Patient Reviews (2)
in Littlestown, PA |
My experience with this office was first rate. Although there was a bit of a wait, it was worth it to me because of the total professionalism I experienced from the screening staff/exams to the visit with the opthamalogist, who was very sensitive; responsive to questions/concerns and appeared to be extremely knowledegable and competent.
in Hanover, PA |
There were mostly elderly patients in the office. Patients were being brought in by van from nursing homes. I spent more time with the technician than the Dr. He examined my eyes gave me a diagnosis. I had questions and he directed me to a web site to read about my condition. Patronized me like I was an elderly person when I asked about losing my independence from losing my eye sight. Said I will be able to pick out my clothes and dress myself like that's how I define independence. Ugh!
