Dr. Mindel is the most heartless, disrespectful and probably unethical doctor I have ever met.

I went to Dr. Mindel for neuro-ophthalmology with a difficult issue, and he was able to give me information which the 2 previous ophthalmologists I saw had missed. He was extremely thorough in his examinations, took his time, listened to what I said patiently and answered all the questions I had....more

He was very dismissive and wouldn't let you get a word in at all. He seemed like he was only helping because he had to and there was no wanting to find any answers. I'm left with more questions than I went in with!
