this guy detatched my retina.

Dr. Corwin is a no nonsense guy., don't expect a lot of small talk but know that your questions will be answered. Totally trust him and that is most important since meds are injected into my eye every 2 months or so. Wait time varies according to how many appointments are before mine and how long it takes for all of us to go through each part of the exam. Usually spend and hour, maybe a bit more.

Average experience
Ventura, CA |
Dr. Corwin was deceptive about the need for surgery when advising a procedure that he performed at his own clinic in Thousand Oaks. The surgery failed nearly causing blindness.He performed a second surgery to correct the first. I lost faith in Dr. Corwin and went to Jules stien Eye Institute at UCLA. They said that the first surgery was completely unnecessary and that the damage it caused will require further corrective surgery to prevent loss of vision.
