient Comments (1)
Woodstock, IL |
Misdiagnosed my basil cell carcinoma on my lower eyelid as a stye. He did not take a history, or conduct an examination at all, but defaulted to the dx of stye after a mere glance. Subsequently, the cancer grew larger and my Optometrist diagnosed it as cancer. Dermatology cut away half of my eyelid, requiring reconstructive surgery, and now I am permanently disfigured. One would expect that a competent ophthalmologist should know the difference between a stye and cancer.
