Patient Comments (4)
Spring Valley, CA |
Spent 2 1/2 hours in the office to have the doctor spend no more than 2 minutes. I didn't feel like he spent any time getting familiar with my medical hisotory or my needs. Very impersonal and arrogant.

I have been visiting the SD Eye Clinic for three years. In that time, I've seen three eye doctor's. Each was helpful, respectful, and attentive. I never had to wait long, and there was always parking available. Today, however, I saw Dr. Bokowsky. I waited 2.5 hours, there was no parking, and the Dr. was rude, gave me no time, berated me for not bringing in my drops, said I had no eye disease, and refused to treat me because I tried a natural remedy. His manner and attitude were atrocious: F-
Dr. Bokosky came highly recommended by my optometrist. He is an extremely talented surgeon. However, he has his staff schedule 10 mins per patient, so he has little or no time to answer questions. My other docs couldn't get him to return their calls. During my surgery (conscious sedation) , he made several comments about the importance of making big money, so I think that's his motivation. I had to find another very talented surgeon, one who truly cares about patients and medicine.

Outstanding doctor but works to the whims of poor schedule. Highly recommend.
