Patient Comments (2)
New York, NY |
Knowledgeable enough but seemed to have zero interest or concern in you as a patient. Flat affect and disinterested. I wouldn't go back.
in New York, NY |
I had eye issues that did not have a single perfect solution, but depended on weighing risks and benefits of the options. Dr. Solomon was my partner in decision making. He provided detailed information and made sure that I completely understood all of the information. The decision was clearly mine, but he helped me make the best decision for me. I decided on surgery and am thrilled with the results. Perfect results, better than expected, improved vision. He doesn't sugarcoat. Straight talk.
